For reference we booked through a 50% food discount. Lovely food, female wait staff were allprofessional and welcoming, really lovely. Food was great, ordered the arancini, zucchini flowers, marinara and fish of the day. The zucchini was stuffed with a beautiful mixture, though the white sauce on the base of the plate was bland and lacking in flavour or garlic. The arancini were enjoyed by hubby, as was the marinara. Super fresh seafood, cooked well and so much flavour. I rarely order pasta in a restaurant but was really impressed by this one. My fish of the day was served with a beautiful salad of parsley, zucchini and rocket and was amazing, as was the perfectly cooked grilled salmon and the fennel sauce, served with it. Good wine selection by the glass, let down by drinks tho. Ordered a vodka lime and bitters and ended up with a drink with no bitters. All in all, a nice setting for a lovely meal. Good variety of vegetarian and pescatarian options too. See less

It is very easy to give this restaurant a 5 star review. We asked for a quiet table and they happily obliged. The food was excellent, some innovative ideas which enhanced the experience. The food was very well presented, made the visual experience a pleasure. The quality was excellent in fact pefect, the quantities generous. A truly nice pleasant experience. Everyone on the table was impressed. The waiting staff were attentive, professional and very pleasant. They made the night. It was nice to meet the manager who was always making sure people were enjoying themselves and being attended to. Thank you for an excellent night. See less

It’s a shame when reviews make similar comments, and no changes are made by the venue. We enjoyed our meal, and the waitresses were wonderful. Unfortunately, a rude male staff member put a dampener on our evening when he walked over to our table and straight away accused us of ‘cancelling’ our entree order. There was prior miscommunication around the menu between ourselves and the waitress when we ordered, and we were happy to accept that this happened and continue with eating a meal we didn’t actually order. However the male staff member was rude, accusational and didn’t allow us the opportunity to explain what had actually happened, nor did he apologise for the miscommunication. This is no way to treat anyone. It’s disappointing, and we won’t be back. See less

Food was okay, and the view was lovely, but something was missing? Venue felt a bit sterile, or boring or something. See less

The food I ordered was very good, points to the chef as we arrived slightly later than our reservation time. The waitresses were kind and polite, directed us and assisted us with our order. However this bald guy at the entrance and checkout was extremely rude to us, talking behind our backs, he was also very rude to his staff as we were checking out he told them to shut up in front of us. Not a way anyone should be treated. Shame that such great view and food is not fully enjoyed because of one person actions and rude personality. See less

Limited menu but superb position built out over the river. The food is excellent quality and beautifully presented although the plates were not heated on the evening we dined there. Service is satisfactory but not particularly outstanding. Definitely worth a visit with free and easy parking on-site. See less

I had lunch there, so can not review the wine list. The meals were very good. The view from the restaurant over the Lake is also superb. The service was good without being hurried or obtrusive. The menu was not extensive, but this was lunch after all. See less

The food is amazing and well worth a visit. Great views as well and good parking. They did struggle with our order though, I tried to order a raspberry drink and they didn't know what it was. Didn't understand no sauce on the main and by desert we had decided not to ask questions about the ingredients in the meal as the waitress didn't know the menu with the other courses. Mixed grill is fantastic although the sausage is spicy. I recommend this with tapas for entrees. See less

It was lovely. The chef could cater for vegan and lowfodmap but very, very limited as it's an Italian restaurant. Very expensive but service is outstanding. And of course the view :) See less

Saturday night at the River Cafe. Very exciting. But this time it really seemed to be lacking something. Music? Not sure. But it wasn't the same. The service was extremely poor. You usually get, highly skilled waiting staff. I guess they were at home having a long weekend rest. So it's a 2/10 for service. You are usually made to feel special, not to be . Ok..... so onto the food. Excellent food thankfully. At least the chef was awake. The tapas idea I wasn't sure on, but it was very nice and well priced at $12 per person. Main course excellent. Dessert not many options and really to be honest., not fantastic. Would I go again??. Maybe not in a hurry. They really need to pick up their game. Otherwise it's another fabulous restaurant finished. Also where are the table clothes???. Not on every table and should be. Poor presentation!! Management needs to do some work. I guess that's it.

A very beautiful and lovely location by the Torrens river. The atmosphere was very nice and the staff were the best. Very warm reception and professional and engaging behaviour. The one-page menu has variety of choices and nicely done. We ordered arancini for the appetiser which tasted good, crispy and fresh but definitely needed more seasoning and sauce to taste better. The main dishes were filet steak cooked medium rare and the sous vide pork filet. The main dishes were very nicely cooked and balanced specially the elements as the sides. They were perfectly in harmony with the protein and complimenting the dish. The salad was ok and refreshing as well. Surely a must visit place. See less
