The Peacock Den
The concept behind The Peacock Den is simply to offer a more unique wine and dining experience in the outer east. Brought to life from a vision and passion for the Hospitality industry, we have created this stunning establishment.
With a strong focus on fine wines, the mission at The Peacock Den is simply to share excellent and expertly selected wines matched with simple yet delicious food in a relaxed sharing environment.
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....
Lovely spot for a dinner for 2 or a catch up with friends. Excellent wine selection and tantalising food.
Will definitely be back
The food was delicious and the service very friendly and prompt
The Peacock Den has such a beautiful vibe about it. Its welcoming, relaxing and the food and service is always amazing. Have been a few times and have never been disappointed.
Excellent choice of food, wich works really well to share. Atmosphere is relaxed. Staff are friendly and attentive.
Such an amazing place, food is fabulous and the service is incredible.
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.
Awesome as always just need to turn the lights down earlier as was too bright at 8:30pm but glad one girls noticed later on ! Awesome as always though 😊
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
Very happy to recommend this great local spot in The Basin for a drink and nibble. Lovely atmosphere and service and scrumptious food. Great wine list.
Excellent service, our meals were really tasty & well presented.The informal seating arrangements was a nice change
All class, outstanding food and service. It will be a regular for us

love love love it. ..been meaning to go for ages and glad we have finally gotten there
Love this place such a local little gem! The cocktails are amazing and the staff are wonderful!
Food was nice but the service and wait times for our dishes was terrible. Chicken & prawns over priced. Nice place & feel.
Amazing full flavour. We loved everything. The carrots, garlic prawns, chicken, everything was delicious and balanced. Service was friendly and attentive. Vibes high. We had a gorgeous date night. Would absolutely recommend.
We spent a lovely evening with work colleagues eating delicious food and enjoying good wine. I love tapas so would highly recommend.
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.
I love everything about the peacock den. It is just the most relaxing way to enjoy a meal. Weathe as a couple or with a group.
What an outstanding place to have a drink and unwind or get a bite to eat and catch up with friends and family
Great relaxed night out with a group of friends. Lovely little venue. We were made welcome from start to finish. Will be back.
The service at The Peacock Den is always amazing and so to the wines, cocktails and food. Such a great little venue.
Always enjoy our time at The Peacock Den - wine is as always fantastic and the food always great
We love the Peacock Den for our mum’s group gatherings. The atmosphere is lovely and quiet - the no kids thing is a huge draw card!
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
The ambience, service and food is outstanding. We are regulars and would recommend anyone who enjoys quality food and wine. Service outstanding
Great way to have a date night
Great wine selection and the perfect place to sit and relax
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.
One of my best dining experiences. Loved everything about it. The ambience, service, cocktails and food!! Highly recommend.
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!
Great ambience and enjoyed celebrating our one year anniversary.
Love this place, food is always amazing, and the blushing peacock cocktail is just divine
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
