My husband and I, along with my mother and our Aussie foodie friends from Sydney, had lunch at Jolley's Boathouse Restaurant in Adelaide after our 4 night adventure in the Barossa--before flying back to Sydney. Even after having dined at some of the top restaurants in Australia (i.e. Quay, Sepia, The Bridge Room in Sydney, and Hentley Farm and Appellation... More

The stunning garden setting on the banks of the Torrens river is just across from the Adelaide oval. The food is beautifully presented and served by enthusiastic, knowledgeable staff. We were four who all enjoyed our experience there.We asked for the dreadful music to be changed and turned down, and they kindly obliged.

The pork belly entree, Vietnamese style, was amazing. I had the swordfish which was good but not outstanding. But the frozen sheeps milk parfait was a superb dessert. Just perfect.

We had quite an amazing night at Jolleys. The food was outstanding accompanied by the highest quality service. Of the restaurants I tried whilst visiting Adelaide, this gets my vote!

Hadn't been to Jolleys for over 15 years. Opportunity arose for celebratory lunch with family. Excellent attentive service. Plenty of good options on food menu - interesting & reasonably priced wine selection. Food was excellent - can recommend the lamb shoulder, the goat tagine & the tuna steak. Lovely afternoon.

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
