I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

Something for everyone
The Emporium Parramatta is a bar, bistro and restaurant that offers three menus brunch, lunch/dinner & bar) in three dining areas; the outdoor courtyard, inside and the inside/outside lane way.

The outdoor Erby Place courtyard is a great place for weekend dining. Under the shade canopy the small tables are set with fresh flowers and make for a relaxed setting.

Arriving at midday, one has the option of choosing from the brunch and/or the lunch menu. There are many options to choose from and all sound delicious with interesting flavour combinations. Our meals were delicious and beautifully presented but the servings would be too small for dinner. The cured King salmon had a fresh tang of citrus that was complemented by the dill yoghurt and toasted sourdough.

Lamb, lunch, courtyard

The service was a bit haphazard and I would not like to dine when it was busy as we were forgotten on a quiet day. It is a large restaurant and could become very noisy as the indoor space is a very large and open with hard tiled floors. Strangely the access to the unisex toilets is upstairs via a 'Staff Only' door. On the positive side there is plenty of paid parking adjacent.

The Emporium offers daily specials and live music on selected evenings, as well as a few different function menus for group bookings.
