Jolleys, housed in an 1880s boathouse on the banks of the River Torrens with views of boats, ducks, and black swans, is best suited for long lunches, as it closes very early at night (8:30pm). There are a handful of outside tables, but if you miss out, the bright and airy interior, with its cream-colored tablecloths and directors' chairs, isn't too much of a letdown. You might start with miso-crusted venison with grilled mushroom, mizuna salad, and Japanese mustard sauce. Moving on, you could tuck into the crisp-fried tea-smoked duck, with Chinese spinach, and blood plum and tamarind sauce. (Ignore the peaceful quacking out on the river if you can.)
