    Fruit de mer plate absolutely sensational a refined version of what you get when you swallow sea water by accident. Chocolate and fig dessert delicate and showcasing the ingredients without being overpowering . Wine matching very on point. Service attentive sommeliers very knowledgeable and passionate. All in all an experience well worth the price and a meal that will stay in the memories for a long time…

    Great food and wine. Beautiful views. The only feedback would be that there was a very long wait between our courses.

    The high tea was fantastic. Chef prepared savouries and sweets, the lemonade scones were to die for.

    Sommelier was knowledgeable. Food was good. Service was good but did expect more of a greeting and it was disappointing we were served the first course before drinks had been ordered. I’d suggest if this is the approach a welcome drink should be given. It felt very rushed. For a premium dinner like this I’d also expect hand towels or a hand sanitation station. Still a nice experience but overpriced and lacking some of the luxuries of other high end tasting/degustation restaurants in Adelaide.

    We enjoyed the experience. I think a handrail needs to be introduced into the stone steps leading down to the brick footpath to the carpark. It was very dangerous last evening in the dark and this needs to be fixed.

    Hardys is a stunning venue with which we have close ties to. This historic summer house residence cannot be faulted. Unfortunately, the Valentine’s Day dining was a very rushed experience, so much so that we requested some breaks between courses so as to enjoy a more relaxed experience. We lost count of how many people served us. Just far too many. There were so many waiters/waitresses that when we entered the dining area there were two different people talking to us! It was our 20th wedding anniversary, and unfortunately this valentines dinner felt like every other one we have tried to celebrate; rushed, mechanical, impersonal. Though all the service staff were polite, there were just too many of them. It was a rather expensive price tag for an experience which just didn’t match. I’m sure it’s not always like this, it’s just that it was Valentine’s Day (and our wedding anniversary), and it seems to be like this everywhere, no matter how much you pay. Sorry Hardys, we love you, but Feb 14th was a let down 😔
