A great strip of shops with great restaurants and retail stores where you can spend a few hours. There are also cinemas and all within walking distance to parks, hotels and other sites such as the museum and art gallery.

Whenever I have been to Rundle Mall not only are the shops really good but there is always something happening there. Last time the Police pipe band were performing. This time the whole of the mall is dressed up for Christmas.

This area which used to be a top restaurant, cafe area has gone backwards in the past 25 years. Apart from Sosta Argentinian Kitchen and Felici Espresso Bar as a daytime cafe it's nothing special now.

This is the better part and higher quality end of Rundle Street and far better than the Rundle Mall which is a fairly standard collection of shops involving the usual suspects.Well worth a stroll .

I found Rundle Street East area the best so far for (window) shopping and dining. A lot of typical chain stores but also some much more interesting ones. Excellent selection of different types and styles of restaurants.

It was a street full of shops from high end to retail outlets, eateries and fast foods, cafes and what-have-you. It is pulsating and full of enthusiasm. Singers, guitarists, even the lone ordinary person throwing bread crumbs to pigeons on the street became an instantaneous...More
