Gaku Roberta Grill 

Gaku Roberta Grill 

Owner chef Haru and Shimon are making dishes with fancy ingredients and a mixture of Japanese and French cuisine techniques. 

Gaku Roberta is a small and very elegant Japanese restaurant, beautiful traditional Japanese interior.  Chefs work away behind the counter in the middle. 

Gaku Roberta is open for lunch and dinner.  Lunch is limited to a range of Ramen, (only 40 or so serves are available each day and usually sold out).  The range usually includes rich umami Chicken Tonkotsu; Duck Yuzu and Asari Soy but subject to change on the day. 

The dinner menu offers an extensive range of gorgeous grilled meat and vegetable offerings.  Each dish is beautifully presented, and each has been terrific (in our opinion).  Gaku Roberta also offers extensive sushi, sashimi and rolls.  

A small spot with limited seating, bookings essential.

Sonora’s menu has options ranging from swordfish to lamb shoulder, all the way to vegan options.

Toorak and its surrounding suburbs have always been one of the most sought-after regions of Melbourne.

The perfect home to create both an idyllic setting for relaxed living as well as lavish entertaining, the single-storey property set over a generous 1,811sqm block also presents its future owners with the opportunity to further extend, or even rebuild to factor in potential city views from a second storey (STCA).

Elegantly designed living spaces include features such as French oak floors, a sky-lit reception hall (leading to a spacious sitting room), a formal dining room, a peaceful library or study space, an expansive gourmet kitchen with Calacatta marble benches and solid oak joinery. The main light-filled bedroom suite with original fireplace overlooks the garden, while beautiful floor-to-ceiling joinery in the dressing room behind it provides extensive storage for clothes, shoes and accessories. At the rear of the house, an equally spacious bedroom has its own ensuite, with a third bathroom in the other wing of the house next to the home gym.

In the north-facing garden, you might notice a familiar aesthetic; the “country-style” garden has been designed by sought-after, award-winning Australian landscape designer Paul Bangay. Perfect for entertaining, the mature, seasonal garden includes a mosaic-tiled pool and outdoor living room with reclaimed stone paving from Ireland, as well as a domed fountain, aqueduct-style water feature and rose covered arbour.

For those that have, perhaps, been searching for the right home opportunity, 8 Robertson Street, Toorak could signal the end of your search. Located in one of Toorak’s most picturesque and sought after streets, it’s a country estate in the heart of the city.
