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.
Brittney was excellent in her table service. Really looked after us. Wine list is great too!
The food was fantastic! We couldn’t fault any of the 7 dishes we had between us. Friendly service and the meals arrived to our table quickly
Great food and wonderful service.
Absolutely amazing. Much larger portions than expected. Would definitely go back again
Lovely and clean hotel, great service and friendly staff. We had a relax weekend get away.
We had the Squid entree which had nice flavours but was chewy and over cooked. The chicken was on a bed of cold ancient grains and my husband asked for a medium steak that came out rare. Pie was nice but the crust was a little over cooked and would have preferred if they bothered to heat it up all the way.
Ordered sirloin, was like a piece of shoe leather, tough as old boots. Can’t speak for the other mains. Spoilt the evening!
Awesome people and food 🙂
Breakfast staff - what a melee! Lots of staff but no greeting and after seating ourselves we were told we were in the ‘wrong seat’ although there was no reserved signs. Went to the bar to order coffee only to be ignored by FIVE staff members. Then when checking out no one knew we had breakfast and weren’t going to charge us, I spoke up and paid for everything we had.
There should be more variety on menu when we receive our meals i was given the wrong one where the waiter should have asked who's was who
Food and venue was amazing. Wine list expensive but nice.
Steak was gristly and tough. Food was expensive for the standard.
Steak was burnt and dessrt was still frozen
Superb evening. Great welcome, even better food and drink. Just ones star deducted for quite a cold room.
Our experience unfortunately was very underwhelming. On our recent stay was hoping the convenience of walking to your dinner and then easily back to the room would be a nice easy night out. We arrived at the restaurant about 7pm and the restaurant was about half full. Place was super cold which immediately affected how this was going to go. Deb was lovely and saw us to our table announcing that Tori would be hosting us tonight and gave us menus. Table was not set and totally empty at this point. About 20 minutes passed with no Tori so Deb popped back over seeing if we were ready to order, no mention of Tori or apologies. We ordered 2 cocktails (sparking wine with a mixer so super easy) along with entrees and mains each. About 20 minutes pass and our entrees arrive but alas we don't have anything to enjoy these with. The waitress then heads to grab cutlery and napkins. About 5 minutes later our drinks finally arrive with a small apology and that the next round was on us. They had also been made incorrectly despite the simplicity of these. Showed that staff have had very limited training on the menu (didn't know what it was either when I ordered). After entrees the table is cleared then continuing the issue when our mains arrive...no cutlery again. We finish our meals which were ok, but the pasta you could tell had been sitting for some time under the heat lamp as it was sticking together in globs. We thus called it a night not waiting to seeing if we would be asked for dessert. I headed over to the counter to sort our bill but after waiting 5 minutes or so with no staff decided to just leave and deal with it another day. All in all a very disappointing experience. I lived in the Barossa for some time and had not heard great things in the past but wanted to see for myself. As a brand the Novotel has a great name and brand but this restaurant really needs to lift its game to ensure the experience of local, interstate and overseas guests is exceptional to keep them coming back and talk great things about the Barossa.
Food was poor, salad served with no dressing, soggy chips & meat was grisly. Wine and food overpriced. Requested an affogato for dessert but unavailable as the kitchen had run out of vanilla ice cream! Very disappointing overall..
I feel that the attention to detail was not present. We had no napkins and had to ask for these after our meals had been served. We had a entree to share and it was just placed in the middle of the table without asking if we wanted side plates to eat our own portion meal. I ordered a glass of coke and it took about 10 minutes to get to my table. There was hardly anyone in the restaurant due to restrictions still in place. I felt the price was too much for the level of service we received for “fine dining”. I have to say, I felt like a nice steak but I was told there is no steak as the menu is based on left over food from pre COVID restrictions. I have in the past had such great experiences at the Novotel and the restaurant but I’m afraid I was disappointed this time.
The food is good the service fantastic but the wines are overpriced. For example Rockford $35 at winery for $85 and $72 for around $180 in restaurant Langmeil $27 at winery for $75. You expect a bit higher at a restaurant but the same wines are a lot cheaper dining in Adelaide CBD; if wine list more realistic 5-star
Great place to stay we loved everything!
The food was really great, amazing and fresh ingredients, the only issue was the fact that we had to wait over 35 mins for the dessert and coffee as the waiter hasn’t put the order in so we had to leave before we could enjoy the dessert and coffee otherwise it was a good experience.
A nice meal with a reasonable selection. Thought it was a little expensive but overall the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Even got a free cocktail for my Birthday celebration.
Had dinner here two nights in a row as staying in the resort. The food was really very very good . There were 5 in our party and we ended up trying most of the entrees and mains- no misses at all. Terrific service / though a little slow on the Saturday night when restaurants very busy, Wine list excellent Yes we will be back
Staff and service were fantastic. Loved our stay and dining with you
Would have been nice to have more vegan and vegetarian options, but other than that, everything was really good.
