We called here at 8pm one evening and found the restaurant still open but fairly quiet. The service was excellent and we were made to feel welcome. Good food was swiftly served and we had a good evening. What a difference staff make.

However we returned a couple of days later at lunch time expecting to be well fed but alas all was different. The staff were poor and the service was terrible. We waited ages for our order to be taken and then it was a long time coming. The waiter tried to serve the expenive steak main course with the starte!!. When we said "no way" we were told that we would have to wait and then they would serve the original food despite it now being cold. In the end we walked out half way through our meal with the head waiter admitting that the service was bad. Our tip would be "don't go ".

If you are looking at something different other than regular street restaurants, this is a quiet riverside restaurant in Parramatta that offers great food and drinks. Whats more they also have happy hours! Had the Garlic Butter Pizza Base and beer by the riverside... absolutely yummy

Good quality food & wine selection, great view out onto the river. Maybe a little expensive, but probably comparable to other decent restaurant's of similar quality.

I don't why I only just decided to write a review now when I have been going to this place almost every month without a fail. I have elderly parents whom I take for drives and lunches. We've been to numerous restaurants but this place is tops! For its scrumptious food, for its location and superb service. My dad can't hardly walk and as soon as he knows we're going to Port Bar, he finds the energy to walk down the steps. He is turning 96 in March and we're definitely celebrating it here without a doubt.
