The Restaurant


Some say McLaren Vale offers the best regional dining in Australia. But few know a part of that reputation is Maxwell-made. In 1969, Mark's father contributed to the region’s first notable eatery. And when Mark Maxwell built this winery, it was one of the few with its own restaurant. Our menu has always championed fresh, seasonal produce from local suppliers. Although, our brilliant Head Chef, Fabian Lehmann, is far from local. With a stellar career forged in the Michelin-starred restaurants of Europe, his exquisite multi-course tasting menu is a truly memorable dining experience.



National Food, Wine and Travel writer David Sly says McLaren Vale is:

"The best regional dining destination in the country" 

Maxwell Fine Dining 

Our award-winning restaurant is open for lunch Friday, Saturday & Sunday with sittings from 12 noon and dinner service from 6:30pm on Saturday evening. We exclusively offer a  multi-course tasting menu priced at $145 per person. We do not offer an à la carte menu or a children's menu. Bookings are recommended.

A hidden gem in McLaren Vale, the restaurant at Maxwell is a must-do when visiting the region. Our restaurant offers a memorable culinary experience promoting seasonal produce from local suppliers. Every dish is carefully crafted and presented, while views of the winery, vineyards and the Fleurieu Peninsula lay just through the window. Chef Fabian Lehmann and the restaurant team place an emphasis on the high-quality produce that South Australia offers in abundance.


"Maxwell's degustation is a wondrous journey of flavour, texture and technique"
