Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very busy on weekends however not quite as busy on the weekday we were there for lunch. Generous serves, great coffee, good variety for lunch & beautiful cakes & slices. All very reasonably priced with a view of the river from wherever you choose to...sit.More

I would advise people to steer clear of this cafe. It was dirty inside and outside the place looked very neglected. The staff was not very happy and I don’t think wanted to be there. The food was greasy and the chips not cooked. Our...friends had prawns and rice, it was swimming in the sauce. We did not stay very long we were very disappointed.More

Our first visit to Berri in many years. Looking for a nice spot to grab late lunch on way home from Mildura to Adelaide. Found this lovely spot by chance thanks to Google and TripAdvisor. Only ordered chips and a sweet treat but both were...enjoyable as was the view. Relaxing calm and quiet spot. Very friendly staff.More

Hot breakfast on a sunny morning right beside the mighty Murray. What could be better? Well the service could. Ours was appalling; a sullen waitress who was perhaps having a bad start to the day, so we trust this may not be the norm? Perhaps...she was affronted by us asking for a freshly squeezed orange juice. Surely not an unreasonable request in Berri - heart of Riverland citrus growing. Not only do River Jacks not offer freshly squeezed OJ, but it seemed pretty unavailable anywhere in Berri. Also the omlette we ordered was more like scrambled eggs served in a scarily hot pan, and the very average egg and bacon roll was also scorching. Coffees though were luke warm at best. Pity that the great architecture of the cafe and its superb location were badly let down by the service and food.More

I went here with my mother after returning from a tour through Vietnam. I ordered the "Vietnamese Summer Salad" with duck, and a "Fruity Tooty". The drink was quite nice, without being outstanding. There was very little about the salad that I would call Vietnamese,...aside from some of the ingredients. The duck looked and tasted exactly like lamb or mutton for some reason. It's a pity they didn't let me know, 'cos I would have quite happily gone with the other option of prawns ... unless they were also going to look and taste like lamb. Average at best, and I reckon I could have prepared the same dish with a pre-packed salad and some dressing from Woolies. The only reason I gave it a 3 instead of a 2, was because Mum quite liked the taste of her "Chicken Ceasar Salad", despite it being 70% cabbage, and absolutely loved her "Gourmet Iced Chocolate ". It was incredibly noisy inside, and conversation was extremely difficult.More

So calming sitting on the outside deck. An outstanding place to relax and take in the ambiance of the Murray. If we could have ordered yabbies done with a Greek slant it would have been perfect. Maybe next time.

Coffee was ok, nothing special but the service was great and the place on the river was outstanding. A stronger brew would have made it exceptional.

While away in Berri I heard about a little gem on the Murray called the River Jack's Cafe. Up early on my first day I went for breakfast and wow what an experience!!! The staff were warm, friendly, funny and had great banter. The breakfast...I was served was beyond perfect (Eggs Benedict), a merit to the kitchen staff who are obviously very skilled in there culinary abilities... it must be said it was flawless. And the elixir for the early starter, The coffee, oh the coffee!... As I sat down to read the paper, the aromas from the barrister brought me awake and moments later the smiling waitress brought over my Cappuccino which was delicious and had a velvety texture, you could almost say it was decadent. I would say this picturesque cafe has a five star rating, I enjoyed it that much I visited every morning and was consistently impressed... but hey don't take my word for it, Next time your in Berri swing past, say hi and meet the team..... I promise you it makes for a memorable dining experience.More

I visited upon recommendation from a family member. A gorgeous spot, right on the bank of our Murray River. The decor was quirky and interesting to sit, enjoy my coffee and admire the lovely view outside. Coffee and service were both excellent!

What a fantastic location, right on a straight stretch of the Murray, in the middle of Berri, under ancient gums with a clear blue sky. What a shame then that this place is just so grubby. All of the window & door glass is filthy....Not just needs a clean, but hasn’t be cleaned for a very, very long time. Counter fronts need cleaning, perhaps even try turning the lights on! And please open the doors for a w hand get some fresh air into the place. Seriously, this is a gem of a location with the wrong operator.More
