River Cafè

Restaurant and Cafe

River Cafè has one of Adelaide’s most superb city locations; a floating pavilion on the water, there are beautiful unrestricted river and city views. River Cafè is one of those rare restaurants that is as atmospheric during daylight hours as it is as night.

On hot days the windows roll away to give a magical dining experience. Equally the restaurant is cosy on cold wintery days that start with a drinks around the bar fireplace.

River Cafè and our sibling the Red Ochre Barrel and Grill (located immediately above) are just a 10-minute walk along the River Torrens from the Adelaide Festival Centre and cab ride from any city hotel. Guests can alight immediately in front of our main entrance and there is disabled access to all dining levels. We also have ample free parking

The River Cafè has a celebrated reputation. ‘Modern Mediterranean’ cuisine with an emphasis on local and seasonal produce. We have an excellent wine list with the best of South Australia and a smattering of wider Australia and the old-world. Many are available by the glass.

During the difficult times of COVID19 we are meticulously adhering to government instructions with social distancing, sanitising and collecting the guest data required by the government to ensure the safety of our guests and staff. We provide our guests an anxiety free dining experience.
