Hibernia Cafe – Restaurant Launch

Magill has a new joint in town and boy, does it look and taste good! This cafe is the new addition to Zoi Kokoti's and Stephen Lowery's portfolio of restaurants who also own The Deli and Eirie Cafe.
Walking in you notice the stunning high ceilings and the modern interior straight away. In fact, it only took them 10 days to make it look like that. Is that even possible? Yes! When Zoi and Stephen moved back to Adelaide after having lived in Melbourne, they had the idea of bringing a Melbourne feel Cafe to Adelaide. "We want to take this Cafe up a notch with a high service focus and only using locally sourced products and wine", says Zoi. "The cuisine is best described as modern Australian with a Middle Eastern twist."
Stephen is a trained chef himself and has international work experience. However, he won't be in the kitchen at Hibernia and is leaving it all up to their chef who has worked for well known Adelaide restaurants such as Windy Point and Red Ochre.
We couldn't wait to try some of their menu options and got treated to a great variety on the night.

Sweetcorn Soup with Yarra Valley salmon caviar


Ham Hock Croquette with vintage cheddar and tomato relish


Smoked Mackerel with dill yoghurt, baby cos, apple and braised fennel


Ocean Trout Terrine with house made bread and crispy skin


Black Pudding with crisp potato, maple bacon and caramalised onion


Gorgonzola, ginger & quince cheesecake


Hazelnut & Tarragon Polenta with pecorino wild mushroom duxelle

We seriously enjoyed them ALL but our favorites were the Ham Hock Coroquettes (we may or may not have had more than one..) and the Gorgonzola, ginger & quince cheesecake! What a combination. Delicious!
We don't dine in the Magill area often but that is about to change. Hibernia Cafe is certainly one of a kind in every aspect and we cannot wait to go back and try more off their menu. Welcome, you beauty!
