Food is absolutely exceptional but since the change in management, the service has become unbearable. We were told to "wait 5 minutes" while they set the table (we had booked). We had to wait outside - 15 mins later, we realised they had forgotten us. They also forgot our food - 40min wait between dishes - and one of our... More

We were staying in Adelaide CBD where everything seems to be shut on a weekend so took a taxi to The Pot in Hyde Park after reading a review somewhere (sorry, can't remember where). The unusual dishes were delicious (especially those buns), the wine choice good and the service helpful and friendly. Could only get a table on the street... More

This is our most favourite place to eat, drink and generally be merry. The food is brilliant, wine list top notch and topped off by extremely intelligent, well informed staff who enjoy their jobs. Never had a bad meal, breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack late in the day. Feedback always well taken as well. Oh yeah and one of the... More

There is no doubt that the food was great - it included a beautiful beef tartare and slow cooked pork belly. However the staff seemed more interested in performance than service. Fine though it was for the waitress to dance away to the music, it would have been a lot more useful to be able to hear her rapid fire... More

We had several starters, all four pot buns and a couple of the larger plates. The food was fabulous. The highlight was probably the passionfruit soufflé which was very good. Unfortunately the waiting. Staff were impatient and completely disengaged and broke some fundamental rules of service that left us feeling disappointed with the experience.

Visited The Pot for Sunday breakfast. The place is small yet very comfortable and charming. The menu was impressive with some alternative and interesting breakfast options, as well as some souped up versions of the standard bacon and eggs or french toast. Really enjoyed the food, atmosphere and friendly service. Look forward to returning.

Relaxed and casual. Food was awesome, wine was good. not many to choose from by glass but well structured and balanced list. Tassie chardonnay was exactly what I wanted but probably shouldve had the soave with the oysters and the chardy with the kingfish sashimi (my bad there). Service was prompt and friendly, only one on the floor and was... More

Even my son has said the Pot Burger is the best he has ever had. Very accommodating as my wife had the pork. Usually for 2 people, they did a portion for one. Us other three had the Pot Burger. I could never get sick of these. Unlike our previous visits we had some pudding. I had the rice pudding.... More

We went back for lunch today. A few more customers but the service was still very good. Efficient waitresses serving with a friendly smile and willing to have a chat about the menu. I had the Pot Burger again and no change, still very special, a pleasure. I do find it strange that a portion of food that does not... More

We indulged in an amazing lunch at The Pot on a cold, wintery day and my I am glad that we did! We decided on the tasting menu and were treated to seven utterly delectable offerings from the chef. From the truffled steak tartare, the 'golden egg' with salted caramel, Pot Bun with char sui pork, Berkshire pork, to the... More
