Though just a brief stroll from busy North Terrace, the dining deck’s water views and dappled shade are instantly relaxing. The bistro-style menu is intriguing and confidently brief. Alongside simple, handsome steaks, there are choices like tea-smoked duck or a luscious crab risotto with mascarpone. Desserts are inspiringly indulgent, with witty variations on classics like rum baba and passionfruit pavlova – reason enough to dally a little longer and enjoy this time-honoured mix of smart food and beguiling riverside locale.
