On a weekend wandering through Yarra Valley I found this amazing place. Dame Nellie Melba's favourite homeground which is now an estate with small museum-like exhibition, vineyard and restaurant. Entry is free but restaurant is famous so good to book in advance. Dame Melba was an Australian opera singer and she travelled around the world, became very famous as a... More

As a group, some were happy and some were disappointed. The burger was not a generous serving For winter, no soups were on the menu which was frustrating and disappointing. The meals were overpriced and not much choice for a winter lunch. The service was okay but limited. The views and buildings were interesting with the sun shining on the... More

We went with a group, met our guide at the office, who took us on an excellent tour of the gardens, very beautiful, just a shame it was cool @ dull.

A beautiful lunch was had in the charming surrounds of Dame Nellie Melba's homestead. The homestead has been extended to accomodate a lovely dining area. The food & local wines were impeccable as was the service. It is so great to have such a first class restaurant in our lovely Yarra Valley.

Celebration Lunch. Required to wait for table service. Meal was delicious but overpriced. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Lovely atmosphere but noisy during lunch.

I took my elderly mother and aunt to Coombe farm for a birthday treat. I booked the limited edition tour that looked at Dame Nellie Melba's house that concluded with a tasting plate and wine from the restaurant. They are still talking about it weeks later that it's one of the best things they had ever done. The house is... More

Visited Coombes on Father's Day...it was everything I had hoped for for Dad - excellent service, ambience, food and wine. In short exceptional and a great place to enjoy and celebrate any occasion in style and at a leisurely pace. A pity we could not tour the grounds but we will definitely be back to explore the history, grounds and... More

I was taken here for lunch on Fathers' Day. It was my first time there. I have often driven passed, as there are many great eating places in the Yarra Valley. But without doubt, Coombes is the best, hard to fault. The setting in Dame Nellie Melba's former home, the ambiance, the blending of the past, its history, with today's... More

We booked in for Father's Day lunch about 2 weeks out and were very lucky to get the last table for 6. The restaurant and grounds are magnificently presented and walking into the restaurant it has a wonderful feel and comfortable surrounds.
