First time customer. We ordered dinner delivered from the Port Admiral Hotel restaurant recently and it was absolutely delicious, mouthwatering and beautifully cooked and presentation. We ordered: Wood Grilled Portuguese Chicken with Scorched corn, chilli, green leaves, pickled red onions, porto dressing, creamy potato salad (gf). Crinkle Cut Chips (VO / GF) Environmentally friendly takeaway packaging. The Wood Grilled Portuguese Chicken was juicy and tender, and the salads were beautifully made. I especially loved the potato salad and how perfectly soft cooked the potatoes were. I often avoid potato salad from restaurants and takeaway stores because majority of places don't cook the potatoes properly and they're often undercooked.... Well, the chef/cook who is at the Port Admiral restaurant is an excellent chef/cook. Everything about the food we had was exceptional. Perfect balance of flavours & seasoning. Top quality! Unfortunately they don't currently offer their restaurant menu desserts on their MenuLog app delivery menu. Hopefully management or the kitchen will consider adding this to the menu soon. Highly recommend and will definitely be returning customers!

We get very excited about finding a fully gluten free venue as my partner is gluten intolerant. And this one did not disappoint! Every meal was absolutely amazing. Despite how busy they were, the meals came out in a very reasonable time. Portion sizes are also very decent!

Huge shoutout to our waitress Ann. She was incredible. She was so lovely, funny, welcoming and helpful. Just an all round amazing lady. She made the night even more great. 10/10 for Ann. But also 10/10 for everything overall. Will definitely be back. Thank you guys :)

Third time coming to the admiral since the reopening and it's been a fantastic experience everytime.
Venue has that retro port feel to it, staff are fantastic and accommodating and the food is absolutely spot on everytime. Highly recommend the chicken schnitzels ??'?

Excellent Pork Rib Eye & Brandy Alexander Cocktail.
Staff were very friendly & made our time there most enjoyable.
Can't wait to return to try more from their extensive menu, especially the shared meals.

Port Admiral has recently reopened and have new management. A completely gluten-free menu with plenty of DFO and Vegan options. New beers on tap and spirits so there's something new for everyone to try, along with a couple of classics (Cooper's, west end, etc).

I ordered a mushroom burger - plenty of roast veggies and tasted stunning. They did forget the cheese which was a little disappointing, but I'll mark it down to teething issues. Bun was soft, tasty, and fluffy. - $24
Arancini balls were crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside. Can't go wrong! - $18
Parmi was a little small for pricing but I understand that it's also a specialist crumb. The chicken was thick and moist, and the cheese melted perfectly but I found the tomato sauce was sweet to taste (maybe a lot of tomato paste?)- $27

Chips were a definite favourite of mine and reminded me of a classic fish & chip store.

The service was impeccable and everyone was absolutely lovely!
Looking forward to see what they do next and how they will navigate the Port Adelaide market!

Went for tea to support the new owners since they have reopened. Sorry guys the food was really bad, is there anything on the menu that isn't frozen. The microwaves seemed to be working overtime. The menu before the closure was top notch and the food was amazing. The service was good and staff were lovely but why serve mains whilst we are still eating entree, you are actually doing yourselves out of drink sales. It's not like it's super busy and you need the table freed up. Unfortunately unless the food improves we won't be back ??

Decided to pop down for dinner as they reopened this week. We took our assistance dog in training and a couple of friends. Everyone polished off their plates and had a wonderful night. Staff even offered pup water and treats (which we brought with us anyway) and brought her out a tennis ball! How awesome! Love the inclusivity of the menu being 100% gluten free, with vegan and dairy free options too. Couple of teething issues with out online booking and the orders that came out, but no big deal as all was sorted with a smile. Bloody great night and will definitely be back.

Stopped in for lunch, beautifully renovated, lots of tables outside. A few teething problems but friendly staff and plenty of choices for food options. Dip was great, dumplings would have been better steamed, coconut chicken smaller pieces....way tpo much garnish....a few tweaks
But overall support a new local business, definately be back. Would recommend booking first.

We were in for dinner Saturday night, the place was very busy so there was a bit of a wait on food which was understandable.

Food was good but the service was outstanding! All the people working were super friendly and accommodating.

Namely, Felicity who dealt with all of our dietary requirements and requests, constantly checked back on our table and did it all with a huge smile and made us feel so welcome, absolute delight.

We'll be back, thank you !

Okay now this is an underrated place in The Port. Such a chill and funky vibe, lovely interior with artwork and open kitchen in part of the dining area. Spectacular menu, will definitely be back to try more! Food was absolutely delicious, I had the "KFC Burger" and shared the Fried Cauliflower and Asian Greens with my family - also super delicious. 500kg T-Bone was cooked to perfection. Barramundi was cooked perfect and the 2 burgers were delicious - dipping sauce needed for chips though. Friendly, welcoming staff. A must visit!!

The food here is AMAZING!! I've been here a number of times and can't fault it, so yummy, expect to eat too much lol. The service is epic, the staff know how to look after customers, so friendly and helpful. I love the outdoor areas in our new COVID-19 world also.

Not a fan of the wine list, sorry guys. I can usually find something I like but the one I wanted to try was a out of stock. I was offered another 'similar' wine which was nothing like what I was looking for. Lucky they also have an extensive cocktail list!

Dope pub. Excellent food, friendly staff and warm atmosphere. Great place to sit, eat and/or socialise. Special props to the kitchen team for the excellent range of vegan options, but all 'round great experience time after time.

was told i was being rude for asking for a refund on an incorrect meal. kinda ruined my day. food was ok. won't be returning.

I'm not exactly a strident or even confident person. I don't get out much, to be clear. But when my sister asked if I could return her meal for her, because it was not what she had ordered, I agreed.

I presented the meal to staff down-stairs and calmly asked for a refund (after waiting for them to finish talking). The staff member asked what was wrong with the meal and I explained. The staff member disputed that there was anything wrong with the meal (as another member of staff had when my sister had pointed out the issue when presented with a meal that wasn't what she had ordered). And, she added.."Well, you're bein' kinda rude".

I'm really not the kind of person to leave a negative review.. but this was an incredibly ridiculous situation. The staff member explained that someone should have told us there had been a change of menu. I get that. Things happen, it really doesn't matter. I wouldn't have cared if it had been burnt beyond recognition. It wasn't even my food. I wasn't invested enough to be angry or rude. It's not who I am.. like.. at all.

It uh.. it cut pretty deep. I was flabbergasted. I just repeated the issue and was told that the refund had to be in cash and couldn't be on card (which.. I'm not even sure if that's allowed under Australian Consumer Law.. but whatever).

I spent the rest of the family event I was attending confused and hurt.. as I said, it ruined my day and I don't see myself attending this venue again.

Watch for: soggy eggplant, incorrect orders, and egotistical staff.

Best pub in the North West - pop in pretty much weekly for the past few years, food has always been excellent no matter what you get. Passes the pub schnitty test with flying colours.

Always a good selection of beers on tap and the staff are great.

So glad this pub is my local!

The staff are always excellent, food quality and nothing beats a glass of wine under the verandah on a warm summers day.

The chicken schnitzel is exceptionally good, so to are the burgers and the salt and pepper squid. The seasoning they put on their chips is ??'??

Hot tip, the house white is an excellent SA local wine and you can buy a bottle of it in the bottle shop next door!
