About The Cellar Kitchen
The Cellar Kitchen in the resort's brand new restaurant that opened in 2016.
Our restaurant and partnership with Saskia Beer brings the Barossa directly to your table. Working with small local farmers and growers we create seasonal menus that reflect the unique terrois of the Barossa and showcase its extraordinary produce.
The menu is designed to showcase the freshest seasonal produce with an approach that is more natural and an extension of Saskia’s philosophy of paddock to plate.
We know exactly where, and how, our produce was farmed and raised. We work with, and support, local producers to bring distinctly different tastes and flavours to your table. Saskia’s connection to local farmers and her long immersion in the tableau of food brings something very special to our restaurant.
The creation and enjoyment of good food is a love that is shared by great chefs, providores, suppliers, farmers, growers and those that dine at their tables.
The service we received was well below expectations, with wrong meals being delivered, main course being served whilst entree plates still on the table and then being asked by staff to move them.....the overall service received from the Restaurant and Novotel was unfortunately less than satisfactory and will not return or recommend.
Food was overpriced and my chicken was dry an way over cooked. Portion sizes are on the small side
Great place for a relaxing evening with a beautiful view.
I am a bit split on how i enjoyed Dinner. While the service and restaurant were all fantastic, my dish itself was a bit lacking. Tasted great, however the Pork Belly was not cooked very well. There was still huge amounts of solid fat in it which needed to be rendered off and the skin/crackling was burnt but sticky so not very enjoyable. I did clean the plate though apart from the fat i cut out =) My wife's comment on her dish was "It's fine", but this did improve by the time we finished and she enjoyed it. I expected better for the level they are aiming for.
The view and atmosphere were great, the staff were very friendly, however there were some negatives. My partner and I ordered steak, mine medium, his medium rare, both were well done. When the waitress came to ask how our meals were we told her and she offered to have some recooked, however we were already 2/3 of the way through out meal so there was no point. The service was very slow regarding drinks, I had finished my wine and waited 20 minutes before I finally had to call someone over to ask for another.
A very flavoursome meal and attentive but not overbearing service. Prices on the higher side but not unusually so for a resort style establishment
Very pleasant. Food above average. A little overpriced.
Lack of attention to detail for both food and service. As an example, the gnocchi tasted like left over potato salad that had been heated up on a public barbeque while they forgot to bring my partner a steak knife, left to fetch one, then forgot and left him waiting while his dinner went cold! Will not return. Overpriced food eaten in what would have been a great atmosphere, thanks to the view, had it not been ruined by the constant crying and shouting of children. The only thing that justified the price was the view.
Fabulous food. Good, friendly staff and of course such a great location.
Food was good and the view was superb. Noise from young children was a little disturbing (especially as it was after 8pm.)
Had a wonderful dinner the food was exceptional. The banana caramel tart was delicious. We then had the Manager give us the wrong bill. We paid it only to be called on our way home to be told oops sorry give us more money. I was then expected to either drive back and pay or pay over the phone. Very unprofessional and sloppy.
So much more could have been done with the dining space but it was a bit like a canteen/school dining room. The waitress got the children’s order totally wrong and didn’t explain the cheese and charcuterie platters to us so we were confused when only one of each arrived. The staff were very friendly and apologetic but it wasn’t the type of meal we were expecting.
The setting was stunning, the staff professional and personal and the food delicious!
Service was great
Despite being relatively unoccupied the noise was very off-putting- mainly echo due to design of roof & walls. Some sound baffles from the roof would hugely improve the atmosphere.
The food was absolutely fantastic, the view was amazing and we were lucky enough to be there on the same night as someone's Christmas party so we were treated to DJ and entertainment too. We will definitely be back!
The food and produce is amazing and the service fantastic. The only negative was our steaks were overcooked which was a little disappointing given the price of the meal.
Playlist didn’t seem appropriate for dinner environment. Also quality of sound was very poor. This detracted from the dining experience at dinner. The view from the windows is exceptional but with only a few diners the large space feels rather cavernous once it’s dark and you can’t see the view.
Both the quality of food and service was of a high standard The staff were friendly and very helpful The dining experience was further enhanced by the view over the surrounding areas
I have food intolerances so I customised my order, however I received the incorrect thing. I didn't want to make a fuss, but the second waiter who served us, Bonita, went out of her way to fix it. She gave my husband and I a map of the Barossa Valley to save us a trip to the visitor information centre, and even spent time with us to talk us through it, marking out the main attractions and helping us plan out our trip. When we returned another day, she remembered us. She is a real credit to your organisation.
Slow to receive meal. Pizza was burnt Had to send main meal back did get a credit Asked for medium to rare steak was over done on the second main meal not happy and very over priced for the what I received.
This was our first visit and we were very impressed. The food was fantastic the sour dough was amazing. The only thing i thought was missing was some simple entree like dips and pita bread or something like that. I though it was too complicated and some simple options would cater to more simple guests.
Quel dommage le restaurant est bien situé avec une belle vue, les plats sont globalement bons, mais il est extrement bruyant. A noter que l'hôtel ne disposant pas de bar ou prendre un verre après dîner cela se fait dans une partie du restaurant ce qui rajoute du bruit au bruit..Par ailleurs il serait agréable de pouvoir déjeuner sur la terrasse, nous y étions à une période où la température le permettait
I am vegan and it was quite heartwarming to know the chef was happy to veganise my meal! Also loved the red wine suggested to me by the guy behind the bar!
Very Clean rooms, staff very friendly, had a wonderful stay. Will come again.
