    Unfortunately much has changed compared to our previous visit in the summer. The menu was shaved right down to a set 'feed me' menu - and let's be honest - it hasn't worked out. A very meagre serving of antipasto (5 x slices charcuterie and pickled veg), followed by a Ragu and then roasted chicken thighs & drumsticks doesn't represent great value - and we missed the very thing we came back for - the spread of beautiful, hearty dishes we experienced on the first visit. The staff tried, but seemed very stretched and just not capable of delivering a memorable experience - I suspect they were not from the Barossa as we couldn't even get a taxi ordered properly. It is a great shame, as we had high hopes - but this fell well short. I am trying to be objective - please take it in the manner intended.

    Amazing food quality, with great flavours. We loved the variety in the dishes that they served, and left feeling extremely satisfied and full! The lamb dish was tender yet crunchy, octopus was perfectly tender, and the sautéed veg with generous amount of nuts was crazy yummy I could eat the whole bowl on it’s own! Definitely will recommend to anyone and it’s now one of my fav places to dine in the Barossa!

    Our experience at Lou’s Place was phenomenal. Nicole and the team there were wonderful from start to finish and made our honeymoon visit to the region, and Lou’s Place for a nice lunch, one to remember. Nicole waited on us in such a vibrant and energised manner and we could not help but have a fun time. The wine was delicious the food was to die for but the service from Nicole is the reason we will 100% come back here when we visit again from WA. I could not fault her and the amazing team there in the restaurant. Thank you for making our experience at Lou Miranda Estate a memorable one. Thanks Nicole!!

    Generally we had a great dining experience but to be honest there is always room for improvement. The wine was good but probably not worth $80 a bottle. The service was ok but the girl serving us was a bit too chatty although very nice and we had to wait at times to be served. The food was great. All in all we had a terrific afternoon.

    Second time we have been and the first time we could choose our courses, but this time it was a set menu special to that day. We were a bit worried not being told the menu prior to the day but the food did not disappoint at all. Definitely going back again!

    We loved the European vibe, food, ambience & setting - & overlooking the vines that created the wine we drank was the icing on the cake (or should I say cannoli…). Cannot fault it, it made our Barossa experience 👍

    Staff were lovely and experience was nice. However it is a fully set menu so there is no choice, fortunately they were able to accommodate my no red meat requirements but it was a surprise not to at least have a choice from a couple of options.

    We had the pleasure of attending Lou’s place for the set antipasto menu on a warm Sunday afternoon. We chose to site outside on the lawn area. The service was faultless, the explanation of food served was perfect and the food was amazing. Thank you to the lovely staff that served us on that day. We will be back x Michelle and Matt

    Food was good quality, however not enough portion size for $60 pp. Waitress spilled half my beer, which I know accidents happen, but she did not offer to bring me a fresh beer, which I believe is rather rude. She semi wiped table with a napkin and had to ask her to wipe it properly, which see did after she put fresh plates down on a sticky table.! No one asked after first round of drinks for top ups, overall poor service from staff. Paid for my half spilled beer and food and will not return here, very overrated

    Food and ambiance was beautiful. Service let you down with disorganized staff and food/drinks taking a long time to come out. The waitress forgot to bring out our bill when we asked for it. Also I told the team I needed GF options which was great for the antipasto, entree and desert (I was given my own individual dish) however when the shared pork crackling and cos salad came out I was told that the salad was GF. So I didn’t get a substitute main dish. Just had to have a salad as my main course dish. So I found that disappointing.

    Beautiful venue and the service was good. The food, however, was surprisingly a huge let down. We visited on a Saturday so had to do the three course fixed menu for $60 a head. Portion sizes were small, which would be ok if the food was amazing, but it wasn’t. We left hungry and disappointed. I wouldn’t go back, particularly given the numerous other options in the Barossa at the same price point.

    It was a great day to sit outside and the setting was gorgeous. Each of the 4 courses were delicious but I didn’t have room for dessert which I’m still regretting. Our waitress was a big help when choosing drinks to pair with the food but it was a bit difficult catching one when needed. Overall a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

    We were seated outside on a beautiful day so really pleasant. When going inside I was thankful we could enjoy outside as noisey inside. The food was really delicious but really not enough quantity for $60. We were still hungry at the end. Service was exceptional and all very polite. Wine flight was really good.

    This was the 2nd time we've been and quite frankly would not have returned had it now been for receiving a gift voucher. I'm not a fan of the menu format. Everyone having to agree to have the same, or not even being given a choice is not ideal. Easy for the chefs I guess.
