A big hit with visitors and somewhat of a centre for local information, River Lounge, a two-storey international restaurant serves up excellent fare at reasonable prices. Upstairs, old-style movies are occasionally shown and the River Lounge is a font of innovative and creative ideas with, of course, a great view out over the river.
River Lounge goes for a beach vibe, with pale-hued furniture, floor-to-ceiling dark timber shutters and canvas sling chairs set in a patch of talcum powder-fine sand. The menu skews towards specialties from Vietnam and the Mediterranean, with local dishes like white rose (delicate, pork-filled rice flour dumplings) sharing space with lamb chops barbecued with rosemary and cinnamon-and-sugar or jam crêpes. The café’s 8:30am opening and scenic setting make this a great spot for your morning cappuccino.
