Lovely relaxed setting. Good service and as usual wonderful food. An interesting tapas and share plate menu with great flavours and so fresh. Can’t fault the Peacock Den. If you haven’t tried it then you really should.

Fabulous flavour combinations here; the scallops and prawns were unforgettable. Ambience was elegant, from the music to the French cutlery and even the bathroom products. Wait staff were helpful and discreet, though service was a bit slower than usual; maybe the kitchen wasn't prepared for such a busy Thursday eve?

A very pleasant, relaxed experience. There were four of us, we all enjoyed the food, the garlic prawns were a favourite as was the slider and the pork bun. Will certainly be back.

Beautiful venue, with fantastic food, great service. Hidden little gem at the foot of the Dandenongs. Tapas style food, is paired with a varied and vast well cure collection of wines and spirits. Something that you'd expected in city or luxury venue, this place will definitely make an impression. Quality surpasses quantity. So if you're after a massive pub style feed, this place is not for you. There is careful thought put into the menu and you can see the chef has definitely created something special. Hope to come back soon for a 'kid free', 'fancy' grown up meal with friends or my other half.

What a fantastic local gem. The food and wine were fantastic and the personal service spot on. We really enjoyed allowing the sommelier to choose our wine, taking us on a journey of discovery before finally revealing what it was with the last glass. The cheeses were sublime and generously portioned. We'll definitely be back for more.

Air conditioning was a little cold as the night went on and noisy too. Some cobwebs around.
Booking was confused on my arrival- wasn’t a concern, just saying.
Delicious food but rather pricey.
Not really a drinker and when I asked for a mock tail instead of a wine like my friend, the waiter remarked ‘at least someone’s here to have a good time’ after taking her order. Just didn’t think it was a positive way to look after your guests.
Appreciated being able to split the bill. Would definitely return. Sliders- amazing!

Fantastic space, great service and high quality ingredients. A unique find in The Basin.

Only catch, they don't split bills, and no ATM nearby so be sure to bring cash with you if drinking in a group.

Found this little gem on instagram. Wow my husband and i were VERY impressed. Blown away by the food!! Tasty delicious morsels that we cannot stop talking about. Loved the ambience and the decor through to the rolled up individual hand towels in the bathrooms. And the cocktails were amazing. Back for more ASAP!

We had a lovely night with friends here. The food was great, however portions were a bit small. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. Wine and beer selection was good. We will visit again, it's a lovely addition to the local area.

Aside from the amazing food we had, the service was incredible:
Apologies but I didn’t catch the name of the person who served us but he was manning the front of house and bar solo and did a great job.
He was passionate about food and wine and made our already lovely experience even better. Thanks

Th eggy was flat out with a new staff member in which he pointed out. This is okay and understandable if things are slower.
Our main meals didn’t come out at once, one dish at a time and out side after we finished dinner. Not sure what was going on in kitchen.
Value not great

Enjoy going to the Peacock Den. Only negative is you have to buy wine by the glass which makes the overall visit quite expensive.

Met friends here for a Sunday afternoon catch up drinks and nibbles. We weren’t sure what we wanted so the staff just brought out a selection of their tapas style food for us. It was all delicious! Lovely cocktails and great to have some chilled live music to listen to. Will be back!
