Integral to a stay at The Louise is the enjoyment of casually elegant regional dining at acclaimed on-site restaurant Appellation.

Understated, informed service and intimate ambience complement a daily varying menu featuring locally sourced seasonal produce under the guidance of Executive Chef Mark McNamara. A monthly changing signature Tasting Menu is created to pair with a selection of distinctive and premium Barossa wines. Appellation’s extensive wine list presents the best of the Barossa, the rest of Australia and iconic wines of the world.

A passionate advocate for freshness, seasonality and regionality in food, Mark's menus are prepared daily, based on ingredients sourced from an extensive network of local suppliers. Mark's kitchen accepts only the best produce, fruits, meats, poultry and seafood. This is a kitchen with a mission that "fresh is not just best; it is the only reason to cook."

A private dining room is available for groups of 8 to 16 guests, and an intimate restaurant bar provides before and after-dinner drinks. During the warmer months, guests can peruse the evening's menu on the restaurant's terrace overlooking the surrounding Barossa Valley vineyards.

Appellation continues to be ranked in the nation's top 50 restaurants as listed in the Gourmet Traveller 2008 Restaurant Guide (with two stars and two goblets), and was awarded 'Best Wine List' at the 2007 Adelaide Food Awards; 'Best Regional Restaurant 2008' by the Restaurant & catering Association SA; and 'Wine List of the Year 2008' for South Australia by Fine Wine Partners and Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine.

Appellation is a compelling reason to visit the Barossa.


Why AB thinks Appellation is one of Adelaides Best:  Superior cuisine and service, make this regional dining experience well worth the drive.
