We took our Aunty here for an afternoon of High Tea at Oakdene. She loved it, and so did we. It is situated in beautiful grounds - relaxing, fun, cool. The sculptural elements of the place are great and add a unique quality to the venue. The food was delicious and the staff were spot-on. I have to go back... More

We had decided to splash out on the degustation menu, with paired wines, but were disappointed that my pregnant daughter was not permitted to forego the alcohol, and they instead suggested that I drink hers as well as mine. So we ate a la carte instead. The food was good, with large portions, but we were frustrated by another "rule",... More

Thank you for reviewing our restaurant and your comments regarding our tasting menu - 4 courses including matched wines for $95 per person. As you discovered, there is an a la carte menu to choose from if you do not wish to dine on our special 'tasting menu'. More

Marty's is set in the beautiful Oakdene Winery at Wallington, near Ocean Grove. The food is beautiful presented and sensationally cooked. There is a wide variety to choose from in the menu, or you can choose a set menu with selected wines. Please note that for public holiday bookings there is a surcharge.

....and they couldn't have spoke more highly about their experience. They did the $95 / head tasting menu and said the food was absolutely first class and the environment in general stunning.

We dined as a group of 7, enjoying main and dessert. All the dishes were very well executed. The Oakdene sparkling was delicious

Dinner for two at a beautiful location, relaxed dinning with second to none service. A dinning experience that has to be one of the best on the Bellarine.

Chose this establishment based on other reviews and was not disappointed. We took a 6.30pm booking but this did not mean we had to be out by 8pm for the second sitting. Meet by friendly staff and shown to a lovely table in the terrace which meant we were looking at some greenery outside. Ordered a couple of glasses of... More

We dined here for our wedding anniversary in January. The food was to die for! I can highly recommend the calamari entree and fish special of barramundi, when they have it. My husband enjoyed the duck confit. Oak dense wines are excellent. Making the night special was our waitress, Fiona, who was knowledgable about the food and gave great advice... More
