Lovely place to be at to enjoy a beautiful lunch with good friends. Located in Coldstream in the yarra valley ranges, we came up to enjoy a birthday. Great wine to enjoy with great food and company. Great location, the restaurant at Tokar Estate was set up nicely. Staff was busy on this Saturday lunch but we had reservations so we were seated on time. Menu was a bit hard to order without recommendation from the staff ti go with certain wines. I very much enjoyed the day, it was pleasant and food wait time was reasonable. Will definitely be back.
A beautiful setting in the summertime when the roses are in full bloom, we returned on a blustery winter day to find the whole experience leaving us cold.
A year earlier, we enjoyed a wonderful lunch with truly excellent service so were keen to return for more of the same but instead got very slow service and mediocre food.
Seated next to the cutlery and crockery dresser, our table suffered from the constant noise and interruption of banging doors against our chairs and clattering silverware.
After twice asking to place our order, it was taken half an hour after we arrived and we then had to wait a full hour for our food toread more
A quick wine tasting to start our Tokar Estate experience. The wine here was great. The staff extremely helpful & informative. Some of their varieties were world class (not that I can really judge, I've got a decent palate but I'm no pro). Next we dined in at the restaurant. Lunch (at least on weekdays) has the option of A La Carte or a 2 course option with a free glass of (selected) wine for $34 at the time of this review. We opted A La Carte for the greater choice but if I were to return the special would be how Id go. Look the service was good. Not impeccable though. Our mains arrived without or sides. When queried they had ran out, failing to inform us until asked. New sides were delivered (free of charge) but by the time they arrived the mains had already been finished. OK we were hungry, and they were tasty (though not that sizeable) but still, sides with the mains people! Anyway, despite this if I was in the hood Id probably return, but just make sure youread more
