Enduring, reliable, slightly out of the way - this well-loved riverside stalwart is a bit like Adelaide itself. Inside, it's boathouse chic (polished boards, white-painted rafters), with old-hand service, an Asian-inflected menu, mainstream tunes and chatty urbanites. Entrées are texturally adventurous and big-hearted. Crunchy twice-cooked duck leg comes with glossy fennel and green apple. A barramundi "wings" special offers the sweet collar of the fish and its chewy fins (like Icarus's sandals) with a pickle of cucumber, lime, red and green chilli and garlic. Main courses are similarly generous and delicious. Try a Cape Grim Scotch fillet, with chimichurri and fingerling potatoes, or a nest of spaghetti alla chitarra with hunks of crab, pumpkin, lemon, rocket and chilli oil. For dessert, tackle lemon curd parfait with summer berries and sorbet. Attentive staff help navigate the local-leaning wine list. Craft beers also make the grade.
