We went for afternoon lunch and the food was really good. I had the braised beef cheek with angel hair pasta and my partner had the salmon and also the broccoli with almonds and everything was very satisfactory. I would definitely recommend this one.

About The Riverview Hotel

When you walk into ‘The Riv’, as it’s known by locals, it’s not hard to see why this much-loved little gem was awarded Best Casual Dining venue for 2015, finalist in the prestigious AHA Awards for Excellence 2016, 2017 and award Two Hats by Gault & Millau 2015, 2016, 2017. As they say, first impressions are everything, and the staff at Riverview win diners over with a genuinely warm welcome upon entry. Executive chef, Aaron Kingdom, dishes out modern European meals, proudly served by friendly, attentive and enthusiastic staff, amongst olive green walls and naked, dark-brown tabletops, in a room full of private little nooks and crannys, making it a perfect venue for a first date, date night, or any other intimate occasion. Kingdom's no-nonsense approach to food has drawn a favourable response from locals of the inner west and visitors alike. Tucked in the tree-lined back streets of Balmain, this local watering hole has become an institution on the Sydney pub scene, and is most definitely one to tick off your dining list.
