Restaurants in Adelaide

Adelaide has some very good restaurants
Expats are spoiled for choice in this South Australian city when it comes to delicious dining options. Though foodies are only now taking advantage of local secrets such as the authentic Asian of Gouger Street and the old-school Italian of the Botanic, Adelaide has long harboured a healthy culinary scene.

Even if an expat manages to exhaust their city-based options, it’s only a tram ride away to the seaside suburb of Glenelg or the nearby Adelaide Hills where succulent scallops and well-hidden winery restaurants will give them the very change of pace and palette they were after.
