After a great evening at a adjacent outlet, we crossed this place. The music and ambience was tempting. Had a few beers and some food. Was tasty too. Wish we had more time to spend here. But would recommend to visit.

Nice spot along the Yarra river. Food was a nice size portion and service was friendly. If your feeling a little chilly they have outside heating. Nothing on the menu to rave about but it is a nice place to try instead of the Arbory.

Dropped in on the way back from a football match at the MCG and this place was great. Right next to the river, casual dining and lovely food.

Description
Riverland is the original waterfront icon in Melbourne where you can escape the daily grind in our urban beer garden hideaway. This iconic venue is situated on the banks of the Yarra in the historic Federation Wharf vaults, just below Federation Square. Our year round outdoor venue is the ideal spot for beers and bites while soaking up the sun in summer or basking under the heaters and warming up with one of our winter cocktails in the cooler months. Riverland provides a relaxed warm atmosphere where people can enjoy the company of friends or grab a quick drink and BBQ sausage before the game.
