Maximilian's Restaurant and Cellar Door (Verdun, Adelaide Hills)

The family went out for a lunch at Maximilian's Restaurant and Cellar Door in Verdun in the Adelaide Hills for my sister's birthday. I've heard it's good, and the place met all the expectations.


Kas' Spätzle
I had this as the entree. Thought it was like a fancy mac and cheese...



Duckling Montmorency
Then this dish as the main. This was wonderful. Very filling. Duck was very moist and tender.



Three home-made ice cream; strawberry, vanilla beans and mango

Ice cream was very good.

So we all enjoyed our meal. We enjoyed it so much we booked for the Christmas as soon as we got home. The only problem/drawback I saw was the fact that you have to drive all the way out to Verdun...

Bartons Restaurant (O'Connell St., North Adelaide)

A bunch of us from the lab decided to pay a visit to the Bartons Restaurant up the street. Also operated by Caledonian Hotel, but more upmarket. Used the taste.com.au Split the Bill voucher.

 

I had a T-Bone steak. But... Probably should've gone for the eye fillet instead. It looked fancier and perhaps more tender as well. Neighbouring lawn is always greener, I suppose.

The British Hotel (Finniss St., North Adelaide)

We kept vouchers for taste.com.au "Split the Bill" promotion from the Advertiser. As it was getting close to the end of the promotion, bunch of us from the lab decided to drop by the British for a lunch. It's just down the road from our lab.

 
I had a scotch fillet. I could tell it would take some time before food comes out so ordered a bowl of wedges as well; the right thing to do as it did take some time. As to the steak... I've had a better one before, but after all, it was half-priced. If not then I would have to think twice before getting one.
