Saturday dinner with friends..

Lovely vibe, staff are super friendly and happy to help wherever they can. Food is beautiful with stunning wine to accompany. Beautiful surrounds of McLaren Vale set a perfect scene for any occasion.

We made a last minute decision on a Sunday to go to Ekhidna for lunch, rang and made a booking. It was my fifth visit and it was as good as the first time when I went a few years ago. The food selected by the four of us reached expectation as did the wines. Staff were friendly and the... More

Recently visited this Winery with 4 other friends. The staff were attentive and prompt. After taking our food orders we were invited to do a tasting while the food was being prepared.

Delicious flavours, if only the meals were a little larger. We ate the pork, beetroot pasta and steak tartare. The pasta was the pick of the meals. Great atmosphere, great beer, great wine. Well worth the trip to McLaren Vale.

We had a lovely meal here. The service was very good and our meals were delicious . I tried some of their cider which was enjoyable and we had a lovely relaxing time . I definitely would eat here again . The only disappointment was the apple pie which my friend ordered. They did not charge her for this and... More

Absolutely in awe of the beautiful restaurant and staff that make up Ekhidna Wines. I booked my 21st here already knowing that the food and wine was spectacular, and wanting to share that with my friends and family. They completely outdid themselves with my party. I had plenty of contact with the staff before the event to organise everything, and... More

This place has everything! Great wine, even better beer (if you're into something a little bit ginger), and the best beetroot pasta/main meal you could devour!! Do yourself a favour and get here!
