Great food is about family and friends.
The team at The Independent have created a menu inspired by the seasons, the best local ingredients and Argentinean heritage. Argentinian head chef- Mauro Callegari, grew up in Argentina and learned the secrets of cooking at his mum’s restaurant. Callegari developed a passion for food that’s influenced by Spain and Italy and combines Creole and North African flavours.
The Independent is a casual restaurant where you can savour contemporary Argentinean food in the beautiful setting of the Dandenongs and Yarra Valley.
We hope you enjoy the experience.
Wednesday and Thursday from 5.30pm and Friday - Sunday 12pm - Late.

Please note the restaurant will be CLOSED for a Winter break.
