The Independent Gembrook Overview

A lively hot spot in Melbourne’s outer south-east dining scene, The Independent Gembrook is well loved by loyal locals. Housed in a fully restored historical building on Main Street, the spacious eatery boasts high ceilings and a fully open plan kitchen with a relaxed atmosphere. Enjoy a range of tap beers and wines from boutique wineries before indulging in an exciting menu which draws influence from Argentinean Chef Mauro Callegari’s background. Start with the highly addictive Provoleta - terracotta baked provolone cheese and chimmichurri before starting on the Asado - roasted grass fed beef short ribs, chimmichurri and potato, Lyonnaise style. Be sure to save room for dessert with options like the Tarta De Limon - Mauro's zesty lemon tart with lemon curd, biscuit crumb and meringue.

Best Known For

Cordero: slow roasted Gippsland lamb shoulder, carrots, chilli, coriander and peanuts.
