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!

Cosy wine amd local beer tasting bar leads to a neat 10 table setup with a view of a neighbouring winery and vines. Ekhidna makes wines from grapes purchased from local growers. We tasted the range which was good+ overall but only one standout, the Rarefied Shiraz, but not at $90! The grenache shiraz blend was best value. The vegetables... More

Been here a few times- staff are always friendly and helpful. Wine is great and the food is brilliant. Love the creativity in the menu. Very laid back and a great location- right in the vines. Gorgeous

Had lunch here during a recent visit to McLaren Vale. The salt and pepper squid was delightful and we had a bottle of their Fiano with it. A good match. Lovely décor and outlook and the service was prompt and very friendly.

My partner and I had lunch at Ekhidna whilst on our Cellar Door Tours wine tour (highly recommend this tour company too!) It was an outstanding experience- the view is beautiful, the staff were friendly and chatted with us, and the food was absolutely delicious! My partner ordered the pork belly and we both agree that it was the best... More

Nice little restaurant not far out of McLaren Vale. Pleasant setting alongside the grapevines and on the major road, easy to find. Varied menu with average prices. Food cooked really well. Disappointed that the prices on the wine list are far in excess of their cellar door prices ($25 at cellar door, $35 at the table.) But apart from that,... More
