Very interesting decor which created expectations as to the experience. This was our first visit with friends who had been before. It seems some changes have not been for the better. Food and drinks were being served up to 10 minutes apart at our table....More

To celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary we thought we would go back to place we used to visit after a big night out for a bit of privacy. The place has not changed. The individual areas with couches offer the privacy to share an intimate...More

The Elephant Walk hasn't changed much in decades with its quirky dingy surroundings. however, it is an Adelaide icon and offers good food and drink in a very cosy atmosphere. It gets busy later in the evening.

A gorgeous warm and cozy cafe to enjoy with friends. Very comfortable booths to sit in. We enjoyed the Chocolate Fondue which we shared together and have a wide varieties of coffees and teas to choose from. A lovely cafe to visit.
