Piccadilly Restaurant offers a very Adelaide Hills experience perched atop Mount Lofty offering spectacular views of surrounding vineyards, gardens and woodlands. Executive Chef Girard Ramsay has created an exceptional a la carte menu that has truly captured the taste of the Adelaide Hills, offering one of the finest dining experiences in South Australia. After dinner, settle into the leather chesterfields by the fire for a glass of port and soak up the tranquil atmosphere.

A gracious boutique property, Mount Lofty House boasts a long and interesting history since it was built in the 1850s as a summer house for politician, lawyer, pastoralist and businessman Arthur Hardy and his family. Hardy also had the foresight to plant the highest vineyard in South Australia on the Mount Lofty grounds in 1857. The vines have been lovingly restored to produce their first vintage of Chardonnay in 2007.

'Tasting at the Top' brings together the best of the Adelaide Hills, combining superb food and wine with country hospitality and service - all just 20 minutes from Adelaide CBD.
