Coming to Europa was a bit of a punt for us. It was really nice doing the tram ride out from the city to a restaurant in Glenelg.

The Europa has a nice, modern decor, they were busy when I ate here but it didn't feel crowded. For my dinner I had the lamb shanks - they were the best I have ever eaten. The meat fell away from the bone and was delicious. I also treated myself to a liqueur affogato for desert which was divine. I... More

We visited this fine dining establishment on a cold Wednesday night for a small close family celebration of my son's 21st birthday. The beautifully decorated, warm and cosy dining area was most inviting and the lovely wood look gas fire just added to the experience. Both the waiters provided the most exceptional and friendly service I have had the pleasure... More

We stopped to review the menu & were greeted by a friendly waiter who pointed out the heater in the outdoor dining area. Pleasant and efficient service. I had the grilled sardines & a main of mussels, both of which were superb. My wife enjoyed the salt & pepper calamari. Yum

The menu was excellent. Service was very accommodating and friendly. Coffee served to a very high standard. Enjoyed an evening meal at the Europa. The waiter's wine knowledge was good. I enjoyed one of the best affocados.

Just arrived in Adelaide, decided on meal at Europa.Menu looked great, salmon very dry & different to menu description. Sequence in which meal arrived detracted from experience and the bill did not total to the dining experience. In other words very pricy but not as good as you would expect for price!

Best you will ever have! I have eaten at this restaurant on each of my last 50 visits to Adelaide, always the same meal and never disappointed. Service can be hit and miss, but the food is spot on
