Some hotels and restaurants love to boast about the quality of their food and service. Some crave the critic’s rave review. At The Playford, we’d like to think that our fine qualities speak for themselves. But we don’t mind at all, when our customers decide to express their experiences in their own words.

“One of the best in Adelaide”

We enjoyed our evening at The Playford – it was just perfect from beginning to end. Firstly, the atmosphere of the restaurant is completely different to others here in Adelaide. The great staff are very professional. We were served quickly and provided with all special offers and I got my own menu with all gluten free options. The food was perfect. I think I had the best oysters of my entire life at this place! Starters and mains were no less exciting. Every meal was decorated nicely with flowers and my kangaroo fillet was cooked to perfection. Our waiter was very alert and we never lacked water, wine or anything else. Overall, there was nothing to complain about.

“Fine, elegant dining”

As house guests – not keen on braving the drizzly evening we decided to try the hotel restaurant. With no booking on a busy Friday night, we were given the option of dining at 6.30 or 8pm. We opted for the early time and were immediately shown to our table. Water, menus and specials were explained all very efficiently and faultlessly. Our young waitress was excellent. The menu is broad and showcases fresh local produce. Our choices did not disappoint.

For starters, I had fresh delicious green salad, light and vibrant. My husband had the scallops and declared them to be perfection on a plate. Then I had the pork belly entrée as my main course. It was absolute perfection – I could have licked the plate! My husband had the chef’s special, barramundi, again well cooked and beautifully served.

We shared steamed greens – yum! This is a fine dining restaurant of the highest standard. We are so pleased we tried it. Highly recommend you try it – you‘ll be pleased you did.

“Local, organic focus on food”

I love the focus on using the amazing local produce that Adelaide has to offer. I have had breakfast here many times and it is constantly great with plenty of choice for the healthy diner: organic nuts, seeds, kefir, coconut water, freshly squeezed juices, Kale smoothie and plenty of greens available. I love the Asian greens, asparagus and water chestnut dish. Dinners too are well presented and prepared.

“Festival of Food”

This restaurant is first class. We did the Festival of Food offer on the night we stayed in the city. The restaurant is the best choice we could have ever made on the list of restaurants. Not only was it inexpensive using the Festival of Food offer, but also a beautiful looking residence that you can dress up for and not feel overdressed. The food was excellent and gave us an opportunity to try elements we would never have eaten, like squid ink aioli, very delicious. I fully recommend this restaurant and we will return even without the offer.

From our perspective at The Playford Adelaide, it’s great to hear that our food and service is being enjoyed and appreciated. Why not come and dine with us and find out for yourself what’s got people talking.
