The service is impeccable. The staff have great knowledge of the menu and are always nearby to fill your glass. The food is by far the best in the region! I love the flavours and local produce. My boyfriend and I love coming here for special occasions.

The three course deal was great.

Dined at Marty @ Oakdene for our 26th wedding anniversary on Wednesday 14 March. The food, wine and service was exemplary. I recommend this restaurant as a beautiful venue to celebrate a special occasion or if you love fine dining.

A really nice restaurant and when compared to other places in the Ocean Grove area, this is the best by a mile. We both had the lamb which was simply delicious and while the service was a little slow (to be picky) we sat back and enjoyed the whole night. Staff were friendly, atmosphere great and food of a high quality. I would strongly recommend here rather than spending slightly less in Ocean Grove centre for an experience and meal that is second rate.

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
