This week, the Australian Financial Review revealed their prestigious ‘Australia’s Top 100 Restaurants’ Awards with South Australia accounting for more than 10% of the culinary heavyweights. 

Six of the thirteen South Australian restaurants that made the esteemed list are located in the city. The stunning East End proved to be a culinary jewel in Adelaide’s crown with Africola, the brainchild of Bistro Dom former head chef Duncan Welgemoed, coming in at number 5. Jock Zonfrillo’s Orana was ranked 23 on the back of being named Gourmet Traveller’s Restaurant of the Year 2018.
