I have dined at this Delightful Establishment a few times now. The cuisine is wonderful. Great Ambience. The service is attentive but not over the top like some other Restaurants. I am more than happy to recommend this Establishment.

Maximilian's Restaurant and Sidewood Cellar Door Overview

Providing the ingredients for a quintessential Adelaide Hills dining experience is Maximilian's Restaurant and Sidewood Cellar Door. Nestled among vineyards, this heritage homestead circa 1851 flourishes with the rustic warmth that only a vineyard restaurant can provide, complete with open fireplaces, intimate corners and an all-weather pavilion overlooking the estate’s surrounding lakes. Celebrating the region’s local produce and artisan goods, Maximilian’s menu boasts a seasonal display of innovative Mod Oz cuisine. Pair an award-wining wine choice from the Sidewood Cellar Door with a starter of snapper toast, chimichurri, radish and nasturtium; before a main affair of pan seared South Australian flathead, saffron and Port Lincoln mussel custard, capers, kipfler potatoes and samphire.

Best Known For

Coonawarra sirloin, XO sauce, tempura eggplant, snake beans and coriander.
