About Rita's Bar and Kitchen

In an ode to its own visionary origins, Rita’s Bar & Kitchen on Darling Street in Balmain delivers an innovative and continually evolving approach to hotel dining. Located in the historic brick, two-storey Cat & Fiddle Hotel, which has been refurbished into one of Sydney’s premium gastro pubs, Rita’s exudes a calming vibe of green and white with trailing greenery, arched windows and mosaic-tiled tables. Jump right in with Greek-style BBQ octopus, oregano and lemon before twirling your fork around fresh egg spaghetti with crab, arrabbiata sauce, garlic, basil and blistered tomatoes. Perhaps slice your knife into pub cuts like T-bone with peppercorn sauce, mash and steamed vegetables, or pick up a slice of Pork Star pizza – pulled pork, nduja, maple bacon, smoked mozzarella and bacon jam.

Very very special - menu is different and reasonable prices. Friendly staff - and decor is beautiful - should be classified as a fine dining experience!
