Just take a moment to check out the breathtaking location for this equally as breathtaking place to take your family out for a meal.
Taking out for a meal doesn’t seem to do it justice really, it is more ‘spoiling your family with a culinary experience’, but without feeling like you have to dip into the life savings to cover the bill.
So what exactly is it that makes Vintage Chef Co so damn good? Read on!
Lets start with the location. The beautiful Barossa Valley. Lyndoch to be exact, nestled in the grounds of Chateau (yes I had to check I spelt ‘Chateau’ correctly) Yaldara, a sprawling property that looks more like a palace than anything we have seen in a long time. It truly is a stunning property, which if you are lucky enough to capture on a day like our visit, must be one of the most picturesque places in our state.
We started off our visit with a little bit of play time on the huge grassed area, which was perfect after the almost hour long drive (didn’t feel like an hour to be honest, it was such a nice drive) and we saw plenty of families kicking the footy and running around.
The main Vintage Chef Co building is on the end right next to the tower and one of the first things you will notice is the MASSIVE kids play room. This hexagonal room is fabulously spacious with natural light beaming in. Lots of great toys to keep the kids busy while you enjoy a delicious meal and relax.
But how about the food? It might be pretty to look at but what does it taste like? Ok so lets hope the words and pictures properly get across how much we loved the food here. Un-freaking-believable!
Vintage Chef Co. is open for breakfast and lunch and kids well and truly catered for. We loved the VCC Kids Platter which included a ham and cheese toastie, fruit, veggie sticks, cookie and a fruit box. Just perfect for a hungry 1 year old who thought all his Christmases had come at once. The Spaghetti Bolognaise is full of hidden veg (just the way we like it), Ham and Cheese Pizza, fruit platter – everyone is catered for here – even the fussiest of fusspots. We didn’t do the breakky, but the kids nutella crepes look like they would be a very, very good candidate for some Dad Tax. Just saying
“Thats enough about the kids”, we hear you say…Don’t worry, the adult menu is just as superb. Designed so there is a little something for everyone this is a really unique experience incorporating top class food but in a genuinely comfortable family friendly environment. Not a common combo…but Vintage Chef Co. have nailed it.
We over ate here. Not going to lie. Couldn’t choose, so we chose it all. The Vintage Platter could very, very easily comfortably feed 2 adults and with some local wines thrown in, is very budget friendly. A gorgeous selection of local meats, cheeses, dips and fruits….plus more. We highly, highly recommend. The karaage chicken is to die for, as are the dumplings and beef carpaccio. You really can’t go wrong. With any choice.
