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.
It felt a bit like a cafeteria, but where we sat by the windows was more intimate. The food quality was excellent, unfortunately the veg side dish was late out, we had to ask for it and were halfway through our main course.
We had dinner here 2 years ago and thoroughly enjoyed the homestyle meals we had. On visiting the Barossa again we were excited to come back here, this time for lunch. We were extremely disappointed with the food, I’m not sure if it was because we had the limited lunch menu? My sisters Caesar salad was soggy (she said the lettuce was the best part!). I had the BLT which was ok, but I definitely wouldn’t come back for another one. Don’t think we’d bother dining here again when we come back to the Barossa next time...
The choice in menu was great. It was beautifully presented and tasted great too! The service staff were very attentive. The only negative is that the room was rather cold in the evening. Was much better once the air conditioning was turned off.
Very enjoyable and tasty.
We are Accor members. We choose to dine there for dinner and lunch. Was terrific on both occasions.
Menu list is a bit narrow and focussed on Specialities. We would appriciate a broader choice.
With the exception of the lady called Belinda. Service was poor. I would like to say I’m not upset about having a bottle of wine dropped on me. Accidents happen. However. The replacement bottle of wine was cheaper than the one dropped on me. Poor form. I feel like the menu, although reasonably priced was very unimaginative. I can go to my local pub for a burger or fish and chips or a club sandwich. It also took nearly an hour and a half for the food to come in what was mostly an empty restaurant. I could see the service light from the kitchen on for 10 minutes before someone collected our meals. This resulted in them being warm at best when they arrived. We then ordered flat whites which were basically cappuccinos. Overall it was quite poor. I will say a big thanks to Belinda who took my wine soaked t shirt to housekeeping and got it laundered and pressed for me while getting me a spare t shirt to wear for the day. She was great However I really could not recommend you to anybody that I like.
Food was amazing!!! Will be back for sure.
Food was amazing, staff were very accommodating, location is excellent.
the food was all great the only problem was the coffee machine was terrible at breakfast to small I cup only and very slow and not hot
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.
