During a recent trip to Adelaide, we were looking for a spot of lunch around Rundle Mall, and specifically did not want food court fare or take-away franchise food.
We stumbled across the First Lounge Bar & Restaurant on Rundle Mall.
We headed in, perused the menu, sat down and ordered.
The staff were very polite and friendly, and quickly served us.
There is an extensively-stocked bar, but we weren't in the mood for wine at the time.
We ordered the chicken schnitzel and coconut-crumbed flathead. Both were reasonably priced, and my meal was quite satisfying.
Looking around the venue, we noticed the high ceilings, and quaint sofas and nooks in which to sit and relax over a drink.
Different sections of the lounge can be partitioned via sleek curtains, providing a more intimate experience for couples or groups at the lounge.
Overall, the place was quite funky and provided good food, service and atmosphere.
As we were only there for lunch, the atmosphere was subdued, but I can imagine that for dinner, especially on Friday nights, there'd be a lot more of a buzz, as the venue hosts live music.
Well worth visiting.
