Where to get a great steak

26 Feb. 2021

Feeling like steak for dinner tonight? Well, you've come to the right place on the internet. We've listed some of our favourite places to grab a steak in the Yarra Valley - where you can pair it with a lovely, local wine.

1. Dominique Portet, Coldstream

Step into the family Bistro and experience a touch of Bordeaux hospitality at Dominique Portet in Coldstream. Dinner for two – easy – dry aged 600 gram ribeye, Cabernet sauce, Paris mash. The signature Steak Frites Classique is a must have on the French inspired menu, a collaboration of tradition, fine local ingredients and a truly open mind. Matched with a perfect red by Portet, a ninth-generation winemaker, you’ve got all you need!

2. Fondata 1872, Kangaroo Ground

Tuck into a 250gm Grass fed porterhouse steak with shoestring fries and bearnaise sauce at Fondata 1872. You’re invited to raid your own cellar and bring that favourite bottle of wine you’ve been holding on to for a special occasion. That time is every Wednesday night!

3. Healesville Hotel, Healesville

have a grand reputation for their outdoor grill and great southern grass fed 350 gram sirloin, cooked just the way you like it. Enjoy a glass of red in the garden while chef adds the finishing touches to your perfect steak, and eat alfresco or inside as you please.

4. Fergusson Winery, Dixons Creek

Offering their signature dish, the prime aged Charolais Beef, slow roasted on a wood fired spit and personally carved just for you. Served accompanied by a must have Yorkshire pudding – resistance is futile (there’s also a kid’s size steak available too, so no one misses out).

5. Dixons Creek Cafe Bar and Grill

A much loved destination for families and casual diners for lunch or dinner. Steaks featured include a char grill rump, scotch and T-Bone and a good ol’ school mixed grill for when you want everything. Lots of options for the non-steak eaters among you too. Slow cooked, wood fired, pasta and seafood – all the good stuff. Craft beers and ciders complement a strong local wine list so there’s lots of reasons to try something new.
