“A very nice place to eat”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

This is a very nice Restaurant, the food is of a high standard as is the attentiveness of all staff members. The menu was varied and believe it took into account a variety of special dietary requirements but best to check prior if your very particular. The atmosphere although classy does not make anyone a little under dressed feel out of place as it has a relaxing feel. Set amongst the gardens this also adds immensely to the overall experience, prices are of course reflective of the quality of food served but we felt overall they are fair and all dishes were of good portion sizes so makes it value for money. The Restaurant is within an easy walk of the major Adelaide City hotels (CBD) and made for a very nice lunch and overall day out. As the Restaurant is in the Botanic Gardens which is adjacent a huge open park land which in turn is adjacent the zoo, after enjoying your meal you have other options to make this a relaxing full day out.

“Well Worth It”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

We had a really pleasant lunch in a shady and peaceful location. The staff were attentive and the food was very well presented. Parking can be at premium if there are weddings in the gardens, so plan ahead and be ready for light exercise when the sun is shining.

“Nice restaurant for brunch”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

We came here before taking a walk through the international rose gardens and the rest of the Adelaide Botanic Gardens.
Brunch was rosti with salmon and sliced apple - well cooked and nicely presented. This is a happy restaurant which was already geared up for the busy lunchtime rush and evening wedding party. Staff gave us all the time in the world and the atmosphere was peaceful and friendly without being overbearing.
Great park to combine a walk with nice informal dining.

“Perfect for that special occaission”
Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

Having had lunch here once before, and knowing its perfect location in the heart of the beautiful gardens, this is where we chose to celebrate my mum's 70th birthday.

The staff went out of their way to look after everyone's needs, and spoiled my mother perfectly. Nothing was too much trouble.

The food was perfect, dietary needs catered for, fussy eaters assisted with respect and style. ( my family is not the easiest to please, and everyone had a good story to tell after the event as to how they were made to feel special).

I couldn't recommend this venue highly enough.
