“Best restaurant in Australia!!!”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 via mobile

We visited Andre's last night for a very special birthday dinner and we savoured the $59 per head tasting extravaganza... From the carpaccio to the tagliata and everything in between it was the best food and service we've ever experienced anywhere.... We are from Sydney and we travel extensively all over Australia and the world including a trip to Italy every year and Andre's beats everywhere!
Congratulations to Andre and all his wonderful staff and we wish you every success in the future and hope to be able to make regular visits to Adelaide just to dine at Andre's!

“Very Very Good”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

Dinner with friends on a Wednesday night and the place was packed with constant customers coming and going. We chose their version of the degustation option where the kitchen just sends out dishes from appetisers, entrees, mains and a desert dish. It was all great, very tasty and plenty. Wine selection good and service was excellent considering it was so busy. In fact the girls that served us were very attentive, knowledgable & just very pleasant. Highly recommend a try. Hopefully you won't be disappointed.

“Better than Bologna”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

On a recommendation from an Adelaide local foodie, I had the pleasure of devouring the set menu in a full house on a Friday night late (8.30pm) sitting. It was exceptional and without flaw. Every course was AMAZING and the service matched. Having had the pleasure of eating in and around Bologna, this not only matched but exceeded that experience. Everyone at my table stopped talking when the food arrived and just nodded at each other in recognition of perfection. Was a highlight of my Adelaide trip. Worth the trip to Adelaide!

“Excellent experience, can't wait to come back!”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

We ate here at the early seating on Friday night, excellent service, very professional and the food was delicious and the same prices as some of the much larger soulless Italian restaurants on Rundle street. The chocolate gnocchi dessert was divine - I would love to try the deal where they feed you just didn't have time this visit.
