“Excellent coffee, great food, very good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

Went there a few times whilst in town for the Annual Jnr Rep Touch Footy carnival. 4 of 4 coffees were excellent - and I am a hard marker on coffees. Had breakfast there with my son once, food was prompt, as ordered and presented & tasted great. Staff were prompt, courteous and helpful. Better than Fig (in town) which was none of the above. Pretty views, too bad the weather was ordinary it would have been beautiful on a sunny day.

“A hidden treasure that opens up to beautiful river views.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

Wow it didn't looks much at the front but as soon as we went inside the warm bubbly greeting we got from the staff was just the start. The food was delicious as we treated ourselves to the chiefs special. We left relaxed siting in the open yard drinking merlo coffee. It got quiet busy while we dined but we would definatly return n bring friends.oh n we found out that you can even book ahead and get a water table.

“Great food, great view and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

Stunning location on the river at Hastings River Drive. Outdoor seating under cover with a gentle breeze, what more could you want? While the price is a little "up there" the portions are generous and the service faultless.
We both had chicken schnitzel wraps and they were stunning. The coffee is also excellent and the cafe is licensed for this who wish to imbibe.
We have been here several times and it offers consistently good quality food and excellent service.
Highly recommended.

“Waterside Eating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

A visit to Rivermark cafe was a pleasant experience beside the bumpy beginnings. The cafe is on the banks of the Hastings river & it's a large space with a metal stone floor. The carport style covered seating area is basic but a lovely place to sit and watch the river with it's bird life and boats cruising by. It's very busy on a Friday during the school holidays in January. We were told at first that they had no tables and unless we sat inside or came back another time we may be out of luck, so we insisted on waiting in the inside "dining room" till a table became available. Before we could even pour ourselves some water there was a table and several more besides. The very young staff are well mannered but inexperienced. We choose from the varied menu from things like salads, (17) snitzel wraps(16.50), burgers (17) and seafood ( from 23). There is nothing ground breaking or different but the food is well presented and fresh. There is a good choice in wines by the bottle and glass at reasonable prices ( fr 7 a glass). There is very little service as you order from the front counter. The seafood is well cooked and pleasant but frozen. Mango puree features heavily on the menu and may be a summer inspiration, regardless this is a relaxing restaurant with a great outlook.
