A beautifully simple menu that speaks to the chef's passion and heritage
Always enjoy the service and great food at Oster. Fabulous restaurant in Richmond that never disappoints.
Great food and wine selection
Oster was very Nice, the Food was great, the wine was good and reasonable price ,
the service was awesome and would recommend it to our friends
Food was nice, very small portions for the price. Service was inconsistent for how busy the restaurant was
What a surprise. Did not know what to expect and in fact was worried about what seemed like a very limited menu. Had some starters including oysters with a lovely vinegarette, scallops beautifully cooked and some crusty fresh bread with marinated olives. Off to a good start! Then decided to treat myself to the Risotto Cacio e Pepe with a serve of freshly grated black truffle. The dish was simple but exploding with flavour. Perfect balance. My guest had a pasta with duck ragu which I tried and was equally flavoursome. Paired with a lovely Pinot Noir from Mornington (dedicated Australian Wine List) and finished with a Tiramisu which was perfectly balanced and not too sweet. Will definitely visit again.
Incredible food, great service. Can’t fault Oster, will definitely be back!
We went for my husband’s birthday as a small group. The service is was excellent and the food was wonderful. Really enjoyed it and looking forward to going back
Sublime experience at Oster.
The food was simply divine and the host was attentive and friendly.
I’ll definitely be back soon.
Service was quite slow. We sat down at 8pm and did not get our first course until 9pm and didn’t receive our final course until 10:45.
It was also a bit frustrating that the couple next to use arrived at 8:45 and was served food the same time as us or a few minutes ahead of us. Which was a little disappointing given how amazing the food was.
The scallop ceviche was extremely delicate and sophisticated. The grilled octopus is romesco sauce was robust and hearty, felts moorish and delightful. The shiitake ice cream was inspired. It tasted so unique but felt right - overall delicious and something I would come back for.
All in all, I think this is a promising restaurant and some of the best food I’ve tasted in my time. One to watch, I hope they tighten up the speed of their service as it is the only deterrent to me eating there regularly.
The staff were fantastic, food was fantastic, wine was amazing.
Only comment would be having an option of ordering an Old Fashioned or God Father.
Great dinner. Modern Italian
Our table was not ready at 8pm because previous diners were late arriving so still eating. We had to wait over 30mins for them to vacate. We were given a complimentary glass of Prosecco to ease our hunger pains.
Amazing food, fabulous service and great value, highly recommended. We’re already making plans to return with family and friends.
We went on a Tuesday night which was very quiet, but that ensured very personal service.
Also, Tuesday night is BYO wine night enabling us to bring a nice bottle from home. This was decantered and treated very professionally.
Great food, Great service. highly recommended
Lovely meal - service was personal and excellent.
I was blown away with the quality and service at Oster - i have been raving about it since I left! I highly recommend the 5 course with paired wines. Absolutely beautiful food with perfect wine pairings. I cant wait to go back!
Lovely experience, great ambience and delicious food. A must if you’re a Richmond resident or just looking for authentic cuisine and service.
Hi Mark, thank you so much for your review. We are glad you enjoyed both ambience and food. Looking forward to seeing you at Oster again soon. Osvaldo
Every dish on the degustation menu,and the palate cleansers, were delicious surprises. Each time we have been to Oster we ghave enjoyed the ever developing menu and the variety.
Very nice restaurant, relaxing atmosphere, top service, beautiful wines and great food!! I will come back!
Highly recommended .
Hi Katrin, thank you so much for your lovely review. Looking forward to seeing you at Oster again soon. Os
Absolutely beautiful dinner at Oster. We explained the dishes so perfectly and in such detail about all the local produce that was sourced to make each dish- it really made a difference to the experience!
Thank you to the amazing team at Oster for giving us special treatment on a special occasion! We’ll be back soon!!
Hi Vildan, thank you very much for your wonderful review. We are glad you and your guests had a good time and enjoyed our tasting menu. Looking forward to seeing you at Oster again soon. Regards Oster
Had bread, an entree, pasta and tiramisu for dessert! Great ambience and vibe for an intimate dinner with friends. Really enjoyed the risotto with mushrooms!
Hi JLoh. Thank you for your review. Mushrooms this season are fantastic! Looking forward to seeing you dining at Oster again soon. Regards. Oster.
Delicious and unique food, professional service, nice ambience. Appreciated the quiet and the gentle music. Overall very enjoyable experience.
Hi Juliette, we are glad you enjoyed your experience at Oster. Looking forward to hosting you again soon. Osvaldo
Ouster’s for a special night out. Small but exciting food; excellent Australian wines and fine service. Wonderful.
Hi Judith, thank you for your review. Looking forward to seeing you at Oster again soon!
After having been around Melbourne and trialling a few restaurants and their degustation menus, I wasn’t overly impressed by Oster. Although the food was delicious, the size and value for money wasn’t what was expected. For dessert it was a biscuit shaped as a banana, and the course after dessert with mushroom and beetroot was t considered a dessert to me. We all left feeling a little hungry still.
Hi Blanca, I am sorry to hear that you haven't found our tasting menu's size value for money. In true honesty, this is the first time we hear that someone left hungry after our degustation menu. We serve 5 individual courses (entrée - pasta - 2 mains and dessert) for $95. We also serve extras such as amuse bouche and a pre-dessert. Although we respect your opinion we often dine out too and we have to disagree as it is very hard to find 7 courses, using locally sourced produce at our price.
Food exceeded expectations, staff all very friendly and generous. Wine was delicious! Will definitely be back.
Hi Emma, thank you for your review. Looking forward to seeing you at Oster again soon!
Service was very good, grapefruit sorbet palette cleanser was stunning. We really liked the decor and a couple of the paired wines were delicious. The food was all pleasant to eat and well presented but of the degustation dishes, only the desert came anywhere near above average good food although the rhubarb was tough. Did not stand up to the 12 hat quality we were looking forward to. Over emphasis on veggie purees all with same texture just different flavour. Heidi tilsit foam delicious but over powered by parmesan. Pumpkin gnocchi worthy of a hearty family meal rather than fine dining. Duck meat tender but skin and fat not nicely caramelised. Wouldn't discourage someone from going- but we agree we couldn't recommend. Wish we could have raved about the meal but we would not be telling the truth.
Dear Revi, I am really sorry to hear that the food wasn't up to your expectations. We will take your feedback on board and we will work and strive to keep creating and astonish our guests. We invite you to come back to visit us as the tasting menu changes on regular basis. Regards Os
My partner and I visited oster for our anniversary. We went for the tasting menu and we were not disappointed!! The food was amazing and the service was outstanding. They made every effort to ensure we had a special night. We can't wait to visit again.

Absolute gem. We could only book counter seating due to a late reservation which was lovely but shortly after we arrived we were asked if we would prefer a table which was also lovely. Ambience perfect, food delicious, service impeccable, wines on point. We will definitely be back. Thanks for having us. Michelle
