Head to Sturt Reserve at Murray Bridge for several waterfront options including the Murray Bridge Community Club and the recently renovated Riverscape Restaurant where you can enjoy views of the bridge over lunch or dinner.
The Meningie Cheese Factory (open Tuesday–Sunday) is one of the best places to eat local seafood – the dining room has fine views of Lake Albert.
Experience the beauty of the Murray from The Pretoria Hotel at Mannum or watch the sun go down from the banks of the river at the Swan Reach Hotel. Spectacular views can also be enjoyed from the dining room at the Riverside Hotel in Tailem Bend.
Café Mannum offers views across the Murray and a superb modern menu featuring local produce.
If you are heading down river and across the lakes, then spoil yourself with some spectacular dining views, including Aquacaf and Hector's on the Wharf (riverside at Goolwa), or the best little cafe on the beach - Cafe Bombera, overlooking Goolwa Beach.
