A few of us had lunch at this delightful restaurant recently. We had an excellent table with great view of vines and the countryside. Everything was delicious. The standout was the chicken and the lamb. The Knickerbocker Glory dessert was divine and large enough for four of us to share. This was a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon, wonderful company, delicious food and attentive service and the bonus was we could use our Entertainment card. Thoroughly recommended!

On a recent holiday to Mclaren Vale after a great wine tasting at the Shingleback Winery we had lunch at the Elbow Room beside the winery. The meals were of a very high standard for a country town. We all enjoyed our meals and the good wine list. The service was excellent in a very pleasant dinning room, a most enjoyable lunch.

Went to elbow room with a small table of 2. We had a wonderful pork dish with some amazing bubbly crackling which ive never tried before. The restaurant staff were attentive and professional and the kitchen seemed to be producing some delightful food!!
All in all the best experience we have had in mclaren vale

Nice place with lovely views. The wait staff were very pleasant and knowledgeable. The food was at best ok, at worst ..... Starters ok, not great. One main, lamb shoulder came in a sauce so strong ( like vegemite) that it could have been anything. Goat leg with baby turnips would have been better if the turnips were baby and not cubes of larger ones. Dessert of a frangipane rhubarb tart with rhubarb and macadamia ice cream sounded great but was actually a small cupcake type friand with a little rhubarb on top and inside - not my idea of a tart. Perhaps it was deconstructed. The ice cream was pleasant but not much flavour. They were both served on a chocolate tile which doesn't really go very well with rhubarb and there was a random bright pink macaron. I have heard much better things of their food from other people so may be we were just unlucky.

After some morning wine tasting, we were recommended this restaurant for lunch. It's a lovely setting with doors opening onto the vines, light and airy with terrific, knowledgeable and friendly service. The food and wine maintained the standard and it was a really enjoyable occasion.
