We thought we would try our luck as we didn't make a reservation but had no trouble getting a table. Really nice ambience and decor. Upmarket pub food area and restaurant style seating with high end restaurant feel on the same floor (quite unusual but they have made it work). We shared the crab meat pasta, rocket, pear and parmegano... More

The restaurant looks really inviting as you walk in. You have to order at the bar, but the staff are very helpful. They catered for dairy allergy confidently. We ordered lunch, a couple of lite bites to share then mains plus some extra chips. The portions were huge and we ended up wasting a lot of food, which was a... More

Came here for lunch and the decor is absolutely beautiful. The restaurant also has this really nice romantic lounge ambience to it. Now to the food... ordered the hand cut chips ($10), salmon ($28) and kangaroo fillet ($28). The dishes just seemed a little mediocre and nothing special, and while the chips were nice and hot, I was a little... More

So disappointed as i like staying at this Lovely boutique Hotel when in Adelaide. ordered Arranchini Balls in truffle oil as an entrée and the roughy fish fish and chips with salad and home made tartar sauce. 1. Never ever serve an entrée with the main meal. Ghastly tasting Arranchini balls. the deep fryer oil looks as though it hasn't... More

Lunchtime catch up with old friends, great location just on the Mall so convenient if you work in the CBD. Interesting decor with golden oldie black and white movies running on the big screen while you eat, marble bar and plenty of room to walk around and talk uninterrupted by other dinners. There's even couches if you want to relax... More

I was in the neighbourhood and went to this restaurant because it looks nice. The Burger was too much cooked and the fries too. The staff doesn’t come to your table and you have to order before at the counter. Decoration is cosy .

Nice big area, rarely packed, and well-presented decent food. NIce views of the Rundle Mall, and a generally feeling of being above and apart from it!

At first glance, the first floor, cavernous room that holds this restaurant might be a little off putting but persevere as they prepare delicious food and have friendly service. And the cocktails are brilliant. Top marks to the barman! I notice that many people visit here as a cocktail lounge and the front of the room where this happens opens... More

I have dined here with friends a couple of times now. The good food at a reasonable price and friendly staff keep us coming back. The chicken burger I had today was especially tasty. I'll be sure to try something else when we come back next month.
