Modern food and a welcoming environment are the embodiment of what you'll discover in a meal at Riverside Restaurant. Each dish is skilfully prepared with local ingredients and modern presentations. Popular menu items at Riverside Restaurant include the lamb back-strap or the Barossa heritage pork cutlets.

Indulge in the 300gm grass fed scotch filet, or go more healthy with the catch of the day complete with crushed avocado, fennel seed, capsicum salsa and confit kipfler potatoes. The pork is locally sourced, heritage breeds that are free range and milk fed.

Riverside Restaurant also has an extensive wine selection ranging from NV Krug Grande Cuvee Champagne to famed local Barossa Shiraz such as Hentley Farm The Beauty Shiraz.

End the visit with one of the mouth-watering desserts such as the Riverside Dessert Trio or the Native Ice Cream Trilogy and an espresso or cognac if you so desire.

Great high tea food great, but our visit sit was made so special by the service we reviewed, from his badge we deduced his name is Nicholas Miller, he was knowledgeable about the various wines you sell and about the locality of the food we were served, he was attentive to all in the restaurant at the time, and very smart and presentable, he made our mother/daughter high just sooo special. Kindest regards Carrol

Wasn't overly impressed with the main (lamb) as it was fatty, but entree (duck) was beautiful.
Service wasn't as good as expected- we were topping up our wine, and plates weren't cleared as timely as I would have liked.
A few issues with paying using Entertainment card, but it was sorted in the end.
Overall a reasonable meal, but I expected more.

Disappointed with the service when the menu was delivered we were not asked if we would like drinks. when we ordered i asked if we could see the wine list and the waitress said you can have a glass with your meal for the one price. it is a presumption for the waitress to think that we were only going to spend a small amount. it was a business lunch where i took a client out to celebrate our working relationship.
Food was beautiful.

The service, food and setting make this restaurant great. I enjoyed a family Sunday lunch here in a group of nine people and we were shown our table quickly and our orders were taken after we had time to settle in.
The restaurant was busy so the kitchen was under some pressure but the attentive staff did an outstanding job in accommodating us and looking after our needs.
We look forward to returning.

Drink service poor and our desert was completely forgotten about. They asked us how our main meal was and we had not been served yet. It was a rare date night my partner and i got to go out on and we were completely disappointed. The food was nice when it finally came. as for the drinks we constantly had to call over a waiter and of the three Johnnie Walker scotch drinks i ordered only one of them was Johnnie Walker the other two were some other whisky but i couldnt be bothered complaining as just getting a drink was hard enough.

My hubby and I had the pleasure of dining in this restaurant this weekend. We chose it based on location and the fact they offered oysters as my husband is an oyster connoisseur. The food was amazing; fresh and delicious, best oysters he’s ever had. The staff were really friendly and obliging and the cocktails were very well made. We had a lovely night and would love to go back again.

We have for the last few years celebrated our Wedding Anniversary by coming in for a High Tea and this year was our 20th Anniversary year. We felt so looked after and special. Thank you to the staff for an outstanding service, especially our personal waiter, (sorry we can't remember his name), for a relaxing and extremely enjoyable experience again. We will be back. :)

The outstanding aspect worth mentioning was the service we received. Everyone there were friendly and professional, but one waitress in particular named Maggie was spectacular.
Maggies was very friendly and superb in her service. When she learnt we are celebrating my wife's birthday she organized a complimentary dessert at the end of our meal. The dessert was absolutely wonderful.
When we paid our bill using discounts from the Entertainment Book, she told us to keep the discount voucher so we can go back again.

Food - we found the entrees and dessert to be the best of our meal that night. The mains (sirloin steak, and pork belly) was just above average.


Many thanks to Maggie for an enjoyable night at the Riverside Restaurant.

This review is about YOUR service. I booked a table for ONE person. Your confirmation to me was for ONE person. The booking that Riverside had was for a table for TEN people. The Riverside handled it well, but it didn't fill me with confidence for any future bookings.

We had the Kingfish and the Pipi pasta, both were great. We have a 7-month old baby who we needed to bring along and they catered for him perfectly. It was our anniversary and the chef provided a selection of the high tea off the menu as a bit of a treat and really we couldn't have had better service. Really appreciated the food and efforts.

Perfect choice for pre-theatre; the Playhouse is two minutes walk away and the view will be divine once all the construction work is finished. The food was beautifully cooked and presented by a friendly and knowledgeable staff. Wine list quite good, with some decent ones by the glass. Would recommend for a fine dining experience, while it was still catering for hotel guests who were more casual. Also a convenient walk across the bridge to Adelaide oval if the events timing is favourable.
