Ember Pizza can be found in the impressive ‘Provenance’ precinct in the heart of Nuriootpa. A lovely old Penfolds building that presents as a hub of eclectic, genuine Barossa food, beverage and tourism experiences. A must do if you are travelling with others, as there is bound to be something here that is sure to please every one, including the kids!

Arriving in the Barossa off the back of a busy Saturday morning of sport, you guessed it – we had hungry kids on our hands and Ember made the perfect first choice.

The venue, service and menu options (heavily weighted with local fare) provided us with the casual sophistication that we were chasing for our Barossa (with kids) experience. Equally it offered space, a cracking uncomplicated kids menu PLUS an activity or two to keep them occupied while the adults confirmed our weekend itineraries over a wine (of course.)

Stand outs for the kids were the Mac’n’Cheese and supplied cricket and lawn games out the front.

For the adults, we came for the Pizza and it did not disappoint. Think simple, quality Italian wood oven pizza (with the cutest pots of chilli oil – which is very on trend, like the whole show here really). We also loved our lentil, grain and pomegranate salad.

It is with regret that we were too full for the Rocky Road Dessert Pizza. Next time a special trip just for that. It looked amazing on a neighbouring table, and we are told it is the star of the dessert show.

Picture your self here soon, alfresco dining under an umbrella, local wine in hand, with full bellied happy kids running around on the lawn.

Fancy. Simple. Tasty as hell and perfect with kids.
