Star of Greece is located at Port Willunga, approximately 1.5 hour drive, which makes a perfect dinner or lunch place if you are on the way to McLaren Vale. The restaurant is situated at a cliff looking over turquoise water where a ship named “Star of Greece” sank in a storm while it was on its way to Britain, killed 17 men in total. York and I really think this is one of the best restaurant we have tried so far together in Australia. This may not be a fancy restaurant, but it is neat and simple and the food is spectacular.
It is my favorite time of the year again- Festival of Food Adelaide! Where top quality restaurants in South Australia have partnered up with Festival of Food, presenting well-planned 3 course meal menu at fraction of the cost. Since this year I had “no junk mail” on my mail box, I did not receive the invitation myself, however York’s parents did, we I tagged along to the first restaurant on the list- Botanic Gardens Restaurant.
Jolleys Boathouse Restaurant is an award winning restaurant situated on the banks of Torrens River in South Australia, only minutes’ walk from Adelaide CBD. Overall it is a nice contemporary modern Australian restaurant for lunch due to the nice view, relaxing atmospheres. The foods are slightly above average and services should be improved. Next time we may give dinner a try.
After our morning visit to Barossa Chateau at Lyndoch Hill, Lyndoch Bakery and The Whispering Wall at Barossa Reservoir, we finally reached our lunch destination- 1918 Bistro and Grill. This Restaurant is located in one of the major towns of Barossa Valley- Tanunda. The restaurant was a family home back in 1918, in 1992 it turned into Barossa’s first bistro and grill. It is one of the best restaurants in Barossa Valley. The food was delicious and made from fresh, local produce. The dessert was worth a mention, we would love to come back and try out more!
Cliché Exhibition is a modern French style restaurant. The interior decorations is beautiful and interesting filled with paintings. The food was cooked quite quickly and the order they came out was perfect. Although the waiting staff were extremely busy, they didn’t cut back on service. They regularly check our table, refilling our water glasses. They were also efficient at cleaning and replacing our used cutleries and plates. The food was finely made, delicious and generous in proportion especially the dish called Frickin’. It is one of the best dishes I have tasted.
