We live locally and have noticed the Ekhidna car park was always full. We booked in for a Sunday lunch and arrived early to do some wine tasting beforehand. Working our way down the wine list I was surprised and delighted at the quality and range of their wine varieties. Lucky also for us the winemaker opened up a bottle of his premium Shiraz to try and we were astounded at how good it was.
We then took a sample tray of the beers over to our table - once again blown away by the quality and range.
The food was excellent, the atmosphere relaxed, the service friendly and helpful. Ginger beer superb.
Makes me so happy to live close by.

Superb value for money wives. The Grenache blend is a great wine for its price range. Very engaging service.

A lovely spot in the McLaren Vale wine region south of Adelaide for us to celebrate a family member's birthday.
We sampled their home made beers and some of their own wines before deciding on the Ekhidna Grenache to have at our table. We had a window seat overlooking their vineyards, a very pleasant ambiance. It was made all the more memorable with the delicious selection of dishes we chose and with the very attentive and friendly staff.
So glad I found and can now confirm the Ekhidna Kitchen as one of the highest rated restaurants in this region.

It's 12.30 Saturday afternoon in picturesque McLaren Vale and our tummies rumble.. Knowing the reputation of Ekhidna Kitchen I booked in advance. From the moment we stepped in the door, the atmosphere was amazing. Friendly, yet refined. A brief tasting of the wines (absolutely recommended before lunch) gave us the opportunity to select a wine to have over lunch. 08 Shiraz was the order of the day for us. After a beautiful bread for starters, it was steak for me and lamb shank for the wife. OMG!!! It was like the stars aligned or something.
I haven't tasted steak that good for years, and as is often not the case at many restaurants, my request for well done was delivered to perfection. The lamb simply fell of the bone, my wife loved it. The sticky date to finish was stunning. We have not stopped telling people about it. Seriously, do yourself a favor, make a booking and enjoy something very special in a beautiful setting.
If 5 points is top marks then you guys get 10 for our experience. We will be back without a doubt. Thank you so much.
