Beautiful restaurant, knowledgable helpful friendly staff and Sommelier. We had the Degustation Menu with matching wines. The nice part about this menu compared to other Degustation Menu's was for each course there was a choice and as there were 4 of us we almost all had a different item from the menu and were able to sample each others food...

Excellent restaurant with great food for all courses, coupled with a very complete wine list to pair your meal. Staff very professional, knowledgable and friendly. Strongly recommend, one of the highlights for my visit in the area.

Went for dinner and the degustation menu with matching wines was very good with exceptional service throughout. Couldn't fault the food although nothing was completely outstanding. However, remember this isn't downtown in a big city so given the location, it's really great. Go on, treat yourself.

We had an outstanding 4 course dinner. Lately we have been trying out tasting menus because restaurants will accommodate our pescatarian diet. Not only did they offer that for us they created a special menu to choose from. The wine pairing was spot on with the favors of each dish. We had 2 seafood dishes and the shitake mushrooms followed... More

With 16 dishes to choose from across four menu courses the evening degustation dining experience at Appellation provides a wonderful opportunity for each diner to craft their own menu of four selected / intersecting dishes. Each dish was superb, innovatively prepared and beautifully presented. The matching wines were also well considered to accentuate the taste sensations. Service was timely and... More

Appellation stands out as an exceptional dining experience. Excellent setting, looking out over the valley, superb food (go for the king george whiting if it is on! ), extensive wine list but something for everyone and all budgets, and impeccable service. Will be going back the next time I visitthe balley.

On recommendation from a local, we headed up to the Louise to try the burger menu in their bar. Outstanding burgers. Nice atmosphere and excellent service, of course. Followed up with the amazing donuts. Share, as you get two per serve. The beef burger will come a bit rare and char grilled on the outside. If you would like it... More

This is a beautiful restaurant in a nice setting. We had the full course set dinner and the quality ranged from good to excellent. The effort in quality, preparation and presentation was obvious and we thoroughly enjoyed some dishes. The timing of service was a bit slow as we had to wait as long as 30 mins for the next... More

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.
