    Food and atmosphere were good. Food took a long time to come due to shortage of staff. Service from staff was good.

    Entree was great but mains was not as good as I’m used to when eating at Red Ochre. Sent the meal back but was bought back the same plate with the server stating the chef said that is how it was meant to be. Steak was over cooked and tough, not enjoyable at all and was left on the plate.

    Nice place with great views of the river. Food was excellent albeit a bit pricey. Service strange as we were asked 3 times at the start if we wanted drinks, but then waited 15 minutes to get the bill at the end.

    We wanted somewhere with a water view, spacious and elegant with great food to celebrate Christmas Eve. We weren't disappointed! The 5 of us had a different dish each and all were very satisfied with the quality, presentation and size of the serve. Highly recommend.

    Beautiful views, dinner during daylight savings and seeing the transition of day to night provided excellent value. Food was lovely and the table was well serviced by the staff.

    We were a little disappointed with the food, particularly my partner's steak, which was $60, but no better than a steak at the local pub. The location is lovely, with a great view, but the balcony was not only not open (the weather was stunning so this was disappointing) but obviously had not been cleaned for a long time, which affected the view. Service was great though.

    Menu sounded delicious but dishes lacked flavour. Some elements that were listed on the menu weren't on the plate. Presentation of meals was nice.

    Beautiful view and delicious food, a little on the expensive side but worth it for a special occasion. Thank you for a lovely enjoyable evening.

    Wonderful views. Exorbitant prices for very ordinary and boring menu. Internet advert not true to their menu. Seems one is paying for the views.

    We celebrated my wife’s birthday at the Red Ochre on a Friday evening in November. The service was friendly and relaxed and the menu, although not extensive, was well balanced and pleasing. We had three courses including a delightful barramundi main. There are optional offerings of kangaroo/wallaby for those who wish to try it. The restaurant has an exceptional first floor setting overlooking the Torrens lake and the city. We had the benefit of a 30% discount through The Fork which added to a most enjoyable experience.

    JUST disappointing. Had great expectations. Staff were nice and checked on how food was. Salt and Pepper Squid was tiny bits of calamari with too much coating for the amount of fish. Beef cheeks were sooo dry that you could hit the outside with a knife and make tapping sounds. Chicken was OK if also a little dry. Table next to us sent same meals back. Didnt stay for dessert .

    Sorry to hear that you had bad experience, we did offer you other items from menu, but you did not want anything, we didn't received any comment regarding beef cheek apart from your table however you were not charged for it, thank you for the feedback hope to see you soon and let us make it right.

    We were warmly greeted and shown our table which had a lovely view of the river and city beyond. We mentioned we where attending a theatre performance and appreciated that both the courses we ordered came out in good time. Service was attentive and efficient. The food was well presented and enjoyable. All servings were of a good size.

    The food was delicious and served at a good pace. Wait staff were friendly and attentive. We did the ‘Feed me’ experience and felt it was well worth the money.

About the restaurant

Red Ochre is a firm favorite amongst South Australian locals and visitors alike, after a successful move several years back to its current, permanent home on the banks of the River Torrens which accentuates the views of the beautiful Festival Centre, major hotels and Adelaide skyline. The cuisine at Red Ochre has always been top-notch, and service is of the highest quality. The décor is light, airy and hushed, allowing that perfect first date or special occasion to flourish. Try the signature dishes such as the salt and pepper crocodile, or perhaps some miso and sesame-crusted yellow fin tuna. Just don't forget to save room for the Red Ochre liquid Toblerone - it's sensational - or if you're trying to impress an overseas guest, suggest they try the wattleseed pavlova.
