Who Are We?

We’re all about the good stuff here. Good food, really good views and great wine.

We like it simple, local and fresh, and we stand by that in everything we do – from fish and chips in the kiosk, to a three or four-course meal in our restaurant, or just drinks on the deck, taking in our smashing views. Trust us, you’ll never want to leave (we don’t).

We like pretty food and fancy settings, but most of all, we like good food and friendly, reliable service (the kind that makes you want to be pals with us). We welcome the thong (flip flops for those playing over the pond), the bathers under the sarong, the ball-gown, the suit and everything in between.

The Longer

Atop the spectacular Port Willunga (‘Willy’) clifftops, the Star of Greece has been a staple in South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula for over 20 years. Named Star of Greece after a ship which sunk in the waters just out front of the restaurant in 1888, the little seaman’s cottage has undergone a number of makeovers over the years.

Current owners Doug and Nikki Govan have lovingly taken ownership of the beloved little kiosk-turned-restaurant for the past seven years now. Over the years, they’ve restored the little shack, maintaining it’s cosy, historic charm.

These days, our little restaurant on the cliffs serves modern, Mediterranean-influence cuisine in a fine, friendly dining setting. Watch the waves crash outside, sip a local drop and sample some of the best produce the region has to offer, with simple, delicious flavours.

With decades of experience drinking wine, making wine and connecting with winemakers and critics, Doug Govan is passionate about everything wine. He knows a delicious drop, his cellars at sister-restaurant, The Victory Hotel, well known both near and far. Needless to say, the wine list at the smaller space by the sea is just as carefully curated.

We have delicious food on offer and so we don’t allow BYO products including cakes.
