Brilliant food and great atmosphere. Some of the best food and not overly expensive.

The menu hasn't changed much since our other visits. Food very good as always (except for some cartilage in the duck meat (we had a bone the time before). However, service was very slow - huge gap between some of our menu choices and little attention in between those waits to explain (mid way through the restaurant wasn't busy so not sure what the delay was).
One very noisy table that unfortunately made conversation difficult between us - not the restaurant's fault, but I guess it's down the the open layout.

Great food and wine list, overall Value is pretty good, we went on Valentines Day and it would seem they overbooked, service initially very slow, got better after a few requests.
Noise level was higher than expected for a cosy and romantic listing....

First time dinner here, thoroughly enjoyed the experience. One critism was that the food came put quite quickly, before the previous course had finished. Felt like we had to keep up with the chef. Otherwise brilliant.

Great food with a variety of flavours and textures delivered over 2 hours. French doors open allowing warm summer breezes to flow in - see in the beautiful Dandenongs.

Beautiful atmosphere. Food was all delicious. A great venue to kick back for an evening. Would probably suggest only a small group of up to max 4. Service is fantastic, everything is explained and you’re never kept waiting

Can’t wait til the next time we’re back at the Peacock Den! I’m still thinking about the food 2 days after being there... ridiculously tasty, ample portions, excellent range of flavours on the menu. Our wines were top notch too, the by-the-glass range is well thought out and all delicious. The food is so flipping good. Warm service that nailed the balance between leaving you be, and checking in. Even the bathrooms are outstanding. Decor too. Did I mention the food?

I went there with two work friends for a pre theatre dinner and drink on a Thursday evening. The food was delightful and the ambience was perfect. We had a lovely evening and my friends both very much enjoyed it too and asked if we can go there again! Thank you for the wonderful food, service and wine! Highly recommend The Peacock Den.

Exceptional service, the Sommelier had an intimate knowledge of every wine and spirit on offer. The food was served at appropriate intervals and if high quality. The customer service was excellent and the staff were very accommodating to our requests to move from a table to comfy chairs as our night progressed. It was a wonderful way to spend our anniversary and we will definitely be returning in the future

An amazing little gem in the suburbs. Impeccable service, great ambience and the food and wine were high quality. Our group of 6 chose the new ‘feed me’ option which covered a great range of the menu and allowed us to be served so we could focus on catching up.

Great atmosphere, great food and wine. Food is actually amazing and a few dishes to share between two is suitable as a dinner replacement. Definitely recommend! Kid-free place too, so no little screamers or smartphone entertainment going on!

food is always so great. The staff was friendly but not fully knowledgeable on all the food and had to head to the kitchen to check on some of our questions but that's ok. Will still head back as we always enjoy our time there.

We are locals and have eaten here before. The food is exceptional, no need to travel to the city for a great night out. Best restaurant and we are lucky to have it in The Basin
