I love trying new food and new restaurants. My other passions are Origami and Pokémon

Located along Angas Street in Adelaide, Seven Stars Hotel offers both classic pub food and more "upmarket" dishes that are part of their seasonal specials, which are rotated twice per season. The pub proved to be quite popular with the locals, with a crowd of a good size when we visited.

The dishes we tried during our visit were all part of the seasonal specials - Cajun barramundi fillet, harissa chicken breast and wild mushroom gnocchi. The barramundi fillet in their Cajun barramundi fillet dish easily flaked apart with a fork and the Cajun coating delivered a delectable spicy hit. To provide relief from the spiciness, the barramundi came with a sweet mango salsa and a couscous and spinach salad, which had some feta to add a bit of saltiness.

Their harissa chicken breast was very juicy, with the harissa glaze providing a spicy flavour that was not as intense as that of the Cajun barramundi Fillet. We found the quality of the cherry tomatoes and asparagus served with the chicken to be excellent. The asparagus still had a bite to them and the tomatoes had a good amount of sweetness. Some cauliflower puree served as a base for the dish; its earthy flavour complemented the other ingredients well.

To our delight, the gnocchi in the wild mushroom gnocchi dish were light and fluffy, and the combination of enoki, porcini and oyster mushrooms gave the dish a delectable earthy taste. The herb butter the gnocchi were tossed in subtly enhanced their flavour. The inclusion of spinach gave the dish a fresh appearance. There were also some pine nuts to provide some contrast to the fluffy gnocchi.

The pub offers some deals to make eating there more affordable. Schnitzels cost $10 on Tuesdays and you can get burger and beer for $20. The décor of the pub gave it a warm and rustic feel. Street parking is available along Angas Street.
