Meet the Chef

Picture of Peter Reschke.

Peter Reschke

Peter began his cooking career in 1976 as an apprentice chef working in some of Adelaide’s top restaurants of the time. He spent the early 80’s broadening his horizons working both interstate and overseas before returning home and becoming a forerunner in South Australia’s food culture. Taking the helm at d’Arry’s Verandah in 2004, Peter’s strong belief in the local and seasonal produce of the Fleurieu Peninsular along with his taste for global cuisines has seen the restaurant reach icon status.

Always a treat to go back to d’Arry’s. Restaurant was rather busy when we arrived for a late sitting, which means it can be a bit noisy given the setup but with a tables clearing as our food was served it was pleasant as always. Food was stunning, high quality ingredients, although both our mains could have been a bit warmer.

Superb meal. Lobster & crab ravioli is a must. Would be one of the dishes I've ever had.

An absolutely incredible experience. One of the best meals I have ever eaten , with a lobster bisque I will long remember and the most gorgeous herb and goat cheese blini. Great wines, amazing service and a wonderful experience. Would definitely recommend to everyone!

after coming here many times over the last 4 years we have seen the menu grow in variety but always maintain the same standard of quality, great produce and creativity. The staff are the standard all other locations should aim to follow. Even when very busy they are still exceptional.
