Had lunch here on two days over the weekend. Had pizzas from the wood fired oven and appreciated the icy air-conditioning (it was hot!) and warm service.

We had to come back in an hour as there were no tables at 1 pm on a Saturday, which probably is an indication that the Fodders is popular. The food was fine - lots of oven wood pizza choices. Not a lot of selection for children. Toilets are outside adjacent to the playground. Nice atmosphere - a mixture of... More

Perfect for a light meal during a day touring the Coonawarra wineries. Good selection of healthy menu items, and great pizzas. My pizza really wasn't a light meal, but I couldn't resist! Interesting that they have their own small wine selection, and we bought their pinot gris, "Ottelio", in spite of having no intention to do so - try it... More

Lovely fresh food, home cooked, great coffee too! Decided to pig out a little and have the donut. It was worth the wait, delicious and filled with scrummy passionfruit filling. Great place to sustain yourself before hitting a vineyard or two!

We were recommended Fodder by our motel. Food was good, service a little slow. We had the wood fired pizzas and a local wine. Would recommend.

Wow - we didn't expect anything of this quality on the hidden back roads of Coonawarra. The food was top quality - ragu of beef cheek w ricotta risotto a highlight - the wine list was eclectic in a good way with a great local, national and international selection, and very reasonably priced. And the owner chef was delightful &... More
