Mediterranean food and atmosphere..wait this is Australia
Vaby’s Mediterranean Grill in Penrith, NSW, Australia is a step out of the ordinary. There is Spanish, Portuguese, Greek, Italian and Aussie; a mix of about anything in seafood, pasta, steak, and chicken that you could dream of.
It is an atmosphere fit to compliment their food. There are tiled floors, wooden furniture, soft lighting – all a stained glass effect of Mediterranean greens and terra cotta colours. Seating is in different levels arranged throughout the establishment. The staff is absolutely the best for friendliness and hospitality. The dominating feature as you walk in the door is a long polished bar and glass back filled with alcohol, but don’t let that fool you if you have family it is very child focused for meals as well.
