Panoramic views of Adelaide's foothills and city, combined with old-school silver service and generous locally sourced dishes make this a memorable dining experience. Pork belly is a highlight; sweet flesh contrasted nicely with a kimchi slaw of carrot, wombok and sesame on a smooth potato mash. Justin Miles's take on surf 'n' turf brings together tasty pieces of wagyu rib and just-seared scallop; snapper, too, is expertly cooked, but a salad of diced tomato adds little to the dish. There's plenty of flavour in a richly glazed confit duck leg with cumin-heavy pumpkin mash; the same cannot be said, however, of a lacklustre poached peach in a dish crowded with raspberry sorbet and amaretti. Plump instead for an almost-savoury Earl Grey panna cotta offset by jammy figs and salty-sweet caramelised walnuts. The wine list is a little on the safe side, its emphasis firmly on South Australia.
