Adelaide Hills

Café Assiette


Café Assiette was a place we went to a LONG LONG time ago when we first moved to Adelaide. This was over 10 years ago now, and despite being suitably impressed from that visit, we have only been back once since before now. This has nothing to do with how good it was at the time either…. I cannot explain ...

Between the Vines – Cellar Door, Adelaide Hills


A great cellar door experience is something that is hard to beat. I know that may sound like a big call, but when  you have lovely people, a fantastic location, beautiful wines and some delicious local produce combining, it is really ticking all the boxes.

Maximilians/Sidewood Estate – Max’s Burger

Certainly presents nicely

Sidewood Estate Cellar Door 21 June 2015 I have driven past Maximillian’s restaurant and the Sidewood Cellar Door probably thousands of times.  I’ve heard many a brilliant thing about the place in general, not to mention the fantastic views and delicious wines.  Today was a chilly winter’s day in Adelaide but the sun was out and lunch beckoned. What better ...

Stirling Hotel – Crispy Salt and Pepper Chicken Burger

Stirling Hotel - Crispy Chicken

Our love for the Stirling Hotel is well entrenched, as you can see commented on in our other review. One member of the Burger Me team (specifically myself) used to live at Upper Sturt, and as such a trek to the Stirling was a fairly regular occurrence (pre children at least). Without exception the experience had been excellent leading up ...

The Stirling Hotel – Bacon Double Cheeseburger

Stirling Hotel - Double Cheeseburger

I love the Stirling Hotel. In my view it has really never faulted on any particular level. The hotel is situated in picturesque Stirling – funnily enough – a truly beautiful Adelaide hills township. They offer a variety of tap beers, both mainstream and craft style, and also have a very notable and impressive wine list for a “pub”. Pizzas ...

Bridgewater Inn – Deneary Burger

An impromptu dinner out lead us to the wine watering hole at Bridewater. Having not quite ordered a burger from here in the past – it was a simple decision to be made on this evening. It is a pub of wonderful character and a favourite of mine in the Adelaide region, but how are their burger making skills? Read ...

Great Eastern Hotel – Bruno Burger

Country pubs and fine dining aren’t generally things that go together hand in hand. In much the same way as you don’t expect Penfolds Grange quality gushing from the tap on a wine cask, you are not anticipating zucchini flowers. shaved truffle, caviar or whole albino Muscovy duck to be on the menu. Basic food though – schnitzels, roasts and ...

The Locavore – Vege Burger

The Locavore has been visited before of course, and we were well pleased with their efforts on the night. However, now they step up to deliver their other burger offering – the vege. Will this reach the same heights (or better) than the beef, or will it form part of the compost heap of the Adelaide burger scene?

Balhannah Hotel – Balhannah Burger

The Balhannah Hotel has been long on the burger consumption agenda, largely due to the fact that a voucher giving 2-for-1 mains is readily available. It is also nice to get away from the usual CBD haunts and see if the Hill’s pubs can offer a better burger experience.

The Locavore – Wagyu Loca-Burger

The Locavore – Wednesday special – Wagyu Loca-Burger This was my first experience at The Locavore (Local-eater), a long time coming I must say.  My colleague who is a hills dweller had informed me on many previous occasions of The Locavore’s existence.  The Locavore lives by the principles of the 100 Mile Diet – that is – all produce is ...
