    Nice restaurant with great atmosphere. Service at the start was very slow. When we went to order were told no woodfire pizzas were available which was a shame as they are a big part of the menu. The waitress could have informed us of this as soon as we sat down. Another disappointment was that the menu advertised online was different to the menu on the day so this is not great when picking a restaurant to go to based on meal options seen online beforehand. Vegan food options were very limited, a nice vegan pasta dish would have been great. The meals we were served were very high quality and tasted nice. Overall it was a nice evening.

    As per usual, the service I have received was as good as the one before. Keep up the good work. The food and atmosphere was good too. I really enjoyed the seafood pizza which I was told was new in the menu.

    Stunning view with river view available across the restaurant. We had an excellent table and really enjoyed the atmosphere created by the crisp white tablecoths and the beautiful evening view of the river. There were no staff available to greet us and no permits left in the permit holder on the desk. There were staff around but too busy to speak to us. they were not dealing with patrons at all. Food was beautifully presented but we were disappointed in the blandness and dryness of the haloumi. The past ragu was escellent.

    The whole evening was great the food was good and the staff were fabulous. Nothing was too much trouble. When the food that we had ordered seemed not to be enough for the six of us we asked for an extra serve, it was promptly brought out, no waiting.

    We go to The River Cafe whenever we have something to celebrate. The food is always beautiful, the wine selection lovely, service excellent, and the setting is superb.

    Never had a bad meal or experience at River Cafe. I've been there many times for numerous occasions and each time was memorable and the food spot on.

    The setting beside the weir was very pleasant. Did not feel like you were in a capital city at all. Facilities and friendly staff along with lovely food made for an enjoyable night. If I had to complain about anything it would be the affogato. Very small serve of ice cream not even a full scoop , quite expensive at $12 . But it didn’t spoil the occasion.

    Beautiful view, service was great, the food is excellent and great value with the special offer. The bathroom and the bar looks dated, the restaurant is nice, probably could do with an upgrade. Close, free parking is a bonus. Highly recommended!

    Have frequent this establishment over the years. Have never failed to disappoint in the food quality sector. Service wasn't outstanding, but consistently pleasant. Pricing also reasonable. Thoroughly enjoyed our meals.

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.
