I decided to book at Appellation for my partner's birthday when we spent five days at the Barossa recently as a special treat. We begun with a pre-dinner drink on the terrace and it was very peaceful with the sun setting in the distance. I really enjoyed this atmosphere and the anticipation of a wonderful evening ahead. We didn't opt... More

My husband and I dined here recently to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food was exquisite and service was excellent, we had a beautiful evening. Highly recommend the degustation menu with paired wines. We will absolutely return again if ever we are back in the Barossa - just supurb.

We have stayed here before but do not remember being forced to eat breakfast in our room. I don't know whose idea it was but it would deter us from staying here again, as the food and coffee was just below par for a venue of this stature. Also, I don't always know in advance what I want to eat... More

We went on tuesday night and had a three coursed meal which were the chefs choice. meals were beautifully presented with some unusual tastes. staff very friendly. It could of had a larger selection of wines by the glass but still definitely worth going.

On Tuesdays the menu is a 3 course meal made from the best prudce of the day, The dinner doesn't get to choose the meal. My husband & I were given different dishes for each course. We chose to have the somelier wine match. It was a great meal and great new experience in dinning. Very friendly staff.

We were asked to arrive up to one and half hours before our reservation time presumably to consume enough overpriced, poorly constructed cocktails to make the $135 per person degustation menu more palatable. After sitting on awkward stools, sipping on a ruthless vodka martinis and contemplating an olive that looked more like a wrinkled caper that an olive, we were... More

We recently ate here for my birthday, it was a surprise, and I couldn't have been happier. On arrival the door was opened and being a little early we were given a choice of a drink on the verandah or going straight to our table which was already ready for us. We decided to take a drink outside as the... More

Beautiful restaurant, knowledgable helpful friendly staff and Sommelier. We had the Degustation Menu with matching wines. The nice part about this menu compared to other Degustation Menu's was for each course there was a choice and as there were 4 of us we almost all had a different item from the menu and were able to sample each others food...

Excellent restaurant with great food for all courses, coupled with a very complete wine list to pair your meal. Staff very professional, knowledgable and friendly. Strongly recommend, one of the highlights for my visit in the area.

Went for dinner and the degustation menu with matching wines was very good with exceptional service throughout. Couldn't fault the food although nothing was completely outstanding. However, remember this isn't downtown in a big city so given the location, it's really great. Go on, treat yourself.

Food, wine, luxury accommodation and a genuine welcome await. Just one hour from Adelaide and set atop a gentle hill, Appellation at The Louise is highly regarded as one of Australia's finest restaurants led by chef Ryan Edwards. With a passion for real, fresh local ingredients, Ryan and his team are guided by the rhythms of the seasons - harvesting from their kitchen garden, baking their own breads, butchering and curing their own meats - and see wine and food as the most natural of partners. A four course seasonal menu is available nightly, except on a Tuesday when it's Local's Night where our chefs choose your three course set menu. An award-winning wine list of over 400 listings celebrating local artisans, emerging stars and established masters offers much choice to guests. Surrounded by vineyards in a truly memorable setting, Appellation is a dining destination worthy of a detour. Appellation is co-located with The Louise luxury vineyard retreat.
