    Soon as we turned up up we were greeted by the friendliest staff. We decided to sit around the fire pit outside and had a drink before we moved inside. Once seated the exceptional service continued along with the exceptional food. It was Friday night so “Nonnas table” was our dining option. Amazing! I work away so when briefly back in Adelaide I crave great local food, we got it! Thanks so much

    Fabulous food. Liked having no menu and just a ‘surprise’ for each course. Had to take some away as they really do feed you! Music set a lovely ambience in the restaurant, and staff are very friendly and helpful. Outside is just beautiful, so we sat awhile and enjoyed the view.

    Walking into the garden with beautiful music playing, greeted and served by the lovely Chelsea who guided us through a wonderful experience at Nonna’s table. Lovely atmosphere, beautiful decor, homely, professional team. We asked for a bigger gap until dessert as we were so full from eating the most tasteful food. Would definitely recommend anyone traveling. This is a little gem not to be missed. We have beautiful memories, thank you to all the team 😀

    This was a beautiful dining experience. Loved the attention to detail in the table setting. Fresh flowers and beautiful tablewares. Set menu was perfect as every course was generous and tasty. We asked to sit outside for dessert and this added to the chilled ambiance. Lovely staff who all wanted to connect but not be obtrusive. Highly recommend a visit. This was our second time but even more enjoyable as it was not as busy as Saturdays.

    Our table of 4 felt the Feed Me menu at $95 pp was great value. The food was outstanding. Their house made bread was superb ... as were the stuffed zucchini flowers on whipped pumpkin and feta... tender and delicious steak ... and my personal favourite - the lasagna. The staff were friendly attentive and helpful. We also enjoyed their wines. Cocktails were a little high priced with only few on offer. Overall would highly recommend this experience.

    Well, again, Down the Rabbit Hole at McLaren Vale for lunch has not disappointed!! “Feed me” lunch was above and beyond. Chef Nick Tadija deserves massive accolades for his genius and talent in the creation of a magnificent feast using local produce which is in season at the time. The wines and bubbles are next level! Our guests from Switzerland were astounded with this experience. Perfect in every way is all we can say! Thankyou!!

    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.)
