A truly beautiful experience
From the moment we walked in we were greeted with so many welcoming faces we felt like VIP. The food is absolutely incredible, the best quality produce that is thoughtful, respecful and curated to bring such pleasure to your palate. Accompanied by one of the most astonishing wines lists I have even seen. This is beyond a meal is an experience that left is feeling uplifted.

JULY 2022

Our favourite dining experience Our favourite restaurant in South Australia.
Such a delight the service, food & wine is second to none. The first visit we chose the 7 course degustation with the premium wine match and it was worth every penny. ... The Rusden Black Guts Shiraz was beautiful. We booked well in advance choosing the 6.15pm setting to watch the sunset over the stunning Piccadilly valley. It is worth going early to enjoy a cocktail at the Arthur Waterhouse bar also in Mount Lofty House - I can highly recommend the spritz cocktail for a refreshing drink.

An amazing experience
We were staying in the Lodge for an anniversary and had 7 course meal paired with sommelier's choice of wines. Special tribute to sommelier Abhas Saxena, who explained the choice of wines and provided alternatives to match different tastes. His attention and knowledge really made the evening special. Service from all staff was excellent. The food was also excellent, as were the views from the window table.
