This was a return visit to a much enjoyed restaurant. However, the servings were terrible some of the food did not taste fresh, more burnt and as if trying too hard. Servings were small and strangely put together. We ordered simple mixed drinks which were barely drinkable. The waitress recorded the wrong desert. All in all so disappointing and we... More

Travelling back from Canberra we took a wrong turn & discovered the " Wharf Rd Restaurant". As it was 1.00 p.m. we decided to have a substantial lunch & went in. The decore is very simple & they have retaned the simple "Cottage Presentation" of the building with large glass windows providing a great view of the Shoalhaven River &... More

This restaurant tries to serve great quality local produce. That being said a few of the selections were miserable in size for the money,with strange presentations. We ordered 2 X 6 natural oysters and they served us a dozen together. We had asparugus with egg and goat dressing which was 6 miserable baby spears. Not good value at all. However... More

Arrive at 7.50pm. We did not have a booking. We were told there would be a 20 minute wait approximately. Had a drink from the bar as suggested which was enjoyable. Time ticked away. Strange that there were quite a number of empty tables. The very pleasant waiter suggested after 20 mins another drink from the bar which we declined.... More

Good food, wine and beer changes frequently. Friendly service though not always prompt. We ate here 3 times in 4 weeks. Lovely views of the river and iconic bridge.

Love this restaurant, the view out to the river is awesome. We shared the blue eyed cod, the pulled pork and the heirloom tomato salad, love this way of eating. The chocolate ricotta cake with tamarillo ice cream was delicious. The service was slow but as we were in no hurry it didn't worry us.

Beautiful location overlooking the Shoalhaven River with the flowering Jacarandas outside. We started off with Kangaroo Valley olives with lemon and thyme, which were delicious and squid chips with kombu salt, which were also yummy. For mains I had hot smoked blue eye trevalla, white bean puree, broad beans, parsnip chips, anchovy crumb as well as Crisp fried broccoli with... More

Great position on the river and fabulous decor. However I was disappointed with the food. My fish was a little dry and my husbands pulled pork needed to be cooked longer as it was tough for a slow cooked pulled pork dish.
