Food is amazing, the cod dish is melt in your mouth drool worthy. The chips are also amazing, and the coffee was on point. The venue was packed but our food was up within 20 minutes of ordering

Had lunch here for my mother's 85th birthday, out on the deck. The food, wine and service was excellent and the setting was perfect for this special occasion.

Riverdeck situated on the banks of the Murray River with beautiful views of the River. My only complaint is that they are trying to getting you to order breakfast too quickly, at least get our coffee first.

Ordered peppermint tea from menu, was given a blend and told it was peppermint. Given that it was coloured pink and didn't smell like peppermint, I found out later it was a blend of chamomile cranberry and peppermint. It stated on the menu that it was peppermint. The fish and chips and salad was more like CHIPS and 2 small pieces of fish and lots of mixed leaves with no dressing. The roast chicken was overlaid with pomegranate seeds and a LOT of black rice and salad. Not happy !

Disappointed with the porterhouse steak. It wasn't not as tender more like biting into leather.
Cheers!

Beautiful setting with lovely food. very busy Sunday lunchtime so service was a little slow, but very friendly and helpful. If you can, sit outside where it is less noisy and you can enjoy the fresh air and view of the Murray River.

I dined with my friend and two children, aged 4 and 9. Both kids enjoyed their grazing plate - I was incredibly impressed with this healthy option! Lovely, professional staff and gorgeous ambiance.

Lovely outdoor scenery, friendly service however meals average and lacked flavour. Quality of meals didn’t match the price tag. I don’t mind paying good money for a nice meal, but the Creole Jambalaya and Pork Belly were nothing to rave over.

I love The River Deck for breakfast but lunch meals were dissapointing. Staff were fantastic and very attentive.
My Fish and Chips meal had a heap of chips, two sausage sized pieces of fish and a few lettuce leaves and occasional piece of pickle/gherkin.
The other 3 diners accompanying me also said similar things...ie. Free range chicken dish was indeed healthy, but lacked taste.
Drinks were up to their usual high standard, just not the food.
I would advise friends to visit this establishment for breakfast, not lunch.

the menu was limited and very over priced, in this instance they are solely trading on their position, not qaulity. there are alot of young and exciting chefs that have a sense of adventure that is expressed through the menu. this is certainly not the case here.

As a vegan who has had an amazing breakfast with you a few weeks ago I was very disappointed that there was only one vegan option on the lunch menu and I have to say it was not very tasty.
With an ever increasing number of people wanting to eat plant based food I feel a cafe of your caliber should make more of an effort.

Nice by the River a bit congested as you are face to face with inside/outside diners. Ask for an outside table if you want a quiet experience.

Menu on open table does not reflect actual in the cafe we were disappointed the choice on this site was not available as that’s why we booked in the first place.

Overall we were still happy with the experience and alternate menu choice.

I absolutely love the River Deck and eat here regularly. The atmosphere is fresh and relaxing, the staff super friendly, and the food delicious.
I always take my interstate visitors here for Sunday breakfast where we sit on the deck and watch the Murray river pass by in beautiful garden surrounds.

Gorgeous venue and the staff were attentive and friendly. Was a little disappointed about the menu, as the menu online had greater variety than the one provided but what we did order was generously portioned and delicious. We’ll definitely be coming here more!
