1918 Bistro & Grill Photo by McWhere

A lovely Barossa stone, historical cottage with pressed metal ceilings, lead light glass, timber and plaster archways, with timber floors, and all the rooms opened up to each other, but with enough walls left to make more intimate dining areas. These walls are adorned throughout with local photos and art work. One room is kept separate for private parties, meetings etc. In winter there are three fireplaces lit with roaring fires, while in summer, on a balmy Barossa evening, you may choose the vine-covered verandah area, overlooking lawn and gardens. From a selective menu of predominately fresh local produce, for entrees we enjoyed salt and pepper soft shell crab, green papaya, coriander and mint salad, sweet and sour chilli dressing (quite hot and spicy). Also tempura battered king prawns with daikon, carrots and wakami salad, bonito mayonnaise, delicious!. Our mains were, Szechwan peppered kangaroo fillet, kim chi, shallot cake, Korean BBQ sauce. (The Korean components makes this dish quite hot and spicy) elegantly presented and very tender. Plus, from the weekly special menu, the char grilled Coorong Angus scotch fillet, with roasted parsnips, garlic aioli and grilled Scultz's bacon, mouth watering. Our accompanying wines were, a 2012 Tom Foolery "Trouble

Recommend anyone staying in the Barossa to have a look at 1918. Food was delicious, up there with most one hat restaurants. Service was attentive but not over bearing in a relaxed setting.. Lovely open fire place. Will go back!

Wife and I were there on cold night, and the warm cosy fire warmed us up. Good casual atmosphere with attentive service. Food was really good and the price for the experience was more than worth. Will definitely recommend to my friends...

Had the good fortune to Dine at 1918 in the Barossa, cold winters night, how ever the cosy open fire was delightful, certainly enhanced the Ambience, the food was wonderful, great range of Wines to select from. Look forward to going back soon, perhaps a Warmer Day to experience the Al Fresco Dining either in the Garden or perhaps under the Verandah! So many choices. Terrific!

1918 Bistro & Grill Overview

For memorable dining in the heart of the Barossa Valley, discover 1918 Bistro and Grill hidden almost out of sight by lush greenery on Tanunda’s main street. Taking its name from the stone of the old villa, 1918 boasts a charming interior filled with country décor providing plenty of warmth and character well suited to cosy dining. Contemporary Australian dishes feature seasonal produce with culinary influences from Asia and the Middle East, and are paired with some of the best wines the Barossa Valley has to offer. Start with entrees such as seared scallops with carrots, peas, black pudding and Vadouvan, before delving into a main course of twice cooked pork belly with chilli jam, snake beans and green mango. Should there be room to spare, savour a warm coconut pudding and caramel pears.

A few words from 1918 Bistro & Grill

1918 Bistro & Grill is situated in the wine region of the Barossa Valley, 60km drive North-East of Adelaide. It's located in the main street of Tanunda next to the Seppeltsfield arch. The restaurant was originally opened in 1992 and derives its name from the foundation stone the year it was built.

Owners Christian and Melissa Fletcher are producing modern Australian cuisine which is prepared from seasonal and local produce. The extensive wine list specializes in local wines with many back vintages. Eat in the tranquil cottage style garden setting under shady trees and market umbrellas during the warmer months and around the cosy open log fires in winter.

The menu changes seasonally with weekly specials featuring fresh produce. Everything is made fresh on the premises and encompasses local cheeses and wine.
