Had the four course set menu with matching wines on a Saturday lunch last month, thoroughly enjoyed it. Food was excellent, portions v good, wine matches good and pours where appropriate. Service was also very good. Overall a slick operation, well done. Highly recommend Marty’s.

If you are anywhere near here... book it now!!! Everything we ate was SEN-SATIONAL... especially the goats cheese tartlet. Location is a nice mix of classic and pretty. Service was a nice mix of attentive but not intrusive. Totally worth it, big thumbs up.

We loved the environment, the vineyard setting, the ambience of the restaurant, the truly hospitable staff and the delicious food with matched Oakdene wines.

Excellent location, restaurant has multiple separate rooms to suit your occasion. Service was superb, we has a room for the 6 of us. All the dishes were of wonderful quality in presentation, taste and just the size. I would go again without a second thought.
