The service was flawless. From bread baked in the Aga, to smoked hand-churned butter, our vegetarian meals were thoughtful and exciting as was the wine list. Dinner was served in a beautiful setting - we were even invited to take a stroll through the kitchen garden and view the smokehouse. A romantic night to remember...thank you.

Coonara Springs gave us an experience to remember. We sat in the beautiful manicured gardens, tall magnolias blossoming above. The staff were the most warm and friendly I have ever encountered and attentive. The food by Adrian was delicious and plentiful. He even makes his own bread and butter, smokes produce and uses fresh vegetables from the garden. We had... More

We wandered in with some trepidation expecting the usual cafe fare during a rare and impromptu visit to the Dandenongs . I had fond memories from my childhood over 50 years ago of an elegant restaurant with wonderful views and a magical garden and I was pleased to see it still operating. As the Wednesday set 3 course menu progressed... More

Everything about Coonara Springs whispers understated elegance and impeccable attention to detail. The setting is truly breathtaking - beautifully maintained grounds nestle in the trees, but with a vista stretching for miles, it feels like dining in the world's best tree house. The welcome was charming and the staff remained warm, friendly and attentive yet discreet. It is wonderful (and... More

A destination restaurant set in seven acres of landscaped gardens with views over the Yarra Valley. Modern Australian food with a hint of nostalgia from the past. The 90 year old weatherboard property has recently been restored, celebrating its glorious history of entertaining since the 1920's. Enjoy the light filled restaurant floor overlooking the gardens, the lounge rooms next to open fires in winter or the private dining room for special events and weddings. Adrian the chef prides himself on both growing and making, follow a produce to plate philosophy, tending his veggies in our extensive growing areas which guests can walk around. Don't forget a visit to the spring if you feel like a longer walk, and book our outdoor dining tables during the summer months. Enjoy locally sourced wines, home made breads, butters and ice-cream! Amanda or one of our team look forward to welcoming you to Coonara Springs.
