Had a gift voucher used toward a family member birthday. Impressed with excellent service, great food, and ambient atmosphere. First visit to this place. Not cheap but we were happy to pay for a great night out. Now the pavlova was huge!!! We recommend!

Great little restaurant with terrific food and good service. We had a set menu today, so we could head off to the cricket and the food was divine. Excellent entrees and the mains great too. Looking at the river is just an added bonus!

My partner and I had dinner at Jolleys on the weekend. The views, service, food and drink list was fantastic. We had a wonderful and relaxing evening and couldn't fault a thing. We would come back again in a flash.

Jolley's is a long time institution in Adelaide, and situated overlooking the River Torrens, a 5 minute walk from the city of Adelaide, and on a sunny day it doesn't get any better! The menu is excellent, particularly the wagu tartare entree, and the main course duck is brilliant. The wine list expansive and the service great. I have noticed... More

Went there yesterday (ISunday) lunchtime for my wife's 'significant' birthday. If the service wasn't so completely useless, you'd HAVE to rate this place 5 STARS. The food is absolutely amazing, but when will Adelaide restaurants realise, that having 3rd rate service is NOT acceptable. W A K E U P..!!!!!!

Jolleys was recommended to us for a family birthday celebration. As we are from Melbourne we took the recommendation. It was disappointing to only be able to have a set menu as there were 10 of us but the food looked ok. Service was a little slow to start but the entrees were great. My pork belly was excellent and... More

The location is great, it's nice and calm, the service is good. The prices are high but you can get money-off deals and it's got a great wine list. Only thing I can quibble is the lack of non-meat choices; otherwise it is excellent.

Some of the most picturesque views and a great place to spend your whole afternoon. Food is quality and straightforward. Conservative pallets won't be disappointed.

Went for my sisters birthday and was really impressed not only by the food but by the excellent service. Nothing was an issue and the waiter albeit with a funny moustache was friendly, attentive and probably one of most onto it waiters I have had. I was genuinely impressed with the food (Recommend the Pork BellyStarted or Kingfish for a... More
