We've been here consistently over the last two years. We've seen the food evolve and have loved the flavours and changes that have come through. The staff are very friendly and highly professional. Jo leads a great team with Brenda, Danielle and others who are all equally as fabulous. We love the food- it's simple food- done exceptionally well with... More

We attended the wine blending class in the morning at d"Arenburg Winery and decided to stay for lunch. We didn't book but they managed to fit us in. He had the chicken, I had the pork. Both main courses were delicious but the pork was to "die for". So tender and delicious. We had the Brulee for dessert and it... More

We had a good luncheon at this venue. Besides the "Cube" construction outside the building the restaurant site is on a high point and has excellent views over McLaren Vale. The restaurant inside verandah has a good ambience and all tables have views and are pleasantly apart. Some tables are located outside on the patio. The welcome by the restaurant... More

We had the 8 course tasting menu with the wine pairing. I give it a 10 out of 10 - i absolutely love this place and it is a highlight on our annual visit to McLaren Vale, truly. They are only open for lunch which seems a waste to spend so much time of the cellar-open time in a leisurely... More

Had the best meal I have had in years! The menu was wonderful, great ambience, beautiful setting and great service! Would definitely recommend the crab/ lobster bisque, best I have ever had! Can't wait to return....

This restaurant has great food and can be recommended. I have scored it very good and not excellent since the service for food was slow and there were numerous blow flies in the windows next to our table. The prices are a bit on the high side, but the views of the valley are very good and one can sit... More

This is a great place for lunch. The view over the vineyards is beautiful. Service friendly and attentive. Every dish ordered was applauded. Kangaroo, duck and steak for main course, all perfectly prepared. Sides were all good Chocolate pudding, passion fruit soufflé and Brie cheese for desert - we were all well satisfied Wines are reasonably priced. In my opinion,... More

A wonderful degustation lunch shared with my family members and topped off by a visit from Sir Wackiness himself - winemaker Chester Osborn and his wonderful 90 year old dad d'Arry, who was a good friend of my late father. At $95 per head the degustation menu is not a cheap lunch but it is well worth the experience and... More

3-star Michelin restaurants clearly offer a better service and more legantly presented dishes but from a price performance point of view the meal we had yesterday at d'Arry's beats anything we ever had any Michelin place. For actually reasonable mid-range prices and with quite affordable wines we had among the most tasteful dishes in our lives. Incredible and unexpected in... More

From memory the food, wine and views are all great. And the Cube looks sensational. But the customer service leaves a whole lot to be desired. We wanted to buy a gift certificate for a friend but the staff were 'so' busy setting up for lunch it was all too hard for them to accommodate a five minute $200+ sale.... More
