Hello there, I'm living in Adelaide and have a passion for food and love travelling. Trace my foot steps to see what I'm up to.
Published January 8th 2013
Situated right along the Torrens River, Jolleys Boathouse Restaurant has much to offer – apart from its absolutely stunning river view and great ambience, its food is a must-not missed. Upon entering, we were served by the manager and given a table facing the river. As we were there early for an evening meal, the service was quick. We were served with warm bread and butter as soon as we placed our orders. Our selected entrée was seared scallop. Another favourite of the restaurant seems to be the caramelised pork belly, which we hope to try the next time. For our mains, I had the grilled snapper fillet with chorizos, surf clams and salsa verde, which lack a bit of the wow factor, although the presentation itself was great while my companion had the char-grilled Angus scotch fillet with a delicious chimmi-churri sauce, which was cooked to perfection. The only downside was perhaps the slow service, as we waited for a fair amount of time between our courses when diners start to fill the restaurant. We ended our meal with a shared dessert platter - Jolleys Ménage à Trois, which comprises of a wonderful vanilla bean crème brulee, lemon curd parfait and a slightly overcooked chocolate cupcake (disappointed face). Overall, our experience was great. Remember to make a booking as the restaurant tends to be fully booked especially on Friday and Saturday.

in my opinion jolley's boathouse is the best restaurant in adelaide. and about jolley's menage a trois. it's not a chocolate cupcake. it's a chocolate fondant. a self saucing pudding. you cut it open and the still gooey inside oozes out. it's delicious. i'm sorry yours was overcooked.
