South Australia's Newest Two Hat Restaurant

South Australia's Newest Two Hat Restaurant

South Australia is home to an array of world class restaurants, a foodie’s paradise if you will. This was recently highlighted when The Australian Good Food & Travel Guide announced which South Australian restaurants were awarded Australian Good Food Guide Chef Hat Awards for 2024. This is a great achievement for all the restaurants on the list especially for the talented chefs and their teams.

Designed as an essential navigational and rating accomplice, the Australian Good Food Guide has long been acknowledged as Australia’s most comprehensive authority on the restaurant scene across the country.

The Kitchen at Bec Hardy was awarded Two Hats and 14 points:

  • Top 1% of venues in Australia.
  • Top 15 venue in South Australia.
  • One of only six venues to be recognised in McLaren Vale, ranked joint 3rd.

“We are so proud of the team and especially Connor for this award – he is an up-and-coming star of the South Australian culinary scene. We aim not to just produce outstanding wine but also deliver outstanding food and experiences. This confirms we are not only doing that but doing it well.” Bec Hardy

“This is a great achievement not only for myself but the business as a whole, where I am grateful to be given the latitude and support over the menu and creativity. Being a new kitchen operating for less than 2 years makes this even more prestigious, I am really proud of my menu, food and what I have achieved at The Kitchen at Bec Hardy in less than a year of running the kitchen.” Connor Bishop

The full list is available here along with the definition of all the ratings:

“To be ranked in the same company as some of Australia’s leading venues such as ‘Rockpool’ in Sydney, ‘Nineteen at the Star’ in Brisbane, ‘Cullen Wines’ in Perth and ‘Pt. Leo Estate Restaurant’ in Victoria is humbling. It’s a prestigious achievement for Chef Connor and our small family business.” Richard Dolan, Joint Managing Director
