If you are ever in the Barossa valley, I highly recommend you stop by Artisans of Barossa to try some unique boutique wines on offer here, but also to enjoy a great meal.
Perfect for a lunch time snack or feast depending on how hungry you all, the restaurant overlooks the vineyards and is a picturesque setting for a relaxing afternoon. It's also quite a hit with the locals so be warned that it may get busy.
Schwarz wine co. Rose - $10.00 - we started off with a light rose. With a hint of strawberry, this was a great drink to begin the meal.
Crispy fried Barossa Farm free range chicken with harissa mayonnaise $26.00 - I love it when restaurants use the local fresh produce it their dishes and this is exactly what they do here. By using such fresh ingredients, there isn't much need for additional flavours as the natural flavours themselves are enough. Here the chicken was just lightly coated in a crispy batter, lightly salted and the meat moist and tender. The harissa mayo providing an additional kick if you like.
Fig and stout braised beef empanadas with relish -$23.00 - three soft pastry shells baked to a golden brown hiding inside slow cooked beef that was melt in your mouth. Yum.
Salted caramel sundae with toffee popcorn -$11.00 - such an awesome awesome dessert. Rich but not too rich with the popcorn providing that perfect accompanying texture. Pretty much every single table I saw was eating at least one of these babies.
