    Beautiful venue, high gabled ceilings, with lovely views out to large, leafy trees. Delicious food, friendly, welcoming, and efficient service. Would love to return for another special occasion.

    It was very very noisy upstairs and difficult/almost impossible to have a conversation. The food and service were good.....good choice of wine etc and good menu.

    The food was superb as usual. The new renovations have made the restaurant more open and roomier - fantastic job!

    A lovely lunch was shared with my husband and daughter. The quality of the food was outstanding and the service very attentive without being too over to the top. Highly recommended - 5 stars!

    We all enjoyed our meal and look forward to returning to dine. Can I just suggest that you use Bonsoy Soy Milk in your coffees as it is the best tasting one to use for Soy milk drinkers?

How to get to the restaurant

49 Mount Barker Road, 5152, Stirling (SA), Australia

About the restaurant

Who needs a cellar door? Travelling to Stirling is such a delight in itself that the town's eating houses get a head start on their city counterparts. Lovacore is the tourist's delight – the number of awards won in their short stint in the lush town is too many to count, and they proudly wear the badge for having more Adelaide Hills' wines exclusively on their list than anywhere in the world. A favourite for slick cocktail parties or sit down functions, the menu is broad and offers a beautiful breakfast option, tapas and nibbles. They're all about the 100-mile rule, ensuring that all produce is local, and as such it is always amazing to go and see what their 10 Daily Specials have morphed into from week to week. Some of their food is simply too good to make an easy choice – think pulled confit duck gnocchi, Harris smoked trout salad and their delicious homemade fishcakes. Allow a little longer at this place to have a couple of extra dishes, you won't regret it. Best Dish: regional tasting plate
