    Upon arrival the atmosphere was welcoming and the staff were polite, as we were early we were offed a seat at the bar to have a pre dinner drink but found the bar stools difficult to sit and one with a broken foot rest that meant it could not be safely used , so opted for some short stool seats beside the bar.The lighting made it very difficult to read the wine list which was hard to hold whilst trying to turn over and endless wine list that was very expensive to the tune of bottle prices marked up 120% . Once our table was ready we were offered a choice of sparkling or still water and the menu ,the way the menu was laid out made it confusing to understand particularly when with other people. The lack of understanding about Gluten intolerance was astounding causing one of the guests to have a major gluten attack and be incapacitated for the following two days. The food was pleasant but nothing outstanding, i dont usually post reviews however if the establishment learns from this review i hope things will improve for them because Peacock Den has such potential

    An unexpected gem sitting within outer suburbia. After driving past many times and thinking we should try it out, we were surprised to find a venue, menu and service a cut above your usual eatery. A little bit more expensive than your average restaurant you'd generally find in The Basin, but well worth it for a special treat/date night/celebration.

    Absolutely love this place. And the fact that it's tucked out in the burbs(12 min from home) is unbelievable. The food is so delicious and ample serves, to the point we always think we can do 5 and only every get through 4.

    The food was very bland in flavour, overpriced for what we got. Most dishes are easily made at home. Service was friendly but unprofessional in mini beach shorts dressed. We were shocked to be charged for the water that was offered on arrival. Usually water is complimentary not $13, especially without pre warning

    Great place for a romantic date or a catch up with friends. Food was delicious, cooked to perfection & cocktails were original but the combinations worked well. Apple Crumble cocktail was amazing. Will definitely be coming back - especially for the Apple Crumble Cocktail!
