“Great for a nice meal out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

We went here for a family meal with my parnets, siblings and our 2 young kiids aged 4 and 1. The food is delicious and the staff are friendly and very accomodating. We all had a lovely time and a beutiful meal. Only downside would be the space. The restaurant wasn't very busy that night (Thanks be to god) and my boys we're playing on the floor with their toys. But the staff didnt mind at all. All in all I will go back for small functions.

Can stress enough how much we all enjoyed the food. If the funstion room upstairs help more ppl I would book it for my wedding. Fantastic food and beautiful views!!!

“Perfect corner on a sunny summer day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

I was driving down the road on a motorbike with a mate when I spotted the river and it's little wood bridge so I thought why not checking around for a place to get a lunch. And I tell you, what a place!! Disappointment isn't a word for that colourful and charming restaurant.
We both got a main dish and to be honest, the gargantuan man I am could barely finish the plate that was garnished with fresh fish (I reckon about 4 different type..), veggies, chips, salad..! And all for a really decent price! We felt welcomed and the cherry on the cake, as we were seating outside, we had the pleasure to contemplate the river..!

“Wonderful birthday meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

Recently went to the Riverbank for a birthday celebration with a few girlfriends and had a wonderful meal. The food was delicious (best fillet steak I've had in a long time) and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The restaurant was busy on the Saturday night we were in but we never felt like we were waiting. The Riverbank is clean & welcoming with a wide range of choices at reasonable prices. A great place to have a relaxing meal.
