Are you visiting the Barossa and wondering where you should book for dinner? Here are 3 top spots for dinner in the Barossa, with a little hint about what’s great from the menu at each…


Vintners is an Ashmead family favourite. With outdoor dining for the summer and a fireplace crackling in the winter, we love what Peter and Rami bring to the Barossa dining scene.

The house bread with caramelised onion butter and black salt is something you should really try.

Bec finds it hard to resist the fish of the day and says you must have the fries (they are famous amongst locals). Bec also shares that the espresso martinis are very, very good.

Jules loves the kingfish crudo (pictured below) and would order it alongside a glass of Pinot Gris.

There is an extensive wine and beverage list, but you can also BYO wine (which we love).

Find Vintners between Nuriootpa and Angaston (only a short drive from our cellar door). They are open for lunch 7 days, and dinner Monday – Saturday, 6-9pm.


Otherness Wine Bar, with Grant Dickson at the helm, is a bright space offering local wines and food by Chef Sam Smith (formerly of Fino).

Current menu favs include the grilled figs (it is fig season after all) and the local Hutton Vale lamb ribs.

Bec’s tip – definitely try Breaking Bread’s bread and you’ll find this a great spot to enjoy a glass of our Pinot Gris!

Otherness is in the main street of Angaston and is open for dinner Thursday – Saturday.


Situated alongside Appellation at The Louise, this recently refurbished Barossa restaurant has a beautiful view at sunset. The menu is more casual in its approach to dinner, with burgers a feature, but the share plates are equally delicious. A great wine list is on offer, however a cocktail is the way to go if you enjoy cocktails.

Jess, our Digital Marketing Manager, had dinner at Contour in January and highly recommends the chickpeas as a moorish starter, then a burger and chips (she enjoyed a vego burger that had a crumbed chilli as the feature), and thinks you should definitely save room for the donut dessert!!

Contour is on Seppeltsfield Road and is open for dinner Thursday – Monday from 5pm.


There are so many fabulous dining options in the Barossa, these are just a few we’ve shared today, so for all the information on where to eat in the Barossa visit
