This is my second time dining at The Jetty, and I was impressed that first time as well. This time, we dined in the late afternoon with the aim of catching the sunset period at Southbank. The food and service were sensational! To start we...had the fritters and the special dip. Delish! Mains consisted of the 'Market Fish of the Day', 'Slow-Cooked Pork Tenderloin', and the 'Wagyu Cheeseburger' and 'Chef's Pasta of the Day' for our teenagers. All were delicious and excellent fare. And the desserts! Wow! What is fantastic to see as well, is the dairy free, gluten free and vegetarian/vegan options too. This is throughout the main menu, and in the desserts. We chose the Coconut Pannacotta, Dulce De Leche Creme Brulee and the Crunchy Swiss Pavlova. All were amazing, but the pick was the pavlova, when it came to us sharing the desserts. Dairy free too. It was so well balanced and refreshing. The food is also reasonably priced given the prime location. Portion size is excellent. Highly recommended!More

My review is based on the service we received during our visit on Saturday evening. My son become ill quite quickly whilst we were dining at the staff could not have been more helpful. They offered support and attention to our son that we could...not even have imagined. We did get to have our entree and drinks prior to our sone getting ill and the food was superb. Do yourself a favour and get to this place to eat. On thanking the restaurant management through email for the assistance of the staff, I received the reply email. Hi Ron, Thanks so much for getting in touch. Sorry to hear about the incident on Saturday night but it is great to hear that you found it was dealt with in the right ways. The Jetty team are stellar and we are very proud to have them as part of our group. We would love to welcome the three of you back for dinner so you can fully enjoy the riverside dining experience offered at The Jetty. There is a $100 gift card for your family on your return and you can get in contact with myself directly to book this in. We look forward to having you back again soon, have a great week! (I hope Matthew is feeling better!)More

A guaranteed good time at the Jetty in Southbank. Great cocktail and wine list, delicious food and genuinely good customer service. A great place to catch up with friends or for a family lunch/dinner. Lovely outlook over the river and sometimes live music from the...park.More

This establishment for me was 10/10. Although it was raining, we still enjoyed a riverside, Riverview table. The location is unbeatable. The service was good, quick and attentive. The food was very nice. Nothing to fancy, a step up from cafe food and a step...in the right direction for the area it’s situated in. My 4 year old and I enjoyed the warm olives, calamari, and corn fritters with a kids tenders and chips. For a casual lunch or a special event, I feel like this place can tick all your boxes.More

Booked for my husband’s birthday with our children. Booked table to ensure a nice position. Unfortunately not the case. Children’s Meals delivered with no cutlery, had to track a waitress down to get some. Waitress said there should be some on the table, ah no,...which is why I’m asking for some. Table was wonky and not level. Waitress did not tell us any specials, we had to crane our necks to read a sign away from our table. meal was ok nothing special. Asked if we wanted to see the dessert menu. Waited 20 minutes for the menu which we had to track down ourselves eventually. Lost the desire, went elsewhere for dessert. Experience not in line with prices. Poor service. Won’t be going back, wished we had gone elsewhere.More

I'd say yes, and agree the grassed area in front is good for the kids too.. Some of the other Southbank (grey st, little Stanley st ) restaurants are right on busy roads and you will certainly not let the kids out of their... More
