We had a lovely dinner at Oakdene - the food was excellent and beautifully cooked with a varied and imaginative A La Carte menu, (there is also a degustation menu available), and of course we chose some lovely Oakdene wines. The restaurant itself is elegant and beautifully laid out and we enjoyed excellent service. As we were staying in the... More

The outstanding entree dish was the Okonomiyaki with alternate entrees being either Calamari Salad or a Heirloom... More

A lovely Summer's day at Oakdene. My companion and I had the salmon which was delicious. A glass of Savvi B (the Jessica) and a coffee finished off the meal. A most attentive waitress too. A very pleasant experience which I will repeat very soon.

We took our Aunty here for an afternoon of High Tea at Oakdene. She loved it, and so did we. It is situated in beautiful grounds - relaxing, fun, cool. The sculptural elements of the place are great and add a unique quality to the venue. The food was delicious and the staff were spot-on. I have to go back... More

We had decided to splash out on the degustation menu, with paired wines, but were disappointed that my pregnant daughter was not permitted to forego the alcohol, and they instead suggested that I drink hers as well as mine. So we ate a la carte instead. The food was good, with large portions, but we were frustrated by another "rule",... More

Thank you for reviewing our restaurant and your comments regarding our tasting menu - 4 courses including matched wines for $95 per person. As you discovered, there is an a la carte menu to choose from if you do not wish to dine on our special 'tasting menu'. More

Marty's is set in the beautiful Oakdene Winery at Wallington, near Ocean Grove. The food is beautiful presented and sensationally cooked. There is a wide variety to choose from in the menu, or you can choose a set menu with selected wines. Please note that for public holiday bookings there is a surcharge.

....and they couldn't have spoke more highly about their experience. They did the $95 / head tasting menu and said the food was absolutely first class and the environment in general stunning.
