About Maximilian's Restaurant and Sidewood Cellar Door

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.

Magic

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.
