The Best Private Dining Rooms in Adelaide

Updated today


Private dining rooms (or whole-venue hire) combine the best of both worlds: the service and food of a restaurant, and the privacy and relaxed atmosphere of your own home. You might pay handsomely for it, but for a birthday, work party or other celebration, these spots can’t be beaten. The best part? Nobody has to do the dishes.

  • Set inside an old printing house, this influential eatery was among the city’s first to champion nose-to-tail cooking back when it was a novel concept. Local and ethical produce is still the focus, as is a dedication to SA wines and sharp service. An elegant dining room ties it all together.

  • A former drycleaner is the setting for one of Adelaide's most exciting drinking dens – a cosy, cleverly designed natural-wine bar serving world-class vino and inventive plates by a young chef with Michelin Star cred.

  • At this socially responsible restaurant you can expect meats cooked on a custom-made braai, and small plates influenced by Korean and Japanese cuisine.

  • This diner raised the bar for Italian food in Adelaide when it opened in 2015, and it's just as good as ever. Visit for excellent hand-made pasta, hearty share-plates and one of the best cellars in town. It's all set within one of South Australia's most awarded restaurant interiors.

  • A carefully updated old classic.

  • The west-end wine bar bringing a touch of New York City to Adelaide.

  • The Magill Estate Restaurant is great, but it’s not for every day. Here’s the answer.

  • A freewheeling Italian joint that's inspired by tradition – but never bound by it. Bandit’s woodfired pizzas and housemade pasta are among the city’s best, and the drinks list spans Italianate cocktails, amaro and solid non alc options. Salute!

  • Don't let the name or the fun atmosphere fool you. When you try Golden Boy’s energetic modern takes on Thai cuisine (and cocktails to match), you’ll know this place isn’t messing around. Go for the Tuk Tuk menu – you won’t regret it.
