Your event might be corporate or private, but our dedicated events staff understand that every client has individual requirements and every enquiry receives their personalised attention. Apart from our stunning location River Cafè and Red Ochre Grill have flexible interiors that can be styled to suit almost any type of event.

River Cafè and the Red Ochre Barrel + Grill seamlessly adapt to private and corporate events. Both restaurants are stylishly designed and appointed and have spectacular views over the River Torrens lake and city skyline. On those perfect days, the windows slide away, opening up both restaurants onto river balconies – truly alfresco dining or just the perfect place for a cocktail. Add to this we are superbly located and only minutes from the city with ample free parking.

River Cafè is located on the ground floor level and Red Ochre Barrel + Grill on the first-floor level on War Memorial Drive North Adelaide. River Cafè has a ‘silverglide’ chair lift which gives easy disabled access to all areas of the restaurant which has tiered seating…so, if you are considering our venues for your wedding and your guests will be a mix of age groups River Cafè will best suit your needs.

Red Ochre Barrel + Grill and River Cafè both enjoy the same wonderful city daylight river views and city night time light views.

Executive chef and owner Ray Mauger and his team take pride in promoting the best of Australian produce and indigenous ingredients.
