Went there for our Wedding Anniversary. From the moment we arrived, with greeting at the door, being seated in the new lounge for pre- drinks, a lovely Tasmanian Heemskerk Sparkling, then to the table where we were seated next to each other on a lovely padded sofa type arrangement, with views across the vineyard to the Adelaide Plains. We opted... More

We were not expecting to love the dining experience, as the reviews had been mixed. Previously, Magill Estate had excellent food but variable service bordering on pretentiousness. However, we were very impressed. The renovations have made the restaurant warm, inviting and welcoming while still maintaining a luxurious and unique ambience. The food was spectacular - interesting and delicious. We had... More

I recently ate here with family for a special occasion. We ordered the lunch degustation. The service was very good, although a little cold at first. The wine list is impressive and vast as you would expect. The food was delicious, although relatively small portions compared to other degustation lunches I have been to. The restaurant itself lacks a bit... More

Magill Estate was one of the most memorable dining experiences I've ever had - the food was paired with wines from the Penfolds vineyard that are not available for sale and only served to guests of the restaurant. We did a degustation menu and it was a great deal of food but not so much that we couldn't take advantage... More

We went to this restaurant with low expectations as there were some poor reviews on Urbanspoon. However, we were pleasantly surprised. We ordered the lunch degustation with matching wines. Each dish that arrived at our table was carefully thought out and prepared. The produce was fresh and complimented each other. We really enjoyed the food here and it rivals some... More

The degustation experience was superb. It's well worth having the wine matched with the food by the experts, the sommelier was highly knowledgable. All the attentive professional staff were happy to answer questions about the food or wine making the experience richer. The seven courses were well paced and we found the food hard to fault. Tables are well spaced... More

I had visited this restaurant previously years ago for a business lunch and the experience was so memorable that I made a point to take my husband there for his birthday upon recently returning to Adelaide. Some places are worth preserving and a working winery in the Adelaide Hills where the Penfolds brand began, where you can taste their world... More

Our son from interstate suggested a family outing to Penfolds Magill. With their experience of Sydney degustations and our limited experience also, we set out to see what Penfolds could offer. Staff saw us coming up the long path to the restarant and were waiting to greet us, we were shown to our table, marvelling at the number of staff... More

My wife and I went to Penfolds with friends for their degustation menu. We were a little intimidated at the thought as it has a reputation as one of Adelaide's best restaurants. On arrival we were greeted with umbrella by the friendly staff and made to feel very comfortable. It was a wintry day but inside it was warm and... More

I was really looking forward to the Penfold Wines lunch experience as a finale before leaving Adelaide. The wine flight at over $120 did not include a Grange or Yattarna so I ordered by the glass. A glass of the RWT 2004 rang out at $55 which I thought was steep. For the set price of $135 pp for food... More
