Tucked away off our Wine Room is the Artisans Room, a private space reserved exclusively for our Artisans and special guests.

A place to relax and settle into a hosted tasting and a deeper dive into the world of small batch Barossa winemaking.

Tasting Experiences begin at $125 and allow you to take a deeper dive in our world of Barossa wine.

Minimum booking of 2 guests.

Make a Restaurant Booking

Essen means ‘to eat’. A word that captures how we like to enjoy and share everything that is good and beautiful in our special part of the world.

Our ever changing menu reflects the seasons, and is offered for the table to share.

Our menu features three dining experiences; ‘Essence of Essen’ and ‘The Artisans Experience’ along with an a la carte menu.

Essence of Essen:
Showcasing the best produce that our region has to offer, like a fine bottle of wine, the Essence of Essen is designed to share. Our chef will hand select dishes from our current menu for your group to share and enjoy.

The Artisans Experience:
A food & wine experience that incorporates the Essence of Essen with a curated wine pairing for each course.


For groups of 7 or more, we require that you dine on our ‘Essence of Essen’ or ‘The Artisans Experience’ menu. Please see our menu for reference. Please let our staff know of any food allergies when making your booking.

Open Friday to Sunday 12pm - 3pm

For private dining, events and group bookings of more than 10 people, please email our reservations manager.
