Hector's on the Wharf

Bistro in Goolwa

Right on the Murray under the span of the Hindmarsh Island Bridge, eating at Hector's (festooned with fishing rods and oars) is like hanging out in your mate's boathouse. Seafood chowder, crumbed scallops and spinach-and-feta pie are sweetly complemented by jazzy tunes and local wines. Good coffee, too. Call to see if it's open Friday and Saturday nights when you're visiting.
