    The food was good. I had the pork fillet meal which was delicious. It is a really nice venue over looking the river and at night quite romantic. Service was good,

    We totally agree and apologies once again. We replaced the dessert once our mistake was pointed out and your mother mentioned that it was delicious

    Expensive place but with the 30% discount is manageable. Food is v.good and the service excellent. The only negative is a corkage price $ 30 a bottle ???? Rip off !!!!!

    Great venue, beautiful views across the river. Duck leg was very tasty. Dessert pudding was dry and unappealing (microwaving just doesn’t do it).

    I love the ambience here, good music , great service and delicious food. The twinkling lights of the city and the river are a great view. It's become our Special occasion place.

    I really enjoyed The River Cafe. Parking is easy and it is in a lovely spot by the river. The food and service were excellent. I would certainly eat there again.

    Food was all nice and the service was good too. My Husband and I both got the gnocchi. The mains were a tad small and more like an entree size.. That’s my only complaint.

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.
