I had a fantastic lunch here with a wine tour group. Most of us had either the salmon or the steak. The steak was great and perfectly cooked to our liking (medium rare). You can request for your steak to be done to your preference. The salmon was tasty and the skin was crunchy. The salad and sauteed vegetables were... More

I came here for dinner on a Saturday night. I had beef carpaccio and my boyfriend had a quail salad- both were very nice. For main I had the crab and prawn pasta which was oily, bland and needed some kind of sauce like a bisque rather than just herbs and oil. Very disappointing. The steak seemed well cooked so... More

I came the first day for a tasting - generous, yummy, small tasting charge ($3). The next day, I returned for the set-menu lunch. It was delicious and well-presented. I had Calamari, then Salmon, and finished with a lemon tart. All quite good.

Visited for lunch on a winters day. We had the set price menu $45 for 2 courses and a glass of wine. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals, I had a glass of their sparkling, which I did not think so great. Service was very good, meals came out fast and hot.

The Saturday lunch crowd was mostly bus tours. The food was OK but nothing special. The wine list was minimal and everything seemed to be too much trouble for the staff. Dessert took 40 minutes to be served and coffee didn't make it at all. At one stage a gentleman, who I assumed to be the owner, rudely interrupted our... More

Polite, attentive, friendly service. Beautiful food; prepared, cooked and served to perfection. Great wine. Plus we received a complimentary bottle of wine on leaving because we had waited a short time in between courses. Exceptional customer service! A fantastic setting with lovely views of the Yarra Valley the restaurant having a comfortable, friendly atmosphere with tasteful decor. Undoubtedly one of... More

Although the weather was cool and cloudy, you can't beat the views from Tokar. Friendly service, good food and a lovely Pinot made the afternoon special.

The night we arrived it was relatively quite, the staff were lovely, very engaging and attentive, going along with all our poor attempts at humour. Very helpful suggesting wines to go with our meal. The meal itself was lovely. We shared a calamari entree, my sister had a steak which she said was perfect and I had a pasta dish... More

I have been to wineries all over the world over the last 10 years and this was the first time ever I have been told the cellar door was too busy for a tasting. I arrived just as a couple not as a tour group. Tokar is part of the 'small wineries' group who pride themselves on small winery mentality.... More
