Couldn’t have been a better recommendation from a friend. Knowledgeable and friendly service in a fantastic intimate setting. Loved everything about it. Non-descriptive menu items making it a pleasant and unexpected surprise each course. Can’t wait to return!

Fantastic knowledge of wine and food- best porj I have ever had- fabulous sevice, friendly and attentive
It was a quiet peaceful setting with decor to match perfectly. We had the set menu with matching wines and were not disappointed. Dishes were delicious and good serving as were the matching wines. Made for a romantic long lunch.
Sensational, as always. Would have to be the best eating experience in the McLaren Vale district.
As usual, beautifully executed and presented food. Service is always warm and friendly. A place we return to on special occasions.
Could not fault any aspect of our meal. As locals, this is a fave spot and it did not disappoint this time, as we had one of the best meals yet. For mains, other half insisted on choosing his favourite goat dish again, I chose fish which was imaginatively prepared and beautifully presented. Little touches like the amuse bouche, fresh bread and palate cleansers were perfect.
The food the service is amazing!! One of the best dining experiences I have ever had. Would highly recommend.
Food was amazing, generous serves and delicious. Extras like house made bread, butter and truffles were a treat. Would highly recommend for special occasion.
The food was delicious and excellent service
Great place to take interstate visitors or anyone for a special occasion. The food and service are always great, you’ll be offered interesting local wines, and you can take a pleasant drive through the hills to get there. (And then zip home on the freeway)
Awesome restaurant, awesome food, awesome service. Highly recommended!!!
The food was beautifully presented and equally delicious. Lots of care and complexity in each dish. The caramelised pork belly entre, beef and sweetbreads main, apple and miso caramel dessert were outstanding. The service was impeccable.
Beautiful food, great environment and knowledgeable friendly staff.
104 Ingoldby Rd, 5171, McLaren Flat, Australia
Folks, this isn’t some hipster name – The Currant Shed at McLaren Flat was literally a shed to dry currants, which was big business back in its day. As currants fell out of favour, the place was left to ruin until the 1970s when the transformation began, turning it into the restaurant and vineyard you see today.
With a commitment to pairing fresh produce with local wines, the menu reads like an almanac of considered, and slightly eclectic, food combinations. ‘Kingfish – fennel – lime’, the freshness almost jumps off the page. ‘peri peri – flathead – cauliflower – walnut’, how have you not had those together before? Luckily, you’re about to! Wherever possible, ingredients are sourced from close by, including their own garden.
The team at The Currant Shed pride themselves on not only eating local, but drinking local too so you can look forward to an impressive South Australian wine list.
