Superbly positioned in the Adelaide Hills overlooking the Piccadilly Valley, it is only 20 minutes from Adelaide CBD. PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
What’s the source of the potent romantic atmosphere at Piccadilly restaurant? On my visit I was surrounded by couples holding hands and smiling like the newly married. Perhaps it’s in the water – all of it drawn from the Piccadilly valley – even the table water. Perhaps it’s because the question of who gets the window seat is diffused as each table is positioned askew, allowing the stunning view of Adelaide Hills to be enjoyed by all.
Though just 20 minutes out of Adelaide, Piccadilly Restaurant feels miles from anywhere. During the day the view lazily stretches over the woodlands, vineyards and valleys. As night drops the room becomes cosy and tealight candles are ferried to the tables by amenable staff. Situated in an historic country house, the elegant menu is inspired by local organic produce, and fresh herbs and salad leaves are sourced from the organic kitchen garden. HISTORY
