    Very nice food sourced locally and a good local wine list in a relaxed and casual atmosphere. Best restaurant in Stirling by some distance. Very convenient drive from Adelaide.

    The Loca Vore is always a favourite for a special dinner. The food is always good and a good selection, and great ambiance. Great service and very friendly staff.

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
