My city friends were very impressed with my choice of venue. Fantastic view over the lake, good food, excellent friendly service. One of my party was in recaptures over her lentil-burger.

Good location with indoor and veranda dining. Menu not very extensive, but adequate for lighter cafe-style meals. Meals aside, Aquacafe is a very good coffee stop. Easy parking on the roadside or in the adjacent carpark, but it can be quite busy on weekends when...More
Let me start by saying this was traditionally my favourite place to take friends visiting Goolwa for lunch. The setting remains perfect, however the food has dropped in quality considerably as ownership changes have seen the previous focus on seafood changed to a more conventional...More
Our menu reflects change and diversity to cater for more people but our focus is still on fresh and local produce with seafood being a priority. It is unfortunate you were unhappy with your negroni - it was remade in front of you (free of...More
We had lunch at the Aquacaf today. I gather it had a good profile in the local area some years ago. Today it was basic with no refinement and no chef in the kitchen I suspect. My wife had salt and pepper squid which was...More

Dinner looking over the river at dusk was a memorable experience. Beautiful position, food excellent and friendly personalised service from the host who was welcoming and warm (and funny too)!
Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We work hard so it is good to get such great feedback....Jon is a funny man who loves his work.
What a fantastic meal, service and view. This venue has window around three sides for views .... Beautiful. I had the grilled Coorong Mullet with salad .... So simple, yet one of the best fish dishes I've had for a long time. Even the salad...More
Thank you so much..it makes everything we do worthwhile.
Fantastic but pricy menu. Service was very slow and we were forgotten about. We finally ordered the chicken burger, great; Avocado with warm ocean trout was so bitter and the fish was dry and cold - we spent time trying to dissect the meal to...More
Thank you for your comments. It is always good to hear regardless, as we strive to please all of our customers. I would like to make a couple of points. We were busy so service was initially a little slower than I would like but...More
Not our first visit but our first review. It's always our go to for a meal when in Goolwa. We arrived somewhat early for Sunday breakfast. Our reception was very friendly. Personally I like the fact that the owner is a little gruff but he...More
Hello, thank you for your fantastic review. I took great pleasure showing Jon the review....as you pointed out.. he can be a little gruff but he IS a really genuine and funny man.
We have come here a couple of times and it has always been friendly. We have a holiday home and Goolwa and like to take the dog for a walk along the river when we are down. We have stopped on our way and had...More
Thank you so much for taking the time to write. We love to see people sitting with their dogs.
Friendly welcoming staff and tasty food. This cafe has a very pleasant setting on the banks of the Murray River not far from where the barrage goes across. Australian seasonal fish, beer battered with gluten free chips, garden salad & goddess dressing (Murray River Mullet...More
Thank you, we are so lucky to have such great staff. The setting speaks for itself and fresh local produce is a must. It was lovely of you to take the time to write.
