Shadowboxer Bar & Kitchen
We are proud to offer you an exclusively Australian wine list showcasing local winemakers and growers. Our seasonal food menu is flexible for traditional 2/3 course dining or sharing amongst friends. When it comes to cocktails, hell, we like making them almost as much as drinking them. Our cocktails incorporate Australian boutique distillers and we keep it simple. We strive to support sustainable companies that produce quality flavours.
Set within an original terrace house built in 1895, Shadowboxer is a relaxed yet refined space with a sunny two tiered terrace out front, and two dining spaces inside with banquette seating.
Engaging and helpful waitstaff. We were in on a weekday so we availed of the bottomless cocktail deal, which is certainly worth it.
To match this the food was unique and delectable, the flavours and ingredients complimented each other delightfully and the presentation was striking.
Yer no probs at all ,we moved seats from inside to the outside ones and that was beter for us we could sit next to each other.
Service was great, food was delicious. Food presentation left something to be desired. Otherwise a fantastic dining experience. Wine list is extensive and servers are knowledgeable.
The service offered at Shadowboxer was outstanding. I was comfortable, staff were friendly, food was amazing and the music was really good.
Everyone was so accommodating! I’m gluten free (Ceoliac) and the staff were happy to assist adjusting and letting me know of menu options. They have a serpente fryer which is a bonus, meaning unlike many other restaurants, I was able have chips.
Great service! Easy menu with delicious food and fantastic wine list.
Best service in town and lovely atmosphere. Unfortunately let down by bland food that looks spectacular but tastes very average. Season your food pls!
we popped over from a movie at Cinema Como having heard good reports. we were delighted with the food, the texture, taste and presentation. the team could not have been more friendly or helpful....drinks list for all...we had the Adelaide Hills Blanc de Blanc to support those in that area effected by the bushfires...delicious sparking wine.
We have eaten here many times, the food and service is always excellent.
The owners really care about their customers.
Try their own Negroni recipe amazing.
Hey Barb, Thank you so much for your continued support! It's always lovely to have you in and bringing in new friends! And yes... that negroni! Killer! Glad you enjoy and very happy to have you in!
Great experience- lovely waiter, and the food and wine were great. Best meal I’ve had in some time. We shared a barramundi and lambs neck - both perfectly cooked and great flavours. Only complaint was I found it really noisy inside so sat outside.
They have the best Barramundi I have ever eaten and they also have great service.
Hi Aaron, Thanks so much for the great review! We get a lot of very positive feedback on our barramundi, and a re very glad you enjoyed it, as well as the service. Looking forward to seeing you again soon!
Awesome place - cannot recommend enough. Great food, fantastic service. Just go & enjoy!
