Really enjoyed our beautiful 3 course meal at Mt Lofty Summit Restaurant. Menu so good it was hard to choose. Servings were generous and well plated. Service prompt, efficient and friendly. Lovely sunset view over the city. On the downside: Pretty crappy having to pay compulsory parking fee in almost empty car park on top of an expensive meal.

Great scenic area with beautiful views of Adelaide and suburbs, even to some beaches. Friendly tourist information guides. Walking trails, bicycle paths for the fit people. Restaurant with views, although we did not eat there. Car parking costs $4 which is a bit ridiculous as there is a lot of parking spaces and you aren't there for very long unless... More

It was blowing a gale and very cold. The view was amazing and you could see for miles. Really enjoyable, had a nice walk and had a lovely hot coffee in the cafe

Great view over the city of Adelaide, worth a look, parking was free as some kind souls had ripped the meters out, (views like this should be free anyway) chuckled about that one.

Mount Lofty offers great views of Adelaide. You can pick out points of interest, from Glenelg to Port Adelaide.

Arrived to find that the power was out yet again in South Australia. The staff provided a tasting platter for us with drinks before arranging an alternative venue. Very kind and sorry for the inconvenience.

Beautiful scenery from the top. The cafe at top had nice food. Nice hike up to top or a easy drive. Gorgeous

The Café does a great breakfast with views over Adelaide. I had the Summit Big Breakfast which was a pretty big feed. The sliced mushrooms made it, along with the pork sausage. The eggs and bacon were really well done and very tasty. All for $19.90 The coffee was good and service great.

Thank Tim J
