About The Independent Gembrook

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 with chilli, oregano and honey, before starting on the Asado - roasted Tasmanian grass fed beef short ribs with chimmichurri and potato, Lyonnaise style. Be sure to save room for dessert with options like vanilla ice cream with peanuts and a shot of scotch.
