Always excellent! Delicious- this is what good food should be all about. Every time we come to Adelaide we go to Darry's, and every time it is faultless. Today we went and had the degustation, and what an amazing meal! Standouts mmm... the lobster bisque with prawn and crab tortellini. This must be the best thing I have eaten for... More

We made reservations with Jo by e-mail from the states long in advance, based on TA and other sources - and liked it so much we returned the following day. We had the tasting menu first, followed by an ala carte approach the second time. This was a bit of a problem, since it all looked so good, especially after... More

What a wonderful experience. Brilliant view overlooking the vines down the hill side. The staff were excellent, attentive and knowedgable about the produce and the drinks. The ravioli with lobster bisque was to die for. We had the pork belly & salmon mains and they were both excellent. Great depth of flavour in the pork belly dish. Desserts were nougat... More

Took a friend here for lunch as a thankyou and certainly didn't regret doing so. Everything was fantastic - the food, service, location, view. Two had the scallops for entree and they were perfect. Two main courses, pork belly and duck exceptional, but the highlight was the signature lobster entree which I had instead of a main course. Friend who... More

Our meal started well with our friendly and knowledgeable waitress explaining the wine list and menu. We dined a la carte and found the food delicious and beautifully presented. Some dishes were exceptional, particularly the lobster entree and nougat kataifi. Great experience.

We went to d'Arry's for lunch straight from the airport. My wife and I went with another couple. We ordered two courses initially but end up sharing a couple desserts because the meal was great and the desserts looked amazing. The stand out dish was their signature bug and lobster entree , the bisque was so rich and tasty I... More

Today was another fantastic trip to DÁrenberg winery for lunch and tasting. Jo and all the staff make every visit memorable, from the personalised menus to the fantastic table service. The degustation menu gets better every time, the food is innovative and always delicious and pairs perfectly with the selected wines. The lobster bisque with prawn and crab ravioli is... More

This is a place if its nice weather make sure you are outside. The food was sensational and its not a place you want to be in a hurry to leave. Relax and have a late lunch and stay for the afternoon.
