We had a great casual meal at Press. Beet root salad, scallops and lambs brian were fabulous. The Spanish rose was good too. The selection of 3 cheeses seemed like a great idea, except when the blue cheese turned out to be partly frozen dry and shrivelled up. After telling the waitress about this, she seemed to take on no... More

There is a real excitement in Adelaide and renewed search for fine but simple dining. Somewhere trendy with great atmosphere - but doesn't charge $99 for a glass of water.... Somewhere that's creating more than your standard dishes and pushing the boundaries.... Press does this effortlessly. The decor is dark, but strangely warm with a combination of upstairs booths, long... More

This is our kind of restaurant! Creative, unique, fresh, and well-prepared culinary creations that are complimented with a beverage selection that is just as thought out. We selected the chef's tasting menu and were brought at least 7 courses; well-worth the $68 per person price tag. The atmosphere is lively and can be a bit crowded; if you're seated at... More

The interior is dim with large, long tables and high stools. It felt a bit 'wannabe' at first. But, we settled quickly and before long we felt right at home. The staff are quick and courteous. The food is outstanding. We had fried pork buns that I still dream about. Soft but chewy buns, with a delicious pork filling. Hmmm.... More

Our evening at Press* was very enjoyable, from the share tables to the 'shared' wait staff and sharing the menu. The staff made us feel like friends, sharing their thoughts on food and drinks along with a few laughs. We chose the tasting menu and were completely happy and satisfied with the quality and quantity of dishes provided. To my... More

Atmosphere here is amazing, great decor and love the communal dining set up. The food unfortunately, was a let down. We ordered the tasting menu. The menu wasn't cohesive whatsoever. Usually tasting menus have a common theme and a logical progression from one dish to the next. At the press there are Italian, Australian and Asian influences and it all... More

Surprised at the mixed reviews. I am travelling solo and had a wonderful experience. Asked for the tasting menu. Had mixeseveral waiting staff but a "main" waiter who was thoroughly professional. He asked if I wanted offal which I declined. He matched glasses of wine to each plate and nailed the matches each time. I only ate a little of... More

Recently went to press for dinner as a friend wanted to go. Had a very average experience the time before but my friend hadn't been so I went along. Firstly, the service was terrible. Some of the issues could probably be overcome by having one person serving (instead of 5 different staff). We had staff spill water on us, get... More
