Relatively new and a very positive addition to Tanunda with casual but creative and very tasty menu. Ideal if you just want something light to go with their amazing range of regional wine by the glass and no doubt befitting from the new venue for...the Artisans of Barossa tasting room out back! I had the sage and anchovy fritters followed by the fried chicken both were outstanding. The hardest part was deciding which of the wines to choose and don't forget to take a look at the specials board. Excellent fast and friendly service and lots of knowledge about the wine on offer. I agree a little with another review that the number of burgers offered was surprising so for me a couple less would be preferable.More

Vino Lokal had great reviews and was recommended - what a disappointment. Food presentation was average at best and flavor and quality best described as ordinary. Wine list extensive. Overall a great disappointment

I’ll confess that for a wine bar/ restaurant that is attached to a tasting room (the wonderful Artisans - love it!!), I was having second thoughts about staying with our lunch booking when I saw that the lion’s share of its menu was focussed on...burgers and fried chicken. Not exactly what we had in min mind. We didn’t feel it gelled very well. Wrong! Whilst we are still not really ‘convinced’ by the message such a menu sends (and I’m not sure I’d want it as a dinner menu that’s for sure), boy that fried chicken was 11/10 and then some..... And the cabbage and apple slaw was sent from heaven..... One member of our group had a burger and he had no complaints whatsoever so perhaps I’m getting upset for nothing!? The head person (whether or not he’s the owner?) had an enviable manner. Extremely professional and welcoming. He makes the place a great place to be. Finally, LOVE the glasses the beer is served in: The perfect size and shape..... just have to work out where they can be purchased!More

You don’t have to cook complex food to be highly rated. Simple food but well cooked using the freshest of ingredients can just be as exciting. We had the tomato salad, mussels with chorizo, chicken liver parfait and pork terrine and all dishes were just...wonderful. Fresh, beautifully balanced and all well made dishes. Then you have the ability to wine tasting to go with the food with highly knowledgeable staff to take you through the experience.More

We were so lucky to be able to dine at this beautiful restaurant, getting a seat at the bar. This turned out to be such a positive experience as we chatted to the staff and local diners. My husband and I shared all our meals,...which the chef must have heard about because he divided our pasta dish without us asking. The local couple had ice-cream on the delicious apple tart and we were offered the same. The staff were wonderful in selecting wines for my husband. Make sure you book so you don't miss out on this fabulous dining experience!More

Our first visit to Vino Lokal was an occasion to remember. The setting is charming, the staff are friendly and so knowledgable about the wines they have on offer and the chef's selection lunch for 11 of us was simple, yet fresh and appealing. The...dishes were presented beautifully and the tastes and textures were wonderful. It was a generous and delicious feast.More

We stumbled across Vino Lokal on our second night and so glad we did. They weren't doing dinner that night so we booked the next night. We love Apothecary in Adelaide and this place had a similar vibe. Booked ad received prime table by the...window. Great wines and the menu was inspired. Tiny number of tables. Never thought that I would order fried chicken in a fine dining restaurant but it was incredible and risky type of menu item that most chefs would never attempt! Only blip on an otherwise fantastic night was with the bill. The waitress saw me studying it closely and asked if there was a problem, there was as they had not charged us for our drinks. They were mortified but we felt better for pointing it out as would have felt guilty otherwise. Will defiitely return on next visit!More

Awesome, awesome, awesome. This has always been a favourite pop in place for me in the Barossa and it’s been a while between drinks due to the pandemic. What a transformation this little bar has made. 100% need to make a reservation because they are...so small, but food is phenomenal and the wine list is exceptional and inspired. Every place I visited in the Barossa recommended Vino Lokal and they don’t disappoint. Relaxed great service, jokes and smiles from all the staff, but if you want to see what food and wine really should be like, book a table and get into it.More
