My husband, baby daughter and I visited Ekhidna wines this afternoon and had a truly lovely afternoon gazing over the vineyards. On arrival we were greeted by a friendly waitress who offered us a seat at the bar or a table in the restaurant. She highlighted to us that they were only serving platters at that stage which we were... More

We had lunch on one of the outside tables, lovely setting. The food however was average at best, all entrees and mains were overcooked and dry. We ordered scallops, pork belly, duck and chicken.Would not bother going back.

A near perfect lunch experience. The place was recommended in a friendly winery we have just visited and we were very glad we went there. The service was uniformly great, attentive without being overbearing. A waitress arrived at our table just as needed and always knew the answers to our questions. We could not taste everything from the very original... More

Arrived here after a D'arenberg wine tasting. Tried the wines and beers. Chose a lovely Grenache (96 points from James Halliday) as well a ginger beer for the girls! The antipasto platter was awesome - they were more than happy to add gluten free bread and also include some Gouda (for those of us who don't do Goats cheese). We... More

Lunch at Ekhidna - beautiful views across the vines - wine AND beer - good food - great service. For non-wine drinkers the tasting flight of five different beers (for $7.50) is very good value. Sharing a couple of tasting plates at lunch provides an opportunity to taste of some local produce. Good place to take our friends from overseas... More

We headed to Echidna for lunch after visiting D'Arrenberg and Rosemont winerys on the recommendation of the very helpful lady in the McLaren Vale Visitor Information Centre. Incidentally this is the best info centre I have come across - they really go out of their way to help and have all the maps etc to help plan your day in... More

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were treated with exceptional customer service. The friendly staff, made us feel welcome. Our meals and drinks were served in perfect timing. It was my daughter's 22nd birthday and the waitresses served her a candlelit desert and presented this with a chorus of Happy Birthday. You made our night... More

Situated in beautiful McLaren Vale overlooking the vineyards. Friendly, cheerful staff, lovely food and great service. We didn't do the beer tasting but did try the wines. Love that you can order your meal and then do some wine tasting to decide what you would like to go with it.
