Located just a 15-minute drive from Adelaide CBD, Mt Lofty Summit Restaurant and Cafe is a beautiful hilltop wedding venue with breathtaking views over the Cleland Conservation Park. The bold white obelisk is a recognisable feature of this picturesque outdoor wedding venue, surrounded by an extensive plaza, and a restaurant with floor to ceiling windows to take in the view from all angles.

Situated atop Mt Lofty and gateway to the beautiful Adelaide Hills, the Mt Lofty Summit restaurant is a stunning venue for wedding receptions and the plaza is a perfect setting for wedding ceremonies.

At 710 metres above sea level and only 15 mins from the city centre of Adelaide, the restaurant offers spectacular and panoramic views over Adelaide to the sea.

The modern building has floor to ceiling walls of glass to allow guests to enjoy the full impact of the city and coastal views by day, the sensational sunsets and the city lights and stars at night.

The restaurant caters for up to 100 guests on round tables and up to 90 on rectangular tables or up to 250 for cocktail functions.

Our chefs serve modern Australian food with an emphasis on quality local regional produce. A wide selection of canapes are available and are served on the plaza overlooking the city.

The Mt Lofty Summit restaurant sits at the highest point overlooking Adelaide to the sea - it's a breathtaking setting!

Summit was a fantastic choice for our wedding reception. Kelly and Nicola were always easy to contact during the planning stages. Nothing was too much hassle for them. On the night, the room was gorgeous, settings were perfect and of course the view was incredible. The service was impeccable, the food was even better than we had hoped for. A number of friends complemented us on the wine list. I can’t thank summit enough for everything they did. We made some very special memories there, and I suspect we will be back for our anniversary...

Amazing venue with and incredible view. Tony and his staff were great to work with and really supportive throughout the planning process. The night went off without a hitch and the food was AMAZING!!

Perfect location. The restaurant manager was very nice and helpful. He took a good care of us. However, we were the last couple who had a wedding ceremony in their restarant because the owner sold the restaruant to another buyer.

Tess and team were amazing to work with. Our lead up experience was seamless and we had a spectacular day. Venue, food, drink and service were exceptional!

A huge thank you to Nicola and her team at Summit, Mount Coot-tha, for an absolutely first-class wedding. Nicola replied to emails - and followed through - with emails so promptly. From the ceremony to the reception, the entire experience was first class.

It was fine! The view was amazing and the atmosphere was very nice. The layout was good and the service was fine. The choices of food were restricted, but the food was nice.

A beautiful venue with plenty of options for tailoring an event to suit you. Tess was our coordinator and was absolutely wonderful - helpful and confident, she put us at ease throughout the whole process, and was able to handle last-minute changes with ease. The night ran perfectly smoothly.

Lauren at Loft was so amazing with the finer details of my wedding reception. She was calm and cool on the day and had organised everything to perfection. A beautiful venue with such a great atmosphere.
