Tangkaira was the wife of Ityamaiitpina (aka ‘King Rodney’) a respected Kaurna Elder, and one of three with whom the colonists regularly negotiated. In 2003 Hurtle Square was renamed Hurtle Square/Tangkaira to honour this Kaurna woman.

Rich in heritage, Tangkaira is a Café Restaurant located on the stunning picturesque Hurtle Square. It’s the ultimate escape – the perfect spot to enjoy honest food, sensational coffee, and an unfussy unique wine list; in a chilled-out setting without pretence.

P.S. Why ‘Tangkaira’ restaurant? Well, it’s ‘Where Native Meets New’, reflecting a fresh take on old roots, our strong evolving eco attitudes, and our love for the square. Our vision is to unify our native ingredients with new cultures.

We look forward to seeing you soon, and in the meantime, tell us what you think and if you’ve got any questions, just ask….
