Star of Greece

It might be a simple shack perched atop Port Willunga's dramatic sandstone cliffs, but the Star of Greece offers more than just flash fish and chips against an idyllic coastal backdrop. Seafood is the core of the menu, with pan-fried calamari strips and beer-battered King George whiting fillets remaining longtime favourites. Barramundi fillet gets a tropical lift from green mango chutney, while flame-grilled Spencer Gulf prawns are given the Mexican treatment, with chipotle-laced salsa and smoky corn. There are rewards beyond the seafood: lamb backstrap has deep, satisfying richness, sparked by whipped hummus and sumac. Desserts favour local fruits in season, such as strawberry and rhubarb pavlova, raspberries with hazelnut chocolate and white peach trifle with olive oil ice-cream. Champagnes and Burgundies add flair to a list of fine McLaren Vale wines, served with a smile by an efficient floor staff.
