I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

Classic Mediterranean flavours with a modern twist are on offer at Georges on Waymouth
. Established in November 2002 by husband and wife team George and Voula Kasimati, they have just celebrated seventeen years of feeding the fine folk of Adelaide.

The innovative menu
is seasonal and highlights the quality of South Australian produce. An example of this is the entree of local swordfish with taramasalata ($23) which tasted even better than it looked. The octopus entree ($24) was grilled to perfection and was charred but tender with a salty/sweet sauce. In keeping with their ethos the breads, pastas and desserts are all created daily in house and the sides are also of high quality.

The signature dish of Lamb Press
was very rich, tasty and extremely filling but the sirloin was outstanding. Vegetarians have a few options and many of the items are gluten free. They are fully licensed
with an extensive choice of local and international wines and do offer BYO wine for $25 corkage per bottle.

As well as being an evening fine dining establishment, Georges On Waymouth
is open for breakfast
& lunch (Tuesday - Friday), private functions or a quick espresso. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful and the ambience is suitable for couples as well as groups.
Next time we are in Adelaide, I will be sure to dine at Georges on Waymouth as really want to sample from the dessert menu!
