More info


Leon and Rita Tokar are dedicated to ensuring that Tokar Estate is a warm, inviting retreat for all those who visit. One of the primary draw cards for this restaurant is the opportunity to soak up panoramic views of the surrounding vineyards and mountain ranges. On top of the magnificent landscape, the Tokar Estate Yarra Valley Winery Restaurant serves up sophisticated dishes with strong Italian and Spanish influences cooked with gusto. Making the most of the region's liberal supply of local produce, the chefs often adjust the menu to make sure the freshest seasonal ingredients are put centre stage. The décor of the restaurant is clean and simple with the opportunity for slow breezy lunches on the outdoor deck during summer.

Sumptuous yet understated entrees include specialties like smoked trout and spanner crab, and artichoke and pumpkin ravioli. Mains offer a range of rich Mediterranean style meat and vegetarian dishes. The positively sinful dessert menu includes winter favourites like bread and butter pudding, as well as delights for warmer weather such as the summer berry pudding.

The Yarra Valley's cool climate, combined with restricted yields from the vineyard allows Tokar Estate to produce premium wines of first-class quality which display a lingering palate and fabulous aromas. Their signature wine is the 2006 Tempranillo - a superb Spanish varietal. Tokar Estate is first vineyard in the Yarra Valley to produce wine from this variety. The Restaurant serves Tokar Estate wines (many by the glass), along with a handpicked selection of other drops.

My husband and I decided to dine at this restaurant on the 9th of July 2016 and we were very impressed. As we dine out quite a bit and our families are involved in restaurants we have a good understanding of food and service . The food at Tokar was absolutely tasteful and it was obvious it was cooked from the heart . Simple presentation but made your taste buds dance. From entre to dessert it was perfect. Anyone whom appreciates quail this entre is a must. Quail can be tricky to get right and this was perfect. Perfectly cooked porter house and pork. Service was spot on and very attentive. Can I tell you I loved this place at night as it was quiet and romantic and my husband and I were able to chat . To the owners of this phase be proud of your staff the lovely service was appreciated . This place would be amazing for lunch as there are beautiful views but I imagine it wouldn't be too quiet as it is for dinner. Will definitely go for lunch on a nice sunny day. Thank you for a lovely experience
