The Barn ticked all the boxes for us on a damp, cold night: a warm and cosy atmosphere; an equally warm welcome; prompt service; quality cuisine; a comprehensive range of local wines by the glass.

We visited for a double birthday celebration. We were a party of 20 and we had a very good meal. The setting is really nice and the wine cellar is amazing and can be visited by the clients. Wow.

The Barn at McLaren Vale is one of the best restaurants in South Australia. It has a nice country feel, the environment is fantastic, and the atmosphere is truly one to savour. I have had many a wonderful King George Whiting there, and I try to get there every time I am back in Adelaide. I thoroughly recommend The Barn.... More

Lovely service with sensational food. Beautiful warm environment with fire places inside, but also a great sized outdoor courtyard which would be perfect for those balmy summer nights. We will be back!

We had our anniversary dinner here recently and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. From the sparkling lights to the friendly service the entire evening was lovely. The food was very tasty and they had a great special on for the moment which included a 3 course meal at a very reasonable price. This is definitely a place we will visit again.
