Food was excellent with a huge rap for the char grilled brocholini. Manager was very generous in providing a complimentary drink due to a slight delay in service. Added bonus for our 21st wedding anniversary
A friend visited on the weekend and mentioned how fabulous the food was. It's was our wedding anniversary so we tried it and we were very impressed. Gr8 food, friendly staff, attentive service and really lovely atmosphere. Can't believe we haven't been for years. We'll be back. Thank you.
Beautiful food, wine and ambiance. Can be somewhat noisy. Have been numerous times and will go again. Looking forward to being outside on a warm summer’s evening
Fondata is one of our 'go to' places - food is always consistent and the atmostphere is lovely. They have the best arancini ever! Highly recommended for dates, friend catchups and celebrations :)
The occasion was my wife’s birthday. We had a lovely time - the staff were most welcoming and the food was excellent. We will coming back soon and will be booking for New Years Eve!
Fondata was beautiful , the food outstanding the service and atmosphere outstanding had a beautiful evening and the desert to die for!!! thank you so much.
The restaurant has an incredibly gorgeous view of Dandenong Hills. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. Although the menu is limited but I still find it interesting. I loved my main course the most, unfortunately the dessert was a disappointment as it wasn’t as good as last year - 2018. I ordered the exact same thing but the chef this year - 2019 didn’t do a good job because he used cheaper ingredients. The lighting makes the atmosphere very romantic and warm but it’s definitely not great for taking photos.
What a delight! I lived locally and visited the old Wellars many years from the 1990s through to 2011. Returning today, we were treated to amazing service, food and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. The renovations are fantastic and the new team and owners have brought the class back with Fondata 1872, just as it was in the early to mid 90s. Loved it - we are coming back!
The staff were friendly and service was professional. Our mains were substantial and delicious. Desserts were outstanding. I enjoy perusing the changing wine by the glass list. Love this local!
Great Service, ambience very good wine list and staff are very professional & obliging, love the menu ????
The meals were very nice but served a little too fast. We are local and have been 6 or 7 times. Unlikely to return for some time as menu is too limited and doesn’t seem to change. More specials at a minimum would help.
Children's serving size of pasta was too small. My son was still hungry - we had to order another serve ($30 in total for 2 children's pastas. total for pasta in tomato sauce - no meat. Would have been more economical to have ordered an adult serve of pasta with meat. That is our only concern- the other children's meal purchased - chicken an fries was a worth the $15. Our meals were beautiful and the service was terrific.
Delicious gnocchi and beautiful views.
The fireplace makes your clothes stink. Otherwise fantastic views, good quality food, dessert was a bit flat in taste however the Tbone stake with jus was sensational. Nice beers on tap and really nice pinot. Will be back again.
The food was a little tasteless and not worth the cost
Beautiful views and friendly service.
Very lucky to have such a nice restaurant like this in Kangaroo Ground
This was a return visit for myself and friends, food never fails to deliver, stunning views through the large glass windows, service excellent, a delightful rural setting , a little bit of the Yarra Valley experience closer to town.
I love this restaurant! It's an absolute gem on the edge of the Yarra. Gorgeous setting, beautiful building and fabulous high quality food.
