Red Ochre Grill is housed in a smart double story building resembling a spacious modern houseboat. Here you have interrupted views of the river and the city skyline with the appearance of ducks and pelicans on the water adding to the nautical atmosphere. Red Ochre which is the fine dining restaurant is located on the upper level whilst River Cafe on the lower level, has a more casual feel, serving a good selection of Italian dishes.

With ample parking and located only a few minutes from the CBD, Red Ochre is a great choice for a corporate event, product launch or a wedding reception. The venue can be hired exclusively for large gatherings or alternatively the private dining Park View Room can accommodate smaller functions of up to 50 guests.


Red Ochre plays with indigenous Australian flavours and the result is food as comforting as ugg boots in winter. South Australia is blessed to enjoy abundant produce and Red Ochre Grill showcases all of the area's strongest flavours. Inspired by the earthy flavours of Australia's own meat, Red Ochre's dishes are uniquely Australian without crossing over to stereotypical Australiana fare. Instead, they are creative and colourful, and also feature some Asian influences.

The strongest harvest of marron from Kangaroo Island, rock lobster from Robe, beef from the Coonawarra and oysters from Pristine Bay all feature on the menu throughout the year. Red Ochre's bush tucker is the result of the drive to create a "truly Australian" dining experience inspired by indigenous ingredients. South Australia produces 75% of Australia's premium bottled wine and Red Ochre's wine list features their pick of the best, at every price range. With 24 drops available by the glass, you too can have a taste of every region.

Set on the tranquil banks of Adelaide's River Torrens, this restaurant should inspire other restaurants to start taking advantage of our native flavours and make native Australian cuisine stand out on the world stage.

Davis - 13/09/2012
My partner and I went for his birthday...I booked online and I put a special request for a birthday cake. The birthday cake never showed up...honestly the waitresses were rushing us, no time to breath. The atmosphere was cold, people talking you can't hear music or anything just noise. Meals were plain not quite what we expected for fine dining place or price wise. I liked the crocodile cakes and that's pretty much it. Perhaps I wont recommend it all. It's a pricey restaurant.
