Barnaby's Riverside imaginative a-la-carte contemporary Australian cuisine or daily special blackboard provides excellent variety and value. The menu changes seasonally to take advantage of the freshest and highest quality ingredients.
A special Sydney experience is to get the Rivercat from Circular Quay upriver, explore Colonial Parramatta, our earlier centre of Government, and then lunch on the deck at Barnaby's overlooking the park and river. Barnaby's is perfect for celebrating a Wedding, Birthday, Christmas Party or Retirement function. Live music and dancing every evening.
The rustic old colonial building in which Barnaby's Riverside is now housed, first came to fame during the early part of the nineteenth century as the hiding place of the infamous Barnaby Templeton - the first prisoner to have escaped from Parramatta Prison. Restored and rebuilt by Michael Fischer in 1976, Barnaby's Riverside, Parramatta, now enjoys a reputation based more on its modern Australian cuisine than its somewhat colourful past. Step into Barnaby's Riverside and you step into a great chapter of Australian History.
