Housed within a beautiful Victorian-style, heritage listed building in Adelaide's West End, Cos Restaurant maintains an airy and spacious elegance with its high ceilings, original plaster work, and old style ceiling fans. The feeling is enhanced by the large window (open in summer) that overlooks the activity of Leigh Street. The wooden chairs and tables laid with crisp, white linen and the dark wooden floor boards add to the effect, and in the summer months, Cos's leafy side courtyard is ideal for enjoying a long, lazy lunch or a quick coffee with clients.

Above Cos sits a beautiful character filled private function room able to seat up to 60 people or 100 people standing. With arched windows, ornate fireplace and split level bar area, Cos function venue this is the perfect place for any get together. Excellent food, fantastic service and relaxed ambience makes Cos an ideal venue for small to medium sized functions, events, conferences and many other uses.

Cos a la carte private dining is available for small parties between 10-20 people in the function room. With its open split level design our function room is sure to offer the flexibility and privacy you require, whilst enjoying some of Adelaide's best food and wine.

Only the best and freshest of local produce feature in the menu and the chef’s very own Caesar salad dressing is second to none. Specializing in aged steaks, Caesar salad and fresh local seafood, the restaurant menu has an array of options for lunch and dinner, augmented with specially created dishes on a daily basis. Cos' wine list is primarily based on boutique, hard to find South Australian wineries with a few from interstate and overseas.

Parking is available at nearby Topham Mall Car Park which is accessible from Waymouth Street. It is then a short stroll down Topham Mall and onto Leigh Street.

Cracking food and smoothe/relaxed atmosphere. Steaks are excellent. Smart winelist. Just right for business lunch or  23/07/2012
