Reviewed December 4, 2015 via mobile

Our initial feelings on entering Alphutte were Tired and Outdated. The restaurant appears to have been built in the 60s and never been refurbished. It did not make us feel special at all. Staff were pleasant and helpful and attended to us promptly and respectfully. The menu was comprehensive with descriptions stirring our appetites; including a very good specials menu.
Meal sizes were good and prices were what we expected; $15 for soup and $45 to $50 for mains. Desserts were $15 to $20. Did the soup or mains wow us; No! Were we so impressed that we will return; No.
Were there any complaints about the food; No but there was nothing outstanding either.

This restaurant has been around for a long time and it still delivers good food and service. The food is classical and is excellent. Service is exceptional.

Though not a vast menu, the food selection is sufficient to suit most tastes. Service is unobtrusive and platters beautifully presented. Tables are set out in such a way that customers have ample space. The "Duck" was superb and fleshy.

All the items on the menu have been great over the years, the staff know their menu and seem to know when to attend the table without being intrusive

This is undoubtedly the best restaurant in Adelaide the standard of food is exceptional and the service of the highest order. The Rack of Lamb was delicious and my steak (which I like rare) done to perfection. I am not a great fan of dessert but the crepe really hit the spot. We have been twice in recent months and will go as often as we can.
