Fino is a prominent restaurant in South Australia known for its earthy provincial food made with market-fresh produce from local farmers. Situated in an 1850s cottage in the heart of the Fleurieu Peninsula, Fino dishes up an honest menu with plates designed to share. The menu is an evolutionary entity that depends entirely on what is fresh that day.
Fino loves real food that tastes like real food; fresh, exciting, and expressing flavour first rather than fashion and design.
The succinct wine list has been carefully chosen to compliment the local produce and delicate flavours, appealing to the wine enthusiast and to the person who would like to try something different. Our wine list was voted "2008, 2009 & 2010 Australia's Best Small List" in the Australian Wine List of the Year Awards (Gourmet Traveller Wine and Fine Wine Partners).
Fino is owned by partners David Swain (chef) and Sharon Romeo (front of house). They met within the hospitality industry 2000 and were deeply compatible with their epicurean ethics. They are proud of what they serve, and they serve it with personality and humanity. They opened Fino 2006.
