The Summit Restaurant and Cafe

The floor to ceiling walls of glass allow guests to enjoy the ever-changing panoramic views over Adelaide to the sea.

By day, the restaurant is comfortably informal and caters well for quick lunches, special celebrations or the idyllic long lunch.

The restaurant also caters for large or small groups who wish to lunch over business and can be set up for privacy as required.

The evening sunsets are spectacular as the sun sets in the west over the city and the sea, and light up the western sky with glorious hues of orange, red and crimson.

By night, the restaurant atmosphere changes with the light. As the sun sets, the city lights start to appear, the candles are lit for every table, and the interior lights are dimmed to enhance the city lights below and the stars above. The restaurant gains a warm and wonderful dining experience.

Mon to Tues - 9am to 5pm for breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea.
(Available Monday and Tuesday nights for private functions)
Wed to Sun - 9am to 6pm for breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea.

Dinner bookings from 6pm. Bookings essential.
