We ate at the Barn twice, it was that good the first time around. A good menu with quite a few options, and the quality and presentation of the food was really good. The wine list is minimal, but they have wine room where you go and choose the bottle you want, a great concept. Will definitely return when next... More

We had dinner here for my husband's birthday on a Sunday night in August. It was pretty quiet, so we got a table by the fire and had a very cosy time :) Being able to go into the wine room and consider all the wines on offer was a really nice aspect, and the recommendation provided by the guy...

Food was delicious and portions were more than adequate. Wine selection was good with wines from around the McLaren Vale region and priced reasonably. Sitting in the inside 'al fresco' section during winter and getting warmed by the fire was a lovely experience.

Have visited this restaurant many times over the past 30years and it still remains consistently good in all aspects, food, service and atmosphere. Dined here for lunch today, we both had the Kingfish, delightful, such a relaxing vibe and being able to select your own wine adds to the distinction of this restaurant.

I have been to this restaurant a few times over the years nad have never had a bag experience or a bag meal. This restaurant consistently service good food and have always had friendly staff. They have a wine room that you can visit to pick out the bottle of wine that you want to drink with your meal. This... More

On the main drag in McLaren Vale. Nice staff. Great selection of local wines in their cellar (that you go and pick yourself). Food was pretty good too! I would recommend it.

Ate early as we'd wined across several estates having flown in from Brisbane that morning and had a full day of wineries coming up. From being the only people there - 4 of us - soon filled up on a winter's Sunday night and quality of food and ambience the reasons why. Liked the way the wine shop is laid... More
