Just off the main drag in increasingly happening Healesville, this subterranean bunker wouldn’t be out of place in the city. The building is one of the most striking in town, a collection of warm blond wood slats standing to attention like a bundle of matchsticks, and inside it’s a contrasting mix of genres and textures.

The recently revamped Modern Australian menu from ex-Gigi Baba chef Trevor Schneider features generous share plates and rich flavours at great affordable prices.
Please note, the menu is designed to share and seating is available from either, the bar, table or lounge areas. You may request a preferred seating style, however, we may not be able to guarantee your request, we will certainly do our best to accommodate your preference, thank you for your understanding.

We really enjoyed our evening here! Service was perfect, attentive but not too much. Our food was amazing and we were fully wined and dined in under an hour and a half!
Will definitely be returning on our next trip to Healesville

Had a great time at Herd. The lamb entree was so delish. The staff was so helpful as we were tourists and trying to find a place to do a nice little hike in the area. I was even a pain and asked for an off the menu cocktail and she delivered. Such a good spot with great staff :)

Really loved the restaurant and the food was stellar! We weren’t expecting good tacos outside of Southern California and were pleasantly impressed with the menu. Really lovely time, and our server, John, really made our evening feel special. Excellent service!

Our group was very satisfied with our Mexican meals - most of us ordered the $45 feed me option which is excellent value for money and gives you a broad introduction to the menu. My personal highlights were the guacamole which was fresh and tasty with just enough zing; and the fried chicken wings and sauce that were perfectly cooked and probably the tastiest chicken wings I've ever had. We shared five different tacos, all of which looked delicious, plus sides of beans and sweet potato fries, finishing with churros and chocolate sauce. The service was great, the menu was well explained, and dishes were brought and collected very efficiently. There is a wide range of drinks available, from ciders, beers, local wines, cocktails etc. The décor is trendy and relaxing and there is a great vibe to the place. Overall, this is a top notch experience, the food is on par with the best you would find in the inner city, and is streets ahead of your typical suburban Mexican experience. It was the #1 rated place in Healesville and I think it deserves that rating.

Great service indeed. Had the Portuguese chicken & enjoyed it. My husband ordered grilled pork ribs, unfortunately very dry & lacking flavor.

Nice place for a good meal. Being in the basement it was quite dark to walk into but we soon adjusted to the light. Good food without being too exotic. I can recommend the chicken wings
