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.
Once again a delightful meal with friendly service. As an Accor member receiving 50% food discount this is a very affordable night of elegant dining. As a Birthday treat we were offered an amazing dessert tasting platter and this exemplifies the wonderful way members are rewarded for their loyalty. This Resort is our favourite "getaway" destination and the on-site Cellar Kitchen is a big part of that attraction - reliable, it never fails to please. keep up the great work Mark
The first two starters ordered were not available. The explanation given by the waitress was that the menu was changing the next day! This is not good enough for this caliber of restaurant!
A great place to dine. the staff are very friendly and always helpful. The food is always great.
We really enjoyed our time which celebrated Mum's 80th birthday. Appreciated being separate from large group having buffet lunch. View was stunning, food was lovely and Sam (who looked after us) was very thoughtful and attentive. Many thanks, we would love to come back next time we are in Adelaide :)
We are very pleased that you have returned to an a la carte menu. we were regular diner's but haven't been coming due to the change of menu. We look forward to many more enjoyable nights dining with you.
I had a beautiful dinner and then brunch at the Cellar Kitchen. Both meals were delicious. The gnocchi mushroom is probably up there in my top 10 meals ever consumed. The staff were so friendly and efficient. I can't wait to come back, and in the meantime have already encouraged some family members to attend when they are in Barossa in a few weeks time. Thanks for a lovely weekend!
The service we received on Sunday was pretty poor to say the least which is a shame as the food and atmosphere were lovely.
Quality food proportionally priced
We visited the Cellar kitchen for my husband's birthday over the weekend. Our host Belinda was amazing, she made our night very special and was very attentive to see that all our needs were well looked after. She took the time to get to know our family and made the children feel very included and special. We had a fantastic and enjoyable night, the food was brilliant and staff were very accommodating and really looked after us. We will certainly be back in the future Thank you
We loved the stay in Novotel, nice room and very good food. The waitress is so nice to us, we had a wonderful night. The food was delicious, my son love it very much. Hope we can travel barrosa again, definitely will recommend my friends stay in Novotel.
Excellent service and the meals are top notch we will be back again
The Gnocchi was the best I've ever had. Beautiful.
Honestly, after our entree came out and it was 2 pieces of the most plain/bland bread on a plate with a circle of butter (somehow also bland) on the side there was no saving this experience. The main meals were very tasty and great quality however the portion size was so so small even though we chose the "bigger" options. How you are meant to share these as the menu suggests is beyond me and the price per "bigger" meal was a joke, $40 for half a chicken or three pieces of pork belly is a joke. So unfortunately a night where I was hoping to leave well satisfied was cut short before dessert because I couldnt wait to leave. The wattress attempted to make things better by taking the side of chips (that was more filling than the main) and the plain bread with butter of the bill however two tiny mains and 2 alcoholic drinks still came to over $100..... To make things worse we are currently planning our wedding at this venue however we may have to rethink this. All in all; awful experience.
Food was really nice and was cooked to perfection.
Brilliant place to dine
We have always enjoyed dining in Cellar Kitchen. This time was no exception. The service was great, the selection of Gin was good. We absolutely loved the Winter Menu, we ordered the Gnocchi, and it was to die for. Will definitely come back again.
Wonderfully fresh food prepared and served beautifully. A lovely dining experience
The restaurant was very pretty and cosy with the fire. However, the lamb and gnocchi needed some sort of sauce to go with them as they were a bit dry and bland! Lovely staff though, just a little room for improvement
We ate two meals here Dinner and breakfast. After attending a book signing at the Novatel we figured we'd eat dinner at the restaurant seeing it boasts fresh local food. Sure it might have been fresh when they cooked it but I'm pretty sure that wasn't immediately before they served it to us. We ordered crackling with cumin and yoghurt $9 I was expecting hot fresh crackling so when five pieces of what looked like crackling you'd buy from stores showed up I was a little disappointed. More so when it was stale. The cumin and yoghurt were plentiful and tasty and made the stale store-bought crackling edible, if still disappointing. We chalked this up to some sort of misunderstanding of the menu. I mean it said crackling, it's not their fault that we thought fresh crackling just because the restaurant boasts of the freshest seasonal products and paddock to plate philosophy right? We thought the three 'main' dishes and two 'sides' we'd ordered as part of the tasting menu would all arrive at once. That wasn't the case, they came out over a half hour period. First was the fried chicken 5 pieces $23, it had clearly been fully cooked at some point earlier to being reheated and served to us. The reheating process had made it dry. But it was served with a single lemon wedge and a tarragon aioli which helped mask the dryness. Luckily one of the sides Brocolli with almonds $10 was served swimming in a puddle of water so brought a bit of balance. Both items were cold, I understand it was a chilly night but warming a plate to keep food warm until it gets to the table isn't too much to ask for the prices they're charging. Next came the dry aged beef $26. It was overcooked and cool but still tasty and tender. It did seem as though it might have been cooked to medium rare at some point earlier and reheated prior to serving to us. I mean it'd explain the temp when it was served to us. Our second side fries $10 came out with the beef. They were hot and fresh and I 100% believe that someone out the back actually cooked them just for us. They could have done with a little extra celery salt but I probably wouldn't have tasted the loss if I dunked them all in the aioli which was also delicious. Our third main Pork Belly with lentils and citrus $24 was also served hot. Two small pieces of pork belly that had also been cooked earlier to get this tender then reheated on a grill so the outside was crispy, I guess pork takes to reheating better than beef. It just proved that it was possible for hot food to reach us which was just frustrating. I don't believe there's a chef in the kitchen here, no chef would let that food through the pass. Maybe the chef comes every couple of days and makes the food to be reheated by a cook at mealtime. Honestly, after dinner, we only had breakfast here because we figured any idiot could manage breakfast. And we were pretty much right. Most things on the buffet were pretty good, poached eggs could have been a little softer but that's just me. I did make the mistake of ordering a custom omelet. I was a bit surprised when the waitress walked off without asking what I wanted on it and not surprised when she showed back up to get that critical information. What I got was closer to a frittata than an omelet, no fold, no softness at all. It also had several ingredients I didn't ask for including mushrooms which gave me hives for the rest of the morning until the antihistamines kicked in. I stopped eating as soon as I saw them but that was far to late. Banana bread was excellent though if you can nab a slice. The fruit was a little old looking so I didn't grab any. The juice was tasty and plentiful. I expect better from Accor. Great views are not enough. if you want to charge four-star prices then you'd better up your game significantly.
Friendly staff. Food was Ok but not worthy of the prices in my view Wine list was good
Really fabulous place. A must, if you want a nice relaxing vacation.
As an Accor member we did get discount on our meals, but otherwise quite pricey. Completely worth it though!
Good food and value.
The new menu concept is great. The portion sizes are good and allows diners to select a few things to share from the menu. We were a little disappointed that our drinks were forgotten.
