She'll promise you more than the garden of Eden, then she'll carelessly cut you and laugh while you're bleeding.

Come gather ‘round people wherever you roam. Eden is the new restaurant in town and it’s catching people’s attention like a rooster at the crack o’ dawn. Unlike rooster crows, however, this new place on Holdfast Shores is a wake-up call that gets you bursting from your sheets with excitement. When we strolled through the door last week, at that very moment, I knew. I knew it the way you know about a good melon. It was just right.

This well-executed eatery is only a few months old but by golly, it already books out on Friday and Saturday nights! The set-up of having a dining area and a bar for pre-dinner drinks is a winning combination if I ever saw one, and the food is ah-mazing. Let me point out to you that the way I spelt ah-mazing indicates exactly how delicious it is! I had the pressed pork and it was succulent and bursting with flavour. This pork is so palatable it’s somewhat similar to ‘That’s what she said’ jokes, put simply, I don’t think I could ever get sick of it. I also had a taste of the homemade mushroom gnocchi was Jupiter styles. Out of this world.

Eden also has a temperature controlled wine cellar and blending room where you can purchase an empty bottle and try your hand at wine blending. Now I wouldn’t say this is the best way to drink wine, I believe that winemaking and roof insulation should be left to the professionals, but this is something different that certainly sets the place apart. Great for a first date locaish as activities take the pressure off making small talk. Always a positive to avoid the first date, job-interview-with-cocktails feeling, PLUS you get to drink the wine after which, call me crazy, also lightens up the get-to-know-you process. One bottle shared over dinner ladies. More than two glasses and you might forget that it’s NOT ok to detail the last fight you and your ex-boyfriend had, or even worst, that you will be going back to your house ALONE at the conclusion of the evening.

High point: The main waitress who assisted us was on the ball and in-the-know. Very likeable. Very friendly.

Low Point: When my dinning partner said “I’m on a seafood diet, I see food and I eat it.” Yep... I am ashamed to admit that no, my dining partner was not my dad. It was my boyfriend. Well it just goes to show that you can choose your restaurant, but you can’t choose the ones you’re crazy about!

Until next time… Stay RAD, Adelaide!

  9. A Ϝinal Ɗistant Clarion Cry - I fell under the
    influence of aгious Fսndamentalist Ϲhristian critics of Roϲk music for a brief period in 2003, which made me feel inclined to ԁеstroy aall traces of Rock muѕic in my possession, even though I'd
    long lost any real taste for Harɗ Rock bуy then, wҺether іn tɦe shape ߋf Metal, Punk, Goth, Grunge oг whatever.
