Description: Red Ochre Grill restaurant enjoys one of Adelaide’s best city locations...
Red Ochre Grill restaurant enjoys one of Adelaide’s best city locations. Literally sitting on the water the restaurant has beautiful river views and wonderful night time city views from every seat in the restaurant. The restaurant is a 10 minute walk along the River Torrens from the Adelaide Festival Centre and or 10 minutes cab ride from any city hotel. Additionally there is ample free parking. The Red Ochre Grill is a spacious stylish contemporary room and our approach to service is professional and informed without being stuffy.

Delicious!

Red Ochre is a beautiful restaurant with an amazing view. We had the steak, the barramundi and the native brulees for dessert which were AMAZING. The only issue was that too much time passed between main and dessert so we ran out of wine and realised how full we were.

We probably go to Red Ochre 2 or 3 times a year. Restaurants can be hit or miss, but last night everything was good. Our table had different dishes each, but each was delicious and a good size serving. They are often involved in featured restaurant deals such as the 'Spring 15' or 'Festival of Food' that offer good value.... More

on a warm summer night the scene was great, we expected the food to match the view and also its considerable price. unfortunately it didnt!! floor staff were generally polite, service was slow and we had to send back the food due to its complete failure to resemble what we asked for. it came back exactly how it was after...

The menu caters for many variety of tastes, and all the courses we had were delicious. Fine dining prices, but totally worth it. We will definitely be back at... More

It's been a while since I last came to the Red Ochre - actually about 20 years. On this night we did the "Festival of Foods". The restaurant has a really nice upstairs setting overlooking the Torrens River & the City. The meal itself was also really nice - started with a tasting plate of entrees and they were all... More

Great restaurant with a range of options to suit most pockets and palates. Enjoyed the Rockford wine at a huge mark up, but it matched the food perfectly. Make sure you dash in and get your parking voucher before you settle in for the meal. This should not be required for a restaurant like this. Great view of the city... More

Joined a group of friend for the Festival of Foods special. Service as always was excellent, not to mention the food. Shared platters of tasty foods for openers and dessert with a choice form the mains. Wine prices are a little high but always of excellent quality.

A formal dinner was held in Red Ochre in SAMUDRA Program, a program on self awareness and enrichment in marine development. The diners is really fancy and the foods are superb!

Visited with my festival of food voucher on friday night & was not disappointed. Great food, service & views to match! This place continues to impress after all these years. Love the lemon myrtle tea to top off a great meal. Will be back!!
