Maxwell Restaurant

Restaurant and Cafe

Some say McLaren Vale offers the best regional dining in Australia. But few know a part of that reputation is Maxwell-made. In 1969, Mark’s father contributed to the region’s first notable eatery. And when Mark Maxwell built this winery, it was one of the few with its own restaurant.

Maxwell Restaurant’s menu has always championed fresh, seasonal produce from local suppliers. Although, their brilliant Head Chef, Fabian Lehmann, is far from local. With a stellar career forged in the Michelin-starred restaurants of Europe, his exquisite plates are now the stuff of Instagram legend.

Their award-winning restaurant is open for lunch Friday, Saturday & Sunday.
