Bottle Shops Adelaide, SAGreat for a platter and a glass of wine. We very much enjoyed our charcuterie platter and glass of wine here. Nice atmosphere and as a bonus, you can buy the the wine that you like to take home!
Restaurants Croydon, SAVery small but neat and clean. We orders the manto (dumplings) which were delicious. The bolani was also really tasty and a very decent serve for the price. Can't wait to return and try a skewer.
Dairy Products Angaston, SASooooooooo good!! The cheeses are all delicious and they have a great variety. of course you can also get all the cheese related accompaniments that you need as well as cheese accessories. well worth a visit if you are in the area.
Farmers Market Angaston, SAStart with a bacon and egg roll and go from there. a great place to try local goodies and speak to the people that make them. since my last visit producers from other areas of the state seem to have crept in too but hey, it's all SA right? 7.30am - 11.30am and they sell out so make sure you get there early.
Breweries Tanunda, SAService needs work. maybe they need more people? the place was busy on friday night and the staff seemed overwhelmed and confused. one person seemed to know what was going on but she also was trying to do everything. we just wanted beers and waited quite a while to get those. people at the tables around us seemed to be waiting a long time for their food orders.
Dairy Products Penneshaw, SAA must see. The tour is great, you learn exactly how the products are made - naturally. You see how the animals are treated - with love. Plenty of tastings. You will come away with cheese, yoghurt and smallgoods.
Vineyards & Wineries Penneshaw, SAGreat views and nice wines. The views are amazing - it is a great spot for a glass of wine on the deck. They do platters if you are hungry. The wines are good, a small but good range.
Bed & Breakfast Greenock, SAThis was a last minute booking and I was intrigued to stay in a place with some history. We were delighted with what we found when we opened the door - a gorgeous cottage with everything that we needed. We slept in the Queen bedroom and had no noise issues and it was a very comfortable sleep. The step-by-step instructions for lighting the fire ensured that we had a long lasting and warm fire. The spa was lovely to soak in. The breakfast provisions were enough for us. Greenock Tavern is a short walk down the road as is Kalleske's new cellar door. The included wifi was a nice touch.
Restaurants Seppeltsfield, SAFino at Seppeltsfield is the restaurant in this gorgeous winery. We loved Fino at Willunga so during our Barossa stay we couldn't resist giving Fino at Seppeltsfield a try. The Seppeltsfield complex is gorgeous and Fino fits in well. As expected the service was exemplary as was the food. Everything that we had was delicious. A superb way to spend an afternoon.
Campgrounds & Caravan Parks Crystal Brook, SAThe caravan park is just on the edge of town (less than a 10 minute walk to the town centre). The cabins are well maintained and spotlessly clean. They have excellent heating and shower pressure with updated TVs and fridges. The beds have enough blankets to keep you warm without having the heater on. The caretakers are friendly, helpful and welcoming.
Bed & Breakfast Mclaren Vale, SAKay was the ultimate host from the moment we made the booking. We stayed in the studio which was perfect Mclaren Vale accommodation for two people. It had everything that we needed and was gorgeous. Included in the very reasonable rate were generous continental breakfast provisions. Great location. Can highly recommend.
Restaurants Mclaren Vale, SAOne of my favourite places for a long, winey lunch. The food is consistently excellent. They have al a carte option or a degustation option. I've only ever gone with the degustation option with the matched wines. The service is always 100% professional and you could have multiple people looking after you without noticing it. Lovely setting. Never disappointed by the food but I always have my fingers crossed that the passionfruit souffle is on the menu.
Restaurants Adelaide, SANice, casual atmosphere. The pho seemed better than my last visit but there are others that I prefer not far away. The tall bowls make it hard to get to the bottom. The spring roll bites were great - little parcels of deliciousness.
Restaurants Adelaide, SAI'd heard great things about Borsa Pasta Cucina and it exceeded my expectations. Even though they were flat out busy the staff were all friendly and happy. We sat at the bar at the back and I was worried that we were going to be overlooked however, hats off to Olivia, we were well looked after. The timing of everything was perfect. They were happy to put a different sauce on my gnocchi and my friend is a coeliac but this was no problems - Olivia happily explained the gluten free options and they even had gluten free bread so that she didn't have to miss out. This is now my new favourite gnocchi place. The serving sizes were excellent and you can't question the value for money. Olivia's service was so good we didn't even have to ask for the bill, she got the vibe that we needed to get back to work and the bill was there.
Takeaways Adelaide, SAI was intrigued by the rice burger and, being a chicken place, went with the crispy chicken filling. It came with rice patties that were nice and crunchy on the outside - just like those burnt rice bits that everyone loves on the bottom of an asian rice claypot. The crispy chicken was crispy, juicy and had good seasoning so there was plenty of taste. It was messy to eat as the rice patties are not as sturdy as bread but for something different I would recommend.
Sewing & Alterations Adelaide, SAQuick, easy, no fuss. My hem needed re-stitching and they had it ready for me the same day. The price wasn't outrageous either. I also needed a skirt re-lined and they made sure that I understood exactly how much it was going to cost and gave me options to consider.
Caterers Adelaide, SAHains and Co is one of my go to bars. And luckily me for me yesterday, it was one of the few small bars open on a Monday afternoon! The staff here are always amazing - very friendly and helpful. Always ready to suggest something new or help you narrow down the huge range of choices available.
