Nestled in the foothills of Adelaide in South Australia lies a venue that over the years has become synonymous with culinary brilliance and secured its place as a destination for industry heavyweights, celebrities and lovers of food from across the world.
Helmed by owner and chef Scott Huggins, Magill Estate Restaurant was always set for big things.
Huggins spent his early career abroad working in Japan with the likes of chef Seiji Yamamoto at the three Michelin-starred restaurant Nihonryori Ryuginin in Tokyo, an experience that still influences his creativity and ideas.
Huggins’ deeply held philosophy of sourcing the best local produce paired with a profound respect for nature and the seasons has assisted in establishing Magill Estate Restaurant as a must-visit destination over the past decade.
Huggins is on a constant journey of learning and has spent his entire career forging relationships with growers and producers to best understand the produce he works with and to convey this understanding to those who choose to dine with him.
Scott Huggins is a name synonymous with fine dining and Magill Estate Restaurant is one of the most awarded restaurants in the country, being named one of the top ten restaurants in South Australia for 2023 by Gourmet Traveller.
Huggins believes that dining should be transportive and ensures that dining with him offers a moment of reprieve from the everyday.
