“Taste Australia Right”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

I didn't know Australia had a distinct food style until I ate at Press*. The restaurant's decor set the tone for this cozy, fresh dining experience. My beet root salad, and slider like burger were fresh and expressive. I finished the meal off with a tasty apple dessert unlike anything I have had before. The group seating encouraged intimacy and socialization at the same time. Make some time to taste Australia.

“Enjoyable evening”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

This was a lively, bustling restaurant on Wayforth Street. Downstairs, there is communal table seating which cannot be reserved and provides for better integration with other diners but not suitable for intimacy. Upstairs can be reserved. The food was well presented and appetising. We had an excellent waitress Carolina, who even refused a tip and was exceptionally attentive and excellent at her job.

“Great way to show off SA to overseas visitors”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Beautiful food and wine complimented by exceptional staff. It was wonderful to be able to share great SA produce and wine with guests from overseas. The decor and atmosphere helped make the meal into a memorable evening.

“Great staff & venue”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

On Waymouth Street Adelaide CBD a contemporary style venue with the ground floor share tables with upstairs more formal table service.
The service is excellent – waiters know their stuff and helpful food & wine menu
Great selection of Offal for the more daring BUT a wide range of excellent options NO BYO would be nice . . .
Enjoyed the experience - thanks

“"Press" lives up to reviews”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

I was a solo dinner on a 7 week eatathon around Oz. A day earlier I was walking past Press and stopped to read it menu.........it appealed to me straight away as it seemed very innovative with matching décor.
For starters I had white Spanish anchovies with a salad of witlof, rocket and soft boiled egg with a vinegar based dressing I could of drank by the bucket load. All to be put on toast and devoured......... Absolutely delicious.
Main I had confit duck & foie gras boudin , potatoes and a watercress salad. Heaven on a plate.
Desert was bomb Alaska, which was a excellent way to end my meal. The service was very good but was a little clinical, would of liked it to be a little bit more layed back.
This was the best meal I had in my 7 week holiday around Australia.
I am back in Adelaide in November and will be back to the "press" for more taste sensations.
