We were the second group to order, yet the service was very slow. First of all, I was given the wrong drink as it needed to be the vegan one - but at least they came back to exchange it... We were then asked if we would like water while waiting for our food, so we said yes. The desserts... More

Over priced and lacks space. Too close to others to have a conversation. Cheese cake special didn't taste like cheesecake at all. Lost it's appeal to me and won't rush back.

My husband and I used to visit the Elephant walk on a regular basis while we were dating back in the early 90's, when it was brilliant. We decided to revisit when we found out it was still running..... bit of a mistake. I must admit the waiter was friendly and polite. The place is CRYING out for an update... More

The Elephant Walk hasn't changed much in decades with its quirky dingy surroundings. however, it is an Adelaide icon and offers good food and drink in a very cosy atmosphere. It gets busy later in the evening.

We were racking out brains for somewhere to go for a nice dessert after dinner. Somewhere in the discussion the Elephant Walk came up. Neither of us had been there for 25 years....And it hasn't changed. Same decor, same cool vibe. We had the pecan pie. Yum!! Glad to finally get back there.

A gorgeous warm and cozy cafe to enjoy with friends. Very comfortable booths to sit in. We enjoyed the Chocolate Fondue which we shared together and have a wide varieties of coffees and teas to choose from. A lovely cafe to visit.

Ive got mixed feelings about this place. When you first walk in theres a feel of Moulin Rouge in the interior and music. Theres mismatched furniture and fun private little seating. Its very cool. But the food is a total disappointment. Ive had two desserts here with coffee and tea and neither of them were amazing. One in fact seemed... More

I do love this place. I have always had good service and when waiting outside it has never been for more than 15 minutes. The dessert is very well proportioned and always comes out in good time. I love the little booths for a special night out or a coffee date with friends. I do like variety though and have... More
