From the Grill at Fondata 1872

Join Fondata by the open fire Wednesday and Thursday nights for Fondata from the grill. Designed for sharing, enjoy a two course dining experience, featuring specialty beef, with side dishes and a classic Italian dessert.

Fondata is the contemporary revival of the iconic Weller’s, a place where city style meets country hospitality. The vista from the main dining room is across the stunning rolling hills of the Yarra Valley. The homestead was once a coaching inn and supply store, was the major stop for ‘’Cobb & Co’’ coaches bound for the goldfields of St Andrews (formally known as Queenstown). Now a much-loved destination for our warm hospitality, Italian inspired food, unique landscape and locally sourced wines and craft beers.

Situated at the gateway to the beautiful Yarra Valley, approximately 45 minutes from Melbourne.
