For the first time in 20 years an Adelaide restaurant took out the coveted position of being named Australia’s Restaurant of The Year by the Gourmet Traveller Restaurant awards 2018. The restaurant, of course being that of Celebrity Chef Jock Zonfrillo is a well hidden treasure of Rundle Street East.
Completely unmarked by signage, those looking to experience the culinary creations are challenged to locate a single stairway that seemingly leads to nowhere.
Once inside diners are treated to an upscale, intimate – almost exclusive setting. The passionate and knowledgeable staff guide the experience, detailing the inventive offers for that evening.
As the name suggests – Orana – meaning ‘welcome’ in some Aboriginal languages, is deeply entwined with native Australian ingredients. An ever changing seasonal menu sees the team not only incorporating the available ingredients, but often foraging for them themselves.
