I stopped here for lunch on the recommendation of a local winery. The food was superb (crispy skin Barramundi) and the waitress was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The setting was nice, amid fields of grapevines and I just wish I lived nearby as I probably eat here several times a week. At least 5 stars!

My first visit to The Currant Shed and it was definitely up & down. We came early so we decided to have a few drinks outside before our other friends turned up. Sitting outside was fantastic with great views over Orchards & vineyard - definitely 5 star. When it came to the food I was also very happy with my... More

Such a relaxing atmosphere out on the patio with the gorgeous view. Good menu options and everything looks/tastes great. Dips plate comes with 4 dips, bread and cut veges. Main portions were good and reasonably priced. Would be a great wedding venue too!

We went to the currant shed on a quiet friday for lunch after recommendations from friends, the place itself is tucked away on a quiet street in Mclaren vale and has a beautiful view.

We went for a celebration lunch with a big group of us, the staff were attentive, we had a little room just off the courtyard and the food was delicious. All the orders came together, great fir group dining, and all were good. Would definitely recommend it.

Went there for lunch. The food was great and so were the staff but they were far too slow with their service. We spent about two and a half hours for lunch with and entree main course and desert.... And that restricted the number to wineries we could visit after lunch. Book a table for sure and order everything at... More

Not on a main road, quiet, but some interesting main courses combined with a range of McLaren Vale wines. Easy patron access. Plenty of parking. Pleasant orchard views. Impossible to find anything to dislike.

This place has now become our favourite restaurant of all time in McClaren Vale! Couldn't fault anything about it. Service, staff, food, wine, atmosphere was stunning.
