Great surroundings! Very quirky and arty... But - the food lives up to the atmosphere! Outdoor casual garden serving platters/fish and chips Inside restaurant a more refined experience After eating take a walk around the grounds Also wine tasting available in the upside down house! I feel like I'm in Kansas! haha

Thank you for your review. Our garden cafe stops serving lunch at 3pm, although if the restaurant is still operating indoors, we do let people continue to sit and enjoy the area. We do try to discourage guests from walking through the restaurant so we do not disturb our existing diners. We would be happy to take your guests through... More

Finally got out to Oakdene for my birthday and what a lovely dinner. Whilst we enjoyed every meal, entree was the best. All wines are from their Vineyard. Attentive service. Lovely setting. PS try the dessert platter
