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

One of the best hidden gems in Melbourne. World class food and wine, great atmosphere, excellent service. All this while having a fresh and exciting new take on a bar which is ahead of its time.

What a gorgeous find! Amazing wine list and the menu was amazing. Fortunately they had a feed me option 5 dishes for $55 p.p so we didn't have to choose, we just got a wonderful surprise as each dish was presented. The open fire and the cosy atmosphere made for a perfect winters night, and the service was unobtrusive and highly efficient.

My staff and I had yet again another fantastic evening at The Peacock Den. We just love the space, set up and how it allows us to relax and enjoy a team night out. The food was amazing and catered for our vegetarian and myself as a coeliac.

Who would have thought a little gem like this would be in The Basin. The food was simply fantastic, (highly recommend prawns and arancini balls. Wine list is also very good however a little $$. My wife and I ate way too much. Don't forget to leave some room for dessert and the coffee was also very good. Well worth the effort to drive up there. We will 100% be back

We've been to TPD a couple of timed before and loved it and this visit was no exception, although we were disappointed there was no mulled wine this winter. 'The Basin' cocktail however more than made up for this. Some of our favourites are the Lamb Ribs, Southern Fried Chicken, Cherry Dougnuts and Chocolate Cake with Lavender Ice-cream. The staff are great, ambience is great (playlist on Saturday was awesome), the only minor detail is the couches right in front of the fireplace get way too hot (might be worth turning it right down low or off if people have to sit in front of it). All in all amazing as usual!

Third time visiting and the food was amazing as always. Very eclectic decor and most of the seating is in arm chairs or couches so it may not be for everyone but it’s perfect for a quiet night with a couple of friends. Highly recommend the lamb and garlic prawns but everything we had was perfectly cooked.

Lovely cosy atmosphere. Friendly service. Great tapas style menu. Loved the cocktails and recouping try the Basin. Even though it’s small I did not feel that I was sitting shoulder to shoulder with others or that I couldn’t have a private conversation. Nice relaxing place.

Maybe for a drink perfect but a meal I found it expensive.
service was lovely but very slow, felt for the chef being on his own, far to busy for only 1 chef

Fantastic food!
Great service!
Wonderful decor!
Generous cocktails!
But the feed menu at $55 per person left us both unsatisfied. Factor in a few cocktails each and we were almost $220 poorer. But we loved it and will be back. Definitely worth a visit for a special occasion. I recommend going after tea and indulging in a few cocktails and a share plate or two. The feed me menu was too expensive for what you received. Although it was very well cooked. Well seasoned and extremely well presented. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed.

The rave reviews that i had heard before hand were rightly earned. The Peacock Den has a flawless menu, modest yet unique cocktail list and a bit of mystery that ensures you'll be wanting to share this experience with others who are uninitiated.

Fantastic spot for a 'grown up' night out - something sadly lacking in the outer east.

Great food, superbly curated wine list with super knowledage sommelier. We'll definately be back :)
