We were so pleased to at last meander around Cloudehill that we - didn't realise it at the time - thought that the restaurant would be fabulous. It isn't. It's pretty basic. The food is good and that is probably the most important thing to remember. There is not much seating outside although the inside is good. However, for us... More

Situated at Olinda in the Dandenongs, this place offers a quiet, relaxing venue to sit and enjoy the area. Attached to the Cloudhill Nursery, for those garden fanicers there are plenty of plants and many other garden related items to peruse, and yes to buy. it's difficult to walk away without purchasing one or two items. Reasonable prices also makes... More

This is a step up from a cafe. Lovely main meals or share plates but not snack food. Lovely coffee and deserts, if you are there for just an afternoon tea. Best to book but have been able to have afternoon tea without booking before. I have been here many times over years, but it could be months between visits.... More

Close to our home, love the food and the garden view is beautiful even in winter. Our elderly aunt enjoyed it last summer, so we hope to take her again soon (wheelchair accessible but talk to staff when you book) Great too for lunch outside on a sunny day.

Chatterley's a great day out for young and old, with option of exploring the multiple private gardens, for a small gate fee. Enjoy the view on the restaurants window seats if you can book one. Service good but menu maybe a bit limiting, the vegetable tart is always popular, licensed and well worth it, a lovely devonshire tea at good... More

Dropped in for Mother's Day without a booking. They fitted us in and made us feel very welcome. Lovely atmosphere. Great meals and a pretty outlook. Would come here again.

We felt like the gardens were a mixture of 'The Secret Garden' and 'Alice in Wonderland'. It had an amazing amount of blossoming flowers and native birds, but most of all we liked the statues, and gateways to new areas, each one with a character of its own.

Take note that you have to now enter through a property called RANGEVIEW. One gets three gardens and nursary in one visit. Maniquered to perfection. You can also stay there if desire luxury. Great restaurant though may have to book at touristy times.

This is just about the best place in Olinda - quality, value for money, great food and friendly staff. Its on the road Olinda to Monbulk... More
