Description: Woodstock Coterie, built in 1988, was designed to nestle among the towering century old gum trees. The design took into consideration the location of each of these amazing native trees. Not one significant tree was cut down to accommodate building the restaurant. Hence, the Coterie's unique semicircle shape. Rammed earth walls encase the dining area, providing a warm feel and at the same time complementing The Coterie's unique quintessentially Australian landscape. Glass doors and windows frame the lush native gardens creating an atrium feel for the discerning patron. Upstairs there is a mezzanine level available for private tastings, conferences and functions.The name 'Coterie' was chosen for the word's meaning; the gathering of a group of people, or rather a circle of friends, for a specific purpose... that for us includes great food, good company and finest wines at Woodstock

A very warm welcome by excellent staff in a beautiful setting... a glass of my favourite Woodstock wine and an amazing dish... I had the Tiger Prawns... the music was a little loud but very good... next time we hope to be seated a bit further away from them! I really look forward to going back...in summer and sit outside!

The setting is lovely and the dining room is very nice. The wine is quite nice too but the food was very average and overpriced. Several people at our table and most of the them found the food disappointing. The deserts were very lovely to look at but were very overpriced. The choice and loudness of the music played by...

The tables outside are surrounded by beautiful views. Food was really not up to the standard of other McLaren Vale wineries. Dips plate comes with 4 dips but flavour combinations didn't really work. Shiraz and beetroot risotto had no flavour apart from the goats cheese on top. Didn't even bother ordering desserts as we assumed it would be disappointing.

We had a wonderful experience at Woodstock Winery, the food and wine were amazing and service was excellent, what a lovely environment to enjoy with friends and family with the beautiful surroundings and inside live entertainment, it was a fantastic relaxing afternoon. Looking forward to going back.

I was overwhelmed by the experience I received here, the food was well above what I was expecting, especially from a cellar door sales winery restaurant. The amazing wine was only a small part of it, the service and food was on par with the best I have had when comparing it to the top restaraunts I've eaten at, which... More

We are regulars to Woodstock, in particular for mothers day, and this year was very disappointing for us. As we come here most years we know that the mothers are made to feel special. However this year was a disappointment, the restaurant manager was no where to be seen and was obviously not in control of the service or interested... More

I've come here twice recently, once for lunch and once for their Friday pizza night ($35 starter, all you can eat pizza & dessert) and am looking forward to going back again. Both times there was very pleasant live music playing inside. The standard menu was great, I was in a group of five and we all really enjoyed our... More

Thank you for taking the time to let others know about your experience here at Woodstock. Pizza night is definitely a favorite among the locals and even those that have to drive a distance to come! You will also be excited to know that we are launching our autumn menu in the next few days to come. It would be... More
