This Australian-inspired bar and restaurant features all time favourites from down under. Think chilli mussels with white wine sauce, beer battered fish & chips, seared pacific scallop with pancetta and steaks. Flowing from the beer taps are handcrafted lagers and ales from Archipelago Brewery.

Bought 2 groupons for all-you-can-eat Australian Beef Buffet at Barossa Bar for $35 each.
If you are coming to Barossa for their beef buffet, just spam the Wagyu D Rump. Its definitely the best beef out of the other choices, easy to cut, thick. juicy and chewy. I also love the cream spinach and braised beef cheek.
Overall score - 8.5/10
I have to say that I had an absolutely hysterical visit to Barossa last night (11 June 2016). We all know that service in Singapore is lousy across the board, but Barossa brings bad service into a new dimension. You really should visit for a drink just to check it out (hopefully you get served).
The waites are so bad that they ACTIVELY try to avoid servicing people. Sitting down after about 10 minutes with no service I frantically waived to a waiter who waived back, then walked around a pillar and disappeared. The restaurant was empty - only one other table was occupied.
When I finally got a waiter, I asked what the white wine was. Of course he had no idea, and ten minutes later returned and said 'chardonnay.' Oddly there didn't seem to be any management of the place, meaning no waiter appeared to 'own' any set of tables. When glasses were empty nobody ever asked if we wanted a refill.
My young daughter asked for a PLAIN cheeseburger, making it clear she wanted nothing but the bun, meat, and cheese. The buger arrived covered in salsa and lettuce, etc., and we promtly sent it back. The kitchen staff took the burger, cleaned it off with a towel, threw it on the same bun, and sent it back out. Not only did they not get the order correct, they couldn't be bothered to rectify the situation professionally.
I got a lamb pizza, which ended up having about 5 scraps of mint-sides lamb on it. The pizza dough was from a frozen (manufactured) pack, with sad tomato slices on it.
How do places like Barossa stay in business? I am confounded every day by the thought of how institutions like this can sustain themselves. Whoever owns the place has absolutely no idea how to manage a restaurant, which is a shame because it's in a great location.
I'd avoid this place like the plague, and I'm sorry I even stayed for dinner. I saw the service nightmare the second I communicated with the wait staff and should have left before ordering.
Service is really, really bad. Servers are not paying attention to customers. Several people had to walk up to a server or to the counter to give their orders. Some people just left because they could not get any server's attention.
