All for your eating pleasure


MARTY Chichester joined the Oakdene team as the executive chef six months after the restaurant originally opened, and has been the force behind its success to this day.
With his loyal and dedicated team of chefs and front of house staff, Oakdene has become renowned for its consistent high standards of food and service over the years and has become a firm favourite among locals and tourists globally.
The team has gained accolades and awards both regionally and nationally at the highest level with recognition of their efforts from major Australian and international food critics.
Most recently, after 13 years of blood, sweat and tears, Marty has taken over the company reigns of both food operations at the Oakdene vineyard property and is determined to carry on the continued success and loyal following he has accumulated over the years.
Marty’s vision for the future of Oakdene (especially the restaurant) is that it will become a dining complex that will cater for all occasions and budgets.
Services will include high tea on the terrace, affordable contemporary dining in the restaurant, casual family dining at Mr Grubb and any style of function, wedding, conference or special occasion you can think of.
Marty has recently introduced a new structured a la carte menu in the restaurant which is designed to carry on the tradition of representing local and regional produce but at an affordable price.
The new menu will be more affordable, with prices that will range from $15-$18 for entrees and $32-$36 for main courses. The menu will still contain the ever-popular grill and steak section offering the best steaks on the Peninsula and some specials along the way.
The food will still include the high level of presentation and execution followed by the exceptional service that has been the forefront of the restaurant since the day it started.
Mr Grubb will continue on in the same manner, offering great early evening family dining options for the locals and a lunch menu that offers something for everyone.
For those who are looking for a great affordable award-winning dining experience – or looking for an excuse not to cook – Oakdene has something for everyone. It’s also open seven days a week for conferences and functions.
