Great value food, that is top notch. The "Jock's choice" option was fantastic, and we struggled to get through it. Wine was also reasonably priced. Service was first rate.

Great seasonal and smoked foods (and even beverages) Nice selection of sounds ones by the glass. Enjoyed trying the flavoured sodas as well. The smoked pumpkin and corn dishes were flavoursome. We got several dishes then shared them in a group of 5. The pavlova was perfect, melt in your mouth. This was my second visit to adelaide. Brought a guest from Japan. The presentation and service was pretty good too

The people serving us were really lovely, and the food was excellent however we waited long periods for drinks and the waiters seemed to be very confused amongst each other having to continually double check with customers re their order and actually forgot a couple things that we had ordered.

It is an occasion restaurant and as such is expensive for the food by Adelaide standards. We chose the al a carte menu and I think $40 is excessive for a fish curry! It was delicious but being a cook myself and despite the high quality fish and very generous serves, I still think the price was too much. the Canadian waitress was top notch. Despite the restaurant having only 12 guests we were obligated (by the woman greeting us) to all sit in the one area very close to each other despite me asking otherwise! one never minds hearing others conversations when the restaurant is full but when it is nearly empty its appeared all about the staff not the customer - ditto the loud music! this is my third time eating here and i will go back but when speaking to others i will certainly tell then to be specific re which table they want and to be prepared for a big $$ night out. Clearly to avoid that one needs to do with the degustation even if dessert isn't your thing or you don't want to waste food.

About Bistro Blackwood

Bistro Blackwood is Jock Zonfrillo’s lively bistro located in the east end of Adelaide’s CBD, and is the sibling of Restaurant Orana. It serves a seasonally evolving menu with daily specials drawing from the same indigenous ingredients and techniques that are brought to life at Orana. It’s the same style, but more approachable. Bistro Blackwood is a project for the Orana team, a space for the chefs to be creative and use seasonal ingredients from local organic farmers and suppliers, or what their forager has discovered that day. The menu includes bistro classics alongside a punchy local-leaning wine list with an emphasis on lo-fi producers. Guests wanting to splash out beyond the 40-bottle list can order off Restaurant Orana’s 400-bottle spread.
