We (grandparents + parents + 2 grandsons) went there for stone grill on Easter Saturday evening. The fun came from each one of us having to cook ourselves our own choice of raw meats on pre-heated very very hot stone on the table (see photos uploaded). I guess it was the feeling of taking control of cooking one's own food... More

The restaurant was lovely and peaceful. Mainly older diners early evening. We had the shared platter for two as the starter. My husband enjoyed the pork/pear meatballs and the salt and pepper squid. He said the squid was the best he had ever eaten. High praise indeed! I had the vegetable spring rolls which I found to be just carrot... More

We visited for a quiet dinner, and decided 3 courses would be it - let's be a little indulgent. Oysters for entree, the stonegrill eye fillet with a side of kangaroo and the chicken for mains were all exceptional. Desserts were great too. The beer and wine list were varied and reasonably priced, although you can hit the expensive end... More

We had dinner at the Balcony Restaurant during our first night in Adelaide. It is quite a lovely venue, with beautiful large windows which over look North Terrace! The service was good and the food was delicious! It was a lovely dinner for our first night and would happily go again if we were in Adelaide!

My friends and I visited this restaurant recently after hearing many good things about it. We opted for the grazing platter and a stone grill to share amongst three. However, as soon as the grazing platter was brought out, an earwig crawled out from the plate and onto the table. Yes -- a bug had come out of our food.... More

I love the stone grill - the last mouthful of steak is as fresh and hot as the first! Their aioli sauce is to die for! lovely setting upstairsfor a more intimate dining experience.

The food here was excellent, had the fillet on the stonegrill with sides of kangaroo and crocodile which you can cook to your liking. A bit expensive but worth every penny.

Enjoyed our meal very much, the service was excellent and my husband was fascinated when presented with his steak on a hot stone grill for him to cook himself at the table, to his desired taste.
