Europa is a popular venue at Glenelg. Front of house service is very good, but that is where it ends I am afraid. Coffee acceptable but no more. My poached eggs on toast very very poor, eggs scruffy on one piece of commercial sliced bread barely toasted, other breakfasts I saw had been served with great continental bread......perhaps it's me....

We attended as a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids aged 2 & 5). We arrived at 6.15pm ish. The indoor section was full so we sat outside under heaters. We (perhaps naively) thought that our meals would be quick as we were only ordering pizza and pasta. We waited over 50 minutes for meals to come out after... More

Visited with a groupon voucher. Pleasant waiters and good service. Food platter was unusual and too many different flavours and textures to really enjoy. The pork belly and poached fish were tasty, but the duck was dry, the calamari too chewy and the Morton Bay bugs a bit tasteless. I found the set white wine too dry but my partner... More

We went there last night for a special occasion. The restaurant locates in great location and the staffs were friendly. However the service was really slow, the restaurant was not busy at that time but we have to wait 45 minutes for our meals to come out. The food presentation was quite nice but the quality was not there. The... More

We dined at the Europa Cafe for a birthday event. I am pleased to report this was one of my best dining experiences for a long time. The menu was very different and enjoyable. The food was great, the staff very attentive and knowledgeable and all for a very reasonable dollar.

We chose this restaurant as our brother often mentioned it when we visited from the UK but we had never actually been. The first time we went it was mid afternoon and we were pretty much the last diners before they closed for dining. The food was superb and at no time were we rushed, we explained why we were...

We walked all around the bay looking at restaurants, and eventually came back here. The welcome was very friendly and we were seated promptly and given menus and water. Our orders were made and we chose from the excellent wine list. Food was brought out promptly and was very good, fritti de gnocchi and a pizza. We were well satisfied... More

We booked in for brunch because this place is popular. The wait staff are warm and friendly, dont rush you to order and dont push you to finish ... We had a leisurely brunch, caught up with friends, and noticed that the outside tables are puppy dog friendly as well. I had a ham and cheese croissant, friend had ham... More
