Here’s what just a few of our guests think of us...
It was wonderful to finally see the Waterfall Gully wedding we'd dreamed of come to life! We're so happy with the experienced service provided by your team, especially in handling the whims of mother nature. The reception setup was picture perfect and a number of guests gushed that it was the most beautiful wedding they had seen! Our delicious red velvet cake was presented beautifully with berries and cream and the food and wine were excellent also. Much love and thanks to the Utopia team x
Courtney and Luke
I know they say to give the credit when it’s due so I would like to let you know how much I appreciate your consideration, and thank you for looking after my requests for our booking on Mother’s Day. You and your team did an amazing job.
We’ve just got back from a lovely lunch at Utopia and I just wanted to let you know how fantastic the service from Andrew was. In addition to that, the meals and coffee are top notch!
Many thanks for making my cousin's 50th a memorable one! Amazing place, amazing staff thank you so much. Have been here many times and best place in Adelaide for high tea -12 out of 10!
Thank you to everyone who was involved in our big day. To say that it was perfect is an understatement. We both couldn’t have asked for a better day, and I can easily say that it was the best day of my life! The day wouldn’t have been as successful as it was without the hard work of the team at Utopia. For that, we are super grateful.
Sophie and Kurt
We just wanted to send a big thank you to Utopia. Our team visited your beautiful venue yesterday for brunch and we had a wonderful time! The food was AMAZING and the service was second-to-none, especially from your lovely staff member Andrew. Andrew did a fantastic job attending to our every need with a smile and was so cheerful and funny. Nothing was too much trouble and he made every effort to make sure we felt looked after. You could also tell how passionate he is about your business and the produce you use. It is so rare to get service like that anymore. Please pass on our sincere thanks to him. I am sure we will all visit again!
The UniSA Campus Central - City East Team
We had a wonderful time at the bridal shower. The service was 5 star. The food was delicious and the scones were the best I’ve ever tasted! Thank you again. The bride can’t stop talking about it!
I have been to two weddings now at Utopia and have been so impressed by the friendliness of staff and their eagerness to please customers. One of my daughters has allergies and is looked after so well with her meal and dessert, even down to providing her with a recipe when she asked. Thank you so much!
Marius and I would like to thank you deeply once again for the excellent handling of our wedding on Sunday. You and your team did a perfect job and helped to make our day most special. Our guests (and us!) were most impressed with the venue, the table setting and the wonderful food and cake.It will always be a cherished memory and it could not have been better.
Francois and Marius
We honestly can't thank you enough for everything you did for us leading up to and on our wedding day. You were so organised and had everything ready to go when we arrived. You helped to keep our minds at ease and even when my heart was beating out of my chest, just before the start of the ceremony, I knew you had everything under control and I could trust you fully. It is very evident that you are a beautiful person, inside and out! You really give 200% of yourself to make sure wedding couples are happy on their special day and we were very humbled that you didn't treat us any differently because we are a same-sex couple. That means so much to us! Hands down, our wedding day was the best day of our lives and we know full well that you played the biggest part in helping to make our day so magical!
Hannah and Ruevae
Word's can’t express how grateful we are to you and your hardworking team. The day was amazing, everything the girls (and guests) could have hoped for and more. Most of our guests were Victorians and they all said it was the best wedding they’d ever been to. Once again, thank you for everything.
Alison (mum of the bride)
I wanted to drop you a line to say how much we all enjoyed our time at Utopia, and how wonderful all the staff and the food/beverages were. Thanks for making the day so easy and fun and for putting up with a table full of rowdy women! I'll definitely recommend your venue to anyone who is looking for a gorgeous function space with great service and produce.
Susi (high tea)
Thank you so much for all your help both leading up to and on our wedding day. Everything was perfect and we wouldn’t change a thing! Natasha, Ross and Melissa, thank you both so much for making our wedding day so amazing. You certainly made us all feel so welcome and nothing was too much for you. Everything was perfect and totally exceeded our expectations right from the moment we arrived to the very end of our reception. We absolutely loved it all! We will definitely come back to Utopia whenever we visit Adelaide.
Tanya and Todd
We loved our wedding day! Your team and all of the suppliers did an amazing job - we had an absolutely amazing night and all of our guests had so much fun. We loved the food and the drinks!

Jo from Harcourts SA
Everything was perfect on the day. We can't thank you and the team enough for your help and ensuring everything was perfect! The waiting staff were so attentive to us and our friends and family, and so welcoming. I can't commend them highly enough! All of the suppliers in the package are fantastic - they were all so helpful in our planning, and I'm so glad that they were part of our day too! I've had friends comment about what a wonderful venue it was and how divine the food was. And the cake - I was worried if there would be any left! The berry coulis was the best I've ever had! It was a wonderful day that we will never forget and we were so glad that we chose to do it at Utopia with such wonderful people.
Kim and Michael
We are so very grateful for the simply superb day you all put on for us. I must say we are still floating on the immense joy and love of the day. Wasn't the weather and the scenery just perfection indeed!?! We are receiving an endless array of compliments and positive feedback for everything - food, music, your gracious support and service. Once again, thanks so very much. We will honestly cherish that memory forever.

Leon and I couldn’t be happier with how our wedding day turned out! We loved the styling of both the ceremony and reception - it was perfect and exactly what I had hoped for. The coordination of our wedding went so smoothly and the staff were so nice and attentive throughout the night - Rachel was also amazing and so helpful! We also LOVED our all vegan menu, we thought the food was delicious and our guests did too. Thank you so much for helping us plan and bring together our special day, we really couldn’t fault anything!
Jamie and Leon
Jordan and I wanted to pass on our thanks for our incredible wedding. The day was everything we wanted it to be and more! All the finer details were there and many of our guests commented on them. We can't believe how great our day was so thank you.
Kate and Jordan
Oh my goodness...I don't even know how I could possibly put into words how incredibly amazing our day was yesterday. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding such a dream come true and so stress free. The food was the best I've ever had anywhere, the decorations were just beautiful, all the staff were lovely and I know all our guests had an amazing time. Can't wipe the smiles off our faces - THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU XXXXXXXXX
Rebecca and Daniel
We are still buzzing from our wedding day! We were absolutely amazed with the overall look and feel of our wedding! The ceremony and reception ran so so smoothly and your staff were so helpful, polite and friendly, which added to the night being so good. Liam and I can't thank you and everyone at Utopia enough for making our dream come true in a wedding that was beyond perfect for us.
Magda and Liam
Thank you Team Utopia for making our special day so magical! We enjoyed every single minute of it and the service from your team and partners was phenomenal. Many of our family and friends have commented on how lovely everything was. Special shoot out the lovely waitress that helped the children in the photo booth too!
Jocolyn and Allan
I wanted to say thank you to you and your team at Utopia Waterfall Gully for making my special 70th High Tea a memorable occasion. All 21 of us had a marvellous afternoon with lovely food, bubbles and great company and conversation – lots of memories made more special by the service that was provided by your girls and chef. I have truly special memories to look back on for many years to come.
Just wanted to thank you to the Utopia @ Waterfall Gully team for pulling everything together for us. The day was absolutely brilliant! Everyone really enjoyed the day, delicious food, great entertainment, brilliant customer service and the list goes on, its a great start forward for our life as Mr and Mrs.

Saturday was honestly the best day of our lives. Everything at Utopia was absolutely perfect in every way. The reception room came together better then I could have ever imagined. We can not thank you guys enough for giving us the most perfect wedding. All of your staff were amazing and so friendly. Choosing the Winter Wonderland package was the best decision we made and we couldn't have picked better people to be part of our day. You have been beyond amazing. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you so much for giving us the perfect day.
Charmaine and Mark
It has been a absolute pleasure having our reception at Utopia, the responses from our friends and family have been so very positive. Justin did a excellent job with presentation and flavours being spot on, and the matching of the wines just right. The table service deserved a 10+, we could not have faulted anything. I know that our guests were very impressed and taken aback, possibly surprised with the attention to detail and the high quality. We will definitely drop in for lunch as soon as we get a chance and recommend Utopia to anyone willing to listen to our story!
Kerry and Martin
Thank you for all of your assistance in putting together an amazing reception. It was a truly wonderful evening, and one that we will never forget. The venue was excellent, the food was superb and the staff were both friendly and helpful. Many of the guests congratulated us on putting together such an excellent reception, which we could not have done without your help.
Stephanie and Richard
Thank you so much for hosting Snowy's Outdoors Crew last night, it was a great night! You and your staff should be commended on their excellent presentation, promptness, efficiency & willingness to assist. The food was excellent and rated very high amongst the guests. We will all be recommending Utopia as an event venue to friends and family.
Snowy's Outdoors Team
We would like to thank you for our wonderful wedding yesterday. We both had the most amazing day and we couldn't have chosen a more perfect setting! The service was exceptional and so many people have said how delicious the food was. To you, Justin and the team keep up the amazing work you do - and I will definitely be recommending your beautiful venue and services to others.
Victoria and Sam
I wish to thank you all the staff for the fantastic lunch we had on Sunday. The food was delicious and very generous while all staff looked after us very well, especially Amber. We were delighted that Blake our chef could come out to speak to us at the end of the meal too!
- Alexandra Beefsteak and Burgundy Club
Our Utopia wedding couldn't have been possible without the fantastic help of our suppliers! We would like to thank each and every one of you for making our wedding absolutely unforgettable. We were privileged to be surrounded by wonderful professionals who take such pride in their work. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you so very much! Kelly, Nat and the team, you made our day run so smoothly, and everyone commented on the wonderful food and service throughout the night. The decor to our wedding was faultless! The detail, the colours, the final touches were just outstanding!
Jackie and Andrew
I wanted to say thank you to everyone for the amazing tea we had to celebrate my daughter Coby’s 21st. Everyone who came along has been raving about how lovely it all was and how delicious the food was. The service and setting were also perfect, so thank you for that too!
We would like to thank you all so so so much for making our day so magical! The ceremony and reception was set up so beautifully, better then anything we had ever imagined! The food, drinks and service was perfection. We received so many compliments on the venue and the food and the atmosphere that you all created for us and we can't thank you enough. All the suppliers in the package, from the flowers, celebrant to the photographer and the hotel were all perfect! You took so much stress from planning and organising off our shoulders and it made it such a pleasurable experience.Thank you all so much for absolutely everything!
Anita and Robert
Just wanted to thank you for organising the high tea for my baby shower last Sunday. We all had a lovely time and the food was delicious! The staff were fantastic especially the owner Justin - nothing was to much trouble for him and he was very helpful!
Daniel and I would like to say how perfect we thought everything was. Thankyou for everything and all the suppliers used in the Winter Wonderland package, everything felt so perfect. All our guests loved the food, the atmosphere and everything about our wedding. We have voted Utopia as our number 1 best supplier for the ABIA awards with perfect scores for everything, we just couldn't fault our day. Thankyou for working your magic! We will always recomment Utopia to everyone. - Krupa and Daniel
Krupa and Daniel
I just wanted to say thank you so much for all the effort and planning you did for our Winter Wonderland Wedding! We absolutely loved the venue! It looked amazing! The food was absolutely delicious. I have been getting so many compliments on the food and how delicious the cake was (which also looked amazing). All of the suppliers were amazing and even better we didn't have to find them ourselves. Could not have asked for a better day. . People always say how stressful it is planning a wedding, but this package made it so carefree. Thank you so much!
Ash and Damien
We have nothing but praise and thanks for you and your team. Our day was more than perfect and I had the best day ever. You went above and beyond and made sure our day was exactly what we wanted! I loved our reception room. It was gorgeous. The uplight was beautiful. Loved the cake - I loved it all. Everyone commented on how fantastic you and your staff were on the night. We are recommending your venues to everyone we see and telling them they will not be disappointed. You're so professional and that really shows!
Amy and James
Daniel and I had the most wonderful experience. Everything was so perfect, every little detail was thought out and allot of care and love was put into everything. We just couldn't be happier with how beautiful our wedding day was. Everyone loved the service and the food. All the suppliers used were so lovely to work with. Couldn't be happier!
Krupa and Daniel
Just wanted to say a big thank you to yourself and the team for putting together such a beautiful high tea for Sienna.The cake, decorations, food ect were beautiful. Thank you for being so accommodating and we will defiantly be back!
Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful wedding for us. It was more beautiful, fun and relaxed than I could have ever imagined! The Winter Wonderland package had the most amazing suppliers involved, and throughout the night and afterwards, we received compliments on all. Guests kept asking 'where did I find this or that supplier' and I had great joy in being able to say they were all part of the package. The attention of the Utopia staff on the night was amazing and we have had many guests mention it to us afterwards. The guest with the egg allergy was amazed when you hunted her down with her own personal tray of canapés as she normally misses out. The bridal party also loved how we had our own canapés waiting for us after the photos. The vegetarian guest said it was the most amazing sweet potato gnocchi, and everyone loved the beef and chicken which were cooked to perfection and so tender. The staff were like hawks at keeping the glasses full or whisking away empty bottles. Guests also had many compliments for the beauty of the building and grounds, and we loved how Kelly was like a silent ninja snapping some photos of the reception throughout the night. We will get to enjoy the memories and photos of the night for years to come, and enjoy future meals in your restaurant while being able to reminisce on our wedding.
Cherry and Ben
I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful hospitality at our high tea yesterday. The 'mocktail' for my pregnant friend was very generous of you, many thanks. We couldn't believe how you looked after my friend with her gluten free diet, truly amazing! She was just hoping for one item of gluten free and received a whole menu! Can't wait to come back soon, definitely my favourite eating place!
Thanks so much to the whole team at Utopia for taking care of us so well. Everything worked out really well, it looked stunning and the food was delicious (we were eating cheese 'cake' for a week!). We really appreciate the work that went into making an event with so many variables work so well.
Gemma and Ryan
Our Utopia wedding day was just divine. We could not have imagined how amazing it would be. To be able to share this very special day with our family and friends after being together for 21 years was perfect and to have our five grandchildren as part of our celebration was priceless. Our thanks to you all for your help prior to our Wedding day and for your excellent service to all of our guests at our beautiful reception. Faultless! A day we will never forget!
Sue and Jason
Thank you so so so much Kelly for eveything you and your team at Utopia did for our special day! It was absolutely amazing and we couldn't have hoped for a better wedding. Thanks again so so much!
Courtney and Colin
The wedding was absolutely beautiful we enjoyed all of it - and thank you again for all your help throughout. You and the Utopia team made it a really fun enjoyable experience and took the stress out of planning and organising and that made a huge difference. You really know what you're doing!
Jess and Tom Jarvis!
Thank you so much for all of your help while we were planning our wedding, you guys were all so amazing and helpful with absolutely everything. Everything worked out so well and the place looked absolutely stunning! We had a fantastic night and can't thank you all enough for making the whole night run so smoothly. We have received so many compliments about how beautiful Utopia is and how delicious the food was.
Rebekah and Jack
It was truly a breeze getting married at Utopia. Not only was it close to home, but all the planning and running of the day was made simple and it is simply stunning! I think we were very lucky to have such an experienced, yet well priced venue, celebrant and photographer - you don’t often get such great value and experience. We also couldn't fault you (Kelly), Cass, Justin or any of the staff at Utopia – you always knew what I was talking about and the things we needed to organise and came across so kind and caring. And everyone raved about the food - I think you have a few more Facebook fans! We will definitely be back to support such an amazing business and family and continue to recommend you to our friends and family. We're sure to see you soon.
Molly and Caelum
Just wanted to say thank you for an amazing event last Saturday. Everything at my son’s 1st birthday high tea was great. All the girls who were helping were really nice and professional, and made sure everyone was getting good service.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for organising such a lovely birthday lunch. My guests and I had a really good time and enjoyed the delicious food and superb service. Everything was perfect and I've truly enjoyed myself!
Thank you so much for everything! The wedding was absolutely awesome - everyone was wonderful, the place looked amazing, and you are lovely. Thank you so much over and over!
Jess and Jared
We had such an amazing day and all of your staff were so helpful and accommodating. We created memories we will never forget! The room looked so good and people are still talking about the delicious wedding cake. Thank you again for everything.
Nick and Chentelle
We had the most amazing wedding day, thank you so much! I'm still on a little high but also feeling a little bummed that it's now all over. Was the best day ever by far!!
Jess and Todd
Firstly I want to say sorry, I think I may have gushed a little too much, but we are just so very happy!!!! We want to say a massive thankyou to you all. Our ‘Winter Wonderland’ wedding was AMAZING! Every last detail was perfect from the decorations, the fairy lights (and I LOVE fairy lights), the food, the service, the staff. It was the perfect start to our married life and the joining of our family, and the perfect setting to celebrate with our nearest and dearest. I want to make a very special mention of Sarah who really did all the hard work and who honestly was just lovely, no matter how many questions we had she was always willing to help and honestly made our day as special as it was. She was always friendly, honest and professional, we couldn’t have asked for a better person to organise us or our wedding!!! We only decided to get married 7 weeks and 2 days before the event after seeing there were a few dates left in September - although we had talked about getting married, it was your Winter Wonderland packaged that spurred us into action. I had been married before and spent 2 long years planning every stressful little detail of that day, and so much still went wrong. I am a busy mum and the sheer ease of having so much done and organised really appealed, not to mention that Waterfall Gully and Utopia are 2 of my favourite places on earth. As part of our package we got to meet with different vendors you had chosen. I’m guessing that some first time brides would find that daunting and would rather have complete control over every aspect of their wedding - to those people, honestly I’ve now done it both ways and this was by far the best way. I have never met a more professional and lovely group of people. Save yourself the stress and the time you will waste running around and book one of these packages. These people are the best of the best, and we were able to relax in the lead up to our wedding and just enjoy ourselves on the day because all of this had been taken care of. Did I mention we organised all of this in 7 weeks and 2 days? That would not have been possible without this amazing team of people. The whole process was just FANTASTIC!!!! We could not have asked for a better wedding. We actually feel incredibly lucky to have had such a great team involved to have had this experience. So thank you for the wonderful wedding, amazing food, a beautiful location for a stunning reception, for organising everything and for organising such an amazing group of suppliers! We honestly were so happy with everything. Our wedding was just perfect and truly/literally wouldn’t have happened without you.
Renee and Brendan
Thank you for a wonderful set up at Utopia, you guys sure know how to throw a shindig! Everything went really smoothly and the food was amazing. Very impressed, the blue looked very nice. You’ll see us at Utopia for a coffee sometime in the future, thanks heaps for you time and effort!
Phil & Amanda
Thank you very much for our wedding - everything was perfect, everything we imagined and more. I think we will definitely fly back to visit for our first anniversary, it's such a magical place!
Sherilyn and Matt
Just wanted to say what a wonderful job you and your team did today! We had a lovely time, the service and food were second to none and everyone enjoyed Audrey's 60th. Thank you all for a wonderful day.
I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything last Saturday! Everyone had such a wonderful time and remarked how good the food, wine, service and setting was. Please pass our biggest compliments to chef Justin - he did a sensational job with everything. Thank you also for all of your flexibility with the event - the tables, cheese, keeping the cakes out - all of that was exactly what we wanted and helped make for a very special day! It truly couldn't have been better!
Graham and Darcy
I just wanted to flick you a quick email to say thanks and to let you know we had a lovely time at High Tea yesterday. The food and service was outstanding, so much so that I had to shake hands with the chefs and thank all the girls for a job well done! We will definitely be back to spoil ourselves in the future, keep up the great work guys.
Thank you so much for a truly wonderful wedding day! You and your staff were friendly, organized and delightful throughout the whole process. We were thrilled that every guest loved the décor, commented how magnificent the food was and the service was excellent. Thank you for accommodating all our requests and creating a fairy tale wedding day that we will cherish always.
Wendy and Mick
To the amazing team at Utopia Steve and I can’t thank you all enough for everything you did to make our wedding day perfect! Right from the start when we booked in our date and came to the venue to meet Sarah and start arranging the finer details we were blown away with how friendly and accommodating everyone was. Nothing has been too much trouble for anyone and we have been made to feel like we were very, very special guests (even though you have so many other bookings to look after). Your entire venue is absolutely stunning and the attention to detail is amazing. I don't even know where to start when describing the food!!! Choosing the menu was one of our hardest decisions because everything sounded delicious (especially that dessert menu). I wasn't able to eat much on our wedding day because I didn't have much room in that dress, but I made sure I jammed in every last mouthful of that sticky date pudding for dessert and rest assured we will be returning regularly to sample more menu items. My friends and family are probably sick of me raving on about just how perfect our wedding day was, but I couldn't fault anything and will be recommending Utopia to anyone and everyone who will stand still long enough to listen! Well done team Utopia - please pass on our thanks to each and every staff member! You will no doubt see us there regularly from now on.
Emma and Steven Bailey
I was the Military Member that was at your restaurant on ANZAC Day for lunch (we had the Bully Beef). It was an honour to have the Owner and Head Chef giving us table service. It was a pleasure to dine at your restaurant, your staff and yourself made all of our party feel special and welcome. I have travelled all over the world in military career and your restaurant had the finest food, friendliest and most welcoming staff I have experienced. Once again many thanks for your service, it was a special day after what we have endured overseas.
Just wanted to thank all the staff at Utopia for arranging such a lovely high tea for my friend's bridal shower on Saturday. We all thoroughly enjoyed the morning and I really appreciate all the effort you went to in arranging such a wonderful high tea and accommodating our requests. I will certainly be recommending you to other people for functions in the future!
Thank you for our perfect wedding! The reception was stunning. The food and cake were gorgeous, the night went so quickly I wish we could do it all again. We had a really wonderful, fun time. You should be so proud - Utopia and the entire team really are magical! The perfect setting, the perfect venue and the most divine food. It definitely holds a special place in our hearts now.
Louise and Mark Ward
We would like to thank you all for the preparation and the attention to detail that you provided to us for our very special Valentine’s Day Wedding. Everyone had such a beautiful memorable day. We received so many compliments on the meals, they were all absolutely divine. Utopia really is a very special place to enjoy making the memories of such a momentous occasion. We couldn’t fault a thing. We are so glad we chose Utopia, we will continue to visit because we love the environment of your friendly staff and the to die for food…especially the desserts. Our wedding cake was gorgeous.
Louise and Mark Ward
Thank you very much to your entire team for the wonderful experience we enjoyed in celebrating our mum’s 80th birthday at Utopia. The service, food and atmosphere was fantastic and all those little touches you provided demonstrated a very professional approach. Mum had a great day as we all did and everything was just so easy. Your staff are to be commended on their quiet, professional yet relaxed approach to ensuring the day was stress free. We will readily recommend Utopia to friends.
Just wanted to properly thank you and recognise your absolutely immaculate, professional work at our wedding. We knew it was going to be good, but in the end we were flabbergasted by exactly how good it was! Everything went brilliantly and we don’t think we could have possibly had a better day, or one that fit any better with exactly what we were after. We are so, so pleased we chose Utopia!
Sally and Alex
I wanted to send you a massive hug and a big thank you. Rob and I absolutely loved our ceremony and reception. We could not flaw a thing. Every time we speak to someone about our reception venue, we feel humbled and grateful that we chose Utopia. From the 'get go', you have been completely professional and also willing to listen to our ideas and work them into our theme. When I was planning the wedding, I had an image in my head of what it would look like - well you ladies and your team nailed it! I wish I had some more time on the night to be able to soak it all in. I chose Utopia over other reception venues because of the setting, your story and the personable approach I've heard and read so much about. Rob and I look forward to returning, not only every year for our anniversary but often. Utopia hold's a very special moment and memory in my heart. Thank you to everyone that was involved in making our dream come true!
Elena and Rob Williams
We just wanted to thank you so much for a wonderful Sunday afternoon lunch, our team of staff absolutely loved the venue and the food and are still talking about it at work today. Your waiting staff were exceptional, helpful and polite all day and made our annual Christmas lunch something to remember. I am certain from all the positive comments that our staff will be re-visiting Utopia in the future.
Riverside Family Medical Practice
Kelly, you are such a lovely, kind hearted person to work with, along with everyone at Utopia. You made us feel so relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire planning of our special day. You helped us on such on a personal level that we felt like you were just as much invested in the preparation of our wedding as we were. Nothing was too much to ask - you don't get this kind of level of service at most venues! The room looked so pretty and almost magical with the fairy lights and intimate lighting, we could not be happier! I also want to say a massive thanks to Justin and his team, the food was fantastic and everyone has expressed how happy they were with the food - no one left hungry! Thanks again to everyone at Utopia, we can't wait to come back and make more special memories.
Josie and Matt
I wanted to tell you the afternoon was perfect. The venue, the staff, the food we could not fault and can honestly say it is the best high tea we have experienced! Your staff were wonderful, even noticing I didn’t eat much and they gave me yummy food to take home. The gluten free lady was so impressed with her food and has told so many people. I have had phone calls, text messages and cards from my friends saying they had the best afternoon and most of the messages were about how lovely the whole afternoon was and how much everyone just loved your venue and food. We all talked about how you do everything so right, you deserve to be very successful. We would recommend you without any hesitation and you will see many of us back again.

I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone at Utopia who helped my new husband and I on our journey down the aisle yesterday. You really made it the most perfect day! I will not hesitate to recommend you to everyone I know (I may have already done this and you may have a few brides heading your way). I was really worried about how everything would fall into place on the day but I really did not need to, everything was seamless which left me with plenty of time to mingle...and dance :). Even when one of our guests admitted that they had forgotten to RSVP with a food allergy, this was handled perfectly and a suitable meal was quickly put together for her - she was very thankful for this. Special mention to both Sarah and Kelly who have endured a year of 'frantic bride emails', I could not have done it without you both. Your communication and can do approach through the whole process was wonderful and I am so grateful. Thank you for giving us our magical day xx
Karen and Luke
We had such a great time at my birthday dinner. Everyone seemed to have so much fun talking that the time flew by! Please let the young ladies know how wonderful they were, and what compliments they received from many guests.
Thankyou so much for everything! Our evening was perfect, and we have had so many rave reviews from our guests about everything from the food to the venue!!! We can't thankyou enough for hosting our perfect wedding.
Leigh and Travis Cardinal
I just wish to thank you and your staff very much for helping to make Elaine and Robin's wedding day such a wonderful and memorable occasion. We have had such lovely comments about the beautiful venue, superb meal and professional service. Please also pass on my thanks to the team for all their assistance in the planning process - it was very much appreciated.
Claire Smith (mother of the bride)
I want to say a big thank you to you and your lovely staff for making my birthday high tea very special afternoon. We had plenty of delicious food and drinks, you truly spoilt us! It was so good to have that beautiful breeze flowing through, looking at the amazing view. Most of my friends had never been there or had a High Tea so they will definitely be back, they were very impressed. Certainly my family and I will be returning, cant wait to see you guys soon!
I had a very memorable afternoon last Saturday for my 30th birthday high tea, and I must say that the decor, service and food were absolutely amazing! Everyone in your team did a remarkable job.
We were so happy with how everything went on our wedding day. You totally nailed it with the lolly buffet and cake set-up, that looked awesome! We had lots of compliments about Utopia too - the service, food, renovations - our guests were all very impressed, as were we.
Pip and Andrew
Hi there, Thank you for a great lunch yesterday. When one of your staff asked if we were celebrating, we said yes, 51 years married. We didn't expect the lovely surprise you can see below. It made our day really special.All of your staff are so welcoming, attentive, and helpful. They are very nice. And, the food - beautifully presented and delicious. We loved it all. Regards,
Virginia and Les Poole
A HUGE thank you to everyone at Utopia for making our wedding such a beautiful day. We have had sooooo many compliments about what a gorgeous place it is, how intimate the ceremony felt and how delicious the food was. Thank you for all of the amazing, extra small touches that were added to the room.
Kara and Nirvano
Thank you so much for the incredible ceremony and reception you created for us. Our wedding was all we ever dreamed for and more. So many people have asked if it has been challenging planning the wedding from overseas, but I could honestly tell them it has not been a problem. This is entirely because of you, the packages you offer and your willingness to help. Utopia is the most gorgeous setting. I loved the lush winter day we had and it didn’t bother me that the ceremony was shifted to the terrace. In fact, we were glad as you created such a majestic, warm space. The reception room was more beautiful than I ever imagined. How lovely is Utopia at night! It was so exciting to see our guests admiring all of the little details we'd worked on together. The food...yum! What lovely menu options we had to choose from and you pulled off our choices perfectly. It just kept on coming too... I am sure you slipped in some unexpected treats!? Our guests were gob-smacked by the quality and quantity of the food, not to mention the impeccable service. All the staff were so friendly and attentive. Thank you also for making my all-time favourite cake. By golly, I've never tasted such a light and delicate lemon poppy seed cake. It was delicious and the buttercream icing was the best I’ve ever tasted. Many, many thanks and wishing you all the success you deserve!
Kath and Scott
I want to take this opportunity to thank you and your team at Utopia for the amazing job you did, from the lead up to the wedding, to the day itself. Living interstate made organising things a challenge, and I was dreading how complex it would be. However, once we found Utopia and settled on it as a venue, it became clear that things would run smoothly and easily. Everything was simple, and you were great with answering questions and helping out with every aspect of the reception. The room was beautiful, better than I could have imagined, and the cake was great. Thank you again for making our night exceed all our expectations.
Elizabeth and Richard
Thank you for an amazing breakfast event, everyone commented on how nice the whole day was. The food, service and setting are exceptional. I have posted lots of pictures on Facebook and many people were asking me all about Utopia, so you will get some good advertising from me there! It is always hard to please everyone and our guests included a chef, some hospitality workers and very hard to impress Italian family, so it was an absolute success in every way! I am so happy and will recommend your restaurant to all of my friends and family.
I want to start by saying the biggest thank you ever. From the day we first came to Utopia, we knew in that very moment we would never find anywhere as magical, perfect and “us” as your beautiful little piece of paradise and we weren’t wrong! I can’t thank you enough for answering every single question (whether it be something important or completely irrelevant) so quickly and with such professionalism. When our final meeting rolled around we felt extremely at ease and had no need to stress because we knew it was all going to run smoothly. Perfect doesn't quite even cover our day; there are no words to precisely cover how we felt. You all went above and beyond for us and all of the little special touches you added for us were absolutely never expected and are very much cherished. The moment I caught first glimpse of our beautiful ceremony set up, I was in complete awe and shock! You always visualise how you think things will look, but I never expected that. Your amazing planning took my imagination to a whole new level and really made it a fairy tale. We very much enjoyed the use of the retreat with our bridal party and loved the canapés – as did everyone else I’ve spoken to. Then when you took us to see the reception set up I was once again completely blown away. Everything was spectacular and the little flowers added into the centrepieces were just sublime. It was all very soft, pretty and above all, very romantic. Romantic was exactly how I wanted it and you ticked all the boxes (plus those that never existed in the beginning!). Everyone who I have spoken to has raved about the food and the service. As always, the food was absolutely amazing - you have a very talented team in the kitchen! Nothing was too hard or couldn’t be done. Our wedding was completely us - romantic, perfect and utterly amazing. There is nothing I would do differently. You are all incredible and very talented. We have great pleasure in telling everyone about the magic of Utopia.
Aiden and Terry Coyne
You all did such a wonderful job transforming our ideas into a reality! We can't thank you enough! Every single little detail was perfect! You should all be very proud of your ability to work as a team, to create simply stunning receptions and to make every single person feel looked after and happy. We are so grateful that we had the opportunity to celebrate our future together, at such a unique and special venue.
Deanne and Michael Lindsay
Thanks to you and your team for the amazing job you did with both our ceremony and reception. It was no less than perfect in every way. I must commend you on the way that you handled our wet weather option, which turned out to be just as good if not better than our original choice! The terrace location provided a romantic, fairy tale feel with spectacular views of the waterfall. Everything we requested was executed perfectly. The room looked amazing! The food was a real treat thanks to Justin and his team, we had many comments and compliments from guests about how unusual it was to have a breakfast reception, and how the food was so much better than the usual wedding food. I have taken the time to rate you (very highly) on ABIA and intend to highly recommend your services to anyone who is looking for a venue. You truly created our dream day, it was everything we had hoped for and more.
Nicole and Michael
Our day was amazing! You have the most amazing team there at Utopia, we couldn't have asked for a better day and night. Everything was perfect - cake was beautiful, outstanding food and Sarah and the team were just wonderful! You have the most beautiful location, you should be very proud of what you guys have built because it was perfect!
Vick and Chris
I wanted to send a huge thank you to your whole team for everything that was done to make our day so wonderful. There are several aspects I would like to mention in particular... Firstly the service on the day. Sarah and her front of house team did a truly amazing job, there was not a moment that our drinks got low or we wanted for anything. Sarah in particular was simply amazing, there was a sneaky crawl to top up Damon’s drink during speeches to make sure that she did not disturb anyone’s view or disturb the speeches, and also making sure that she brought over my glass and topped it up whenever I was talking to someone! I cannot rate the service we received high enough, and it is the aspect of any event that makes all the difference. Secondly the food, please thank Justin and his team for their amazing food. Our guests have used many superlatives to describe the food in the past week. I have never had such an amazing steak and I know the Barra was equally amazing, the canapés and starters were also delicious. I don’t think anyone could fault what we received in any way. The salmon starter was beautiful and the sausage canapé was a particular hit! Also the service of the food was brilliant. I was expecting that it may take some time to get around to all the tables but the mains seemed to all be served in a matter of minutes which is again a tribute to your service staff but also the team in the kitchen, I have no idea how they did it! And finally everything else, the whole day was done perfectly. From the moment that I first saw Sarah who was dealing brilliantly with a couple of last minute changes, everything ran like clockwork. I will admit that I can’t really comment on anything else as everything went so smoothly that I didn’t really notice any other aspects of the evening which is how it should be, the music was changed seamlessly, the running of the day went perfectly. Also I also enjoyed two other trips to Utopia while down in SA, and on both occasions again the service and food was fantastic. I have been blown away by your venue, staff and food. Organising a wedding from Interstate and only seeing the venue two weeks before the big day has not been easy but I would like to thank you and your staff for all your help and for making it such an amazing and perfect day.
Damon and Sophie Innes
I'd like to thank Utopia's management and staff for making my daughter's wedding one fantastic event. The setting, the decorations, your food and friendly staff and service. What can I say - PERFECT. You have my deepest heartfelt thanks for making it truly a day to remember. Thank you for your attention to detail, friendliness and professionalism.
Robert McClure (Father of the Bride, Tamara and Shaun)
I wanted to take a minute to say thank you for an amazing lunch last Friday. My partner and I came to you on a RARE kid free date to celebrate my 40th birthday. We came on the recommendation of a colleague and I can with all honesty say that we could not fault a thing - from the service to the scenery. And the food, OH MY GOD the food, probably some of the best we have ever eaten!! I will be raving about that salted caramel tart for years to come. Anyway could you please pass on our thanks, we will definitely be back both with and without our two children.
Hi Kelly - we just got back from our honeymoon and Chris and I would like to thank you, Justin, Sarah and the rest of the team at Utopia for making our day truly memorable! We couldn't have wished for a more perfect wedding! The room looked so stunning, the cake was amazing and tasted like heaven and the service was brilliant. I just wished I ate more of the gorgeous food you kept bringing out. We would recommend you to everyone, Utopia will forever be a special place for Chris and I and we can't wait to come back.
Emma and Chris
Thank you for your wonderful service at the wedding of Christopher and Emma last Friday. Your main asset is your staff and their friendly, smiling, nothing-is-too-much-trouble attitude. The food quality was excellent, varied and plenty of it. Thank you! Please pass on our appreciation to all staff who were working.
Everything in the room looked amazing, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding location than Utopia! Everyone that I've spoken to since had a really good time and have not stopped commenting on how beautiful everything was that night.
Jess and Ashley
I am simply writing to thank all of you so very much for your assistance during the planning process, set up, presence and service for Shaun and my wedding. I can honestly say that there are no words to say how grateful we are to you all. All of my guests have raved on about how amazingly set up Utopia was, and how wonderfully delicious the food was! But most of all, EVERYONE LOVED the service we received that night from the Utopia Family, you guys truly were the most polite, happy, friendly and spectacular people. You all made the night everything I could have ever dreamed of, and for that, I am lost for words to tell you how thankful we are. I would also like to personally thank Sarah for absolutely everything you did leading up to my wedding day, and for all of your effort on the night. You are the sweetest, most bubbly person I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. I cannot commend you enough for your efforts and I will highly recommend your services to anyone and everyone for any event they plan on having. Once again, thank you SO SO very much for making our wedding day breathtakingly amazing.
Tamara and Shaun Grimley
I have no regrets in choosing to celebrate one of the most special occasions in my life, my twenty first, with high tea at Utopia @ Waterfall Gully today. You have a beautiful venue and gorgeous decor. The food was fabulous and we certainly left more than satisfied with both the quality and the quantity! Most importantly, your team was so very hospitable and friendly. Thank you for allowing me to honour those nearest and dearest to me in such a grand fashion. You lived up to your reputation and my high expectations!
I just wanted to congratulate you on the wonderful experience that your team delivered at your a la carte dinner on Saturday night. My fiancée and I had looked into your beautiful venue last year for our wedding this year, however sadly you were already booked out for our date. All of the people who have weddings with you are so lucky! We really enjoyed everything on the weekend. The atmosphere was great, but nothing compared to the service. And the food was delicious!! Please pass on the congrats to all of your team!
We had a truly fantastic night. Everything was just perfect...thanks to you and all your efforts! The food was amazing, our guests keep telling us the food was delicious. Everyone enjoyed the surprise part of the wedding...including my reluctant mum and dad! We are so glad that we chose Utopia - everything was just perfect....exactly how a pictured it. Thanks so much!
Angela and Daniel
I just wanted to say thanks to you and your staff for my birthday lunch. The food was superb/brilliant and the birthday cake fantastic! The service provided by our waitress was just lovely, so accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. She’s a real asset to your staff! And believe it or not all the rain, hail and the waterfall flowing at speed made the setting all the more perfect!
We were very pleased with our high tea celebration at Utopia and the wonderful service received. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was done quietly and pleasantly without any fuss. Our guests commented very favourably on the quality and quantity of the food, and they all loved the venue. Many of the guests didn’t know of the venue or hadn’t been there for years! The service provided by Sarah and Fiona was excellent! Sarah did a great job organising and running the event and Justin created some great food! All the above led to a wonderful afternoon which will be long remembered! We have no hesitation in saying that Utopia @ Waterfall Gully will be recommended at every opportunity to all who are looking for a place to hold a function for any special celebration.
Barbara and Malcolm Uren
My husband and I would like to thank all the staff at Utopia @ Waterfall Gully for making our wedding day so special and memorable. The food, the decorations and the attention to detail were second to none and we will hold the memories that you helped us to create very dear for many years to come.
Gary and Ebony
Thanks again for everything that you and the Utopia team created for us. Everything was just perfect, we could not have been more pleased. The highlight was definitely the two cakes - we are so glad we had both and were very impressed with the cheese cake. The cheeses were just phenomenal! Everyone commented on how lovely the food was and how perfect the reception was. The most common comment people made was that they loved the little touches that made it so perfect. You’ve left us with amazing memories of our first day together as husband and wife, thank you so very much.
Mandy and Ashley
Thank you so much for making our day something we will never, ever forget. We simply couldn’t be happier. You didn’t miss a thing and its very clear why you are winning award after award. A huge pat on the back to you and your amazing team. Our day was perfect and there is simply NOTHING we would change! Justin – to you and your chefs, the food was fantastic and everyone commented on it. The front of house team was sensational, I could go on forever! Kelly – you are a magician! Your support and effort in the planning process was second to none. We will recommend you guys to EVERYONE!!!!!!
Anelle and Simon
Our wedding day was amazing and perfect, thank you so much! You far exceeded our expectations with everything. The food was beautiful, and from what I hear the pork was a real hit. We were more than pleased with how everything turned out and the decor choices all complimented each other well. The room was absolutely gorgeous - very romantic and maintained the heritage feel. The entire Utopia team on the day/night were very accommodating - we had a family member who was very impressed and grateful for the offer of assistance with her little one, and the toys that were offered to keep her entertained. Thank you again to the whole Utopia team!
Jess and Kyle
Hi Kelly and everyone at Utopia! Thank you once again for the fantastic morning this past Saturday. We just laughed our way through the morning and had respite from personal worries and concerns...and the food as usual was sumptuous. Thank you and we will see you again, sooner rather than later!
Kelly, we would like to thank you and your team for helping to make our day so special. Everything went so smoothly and our guests had a wonderful time. The room set up was gorgeous - everything I wanted and more! I would like to personally thank you for all of your help during the many months of planning. I'm not sure how I would have done it without you. Thank you so much for our day, it was absolutely magical.
Bec and Alex
Thank you for a great Valentine’s evening on Thursday the 14th. The food was amazing, the venue was beautiful and the service was second to none. Thanks for going to so much effort!
I just wanted to say thank you as breakfast was lovely - my first time to Utopia. The service was exceptional from the booking to the friendly welcome and table service we received on the day. Beautiful food also, I will happily recommend more people to visit. It was a very good way to start the day, and a great place to bring my guest from Finland!
Thanks to all the Utopia team for making Sue's birthday bash such a wonderful night! We have had nothing but positive comments on the presentation of the room, the wine selection, Justin's wonderful food, the general ambience of Utopia, and your wonderful and attentive staff. There is no more positive advertising than word of mouth, I am sure repeat business will follow from our wonderful experience.
Sue and Ian Bassham
Where do I start?! A huge 'Thank You' to Utopia, we can all see why Jessica and Shaun selected this location. We have had so many comments regarding the venue and the reception on Saturday: - The preparations leading up to the day - wonderful. - The room - simply gorgeous. - The food and beverages on the day - superb. - The staff - amazing (they were so attentive and helpful all night). We all had the best day ever, and everyone at Utopia just topped it off. It ended like a family celebration party which is exactly what Jessica and Shaun wanted. Thank you all so very much for a wonderful day and night, we will definitely be recommending your services to everyone!
Wendy (Jessica's mum)
We can’t thank you enough for all the work that you guys put into ensuring we had such a special wedding day. We have such fond memories of the day and have been recommending Utopia to everyone – whether it is just for lunch or for a function. Thank you to your entire team!
Elaine and Sue
I have been waiting for a chance to brag about our big day at Utopia! I can't have wished for a better day. The food was stand out spectacular, service was friendly and warm and venue looked beautiful. You made our dreams come true. We dreamed of a simple yet enchanting day and this is exactly what Utopia gave us - with the minimum of stress or fuss. I loved it. I have had numerous emails, texts and phone calls from my guests raving about our ‘high tea’ wedding. So many people are amazed that we got it so right. There were no problems on the day and it all went according to plan. Even the weather was good to us! Thank you for creating memories that we will treasure always.
Rebecca and James
We absolutely loved how our reception looked and received nothing but great reports on the location and look of our reception and most of all, the food - especially the barramundi and Utopia's famous chocolate fondant! Thank you so very much for creating our cake too, it was absolutely beautiful and the most amazing cake I had ever tasted! We would both like to thank you all for making our wedding reception dreams come true! It was the most perfect day of our lives, and the best way to start our future together as husband and wife.
Amy and Steve
Thank you SO MUCH for everything you've done for us. We couldn't possibly have been happier with how everything went on our big day, from the room decorations, to the amazing food and wonderful staff. Since the wedding, we have had more than half of our guests make a point of saying how much the enjoyed our wedding, the reception in particular. People have RAVED about the food and the service, with most agreeing that it was the best wedding they had ever been to - which as a bride is soooo good to hear!
Louisa and Gwain
Utopia was simply magical. The professionalism, organization, care, and attention to detail that Kelly and Justin applied to our every request was outstanding. Our guests are still talking about the divine food, especially the cake! An exquisite place to hold our Surprise Wedding. Everything in the one location, flawless!
Rebecca and Tamara
David and I wanted to thank you and your wonderful staff for the amazing job you did for our wedding. We couldn't have asked for a better night and setup. Every one of our guest loved the food and some commented on how efficient and friendly your staff are. Both being in hospitality we can really appreciate how hard it is to find great staff, and we could not flaw any of them. We are still enjoying the cake and a part of me hopes it never runs out! Thanks for making our wedding so easy to plan as well, I have no hesitation in recommending you guys to other people. Keep up the good work!
Fiona and David
On behalf of the Adelaide DeVines club, I would like to thank you both for organizing a wonderful dinner for us. The setting was lovely and the food and wine were excellent. Some of the girls said it was one of the best dinners we’ve ever had. The wines all matched the food very well and introduced us to some lovely new wineries. So thank you very much for organizing such a great night, I’m sure you will see some of us again for breakfast or lunch soon!
Our wedding day was absolutely splendid and more than we could have asked for! You did an amazing job of the reception room. Everything was placed as I had requested and all the centrepieces and trimmings made it so romantic and cosy. We also stumbled across your lovely 'thankyou card' in our gift box, which was a nice memory of the team. Thanks for helping to make our wedding day one that we will remember for all the right reasons.
Tania and Rahad
We would like to thank you for such a memorable wedding day at Utopia. Everything went according to plan and the food was just amazing, so many people commented on the desserts especially. The scenery was just fantastic in Waterfall Gully at this time of year too. We will always remember your restaurant and its great food. It is a credit to you and your team and you certainly haven't seen the last of us!
Ryan and Mily
Breakfast at your establishment was absolutely wonderful. I just wanted to express my delight for both the meal and the setting it was consumed in. The fireplace and the service was warm and inviting and the drive was magnificent. Despite breakfast just being a stop on the way to the copper coast, I have found talk about Utopia has featured predominantly over our weekend. I will definately be back and will hopefully have encouraged some of the myriads of people I have told/intend to tell about Utopia...although it's good enough to want to keep it a secret :)
Ours was the best wedding reception ever! We had the most amazing wedding day and evening, the Utopia staff did a wonderful job throughout the whole night. What a cake, wow! Absolutely the best tasting cake we have ever had, and how amazing was the damask? I’ve never seen something so perfect on a cake! We can’t thank you enough for making it so magical for us, such a perfect wedding.
Sherie and Adrian
Thank you so much Kelly! We had a ball on our wedding night. The reception went off without a glitch, a real credit to your staff. We'll absolutely be back, don’t you worry about that!
Kim and Jake
Words cannot describe how happy we were with our wedding reception! It was perfect, the food, room decorations, service - everything. Thank you for such a fantastic effort. It was absolutely beautiful up there, we could have stayed there all night. We really think it has to be the best wedding ever! A few of the guests have said that when they get married, yours is now the only place they want to have their receptions. We were so pleased that everyone we spoke with thought it was one of the best weddings they had been to!
Steve and Tania
Thank you again for the wonderful celebration of our wedding on Sunday afternoon. It is clearly obvious why you have received the accolades you have in relation to your whole enterprise, and more specifically in relation to your weddings. Everyone we have spoken to in the last couple of days has been greatly impressed by every aspect of their experience at Utopia, and it is a credit to you both. Thank you again, you both do such a magnificent job.
Margie and George Forbes
Dear Kelly - we had such a great time at our brunch at Utopia! We laughed, giggled, ate too much and laughed some more! We had the greatest time. Thank you so much for everything you do for our group. Many of our members come from domestic violence situations and other abuse areas, so to see all the ladies laughing so heartily was just great! Thank you! Thank you! You and your team are wonderful - your staff look like they really enjoy working at your eatery...a great place! See you next year for the group (but you will definitely see some of us earlier!!).
Hi Kelly, just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to all your staff and especially yourself in helping to make my 40th birthday lunch very special! The table, cake, food and service was fantastic. Everyone had a great time. I can’t wait to come back to enjoy the walking tracks and then stop off for a bite to eat…..
The wedding was wonderful and you all did a magnificent job. We are very grateful and pleased with the way everything went, it was such a wonderful night! Our sincere thanks for making our day so special.
Graeme Martin & Silvana Forlini
Thank you so much for setting us up with a special table on the terrace on Sunday for our first wedding anniversary. We both loved the food - complements to the chef! Best salt & pepper squid ever, which is high praise indeed from a fussy eater! Also loved the chicken pot pie and side potatoes! Service was friendly and obliging too, so good on the girls. We are hoping to be back again soon.
Kent and Suzi
I am writing to thank Kelly and the team at Utopia for the absolutely fantastic service at Stacey & Chris’ wedding. The way you jumped in and helped with the cakes made such a huge difference to the way the night went. It is rare that people are so willing to go out of their way to help problem solve, especially in such a calm, caring and friendly way. It is obvious to me that you understand just how important weddings are to both the couple and their guests. I really believe you would do anything to help make the day run smoothly, above and beyond what is expected. It didn’t feel at any point like it was an inconvenience for the chef to ‘whip up’ extra icing, or for the staff to help fix the cakes – even though it was a completely unexpected extra job for you on the night. I have been telling friends and family how wonderful you all were, and will continue to wholeheartedly recommend you whenever I have the chance.
Thank you for all your help along the way in planning our reception – it is easy to see why you guys have won the best wedding venue! You make everything a lot easier to deal with and it is much appreciated :)
Shannon and Ross
Our day was wonderful and a big part of that was thanks to Utopia. The venue was simply gorgeous and I couldn't believe how wonderful it looked when I walked in to the room. The service was excellent, in both the lead up and throughout the reception. Your staff all had a smile on their face and were happy to assist with any request, and just helped provide a lovely atmosphere. The food was just amazing and all the guests were extremely happy with their meals. The cake was fantastic and I've been getting asked a lot where I got it from! It was delicious and looked amazing. You provide such a stunning backdrop and venue for a reception, and we are just so happy that we chose Utopia to celebrate our wedding.
Kim & Rod Linthorne
Kelly, Justin and staff - thank you for making our wedding day fantastic! The food was awesome, all the guests raved about it. Very much appreciated.
Rachel & Adnan
Thank you soooooo much Kelly, Justin and the amazing staff at Utopia. Joe and I and ALL of our guests were so impressed with absolutely EVERYTHING! It was absolutely beautifully presented, the food was to die for and the service was second to none. We might just do it all again!!! So many people said it was the most beautiful wedding they've ever been to. So thankyou for making our day extra special xxxxxx
Kayla and Joe Howlett
Just to let you know that ALL of us really enjoyed our lunch with you on Saturday! Your staff were very thoughtful and attentive, especially when we asked to be moved indoors because it was warm and windy (and playing havoc with allergies!!). The food was beautiful and great sizes as well. We will certainly be back and will bring other friends!
Dear Kelly - I just wanted to say a huge thank you to yourself, Justin and your amazing staff for the absolutely beautiful wedding reception. Everyone was over the moon with the food, decorations, lighting, the cake and the service they received. I'm sure if I had chosen another venue I would have been extremely disappointed. Many thanks for everything!
Melinda and Garth
Everyone thought the whole day was amazing and we had quite a few people say that it was the best food and reception they had ever attended! Jason and I were extremely happy and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all that you did for us. The ceremony and room looked absolutely stunning and your attention to detail was outstanding, especially considering the last minute changes due to the weather. We will definitely be back for more amazing food soon!
Amanda and Jason
Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special. Everything that we wanted to happen did happen. We were very pleased and can't thank you enough!
Michael and Angela
We would like to say a big thanks to the Utopia team for all your efforts on and leading up to our big day. All of our guests had a great time and commented on how it was such a lovely venue and that the food was amazing. The room looked beautiful and had a great atmosphere. We had a perfect wedding and we are very happy that we chose to have it at Utopia!
Kylie and Jason
I was fortunate enough to be at Utopia for lunch on Sunday, and I have to compliment you on your wonderful staff! Everyone we saw was smiling, happy, friendly and clearly really enjoying their job. We were served by Georgina on her very first shift, and she was incredibly friendly and accommodating. It is so rare that I go out and can compliment an entire group on such outstanding service.
Thank you for everything Kelly, we had a wonderful night! Thank you for everything you did to ensure the night ran smoothly, it really was a very fun and relaxed celebration.
Danielle and Michael
Thank you for an awesome wedding ceremony and reception! The food was delicious, the venue looked amazing, and everyone had a great time. Can't wait to come back really soon.
Ali and Damien
My bridal shower high tea on Sunday was absolutely wonderful, just perfect! Thank you so much for all your hard work.
Thank you so much for our wedding. We had such a great night and it was fantastic working with such a helpful and friendly team. Everyone we have spoken to had a great time and absolutely loved the venue and food, the cake in particular was a huge hit!!
Aly and Brian
Thank you Utopia for a beautiful morning! I celebrated my birthday breakfast in your stunning restaurant with a dear friend and it was just lovely. The big gully breakfast was so delicious and filling (definitely didn't need lunch!), the hash browns were particularly yum, the coffee was perfect and the staff were so pleasant and the atmosphere so gorgeous - we'll be sure to return and spread the word!
Thank you all so very much for a fantastic lunch. We were celebrating a special occasion with friends and your service and food were nothing short of exceptional. We all have been salivating ever since over your delicious food, and we will be recommending your truly unique restaurant to all our friends and we hope to return very soon.
We were not quite sure which colours we wanted, but you were so helpful in creating the beautiful soft, elegant look we hoped for (but didn't quite know how to achieve!). Thank you very much, you are very good at bringing everything together to make the perfect look. We are very happy with the decorations we have chosen and now can't wait to see it all set up!

Put simply, our breakfasts were the best we have had in Adelaide. My eggs benedict was exactly how it should be cooked but very seldom done: eggs perfectly poached and full of flavour, REAL ham off the bone, baby spinach just wilted, topped with house-made, perfectly balanced hollandaise. All served on toast which actually had flavour and didn't break my teeth. Coffee was strong and delicious, great attentive, friendly service. The prices were comparable to most good breakfast places, but the quality was so much higher in every way. I couldn't fault the whole deal. I'm sure we will be back, and soon! A perfect breaky in a perfect setting.

Just wanted to send you a bucket of positive feedback after such a lovely lunch at Utopia. We had a great experience in your beautiful place; food was amazing, surroundings the same and the girls looking after us just topped up the whole experience. Please let the waiting staff know, they are doing a great job in their polite, personal and not too pushy way of waiting.
Thank you so much for everything, and I mean EVERYTHING! You did a fabulous job...it all looked so beautiful. Thanks again for your wonderful work, we were so lucky to have chosen such a gorgeous wedding venue with an even more gorgeous family to help us celebrate our special day xx
Danielle and Chris

Thanks for making my son's 2nd and my aunt's 70th birthdays so special. We can't wait to come back for Mother's Day!
We had an amazing time at our wedding! Your staff were so wonderful and made us and our guests feel so looked after and special every second of the evening. Also, the accommodation you arranged for our wedding night was stunning. It was an amazing suite that was a perfect end to a perfect day. We can't thank you enough!
Jules and Steve
I wanted to send you a thank you to say how much we enjoyed the evening - everything looked beautiful and the staff looked after us very well. Many of our guests commented on how good the food was and how much they enjoyed the atmosphere of the venue. And our birthday cake tasted as good as it looked!
Cathy and Dave
Oh My Goodness, I don’t even know where to being! The venue was amazing and beautiful and I loved all the surprise “extras”. I received comments and compliments all night in regards to everything – especially THE FOOD!! I know we said how important it was to have great food at our reception, and Justin managed to rise above our extremely high expectations and provide a meal that made me proud and ecstatic that we chose Utopia. Your staff were simply amazing and we were so well looked after it was fabulous. It was personal and beautiful and intimate, and every single guest told me how much they enjoyed themselves. I cannot thank you enough for the perfect setting, meal, service, smiles, warmth, help and did I mention the perfect food?! We couldn’t have asked for anything more
Leah and Dan Marsh
Just want to let you know how grateful we are for the beautiful reception you arranged for us. The food was magnificent and the wine you recommended was superb. Everyone commented on how patient the waiting staff were with all the grandchildren running around. We couldn't have asked for a better or more professionally organised wedding. We would highly recommend you to anyone wanting a truly well run and professional team that takes all the worry out of their big day.
Jeff and Chris

On behalf of our family and all our guests I wish to offer our heartfelt thanks for making my wife’s birthday celebration such a wonderful occasion. Your staff made each person feel they were as important as the guest of honour! I will have no hesitation in recommending you to all.
Sunday's lunch was an excellent celebration in a delightful venue. The room looked terrific! Lots of favourable comments from our guests. We were thrilled with everyone's professional efforts. You should be very proud.
Deb and Joff Middleton
We had a great time, the food, wine and coffee were excellent. The restaurant is a credit to you both and the open fire, atmosphere and staff are and very friendly and welcoming. We look forward to coming back soon!
Thank you so much for an incredible lunch on Saturday! I left with a VERY full and happy belly - so full and happy that I didn't eat dinner that night which is pretty unheard of for me :o)
We had a wonderful wedding – it really was perfect! The room was lovely, staff were great and the food (of course) was delicious. Everyone REALLY enjoyed it. Thank you for all your efforts and making it so special – we really loved it.
Clare and David
We just wanted to thank you for a marvellous lunch yesterday, our friends from Tasmania were most impressed - and so were we. The food was superb and your choice of wines really complemented it. We hope to come and see you again soon.
Bevis and Margaret Kennett
We tried out Utopia @ Waterfall gully today, the food is absolutely fabulous, the presentation – brilliant. We will be happy to go there anytime to have a meal and a get together.
Had a lovely breakfast at Utopia today. Atmosphere and service perfect thanks guys, will definitely be back.
Thanks for a beautiful lunch today, mum and I really enjoyed the great food. You really do have a very picturesque location.
Sunday lunch with the family to celebrate our Ruby wedding anniversary was truly memorable. Next time we're over from the UK we'll be back!
We had a wonderful lunch. Thanks so much to you and your team for making it such a lovely afternoon!
Thanks so much for making our wedding planning so stress free for me. I can’t tell you enough how much I appreciate it!
Leah Wiles, bride-to-be
We had a wonderful night and it was a wonderful venue, and everyone who came really enjoyed themselves.
The seminar went very well and the feedback was VERY positive, so well done to all. Many of my guests commented on the lovely current ‘feel’ of the place. I couldn’t think of anything you could have done to make it better. Perfect!
We wish to thank you all for making the wedding so special. Great venue, presentation and hospitality - which we will recommend highly to others seeking a wonderful night.
Paula and Des King
We had a wonderful time at Elias’ special day! My parents and guests were very impressed with the venue and food.
Thank you all for making our wedding reception all that we had hoped for. The food, the drinks, the décor and the service were all fabulous and we really appreciate the effort that everyone put in to make it so. It was indeed a wonderful night. All of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the evening and, despite our ‘nerves’, so did we!
Gary and Elizabeth Muir
Congratulations to you all for hosting and truly executing a great night for both of us and our beaming new family. All our guests are still raving about it! You two and the brilliant crew of Utopia set the benchmark for events in every way. Brilliant job - be proud.
Andre and Jo De Laine
Arron and I would like to thank you all for making our wedding day the best day ever! Everything was perfect, from the room decorations to the plentiful amounts of food and OMG the cake. Family and friends have been raving about our wedding with comments such as ‘it was the best wedding they have ever been to’. Our family are all big eaters, but you had them turning down food and leaving not being able to eat another thing. That’s a big success! Big thanks to Kelly and Alex for the amazing job you both did with room setup and always being contactable before the day to answer any questions or queries we had, it was so nice to instantly have our minds at ease. Justin - your food was beautiful and it really topped the day when everyone got to try the cake. It was the nicest cake we and our guests have ever eaten! Thank you all so much for allowing us to have our most memorable day at Utopia.
Torey and Arron Brown
I cannot speak highly enough of our experience at Utopia. Your staff are amazing, everyone was so well looked after and the compliments we have received from our wedding guests on the venue, food and wine have been outstanding. We had such a wonderful time and cannot be happier with the dedicated service and experience you provided.
Miriam and Joe Whitford
I would just like to thank you for a fantastic ‘surprise’ breakfast on Saturday. The table looked beautiful, staff amazing and food even better. I have been recommending you to everyone I speak to!
