Why eat at sane places, when you could choose quirky?
Adelaide is often touted as one of Australia's sleepiest major cities. It is the brunt of many jokes where people say nothing much happens there but, as we all know, it is the quiet ones that are often the quirkiest. Below is an insider's guide to Adelaide and South Australia's three wackiest restaurants.

Transport yourself to the exotic
The Bombay Bicycle Club has its entrance surrounded by glowing urns and flowing water and watched over by tigers. It is almost like you have stepped into an Indian safari park. In the Rikki Tikki Tavi bar, you will find a 2 tonne carved wooden elephant.

Upstairs you can watch the waterfall flow down a two storey atrium as you take up the wonderful Indian vibes.

The Bombay Bicycle Club is located in the Ovingham Hotel at 29 Torrens Road, Ovingham, South Australia.

Why does the slightly, not socially acceptable appeal to us?
What is that about toilets that fascinates us? It is as if every city seems to have some quirky restaurant that revolves around their strange toilets and Adelaide is no different.

At Birdies, The Tapp Inn at the Kent Hotel, people come to eat and play golf but they leave talking about the toilets.

As you go in to the toilet, it seems as if everyone can see through every cubicle, however push the lock on the door and a reflective shadow like a frost appears on the door so people cannot see in, however those inside can still see out - weird!

If you're still in need of more strange toilets go up to the men's toilet outside this restaurant and you will get a beautiful view of the driving range from the urinal.

Located at 76 Rundle Street, Kent Town Hotel, South Australia
