About Jolleys Boathouse Restaurant

Just a short stroll from Adelaide's bustling CBD, find a sense of tranquillity upon entering Jolleys Boathouse Restaurant, situated at the end of Jolleys Lane. Perched on the banks of the River Torrens, Jolleys has long been a favourite destination for locals of Adelaide and visitors alike thanks to uninterrupted views and a relaxed atmosphere. An innovative menu based on local, seasonal produce is well complemented by an extensive wine list which highlights both local and international grape varietals. To begin a feast, perhaps start with lobster tortellini, tomatoes and lobster bisque; before moving on to mains such as Kiwami rump steak, Diane butter, beef jus and sides of kipfler potatoes and salsa verde butter, along with grilled flat beans, ginger honey mustard and smoked almond.

Excellent dining experience
South Australian fresh produce at it best. The food and service are both equally outstanding. Unique and delicious. A truly great dining experience.


Food, fabulous food!
We opted for the Chef’s menu so we could enjoy more variety and it was superb.
Beautiful setting and great service yet relaxed and affordable.
Adelaide is very lucky to have this yummy Chef,….and the yummy food he delivers!


This is one of Adelaide's finest Restaurants. The cuisine is amazing it warrants many visits as it is difficult trying to choose the best dish so many sound so good. The setting is something else sitting right on the Bank of The River Torrens


Food was fab. Service was terrible.


Fantastic food and service - a worthy treat.


Delightful Lunch, I adore this Restaurant, to the executive Chef, Congratulations! The Food Wonderful! Ilook forward to my next visit.


One of my favourite Restaurants. Recently visited & was not disappointed. The food was beautiful! This Restaurant with its delightful location,would take a lot to beat, over looking the River Torrens & surrounding Park Lands. I wish the Chairs were a little more comfortable. I intend taking some of my over seas visitors there for Dinner shortly, I just know they will enjoy it very much.


We attended in the evening. whilst it is still a great river spot, it is better in the daylight.
food extremely rich, but generally, quality.
a little overpriced, but worth paying for the position during the day.
the waitress had to leave us in the middle of announcing the specials to show new customers in. a little awkward, must've been short staffed.
