We were a family of six went for breakfast. The food was great with prompt and polite service. We had vegetarian food as well as typical breakfast with milkshake. Everything was prepared fresh.

Meet my dad here for a catch up. Previewed the menu and there was a big selection at reasonable prices. Nice staff, good service and quiet location by the water and rivercat. We shared the antipasto which was ok-ish. Not bad but not special either......More

Tucked away in a quieter corner of Parramatta, THE PORT BAR remains one of the Citys best kept secrets. The choice of Alfresco or UnderCover dining is one of the quaint features of this establishment. Staff were attentive, welcoming and accomodating ( especially when Sydney...More

We booked a large function here and had our own upstairs area. It seems as though the staff went to Coles frozen food section, and put box frozen food in the oven, and ruining it at the same time. $55 a head, that I'd pay...More

Sadly Port Bar is not what it used to be. The menu has changed significantly and prices have increased. Food is tasteless and prepared without love. The skewer plate was $30 and meat was dry and bland, bread was stale, potatoes had been baked two...More
