The River Deck Cafe
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.
Our visitors thought Riverdeck was outstanding. We thought it was a good as usual - food, service and location are great.
Lovely place, friendly staff and great tasty food although the fish of the day (fillet) was a small portion, love the heaters on the balcony and basket of blankets for use if you feel the cold.
fantastic food and service which we really enjoyed
Our waitress Brooke was outstanding, she was very attentive and helpful. The food was superb so a thumbs up to the chefs. A great way to spend a Mother's Day dinner. Thank you.
Had friends visiting Albury and booked to have lunch at the River Cafe. Couldn’t fault it!!! Would definitely recommend it and will look for an excuse to visit again asap. A highly recommended dining experience. (Excellent food and coffee)
Delicious food, great options, amazing service, awesome location. We will be back!
A lovely spot on the river. We had requested a deck table when making a reservation, but this seemed to have been missed. It was easily rectified. As usual the food was delicious and the choice varied but not too large. Outside the noise level was great. Inside is a problem for people with hearing issues, and I heard other diners comment on this as well. I am pleased to see this as a consideration when making a review. Though last time we were there, one of the other tables had very loud people with no thought for other diners. Though this can happen anywhere. We enjoyed our lunch, and the break in our journey. We will always make a booking when doing the same trip,
A great little spot for lunch, modern, very friendly staff and great food. Nice parkland beside restaurant overlooking the river.
We returned 5 meals as they had all been overcooked and very dry. 2 of us ordered gnocchi which had been rated highly by one of the guests a couple of weeks ago and replaced them with Hamburgers as one of the guests was half way through hers and it looked delicious which also said it was, the 2 hamburger replacements came out overcooked and dry also buns where burnt so not a great experience.
Upon arrival we were greeted and shown to our table by friendly happy staff ,water was given to us within minutes , our order was taken within a reasonable time and the very delicious breakfast meals were outstanding. The coffees were really enjoyable and ahhh. !!!.Scenery of the Murray River and surrounds were peaceful and we all went for a walk in the area after breakfast. Would recommend The River deck Café ,and look forward to going there again in the future.
Cheers Elizabeth and Peter, Tammie and Hanna.
Nice relaxed vibe with a view of the river food was totally amazing, would definitely recommend.
Service excellent food very very good Excellent amount of food
Fabulous food with wonderful service - great atmosphere
Once again The River Deck Cafe delivered. The food and coffee was great. The venue was chosen for breakfast with friends from Coffs Harbour because of the great location looking over the Murray River and because previous visits have been fantastic. I was please that I wasn't disappointed by my choice.
Pleasing homely ambience.
Extremely courteous and efficient service.
Absolutely delicious meals, coffee and hot chocolate.
A little expensive, but all other positives make up for this.
Would visit the restaurant again.
A very busy Monday morning at this picturesque location meant noise levels were high but the acoustics inside helped minimise this. Luckily we booked in advance however we were made to wait with everyone else in the queue which was unfortunate seeing as one of our party was disabled and cannot stand for very long. Perhaps diverting the bookings from the walk in queue would better serve patrons.
The food and service were both of a high standard. Overall our experience was a good one.
Very satisfied with my experience at Riverdeck Cafe
I’ll highly recommended to friends and relatives
The second visit to the River Deck and neither visit has been pleasant. There is a definite "attitude" problem. Basically, arrogance and who cares there are plenty more customers is the feeling I get.
I would welcome the opportunity to speak to senior management about this but they have a head in the sand attitude.
Even better would be another restaurant/snack bar on the riverbank. Competition might make them pull their heads in.
Junior waitresses? Great, they do their job and do it well. Food? Good - they are trying to be a classy place to eat so frozen chips might not be the go - hand-made chips to go with the Flathead could be a good tip to take on board.
Ambiance? Not friendly. Management policy/style? Atrocious. Enough said.
Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. It would be very helpful if you could contact me directly to discuss your comments. I can be reached via the email address I've sent you privately or on 0260235980. We absolutely don't have a head in the sand attitude! Please contact me. Warm regards, Alex
Lovely spot for Sunday brunch. The service was delighful abd prices reasonable. The only disappointment was the smashed avo was on a very big piece of bread that wasn't toasted. It was soggy with the avo mix and too gooey to eat. The coffee was excellent. We would definately go again and try something else on the menu.
Great food, enjoyable evening. Outlook beautiful and service friendly and prompt.
Thank you so much for beautifully presented tasty food for the gathering of 11 of my family for lunch. The staff were so very friendly and efficient. My husband and I came from Canberra and were absolutely delighted with every aspect of your place. Thank you so much. We will come again. Alison :)
Always our favourite with awesome vege options. The menu is always exciting and changes often.
Just a suggestion or 2:
Lovely place to visit and eat. Please think about music being played- was quite loud and people speaking louder over the top.
Secondly, the food was lovely however what about some simple choices like grilled steak or plain grilled fish?
Our best dining experience in Albury for a long time. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was spot on.
Fabulous view. Fabulous service. Fabulous ambiance. Fabulous food. Did I mention it was fabulous.
I'm bringing a friend to have lunch there next Tuesday! My husband loves going there on the weekends for lunch. The coffee is wonderful and we love the patterns on top!
Stunning views of the River in Albury. Relaxed atmosphere. Modern food choices that were healthy and filling. Perfect place to meet friends or to just escape.
Great food and great service. We have just moved to the area and can’t wait to go back!
Service was spot on, friendly and capable staff. We had barramundi and 400g steak, both cooked to perfection. Also enjoyed the cherry dessert, divine flavours. Plating was beautiful.
Only negative was a fly that bothered us all night - we were indoors, & glare from the sun early in the evening. Both minor and trumped by the quality of food and service. Thank you
The staff is welcoming and friendly. Food is great. A little bit noisy and difficult to have a conversation with the noise level when full house. I would like to suggest the Cafe stop using plastic straws if possible.
Good experience and would recommend to a friend. Food was yummy
We had a great night with family great food, excellent service, all enjoyed the night
Really nice, quiet place for lunch or dinner. Right next to the river very picturesque. Great food and service. Highly recommend it!
Service was slow, food OK, dirty cultery arrived with my coffee
Over-priced and ingredients so pre-prepared, it all felt stale. Way too fussy menu and food combinations didn't work.
We really enjoyed our dining experience at The River Deck Cafe, staff were friendly and efficient and the food was excellent. Great atmosphere will go back again very enjoyable day.
Great service - staff very helpful. Quick delivery of meals. Good coffee
Service was great and the restaurant was a nice temperature on a very hot day. Many thanks to our service provider Sam. Food was very nice. Yes I will recommend to others and I will be back
Our group of five - ranging in age from 7 to 89 - had a most enjoyable lunch at the River Deck Cafe. As it was a 40 degree day, I'm very glad that I specifically requested a table inside! The menu was comprehensive and we found great meals that suited everyone, and each of us were very happy with the food. We found the restaurant to be a little on the noisy side, due to the good number of happy diners inside, but given the wide range of ages within our group, this worked to our advantage. Next time we visit Albury we will factor in another meal there.
Great service, thoroughly enjoyable :) Dog friendly. Wonderful views, such a scenic spot
