yering station wine bar

Set in a handsome stone building separate from the cellar door at Yering Station this cafe style restaurant boasts a menu that would not be out of place in a top city restaurant
I think our waitress might have been in the job for a very short time but tried hard to please
Food:The confit leg and rolled saddle of rabbit with braised olives and carrots with vanilla and vincotta dressing looked good but tasted very ordinary and for $17.5 was a very small serve
The ocean trout cutlet and grilled scallops with caramelised angel hair pasta, beetroot pickle and saffron sauce was disappointing and my sirloin steak on a bed of celariac ( which tasted like half cooked potato) was undistiguished.
The lime and vanilla cream brulee with quince fritters was made with gelatine and tasted like it.
Wine: There is an extensive list - not only their own wines and very reasonably priced
Price: Entrees about $17 Mains $28 -$32 Desserts $12.5
Comment: There is a wonderful view of rolling hills but i'd go somewhere else for food as it is far too expensive for what you get
Score 12.5/20

Yes I agree the food was average and the service was poor and also overpriced.

Agreed, There are great restaurants in the Yarra such as Bella Vedere & Locale @ De Bortoli that we have been to.

Hi Anon,
We ate an impressive, beautifully presented, fixed price set menu at Bella Videra two weeks ago which left yering station for dead. It was Saturday night so the only problem was the view. Sandra had to look at me all night!!
