Our own private dining room. Our own special waitress. Delicious food. Chestnut and leek soup to die for. Prawn and lobster entree was wow! Turkey and other choices for main were splendid. Christmas puds were just the right size but exquisite at the end. Loved all the silly bits, Bon Bons, Candles on one dessert. Oakdene wine was lovely. Service... More

Setting is really beautiful in the birch grove, or you can choose to sit inside. If you sit outside, although there are plenty of table and it is busy you don't feel you are part of the conversation of the table next to you! The service is always with a smile and the food is delicious. Plenty of variety for... More
Thank you for your review of our cafe Mr Grubb. We think the setting amongst the birch trees is beautiful too. Glad you like the pricing, food, service and the grassy play area for the kids. More
We used to visit Oakdene 4-5 times a year since the closure of Petavel restaurant and we were mostly happy with the experience. Last time it was maybe 2 years ago (not counting the visit to the new Mc Grubb cafe few months ago, which (the cafe) proved to be so bad, that even the idea of reviewing it seemed... More

I had an entre platter which was good but i felt too much meat based items. I would prefer more cheese and dips. I loved my main meal which was lamb cooked to perfection and with sauces around it. I couldn't fit in desert but the wine was lovely. Great service very attentive staff. Almost as good as the Banks... More

We decided to visit The Bellarine. I was searching for accommodation on the web and finally settled on Oakdene for accommodation and dinner. What a lovely find! The web doesn't do it justice! The quirky art work all through the building which houses the restaurant and the 3 rooms of accommodation are just so much fun - so bright and... More

We visited Oakdene restaurant for dinner and the whole evening was faultless. Apart from outstanding food and wine (try the Shiraz!) we found the service unpretentious, attentive and friendly. Thanks...we will be back.

Visited Oakdene again and was not at all disappointed. Excellent food, excellent service and very attractive surroundings. Some dishes are on the expensive side, but as the adage goes - you usually get what you pay for.

Went for a nice lunch based on rave reviews and were sadly let down. When we arrived there was a large group outside the restaurant in the garden having drinks. The table we were given looked out onto the group who were openly gay. I don't have a problem with that yet don't expect my elderly mother to be exposed... More
Thank you for your review of our restaurant. We appreciate comments, both good and bad, and are sorry you didn't enjoy your time at Oakdene. Allow me to address the issues. Firstly, the 'raw' prawns. The prawns are cooked in a sous vide water bath, which ensures they are cooked at a precise water temperature. The cooked prawns will turn... More
