Great Food, good wine.

This is a local's pub that sells good food and great wine. It's not cheap though and the ambience is of a local pub. We ate in the "outside" area, but it was fully enclosed and very warm. We ordered from the specials menu, and started with Coffin Bay Oysters, which were so fresh and just the... read more

An iconic venue that we've been visiting off and on for 17 years or more. We have watched the changes to the building, most of which are very positive without harming the charm of the venue. The Victory has great views, a fabulous cellar and a great name. Unfortunately the food is only ok right now. We had the sesame... More

We had a table of 11 last Saturday afternoon for a birthday lunch. Could not fault the food or the service. Staff very helpful. Everyone loved the food. Not one complaint. I had the Victory burger... The best I have had. Gret views and a nice grassed area. Would go back again and again. Highly recommend.

We stopped in on Sunday 5th July for coffee and cake. I decided to order the Apple and Rhubarb crumble. It was beyond edible, and at $12 was a rip off too. The apples were not even peeled so the skin was really tough, the crumble was not even crumble. it was a mix of nuts and porridge oats sprinkled... More

If you order a dish off a restaurant menu, the chefs in the restaurant will "create" that dish. If you order Apple and rhubarb crumble in 10 different restauraunts I'm sure you will find that each one will be different in interesting ways. Some you may like and some you may not. This is how life goes. You didn't like... More

Firstly let me say if you are looking for somewhere with ambience, and for a quiet Friday lunch then this is not the place for you. We arrived just before 12 (no booking) and had the option of seating either inside or outside under the pergola which is enclosed by plastic cafe blinds. Even though the outside temperature was only... More

We revisited this restaurant last week for lunch. It is a great place to bring friends to as the sea and countryside views are great. The front entry part of the restaurant was fully booked out and this would be a great place to sit but we sat opposite the bar area and still had good views through the verandah... More

Stopped here for lunch on a Tuesday to find the dining room quite busy. A very good sign for midweek. Went down to the cellar and picked a good bottle of Rockfords for lunch and the wine was superb. the meals were brilliant - best oysters and snapper I have eaten in years. Staff were very attentive and the meals... More

My partner had the steak and said that it was great. I had the King George Whiting and it was very nice but also only two very small fillets. We were seated by the bar in front of the doorway so it was freezing cold every time someone open the door. And it was a little bit annoying having people... More

First place for lunch after touch down in Adelaide visiting relatives who are regulars...fantastic location on the hill looking out to the sea. Place will become even more popular with visitors to the giant Buddah just up the road which is another must see in the area. Great menu and a very good specials board... I opted for the pie...
