Previously I have enjoyed meals here as they are usually reasonably priced and well presented. However, on this occasion I chose a Chicken Kiev at $23.90. It was served with a minimum of vegetables and the chicken breast was hollow and a bit dry. Not...More

We decided to have dinner at The Riverina, after hearing about the change in management, and we were pleasantly surpised! The new owners were very friendly and the service was well above our expectations. The food was delicious and fresh. We will definitely be returning!

The food here was very generous and tasty and the kids loved theirs too. Service was friendly and smiling. We came on a Wednesday night and they had trivia playing, looked like lots of fun.

The restaurant is newly renovated and the decor is nice. The menu is typical pub fare. Order at the counter and buy your drinks from the bar. I had the porterhouse steak. Big meal, well priced and tasty. Chips were yum.

We often eat at this hotel but are finding the noise too loud now since renovations, especially when it is busy. However, recently we were there (usually in a group but only two this time). Steak was lovely, tender and cooked as order. Fish was...More
