We spent our first evening in the Barossa Valley at 1918. Well worth the visit. Beautiful food and lovely service. We couldn't fault anything here. We had the 4 course set menu with the wine match. A great introduction to the Barossa Valley!

We've been to many restaurants in Australia now and 1918 sticks out as not a value. Polite but slow service and the restaurant was not at all busy when we were there. The value for what we paid was simply not there. We had Kangaroo...More

We were stopping close by in Tanunda, we decided to give 1918 a try, it was pretty chilly outside and was great to get inside and warm up close to the (real) fire. Service and food was excellent, each course was excellent, standouts were the...More

THE STORY BEHIND 1918 The Great War was drawing to a close when Friedrich Carl Gottleib Wallent put the finishing touches to his fine home in Murray Street, by chiseling the date in the foundation stone by the front door. His son Morris later became the mayor of Tanunda and took over the family home. More than 70 years later in 1992, an enterprising group of locals turned the proud Wallent home into the Barossa's first bistro grill - a friendly and generous place where Barossa winemakers could entertain their guests and visitors could relax after a hard day's wine tasting. In 1998 Tanya and Sid King visited 1918 as guests 17 years later, in 2015 the opportunity arose for The King Family to be the new custodians of this fine home of Barossa Hospitality. They are passionate about serving fresh, seasonally-inspired cuisine, accompanied by carefully selected wines from the Barossa's best and iconic Australian and International wineries - but guests are also welcome to bring their own special bottle. What you'll also find is a youthful passion and buzz, modern Australian tastes and flavours that are borrowed from Asia and the Middle East, and a genuine willingness to please.
