Proof

Located in an alleyway on Anster Street, Proof is situated in a unassuming double storey building. The decor here is full of character and old world charm. The dim lighting, the golden reflective ceiling, the tie wearing chefs and the waistcoat wearing bartenders, really gave the feeling I was in a late 19th century English…

Alfresco On Rundle

It’s a bit of a catch 22 when you want to go out for dinner, with a large group on a Friday night, and you haven’t made a booking, particularly in the busy Rundle Street cafe precinct. While wandering around aimlessly, we discovered that Alfresco’s was able to accommodate us, however, the number of empty…

Etica Ethical Pizzeria & Mozzarella Bar

When a pizzeria advertises they use “organic” vegetables, you know you’re going to be paying a lot. When they also say the meat they put on the pizza has been farmed using “ethical” practices, you might as well hand over your wallet. What was once a dental practice on Gilles Street, is now home to…

Hotel Richmond

I’ve been to the Hotel Richmond on many occasions, mainly for drinks. While walking through the Mall, I noticed they had lunch specials on, so I felt this was the perfect opportunity to taste what they have to offer. The thing I love about the Richmond is the grandness of the place which is accentuated…

Over the years, I’ve been coming to the Archer for all sorts of reasons. I’ve come here to drink. I’ve come here to dance. I’ve come here to drown my sorrows. I’ve even celebrated my birthday here. Today, I’m here for the $10 Chicken Parmi. The Archer is a popular venue. Located on the busy…

Woolshed On Hindley

While thinking about where to go for lunch, a coworker suggested the Woolshed because they had meals for a reasonable price. First impressions of the place weren’t that great. The tables and chairs in the outside dining area were covered in alcohol residue, and the inside of the place was dark and dingy. The place…
