Description: We are situated in the township of Warburton in the Upper Yarra Valley and enjoy a unique position on the edge of the Yarra river. Our facilities include a rear balcony and deck where you will see the foothills of Mt Donna Buang and listen to the river meandering through the valley.Our menu is changed seasonally and where possible local produce is sourced to bring you the very best the Yarra Valley can provide. The food is wholesome and fresh and servings are generous

“Clearly the best in comparison”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Being a resident since '09 and seeing many changes in warburton on the food seen Riverview is always consistent in serving quality freshly prepared meals, the cafe/ eatery is always clean and well presented.The kitchen is exposed for all to see and is at a standard you won't see in other cafes in the town. They always give locals employment and have taught many young adults how to serve clientele in a pleasant and efficient way. I see comments on waiting for meals, it is not a fast food with everything cooked to go and you can taste that in their food. It is licensed and has a good selection of local wines, beers and ciders. Pricing is comparable for what you get and the atmosphere inside and out is pleasant with a great outlook. Kids meals are also available. Well done Riverview it's nice to have somewhere to enjoy a meal and feel safe to recommend to friends.

“Full of heart and soul”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

I found the atmosphere transparent to the pride and passion the staff put into their cuisine and service. The food was superb, healthy home made cooking with a touch of class. Location certainly show's some of Warburton's best qualities. Welcomed as a friend at the door was a first impression one doesn't forget.
Will definitely take the time to visit again.

“Great views but....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

This cafe has the most amazing view over the river, especially of it's warm enough to sit on the rear balcony.

But... The service was particularly slow and very expensive for what was delivered

“Nice but over priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

This cafe is lovely. Great out door area. Great views. Good service. Friendly staff. Been here a lot of times,however only down fall is that it is over priced.... If you don't want a produce on your order but would like a replacement they charge you for it... There extras are expensive.... Also breakfast menus ,if you order mushrooms on the side it costs $3 but you only get one,maybe two small ones. I think this is wrong and have questioned it... After this being there general practice they lost us as customers and my family that live in Warburton. Plenty of other amazing competition in warburton that have great venues aswell.

Nice warm and cozy and intimate place to have a coffee or lunch and or dinner. Very friendly staff - maybe a coat rack wouldn't go astray here
