About The Artel

While Adelaide city features numerous tapas restaurants, it makes sense that the central township of the famous McLaren Vale viticultural region should offer up the perfect foodie accompaniment to wine. The Artel, located at the northern end of McLaren Vale’s Main Road, offers modern dishes that stand out from the rest. Visit this Australian restaurant from Wednesdays to Sundays to try out innovative tapas, delicious shared plates or hearty individual mains. With an array of sampling platters, food catering for children and a spacious venue, this is the place to go to for a group gathering or a meal out with the family. If you have spare time, you can even head down to The Artel Gallery to appreciate the work of local artists.
