Looking for a quick escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, but only have a weekend to spare? Head to the Barossa Valley for a short trip. It’s the perfect mix of food, wine and activities, and it’s just an hour from Adelaide.
Put your trust in The Eatery
You’ve driven in from Adelaide, it’s almost lunchtime, and your stomach is beginning to grumble.
Give in to your belly and begin your time in the Barossa at Maggie Beer’s iconic Farm Shop in Nuriootpa. If you really want to take your tastebuds on an adventure, head next door to The Eatery, run by Maggie Beer’s daughter Elli.
Here, you’ll find a restaurant that puts an emphasis on simple, seasonal food in a relaxed environment. In fact, Elli and chef Tim Bourke have taken seasonal to the next level, with the menu changing daily to include the freshest produce sourced locally.
Quick tip – choose the ‘trust us’ menu and let the kitchen take you on a culinary journey with surprises around every corner. It’s reasonably priced and will let you try a range of dishes.
Although the Eatery’s fare changes daily, one thing that never sways is the way the flavour combinations, like the caramelised jersey milk and verjuice dessert, which makes you hum with pleasure at every bite.
