Why is it so cheap? you might ask. It is a hospitality training school run through Torrens University Australia, it offers courses ranging from diplomas to degree. This restaurant is their on the job work experience.

Remember it’s a training school, don’t be hard on the staff. That said, the staff were incredibly attentive and professional and eager to please. The manager was also an excellent teacher and we could hear her guiding the staff with her knowledge and experience on display.

The food can be described as Modern Australian. It’s old school food, showing the techniques learnt in training school that term and plated with finesse. You can also enjoy a glass of beer or wine with your dinner.

The Roasted Milly Hill lamb cutlets, rillets of lamb showing great care and precision and skill in its plating. It came with lamb shoulder, confit tomato, crispy cauliflower and jus. We had this with a side of roasted veggies.

After our meal, we were good to try a bit of dessert. We had the pecan pie and the Dark Chocolate delice was nice and smooth, served with burnt white chocolate, a marshmallow whip and a peanut brittle with a bit of Turkish delight too. We loved the marshmallow addition to this dish.
