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.

The fisherman’s basket was excellent, but the pie was not uniformly warm/hot throughout. The wine list is excellent, especially the ability to vary the size of drinks. Service was fine as was the organisation in relation to COVID.

Yet again another wonderful meal with great ambience and company.
The only little thing was that in these Covid times, with everyone encouraged to pay by card, on presentation of my debit card a charge was added. I believed that this only applied to credit cards so was very surprised that this was added to my normal eftpos card. This wasn't really clear. A small amount but its why I chose NOT to put it on my credit card. Even my regular coffee take away doesn't do this.

We had the Beef cheek and stout pie served in a ramekin with chips and salad, it was very good. We are very pleased that Riverdeck is open again following the necessary lockdowns.

This is our first visit post lockdown and, if anything, the experience was even better than our last visit to the north-east. The staff were happy, efficient and helpful and the food excellent in that the produce was fresh and quite wonderful really. We both have food sensitivities primarily related to processed food but we had no reactions at all to this natural food.

We took customers from Melbourne. Two people ordered the steak. It was probably a $12 steak that cost us $35 each. It was fatty and not worth the money. We ordered drinks but they didn't come so we had to order again.
