While called a restaurant what this place is, is a bar that serves food.
While waiting for our own food, we watched as the staff brought plate after plate of food out, trying to figure out what belonged to who on the balcony, sometimes taking over ten minutes, the food must have gone cold by the time it got to its owners. Our own food took forever to come out and when it arrived, pretty disappointed. Looked good, presented very well, but ultimately bland and some of the squids was still raw.
The location is excellent though, especially if you sit outside on the balcony looking onto rundle mall.

An easily accessible establishment for wining and dining. A work associate and I unwound here on a Friday night on the balcony, loving the gentle breeze cooling us down as we enjoyed our drinks and the hustle and bustle in the mall below us and eyed the gorgeous buildings that comprise this stretch. Romantic!

I was dining solo on a business trip. The restaurant was nearly empty at 8pm; but staff were courteous, friendly and efficient.

Steak was ordered medium rare and served medium rare - that doesn't often happen. Everything was simple, but perfectly done. Good choice of wines by the glass at very reasonable prices

Well located in the Rundle Mall to capture passing pedestrian traffic and worth a visit for a good quality pub meal.

Service and staff were attentive and the experience couldn't be faulted.

Located in Rundle Mall in the heart of Adelaide, this is an easy meeting place. Met up with family for lunch before they needed to head to airport. First Restaurant, very relaxed feel, spacious inside & has outside dinning on balcony if you prefer to hear the sounds of hustle & bustle of the mall (definitely worth a look). No table service, very much pub style & food was pretty good. Given it's location, menu pricey but not overly. Good spot to end a shopping spree with a well earn't drink!
