    This place has been around for almost 42 years. I can say the service is always outstanding and warm and professional. Unlike a couple of other places we dined at recently. They truly know the meaning of hospitality. Whilst the food is predicable and largely unchanged so is the predictability of the quality. Its excellent. And I can highly recommend their parfait for dessert. And I have bought hundreds of their meatballs over the years. So good!!

    Old fashioned and reliable, with food and service standards seen in the past bit rarely now. You get what you expect, and that’s a good thing. Steak. Meatballs. Bread. Dessert. Our local and worth visiting regularly.

    The usual good food service and great quality. Steaks arrived as requested and my extra sides of beans and slivered almonds hit the mark. Wine service excellent.

    Very pleased to find this restaurant on TripAdvisor. Chose it because it had good reviews and was not far from our hotel. On arrival we were met by the owner, who was very welcoming. We then learned that most of the staff were his extended family, and it showed in the service and attention to detail. We all chose the chateaubriand. We didn't order a starter, but were given an entree of meatballs on the house, which were delicious. The chateaubriand came with plenty of fresh vegetables, which were perfectly cooked and so was the meat. Would highly recommend and will certainly visit again the next time we are in Adelaide.

    One thing that really impressed was that while there was a mistake made with one meal, it was rectified immediately and without any issue. It felt like the staff genuinely cared a lot about how your meal went.

    An old favourite. My 'go to' place for a good steak. Stratos is always there to cheerfully greet and show us to our table. The steaks were cooked to our liking. The service was prompt but not intrusive.

About the restaurant

Fabulous for meat lovers The Cork and Cleaver is proudly in its 38th year in Adelaide, and boasts that it may just have one of the finest steaks in Australia. The comfortable and homely décor allows you to really settle in for your meal, and be well looked after by the staff, who you may well meet each time you return as there are those who have been around for quite a while; always a sign of a good place to work and be. An extensive wine list and flexible choice of menus meant that this is one of the most hospitable and easy places to host a work or business function in one of their four exclusive spaces. Proximity to the CBD means it is accessible for locals and international guests. Winners of many state and national awards, this venue has a comfortable bar area for your pre dinner drinks, a grill menu showcasing not only the typical steaks but many more delicious dishes such as lamb, New England chicken and whatever fish may be on offer for the day. Share a delicious Chateau Briand if you want to spoil yourselves and know that you are in a place that so many before have loved and held dear. Best dish: Aged Scotch Fillet
