The Best Steakhouses In Adelaide Boasting 150-Day Aged Beef, 700-Gram Steaks & More

If someone ever told you that art can’t be tasted, bring that person to Adelaide’s finest steakhouses.

Restaurants and pubs like La Boca Bar and Grill and A Hereford Beefstouw prove that a well-cooked 700-gram rib eye or Ranger Valley Tomahawk is a masterpiece you can savor.

But, hey, we’ll let you be the judge of that. Here are our favorite steakhouses in the city. See if they’re to your liking!


Address: 127 The Parade, Norwood

Contact Details: (08) 8330 3300

Operating Hours:

  • Mon – Closed
  • Tue to Sun – 6 pm to 12 am


The first thing we saw at Arkhe was a beefy behemoth of a wood-fired oven. It wasn’t just for show, as it’s where premium cuts from SA producers get kissed by the fire.

Scot Black Angus strip, Mayura Station strip loin, and Wagyu rump of all sizes sizzle here. The beef hit our wallets, though, as the prices start at around 150 bucks—a worthwhile investment for bold and succulent steaks.

As for the drinks, we were offered a 150-bottle selection, consisting of SA vino must-haves, from Shiraz to Chardonnay.

Tip: If you plan to dine out during holidays, remember to budget extra, as there’s a 15% surcharge in place.

Most first-class steakhouses prefer a dimly-lit atmosphere, but A Hereford Beefstouw mixes things up with its bright ambiance, courtesy of its Scandinavian aesthetics.

Patrons, including our team, will never say no to their Tomahawk, grain-fed and aged for a whopping 200 days. The dedication and craftsmanship can be tasted with every bite of this nutty, rich, and buttery cut.

But if a titan of a Tomahawk doesn’t do the trick, there are varieties like rump, ribeye on the bone, eye filet, and New York sirloin, ranging from 160 grams to 1.5 kilograms ($32 to $110).

We’ve always been attracted to the magnetic pull of a bustling open kitchen—particularly if that kitchen is La Boca Bar and Grill’s.

Here, you can sink your teeth into Argentinian-styled steaks, such as their signature selection, featuring beef like Ojo de Bife, a Kerwee Black Angus Scotch filet with a 3-marbling rating.

There’s also Entraña (skirt steak), known for its strong beefy flavor and pronounced grain. Lomo (eye filet) is a great pick, too, as it’s a tender cut with a mild, delicate essence.

We’ll never grow tired of praising The Kitchen for pulling off a stellar menu mixing high-end grub with classic Aussie hits—think caviar with crisps. However, it’s this modern Australian joint’s fire-pit steaks that keep us coming back for more.

A few of our usual orders include the 250-gram Roam Wagyu striploin, the grass-fed 220-gram tenderloin, and the 500-gram Cape Grim rib eye, which cost around $59 to $125.

To drink, craft cocktails and beer take the cake for those who want to keep it casual. On the other hand, diners feeling fancy can opt for whites and reds by the bottle or glass.

Don’t go to B’Churrasco Brazilian BBQ Restaurant if you aren’t game for a meat mania. Offerings here aren’t pint-sized, and the chefs don’t hold back when it comes to the robust Brazilian marinade and seasonings.

As for our favorite, we’ll give the crown to the garlicky rump cap, best gobbled with a side of their prized chicken thighs and pork neck.

To sweeten things up, you can order scoops of vanilla ice cream drenched in chocolate syrup or a cup of Brazilian crème caramel finished with almond praline.
