Venue Information

The Smoking Goat is a casual dining destination located on the water’s edge of the Parramatta River, serving a fusion of modern Australian and Greek recipes inside the Sydney Rowing Club in Abbotsford.

Greek food is best when it is shared, in a true family style. Executive Chef Paul Hamilton, along with Greek-born restauranteur Con Dedes (Dedes Group), have created a menu that focuses on value for money and highlights Australia’s fresh and most flavoursome produce; with inspiration taken from Con’s Greek family recipes.

The Smoking Goat brings to life those cultural beginnings and embodies the Dedes ethos of great food and hospitality shared with family and friends. The name is inspired by the chargrilling and smoking techniques featured prominently on the menu. Along with our lovable billy goat that also represents the Greek influence of the restaurant.

The Smoking Goat enjoys enviable water views and is an ideal location for a casual lunch or dinner. Whether you’re enjoying an intimate table for two or bringing together families and friends to enjoy birthdays or functions; The Smoking Goat is the place to celebrate.
