An unusual feature at The Haus Bar
Such a beautiful late autumn day, we decided to go to Hahndorf, do some shopping, sight seeing and stop for lunch at the Haus Cafe-Bar-Kitchen.
From their lunch specials menu, we chose a "Chicken Focaccia". Lightly toasted olive focaccia topped with grilled chicken breast, lettuce and Caesar dressing served with Haus fries. With a glass of 13' Sidewood Sauvignon Blanc. Also "Haus Crumbed Prawns" Freshly Cajun spiced crumb prawns served with mandarin Asian herbs salad
The Haus Cafe Bar Restaurant is spacious, but because it is divided into very separate zones, is not cavernous. Very European in style, it has vaulted timber ceilings, large beams and huge linen light shades hung in groups, There is an assortment of table groupings throughout. Exposed brick walls are stencilled with murals depicting Hahndorf's historical German past. One space can be completely closed off for private functions, and outside is a delightful alfresco area overlooking Hahndorf's main street.
We ordered from the wide ranging menu, that included specialised German Dishes and delectable Pizzas, A premium Wagyu schnitzel lightly crumbed with sage and onion served with salad, beer battered chips
Warm, ambient and modern restaurant. Best pizzas in the Adelaide Hills. Great food, great place.
had a great time, will go there again..
After having such a tasty experience with The Haus, cheese library. We decided to return to experience the dinner menu. Our choice of beverages from their large cellar we ordered a Pear cider and a Mclaren vale boutique beer. "very pleasant". From the exhaustive menu for starters. We ate Coffin Bay Oysters, natural, freshly shucked, with wakame, Lemmon/lime to squeeze. The oysters were, large, fresh, absolutely delicious. Up there with the best. Octopus with ruby grapefruit juice and rocket salad. The octopus was enhanced by the ruby grapefruit juice, scrumptious. For mains we ordered their signature dish. Crisp skinned half duck. Twice cooked, with Chinese broccoli, honey, soy and ginger glaze. This was prepared and presented perfectly. I ordered the Duccka Atlantic Salmon, pan seared, with roast trellis tomatoes, glazed pac choy, lime. This dish was a fish gourmet's delight. Both of these plates were, gluten free. But read on the coup de grad was a highly original Rocky Road Pizza for two, dark coverture, marshmallows, Turkish delight, macadamia & pistachio nuts, vanilla bean icecream. Completed with coffee. The restaurant provides a wonderfull array of different style seating, formal to informal, through to a well designed alfresco area. We sat inside at a high seated Oak table for two. The piano player singing and playing appropriate songs, locals, tourists and families from near and afar, chatting and enjoying such fine food, with inviting surroundings. We left late absolutely satisfied, knowing we had just experience an evening which would not be easily forgotten.
"Cheese Lovers Alert"
The Haus has an extensive cheese and beverage library, library is an excellent word to describe such a large selection of over twenty five cheeses. Swiss, French, Italian, English and Local. Goat, Cow, Ewe, Soft, Cream, Hard, Blue, truly a cheese gourmet's delight. We sampled, Goat, Blue and a Hard, all mouth watering, finishing with with a very aromatic coffee. We found the service friendly but not intrusive. This selection is available all day until late. All the cheeses are accompanied by water wheels, flat lavoche, muscatels, quince paste, rose petals and quince jellies. A very tasteful, relaxing, experience.

Slow cooked juicy pork hock, Bockwurst, Bratwurst & Cheese Kransky sausages & smoked Kassler pork chop, served with creamy mustard potato bake, sauerkraut, red wine sauce & German mustards.
