Unique and inventive cuisine set above the river. We selected from the a la carte rather than the 3-course menu, but it was a difficult choice. Ultimately the oysters made the decision for us as they weren't available on the set menu. The crab stuffed zucchini flower side that came with the blue eyed cod was spectacular. Amazing place with... More

We had a great time trying the food at The River. We selected items from the set menu - a 3 course meal. From what I understand the set menu changes every week. There were two of us and we tried different entrees and mains but had the same desserts. The food is amazing, with superior service and great views.... More

We were staying at Bateman's Bay and drove down to Moruya for lunch at The River. Easy parking outside the blue restaurant and a bright fresh interior. We had asked for a window view and where we were seated we could gaze over the misty river scene. The menu was varied and interesting and we chose the 2 course menu... More

Rates with On the Pier Restaurant Batemans Bay and Cupitt's Kitchen Restaurant in Cupitt's Vineyard Ulladulla. This is one of the three top restaurants in the Eurobodalla area. The quality and taste sensation of the food here is definitely a five star without any doubt. The presentation was excellent, timing between dishes exactly right, and the wine selection was superb...

We were looking for a restaurant for dinner last week and some places were closed but not this nice restaurant very close to the river. We had a table for 2 at the window with a nice cool breeze through the windows. The staff was very friendly. Looking at the menu we decided to have the 3 course menu. Very... More

A pleasant venue for dinner with a good view of the river. Excellent service. Very high quality food and a good wine list. I had the vegetarian options for starter and main. They were a little on the rich side for my taste both with a frothy rich sauce. They were, however, beautifully prepared and presented.
