Meet the Chef

It was in Norway at Michelin Star restaurant Terje Oro where Fabian Lehmann truly began to hone his technique and found the space to truly hero the ingredients. In Australia, Fabian worked on Hamilton Island before joining Maxwell Restaurant to carve his best expression of McLaren Vale, the Fleurieu and South Australian ingredients. Chefs suggestion the Dining Room menu – 6 course.

    Started off with an informative wine tasting session then ventured on the deck for the 'feed me' lunch. Such amazing and different food that we would have never chosen ourselves. Finished off with a mead tasting which was sensational. The staff were so welcoming. Cant wait to return.

    The food is much better than what we can expect. Full of surprises and creativity. With the matching wine, it is the best lunch I have in South Australia.

    Sharing the plates is great as you get to taste a wide variety of dishes. All dishes were inventive, presented superbly and left you wanting more.

    Food was cooked on par especially the salmon and combinations of flavours of the dishes really impressed my foodie friends. Service was also really friendly and not pompous like other fine dining experiences.

    A beautiful dining room with a contemporary yet, cosy feeling. The weather was absolutely horrendous but we felt so warm and protected inside. Beautiful wines and wonderful attentive service. We were treated to the feed me menu and it was very good, and just the right amount of food as well. The food is very inventive without being pretentious. Highly recommended!

    Service was great and people were knowledgeable about their products, however there wasn’t a huge selection on the menu for people who don’t eat seafood.

    We had a wonderful lunch in the restaurant. We chose the $80 4 course feed us option but it was much more with additional tastings and snacks. It was a very creative meal with beautiful flavours and we spent about 4 hours at the restaurant. It has a lovely view over vineyards and we are planning on trying the casual eating area next with a group.

    We returned here for my birthday as the previous occasion was so good we decided to return, and was definitely not let down. Our friends also enjoyed.

    Lunch was tasty but the tiny serves were a big disappointment! I wouldn’t recommend anyone to come for lunch unless they’re after a nice wine in a cosy atmosphere with a snack.
