Be prepared, be hungry. The portion sizes are huge here. My friend and I shared the lobster medallion and Manchego churros as entrees. Lobster was in a beautiful creamy, curry-like bisque. Churros were refreshing crispy and loved the goats cheese & salad that it was paired with. By the end of this we were feeling kinda full but had the... More

We enjoyed a Friday lunch at d'Arry's as part of our getaway to South Australia. The food was outstanding! We started off sharing a plate of manchego churros - a combination that worked brilliantly! For mains, I opted for the steak, which was obviously a very high quality cut of meat - it melted in the mouth. My husband raved... More

I was taken to darrys for my birthday, everything was amazing the wine, the service, the venue and the food well it was the best I have ever had. We had the steak and it melted in my mouth. We were so full we could not fit in a dessert but had a plate of petite fours to share again... More

Best kangaroo in Oz. Lived in SA for 32 months and visited every chance we got. Go back on every extended visit to Adelaide. Never had a bad meal. The wine celler tasting room adjacent is the largest sampling room you will ever find. Might want to sample a few before and more after lunch.

My family had the degustation menu with matching wines on Christmas eve. I echo the very positive comments about food which was of a very high quality although not all dishes worked as well as others. For example the bisque was excellent but the chocolate desert lacked balance. Service was a little variable but generally very good. An example of... More

This is the second time I've been here for a group lunch. Both times, everyone in our group has been impressed. Between us, we've had everything on the menu and every dish has been fabulous! Service is great and it's a nice atmosphere! 5** we spent some time in the tasting room after lunch and this was lovely too. It's... More

Visited here recently in a group of 8 again and overall very happy. The service was outstanding and the signature dishes, lobster medalion, pork and soufle remain classics. When coming here you need to remember that its a vineyard resturant so limited to the proprieters wines which whilst strong in some areas are lacking elsewhere. Also the dessert wine flight... More

It was a 'new decade' birthday so our family group of 5 celebrated with a Sunday lunch. Food and service were both great. Don't miss the signature lobster ravioli bisque. Staff were knowledgeable and attentive to the food restrictions of our very pregnant one, offering, without being asked, an alternative to the cured salmon and suggesting they would cook the...
