    Some great flavours in the dishes we tried. Good service and a nice warm friendly atmosphere. Would certainly recommend for a special occasion

    Delicious food. Considerate service. Great atmosphere and gorgeous river views. A quiet escape for a city lunch with free parking. A favourite gem that never disappoints.

    5 of us ate here on the Fork 30% off food. Food was quite nice - we shared 5 different entrees then ordered our own main. Service staff were friendly and helpful however not enough staff on and so we waited a long time to place our order and then receive our meal. Glad it wasn’t fully booked as it may have taken longer.

    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.

    Service was quite hit and miss. I felt like we had booked with the deal so therefore mostly ignored. It was very noisy...lots of staff passing by without eye contact. Food wasn't as exciting as previously. Not sure we'll be back?

    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

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.
