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.

We were here in the private room for a dinner function. We had a 3 course meal with wines. The choices were good, the food was delicious & the wines were good. The cost was very reasonable.

You can't beat the freshest of locally grown ingredients prepared simply, marvellously, served Only by putting the dining experience directly on the water and watching lights from the city bounce off the water or teams of oars-people working out while you enjoy wines from an outstanding list. If it sounds too good, your would be wrong. Taken by a client... More

Went to the Red Ochre again with with lovely partner for her birthday. This has become an annual event and hope to return again in 2016. Staff friendly and very professional. Food as usual of the highest quality with a lovely red from the excellent wine list. What can I say but awesome-

A very good evening out. Views very pleasant overlooking the river, service excellent and the menu choices suited all three of us. The best thing about this place - it was quiet and so we could have a conversation without shouting over loud music. I don't recall music at all - thank you! The venue itself needs a little spruce...

We dined here as part of large family gathering celebrating my mother-in -laws birthday. The word "special" aptly sums up the experience of us all. The location, for starters, is breathtaking with its views over the river to the city skyline and across the golf course. The décor inside is understated but elegant. The food is sufficiently "different" to be... More

This restaurant came recommend from a neighbour whom dinned there about 15years ago, well nothing has changed (a long time to maintain such a high standard of cuisine and venue).
