Four of us have been chatting about doing dinner at Maximilian's for months and we finally found our way up the hill. Seriously an evening to remember! I would highly recommend this venue for wine tasting, casual outdoor nibbles and dinner. We started by doing a tasting a the cellar door. We arrived not long before they closed but instead... More

My wife & I recently dined at Maximilian's for the first time. We'd heard great things about the place, and were very happy with our dining experience. The food was absolutely fantastic, and the quantities were very, very generous. The place was packed, for good reason. The service was very good all night, only dropping slightly as the restaurant filled,... More

Have been to this restaurant twice previously for dinner and it was faultless, which is why we returned here for Sunday lunch. The weather was perfect, as was the views and the grounds, but that's where the joy ended. We were seated in the front enclosed verandah which has a beautiful outlook, however it was ruined by the large blowflies... More

9 of us ventured up to Verdun to Maximilians for Sunday lunch. We were seated in the Pro Hart room which was lovely and private room with an open fire and offered sweeping views over the vineyard. The meals and prices were generally very good and the wine selection was great. I had an entree of pork belly, tender and... More

We booked this restaurant and attended for lunch as we were having a lovely time for 3 days in the Barossa. The waitress was very nice. However we waited an hour and 20 minutes for our main meal. Yes we were enjoying our wine and chatting but really how long does it take. We didn't have entrees. After asking them... More

We have enjoyed Maximillian's 'new' hospitality 3 times now and each time it has been a triumph. We, all 19 of us with varied and very discerning palates, wanted to thank you so much for such a lovely evening; the food was exquisite and the service friendly and professional. It was a cold, wet and windy night but this was... More

We had pork belly to start with which before ordering we asked if it was going to be crisp on the top (pet hate of mine if it isn't) we were reassured that it would but I'm sure you know I'm going to say, surprise surprise, nope wasn't at all. For main I had the duck which was actually amazing... More

We were told about this place by a nearby vintner whose own eatery was closed on a public holiday. It was a bitter day, and we were warmly accommodated without a reservation - literally! Seated by one of several open fires, we were treated to a wonderful version of Cauliflower soup, followed by the best shiraz and beef pie (pastry... More
