    Enjoyed a wonderful lunch. Loved the menu choices. It is wonderful to receive a menu where you don’t know what to choose !!! The sirloin with peppercorn sauce is one of the best I have ever eaten. Panko oysters superb. Dessert taster plate a triumph. Can’t wait to return.

    Amazing place set tucked away in Wallington. Wine was fantastic and food perfect. Highly recommended by many. It’s nice and cosy too so has this beautiful quaint feel.

    Our daughters and grandsons gave us a voucher for Christmas so we decided to use it for a special dinner for our wedding anniversary. The location and food were excellent and the staff absolutely awesome. Definitely a place to go for that special meal - but then again a great place at anytime. Loved it.

    We enjoyed a lovely meal for my daughter's birthday. The staff were attentive and the meals delicious. We did a wine tasting prior to lunch and bought quite a few wines. It's a pity that there is quite a markup on the wine list as compared to the cellar door. Apart from this I couldn't fault Marty@Oakdene.

    We love this restaurant. We always do a wine tasting first then we go to the restaurant. The food is always great and so is the wine. The staff are very friendly and welcoming,

    Our mains were amazing, the wine wasn't as good as last time but still nice. Staff great. Pricey, but worth it. We will be back

    Marty @ Oakdene

    Thank you for taking the time to review us at Marty's. We are so glad you enjoyed the food & service on the night - the wines can change vintage to vintage and sometimes aren't quite as you remember them. Please feel free to ask a team member when you dine with us if you are not 100% and we will be more than happy to exchange for another wine or beverage. See you next time.

    I’ve been coming to Oakdene for over 10 years and I can honestly say I have never had anything but top end food and wine. As for the service it’s like Dinning with family and friends.

    Marty @ Oakdene

    Hi Brent, thank you once again for the stella review, we like to think of Ange & yourself as part of the Oakdene family as we do all our guests. It's lovely to read your kind words and as always a pleasure to have you dine with us. Until next time!

About the restaurant

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
