Booked in late in the afternoon and were looking for a casual drink and light meal. The bar is well stocked and the meals are very high quality. A little expensive however you really only get what you pay for. Highly recommend.

I would equate this restaurant to a bad suburban hotel restaurant. We went as a group of 10 as we couldn't get in anywhere else, which isn't surprising now. The waiter was actually very good but obviously trying to cover too much ground. We were...More

Arthur Waterhouse was the second owner of Mount Lofty House. While Arthur Hardy was known for lavish parties for Adelaide's elite, Arthur Waterhouse took a more relaxed approach to life and enjoyed nothing more than relaxing in his lounge and looking out over the beautiful Piccadilly valley. Like Waterhouse, the share style menu is relaxed and suited to sharing amongst friends.
