Good Quality - Great Portions We as a family went to the bistro for dinner. We ordered the Eggplant Parmigiana Schnitzel (outstanding) , Bacon burger (massive), short ribs (to die for) and a Beef Schnitzel with pepper gravy. Beef schnitzel was too thick and tough...- rest of the meals were A1. Total bill around $110. Great wine and beer selection. Pretty upmarket and nice ambiance. Staff were brilliant.More

Can't thank all the staff enough for making our family Xmas Eve gathering such an enjoyable experience. We were a group of 14 which included 3 kids and were allowed to have the intimate setting of the alfresco area to ourselves. The staff were all...warm,friendly,genuine,attentive and took pride in their attention to the details that exceeded our expectations. The kids were welcomed with activity bags which they loved and they received their meals first, our lovely meals all arrived within minutes of each other. The table setting looked so nice with white tablecloths,white cloth napkins,water jugs,expensive silver foiled Xmas crackers were much appreciated as were the complimentary warm tasty dinner rolls served onto our side plates. We highly recommend booking a function here & a visit to this delightful old pub.More

They do good food and drink. Thought there would be more people there due to the location. Decor is a bit tired but the staff are great.

While it was a warm day and the air conditioning was not working that well, you couldn’t fault the food. The veggie burger was homemade and tasted amazing. Would highly recommend this burger even if you’re not a vegetarian. There pulled pork and sweet potato...fries was very rafting with a very generous size serving. No need to feel hungry after having this fish. The staff were very helpful and professional with a great knowledge of the menu. Looking for a great meal with an upmarket feel, then you must put this place on your list. Will be back again!!!More

This is set in the back streets of Kensington Adelaide. It’s an old pub with new facilities built on. The facilities are very nice and the food is very good value for money. Even tastes good.

Dined here for Friday lunch recently - busy but we managed to get the last booth available which are comfy to sit in but not great for the staff to serve meals / drinks as lots of stretching ,etc Having been coming here for over...20 years for family catch ups , birthdays ,etc and over the last few visits have been disappointed with some of our meals. From my viewpoint , have noticed a gradual decline in the quality of the meals - late last month we ordered Oysters Kilpatrick - sauce was wonderful but all bar one oyster on the very small side. Two in our party ordered the Sweet Potato , Salmon & Corn Fritters which were much too flat , slightly overcooked and a bit too tough to cut / eat on the edges - they needed to be thicker , fluffier and have more filling. Couldn't taste the salmon. I also ordered the Duck Spring Rolls which though nice - wouldn't rave ; they did have the most unusual sauce poured over them - a Thai style Chilli Sauce with an overpowering tomato flavour which spoilt the dish for me. A salad of mixed vegetables with Haloumi was tasty but needed larger bits of pumpkin , zuchinni for better texture , presentation and improved taste. Perhaps we'll give The Kensi one more go and stick to the basics - Chicken Parma , Steaks , Fish and Chips.More
