A few snippets from our latest reviews:

“Ideally situated for touring the Barossa vineyards, The Louise stands amid beautifully landscaped grounds that overlook neat rows of vines…Our suite was both luxurious and exceptionally well-conceived. Appellation is one of the most highly rated restaurants in Australia…we enjoyed an excellent meal.” 93 points rating Andrew Harper’s Hideaway Report, Grand Award Winner January 2012

“At the core of this fine dining experience is (the) sense of showcasing the produce, from Gulf garfish to Valley-caught pigeon and hare to locally nurtured lamb. It is celebrated better than ever with a sensitive and creative wine service that places its close ties with neighbouring artisans on the same level as the world’s great producers. Appellation is a most worthy ambassador for all SA’s regions.” Tony Love, The Advertiser 2011 Adelaide Food Awards

“Barossa luxury hits a high point at The Louise. The on-site fine diner Appellation … celebrates local produce and specialises in menus created to match outstanding Barossa wines.” Dream Destinations, Brisbane Times April 2011

“…the top of the tree is Appellation at The Louise, a seriously good exploration of the best in local produce backed up by the region’s best wine list.” Nick Ryan, Australian Traveller Magazine July 2010

“Indulge your inner gourmand at The Louise, the Barossa’s brightest star. Concern for guest satisfaction and food-and-drink passion have informed every decision at this South Australian retreat: privacy is paramount, room facilities are state of the art, and the restaurant is truly outstanding.”
World’s Top 10 Hotels to Pop That Question, Emirates Business,  April 2010

“This restaurant has nailed it. Appellation works with the consumer to facilitate a gastronomic experience with style. The enthusiasm of the staff in presenting their local and fresh creations infuses every offering with delightful expectation. It is no wonder this restaurant is making a name for itself.”
Mystery Diner, Hospitality Magazine Nov 2009

“The Louise is where the really discerning ones end up, a bastion of urban slickness in a profoundly rustic region, with 15 marvellous modern suites and an almost monastic sense of reverence when conversation moves wine-ward.”
MM Smith December 2009
