Mount Lofty House was built in 1852 for Arthur Hardy. It was his summer residence, but it also became a venue for the most lavish parties, where Arthur would take great delight in hosting Adelaide’s high society.
Today, the space has been transformed into Hardy’s Verandah Restaurant – a place which pays homage to the refinement, elegance and opulence the guests of Arthur Hardy enjoyed 165 years ago.
Overlooking the patchwork Piccadilly Valley, HVR diners are treated to magnificent views as an accompaniment to their culinary experience. The team of world class chefs grow and forage right on the property and are focused on highlighting the bounty of the Adelaide Hills in every dish they present. The altitude, rainfall and soil here combines with the passion of the local farmers allow for the production of truly remarkable dishes and as a result, a culinary experience that will be remembered for years to come.
They are blessed to be in the epicentre of one of the food bowls of Australia and fortunate to have ingredients in the kitchen as soon as they are harvested.
For fine dining like you’ve never seen before, make sure you book a table – we guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
