Nice atmosphere, great service, no airconditioning, desserts not so great

I went to this dessert place on a hot evening in summer and was disappointed to find that there was no airconditioning. There were 5 of us so we decided to remain there and try it out. I got bitten by mosquitoes 4 times because the windows were wide open for ventilation. I ordered the Mr Burger... read more

We've been to Astonish now 3 times, and overall, it is pretty average. The first time we went food had been microwaved until it was hard, and nothing that came out was nice at all. We were told it was a bad night, and were given vouchers to use another time. We decided to give them another shot, and to... More

The desserts here keeps getting better. We've been to the other dessert places in Adelaide but this place is certainly one of the best ones we have. To quote my father directly, the food was "out of this world". This place is definitely worth a try if u are craving a quiet night out for some delicious desserts. Who knows,... More

We were really impressed with this place and left wondering why we hadn't visited sooner. Service was quick and friendly, but it was the food that really won us over. It's hard to go wrong with a very chocolatey chocolate and hazelnut cake and Astonish didn't disappoint (however it was so rich that I wouldn't recommend tackling it on your... More

We just dropped in after dinner for desserts, the place was fairly busy but we were served straight away. We both had the apple crumbles which tasted fantastic & were presented well on a wooden board. The staff were friendly & happy to serve you. We also had two ice chocolates & unlike other reviews of this restaurant our ice... More

This is a bit of a delayed post but I recently wrote about this in my blog and thought I had to post here too. I held my birthday at Astonish in January. I had to pay a room hire fee for the 2.5 hours we were there for with dessert for 20 people including 20 ice teas. Firstly, the... More

I was looking forward to going to Astonish, I love dessert and I wanted to try this place. Were we so very DISAPPOINTED. The iced chocolates were warm, I pointed this out to the waitress who advised yes, they use it for hot chocolate???????? It had also been partially made with water. The oreo cheesecake could only be had in... More

Having been to a number of other dessert places in and around Adelaide, I have never experienced such dreadful drinks and service. The "iced" drinks were luke warm, it took 55 minutes for the drinks to arrive and the worst was the service. It felt (and was literally) like begging (only we did the paying, not the other way around)!... More

I recently went here for a friend's birthday! She had booked out the back room and had to pay a lot for the room and then for the food as well. I believe she didn't receive all of the free food/drinks too. When I first arrived it was really nice weather outside - which was great because this was right... More

We had walked past this shop front many times in the past week and dropped in to seek dessert following a disappointing meal earlier in the night (see the Stag Hotel). What an oasis greeted us on the inside. We ordered a glass of wine each and a selection of three cheeses. The first glasses were oxidised (it happens, no... More
