Modern, stylish, sophisticated
This new spot, which is located on the riverbanks of Adelaide's CBD, is a modern and very stylish Bistro and Bar. Looking over the River Torrens, you will find yourself in a very picturesque atmosphere, both on the large outdoor terrace and the restaurant and lounge area. This place offers excellent value for money, especially around lunch time where you can get a meal served at only $12. Also their tapas menu is fantastic and for what you get, very cheap. Since the Convention Center is very close, the Regattas is even a perfect place for a business lunch or dinner. The Bistro Menu can be ordered as 2 courses or 3 courses menu, where you can choose from several entrées, mains and desserts.

My personal experience:
We visited this place already several times, especially at lunch time for a tapas snack at the bar or for their live entertainment on Friday evening, "Live at Five". Every time we had not been disappointed. We enjoyed the live music on warm summer evenings in a great atmosphere. In winter time the view is still fantastic and the tapas-snacks at the bar were delicious and were a good price. The service was friendly and everything was to our satisfaction.

My favorite meal:
The entire tapas menu (none of them cost more than $7)

Coopers battered monkfish with aoli and lemon

Price/Value: 8
