A restaurant with southern France atmosphere
The Au Pear Restaurant in Willunga is one of our favorite places for a relaxed long lazy lunch in this picturesque wine region of McLaren Vale.
Located a little outside of the famous Main Street of McLaren Vale in Willunga, this beautiful setting reminds you to the flair of a restaurant in the French Provence.
The concern of the owner is to deliver seasonal Fleurieu freshness with a twist of French cuisine. The stunning view from the sitting area over the vineyard is sensational and absolutely relaxing. A perfect place, not only for an extensive lunch, but also for your wedding ceremony.
But not only is the ambiance and atmosphere of this perfectly French styled building fantastic, The Au Pear is also the perfect place to enjoy fabulous food.
The innovative a la carte menu with modern cuisine changes each season. You will experience a wide range of local products, which are prepared with care and love. The Chef purchases from some of the most passionate producers of the Fleurieu Peninsula.
Furthermore, they like to think fresh and let you feel like being at home. At this time of the year they have some fantastic winter warmers on their menu.
The team at Au Pear is also focused on hosting bespoke events. They provide 4 different rooms for your next event: the Restaurant, the Garden room, the Almond Shed and the outdoor garden setting. Get in touch with Muff, the owner, and come down for a coffee to discuss your event. It will for sure become something truly individual and memorable … get your party started!
Since we have visited this magnificent restaurant for the first time by recommendation, we come back on a regular basis. At least four times a year in order not to miss a menu of a season. The food is excellent, the hosts are very friendly and the wine list is locally inspired. Prices are reasonable too.
Next event @ Au Pear:
Christmas in July Date: 23rd of July from 6pm to 8.30pm
