Established in 1985 by proprietor/manager Nick Papazahariakis, Chloe's is situated only minutes from the centre of Adelaide. Set in beautiful landscaped gardens of established trees, gardenias and camelias. On arrival you will be blown away by the silver, crystal and damask all laid before you in their elegant dining rooms, one divided by a magnificent marble fireplace. Everything about Chloe's reinforces that it is Adelaide's premier silver service restaurant, offering a complete experience of immaculate surroundings, lead light windows, pressed metal ceilings, antiques and artworks.

Classic dishes are created with a modern edge and served by a highly experienced staff. The wine list is most impressive so if you are into wine, ask Nick to be shown the outstanding wine cellar which holds close to 10,000 bottles of wine. Chloe's Restaurant supports its staff to develop their skills within the hospitality industry as evident in the achievement of their head waiter, Neil McDonald winning two Sommelier awards and representing Australia at the International Sopexa du Sommelier competition in Paris.

Restaurant and Catering Australia has launched a new award to recognise the significant contribution made by restaurateurs and caterers in the industry. Nick Papazahariakis has been the first recipient of this prestigious award.


Twenty years on, Chloe's remains a cornerstone of the Adelaide fine dining scene. Many have toasted to life, love and business by the light of Chloe's marble fireplace. The elegant dining rooms are housed in a Victorian era villa, set back from the road down a path lined with gardenias and camellias. A step back in time, Chloe's is lavishly decked out with antique mirrors, French doors and tables draped with damask, crowned with crystal glassware. Ask to be shown to the cellar and you'll find yourself among some 10,000 bottles of the world's best.

The food is a classical take on European haute cuisine, although new chef Johnny Triscari has brought a refreshing Asian streak to the menu. Everything is house-made and elaborately constructed, from the delicate tortellini entree filled with goats cheese and zucchini, to a finale of beautiful petit fours. In between, sample the rich venison rump mignon with blue cheese, dauphine potato and cassis sauce or the equally extravagant pheasant breast with roasted root vegetables, mustard fruits and shallot glaze. First-date candidates trying not to look too gluttonous might do well with the steamed tofu cake on roasted mushroom and sauteed greens. The temptation of desserts, however, like the tangelo souffle tart with ice cream and chocolate sauce will make dietary restraint pretty close to impossible.

My wife and I attended Chloe's Friday 14/06/13 for dinner to celebrate our joint birthday's. Nick and his highly professional staff attended to our every need with wonderful attention to detail. Our entrees, maincourses and deserts were outstanding, beautifully presented and professionally served. To finish off our meal we had great coffee's with a highlight of Nick bringing our petifors with a personalised Birthday wishes to both of us beautifully written in Chocolate. Our wine selected by Nick was also beautiful. Thank You Nick and Staff for showing people that Adelaide can match the best Restaurants around with high standards in food and service. If you have not been to Chloe's you have missed out on a lifetime experience. Thank you for making our night so special. Regards, Andrew & Sue Mitchell.

My wife and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary at Chloe's and had our first ever degustation menu with matching wines. It was without a shadow of a doubt the most amazing meal I have ever eaten and an experience that everyone should have. Each dish was culinary art, worthy of a place in any top restaurant in New York or Paris and the combination of flavours and textures was simply divine! The food was basically faultless. Additionally the pairing of food to wine was unbelievable, with as much thought gone into the wine selection as the food. Not often you get to drink a 1985 Cab Sav or a 1972 port! The venue itself was stunning. Looking at the decor and the artistically designed premises you would swear that you were in a French mansion rather than the eastern suburbs of Adelaide. The waiting staff were attentive and truly cared about making our dining experience and anniversary a special event. A little on the costly side, however for a special occasion like a wedding anniversary, worth every cent!
