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.

This past weekend, my partner and I decided to celebrate our 3 year anniversary at Red Ochre. Spectacular food and service. My partner’s main came out undercooked (mine was perfect) and the staff bended over backwards to rectify that mistake (free nightcaps, etc) – which was absolutely lovely. The dessert was the stand out; make sure you order the parfait!... More

I dined at Red Ochre as part of a group dining in the upper level dining room. It was fabulous. There were over 70 of us and the service was personal, knowledgable and efficient. Staff knew the menu well and were able to answer the numerous questions they were asked. Beverage service was timely and sensible, but certainly not stingey.... More

Kangaroo, that is. My colleague said to try the kangaroo filet and I wasn't disappointed. Lean, tender, very red meat, served with seasonal greens and a serviceable Shiraz. Like everywhere else in Adelaide the staff was very friendly and helpful.

We ate here early on a cool autumn night and were delighted both with the quality and presentation of the food and with the efficient but unfussy service. My barramundi was perfectly cooked and presented and the other half's lamb was succulent and delicious. We will certainly return.
