Red Ochre Grill is proud to present… emu, crocodile and pavlova! Holy clapsticks! That’s enough Aussieness to knock the hairs off a wombat’s nose, and it’s just a tiny taster of the delectable menu on offer at this beautiful waterfront restaurant. Find out more
“Our entrees of pork rillettes and ceviche were delicious as were our mains of lamb and steak. We ordered a salad off the specials – fig, candied walnut, radicchio, emu prosciutto and blue cheese dressing – it was sensational (the emu prosciutto was amazing). However, there was a distinct lack of candied walnuts on the plate. We were too full for dessert but they looked great. I think we will be returning in the future.” – Kelly T
As well as boasting Adelaide’s finest schnitty, The Earl of Leicester is also known for its exclusive ‘Beer Legends Club’.

This cute bakery offers a delicious menu of crusty, flaky, buttery, pastry pies with classic and modern creative flavors, I wish I could have tried the whole range!

Very yummy cakes, unique blend of classic European and modern Aussie, I can wholly recommend the “Belgian chocolate & Hazelnut mousse tart”. – Shazzam!
