I wish I could give more than 5 stars, as 5 stars just doesn't do this place justice! This would have to be, hands down, one of our most favourite dining experiences ever. Everything was just so incredible. The atmosphere is so lovely - warm,...More

Fantastic food without fault. Service was impeccable and atmosphere was fitting for a quality restaurant. Cant go wrong with the steak and the scallops were to die for. Ending the night with amasing desserts.

This steakhouse, based on what I saw, has excellent quality meats, and the steaks they served were very good. I can't agree with some of the people on this site who claim that this restaurant serves best steaks in the world, because I tried better...More

I have dinner here every time I come to the Mount. Usually five to six times each year. It never fails, the steaks are fantastic, cooked and rested really well. The tasting plate to start is also a great way to begin your meal.

Had rump and fillet steak. Rump was ordered medium but was well done. However very tasty and tender. Rather expensive for what it was as sides were baked potato and salad which which was probably pre prepared. Also had to pay 4.50 for sauce.

We were visiting Mount Gambier for Generations in Jazz and knew that eating would be difficult at most places. This was doubly the issue for The Barn as they were catering for the entire event, not just at their usual restaurant. To say we were...More

My wife and I had a steak for dinner. It was okay -- nothing special considering the asked price. We also had some roasted potatoes, but unfortunately they were quite tasteless. Yet, the local wine we ordered was very nice.

We select the best export quality beef available in the country. Our preference is for beef that is finished on grass as this provides meat with maximum flavor, just as nature intended. What we do differently at the Barn is that we age our beef on the premises for 8 weeks or longer. When you consider the work, the cost, the waste, is it really worthwhile to age beef for a long time? Most people and places say beef is aged when it is two weeks old. Like great wines that improve for 50 years, great beef gets sweeter, more tender and acquires a taste that cannot be duplicated except with proper aging.
