    Pasta was gluggy. Barely edible. Steak was ordinary almost nil accompaniment. Dined here before and enjoyed it. Tonight was disappointing in every way.

    Doesn't disappoint me every time I dined at this place. Service and food are always excellent and would come back again and again. I recommend this place to everyone.

    The location and atmosphere was gorgeous looking out over the Torrens and city. Have had a better main meal there before like the steak but ordered the seafood pasta, no real flavour and very stodgy . Would probably go back but order different food

    The staff are excellent, the service is always excellent, a couple of the meals are a bit lacking in substance for price, the wine selection is good, however, still over priced, but in general, one of Adelaide’s gems

    Why have I not been here until now??! Very impressed, food was amazing. Having 'Cafe' in the name belies just how upmarket this restaurant is. White tablecloths, excellent service, excellent food with a great view at normal restaurant prices.

    We have been many times, it is a must see for tourists, the food and service is outstanding, but, on opening the wine list, one almost goes into shock at the price of wines, often double anywhere else, one in particular is three times the price of the last restaurant we visited, so perhaps it is something that would be worth looking into.

About the restaurant

Five star dining at its best

Looking for a five star venue with winning views and a fine dining menu? Then look no further than River Cafe in North Adelaide. This waterfront restaurant has an eclectic European menu featuring the very best from land and sea. Start with a serving of oysters and some arancini balls before advancing to the mains… will you choose the twice cooked duck or the crab linguini? Make sure you save room for dessert as the passion fruit semifreddo and the chocolate budino are hard to go past. If you’re looking for a celebration spot or a special occasion venue the River Cafe can cater.

Best Dish: slow braised beef cheek.
