At press*, we bring the best products from our patch of the earth to the table, and have fun doing it. Our kitchen is open all day for a quick bite to eat, or to settle in for a few hours. Bookings are taken for our upstairs loft area (walk-ins are welcome downstairs).

Was charged for still water - who charges for still water??? And they charged for two bottles at $6 per bottle when we only had one. And they charged for bread, which we didn't ask for. Very average.

The tasting menu was thoughtfully constructed and beautifully executed. Supported by a broad enough wine list to satisfy the most demanding palate.

We had the tasting menu, excellent selection and variety of food, plenty of it. Tasty and original, service that wasn't rushed or insistent. A really excellent meal and experience.

The pork buns were delicious, as was my lamb dish, but the pigs ears needed to be crunchier! We made a booking, which meant we were put upstairs - the ambience was better downstairs and given it was a quiet Tuesday lunch, it would’ve been better to be downstairs.

I had the opportunity to eat dinner at several restaurants while in Adelaide and this one was disappointing. Service was great, wine was excellent, but the food was over-salted and over-spiced.

Great food generally and a very cluey waiter. Gave a 4 star not 5 as my Coorong Mulloway was very salty (oversalted!). Other people had it too but their fish was OK. Also the lighting is far too dim. We were unable to read our menus. Either the menus need to be printed in bold or the lights turned up. Overall a good night.

Our first time dining at Press and we weren’t disappointed. We left our choices in the hands of the chef, and chose the $75 feed me menu.

Every dish that came out was perfect! We still can’t believe how good the mashed potato was!

Definitely recommend and we will be back!

Our server (Cameron?) was fantastic too!

Thanks for a great birthday dinner :)

We absolutely love Press!!
I catch up with my girlfriends here ever May (4th year and counting) and they never disappoint. Super accommodating to dietary requirements as one of us is always pregnant and the vegetarian food is always delicious. We always chose the feed me menu and amazing food always arrives.
See you next May Press.

Everything was wonderful. The beef tartare was different than any I've had before and it was delicious. My snapper was cooked perfectly and the potato mash was smooth, creamy and amazing. My husband's steak frites dinner was beautiful. Wish I lived there so I could go more often!

We had a table upstairs and ordered the smoked fish entree, the Uraidla chicken, and the fish of the day (snapper) with some sides. Although the meals were a little pricey, the food was delicious and the dishes were all quite generous sizes. The brussel sprouts were a little undercooked and tough to cut into but were still very tasty. The atmosphere upstairs was relaxing and although it was busy, it still felt intimate. I took a star off because it was a bit cold and I had to keep my winter coat on throughout the evening. We were served by Mel, who was lovely and very attentive.

We enjoyed our experience in general. Staff were lovely and helpful.
Food was really lovely but noise level did get high when the place filled up. Not sure there’s much you can do about that given the acoustics of the building.
In general we were pretty happy with it.

We went for Saturday lunch and chose Press because it was one of the few restaurants open for lunch on Saturday in Adelaide. We (a table of four) were the only customers in the restaurant. Nonetheless the food was fantastic. In particular the Coorong snapper, which was succulent and tasty, served with creamy mash, brussel sprouts and pancetta (for the meat-eaters among us). We also ordered the chilli crab pasta, which was excellent - though I think we all coveted the snapper once it arrived. Service was friendly, efficient and we had good advice about wines, and an informative discussion about various Barossa wines - two of us had just come back from a week there. I'm new to Adelaide and am very happy to have discovered Press. I'll certainly be back!

I usually have great meals at Press, this time however was different. The restaurant was pretty empty yet we had to keep flagging down the waitress for everything. The service was pretty terrible, we had wine spilled on the tablecloth before our clients arrived and no effort was made to clean it up. She did recommend some great entrees for us to share but the service overall was not good.
Three of us had the crab pasta which came out lukewarm and was quite tasteless, too much pasta and not enough crab. There didn’t seem to be any chilli in mine, it was very bland.
I still give Press an overall score of 3 based on previous experience as well and hope it was a one-off.
