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).

As always food and service were top rate. Food is interesting and flavorsome; service was efficient, friendly and unobtrusive. Eclectic wine list with price points for all budgets.

Had the $75 pp menu.
There really wasn't much food for the 4 of us - we unfortunately left hungry.
Being served 3 small desserts for the 4 of us was disappointing.
Don't think we received value for money.
The service was excellent however.

I was not impressed with the quality of some of the food - the potatoes were way overdone, the pork was cold.I was expecting much better so disappoint considering I was entertaining a party of 10 and some of them foreign visitors.

Beautifully presented food in a great setting. It was a hot night and was disappointed we were served water at the temperature it came out of the tap. Despite requesting some cold water.

Lovely food & atmosphere. Enjoyed the tasting menu with clients.
The only downer was the lack of being able to select upstairs dining in the both.
While the bench seats are social - I would have preferred booths :)
Otherwise loved the food & venue.

Food was excellent. Every dish served was a very high standard, quality and most importantly, delicious. The crab pasta was like nothing we've had before. The fish of the day was amazing, the steak and fries was spot on and the chargrilled squid was done to perfection. We definitely would go back.

This is a nice buzzy restaurant. The food was good. A little on the pricey side and not sure why they cut your meat up when it’s presenued to you but it was delicious nonetheless. The waiter was very efficient but always seemed in a rush to get away. On the whole, a very nice restaurant.

First off, our service staff were wonderful.
We had the full tasting menu. The terrine had little flavour, the burnt broccoli was gritty with charcoal that tasted like the pan it was cooked on was losing the coating on it, giving it an old, over used, burnt teflon-plastic flavour. The sweetbreads/peach had hard grit in it, possibly from peach stone, that I had to pick out of my mouth to avoid breaking a tooth. The lamb fat was not rendered well enough and it was jelly-fat. The meat was quite rare and very chewy, perhaps cut on the wrong grain, even cutting it was difficult as it was super-elastic and flung items of my plate onto the table.
The salad, the pork, the rosemary potatoes and the dessert were the only enjoyable items. However, one shared dessert? no matter how delicious...On the example menu it suggested two different desserts would be offered, and we were looking forward to tasting two after such a savoury meal.
The bill came to $183, with two peppermint teas, two proseccos and the $75 per person. I feel for the flavour, quality and the ratio of good:bad, this was quite expensive.

Fusion, modern cuisine with lovely balanced flavours, textures and fresh ingredients. We went for the 'feed me' option and were not disappointed. All dishes/course were served in a relaxed help yourself fashion, allowing for a carefree dining experience. Service was attentive, friendly and informative. Really can't find fault with our night out or see any hint of this Adelaide icon losing its magic. "Do yourself a favour..."

I think the food was exceptional. We had the luncheon tasting menu and it was value for money as we were provided with a range of dishes with adequate servings for a 3-course meal. The only downside was that it took a while for the server to take our drink orders and it took a while to bring the drinks out. We didn’t even get complimentary bread for the table whereas the tables next to us did.

The food was delicious. The individual elements of each dishes complemented the overall taste really well. Food came out nice and quick. Only complaint was it took a long time to get the attention of a wait staff in order to ask for the bill, even though it was not busy.

Warm and welcoming by front of house. Good atmosphere and friendly professional waitress. A menu that appealed as I love offal but also catered well to general appetite. Appreciated wine by the glass as our tastes within the group varied. A most pleasant and rewarding dining experience.

Really enjoyed the food here and good value for money. Pity only the downstairs section was open for the festive period which meant we were seated at the bench overlooking everyone in the restaurant. The only negative I can mention was that the restaurant seemed understaffed and when we asked for the bill they said they would bring it over but when they didn’t we went up to be told to sit down again and they would bring it. About 3 minutes before us another table had gone up to pay so we were very annoyed at being told to sit down again. Let us pay and leave please!!

Authentic and loved food, amazing delicate morsels to savour and appreciate knowing the hard work put in to deliver. Recommend the raw menu and offal menu - both delightful , fresh and creative. Careful thought out flavours are received through the courses, all different and leaving you wanting more. We will certainly be back to try the rest of the menu plus extras! A surprising find tucked away in adelaide.

Disappointed, we were forced to have the tasting menu which we have had before. His was not what we wanted on this occasion though. I appreciate the time of year is more challenging but the restaurant trade isn’t easy... shouldn’t force menus on customers without prior warning!

I have lost count of the number of times that I have dined at *Press but I can easily recall the fact that every time has been excellent. This time was another business meeting over lunch, there have been many dinners and one of our annual staff Christmas lunches. The vibrant atmosphere and attentive service are a great compliment to the evolving menu and well curated wine list. Highly recommended.
