Stopped in for lunch and treated myself to lobster. Unfortunately it was overcooked and underwhelming as a meal. Although the lobster was charged grilled, it was clearly overcooked as the meat was tough and dry.

We had a very nice day in lovely Healesville. Giant Steps is a pretty impressive place. The wine tasting area is a very authentic experience, with some delightful wines available. The restaurant is quite spacious. None of this pushing past other crammed-in tables. The atmosphere...More

Complementary wine tasting is offered here which is what we tried today. Friendly service but the wines weren’t to our taste. Would have loved to have stayed on for lunch and enjoyed the ambience but had to head back to the city.

Nice place with good service. We only had lunch we didn’t do wine tasting. Food was nice just maybe a slightly limited menu. What we had was good.
