The TarraWarra Estate property is internationally recognised as the place visit in the Yarra Valley, rooted by the estate’s respect for sustainability and provenance. Our subterranean cellar door makes for an unforgettable tasting experience, while head chef at our restaurant, Mark Ebbels, creates a menu inspired by our kitchen garden and local produce.

Whether you linger here for the day surrounded by native bushland and waterways or drink our labour of love at home, TarraWarra Estate always finds a way to leave an impression.

Very welcoming into the restaurant the ambience of the restaurant was first class and our waiter Jade looked after us and could not have done more for us. It was our wedding Anniversary and were given a welcoming champagne to celebrate our day. She answered and explained the menu and suggested appropriate wine to go with our meals. A first class experience.

Our experience of TarraWarra was great from my initial enquiry about a booking, to my request for a special plate. The tasting room staff were very good, the waitress was excellent and the Manager was most helpful. The gallery was enjoyable. The ambience was perfect for our group of 7 ladies and the choice of music was appropriate. All 7 of us were thrilled with our food and drinks.

TarraWarrra for lunch was an excellent choice. The online booking is easy, the location great. Staff friendly and attentive, and the food interesting, tasty and well presented. Ease of access to cellar door to choose wines to match our menu also worked well.
A modern but quiet restaurant with excellent food and beautiful surrounds.
Well done!

When you are handed a menu that has a limited number of options you know that the kitchen is putting in the effort to make each special - and they were. The only quibble I have is that the descriptions of each dish were not very illuminating. One of the specials of smoked potato sounded very similar to another main (Smoked potato / dashi / pink pepper / apple). When we quizzed the waitress it became obvious that it was in fact a pork dish. I had this dish and the pork was amazing and the smoked potato only secondary. I think that they need to think about how they describe their truly amazing dishes. It was a lovely lunch.

What a lovely experience. Food was innovative and generous. Staff attention was perfect. The winery is beautiful. We came partly because of the gallery which was unfortunately closed, but the day was fabulous. Couldn’t have had a nicer time.

We went TarraWarra for lunch. We had been to TarraWarra previously and were extremely pleased with our experience. Our experience this time was equally as good. The meal, service, the total experience was excellent. Olivia looked after us with the assistance of a few others. All of the staff were very good. The cost v quality and service represented good value. We will be back.

Tarrawarra is a beautiful estate and the restaurant is beautiful.
If you like Chardonnay, Tarrawarra has a great selection. Otherwise they had a lovely rose’ and sparkling wine.

We returned to Tarrawarra first the first time in a couple of years, and as our previous experience, we enjoyed it very much. A super selection of light dishes suitable for lunch, and of course their own wines and great service made it a very enjoyable experience

It was a magical experience. The food super delicious, the presentation was unforgettable, simply art on a plate.
Staff very attentive but at the same time not “ pushy” or intrusive.
The nature- relaxing, the lake with the cute ducks was amazing.

There was not much complaint. But there was nothing to write home about. For a restaurant that prides itself on innovation, the food is quite average, wine just ok. It would be quite good for an average restaurant. But for one with so great rating, it is a disappointment.

Fantastic location with great views over the vines and forests surrounding the estate. Food was unbeatably fresh, with most of the produce sourced locally and homemade where possible (even down to their own house olive oil).

An excellent dining experience from start to finish. A good menu well tailored to the wines available. Everything was better than expected even if some of the items were not quite what we expected. These were pleasant surprises of the kind one expects from a restaurant which is a little adventurous. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her trout. My brother thoroughly enjoyed his chicken. My niece and I thoroughly enjoyed the kangaroo. A serving of desert for my niece's birthday was a nice touch. We do not attend Tarra Warra frequently but we noticed some improvements on what has always been an excellent venue.
