A two minute drive from Portside to an uncrowded spot on the river. Good variety menu, with most meals under $30, and a reasonable range of wines. Friendly staff, efficient service. Much better value than some of the overpriced cafes and restaurants at Portside.

Great spot. Quiet backdrop. Fab menu. Must book for weekends. Ride JetSki or paddle up to foreshore, enjoy Coffee & bite to eat. Where else could you do that?

if you have time to take the City Cat and enjoy a 45 minute ride from Riverside in the city, you can do worse than to get off at Northshore and stop for lunch at the Cafe adjacent to the ferry terminal. Whilst it's not the most scenic part of the river, the cafe is a nice excuse to break... More

Had lunch here a few days ago and was very impressed with the location and view - the food and table service was good too. One disappointment, when I asked the lady on the till if there was anything we could order off the breakfast menu the lady snapped "Not anything!" She then rang up my lunch order and asked... More

Attended a wedding here back in September, the food was a buffet and pretty delicious! not a huge venue so it was a little squished. Only allowed to get 2 drinks at a time which was a little frustrating as we were in a group of four so two of us had to go up every time. Also took a... More

Came for a work function on Cup day and gee it was fun. The venue is in a great spot, the food was good and the service was casual yet professional. They even had a horse in the park which you could pat and organised a raffle and lucky door prize. Such fun. Well done peeps.

I had lunch on Sunday at Northshore and it was an all round great experience! It has a wonderful vibe being right next to the river and a great open air feel. We were instantly greeted by such friendly, attentive staff who despite having a fully packed restaurant, catered to our every need. The manager, Mark went above and beyond... More

He was very attentive to our needs and made us feel special. The food was brilliant and well presented. I tried one of the specials of the day which was... More

Shared lunch with interstate visitors and we all enjoyed the meal and the view on a beautiful day. Food fresh and tasty, staff very friendly and efficient on a Monday afternoon which was quite busy. We have been a number of times previously and knew it had easy access from car park to restaurant which was essential. Visitors said it... More
