Eleonore's Restaurant

In a word Eleonore’s Restaurant is elegant. Named after Eleonore de Castella, wife of the original Swiss developer of Chateau Yering, this award-winning restaurant honors Eleonore who became one of Melbourne and Victoria’s most popular and sophisticated hostesses in the mid 19th century. The ‘high society’ of Melbourne journeyed to the Yarra Valley for weekends of fine dining and wining. ‘She entertained her guests in a grand manner.’

Today a team of international chefs continues her tradition and while guests settle in to witness the distant purple hills change colors at dusk through the floor to ceiling windows of the restaurant the kitchen prepares and presents dishes that have won both national and international acclaim. Awards have ranged from being the winner of Australia’s Best Fine Dining Restaurant to 13 consecutive years holding a prestigious Good Food Guide One Hat Classification. The food is created around local produce and the menu changes seasonally.

To complement the creativity and quality of the food Eleonore’s wine list draws on the finest wines.

The original bluestone wine cellar, built in the 19th century, is home to some of the finest Yarra Valley vintages, Australian premium wines and of course a hand-picked selection of the world’s best. Let us help you decide or re-introduce yourself to your favorite wine.
