Nothing complicated about this place except for (sometime) the plating-up. Unbelievable food, well presented and a good selection of good local wine. Willunga is a small country town but punches well above its weight with excellence – check it out.

We missed their new second restaurant at Barossa and end up going to their original place. A smaller restaurant with a bit feeling of cave design when you go in. The staff is nice but a bit busy to manage everything on the floor. We...More

Have been to Fino on two occasions, long lunch and intimate dinner. Very impressed all round and have highly recommended the venue to our family and friends. We will be returning in 2016 for a long sunday family lunch.

Could not fault the service, it was excellent. We chose not to share and each ordered a main course which we enjoyed, but would not rave about it. Then came dessert and I ordered the quince and rhubarb crumble. This bore no relation to quince...More

In its' nine years of existence, FINO, in the historic Willunga township, has become a much loved and celebrated restaurant in the McLaren Vale wine region and highly acclaimed in the state of South Australia and nationally. Fino loves real food that tastes like real food; fresh, exciting and expressing flavour first rather than fashion and design. It has established its reputation with a menu built on local and seasonal ingredients sourced from a myriad of local farmers, a small, carefully designed wine list and excellence in service. The ever-present owners, David Swain (Chef) and Sharon Romeo (Front of House) take great pleasure in giving their 'guests' a genuine, friendly food and wine experience that reflects the best from the region and its' people
