The Barossa is well known for its fabulous range of gourmet food as a complement to the region’s exceptional world class wines. Here are a few suggestions for lunch or dinner or simply to pick up a few nibbles for sitting out on the Barossa Vista decking before you light up the BBQ for dinner!
CAFÉS & NIBBLES
Maggie Beer www.maggiebeer.com.au
Samuel Road, Nuriootpa (08) 8562 4477
If you love pate, dips and nibbly bits then you will think that you have died and gone to heaven. Leave your diet at the door and indulge. Maggie has a great outdoor patio where you can sip coffee or a glass of wine and overlook the lake. My favourites to take home are the paste’s and of course any of Maggie’s wonderful pates.
Barossa Valley Cheese Company www.bvcc.com.au
Murray Street, Angaston (08) 8564 3636
Cheese glorious cheese! With the famous baby bert (that’s little mini camembert for the uninitiated) and dozens of other fabulous cheeses to choose from there is no other place in the Barossa to buy fresh cheese. Of course you can always go to a supermarket but that would not be nearly as much fun now would it!
Murray Street, Tanunda (08) 8563 1468
Really, really good coffee and great light lunches available 7 days. Plenty of regional and national produce on sale as well.
Blond Coffee blondcoffee.com.au
Murray Street, Angaston (08) 8564 3444
Go and see the lovely ladies at Blond for not only fantastic coffee but super platters and lunches which are exotic yet healthy. The toasted Panini are a crowd favourite.
Murray Street (inside the Old Mill), Tanunda (08) 8563 1097
This retro diner has everything from naughty to nice. Fair trade and organic lovers will be impressed as well as those with a sweet tooth craving something delectable.
Pubs serve cold beer and pub food – here are your locals for Barossa Vista.
The Club House

74 Murray Street, Tanunda
94 Murray Street, Tanunda (08) 8563 0405
Walking distance from Barossa Vista 1918 is one of the longest running restaurants in the Valley. A fairly traditional menu with something for everyone. Open for lunch and dinner 7 days.
Seppeltsfield Road, Marananga (08) 8562 2722
One of three fine dining options in the Barossa so be sure to book in advance. The degustation is focused on regional produce, with local wine matching of course, and it changes seasonally so you can come every time you are in the Barossa. Open for dinner 7 days.
Ferment Asian www.fermentasian.com.au
Murray Street, Tanunda (08) 8563 0765
Featuring modern twists on South East Asian food the creations from Ferment Asian are second to none. Growing much of their own produce and taking considerable care to wine match, which can be a mine field with Asian food. This is a ‘must do’ visit when you are in the Barossa.
Hentley Farm Restaurant www.hentleyfarm.com.au
Corner Gerald Roberts Road and Jenke Road, Seppeltsfield (08) 8562 8427
A truly memorable dining experience. The chef knows the region like the back of his hand and is dedicated to showcasing the local delicacies. Options are the full degustation for dinner (wine matching is thoroughly recommended) or a four course sampler for lunch. You will be delighted to dine at one of Australia’s best restaurants, not to be missed, bookings are a must.
Lyndoch Hill Retreat (08) 8524 4268
A fresh light atmosphere and food to match. Great views from the floor to ceiling glass walls make this a great place to relax on your tour around the Barossa. Open for lunch Tuesday to Sunday, for dinner Tuesday to Saturday
Nuriootpa Rd, Angaston (08) 8564 2488
Bookings are essential on the weekend, and for good reason. Proudly using local produce with a distinctly Asian twist, the chef is not afraid to switch things up a bit. Ask for the best wine matching as they build a menu with the wine in mind. Open for lunch 7 days and dinner Monday to Saturday
