    Food and staff were magnificent... the setting was wonderful however too much lighting. Needed to be dimmed to set the mood. Nit picking and my only complaint. Special night

    We usually rate this hotel restaurant 10/10, however the service was uncommonly slow and not in keeping with their usual service. Quality of food is amazing though, one not to be missed!!!

About the restaurant

Play on at the Playford

The Playford, Adelaide’s most awarded boutique hotel, therefore it comes as no surprise that their award-winning restaurant is partly responsible for the accolades. With their delectable buffet breakfast, and exceptional a la carte dinner menu, the restaurant is involved in turning out some of the best meals in the city. The dining room is a sea of opulence; lush classic decor creates a timeless feel perfect for the classiest of business meetings or a special private dinner. The produce South Australia has to offer is showcased in its finest form here with internationally recognised dishes using prime meat and seafood – and of course the wines cannot be beaten. Their lounge bar is one of the nicest in Adelaide, bright and airy, catching the hustle and bustle of North Terrace from within the calm surrounds of the lounge, with excellent cocktails and occasionally on weekends live music from amazing local bands including well known cover band The Cast. Get here!

Best dish: Duo of MSA grass fed Tasmanian beef fillet and smoked cheek cigar Desiree puree and charred baby onion.
