Indi had a fantastic time with her friends, thank you so much for making it so special for her. Being able to have this special high tea with her close friends was so wonderful.I've been recommending Utopia's high teas to anyone who will listen! The celebration cake was stunning - and I hear the blue hydrangeas were a special touch from your own garden, so lovely!Thanks again for all your help with setting this up, you were an absolute delight to collaborate with.


Hi Kelly, I just wanted to thank you for a lovely day. The food was lovely, ambience cosy and warm and the staff fantastic. Not to mention yourself who has been amazing all along! We will definitely be back.


I had a wonderful lunch today, and my friend had the buddha bowl which she really enjoyed too. I am so grateful to you and the staff for accommodating my food request. I am looking forward to letting others know of the great customer service, view and of course the delicious food!


Excellent service today! Felt like a real Queen. My favourite place in Adelaide! Anyone can make an egg, but not many have a real sense of exceeding expectations by adding the extra level of service. Thank you and keep it up.

Magic! Utopia is nothing short of magic every visit we make. This one was a little bit extra special after 2.5 years separated, we enjoyed a scrumptious breakfast reminiscing with my parents who have arrived to visit from Canada. Our first magical moment was 10 years ago when Kelly, Justin and team made our wedding the most carefree and happy night of celebrating love. Your dedication to perfection in all areas of your business shows with every visit and we love the respect and appreciation you hold for your guests. Your staff are a credit to your passion and this morning's team were no exception. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and we look forward to another visit very soon.

Janine and Josh

Thankyou so much for making our Baby Shower sooo perfect! Everything was so beautiful including all the arrangements, food, staff. We are so grateful to you and your amazing team for organising such a beautiful event. You made us feel so special 😊

Shainee and Nav

We both want to thank you Kelly for making everything so easy to deal with. People have been commenting on how it was just the wedding for us, and much more fun than other formal weddings. Thankyou again, we had a fabulous time! 

Julie and Chad

Thank you for your input into making my 80th birthday such a happy occasion yesterday. I had many compliments about the choice of venue as we could spread out and have the whole place to ourselves. Everyone enjoyed the meal, in fact some called it “exquisite” so please thank your chef for an excellent choice and presentation. I had some qualms about the effect of COVID but we had plenty of room to move at the tables and in walking around. Your timing and service kept the night flowing and I was able to relax and really enjoy being with friends and family.


We found Utopia to be a charming venue - lovely atmosphere, terrific staff, and very nice food. It was a wonderful setting to celebrate Naomi's birthday. We will definitely be back to Utopia for future special occasions!

Tamara and Cory

Thank you so much for a fabulous high tea experience on Saturday! We all had a lovely time and the food was amazing!


Utopia was amazing. All the staff were friendly and accommodating. Dave who looked after our table was humorous, professional and took very good care of us. The food, we could not fault one dish or one thing on the plate. It was just beautiful and so enjoyable. The flavour was amazing, the meat was tender and the meal was beautifully presented. Well done to the Chefs. The view was amazing and the room cozy and warm. It was a great location and will definitely be returning. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!


I cannot thank you enough for making Sarah's birthday lunch perfect!! Every detail was perfect, the lengths you went to to accommodate us was amazing. Your service and support on the day was next to none! Utopia will definitely be in top of the list next time we have a celebration!


What a lovely lunch we had at Utopia (with friends). The beef cheeks were amazing, as was the pork belly.....& not to forget the rosemary potatoes! The desserts (especially the apple/cinnamon pudding) were mouth wateringly good. Fantastic service by Dave...what a lovely fact all the wait staff were so friendly and helpful. Just a beautiful place to have lunch....we all felt very pampered & t'was very reasonably priced. Oh yes...the wine list was terrific!


Thank so much for a great day. The staff were amazing and the high tea food was great. The scones were delish!!

Lara had such a blast, she said it was the best time she’s had in years. Thank you for organising her beautiful and memorable event! We both enjoyed ourselves thoroughly! Food, drinks, and service were all excellent! Cannot recommend having an event here enough!


Had a lovely brunch here, set amongst stunning scenery. The staff are lovely and service was quick. Definitely one of my favourite spots to enjoy the serenity away from the hustle bustle of everyday life!


We had a booking on Sunday and I would just like to acknowledge the wonderful service we received from Bernie during our time at your restaurant. She was friendly and nothing was too much trouble and we came away very impressed. We will definitely be back due to the experience we had!

Karen and Darryl Wood

Had a wonderful lunch today with friends. Food was great. Bernie, who was our main waitress, was fantastic. Friendly and fun, caring without being intrusive and all in all an impressive ambassador for this lovely establishment. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Grant Mattiske

We had a wonderful time, made to feel totally welcome, food was the best and there was plenty of it. The staff were attentive to our needs and it was worth the travel.

David Shipton

Today we went for a family lunch at Utopia and as usual left happy because the service, food, surroundings, atmosphere are the best around. Thank you to utopia for keeping your business as good as ever! Always happy to visit again and again.


Thank you so much to you and the team at Utopia for everything that you did on the wedding day - from setting up to looking after us and our guests on the night. Everyone did an amazing job and it looked even more amazing than what I had envisioned. We had so many of our guests comment on how beautiful the set up was and how much they enjoyed the food and the atmosphere of the entire evening. So thank you so much to you and the team, the service provided was exceptional. We truly enjoyed working with you and will certainly be recommending Utopia to others!

Kylie and Michael

Just great - plus what a wonderful location!


Thank you so much for everything today, my parents, friends and family were so impressed with the food, the location and the gorgeously decorated table. It set the scene for a lovely day of reunions and reminiscing. The staff were wonderful, and the team leader Bernie was fantastic with a great sense of humour and she made everything flow smoothly. And the cheesecake was to die for! Thanks again for helping us create some amazing memories today for mum and dad's golden wedding anniversary.


Just want to say a big 'thank you' for a most enjoyable lunch. Excellent service and food: we had a great time!

John Aue

We just want to give you and your wonderful team at Utopia the biggest heartfelt thanks from the bottom of our hearts for helping us with the biggest day of our lives! You made everything run so smoothly and we didn't have to worry about a single thing! The location of Waterfall Gully is one of our favourite spots and combined with the wonderful lunch reception we couldn't have asked for a better day! We would also like to thank you for letting Troy bring his beloved Motorbike along and really making it personalised, it really all came together better than we could have imagined. We would have that day a thousand times over again just to experience it again, it really went way too quick!

Jade and Troy

Just wanted to take a moment to thank the whole team at Utopia so much for making our day so perfect, we had an absolutely fantastic time and would highly recommend Utopia to all!

A great place to celebrate any event! Nicolla the event coordinator was great, so professional and detailed - making my celebration and everything just beautiful! Andrew did not take his eyes off us, in anything we needed! My family and friends were so happy to be there and the food was delicious! Keep up the great work and thank you for adding such magic on my special day.



Had a wonderful High Tea for my Mum's 70th birthday and the staff were attentive and very friendly. Fantastic food - and a birthday cake to boot!



Went there for breakfast with friends and had great service from friendly staff. Excellent food. Beautiful views. What more could you want?



Thank you very much for this morning - everybody loved our breakfast event and we all want to return to Utopia in the near future!

Italian Made Car Club


Had a lovey birthday high tea! We were so impressed with you, and how you kept tabs with me on how the afternoon was going along (eg letting me know in 10 mins the scones are coming out, and then cutting the cake). Thank you so much!



My family and I were served today by one of your staff members, Andrew. As soon as we entered the doors he made us feel so welcomed. His persona and attitude were remarkable. He made us feel so happy to be there. Especially in this time with all that is going on, he had a smile on his face and his service was far and beyond. Andrew is someone that is so needed in the hospitality industry, thank you so much for such an enjoyable day!

Michele Rice


Utopia is super fantastic! Thank you Natasha for helping to organise our wedding through this crazy COVID time! Fantastic venue, great food, wonderful staff - also a great price.

Wendy and Darrin


So good to be back for breaky!! Never disappoints! Always good food and great service - love getting in there and and having a catch up with Bernie. Keep up the amazing work guys!



We recently celebrated my mum's 70th birthday with a High Tea at Utopia. A BIG thank you to Beth and her team for making it such a special day, Mum is still on cloud nine! Friends keep asking who made her delicious cake too (orange and almond - made by the chefs at Utopia)! Beth's attention to detail was impeccable and the afternoon ran seamlessly. The team were wonderful in accommodating and pre-empting all of our requests. With COVID-19 restrictions we had limited time to plan. Beth was fabulous in helping us put together such a memorable occasion at such short notice. I cannot recommend Utopia highly enough!



Thank you for holding Fay’s 1st Birthday Party at Utopia, I am above the moon on how everything went. The set up was perfection so pretty with the pink & purple, the food, service, cheer & friendly atmosphere and the wonderful venue with the beautiful chandeliers above us, adding to some extra sparkle. Thank you for also adding extra sashes on the day as well, such amazing people, you totally didn’t have to! You go above & beyond to create magic. Thank you for being part of a beautiful celebration for our daughter and some beautiful memories to cherish.

Elise Harris


Thank you so much for your assistance is putting together the perfect celebration for Lincoln’s christening. You went above and beyond in uncertain times.

We have already recommended a friend to enquire about getting married at Utopia as we were so happy with our function!

Alison Haddy


We cannot thankyou and Utopia enough for making our special day as amazing at it was! Everything looked amazing, the staff were amazing and the food was delicious too! The staff were always checking if we wanted anything, the service was great! Thank you so much for working so hard to make it come it come to life and for all your support on the day and leading up to the wedding. We haven't stopped talking about how great the day and Utopia was.

Emma and Lawrie


Six of us dined for a Friday lunch and had already decided on the three course special. We could choose anything on the menu, it was great value for the quality. All of the meals were beautiful. Well prepared, thoughtful and utterly delicious. The dessert menu was terrific, my soufflé was superb and my husband has declared the pear tartin one of the best desserts he has eaten. Thank you to the whole team and the wonderful staff who looked after us so well with professionalism and warmth.



A very big thank you for such a brilliant night. The attention to detail was one hundred percent, the room looked absolutely stunning, the staff couldn’t have been faulted and people were raving about the food. The contact we have had with you over the last few months has been impeccable. We’ve had so much fun working with you, the leadup to the wedding was seamless and you made the night so special for our bride and groom. We are very grateful to have been able to work with you and thank you for all your time and effort in putting this special event together.

Sonya (mum of the groom)


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 & Luke


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.



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!



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.



Thank you for helping make me the most cruisey bride. I had no stress at all on my day because I had absolutely no doubts that you had everything under control. Thank you to everyone at Utopia for being amazing and having our day run so smoothly. Both Jay and I had the most amazing day! Such a beautiful place and a beautiful venue. I am so grateful for your amazing service, food and personal touches with everything. If anyone asks me I will without fail be recommending Utopia as a venue because the place and the staff are absolutely next level amazing!

Jasmin & Jay


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!



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!



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!
