    Wonderful winery , Jason was outstanding so were the girls, the food was to die for, so well presented. We would definitely recommend Down the Rabbit Hole as the best in McLaren Vale SA. Cheers Jenny and Dexter

    The restaurant looked great, we were greeted by smiling staff. We had the Chef feed me menu. The only issue was that the food came out a bit quick, we would have liked more time between courses. They were very generous serves.

    We were very impressed with Chelsea our host. She made sure that we were in a quieter position in the restaurant as I had mentioned in our booking that we were older and some of us had hearing problems. Our corner seat was ideal. The service was excellent and we loved the food. It was a very hot day but we were completely comfortable in our spot inside! I would recomment DTRH very highly.

    Our dining experience at Down the Rabbit Hole was everything we had expected and hoped for. The service and atmosphere was very pleasant and noise level was low, despite the restaurant being almost full. The food was amazing and gave us the opportunity to try new food experiences - all delicious. Would thoroughly recommended it to all age groups (we are seniors but most of the other patrons were much younger; all appeared to enjoy their visit.)

    Celebrated my birthday with friends here, we had the Feed Me option in the restaurant. The space is light-filled and very pretty, a photographer’s delight. The food was exquisite, you could see the love and care that had gone into every single dish. The service was perfect, couldn’t fault it. We’ll be back!

    Amazing tasty sensations of every dish that was bought out. Ingredients were well explained and the service was very good but not pretentious or ott. Just lovely staff who are passionate about what they do. Not to mention the Chef/s who are outstanding. I am a bit of a foodie but would never be able to recreate dishes like that. The flavours were all just a right mix of sweet and savoury I would think a Master Chef is behind that. Just delicious.

    The feed me menu was excellent, imaginative and tasty. The only negative was that the veal was too rare for me. Best if the waiter were to ask cooking preferences when it comes to meat. Other than that everytjhing was great.

    We visited with friends to have lunch and were blown away! Love, love, loved the place. The food was amazing, every bite transformed you to another place! Such a fun, casual yet gorgeous venue and a MUST visit. My only slight negative was the food was brought out a little fast for us but that will not stop us going back! Well done team.

    The food itself was faultless - secret menu so I won’t disclose what was on it but they were happy to take into account my preference of not too spicy. However, they brought the food out in too quick succession, often bringing the next dish out before we had finished the previous one. The table was little so it wasn’t expected that we hold onto the earlier dishes and go at our own pace because we couldn’t fit all the food on the table. We had a 2pm booking and by 2:40pm, we had received all entrees, the main and the sides. We expressed surprise and would have appeared flustered the first time this happened, but we noted that it was too quick when the main arrived and we were only halfway through the previous course. Not sure if they were trying to rush us because we had the later lunch booking and maybe the chefs finish up for the day at 3pm, but we paid $95 each plus drinks just like everyone else, so expect the same experience as everyone else! We had a nice break before dessert (which was also delicious) but this was probably because it had been prepared earlier in the day. Unfortunately, this ruined the experience a little despite the food being absolutely delicious because the main had cooled down a bit by the time we were ready to eat it, and we filled up more from having to eat everything so quickly, meaning we were too full to appreciate the later dishes as much. The wait staff were really friendly and helpful.

    The ambience and setting is lovely. Service friendly and prompt. The first four courses were absolutely delicious and made the visit. The last course of dessert was disappointing as the icing on the cake was so overpowering with the lemon liqueur that you couldn’t taste anything else.
