Large menu with something for everyone. All the meals looked to be quite large, very well presented and smelled delicious. Expensive for a cafe but lovely food and service.

The chefs clearly love their jobs at The River Cafe, with very obvious thought given to the taste, texture and presentation of all the dishes. As Melbournians and self-confessed food snobs, we were so excited to stumble across this cafe on a recent trip to...More

Omg! The fish! The fish was spectacular. Recommended by our waiter (assuming owner) it did not disappoint. My wife had the chicken panini and it was very nice too. The chips were good and the service quick and friendly. Recommend highly :)

Enjoy casual dining on the banks of the magnificent Tamar River. The River Cafe, at Beauty Point, specialises in seasonal menus prepared in-house with fresh Tasmanian produce. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner you will be captivated by the lovely views presented by the changing moods of this beautiful estuary: fantastic scenery, prolific bird life and the occasional show by the Tamar's resident seal. Located just 100 metres from Seahorse World and Platypus House, and a few kilometres down river from the Beaconsfield Mine Museum, you will be pleased you made this short diversion where you can dine in comfort in our modern, family friendly restaurant, or bask in the southern sun out on our extensive deck. Both overlooking the waterfront vista: every table has a view! Fully licenced and with an extensive menu, The River Cafe offers you: • Fresh seasonal Tasmanian produce, with all meals prepared to order in house; • A wide range of gluten free and vegetarian options; • An a la carte menu ranging from snacks to main meals that satisfy the hungriest diner; • Gourmet pizzas, all made on a home-made crust with the River's own special pizza sauce; • Delicious desserts: designed to tempt; • A wine list that showcases the wines of the Tamar Valley; • And of course: fantastic coffee!
