Rita’s Kitchen – A Balmain Restaurant That Locals Love

Rita’s Bar & Kitchen is the Cat & Fiddle’s exclusive in-house restaurant.

Today the spirit of Rita’s Bar & Kitchen continues to be inspired by this concept of creativity, while the menu brings to life the magical flavours of the cities of the Mediterranean and the seas that surround them. It is food for the soul, made with love in the Rita’s kitchen.

The dining style is based on the concept of sharing food with family and friends, with a free-flowing menu that moves away from the standard format of entrée, main and dessert and instead allows you to choose and experience your preference from each section of the menu. Even children are encouraged to get involved with the sharing philosophy and try something new. (However, there is a selection of children’s meals if required.)
