    Agreed, great food here. I totally recommend the venison burger. :thumbup:

    Have been meaning to try the bierhaus for ages.

    Press* last night - was brilliant!

    Had the suckling pig, amazing, and there were 13 of us, so they gave us 4 big strips of pork belly at no extra cost.

    Second time there, and while the service might not be perfect just yet, they're sure as hell making a genuine effort to pamper their clients.

    Fine, it's now on my todo list.
    Stupid question... but how is the pig served?

    My gf banned me from a whole suckling pig about two years ago...

    The Gf's dad wants one (and promised me one in February, but alas)...

    So, I'm thinking a graduation dinner in September with both of our families - and the GF will just have to be out-voted!

    Just letting you know that I'm pumped.

    I think I have the A-OK from the relevant people for a September feast there :D

    God that food was great

    Waiters were sub-par for the amount of money the restaurant costs, it was very loud and too dark. Downstairs tables didn't look like what I wanted in a restaurant.

    However, the food was amazing.

    Had the pig, was too much for 8 people (note, had 4*entrees to share, and it was 4 girls, 4 boys - 3 of the boys which don't like to "pig out"). I'm sure it's doable by 8 people, especially if you chose to focus less on the potatoes (and bread)... but the potatoes are so amazing I'm not sure you'd want to give them a miss!

    Pig trimmings were cauliflower puree, green salad and potatoes - and we didn't finish any sides.

    Could serve 12 people - assuming you aren't big eaters.

    Annoyingly, they wouldn't give us a doggy bag. Such a shame to waste the left-overs.

    Overall, wouldn't recommend it for a nice couples dinner (given the above issues, and other opportunities like Vincenzos (great for couples).... would very highly recommend it for the pig if you have a group, because that pig was god-damn amazing.

    I mean, don't get me wrong, if you've tried all the other nice restaurants, as a couple, you could certainly enjoy it.... but, the comment was made by 3 in the group that it wasn't a very couples orientated restaurant.

    I've only been upstairs; hate the downstairs concept.

    I was there again Friday mate, and it was bloody excellent, again ;)

    We ordered entrees when we went as well - huge mistake, the pig was more than enough for 12.

    We did take the rest home though, so that's a little weird...

    I dined at the Red Ocre a few weeks back, took my UK relies there, and apart from the excessively expensive wines the food was excellent and the views in the evenings were just awesome :thumbup:

    Visited Windy Point for my gf's birthday last night, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

    Staff were fantastic and knowledgeable, food was amazing.

    I recommend the Pork belly, it was a divine entree, best pork i've ever had by a long long way.

    My girlfriend had the duck for her main, another amazing dish, recommended again.

    However, I had the Chateaubriand, and although the fillet was cooked to perfection, I can't recommend the dish @ $50.

    I so wanted to try their dessert platter, but I was ridiculously full after the main so stuck with a glass of Grandfather Port and an espresso :).

    In total we had

    Sourdough starter
    2x entree's
    2x palate cleanser
    2x mains
    4 glasses of wine total
    Glass of port and espresso

    total cost was around $245.

    Again, cannot fault the service. Upon seating, they asked how our day was, and I informed them only then that it was Lisa's birthday. The 3 staff that came to the table throughout the night all wished her a happy birthday by name, and at the end bought her out a plate with "Happy Birthday Lisa" written in chocolate, with a sparkler and chocolates.

    I will post up some photos later to show the meals etc.

    I'll have to retract my recommendation for the Woodside Providore. I went there and month ago and they now have new owners and the food quality has gone downhill.

    All my favourite eating places keep getting taken over. Recently discovered the Vale/Inn has been taken over too, but I haven't been there since the takeover so I'm hoping they still have the duck pizza.

    But I have found a new restaurant I was really impressed with. The Wanera Wine Bar & Restaurant in Angaston. I've been there twice and haven't been disappointed. Great service and excellent quality food. Huge wine list too.

    Same with me and Scoozi on rundle. Used to absolutely mouth water over their Calzone then something changed and the recipe changed, now it's rubbish. I don't go there any longer.
