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 daily changing Chef's Tasting Menu with paired wines as well as a seasonal a la carte menu are available each night. 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.

We stayed at the Louise for three nights and were able to eat Appellation our first night. It is a small, quaint sitting room that lends itself to the romantic. The meal is never rushed and served in meticulous order. The service was 5 star with great attention to our needs and changes. We are a little eccentric and like... More

The type of accommodation at The Louise deserves a 5 star restaurant. Unfortunately, this is not the case. The Appellation is pleasant enough. The food is quality but not outstanding - perhaps too influenced by a perceived need to be a hotel eating experience rather than a quality one. All dishes used top quality ingredients, they were well prepared and... More

Why this restaurant has the reputation it does escapes me! The prices are bizarre, the petite portions hard to believe, the wine list extensive but most well up in the hundreds of dollars per bottle. Would not return! It is rated #1 of 1 in this town. If there were ten restaurants here, I would rate it closer to ten... More

Superb service, one of the few places that uphold their level of service throughout the meal, often service starts to slip after mains but not here. Delicious food, lovely setting. Hope to return one day.

We were here for an interstate weekend away and were very impressed with the quality of the wine and wagu marble score 9+ beef. Seriously was the best steak we have ever had in our lives, it was perfectly seared and just melted in your mouth. Loved the country scenic drive to the restaurant too and it is just the... More

I thoroughly enjoyed the tasting menu and paired wines. They were all delicious and the only fault is that I thought the first 2 courses could have been a little bigger. We were full by the end though. The dishes showed off some lovely produce and were very wholesome. The service is very friendly, and the pacing was very comfortable.... More

My fiancé and I had dinner here after a day of tasting and performed a self guided tour through the al carte menu. Although we had our fair of cheese throughout the day to accompany the wine the food was so good we kept on ordering more. Would certainly recommend booking in advance to try and coordinate a sunset as... More

We were lucky enough to done at Appelation on the last night of our Barossa getaway, and it certainly did not disappoint. The extensive wine list and beautifully crafted dishes made for a wonderful experience. We elected to bypass the chefs tasting menu and select from the extended menu. While everything was delicious the standout dishes for us were the... More
