We had a lovely family lunch here on a Sunday - we were lucky to have a 1pm booking so weren't rushed. Note, there is a minimum 2 course menu per person but they are happy for couples to share and organise extra plates etc. We had a table of 6 and everyone's meals were amazing. Staff are friendly and... More

After some wine tasting at this fine establishment, this was also the perfect setting for lunch. Quick service, with attention to detail. Amazing food and flavours. Will definitely come back for the wine, the food, the friendly staff, and the ambience.

d'Arry's Verandah, where do I start.... This place never lets me down I have been here 4 times now and I loved it more and more each time. The service is well above most restaurants. It feels very personalised and some how they make you feel like you are the only one dinning there. The views from the restaurant are... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our tasting menu, even the extra course of Gnocchi and Pine Mushrooms, that dish was a standout. We went for lunch as we have loved the view and food, this time of year though to cool to sit outside, didn't bother us though as we were there to eat!!

This was a repeat visit to the restaurant and there is a reason we came back! Amazing scenery, the knowledge of the staff was limitless, the food looked and tasted spectacular and our party of 10 never wanted for a thing! Made a perfect stop for lunch on our girls trip (10 from across SA, NT, Vic and Qld), could... More

My wife and squeezed in just before the end of lunch service but were not rushed. Everything we had was impressively presented and cooked to perfection. Of particular note was the lamb main.

I must admit, I was not being aware of the calibre of this restaurant until I sat down to write my review and read the Trip Advisor comments. We were having a lovely day in McLaren Vale when it was time for lunch. We decided to combined the wine tasting at d'Arenberg with lunch. I had the duck, my husband... More

We had high hopes of this place, based on its reputation and menu prices, and we were not disappointed. The menu is really interesting - for example as someone who often orders Salmon Fillet, I was pleasantly surprised by the meat being so tasty (cooked to "just done" as per chef recommendation) and the accompaniments being very creative in variety...
