'Topiary' in a botanical sense is the art of clipping shrubs or trees into ornamental shapes. They take years of attention to train, prune and shape into a sculpture that excites you. Determination, creativity, patience and care will get you there, and the rewards will far outweigh the pain once you arrive. 



One of South Australia's Most Unique Dining Experiences

Our Ethos

Topiary is run in a similar way to the household of our ancestors 100 years ago. Only source locally, make everything from scratch, work with whole carcasses and waste nothing. Make the most of our surrounds without harming the environment and support those around you.

We aim to provide a unique dining experience, harnessing that same traditional mindset, but served in a contemporary way to reflect what is happening around us now.


Our Food

Explore what we are surrounded by


Our sourdough baked daily, house-made cheeses or cured meats, local free range eggs, wood smoked bacon and prepared market fruits or vegetables are all part of our breakfast offering. Served with locally roasted coffee or Adelaide Hills sparkling wine.

Allow us the opportunity to show you Topiary's version of South Australian dining. Choose from our Tasting, A La Carte or Harvest Menu. Groups over 8 are required to dine on our Harvest Menu.


Plant Based Dining

We offer a full Plant Based tasting menu. Focusing on a single fruit or vegetable per course, we aim to draw as much flavour and texture as possible from some of the most basic ingredients. Click on the Lunch + Dinner menu above and scroll to the Plant Based Options.
