Party of 7 including Japanese visitors. Entree of Crocodile, Emu and Kangaroo and all went down very well. Mains were more mainstream and enjoyed by all, well cooked, flavourful and well presented. Nice wine list with a bias towards South Australia products. Nice dining atmosphere with a great view.

Lovely views of the river & city. Service is always good, just the right amount of attention. Recent visit was for my birthday & I wanted a long, leisurely evening, so made this request on arrival & each course was well spaced out, just as I'd wanted. Usually we take overseas visitors there & they've never been disappointed.

We came here for the first time as a pre-birthday treat and were not disappointed. I agree the decor and surroundings are quite 90's but the views are great and the service is good, though a bit formal for me. The meals were very good indeed, we both enjoyed the starter tasting plate which included indigenous ingredients. My main of... More

Red Ochre is on the top of our favourite list of dining in Adelaide and it is there because it never ever disappoints us. My birthday this year was no exception. We shared had the sharing plate entree - everything on it was totally delicious and we then had the mixed grill platter for two - included kangaroo, croc and... More

Tired environment. Needs a good make over. Friendly staff. Food didn't taste as good as it looked. Such a beautiful view and tourist destination that unfortunately didn't represent Adelaide well.

Staff extremely friendly and on the ball. Food sounded really interesting but on arrival seemed to lack flavour. Ordered the lamb dish with kofta for mains. Kofta was extremely dry and lamb lacked flavour. Other dishes we ordered were fine but not great. Dessert was delicious. Lovely setting and ambience.

Although it started off slowly, it didn't really matter as we had until midnight. It was a friends birthday celebration as well as NYE, 16 of us and the restaurant was full. The food was fairly nice considering so many people to feed, there was an Asian girl waiting on us, who by the way was run off her feet... More

The location is fantastic and so is the menu, however the service is below par. Amongst other dishes we ordered a watermelon, pickled quandom, goat cheese etc, etc... guess what? NO quandom, we had to ask for it and got a lame excuse!? The service seemed confused, rushed... We felt rushed to eat and go. The dishes were really nice,... More

Red Ochre Grill restaurant enjoys one of Adelaide’s best city locations. Literally sitting on the water the restaurant has beautiful river views and wonderful night time city views from every seat in the restaurant. The restaurant is a 10 minute walk along the River Torrens from the Adelaide Festival Centre and or 10 minutes cab ride from any city hotel. Additionally there is ample free parking. The Red Ochre Grill is a spacious stylish contemporary room and our approach to service is professional and informed without being stuffy.
