A dining experience worth the trip to Barossa valley. We stopped here for lunch and it was the best meal we had during our trip to Adelaide. We had the pappardelle and Barossa fried chicken. You get the quality you pay for. Customer service was...also excellent. Will definitely return and eat here again during our next visit to the Barossa.More

Visited with family for lunch and with so many options, decided on the ‘Chef’s Selection’. We were treated to share plates of just about everything on the menu. Just when we thought there couldn’t possibly be anymore food to come out, we were given fresh...plates and cutlery and more wonderful dishes followed by dessert! The food was delightful visually and just so flavoursome. So happy we were able to get a table and thoroughly recommend.More

The food at the Farm Eatery was exceptionally good. Our group elected for the ‘Chef’s Selection’ which is kind of a feed-me option where the kitchen decides what dishes to send out. All of the food was fresh and tasty with some of our favourites...being the pate, chicken and pasta. Everyone left with full stomachs and smiles on their faces - hard to ask for much more than that!More

Lovely relaxed atmosphere with quiet efficient service. Greeted by Ellie who was very helpful explaining the menu and suggesting combinations- her advice proved wonderful. Her chef has the talent to highlight the main ingredient such as the Currong Mullaway and enhance it with the most...beautiful subtle flavours. We couldn’t fault any of the dishes from the home made ciabatta, salami plate with pickled Italian vegetables, pate, Coorong Mullaway & on it went. If you can fit it in or want a coffee stroll next door to Maggie’s Farm Shop relax over coffee and shop your heart out. Remember to book to be assured of a seat at Ellie’s Eatery.More

Had lunch here as part of The Durand Distillery Gin school experience. A wonderful lunch with generous serves. Simple, fresh ingredients in dishes that taste amazing!. Loved the not knowing what was coming out next, makes you try things you may not have chosen on...your own too. We will return again, loved it.More

We had an enjoyable meal here on a Thursday. The menu appears to change so you have a few choices including lots of the Barossa's finest. We had the Maggie's phesant sausage roll and the fried chicken (Korean style). Both were tasty. However I feel...the price of $40 for a sausage roll was over the top. I note the current menu has the famous Pheasant pie which is cheaper and seems better value. All of that said I will definetly return as its a great spot to start your tour of the Barossa. Coffee and cake is served in the cafe.More

Our expectations were high and we were not disappointed! Every dish from entree to desert were delicious. Great venue for vegetarians too. Wine was amazing, best prosecco ever. The staff was friendly.

Boy, it’s been many a year now since we visited the Maggie Beer farm shop long ago and when the whole ‘dining experience’ was to buy a little picnic ‘sack’ to take away. How things have changed with The Eatery. Quite a treat for a...relaxed lunch. The food did please, but sadly the noise was..... um ....noisy. The tables were adequately spaced though, but still too ‘busy’ to be able to have a good conversation. We are also not ‘sharers’ so although we did share with our family, we felt that style of dining was ‘pushed’ a little unnecessarily on us - we were told to get 7 odd dishes plus sides for our group. It was the right quantity (but we were not stuffed) but the dishes stand on their own as singular dishes too and I would have appreciated a starter and main of my own choice rather than opting in to share lots of different things and only get a few mouthfuls of each dish and not really taste enough of one thing. For instance, I could have devoured the whole paté (smaller dish) myself instead of a helping of just a measly one sixth! The other highlight was the mushroom pizza - that’s saying something for someone who is no fan of mushrooms. It packed the flavour of any meat pizza. Finally, the piccalilli accompaniment to the pheasant sausage roll (itself unfortunately lacking flavour) was incredible!!! Should be a farm shop jar available to purchase!More

We booked lunch here (via the Fork online) before leaving the Barossa for a short minibreak. The space is adjacent the Maggie Beer shop on the lake. We were lucky the weather had cleared up and took a leisurely stroll before lunch to peek at...the quince orchard and the pheasants. Greeted by friendly staff, and host Elli (Maggie's daughter). Pleased to see it was busy in spite of COVID19 restrictions. Tables were set out appropriately and sanitiser was readily available. We ordered off the menu and were blown away by the flavours and tastes. Kingfish and oyster ceviche with a zingy granita - got the saliva flowing! Pate served with fennel and amazing fried dough crisps - delicious Shared mains of the pork belly and the fried chicken almost defeated us with amount and richness, but we thoroughly enjoyed the amazing combinations of flavours and freshness. The slaw with the fried chicken was great! Finished off with a creme caramel, which was smooth and luxurious My husband enjoyed his wines, and given I was driving home I had a wild fennel cola which was amazing. Left feeling very full, but happy. Thank you for a perfect finish to our Barossa tour. Will be back next time!More
