“Good Food and Great Place for men in lycra”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

We had breakfast here over the long weekend. The food and coffee were good. We chose the restaurant from the others in close locality as there were a number of cyclists. These guys usually know where the coffee good coffee is being served. Its also a locals cafe which is another good indicator in an area you don't know.

Dear customer, thank you for taking the time to provide feedback!

At Europa, we always do the best with training our baristas, and keep a consistently low turn-over of staff. That's why we make the best coffee on the street, and why we placed #1 for the third year in a row in a recent newspaper publication for most preferred coffee by cyclists!

We'll see you soon!

Dear customer,

Thank you very much for taking the time to provide feedback!
We try to have an extensive breakfast menu that is incomparable to other cafes and restaurants. Next time, consider trying our delicious Spinach Crepes!

“Perfect Weekday Light Lunch, Great Food, Great Service”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Visiting Glenelg on a Friday and looking for, amongst the many options, a warm sunny spot to enjoy the weather and have something light we decided on Europa mainly because of the outdoor seating area. I am so glad we did. We were immediately looked after with a menu and drinks - the staff here are so professional - friendly and efficient without being obtrusive. Not once were we neglected during our meal. And a great spot for people watching.

We ordered the anti pasto platter - perfect for us - lots of flavours and choice and delicious hot flat bread (never enough - of course we had to order more). Reasonable price as well. Would highly recommend.

Dear customer, thankyou for providing feedback!
Our outdoor seating area appeals to a lot of customers - enjoy the warm sun while sitting down, or escape the cold of winter with the blinds pulled down and the overhead heaters keeping things warm and cosy!
One of our core virtues is making customers feel 'at home' - this means being able to relax, enjoying full table service while not feeling pestered or in a rush. We're glad that you were satisfied with the experience - try our mushroom bruschetta next time for entree, it's delicious!

“Excellent Restaurant”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

The menu was great, the food cooked to perfection, service excellent. The wine list was very good and couldn't fault anything at all. It is very well placed close to the sea and to Jetty Road, and the tram into the City is right on the doorstep. Prices very reasonable for such an excellent restaurant.

Dear customer, thankyou for your feedback!

It's excellent to hear that your experience was so pleasant, but definitely not a surprise - we're one of the few formal restaurants located on Jetty Road, so expect no less than excellent table service and food!
When you return, make sure you've tried the Linguine Al Granchio - it's essentially our signature dish, with a perfect blend of spices, pasta, and fresh crab meat!

“Good coffe and breakfast”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

We shared the outdoor dining area with a dozen or more cyclists.
The breakfast was great as was the coffee.
The waiter was very friendly and looked after our every need.
We went back for dinner a couple of nights later and whilst the food and wine was good the waiter couldn't have cared less about us.

Dear customer, thank you for the positive feedback.
It's definitely a rush most mornings - after being rated #1 for cyclists in Adelaide for the third year in a row, we definitely make plenty of coffee for riders from all over Adelaide.
We're disappointed about your return experience - if there is ever any issues, please feel free to let us know; our priority is customer satisfaction, and it's imperative that you walk out the door with a smile on your face!
