Fabulous city and river views from both the River Torrens Cafè and the Red Ochre Barrel + Grill located on the first floor…… Jeremy Khuu

There are endless opportunities for a party at the River Cafè and dozens of possible style variations; a cocktail party with roving food and drinks selected from our a la carte menu but in miniature, a sit-down chef’s menu with a drinks package or grazing table served by one of our chefs.

Equally the tiered nature of seating in the restaurant makes River Cafè a terrific venue for a theatre type seminar that can be followed with or have an interval of perfectly pitched food and beverage.



We have full audio-visual facilities and stable wifi.

private dining

If you are looking for private dining or meeting space, we have a stylish private dining room that seats a maximum of 35 guests in our sibling restaurant the Red Ochre Barrel + Grill [located on the first floor] please click here for details


With the trend to less formal and more fun options for a wedding River Cafè provides an excellent venue. Top level converts to dance floor and DJ……pre dinners at the bar or on the deck, weather permitting, and the rest just falls into place.

Our dedicated events team are expert in tailoring our packages to your precise requirements….enjoy delicious food, well-chosen wines appropriate to your budget and excellent service.

If you’re feeling flamboyant skip the beverage packages and tailor a cocktail list with a couple of beers, cider and sparkling included in the mix.

We regard every private or business function as a singular requirement. Everything will be organised to the finest detail prior to your arrival.

please call +61 8 8211 8666 or email us to make an appointment to discuss your requirements.

Our sibling restaurant the Red ochre Barrel + Grill located immediately above the River Cafè is also an excellent wedding venue….please click here to see more.
