I decided to return to the Ekhidna Kitchen, this time taking my family (visiting from NZ) as we were visiting McLaren Vale. I had mentioned to my family (and TripAdvisor!) how much I enjoyed the food and the beer so I was ever so pleased that the Ekhidna kitchen and its staff came through once again!

The service was warm and friendly, the food was excellent and the beer was, as ever, marvellous. I love the smooth flavours of the dark, the light zinginess of the 50/50 (wheat/ginger), and the deceptive strength of the IPA.

Ekhidna kitchen was also very accommodating of the two very small children we brought along, providing high chairsat the table and extra space around us for the stroller, bags, capsules etc. that comes with travelling with kids!

The daily specials were just that, and the marinated olives, fantastic.

I can't recommend this place highly enough. And best of all it's just down the road from Maximus wines and Foggo wines both also worth a visit. Oh, and so is the Samuel's Gorge vineyard, Awesome views, great wine.
