We had some friends from Queensland down for the week and wanted to take them for a drive along the beaches to a good pub for lunch and the Victory was the perfect choice. We ordered a bottle of good Barossa red while we perused the menu and daily specials board which were both extensive and interesting. We had fish,... More

The view from Victoria Hotel Restaurant is amazing.... we were there at night and could see the lights around us. For starters: antipasti with chorizo, feta, pickled vegetables, salami, Parma ham, olives and toasted bread with olive oil, roasted squid and warm chickpea salad with grapefruit, fennel, melon green salad. The food here is simply amazing! The kitchen closes at... More

Very impressed on our visit today. While all the pub grub selections you would expect to find on the menu you will also find selections find in an up market restaurant, plus a great range of specials. We chose from the specials board and enjoyed a perfectly cooked medium rare sirloin with delightful accompaniments, avoiding the need to order a... More

Hi peter F, Thanks for your kind words. We are a "pub" in the true sense, and we always will be. But we have a fantastic, loyal, local population in Sellicks Beach that look at us not only as their local pub, but as the only place within 10km where they can come for a meal. Whether it be a...

The steak Special displayed was well below the expected standard of this historic dining venue. Gristle does not equate or warrant the prices charged. Staff polite but disinterested in our feedback. I hope this constructive criticism helps.

We had a really enjoyable evening here. The chef on the night went out of his way to cater for one of our party with food allergies, producing really appetising and well presented dishes. The scallops, snapper and belly pork were all delicious. Service was friendly and efficient. We will definitely return next time we are in the area.

When We have family or friends staying, we always have a beautiful meal here. Summer is best for the sunset and Sellicks Beach views, but in Winter you have the spectacular weather fronts over the sea and there are always twinkling lights of homes at night. Service is always friendly and attentive. We had the dips and antipasto plate between... More

Dear samarshall77 Thanks for your kind words. When I moved into the Victory Hotel 25 years ago, it was in the middle of winter. I would watch the spectacular storms come in and think how lucky I was being the custodian of one of South Australia's most stunningly located, historic hotels. Reviews like yours make me think I made the... More

Lived in Adelaide all of my life and have driven past this place many times when heading south but this was my first visit. Dined on a cold and miserable day with drizzling rain so the famous view was absent but this was more than made up for by the balance of the day. Food was excellent-- loved my pork... More

So glad we booked. Friday lunch was very popular and everyone appeared happy. And why not. We decided to eat from both the Menu and the Daily Recommendation Board. Local Calamari ( minus the Chilli) was generous and hit the spot. The Coopers Stout Pie served atop of Braised Chick peas and Broccoli AND wonderful homemade pastry was the ideal... More
