The pork belly entree, Vietnamese style, was amazing. I had the swordfish which was good but not outstanding. But the frozen sheeps milk parfait was a superb dessert. Just perfect.

This well-located restaurant sits on the banks of the Torrens River in Adelaide not far from the city centre. The space and views are lovely but it is the food which is amazing. The 12-hour cooked lamb shoulder was scrumptious and at $55 for two...More
