Red Ochre Grill – Festival of Food 2013

Red Ochre is a modern Australian fine dining restaurant located right on the banks of the River Torrens. The place is located upstairs and has magnificent views of the river and the city skyline. The decor is simple yet elegant. The use of natural timber makes this place so Australian. I love the floor to…

Botanic Gardens Restaurant – Festival of Food 2013

If you’ve never been to the Botanic Gardens before, this restaurant may be hard to find. Thankfully, they have large maps at each entrance that tell you where you are, and where the restaurant is. With such beautiful surroundings, having a fine dining restaurant within the gardens just makes perfect sense. The place itself specialises…

Austral Hotel

I’ve been to the Austral so many times and yet I haven’t reviewed it! The Austral just brings back so many pleasant memories, right back to when I was at university. The drunken nights, the pub crawls, the hearty meals and the live music are what makes this place so special. I even managed to…

The cleanliness at this place is certainly questionable. Each time I’ve eaten at this place, the dining table has always been…

BB Steak House

BB Steak House is a takeaway store in the Southern Cross Arcade that specialises in Korean meat dishes. The chef used to work for a five star hotel which appears to be one of their selling points for eating here. There’s less than a dozen things to choose from on their menu, but the sound…

Mandoo

I’ve been to Mandoo several times and I must say their dumplings are pretty good. Located in a small store on Bank Street, the place is always packed at lunch time. With what appears to be a family run business, the staff are warm and inviting and it’s impressive to see the dumplings made in…
