    Delicious food. Good service and a lovely spot in Adelaide. Love dining here. One issue is the parking can be difficult if there is something else happening along the Torrens.

    The food and service were great, we have been before and will be back! It was a birthday dinner and we were given a great table. Steaks were perfectly cooked and dessert was divine.

    Food was great, enjoyed everything ordered. Staff were really friendly. I'm indecisive so it's nice being able to ask what they'd recommend. Have been several times and always a good experience.

    We felt the dishes lacked luster and taste. Service is good as always. The chocolate crostini was not palatable

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.
