An excellent dinner with friends sitting at a window seat and enjoying the view. Great menu choices with a vegetable/salad bar. Highly recommended.

Came with a group of 12 on a Saturday night. Received fairly appalling service, with a waitress who was in tears at one point for some reason. Drinks failed to arrive, took several prompts to finally get. Meals for 12 people came out staggered over about 30 min period. Kids meals came out LAST! Very ordinary food, particularly for the...

I've been here several times for a meal before theatre, conferences and a snack and wine to catch up with friends. Apart from the pokies which always take away from atmosphere I'd recommend for sure

I was part of a group of about 20 people. It was our annual Christmas breakup lunch. Customer service is something that means a great deal. I might come back to a place for a good product, but if I get excellent customer service, I'll always come back to a place. We got excellent customer service for our meal. The... More

The service here is fantastic, attentive & friendly. My meal however was pretty awful. Gnocchi with confit duck... the gnocchi was overcooked & the duck confit looked like sloppy dog food with intermittent tastes of garlic & then salt. Not a nice description but unfortunately accurate in this case. My partner enjoyed his meal of the steak. We will return... More

Easy place to eat when you don't want to go far from home. We probably eat here about 4 times a year. Sometimes go before we go to the cinema next door. Tonight the chef did me a favour and switched out the linguine for homemade gnocchi with a smoked salmon creamy sauce with capers and spinach. I really enjoyed... More

Once again, this venue produced good honest tasty food which was reasonably priced. My salt and pepper squid was beautifully cooked without being at all oily. My partner's pasta was freshly prepared and modified to cater for her food allergies - all without any problem. The selected wines were of good quality and price. Service was friendly and efficient. Overall... More

Mount Barker is quite a long way from home, so we don't come here often, but when we do, Auchendarroch is a good meal stop. We come for our midday meal, and have a very pleasant table for two, by the window with a garden outlook. The service is excellent and attentive. We order and receive our drinks at our... More

We have dined at Auchendarroch Tavern a few times and have always found the food to be outstanding. The staff are friendly and the choice on the menu encourages you to come back. I highly recommend the movie and meal deal as you get the admission to your choice of movie and a special menu. The staff will also make... More
