Without doubt the best restaurant in McLaren Vale. Definitely worth Michelin Stars. And it’s affordable. Will be back again and again. Staff are really good too.

Creative, delicious food matched with great service and wines! A magnificent way to spend a lunch in the Vale.

Had a lovely romantic lunch here to celebrate my partner's 40th. I couldn't fault a thing. The food was divine, service impeccable but not pretentious. Interesting combinations that paired delightfully with the museum wine collection.

This restaurant is amazing with its lovely building, stunning views, outstanding service and above all the exquisite food -it was just so superb. The degustation was 7 courses and every dish looked beautiful and tasted extraordinary, with such fantastic blends of flavours and textures. Great...wine too with an excellent recommendation made by the waiter. It made for a very special night out and we will definitely be back. Highly recommended.More

Fancy food. Great location and outlook. Ploughman lunch was a clever pairing or quality foods. Not really enough to fill us up for lunch though. Wines (Rose' and Chardonnay) were much to our liking and service was spot on until the bill, when a computer...problems had us waiting quite some time.More

Booked in for the ploughman’s lunch with interstate visitors. Arrival process was disappointing. Asked to mill around rather than a more customer friendly process. We would have been more than happy to buy a glass of wine during this time. Thereafter, once we were seated,...the service was good. Food was of high quality but there was simply not enough for four adults.More

What a memorable experience! Each course was paired beautifully with each of the Maxwell wines, the cured trout was an absolute winner along with the venison carpaccio. The added holiday desserts were also a lovely touch! Service was excellent, beautifully decorated restaurant overlooking the vines....Maxwell- dined indeed!More

Hi there, thanks for your enquiry. Please allow for about 1.5 hours for the three course option. All of our wines are available by the bottle and we also have a decent selection of museum released wines from our cellar... More
