Haven't had a Coriole wine for years so we went here with an open mind. After reading some of the less than favourable reviews I thought we may have made a mistake in the choice of venue. A nice sunny day helped make the setting superb. The food has Wow factor, especially the squid, the pate and the brocolinni dish.... More

Great Share Style Lunch in a beautiful part of the McLaren Vale! 4 of us chose a $59 menu which included "a taste of all the standout dishes from the chef..." Soooo worth it!!! Beautiful prepared local produce such as house baked brioche with homemade duck liver pate and smoked beetroot jam with roasted local heirloom beetroots, creamed local chèvre... More

If you are looking for a calm tranquil lunch with family then look no further then the shared lunch at Coriole. So much flavour and local produce goes into the dishes, with an abundance to share. I ate local plants that I had never heard of before and was blown away by the complimenting flavours!! I loved the sharing plates,... More

I was there with my family, in total 8 people. We ordered their suggested menu (degustation) for $59. For that price in my experience you can eat like a KING in many places! Well, not at Coriole, the food was not at all special and certainly not abundant. A real disappointment. On top of that, the waiter was particularly unfriendly... More

A great place to spend the afternoon. Shared plates of food were ideal as not so formal. The scenery was beautiful. The wines & beers went down really well on a balmy afternoon

My sister and I visited Coriole two weeks ago and I am still thinking about the duck pate. I am salivating at just the thought! The restaurant has a stunning view over the vineyards below and a beautiful grassed area and cottage garden for kids to play. A fantastic setting for a wedding. So glad I do not live far... More

Had a fantastic lunch here, the setting is brilliant with large well spaced out tables. Loved that they offered a degustation menu which was what we had. All the dishes were skillfully cooked and beautifully presented. The rose was a great wine choice to match with the food.

Perfect day trip for lunch,food was outstanding,fresh and full of flavour. We especially liked the fresh picked asparagus. Great wines to compliment the food and all in a very pleasant setting with views of the vineyards and cottage garden. Good service and friendly staff...definitely a top notch restaurant experience.

Enjoyed a leisurely lunch at Coriole with the beautiful garden in bloom. The chef came to our table several times to check how our meal was. Service excellent with friendly staff. Dietary requirements were catered for. Great experience & thoroughly recommend
