Wine by the river

Cool bar in the arches along the riverside, popped in for a glass of wine met with excellent service, knowledgeable staff. Wine was good especially as given it was their choice and not the most expensive.

My son and I love Riverland. It is a must on the way to the MCG for a game of AFL. A couple of beers here whilst overlooking the river is relaxing. Watching the rowers, boats and the people streaming to see the game is theraputic and I would recommend it. It is located near Federation Square, however it is... More

Breakfast was al fresco, sitting in the sunshine, watching the Yarra flow past, rowers row by and joggers out for an organised fun run - not a bad start to a Sunday morning. Riverland now opens at 8:00 a.m., so with my muesli, fruit toast and chai tucked under my belt, I can fit a bit more into my day.... More

We love lunch at Riverland on a sunny day. The view of the Yarra River along with great food and service, along with people watching, cannot be beat. On our latest visit we had the Mac Forbes Yarra Valley Rose' ($45/bottle), perfect for a warm day. The ham hock croquettes (3 for $12.50) were flavourful, cheesy, and delicious. The duck... More

We went for a family lunch. There was something for everyone on the menu. Great outdoor dining hidden behind Federation Square. The prices varied with some cheaper items such as paninis or crispy fried chicken. The wine was a bit on the expensive side but it was nice

Riverland is our favorite waterhole when visiting Melbourne. Excellent setting in a world class location. Great outdoor setting with gas heaters around the tables. Table service is available, and the service is great. No need to call the waitstaff - they keep an eye on the tables. The tucker is good - though a bit on the expensive side. All... More

Ate here with friends last Sunday whilst on our way along the river to the MCG. Smart design, great view, incredibly friendly staff, plenty of beers, ciders and wines to choose from at reasonable prices. Had a beef brisket on Brioche burger, my colleagues had steak and pizza. All dishes were first class. We were so impressed we went back... More

Had lunch here today for the first time before heading to the football. Convenient to Federation Square and parking and a quick walk to the MCG....great vibrant spot ! Service excellent and food great. We settled for the BBQ Calamari and chips with Aoli washed down by a Morgans Merlot....relaxed spot right on the Yarra river.

Met friends here for drinks on Thursday evening, not too many people around. Was met straight away and seated by friendly wait staff. Cold night, they lots of heaters! Drinks served promptly. There is a waiter with a FRO!!! :P Drinks a tad pricey but worth the service and views.
