We happened upon the River Cafe right at lunch time after a stressful episode had just been resolved, and were so relieved to find a quiet, beautiful location with great food and equally great service. The food was delicious.....so delicious that we returned for dinner.

The ambience is just wonderful....we sat in a cornered off area right by the river ( for both meals ) and just RELAXED...because you actually can here. You can take your time and not be bombarded by noise and activity, so a great choice if you're looking for a place to celebrate something special.

One of my favourite places to dine in PV.

We went for our yearly dinner there and as always the meal and service were perfection. As an added bonus there was excellent live music...a fellow on guitar and a flautist. A most excellent evening.

We had very good food and service at the River Cafe. At lunch it was quiet and we were able to sit along the outside of the patio under the trees and overlooking the river. We stayed a while after the food was gone, just to enjoy the setting. The shade trees provide a buffer against the afternoon heat.

We had a fantastic dinner and the service was excellent. We are both vegetarian and they had plenty of options...it was sooooo good! The location is beautiful and on the river (hence the name). We can’t wait to go back!!
