We have eaten there twice this month both times our experience was a very enjoyable one and the food very good. Your host works very hard to make sure all is acceptable while dining he is very attentive and advises if anything selected may not be available as he buys fresh and popular dishes can go quickly. The meal service... More

My aunt, cousin and I were visiting a shop near Meadowbank and were running late so decided to try out lunch at Stonebar as it was the only place near the ferry stop. We went in and were immediately looked after by a wonderful lady. We decided to order a seafood tapas plate for three. Shortly thereafter a huge platter... More

We had a family meal here in August. The setting is nice and the atmosphere good whilst being quiet enough for easy conversation. The lamb rump was sublime!

Went there for a special occasion. There was only one other table in use on a Saturday for lunch. Friendly service. The entrees were yummy. The scallops were some of the best I have tried as were the oysters. The dips plate was also very good. The main courses were so bad. Some of the shell fish was not cooked... More

Not sure why there aren't more customers here on a weekend, food is great, friendly service. Been here a few times. Furniture showing its age, but its clean and comfortable.

A group of eight old friends met for lunch at a 'mid point'. The banks of the Parramatta River near the railway bridge is a great location, with ample parking being available, at least on this weekend day. Service was friendly, most found their entrees good, some of the mains were good, but my husband and I may have just... More

A lovely peaceful lunch when Sydney's weather turned its worse! BYO wine, but also licensed, staff were courteous, food was very good and fresh. We were not rushed between courses nor at the end of the day when we were the last to leave.

After wanting to eat locally we ventured to try this restaurant again after giving it a miss for a few years after less than pleasant experiences in the past. It was an acceptable night out this time but wouldn't rush back. Meal was average, tasty but not outstanding. Service was good but not overly attentive.

Visited this restaurant while visiting our daughter. Beautiful waterfront situation which is somewhat blocked by plants. Shame. Meals were served promptly and were very nice.

This venue is right by thr water but unfortunately this is all blocked out by large hedges. Not the venues fault. The seafood is nice but i do question if it's fresh or frozen. Portions are generous and the Service is usually down to a small group of waiters around lunch. Prices are on the high side.

Thank SydneyHof
