Incredible 4 course menu in South Australia version of US Napa Sonoma region. The meal was beyond perfect, duck pate, scallops, red snapper, beef and deserts. A bit pricey but worth every penny. Service was exceptional as well.

Went to Appellation on locals night which is great value and a little experimental with some of the dishes This is a great way to experience a top notch restaurant at local prices, which many of them also enjoy

The most impressive, beautiful and delicious dinner I've ever had in the Barossa Valley to celebrate wedding anniversary. The staff were well trained and offered an exceptional level of service. There was a good choice of options for each course (at least 4 options per course) and amazing choice of wines. Can't wait to go back, though may have to... More

My wife and I dined here for my wife's birthday. We had been looking forward to it very much and weren't disappointed. The setting is lovely, enhanced for our pleasure by a family of kangaroos who dined themselves by the vines in front of the restaurant. The service was charming, unstuffy and very helpful in helping you select from the... More

We decided to give Appellation a try given we were staying at the Louise. The views are very beautiful and there was a group of kangaroos on the lawn outside the restaurant while we had dinner which added something special to the evening. The service is certainly fine dining being professional and timely. The food was all very good although... More

My second visit here in 8yrs for an anniversary dinner. It is expensive and the kind of place you might come for a special occasion. Food and wine pairing was simply excellent and you will be impressed. Only criticisms are the beer selection needs the same care and attention as the winelist; serving only commercial large brands is not what... More

We were fortunate to get a table for the Tuesday night "local menu", with the dishes using fresh ingredients available locally. The food was fantastic. The wine pairing the staff recommended was very good despite being "last minute" as the chef had only just decided what to cook. Service was immaculate. We had a wonderful time.

I decided to book at Appellation for my partner's birthday when we spent five days at the Barossa recently as a special treat. We begun with a pre-dinner drink on the terrace and it was very peaceful with the sun setting in the distance. I really enjoyed this atmosphere and the anticipation of a wonderful evening ahead. We didn't opt... More

My husband and I dined here recently to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food was exquisite and service was excellent, we had a beautiful evening. Highly recommend the degustation menu with paired wines. We will absolutely return again if ever we are back in the Barossa - just supurb.

Description
Food, wine, luxury accommodation and a genuine welcome await. Just one hour from Adelaide and set atop a gentle hill, Appellation at The Louise is highly regarded as one of Australia's finest restaurants led by chef Ryan Edwards. With a passion for real, fresh local ingredients, Ryan and his team are guided by the rhythms of the seasons - harvesting from their kitchen garden, baking their own breads, butchering and curing their own meats - and see wine and food as the most natural of partners. A four course seasonal menu is available nightly, except on a Tuesday when it's Local's Night where our chefs choose your three course set menu. An award-winning wine list of over 400 listings celebrating local artisans, emerging stars and established masters offers much choice to guests. Surrounded by vineyards in a truly memorable setting, Appellation is a dining destination worthy of a detour. Appellation is co-located with The Louise luxury vineyard retreat.
