Welcome to the River Café where you can escape the rush of Sandton, in the middle of Sandton. We are located in the Sandton Field and Study centre and offer a tranquil dining experience in a relaxed outdoor setting, where you can enjoy quality time with your family and kids.

We provide the most delicious breakfasts which are served on our lawns or inside our establishment. For lunch come and enjoy our gourmet salads, burgers, pastas, meze platters, wraps and more. In the summer months, we are open on the first Friday evening of the month and encourage patrons to come and enjoy an early dinner and some delicious cocktails as you watch the sunset.

At the River Café we love quiet places, open spaces, fresh herbs and warm service. We love watching the kids run and play in our trees and watch the bunnies as they run wild in our lush gardens.

Kids at River Café

As a child friendly establishment we offer enclosed, secure grounds for kids to play in. We believe that the outdoors is the best kind of fun a child can have and thus have a variety of jungle gyms, swings, slides jumping castles and water slides (in summer) for kids to play on. We also have a giant sandpit so ensure to bring buckets and spades so your kids can build their dream sand castles. Our beautiful trees are also perfect for kids to climb and play on. If the kids are quiet, they may even see our wild bunnies roaming around our beautiful gardens.

For the more indoor child, we further provide chalk boards and colouring in books for them to busy themselves with.

We also provide a full kids menu complete with kiddies toasted sandwiches, cheesy pasta, sausages and chips, fish fingers, beef burgers and much more.

Kids Parties

The River Café is also the perfect setting for a wonderful kids party. All you need to do is arrive and everything is done! We will set a beautiful table for you and the kids under our garden gazebo and provide full entertainment including jumping castles, water slides, jungle gyms, an enormous sand pit and the most delicious food that parents will love as well. You will also receive your own personalised waiter to cater for your every need and the needs of the kids. Please note that we only hold provisional bookings for 48 hours.

We can also arrange additional entertainment on request such as pony rides, go karts, face paintings, soccer, foam pits and more - we have ample space to cater for any individual request.
