Our first time in McLaren Vale we arrived at the Cellar door at 4.14 pm. The sign at the entry indicated a closing time of 4.30 pm. Knowing it was getting late we parked the car quickly and walked the short distance to the Cellar door only to find the closed sign swinging on the front door. The staff had... More

My husband and I have just returned from an amazing week in South Australia. The first two days and nights were spent at Serafino and were fantastic. The staff, the breakfasts,dinners all first class. A truly wonderful relaxing experience and great value for money. We will be back!

We recently purchased a scoopon deal for Serafino. Once we arrived, we entered our quaint room which was spacious, spa looked small but we both fit into it. The view from our front window was picturesque, so beautiful and relaxing. The dinner we had was so delicious and not overly priced either (even though included in price). The bed was... More

Last Saturday I attended a friend's 40th birthday lunch at Serafino's. I can not speak more highly of the experience, it was brilliant. In summary: * the food was magnificent - we all ate two courses - and I especially loved the lamb gnocchi. * the outlook was glorious - large windows looking out on the lake and other winery... More

I booked a night's accommodation at Serafino McLaren Vale for my partner's 30th birthday. I booked it so we could enjoy a day at the wineries then come back to a place nearby to relax. The opening of the soccer world cup was to be shown on the SBS channel that night (early next morning), however, when we switched the... More

Table for four last Friday night at Serafino. Was told it was a bit pricy but afterall, you pay for what you get! Believe me, we started on the Pork belly entree and after the first mouthfull, my mate and I looked at each other and said "Wow!" The pork, prawns and Asian trimmings had the palate dancing. The waiter... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing to dine at Serafino, while we don’t cater for the $15 pub meals we are reasonably priced, and as you found, is a first class meal and a great night out. Our Chef works to a high standard and youre right about “Marty”.. he is a hoot. He understands the meaning of happy and... More

My husband has been a long-time fan of Serafino Maglieri wines, so we had to go to Serafino. All the wines we tasted were very nice, and smooth. The Serafino 2010 Shiraz was lovely but I could imagine it would be amazing after 5 - 10 years in the cellar. The Sharktooth Shiraz is worth the money. Full bodied, lots... More

I have been to Serafino's many, many times over the years and in my opinion it only gets better. Food, service and class, it has it all. The ambiance of the place is lovely. I love the roll with there own olive oil or butter you get on arrival, no charge. The food, which to me is what its all... More

My husband and I decided to return to Serafino having enjoyed our last couple of meals here. However, this time around we were very disappointed. The waiting staff weren't friendly and gave us the impression that they didn't want to be there. We asked to have a taste of the 2011 Serafino Shiraz before we decided which wine to order.... More

My wife and I had dinner at the restaurant tonight. Absolutely sensational meal, beautiful wine and attentive but not over bearing service which was warm and friendly. Have eaten there before and never been disappointed.
