We stopped here for drinks and decided to have dinner that night. We reserved a table with a sunset view and it was perfect. It is a little expensive for the food quality but you are paying for the location and the view so it is worth a little more to get that. The service was a little random. Seemed... More

What a gorgeous restaurant. We literally googled 'restaurants in Glenelg' and The Wharf came up #2... Definitely deserves #1 rating. The seafood plate to share was delicious.. I'm not a big seafood fan but the flavours were great. We didn't leave anything to clean up. Patrick was great and assisted us with chosing a bottle of wine. Reasonably priced. Delicious... More

Was in Glenelg on business on a Sunday afternoon. Walked past The Wharf and checked the reviews....looked and sounded great. Quite disappointing. I had scallops to start, which were served on the shell in a really good dressing. However, the scallops were as small as a fingernail. Then had the chowder which was just like a bowl of creamy soup,... More

Dropped in on a beautiful sunny Sunday and was treated to the most amazing scallops and prawns all while watching the ocean and sipping white wine! Sensational 👌🏻

Everyone raved about their mains. Garlic prawns were awesome. Best chips in Adelaide. Prawn salad was nice but not enough prawn to lettuce ratio. Service very friendly and knowledgeable about the wine list. Profiteroles were disappointing, coffees cold and no fruit on pavlova. Canned cream used. Restaurant really needs to reconsider desserts.

This place has really good food. I eat at a lot of fine dining restaurants and this is up there. It has a laid back atmosphere with high class food quality. We came earlier than our guest and were waited on straight away. I had the chicken satay for entry which is 10/10 and the scotch for main which was... More

My family and I went to this restaurant today, we'd just come off a long flight, and my young son was looking forward to lunch. By all accounts the lady who seated us was lovely. We ordered, great, I asked for a salad with dressing on the side - pretty standard, right? The salad was placed in front of me... More

We sincerely regret you had a disappointing lunch with us. We pride ourselves on our service and food and its highly disappointing when we hear otherwise. I have spoken with the staff involved and feel there has been a miscommunication between all parties involved. The understanding I have is that the dressing was on the side but with our greek...
