When the Tokar Estate label was launched, Rita and Leon Tokar served wine and food to customers in their home. Their hospitality continues today in our picturesque restaurant and cellar door. The Mediterranean inspired building was designed to both take in and enhance its incredible surroundings. It is the ideal location to soak up the beauty of the Yarra Valley, with sweeping views over the gardens and vineyards to the mountain ranges.
RESTAURANT & CELLAR DOOR
Wine and food can be enjoyed in a variety of ways – à la carte, set menu or more casual cheese plate. Our menu changes regularly and reflects the surrounding region with modern Australian cuisine with elements from Eastern Europe. Our aim is to provide you with an enjoyable meal and experience, the food is hearty & honest and we make you feel at home. Our ethos is about minimising waste with a Nose to Tail approach for all our menus. Come and drink in the views while you dine in our newly renovated restaurant or on the deck.
