LENZERHEIDE RESTAURANT
Adelaide, SA

Lenzerheide restaurant, once renowned for fine dining Swiss cuisine, the Lenzerheide of Hawthorn now exhibits some modern Australian flavours, in a relaxed environment. Traditional dish Bundnerfleisch remains, in equally stayed-still-in-time surrounds, but nowadays these fine slices of air dried beef sit alongside Panko crumbed oysters with wasabi tobiko (fish roe) and Japanese mayo.

DETAILS
PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
Its prices still situate Lenzerheide as a special occasion place and if you are hoping for the ambience to have remained the same, you will not be disappointed. No drastic d├ęcor changes reside in the dining room of this 1890s mansion. A centre atrium adds a casual air to this elegant eatery, opened over two decades ago. In its heyday it accumulated more awards than you could poke a fondue fork at. Beautiful function rooms can still be enjoyed with garden views of the grounds, and now high teas for business, pleasure or pleasurable business.
Executive Chef Mark Gaston has been at the burners for more than ten years. His rethought menu retains Chateaubriand with its beef tenderloin and asparagus sauced indulgently with bordelaise and hollandaise. Those hunting a classic duck a l'orange can now aim at either a roasted breast with fennel, mizuna, sticky orange and star anise balsamic reduction, or a twice roasted half Muscovy duckling with black current demi glaze and red wine poached baby pears. Duck fat and saffron roast potatoes seem a likely side, although rest assured traditional Swiss roschti with its thickly grated fried potatoes is still close by. Lenzerheide's cellar remains in place, as does its much loved doodle. For dessert many still adore asking for the crepe with vanilla bean ice cream, warmed chocolate sauce and pouring cream.

My absolute favourite restaurant for special occasions. I'm an office worker, and my husband is a tradie. We love this restaurant because, although the food is expensive, it's worth our money. Also, a big plus is that we are made to feel so welcome. It is fine dining but with a homely touch. I can thoroughly recommend Lenzerheide for a special occasion.

As a previous visitor I was looking for a classy New Year's Eve with my wife. As always, the staff were friendly, attentive and relaxed despite a full house. The oysters were fresh and made a great start. Air dried beef carpaccio was a let down, not in quantity as there was almost too much, but it was not carpaccio, just slices of semi dried beef and served too thick. The warm fresh bread with butter was hard to resist. Mains of barramundi unfortunately was bland with unimaginative mash and beans. Should have gone with the special of seafood platter which looked fantastic. Dessert was nice. My main criticism though relates to atmosphere. This venue has in the past been a ``posh`` restaurant, classical music, classy setting but their failure to enforce an acceptable dress code meant we were sitting with a bunch of people in shorts, tee shirts and torn jeans. Our meals were rushed and considering we went there expecting to celebrate midnight, we were done by 11 pm. Sorry Lenzerheide.....a big let down on this occasion.
