Would you like a view with that?
Riverscape Cafe and Restaurant.
At Riverscape Café and Restaurant you can dine on the banks of the Murray River only 45 minutes from the Adelaide CBD! The huge deck has sweeping views of the river and the iconic twin bridges. Their magnificent open deck is protected and heated throughout winter by a log fire. In the warmer months, the café blinds fly open so everyone can enjoy the river, fresh air, and wide-open space of Sturt Reserve.

Come and relax and enjoy the warm and friendly atmosphere that owner Lauren Nelson and her dedicated team have created, by car, or by boat! Riverscape sees a lot of diners come ashore from the houseboats tied up along the bank.
Inside, Riverscape Cafe and Restaurant is roomy and welcoming.

The menu is packed with contemporary favourites like grilled chicken breast, filet mignon, and crumbed King George whiting. They have vegetarian options and the beetroot and feta salad is amazing! Their value for money $18.90 specials menu features classics like salt and pepper squid, beef schnitzels, and Moroccan chicken. The latest addition to their extensive menu is Stonegrill dining. Your choice of meat, chicken or seafood is delivered to your table with a volcanic rock heated to 400 degrees so you can cook your food the way you like. Riverscape began offering Stonegrill dining about twelve months ago and owner Lauren Nelson says "It's been the perfect addition in our deck style environment". She adds "our steaks are the best outside the CBD". A selection of cakes and ice cream will satisfy your sweet tooth.
The drinks list at Riverscape Café and Restaurant includes all the café selections you'd expect and a great selection of regional wines, particularly from nearby Langhorne Creek. The team can even whip up a whole bunch of party starting cocktails if that suits your mood. The restaurant has a capacity of 250 people and is well placed for large functions.
Sturt Reserve is a popular riverside park in Murray Bridge. It features covered playgrounds, a skate park, and the iconic Bunyip. Feed him a dollar and the bellowing plastic beast rises from his watery den. (Sometimes he can scare the children so prepare them for it). Houseboats can tie up on the banks for the night for free. Make some time to have a meal and a drink at Riverscape while you're there!
