The Jetty South Bank
Sunlight dapples across the tables of The Jetty South Bank, while the Balinese fitout transports diners to sandy shores afar. An idyllic spot for a crisp glass of wine and an intricately flavoured meal, this River Quay restaurant is the perfect setting for a long lunch or breezy riverside dinner. From market fish to nasi goreng, the menu draws inspiration from both fresh seafood and local produce, infused with touches of Asian cuisine. Boneless Bangalow pork rib marinated in honey and soy and served on a bed of green paw paw and hot mint salad melds textures and temperatures, well paired to a cool glass of McLaren Vale rosé.
Change is in the air for The Jetty. The River Quay restaurant is set to close its doors in last August 2017 for a huge revamp, reopening in early September with a new design, new bar and new menu. The plan is to split the venue into distinct bar and restaurant spaces, seating 40 and 80 patrons respectively. Highly regarded chef Rhett Willis will be at the kitchen’s helm, with the new menu set to feature the likes of fresh wasabi leaves with Hawaiian-style salmon, black rice, nori, sesame and avocado, and kangaroo with black-pepper crust and ginger carrot puree. Mornings will also be spotlighted when The Jetty reopens – the riverside restaurant will be the only River Quay spot serving up coffee from 7:00 am every day alongside a selection of pastries.
