McLaren Vale Restaurants
We could call it our Top 10 McLaren Vale restaurants but that's not what this is all about. For one, there are a lot more than 10 restaurants listed here.
And that is simply because we are truly spoilt in McLaren Vale for choice with plenty of amazing restaurants for lunch, but finding a great place for dinner (especially mid-week) in McLaren Vale can be a bit of a challenge. That's why we have consolidated our suggestions here for you, covering a broad section from fine dining to just having a casual lunch or dinner.
First page gives you the essentials, from type of cuisine, price range and the all important opening hours to a little teaser on our thoughts of the meals we have enjoyed there - click through and you will get to our complete review of the restaurant and their food.
Good news is that with Covid-19 restrictions continued to being eased, most of our McLaren Vale Restaurants are open again, but restrictions still apply and many do have 2 fixed seating times only. We have updated our listings below with current opening hours (as of 23 June) and the price range also reflect their new menus. Calling ahead to book is essential for all.
