This is certainly one of Adelaide's finest restaurants. We started the evening quite early and had a drink down stairs in front of the open fireplace while waiting for our guests. No tap beer but a good selection of bottled beers and wines. We were then ushered upstairs to our table a couple back from the window with great views... More

Restaurant located along River Torrens, next to Par 3 golf field. Whatever the season, this restaurant has one of the best view of the river and city. If weather is dry, a stroll around the area before dinner would even make it better. On cold wintry night, there is a nice warm fire inside next to the bar.Car parking on... More

Service was just OK. Virtually no service for about 30 minutes in which we had to get up and find someone to give us cutlery. Dinner was on a Friday night and the food was average. We think the rating of this place is over rated. Overall just average

Beautiful location on the Torrens River looking up towards Adelaide City skyline. Service excellent, food really yummy, beautiful presentation. I would reiterate a tip I read prior to booking this place for lunch, (we were visiting from Sydney for our Christmas break) if dining during the day, especially in summer, ask not to be seated on 'the hot side' of...

Fantastic dinner on a Saturday night. Amazing, delicious food, great service and a good atmosphere. Perfect location if you're heading to Adelaide Oval or The Festival Centre afterwards.

Have dined at Red Ochre many times over the years and have thoroughly enjoyed the food but sadly won't be returning or recommending this restaurant again ... My meal was cold on receiving it and along with the menu changes the food wasn't to the usual standard as we have eaten in the past... so sad that a once enjoyable... More
