A guide to the best places to eat in the Barossa

by Jess Ruciack and Jodhi Thoms

We’re often asked for recommendations on where to eat in the Barossa. We are lucky, in that we are spoilt for choice in our region. The Barossa has a proud food culture spanning generations, and a history of sharing generous meals with great company (and great wine of course!)

From hatted award-winners to casual dining, with a celebration of local produce and everything from pizza to moorish Asian flavours, the Barossa has so many great dining options. There are many options for eating lunch in the Barossa, and some great restaurants for dinner. Here’s our quick guide, by town, of the best places to eat in the Barossa:
