Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Whitehouse, located in the picturesque town of Hahndorf, is nothing short of a culinary revelation. This unassuming burger joint has easily skyrocketed to the top of my list as the best burger place not just in South Australia, but quite possibly the entire country....Upon arrival, it's clear that The Whitehouse takes pride in its award-winning hospitality. The staff are genuinely warm and welcoming, eager to offer their recommendations and ensure you have an exceptional dining experience. The menu at The Whitehouse is small, but perfectly curated. Unlike the tacky, oversized menus found at lesser establishments, this restaurant focuses on quality over quantity. Each burger is a well-thought-out masterpiece, showcasing the skill and passion of the chef. The ingredients are fresh and locally sourced, and the balance of flavors and textures is spot-on. For myself, the star of the show is undoubtedly their Hamburger, which is cooked to perfection, tender and juicy, and bursting with rich, robust flavor. The quality of the meat is evident in every bite, reflecting The Whitehouse's commitment to sourcing the finest local produce. A generous layer of creamy Monterey Jack cheese is melted atop the patty, adding a smooth, velvety texture and a mild, buttery flavor that perfectly complements the beef. The addition of crispy bacon not only lends a smoky, savory element to the burger but also introduces an irresistible crunch that contrasts beautifully with the other components. The Hamburger is further enhanced by a bed of crisp, fresh lettuce and a dollop of house-made tomato relish. The relish adds a touch of sweetness and tanginess, balancing the richness of the cheese and bacon while accentuating the natural flavors of the beef patty. The crowning glory of this remarkable burger is the smoked paprika aioli. This unique condiment infuses the dish with a subtle smoky undertone and a gentle heat, adding depth and complexity to the overall flavor profile. Each ingredient is carefully nestled between a pair of soft, lightly toasted butter buns that are sturdy enough to hold everything together without becoming soggy or overwhelming the other components. The outdoor dining area, nestled beneath lush trees, provides a serene ambiance through spring and summer, and showcases vibrant autumn colors. A cozy fire keeps guests warm during colder months, adding to the charm of this hidden gem. The Whitehouse is the ultimate destination for those seeking the best burger experience in South Australia, complete with an enchanting outdoor dining area and warm, welcoming service.More

I had the French burger and my wife had the vegetarian naked burger. I had read in here how good these burgers are so we made a beeline for the Whitehouse to try them. 5 stars and the owners were super friendly as well. We...are Queenslanders so we have tried burgers near and far.More

Fabulous! Outdoor burger bar. Simple menu but absolutely delicious. Do not miss going to this place if you are in Hahndorf. The staff were amazing, service was excellent. Outdoor fire pit added to the ambiance.

Went to the White House for a slightly later lunch with my partner on a Sunday. A cute little restaurant on the Main street of Hanhdorf. We both ordered burgers and fries. The burgers were good, but not as nice as I was expecting. To...me, the fries were also missing a bit of flavour and were a little bland, but still crunchy. The customer service however was absolutely fantastic. The waiter was friendly, funny and ensured we had a great experience. Food arrived quickly and was reasonably priced. I would eat here again. ☺️More

The burgers here are just spectacular. Air light milk bun, Smokey cheese and relish. Sounds simple but every element in the burger was perfect.

We are Adelaide locals and chanced upon the renovated restaurant for lunch. My husband and I were dining with our 11-month old, and the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating of our requirements. The burgers were delicious and served quickly and hot, the wine menu...simple but excellent, and the atmosphere was really lovely near the open fire. We will definitely come back in summer to have a picnic in the outdoor area.More

I had visited Hahndorf before and this was my second visit. The interior of The White House is as the name implies, white washed walls with black furniture. A fire was burning, but I was still feeling a little on the cold side. I ordered...a beef burger. The overall taste was lovely, but I did find it a little soggy from the salad in the burgerThe staff were very friendly and personable.More

Had a very delicious Reuben filling on rye but for $18 I think the bread should have been better than rye supermarket bread - very disappointing and felt really cheated.

Definitely the best place for lunch or dinner in Hahndorf. The menu is simple, yet everything on it is simply amazing. The burgers are so full of flavour, and despite being completely full, I still want more. The chips and special seasoning really top it...off. Also, their chocolate milkshake is the perfect finisher! I can’t recommend this place higher. And even the price is really good!More
