Tucked away among the rolling hills of Spring Gully, Skillogalee Restaurant is about more than just a meal — it’s an experience that embodies the essence of the Clare Valley. Set in our historic 1850s stone settler’s cottage, our restaurant provides a warm, welcoming atmosphere where you can immerse yourself in our region’s exceptional food and wine.
Whether you choose to dine inside the cosy cottage, on the verandah with its panoramic views of the vineyard, or beneath the dappled shade of our old olive tree, the breathtaking countryside is yours to enjoy. Skillogalee is the ideal setting for a relaxed lunch or a special get-together with friends and family.
We welcome guests daily for lunch and wine tastings, all set against the stunning backdrop of our vineyards in the Clare Valley.
Bookings are highly recommended, as we operate a small restaurant with limited seating. For same-day reservations, or if your desired time slot is unavailable, please contact us directly on (08) 8843 4311 to explore alternative options.
Kindly note that our menu is subject to change, and a two-course minimum applies on weekends and public holidays.
LOCAL AND SEASONAL MENU
We present a seasonally inspired menu that celebrates the finest local produce and ingredients, each thoughtfully paired with our award-winning wines. Our collaboration with outstanding local suppliers and producers ensures that every dish not only spotlights the rich variety of Clare Valley and South Australian produce but also honours the dedicated producers who grow and farm it.
Central to our dining philosophy is our estate’s kitchen garden, which our chefs visit daily to handpick the freshest produce and collect farm-fresh eggs from our free-range chickens. This farm-to-table approach ensures that each dish embodies the soul of Clare Valley’s produce with an unmatched level of freshness, from our garden directly to your plate.
Our menu is constantly evolving, reflecting the best of what’s in season. We’re committed to bringing you the freshest, most flavourful ingredients, ensuring every meal you have with us captures the true character of Clare Valley.
