RESTAURANT Orana, Adelaide: Awarded three chef hats and named 2019 Restaurant of the Year

Orana, Adelaide

Named Australia’s Restaurant of the Year 2018 by Gourmet Traveller magazine and Restaurant of the Year 2019 by the Good Food Guide, Adelaide’s Restaurant Orana boldly uses ingredients like bunya nuts, green ants and quandongs to create culinary works of art.

restaurant Orana’s menu has been carefully curated by Head Chef Jock Zonfrillo, and celebrates the nutritional properties of Indigenous ingredients, while respecting the produce’s relationship with the land.

The Aboriginal philosophies to heal and be healed by the land and to always give back more than you take strongly influence Zonfrillo’s culinary philosophy. Each dish celebrates aspects of Australian culture, from the ancient to the modern.
