Description: 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.

“Red Ochre Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

One of my favourite restaurants. It is situated on the River Torrens, looking down the river. At night the river is light. Book a table by the window. The Chefs utilise some of the indigenous plants of Australia as ingredients. A must for Adelaide

“Dinner with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Excellent service, excellent menu ( a seafood plate worth returning there) and an extensive wine list, all with a view over the river. Not exactly cheap, or even mid price, but we left with no complaints. A very enjoyable experience

A restaurant with a superb location which delivered both on service and food. We couldn't fault the meal and would recommend a visit.

“Nothing Outstanding - should be with such a great view”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Not a lot of positives from the visit. The food is overpriced for what you get. Service attention was good, but delivery poor. We received another tables meal and when I said I don't believe it was my dish, the waitress was firm that this was what I ordered and left. After a few minutes, she came back, picked up the meals, brief attempt at an apology, and then gave the meals to another table. Quality of food was OK but nothing special.

Overall, not worth the price tag.
