Locals Aren't Wrong!

  • "Thank you Ann and the Riverside Bar and Dining team. You made my 50th birthday celebration function totally amazing and definitely an event to remember. The food (canapés) and cocktails were absolutely delicious and the atmosphere was second to none. I am already planning my next big celebration function! Everyone - if you are looking for somewhere to host your special function definitely call Riverside Bar and Dining - they will make it special and memorable for you."

  • "My wife & I had a lovely lunch here. Being originally from the U.K I love my fish & chips & I had the lunch special & they were excellent. As soon as they were brought to the table I knew I would enjoy them. My wife had the barramundi & her meal was also excellent. Would definitely recommend the Riverside bar & dining."

  • "If you have not been here you must plan a day or night to come. We came back and everything from the service to the quality of food was 5-star. You can tell from the way you're treated, the staff really have a passion for what they do all the way down to how the food is presented. Will be making this place a weekly routine."

  • "Absolutely outstanding in service and quality, keeps me coming back for more and more! The range of food and beverage is above the highest standards and priced exceptionally. If you’re looking for something new to try in Penrith I personally recommend this gem of a Restaurant/Bar, you will not be disappointed!"

  • "Booked outside for my husband’s 30th birthday. There was around 45 people 15 being kids and it was so amazing, food was delicious, service was incredible. Staff were friendly. The manager Taryn was so nice & had made us pre-order our food and the night just went so well with everyone getting their food within 30 mins of arriving. Altogether it was a fantastic dining experience even the kids enjoyed it. Thank you so much."

  • "My Husband and I went here for lunch today and it was great. We ate off the lunch menu and both really enjoyed our food. We had the Fisherman’s Basket and the Steak Sandwich. They were both fresh, well priced and cooked perfectly. The service was good, all staff were friendly. The restaurant itself was clean and well decorated. We will definitely be back again."

  • "Absolutely 100 per cent will be back to Riverside. Quality was 10 out of 10 and service was above and beyond. Cocktails impeccably presented as was the food, with the taste to match presentation. Had a slight mishap with our order, although was an easy fix for the staff on hand who resolved and dealt with the issue quite hastily I couldn't recommend or endorse this establishment highly enough. Get yourself to Riverside bar and dining for your next outing you will definitely have no regrets."

    John Poumako
  • "Riverside bar and dining is a perfect place for families to catch up on a Saturday evening. Beautiful ambience, extraordinary customer service, live amazing classical music was played by an artist and food was so delicious! Highly recommend it!"

    Jeena Johny
  • "Superb dining experience. I wanted to visit a few times before reviewing just to make sure the food and service was consistent. Sure enough, on all 3 occasions, I have been impressed with quality produce and friendly prompt service. Definitely need to make this your new local, give it a try and I'm sure you will agree."

    P Andrew
  • "First of all - Jess & Blake’s customer service was first class. Jess even went above and beyond and got us heating even after her shift was complete. During the evening the wait time for food felt like no time at all! Obviously, there was a small wait time with drinks, but cocktails on a weekend, that’s expected. All drinks were so yum! As was the meals. Albeit a bit pricey, but worth it for the great evening in my opinion. Thank you for a top night in a part of Penrith I often forget about."
