Went for lunch as a treat over the Easter weekend, so much more expensive than other places we had eaten, and the food was only ok. It all looks a bit tired too, probably prettier at night when they have all the twinkly lights on.

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.
