5 Awesome New Restaurant Openings In Adelaide

It’s no secret that Adelaide is already blessed with so many great chefs and restaurants. Plus there are the amazing wineries, beaches, festivals… it’s almost unfair really. But we’re here today to talk to you about food and how excited we are about these awesome new restaurant additions joining the illustrious club of the Adelaide scene.

Mr Goodbar


Mr Goodbar has only been open for a few months, but it’s already the small bar in Adelaide to be seen drinking at. With its hip, soulful, and tongue-in-cheek vibe, Mr Goodbar will keep you well fed, hydrated and entertained all night long. A relatively small(ish), but carefully selected drinks list includes some fantastic boutique beers, wicked cocktails that aren’t going to set you back a small fortune, and a few very worthwhile bottled cocktails. Be sure to pay your respects to the shrine set up for the patron saint of bartenders, Saint Amand, on your way to the bar too.

“Mr Goodbar is class all the way – from the greeting at the front door, to the greeting upstairs, to the table service. Great selection of spirits. Good food menu. Fantastic fit out.” – 4chillis

Miss 5048


If coffee is your (not so) secret obsession, Miss 5048 is just what you need. Just a few blocks from the beach, this health-conscious haven for clean eating promises great things on the coffee front with different beans being rotated every few weeks. Besides the java, there’s an exceptionally tasty range ofraw cakes, protein balls, a delicious chia pudding with Greek yoghurt, vegan smoothies and plenty of organic and gluten-free options. With food this scrumptious, you won’t even notice it’s good for you!

Peter Rabbit


In the least likely of locations (next door to a power station, and inside a shipping container), there blooms something quite magical. Peter Rabbit’s intimate, homey feel and rustic-industrial (or ‘indrustical’, as we have just now coined it) décor makes way for a great spot for a cosy drink and decent eats. While their shipping container doors have been open since the end of last year, the team are consistently keeping things fresh and interesting with new seasonal dishes while the staples remain true to the dedicated regulars. And, of course, so that Peter Rabbit doesn’t get too lonely, there are also two resident pet rabbits on site – Flopsy and Mopsy.

Henry Austin


The newly-opened Henry Austin brings a new dining concept to Adelaide. Inspired by a restaurant in San Francisco, the establishment will be showcasing Australian, native and local produce in small and large dishes that are brought around the restaurant (much like yum cha except without the dumplings). The menu will be constantly changing and dependent upon the freshest ingredients from local suppliers as well as foraged native ingredients found by the chef and kitchen team. At Henry Austin, every day will be a new adventure in fine dining.

Lost in a Forest


Inside an unsuspecting 130-year-old stone church, a new venture springs in the Adelaide Hills. Using the original doors and pews, reclaimed timber, and tables made of old “dunny doors”, the quirky Lost in a Forest is a pizza place and wine lounge like no other. Picking ingredients from the owner’s personal garden and from the local pine forest, some interesting pizza combinations will be rolling out of the kitchen. Barrels growing fresh herbs are available also for customers to get involved in personalising their own meal and, given that the owner is also a local winemaker, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to the local wine selection.
