There are not many places that you can rate a 10 out of 10. A upside down house for wine tasting, artistic gardens are awesome you just want to stay all day or just keep coming back to experience each garden. Then you walk inside to the restaurant well this may take you about 20 mins to get the restaurant... More

We have been to this restaurant several times and I think it continues to get better! We were at Marty's for lunch. One can not help but feel pleasantly welcome on arrival. We could only manage 2 courses, the food is just a full flavour experience in generous proportions . The size of the serve is quite unusual in a... More

This is a really interesting place. We visited for lunch on Easter Sunday. We had a set lunch with a choice of three entrees, mains and desserts. All of the meals were beautifully presented and very tasty. As it turned into a sunny afternoon we asked if we could have our dessert and coffee outside. This was no trouble at... More

Very friendly staff and helpful. We had a lovely steak cooked to perfection. My only complaint was charging for sparkling water and not leaving it on the table. We had a bottle of wine which was left at the bar so every time we wanted to refill our glass we had to request it. It would have been easier to... More

The restaurant walls are bright and everywhere you look there are quirky little collectables and "junk" (in an artistic sense) everywhere, so you eyes are constantly kept busy as you wait for the food. On the food - food is very tasty and the menu caters for all tastes. Portions are a good size so we thought the menu is... 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.
