Celebrated a family birthday lunch with babies and toddlers in tow. Every staff member was friendly and made us feel welcome. Great live music added to the relaxed atmosphere with lots of room between tables for the little ones to dance. Food lovely and wine superb. Large lawned area, playground and kangaroo enclosure made the experience even more enjoyable.

The location of the restaurant was beautiful and with a wildlife sanctuary at the same location, got to see some kangaroos and wallabies that were saved from the wild. The food was kind of average. Not very tasty and pretty simple. We did hear the pizzas were good here but, unfortunately they weren't serving them for lunch when we went.

I really enjoyed the live music performed by a musician I do not know and whose name is not obvious at the venue or on the web site - he did a wonderful performance and is very talented (solo male singing with guitar some Johnny Cash blended with Eric Clapton and Leonard Cohen). Our waitress was lovely, friendly and she's... More

We rang ahead to book a table and they were unfortunately fully booked, so we called in anyway. To our surprise they found us a table and the experience began. This has the best steak ever and the pork was up there too! The wines exquisite and the desert to die for! Excellent staff and we happened to be there... More

We had lunch at The Woodstock Winery back in 2012 and we made a special effort to stop there again on our 2016 holiday. The antipasto plate for two makes a great lunch along with a couple of glasses of their red wine. The restaurant is back in the forest and the décor inside is very pleasant. They also have... More

The location is just divine. We ordered the rib eye to share, which was very tasty but also very fatty. The sides were delicious. The service in the beginning was great but after the meals it was almost non existent. Would go back for another lunch and try a different dish, just because we had a wonderful time. Also visited...

Stopped here for lunch during a wine tasting tour of Mclaren Vale. The 50 day aged sirloin was absolutely delicious - cooked perfectly and the seasoning and sauce was spot on. One of the best steaks I've ever had. The cheese and regional platters were delicious and the wines were wonderful too. Service was good and surroundings beautiful. Would recommend.

We arrived on what was looking a very hot day in SA. No problem. The air con was cranked up and we were very chilled. Entrees were great but the Slow Cooked LAMB was STUNNING!!!!!!!! Wines were superb and desert (don't normally do chocolate for desert) was just great. Fab Day !

Woodstock Coterie, built in 1988, was designed to nestle among the towering century old gum trees. The design took into consideration the location of each of these amazing native trees. Not one significant tree was cut down to accommodate building the restaurant. Hence, the Coterie's unique semicircle shape. Rammed earth walls encase the dining area, providing a warm feel and at the same time complementing The Coterie's unique quintessentially Australian landscape. Glass doors and windows frame the lush native gardens creating an atrium feel for the discerning patron. Upstairs there is a mezzanine level available for private tastings, conferences and functions.The name 'Coterie' was chosen for the word's meaning; the gathering of a group of people, or rather a circle of friends, for a specific purpose... that for us includes great food, good company and finest wines at Woodstock
