Stamps- consistent, reliable and exquisite

Stamps just keeps getting better and better- we've been coming to each menu for a few years now and never have we had a bad dish, problems with service or a negative experience. Not many places you can go to of this calibre over 4 times a year every year and say that about. The food- this is local produce, treated with respect. Sometimes the menu seems simple- don't let it fool you into thinking this isn't highly complex flavours that are balanced perfectly. They take everything to the next level- it's not just well cooked - it's presented amazingly. It has all the finishes you want and gets it right- consistently. Love stamps and will keep coming to every menu for as long as you'll let us!

Who knew?!

Who knew? Tucked away in the suburbs but easily surpassing other more lauded CBD restaurants, Stamps was a delightful surprise for a family birthday lunchtime celebration: Intelligent food combinations, generous servings, exquisite presentation, sensational flavours and nice pacing between courses; the service was friendly and courteous, but not irritatingly effusive. Between the six of us we sampled most of the entrees and main courses on the menu and every offering was consistently high class. The dishes were, without exception, extremely tasty with beautiful textures and colours and garnishes that really pulled their culinary weight! Every dish was so satisfyingly well conceived. One of the best restaurant meals I have enjoyed for many years. Well done, Stamps! I will DEFINITELY be back.

Stamps exceeded our expectations for a suburban Adelaide restaurant, we having recently relocated from London. The food was exceptionally well presented and the combination of fresh, quality ingredients was absolutely splendid, making for a truly dazzling evening of new flavour combinations. The service was excellent, with every waitress being absolutely delightful, plus the Monday night deal of three courses for $65 plus free corkage made for great value for money as well. Stamps is deserving of its Chef Hats and arguably deserves more than it has already been awarded. We especially enjoyed the duck main course - using pomegranate and grapes was a surprising yet effective taste combination for us.

Setting the standard for 2015

Stamps has set the bar very high with their current summer menu. Entree to beat will be the miso pork with the main of Duck (as pictured) the best 'all about the duck' dish I have ever had! Service cannot be faulted and the food we had on monday night was at the peak of what Stamps does- beautifully presented, delicious flavours and balance, brilliantly cooked. They excel at both flavour and technique. Can't wait till we return to try more off this menu

having been going to Stamps at least 4 times a year since 2010 I can confidently say that this restaurant is one of the most dependable when providing great food, fabulous service and a wonderful night all year round. We attended on Monday 10/11. The restaurant was full to capacity. Despite this, the staff (including the most wonderful Sebastian) made it look simple. Professional, diligent, friendly, attentive, comfortable- these men are the standard for great service. The food was immaculate, great flavours, fabulously balanced, artfully presented. Perfect portion sizing and perfect across all courses. We had specials and are so grateful we did. The venison special was amazing- who would have thought goats cheese, pumpkin and bread and butter pudding would go so well with venison? Their 'own garden' grown zucchini flowers were beautiful. I have finally found a white chocolate dessert that isn't too sweet. Chefs- thank you for a wonderful menu, great night- you excelled yourself- cannot rate this restaurant and it's staff highly enough.

Great way to start the new year with the new menu at Stamps. One of their best yet (and that's saying something)- the beef with mole is amazing. The Pork main is beautifully done and well balanced. The beef carpaccio entree is fabulous- never had carpaccio before and wasn't sure what to expect but this was superb. Great service, fabulous staff, wonderful food- just brilliant. See you soon Stamps.

Celebrating our 10th Wedding Anniversary and just loved everything from the time the door was opened until it was time to go. The food is out of this world. The service is first class and we were made to feel very welcome. Now we have to go back and try their breakfast.

Stamps is always consistent- great food, fabulous service, first class quality produce. Individual preferences will always determine if you love the meal but if you don't like it- it won't be because its badly done, inferior quality or horrible flavors. I know NO OTHER restaurant that has managed to provide this level of consistency over years of food- never a miss- always perfect. Great dinner, great staff, amazing food.

consistently beautiful food, beautiful presentation. Never had a bad dash over 3 years of going at least once for each menu and sometimes we go more than once (depends how many things we can't live without trying pop up on the menu). For a great nights food, great friendly service and consistency in all these things- can't go wrong at Stamps.

Sunday lunch for 6 was a triumph earlier today. They know how to charge on the expensive side of reality bit the chef(s) do justice to the food. Try the melt in the mouth Stamps Pie.

Of all the restaurants visited over the last 4 years, Brenton Allan and his staff at Stamps have provided the only one I can safely return to knowing I'll get exactly what I expect. Great service with fantastic seasonal courses that are inventive and inspirational but firmly grounded in taste and texture. Don't forget to ask when the next menu change is. It's worth arranging your social calendar around it to see what new delights Brenton comes up with. Loved the scallops entree and the venison main on the current menu.

Attended again this week- tried things that I wasn't sure if I would like and found them all to be wonderful. Beautifully carmalised scallops, perfectly cooked, the mustard oil was a pleasant jolt which made the dish leap to a new level. Lamb shoulder, very strong and rich but lovely flavours. Duck, 1st time I have ever really had duck and I can't say I love Duck but I did enjoy this meal and the fennel jam was the perfect side. My partner had the chicken with tarragon mousse which was beautiful. Beetroot salad and the ever wonderful crispy potatoes gave us a filling and enjoyable meal. Topped off with sorbets and icecream. Enjoyable meal- that's the great thing about stamps- even when you have things you aren't sure about- or new things- they are always beautiful. Strongly recommend for foodies- the price reflects the quality of food you will get.

Beautiful food, fantastic service and it's consistently wonderful. Each menu through the year has personal loves and likes but never a bad dish, always perfect portion sizes, clever and creative pairings of flavours and textures. Considering what you get- the pricing is reasonable. You definately get what you pay for- if you love great food, wonderful service and ability to talk even when the restaurant is full- this is the place to be.

Seven of us had a Sunday breakfast for my partners birthday and were thoroughly impressed. The staff are attentative (without being overbearing), bright and genuinely friendly. After some well made coffee, ordered our meals and didn't have to wait very long before being served. Our meals arrived within a few minutes of each other which is always a appreciated. Lots of oohs and aahs as we enviously eyed off each others dishes of omlette, smoked salmon, pancakes, waffles (both sweet and savoury) and two of us having "The Lot". The conversation soon became quiet as we all tucked in. The dishes were perfectly cooked with the sour dough, waffles and pancackes all getting a special mention, but, the highlight were the scrambled eggs (the best in town) light, fluffy and buttery. Eggs are always the "make or break" element and these were superb. The portions were also right on the money leaving us very satisfied. We cant wait to try the dinner menu and will definately be regular customers if just for the breakfast alone.

Thanks Stamps for a wonderful evening. Beautiful location, attentive service, and spectacular food. The menu changes seasonally too, so I'll make sure that I'm back regularly throughout the year to try the newest creations!

I went to Stamps for my girlfriend's birthday last night and had an absolutely fantastic evening. The service was delightful, with the staff being friendly and observant without being overbearing and annoying. We ate the sticky beef for entree, then I had the Pork and my girlfriend had the Duck for mains. Both meals were incredible, as well as a great size. The crispy potato sides were delicious just to top it off! Can't recommend this quaint little restaurant any more!

What an oasis in sleepy Mitcham! I never new this place existed until a friend told me . The heirloom beetroot and goats cheese looked like a painting and tasted divine! The pork done 2 ways with blood orange was complex but all the flavours burst in unison! The service was charming and we will defiantly be back! Thanks stamps!

Stamps Overview

Aptly named for its location beside the old post office, the award-winning Stamps Restaurant is quaintly tucked away on a leafy backstreet of Mitcham, Adelaide. But while the gorgeous heritage building with its vine entangled verandah exudes old-fashioned charm, Stamps’ seasonal menu is undeniably contemporary. With dishes that change frequently to emphasise fresh produce and the chef’s passion, spontaneity and talent, the locals are always coming back for more. Select from such options as miso glazed pork belly with Japanese pickled vegetables, cashews and kewpie mayonnaise before delving into mains such as roasted lamb rump with haloumi, hummus, spiced pickled eggplant and dukkah. Be sure to leave for tempting desserts like hazelnut vacherin with mocha cream and condensed milk jelly.

Stamps Menu Sample

Entree: Confit duck leg with purple bliss potato, caramelized onion, orange, frisee, walnuts and apple balsamic. Main Course: Beef fillet and slow roasted brisket with baked parsnip dauphinoise, eschalot relish and a tarragon jus.
