Our seasonal menu is drawn from our kitchen garden and local suppliers.  Drawing inspiration from what is ready to pick, Mark Ebbels food combines innovation and extensive technical skills to produce food that is fresh, complex, delicious and delightful.

2 courses for $70pp or 3 courses for $80pp


Born and bred in the Yarra Valley, Mark Ebbels penchant for championing local and seasonal produce stems from growing up on his family’s vegetable farm. He recalls fond memories at home cooking hearty, country-style meals with his mother and grandmother, intuitively allowing the season to dictate dinner.


The garden represents the soul of the restaurant. More than 40 edible plants –including leafy vegetables, berries, herbs and fruit appear on our menu at any one time. Because we pick ingredients in their prime, our menu changes as often as the weather in which they’re grown.
