Lunch was delicious. The grilled Coorong mullet was fresh and served with homemade tartare sauce, salad and chips. Subtle fresh herbs complemented the fish beautifully. We chose a local Langhorne Creek Sauvignon Blanc which was chilled & zesty. It paid to book the day before as we got an inside window table out of the wind. Service was really friendly... More

We have been coming to the Aquacaf for many years as we have a beach house just down the road. It has changed hands a number of times over those years. But generally the standard has been very good. Combining this with the excellent location has meant we have been happy to return many times. Today was our first visit... More

We had a very pleasant brunch with our family. Across the board the food was top notch and enjoyed by all. The views across the Murray River from the outdoor verandah were beautiful and the service was pleasant. The only negative was that it was all just a bit overpriced.

Thank you so much for your great review. We really strive to make the food as fresh and local as possible. I understand your concern over pricing but unfortunately with the high cost of top quality food, staffing etc, these are the prices formulated. More

Had a lovely lunch at this very busy cafe. The service was good, food was great. We sat outside as it was very busy and noisy inside. A beautiful day to enjoy the view of the river. We had a aqua burger and sliders. The burger was to die for. I thought the sliders had a touch too much dressing... More

Had dinner on a busy Friday night in December. All 4 meals delicious. 2 of my party had the fish parcels - they both raved a must try! Coorong mullet - superb as was the squid all locally sourced.

When visiting the Fleurieu, my friends and I love visiting Aquacaf for lunch. This is another local business which has a strong focus on local, fresh produce. The staff are very friendly and accomodating, especially as we required gluten and peanut free. The food is interesting, delicious and never disappoints.

You guys get a rave review for the views. Just lovely. Coffee was great. Couldn't get ourselves to buy breakfast because it seemed a bit overpriced. I'm sure it's lovely.

The adults in our family group enjoyed the coffee, offered in many different choices, the children loved their big bowls of hot potato chips followed by ice creams. It was afternoon when we visited, so our choice of coffee was sufficient. It is a place to come back to, it would be lovely to have lunch here too. To sit... More

Thank you so much for your lovely comments. Our beautiful Mahalia coffee is made in Robe SA (well worth a visit to their coffee shop if you are there) and we pride ourselves on making consistently great coffee every time. We look forward to see you again soon. Kind regards Sally and Jon More
