With a passion for real, fresh local ingredients, Ryan and his team are guided by the rhythms of the seasons…harvesting from their kitchen garden, baking their own breads, butchering and curing their own meats… and see wine and food as the most natural of partners. Executive Chef Ryan Edwards and his team are passionate advocates for freshness, seasonality and regionalism varying their menus nightly to take full advantage of the bountiful produce sourced from an extensive network of local suppliers.

We continue to evolve the dining experience embracing the trend toward greater choice and at Appellation we have also recognized the growing need to cater for specific food allergies by developing menus specifically tailored to individual requirements and that fully allow for truly memorable dining experiences.

Many restaurants require all diners at a table to opt for either a degustation menu or a la carte menu. Appellation’s approach is to combine the possibility of degustation and a la carte dining for each table… a new approach for regional dining in Australia.  Enjoy two ways to dine; a la carte dining or our signature Chef’s Tasting Menu. Each menu offers you the opportunity to enjoy the very finest of seasonal produce from our friends, neighbours, region and South Australia.

Guests staying at The Louise and wishing to dine at Appellation may reserve a table at the time of booking accommodation up to 18 months in advance.

Appellation at The Louise is designed for adults and caters for children 10 years and older, who will be accommodated on the same basis as adults.
