We came for a function and was pretty impressed with the food.. Didn't have to wait too long considering the size of function.. Service was OK. Would probably like to return to try a few more dishes..

Nestled on the River Torrens under the King William Road bridge and just out of sight of Adelaide oval you will find Jollies Boathouse, it's been way too long since I last visited and I was most impressed by the presentation of the restaurant, it oozed charm. The positives from my perspective were, excellent location and scenery, excellent service, excellent... More

This well-located restaurant sits on the banks of the Torrens River in Adelaide not far from the city centre. The space and views are lovely but it is the food which is amazing. The 12-hour cooked lamb shoulder was scrumptious and at $55 for two amazing value. We were served by a friendly and efficient waiter who was very knowledgable... More

Steak was a little bit over cook and dry, pork belly was spot on! Beautiful location by the river, warm and peaceful.

We decided to have our quarterly team lunch at Jolleys and what a great decision it was. Both the service and the food was well above average. The Caramelised Pork Belly entree was to die for; the mains all good and the desserts topped it off. The only dish not up to standard was the Black Angus Scotch fillet at... More

We enjoyed a small family reunion dinner here recently - 2 from UK, 2 from Adelaide, 2 from USA. We made a note of this 'occasion' at the time of booking and it was a lovely touch that the waiter referred to our special night when he spoke to us - shows they take note of the detail! Our waiter... More

I had a lovely meal here booked in before a Fringe show. The atmosphere was professionally relaxed and the food was delightful. Plates were nicely arranged, and food managed to taste even better than it looked! I have Celiac Disease (medically, I need to be Gluten-free) and the service from both the wait and kitchen staff was great. I was... More

After a bit of a false start to our special occasion dinner, things were redeemed with the arrival of our scrumptious meal and a change of waiter. On arrival we had the misfortune of a waiter who obviously found us to be a nuisance! When the martini arrived without a toothpick to retrieve the olives his response was if they... More

We dined here with a large group in January 2017 and found the service, food and atmosphere all very good. The dining room overlooks the river and was nice and cool at the end of a long hot day. Meals were not too long in coming out, considering the number of diners all ordering at once. We enjoyed our evening... More
