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.

This was my 4th stay at the Hotel but my first at eating at the restaurant. I was a bit nervous about how long the dinner would take to come out as the Miss SA finalists were there for the Miss Australia competition but I needn't have worried. I just ordered a couple of entrees (wings and arancini balls). The... More

The venue inside is absolutely stunning. The curtains and the fairy lights are very pretty. I ordered the paella with chicken, chorizo, prawns, saffron and paprika. I have had paella in barcelona and many other restaurants. Unfortunately this was so spicy I could not even eat it. When the waitress collected the plates, I told her. She offered me another...

We had dinner here on two evenings and there was good value and tasty meals and a fair selection of quality wines at reasonable prices.
