Local fresh cuisine
paired with fine wines
Thunderbird is Port Elliot's newest Restaurant and Bar.
With a strong focus on seafood and tapas Thunderbird's menu is fresh and regional and as a consequence is regularly updated to pair creatively with seasonal produce.
Meals are designed to be shared with a selection of bar food, tapas style share plates and substantial main meals. The dessert and cheese menus offer a delightful finish to the dinner, lunch or even double as a meal in their own right with locally made cakes and a selection of cheeses from Alexandrina and the Adelaide Hills. The thoughtfully designed breakfast menu offers contemporary favourites with a signature twist.
The bar menu features a curated selection of local wines highlighting little-known regions and quality boutique producers from Mt Jagged, McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek. International wines add further depth to this selection with imported varieties from France and Italy. The bar menu is finished off with a generous selection of craft beer, spirits and signature cocktails.
Built alongside the quaint and heritage listed old
Port Elliot post office, now a gallery housing the works of talented regional artists, Thunderbird has a sophisticated edge.
The polished concrete floors, combination of reclaimed red brick and natural timbers and quality design attributes, present a chic ambience and characterise the bespoke charm of Port Elliot.
We look forward to welcoming you to Thunderbird.
