In the seven years I have lived in Adelaide I’ve had the pleasure to watch our restaurants, cafes, bars, chefs and winemakers forge relationships resulting in nothing short of world class venues. Long gone are the days when Adelaide’s dining scene didn’t rate a mention. Now, as a ‘family’, the people working in South Australian food and wine are the driving force behind some of the world’s very best.

Travel for just 20 minutes from the comfort of your CBD hotel and you can be sharing a glass with a winemaker whose wine sits in pride of place in many three Michelin starred and ‘World’s 50 Best’ restaurants around the world. Travel just a little further and you can be enjoying the produce and creativity of the chefs, producers and winemakers of McLaren Vale, Barossa and the Clare Valley, safe in the knowledge that, after a hard day’s wine tasting you can relax at one of Australia’s best restaurants, and stay overnight in anything from a swag to a Relais & Chateaux property.

That’s dining in Adelaide and South Australia. So, make sure you pack a good appetite, and let us welcome you to our tables.
