Thanks for making this an unforgettable experience
There is a reason this is among the top rated restaurants in Australia. The resort of which the restaurant is part of itself is amazing. Once in, the wine list and cocktails are perfect! The food (all 7 courses) is an absolutely delightful journey. The seafood, duck, red meat all perfectly cooked and flavoured. They even had a special dessert sent out for my wife whose birthday we were celebrating. Thanks for making this an unforgettable experience. Definitely recommend.

KymA - April 2023

Amazing food and service
Set degustation is on the higher end but it is worth the experience. Food was explosive with flavour and wow'd us throughout the night. The underground tour by the manager was great to see how the restaurant that once was a hotel has turned into an amazing fine dining.

A true fine dining experience
...in the foothills of Adelaide. The matched wines with each degustation course were on point & explained very well by the sommelier. Lunch is the best time to take in the amazing Piccadilly Valley views.



MARCH 2023

A truly beautiful experience
Amazing imaginative food served by professional knowledgeable staff. Their degustation menus are delicious. Our sommelier was a delight, he brought knowledge and character to his explanations of our wine pairings
