“Beautiful vista, delicious food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The Lane is a must visit! Be sure to make a booking at least a couple of weeks in advance, as it's very popular. The restaurant overlooks the vineyards, and it's very picturesque. Staff are friendly and of course very knowledgeable on the wines. Food is excellent - fine dining quality. Prices are in line with this, and you must order a minimum of 2 courses on weekends.

You can also go to taste their extensive wine list, and order a cheese platter to share while you're there.

Overall, a beautiful spot - you won't be disappointed.

“Lovely Sunday lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

A beautiful spot in the Adelaide Hills with sweeping views across the vines, hills and valleys. The restaurant area is spacious. The deck also has tables which I have eaten at before but on this day it was too windy. Even though there are alot of hard surfaces and the tables were well sized I could still hear everyone at the table.
Food. Very Good. Not cheap, entrees in the 20s, mains in the 30s plus sides but good sized serves. All the starters and entrees we had were excellent. Again we were all pretty happy with the mains although I found the Gnocchi oversalted to my taste and a friend thought the duck a little chewy.
Service was very good not brilliant (had to ask for pepper and more water)
Overall fantastic place for a special lunch in an outstanding area of beauty
ps The Lois sparkling wine is yummy

“Perfect for that long, lazy lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

We recently enjoyed a long and lazy lunch at The Lane Vineyard. We started the affair with a wine tasting session whilst waiting for the rest of the group to arrive - which is a great way to decide what you are going to drink with the meal and you save the $10 tasting fee if you eat!
Make sure you try the delightful Lois sparkling it really is a lovely drop!

The menu is quite extensive so to make things simple we selected the "let us feed you" which turned out to be a great option as you get to sample pretty much everything on the menu.

Its an easy 45 minute drive from the city up the freeway to Hahndorf - which is worth a trip of its own with all the "cellar doors" set up in the main st.

Enjoy some fine Adelaide Hills hospitality!
