The restaurant has very good views to the river and the service was very friendly. We had the aussie dish, with kangaroo, crocodile, emu, quail and venison chorizo. The meat was good and well cooked and it was a nice experience to tray all those kinds of Australian specialties. However, it is expensive, 135 aus dollar for two people, with... More

The Red Ochre used to have a good reputation for flavour and using Australian ingredients. Not much if this was evident last night. Most of the shared platter of entrees was pre-prepared, and while this in itself is not a problem, the obvious lack of freshness was. That theme continued onto the mains of Barramundi (first bit of Aussie fare... More

Very good food and service. You can try out some Aussie delicacies (Red Ochre Tasting Platter) if you're brave enough such as crocodile meat or kangaroo (which I didn't have - they're too cute to be eaten). The fish I had was marvellous - Barramundi. The location isn't too convenient if you don't have a car (or for a tourist)... More

Attracted by the Festival of Food offer, a group of us decided to book a mid week dinner. Service was friendly and attentive but a little slow despite the rather quiet, cold and wet night. The food was beautifully presented and the mains - without sides - were just right for small ladies' appetites. Only one of our party was... More

We were a large group of 24 that ate here June 5, 2014 as part of a dinner after a long day of board meetings. Service was very fast and the food very good. Great selection of wines and after dinner drinks, especially the Penfolds Grandfather Fortified Wine - Tawny. It was fantastic with our Chocolate Fondant dessert for an... More

Wonderful views of the city lights on a cold night June 2014. Lovely inviting ambience of cascading waters around the building. Inside was not bad but a bit dated and the furniture overdue for comfort update. Car parking not a problem - but the Adelaide City Council 2 hour limit is ridiculous for diners- dealt with by the reception providing... More

we've been dining here for about 5 years now, and absolutely love it every time we come. Food is consistently good, and service is excellent. Salt and Pepper Crocodile is to die for !
