Booth Street Bistro


Shirley dined on Fri, 28th Jul 2017 (9)

Been coming to BSB for years - food and service are very consistent, however the menu hasn't changed in a couple of years. Still enjoy the food, however have stopped coming as often as we would like as menu choice is limited.

Capriccio Osteria


Shirley dined on Sat, 22nd Jul 2017 (6)

We were a little disappointed by our return visit The pasta (lamb ragu) came out cold and bland and the lamb ribs seemed to be on the smaller side for the price of a main. Staff are lovely though we felt attentiveness at our table trailed as and the night got more busy.

Darling Street Diner


Shirley dined on Sat, 19th Jul 2014 (9)

Menu has changed since the last time we were here- the tapas style menu worked so my better to sample more dishes on the menu! Food was still yummy but with a limited menu we picked the only meat sharing plate and it was sold out :( Dessert was yummy and service was excellent! Good value with entertainment card.

Shirley dined on Sun, 22nd Jun 2014 (7)

We had high expectations but was slightly disappointed within seconds of being sat down at our table. The waiter had not bothered to wipe the menu when it was apparent wine had dropped onto it and had not been attentive when this was spotted. Menu was good with a variety of choices but for some reason our meals came out extremely slow- the table next to us was served their three course meal and paid even before our mains came and we ordered at the same time! Our mains came out cold. Very very disappointing when paying $35-40 for our main meal. When asked if we wanted to take it back to the kitchen for it to be reheated within a minute we politely declined, nothing could be worse than having fish and pasta microwaved reheated. Flavour of the food was good but just thought everything had just been slightly disappointing and wished we hadn't picked this for our anniversary lunch.

The afternoon tea was absolutely one of the most substantial portions I have seen in Sydney and the food is delicious! The sweet canapés are to die for- will definitely be back to try the vodka cocktails!
