Enjoy the view - it's worth it

Good Restaurant, a bit over whelmed by the numbers of our conference group, but good views, comfortable seating and good food.

Its a very convenient location especially if you're staying in Intercontinental Adelaide which is just across the street from the restaurant. Seating is available both upstairs and downstairs. The restaurant was pretty full when we arrived so the only tables left were the ones on the outside along the pathway. Not exactly the best place to dine as we found... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave your recent review. Our customers feedback is always a value tool and very much appreciated. May we take the chance to indicate you appear to have dined in our Cafe 129 downstairs - a casual dining experience good for busy venues that does not offer table service like many other pubs. Our...

We decided to try the "hot stone" experience of cooking our own meal. I had the seafood - prawns, squid, scallops, salmon and bug; while my husband decided to try the "Aussie" - crocodile, roo, lamb and barra. These came with chips and we added a green salad. We very much enjoyed the stone cooking experience, although were surprised that... More

It is a restaurant with good food and atmosphere. It is worth to go and good to spend an evening with friends or have celebrating events.

We had dinner at this Restaurant on a Saturday night so was busy. The food was excellent. Staff were a bit slow to get drinks.

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
