Adelaide Oval and Henschke Hill of Grace, both iconic and sacred in their own right, are united in a unique South Australian collaboration known as Hill of Grace Restaurant. Partnering with Eden Valley wine powerhouse, Henschke, the Adelaide Oval Stadium Management Authority has created a culinary journey showcasing the best of South Australia.
The restaurant offers an exceptional dining experience overlooking the hallowed turf. With a menu inspired by the bounty of South Australia’s truly magnificent fresh produce, dishes have been carefully crafted keeping in mind a seasonal food philosophy with a strong focus on the use of locally grown, farmed or fished produce.
Guests have the option of a degustation or à la carte menu, with the opportunity to add matching wines. The eight-course degustation menu delivers a taste sensation from start to finish, including Paroo Kangaroo Tartare with marinated beetroot, rhubarb, macadamia and mustard oil – accompanied by the 2015 Henschke Johann’s Garden Grenache Mataro Shiraz.
