We were so looking forward to a sublime dinner experience but it was not to be. The evening started with a stunning location for glass of wine overlooking the vines and early sunset - one glass of Fiano (very good) and one glass of the Three Blend White (cloudy in the glass and very strange flavour). Upon enquiry we were... More

We had the "Locals Evening" dinner (Tuesday nights) and had a superb evening. We started with drinks on the terrace, overlooking the vineyard. Lovely view. We were a group of 4 and each couple was each given a different starter, main and dessert, which was a perfect aid to sharing. The food was creative and excellent quality. The service was,... More

Amazing venue, from the entry to the outdoor area overlooking the vines and incredible sunset this place is a class act. Impeccable service, was here on a Tuesday which is locals night and set three course meal. Very impressed and would highly recommend.

My family has enjoyed a creative dinner here which was beautifully presented and served with dose of friendliness from its waiters. The background is a wide view of vineyards lie a sea of green. The only snag is that services was slow taking a who;e three hours!

We had dinner on Saturday night and it was fabulous. The degustation menu with selected wines was an excellent choice. The food texture and taste certainly lived up to the restaurants reputation and the selection of local wines really complemented the dishes. A pricey restaurant but well worth a visit if you are staying in the area to enjoy finely... More

Appellation lived up to its reputation. I have to specifically mention the pork belly. The delicacy of the meat, the texture of the crackle combined with the other little surprises on the plate were sublime. All the dishes were delectable and the selection of wine for each dish really good and sometimes a great new discovery.

Incredible 4 course menu in South Australia version of US Napa Sonoma region. The meal was beyond perfect, duck pate, scallops, red snapper, beef and deserts. A bit pricey but worth every penny. Service was exceptional as well.

Went to Appellation on locals night which is great value and a little experimental with some of the dishes This is a great way to experience a top notch restaurant at local prices, which many of them also enjoy

The most impressive, beautiful and delicious dinner I've ever had in the Barossa Valley to celebrate wedding anniversary. The staff were well trained and offered an exceptional level of service. There was a good choice of options for each course (at least 4 options per course) and amazing choice of wines. Can't wait to go back, though may have to... More

My wife and I dined here for my wife's birthday. We had been looking forward to it very much and weren't disappointed. The setting is lovely, enhanced for our pleasure by a family of kangaroos who dined themselves by the vines in front of the restaurant. The service was charming, unstuffy and very helpful in helping you select from the... More

Description
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.
