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.

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

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.

We ordered hot chips by the pool , one hour later and reasking they still did not turn up. We went back to the room and called reception to complain, 20 mins later they turned up just before we were going to dinner. At dinner I ordered a medium rare fillet steak I got a well done fillet and my wifes chicken was dry ,possibly from the chicken shop. The meal cost was high and the quality was low. The first question above How likely would you be to recommend to a friend. No stars is not allowed ,your survey is floored ,I would never recommend overcharged poor quality. If it would have let me there would not be any stars

For a 4 star rating restaurant was very disappointed, We were the first to arrive at 5:30 pm and was told the kitchen doesn't open until 6pm even though bookings are 5:30pm!!!! we got escorted to our table given menu's and left to our defences no description of the menu or specials , waited for 15 minutes for our water to be presented. At 6:10pm the maitre de came up and said he will check if the kitchen is open, even though other patron's had received meals. About 6:25pm he came for our order, we placed our orders and waited in anticipation. Waiting waiting waiting, I think everyone that came in after us had their meals, finally ours came out!!!!! one eye fillet and one scotch fillet, both were stone cold, i had tarragon butter on my steak and it didn't even melt? I think the chef put them aside to rest and completely forgot about them!! The maitre de had no table skills moving our cutlery with his hand on the blade and fork end!!! Once we were served our meals we had to top up our own glasses of wine [ everywhere we have been you get told off for pouring your wine] no waiting staff came near us. After our main's we wanted to order a cheese plate but no one came near us so we left. Upon leaving not asked if we enjoyed meal just given bill and told to sign here and room number, even though we weren't guest's. I just do not know how you survive with incompetent staff and chefs, if you were not corporation backed you would be dead in the water!!!!

Had Christmas Day dinner at the Cellar Kitchen - a little disappointed that there was only fixed-price buffet dinner, with no other menu choices, except for drinks. Food was quite good, eg. Oysters, smoked salmon, baked ham, but limited variety. Price was reasonable, considering it was Christmas day ! Staff were attentive, diligent and friendly. Views of the valley and hills were very nice, especially the sunset !
