You’d be forgiven for thinking that you are in Portugal when you are in Petersham due to the number of authentic Portuguese restaurants.
Petersham’s original Portuguese restaurant
You may already be aware of the fact that Gloria’s Cafe and restaurant was actually the first Portuguese restaurant in Sydney and began it’s operation way back in 1988. Actually, if you believe in the Feng Shui of numbers, Gloria’s Cafe and Restaurant actually opened on the 8th of the 8th, 1988. Having said that, it’s not as a result of lucky numbers that Gloria’s has survived and thrived, as the service, serving sizes and range of menu is just amazing.
For the Petersham area, we are able to cater for up to 70 welcomed guests, serving around 40 inside, and on those warm summer and spring nights, you can enjoy around 30 seats outside. Having said that, during winter we do provide beautiful warm heaters for those still keen to be seated outside.
