The River Deck Café is a unique regional destination worth traveling for, offering an unforgettable culinary experience with exceptional food, service, atmosphere and charming outlook.

Nestled in the much loved Noreuil Park alongside the picturesque Murray River and iconic plane trees, the River Deck Café offers a truly unique experience with distinctive dining amongst a buzz of surrounding activity (such as bike riding, canoeing, paddle boarding, and kids playing in the park).

Enjoy the warmth of the cosy fireplace in winter or savour the fresh country air in the warmer months on the open deck – The River Deck Café offers a vibrant atmosphere no matter what time of the year or the weather conditions.

Sip, sample and savour the River Deck Café’s sophisticated and mouth watering dishes created from locally grown produce by our incredibly talented team, Mauritian head chef Ludo Baulacky and Belgian born restauranteur Alex Smit.

Opentable showed a menu that was very different from the one we got on arrival. The food was either too spicy, chewy or over deep fried. It was like dining at a bad country pub. New chef needs to be employed and the old menu back - illustrated on this website.

The River Deck has the best location in Albury. The experience there is excellent, as are the food and service. My choice of the jambalaya was ill advised as it was a bit spicy for my taste. My bad. If you visit Albury and miss the River Deck, you have made a grave mistake. Go for a walk along the Murray and a great meal...and thank you Albury Council for turning the caravan park into a beautiful community resource.

My order of smashed avocado was well presented, however the avocado was very cold, it obviously had been removed from the refrigerator immediately prior to service. My request for a poached egg to accompany the dish resulted in the egg arriving on my plate stone cold, which was not terribly palatable. How hard is it to poach an egg and serve it hot? So unfortunately this dining experience left a little to be desired.

Our group of four enjoyed a lovely lunch on the deck, warmed by the winter sun & excellent service. Staff went over & above to make our lunch a great experience. Food was especially tasty, highly recommend the fritters & chocolate pudding. Thank you :)

Chaotic environment. 8-10 people were squeezed onto a table for 4 including loud children. Waiters were not mindful of leaning over guests. Disappointed and reluctant to visit again.

We had a wonderful brunch at this cafe. The ambiance, service and delicious food exceeded expectations and I would highly recommend a visit. Set on the river in a tranquil environment, the cafe still had a 'buzzy' vibe to it.
The portions were extremely generous and we left with full tummies after a most pleasant experience.
