“Food quality not worth the price”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

We dined at Andre's Cucina & Polenta Bar yesterday, and let the waiter suggested us some samples, so being four persons, we shared: one Beef Carpaccio, one Carpaccio Salmon trout, one Polenta Taleggio-Funghi, one smoked eggplant ravioli, one roasted lamb shoulder, one Fish of the day-mussels salsina, one mixed salad, one plate with seven mini-bomboloni, two bottle of sparkling water and two bottle of australian Vermentino and two coffee.
The food would have been barely enough for two persons with a good appetite, and from a italian point of view, absolutely by low quality kitchen: good ingredients, bad preparation. The bill was 350$, definitively not worth for those dishes.

“Great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed 8 March 2014 via mobile

Great menu choices, food comes out reasonably quick and everything was cooked to perfection. Hidden gem in Adelaide if you haven't been before. Head chef is from MasterChef Australia.

“Amazing food”
Reviewed 21 February 2014 via mobile

They somehow managed to fit a table of 10 on a Friday night and we were so fortunate that they did as the food was excellent. The waitress we had worked so hard to give us a great experience and we all left completely satisfied. Really the best meal I've had in Adelaide.

“Excellent - food getting better and better”
Reviewed 20 February 2014 via mobile

Have been here a few times, and it is constantly improving. The food is very interesting, tasty and delicious and the wine list is excellent. The service is also great. It was packed out on a Tuesday and easy to see why.
