We want to grow a strong local economy by redefining what it means to be sustainable, challenging ourselves to adapt to available local produce, while promoting the benefits of operating a food business that connects our community

South Gippsland resident & ophthalmologist, Dr. David Ehrlich, opened his unique bar & restaurant, The Grove Gippsland, on Saturday 2nd February 2019.

Set on a 60-acre farm in Krowera, Victoria, the restaurant is nestled within an olive & truffle grove & offers extensive views across Bass Hinterland.

Just an hour and a half from Melbourne’s CBD, The Grove offers relaxed dining in a stylish and tranquil setting. The area boasts fabulous wineries, distilleries, antiques & collectibles, boutique accommodation options alongside purveyors of fresh organic produce.

As well as producing its own olive oil, The Grove grows organic heirloom vegetables that feature within seasonal dishes.

The Grove’s menu reflects fresh, local, ethically sourced ingredients, cooked with love & presented in a simple, authentic manner. Executive Chef, Antony Ellis, has returned to South Gippsland from Melbourne, with a mission to place The Grove  front and centre as an ethical, sustainable regional restaurant.

“We gather and produce the finest ingredients South Gippsland has to offer. We then share it with our guests in the form of a set menu from which customers can sample a little of everything wonderful our region has to offer.  If our guests prefer we have a tapas style menu which allows people to pick some dishes ranging from small bites through to a substantial meal to share with loved ones.”
