    Everything was great, just a few little peculiarities with service and food. For example, we were sharing everything and asked for the steaks to be sliced (surely a common request when sharing) and the chef just cut them in half and put them on opposite plates. That isn't slicing. Much easier to slice them with a chef's knife in the kitchen on a chopping board than on the plate in the middle of the table.

    We booked this for my Step Daughters 13th as a special treat and were extremely happy with our choice of venue. Such a serene setting on the River, fantastic service and amazingly tasty food! So much so I’ve looked up a recipe for my dish online to try it at home! I highly recommend The River Cafe. Hubby and I will be back for a date night without the kids during the fringe.

    A fantastic deal. A 9pm booking was a lot later than we would normally go for dinner but we thought The Fork deal was good enough to be flexible. The restaurant has a lovely ambience on the Torrens River. We shared some olives, had a zucchini flower each, my partner had the seafood risotto and I had Coorong Mullet Saltilbocca, then we shared a passionfruit semifreddo. Oh and shared a $48 bottle of red. We loved it all and the bill came to $108. Such great value. My only comment would be that the 9pm booking made everything feel quite rushed - we were done and dusted by 10.15 but that was a small price to pay!

    Beautiful view, we are under 30 and this restaurant was crawling with over 50’s on a Saturday night so we felt a little out of place. Service was slow but food more than made up for it! Halloumi, Arancini and the fish are a must. Host was fabulous but definitely had to do her work and more to keep up

    The service we received was good and food quality was excellent. I really enjoyed the Arancini and the Grancio Pasta. Waiting time was just the right length.

    Food was great We asked 3 times for the freezing cold air conditioner to be turned down with no help so made our time along with a lot of other people who were cold very uncomfortable .

    One of the best meals I have had in a while! I had the Garfish. Arancini balls were great too. View was wonderful, and so were the staff. We will definitely be back :-)

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.

If you’re looking for a celebration spot or a special occasion venue the River Cafe can cater.

Best Dish: slow braised beef cheek.
