“Wonderful Venue covering many Interests”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

The restaurant provides excellent Food at a price that tends not to be too excessive.

Some Dishes are costly (for no apparent reason) but on the whole you can cherry pick the menu and fill up without needing a bank loan.

Most of the Live shows are top class and the Accoustics within the Centre are good. There are small theatres as well and many smaller shows and entertainment ideas are on at the same time so you are able to select at most times.

“Very good function venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

We had dinner here last night whilst attending a function and were pleasantly surprised. The function venue was fully accessible and had a great view of the Torrens River. The food was well cooked and not too rich. The acoustics were very good too. All in all, a great choice for a function venue.

“BEST FUN I HAVE HAD”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

If you are going to Adelaide you should go to the festival as there are not that many things to see and do, l arrived in Adelaide on the Friday night and by Sunday the day l was leaving, i had seen everything and done everything. l really enjoyed the performances and it was a great atmospher. Would highly recomend.

“Not as famous as Sydney Opera house but still excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

Adelaide Festival Centre was built and inaugurated 3 months before its much more famous cousin the Sydney Opera House. It was built within 3 years for a mere $10 million compared to the Sydney opera House that cost over 10 times as much and took over 15 years. Unlike the Opera House, the acoustics of this performance venue are excellent. The Festival centre is very conveniently located and very accessible.

“We had a great night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

Only had 1 experience the other night for 2001: Space Odyssey and absolutely loved it.
We booked far enough to get great seats so we didn't see the problems others have mentioned.
Actually flew to Adelaide from Sydney for this performance as the only seats offered at home were on the end seats with limited viewing so we were absolutely thrilled with both the performance and the Centre itself.
