Unique and delicious food! The ambience and staff and overall design of the Peacock Den (elaborate drinks menu, small but not under-thought food menu, couch, bar and table seating) celebrates the food and drink and creates an intimate moment for patrons. No other place is doing anything like this in the area. Will definitely be back!

It was quite a busy night with 4 different birthday celebrations being held there during the time we dined and unfortunately we were seated next to one of those celebrations with one particularly loud and inconsiderate customer seated there who felt the need for his sweary dialogue to be heard by all. He carried on for the entire time we were there, with our only reprieve coming during brief moments when food was delivered to the table as he stopped to take a bite.
This customer aside, the staff were really lovely and the food was so beautiful, as usual! Love coming to the Peacock Den!

Love this place. We had the five course menu with saganaki, barramundi, beef cheek, brocollini and the chocolate marquise. Everything was perfect and the recommended wines were great.

A downlight at the front of the room right above us was shorting/flashing all night which was annoying and needs to be replaced asap. Only negative though, the night was fantastic, and food awesome!!

Great venue, majority of food was subliminal, the drinks menu was wide raging and delicious. Unfortunately only one waitress working. Although not a busy night, had to wait a bit for drinks service. Definitely a bit on the expensive side. But have been many times and will certainly go again.

Our culinary experience at Peacock Den was a very pleasant one. The menu was very novel with structured pricing system and the food was amazing. Excellent customer service was a Icing on the cake. Nice place to entertain friends and family.

Overall a pleasant experience. Forced menu options of 3-4-5 dishes locking you in for over $50 per head. Not including drinks etc Cocktails were nice but all cost over $22 which ads up pretty quick.

So, for the Eastern suburbs it's a fairly inner city experience, but be prepared to spend the money attached to city prices.

Hello, I've been to the Peacock several times over the past few years. The past two times (within a six week period) I've been very disappointed. The service is a little odd...the meals come at strange times, there is never water provided, the communication is unusual, and the food does note taste as fresh and wonderful as it once did. I am so sad that this is my experience. My friend felt the same. Unfortunately, I will not return given this has now happened twice.

Great venue, delicious food, team are friendly. Just very overpriced with this new set menu making you pay $90 at a minimum for two people, for just three plates
Won’t be going back until hopefully they change their menu back to itemised because we just can’t afford it and I think others can’t either because it was also very quiet unfortunately
