Located in the heart of the CBD in Adelaide's West End, Press* aims to bring the best products from our patch of the earth to the table and to have fun doing it.

Our menu, created by chef Andrew Davies, reflects the changing seasons and incredible products available in South Australia. Our custom char-grill is an integral part of the kitchen & is reflected in our menu. Don't miss our classic dishes such as Steak Frites, Blue-swimmer Crab Pappardelle, our famous Press* Burger, as well as our speciality, suckling pig.

Over two unique levels, Press* is ideal for intimate dinners, tailored functions and corporate lunches.
Press* is the perfect option for a pre-show dinner before heading to Her Majesty's or The Festival Theatre, The Adelaide Townhall or catching a game at Adelaide Oval.

We look forward to welcoming you to Press soon!

                              I ate early on a stool on the ground floor, being alone. If it is busy it may have more ambiance but not when it was so early. Food and service were great. My best meal, the first time having the tasting menu, at Press* out of 4 or 5 times there.

                              Food quality and value are really good. The only comment which I also made on the day was about the big gap between the starters and main food. We had our clients for a limited time and there was more than 30minutes gap between the starters and main food, so some of our clients had to leave before the main food came in, and some early after the main came in. It is important to keep the feed me menu continuous so we can plan for our time.

                              Have dined with Press on many occasions and they are always top notch. The food is eclectic, the service is delightful and the value is amazing. Highlights were the steak main and the smoked fish entree. The feed me lunch menu is worth the mystery!

                              We were throughly imPRESS*ed!!! Tasty food, great balance of seasoning and fresh produce that really showcased and brought taste to the fore. The only bit of let down, if we could have called it that, was that the fried chicken that we had was still ever slightly pink. I didn’t quite mind it, but I know that two in our party didn’t quite enjoy that. However, everything else was top notch!!! We would definitely return, but wife said that we should have perhaps asked for the chicken to be more cooked next time

                              The food was good, but the waiter brought out the wrong dish (we ordered minute steak but they brought out steak frites) Other than that, we had to wait an hour for the steak to come out

                              We celebrated my friends 21st birthday last night, and it was amazing! The upstairs is absolutely divine and very visually appealing - not to mention, the seating was very comfortable. The food was fabulous, as well as the cocktails. What really topped off the experience was our waiter, Luca. He was incredibly kind, fun, accommodating and knowledgeable. He also tended to our dietary requirements carefully, which eased our minds so much! Thank you Luca and thank you Press* for a wonderful experience! We look forward to coming back, soon!

                              The food was lovely. Our only issue was that 3 things we asked for were sold out! That’s the way it goes but it would have been totally faultless if everything that was offered in the menu had been available. Will definitely go back

                              Pros: The service was great! The flavours of all the food were good. Cons: It was abit too cold upstairs - all the fans were on high which was strange as it was freezing outside, making the entire experience uncomfortable. The mains were cold, which was very disappointing. I probably wouldn’t come back.

                              At press* food and wine, we operate on two levels. All event bookings are taken for our first floor restaurant. This loft style space is flooded with natural light, features plush booths and tables; exposed beams and raw brick all set an inviting scene for an intimate get together, or a feast for a crowd. The food at press* is designed to suit shared dining. We feel this shared approach to eating enhances the sense of occasion that brings a large group of people together around one table. Function and events package available via website.
