Welcometo the Mallee Fowl Restaurant

The Mallee Fowl Restaurant lies in the heart of the Riverland in South Australia. Located just four kilometres from the town of Berri and set in twenty four acres of picturesque bushland. With chooks, geese, emus and its own quandong plantation, the Mallee Fowl has become a ‘must visit’ destination for locals and tourists alike.

With it’s fascinating collection of eclectic Australiana paraphernalia it has earned the title of best themed restaurant in Australia. The Mallee Fowl serves  Aussie country style meals, complimented by an excellent range of wines, South Australian beers & ciders.

The Mallee Fowl Restaurant is the riverlands longest running restaurant & is Australia's only themed restaurant running 100% off the grid, we also now have a baby change table installed.

MediaVoted Best Themed Restaurant in Australia


We had the absolute pleasure of dining at your unique restaurant recently. What a fantastic find. The food was just amazing and none of us could find one fault in anything we ate. We found the experience of watching the chef and staff working together in the main body of the restaurant something different and interesting to experience. They all worked so well together - very calm, not like it happens in most restaurant kitchens. Well done - keep it up and we will be back with more of our friends and family in the not too distant future, hopefully.

10/10 to the Mallee Fowl Restaurant. I arranged to bring our social club for a trip to the Riverland and we visited the Mallee Fowl for a meal – I was a little dubious as there were 36 who arrived together on a coach, and there were already many diners in the restaurant - a lot of people to look after. I needn’t have worried as the staff took care of everything, even some dietary requirements. The food was fantastic, served promptly and piping hot. As for the surrounds... it set the mood for a wonderful, fun evening. Thank you Chef Caryl and your terrific staff.

My husband and I are visitors from Los Angeles and dined at your restaurant in April of this year. I had to write and tell you how much we enjoyed ourselves. The Australiana theme was mind-blowing, so interesting, funny and unique, we loved it. Every overseas visitor to the Riverland should take time to visit. My husband had the Quail followed by The Swagman’s Special and raved about it while I had the Cowpatch Mushrooms (love the names) and Squatters Prize Barramundi. We finished the meal with two serves of Quandong and Macadamia cheesecake. We couldn’t have wished for a better meal or nicer service anywhere in the world. Congratulations.
