As a regular at Oakdene, I am never disappointed. The menu is constantly changing so there is always something new to enjoy. Sarah & her crew provided outstanding service as usual.
Thank you for your lovely review Lyn, it is always a pleasure to have you all join us in the restaurant and a great catch up before the silly season. See you in the New Year if not before!

Special Event - High Tea. Have been here many times over the past decade. From more than 6,000 restaurant visits over the past 20 years throughout the world, Marty @ Oakdene remains number one for consistent excellence.
Lovely to see you again for High Tea sitting, and hope it was just as good as your morning teas you put on at work! Always a pleasure having you join us for Lunch, Dinner or High Tea. See you next time.

I have dined at Marty @ Oakdene many times. Having traveled extensively for work in the past 25 years, I have dined out approximately 300 times per year, so am well able to judge an establishment on its menu, standard of service and general atmosphere. Without question, Marty @ Oakdne can only be described as "consistent excellence." I would thoroughly urge anyone reading this review to book a table and enjoy the experience for yourself.
Thank you for your wonderful review. We are always happy to welcome you & Kaylene in the restaurant. We love what we do and love that are guests do too!! Looking forward to seeing you next time!

About Marty @ Oakdene

The Wizard of Oakdene Oakdene Vinyards in Wallington is unlike anything else in Melbourne. A cellar door, restaurant, café and accommodation, a day at Oakdene is something to remember. The café, Mr Grubb, is decked out with an eclectic mix of art and installations, and serves up casual meals, snacks, and coffee, including weekend breakfasts. Meanwhile, the Oakdene Vineyards Restaurant is a fine dining affair, with a modern fusion of Australian and European cuisines, all created with fresh local and regional produce. Executive chef and manager Marty Chichester hails from Wales and brings a distinct Welsh flavour to some of his signature dishes. The Cellar Door, otherwise known as the ‘Upside-Down House’ is open every day for wine tastings, tours and sales. It’s definitely worth checking out just to see its kooky architecture, designed by owner Elizabeth Hooley. It’s a real life Wizard of Oz house, just like it’s been blown over! Click your ruby slippers and head straight for Oakdene Vineyards. Best dish: House-cured pork belly
