Bergerac Restaurant

Melbourne CBD

Marisa dined on Fri, 17th Nov 2017 (8)

We dined at Bergerac a few times, food is always good and the service is excellent.

Taxi Kitchen

Melbourne CBD

Marisa dined on Thu, 16th Nov 2017 (8)

The cured meat was nice but the crisp bread that served with was sprinkled with too much sea salt flakes. Beef brisket was tender, however the mustard cream cheese was presented like mashed potato, I put a spoonful in my mouth and have to spill it all out as it was too strong. Overall the meal was good but we noticed all the dishes we ordered have cucumber in it even for the cured meat, please note not everyone like cucumber.

Libertine Restaurant and Bar

Paddington

Marisa dined on Sun, 29th Oct 2017 (7)

We ordered 7 course shared banquet for $59 per head, very reasonable price and all the dishes were very generous but mostly were meat, too much for the two of us plus the table is too small to fit two or more dishes at the same time.

NEST Restaurant and Bar

Brisbane

Marisa dined on Sat, 28th Oct 2017 (8)

Nest is located on the second floor of Hotel Jen, right next to Roma Street Station. A great place to catch up with friends for lunch, yummy Asian fusion food and inexpensive. Staff are very attentive and friendly, will go back again and try their dinner menu next time.

Carmody's

Southport

Marisa dined on Thu, 17th Aug 2017 (8)

Thumbs up to the Wagyu Flank Steak, tasty and tender

Donto Sapporo

Broadbeach

Marisa dined on Sat, 5th Aug 2017 (8)

Love the Sapporo Bento, all good except for the sashimi that came with the set were very thin and tiny pieces

Glass Dining & Lounge Bar

Main Beach

Marisa dined on Sat, 22nd Apr 2017 (7)

Very busy and noisy on a Saturday night, overall is OK except the natural oysters were served in room temperature, didn't enjoy it at all.

BMD Northcliffe Surf Club

Surfers Paradise

Marisa dined on Sun, 2nd Apr 2017 (5)

We have ordered two of the April Special - Steak with Moreton Bay bug and the bug is the smallest one I had ever seen that served on the plate, not worth the price. The Fettuccine Carbonara is tasteless and my husband is not very happy with it. Overall not very enjoyable dinner except the Mars Bar Cake is to die for.

Portello Rosso

Melbourne CBD

Marisa dined on Tue, 21st Mar 2017 (8)

Cosy restaurant at the back lane, good service, yummy tapas...Would love to try their Paella but have to order minimum for 2 person which is quite expensive from $26-37 per person.

Seascape Restaurant + Bar

Surfers Paradise

Marisa dined on Sat, 18th Feb 2017 (7)

All the other dishes we ordered that night were good except for my seared tuna came out almost well done, it looked like tin tuna and tasted like one too. I have returned the dish to the kitchen and they were happy to make me a new one. They used to have seared tune in the broth which was really yummy, now this seared tuna dish only came with some pickle vegetables but no sauce, not very nice at all. It was my mistake as I only looked at the menu outside the restaurant which was the old menu, so when I ordered seared tuna I was expecting the one with broth, even their menu on their website was old one as well. They should change all their menu both outside their restaurant and website to the new menu to avoid any disappointment and confusion.

The Lazy Goose

Broadbeach

Marisa dined on Sat, 31st Dec 2016 (9)

Service is good and we love talking to the Head Chef Miki. Tiger prawn quinoa is my all time favourite and for entrée I highly recommended pork and foie gras terrine, thumbs up.

Sono Japanese City

Nero Dining

Marisa dined on Sat, 22nd Oct 2016 (8)

Unexpectedly good and generous portion. Jamon and burnt butter with home made bread are perfect match. Lamb is very tasty and tender.

Bambini Trust

Sydney CBD

Marisa dined on Sat, 15th Oct 2016 (8)

Cosy place which offering good food, our steak and veal are both cooked to perfection. Too full after 2 course meal, no room for dessert. Will surely come back again.

Carmody's

We really enjoyed our dinner except for the bird chirping part, otherwise food is awesome and service is good.

Rare Downtown (King St)

Melbourne CBD

Marisa dined on Fri, 5th Feb 2016 (7)

Thyme Gnocchi with truffled asparagus, broadbeans, gruyere and almond beurre noisette is my favorite dish, thumbs up

Hatch & Co Broadbeach

Broadbeach

Marisa dined on Mon, 25th Jan 2016 (7)

Found this newly opened restaurant in Broadbeach and thought we will give it a try for lunch. We shared the wood fired chicken wings as starter, it was just so so. For the mains, the wagyu skirt steak was very nice, cooked to perfection and my husband enjoyed his pasta with pork ragu too. Both desserts on the menu were very yummy and served in huge portions. The only thing that let us down was the service. Even though the staff were very attentive but our main courses were bought to our table while we were still eating our starter. Then asked us did we want some dessert while we were eating our main courses.

Customs House

Marisa dined on Sat, 5th Dec 2015 (8)

Very busy as usual, staff is very attentive and friendly. Entrée is yummy and my Wagyu Flank Steak is cooked to perfection, for dessert we shared a Salted Caramel Trio which is to die for, a very enjoyable meal.

La Camera Southgate

Southbank

Marisa dined on Sat, 28th Nov 2015 (7)

The Antipasti is very good especially the Parma Ham, my husband ordered crumbed veal as Secondi which was a bit too thick and tough, my Linguine Al Tartufo was lack of favour even I asked to put fresh chili in it.

Champagne Café.Restaurant.Bar

Broadbeach

Marisa dined on Sat, 7th Feb 2015 (8)

We have been dining in this restaurant a few times since it has changed their name from Champagne Brassiere to Café and the food is still keeping upto the standard as usual very fresh and tasty. I had tried the 3 course meal this time, yummy venison terrine, cooked to perfection salmon, to die for pear tart with ice cream and they are all very good, two thumbs up.

Food is as good as before even name has changed. The scallop entrée is fresh and tasty and the duck confit compressed with blue cheese is surprisingly yummy too. Blue spanner crab crepe is a must have dish, highly recommended.

Carmody's

Southport

Marisa dined on Sat, 11th Oct 2014 (7)

The 3 course set menu is worth to try, I had Alaskan scallops, Beef filet mignon & Sweet potato brulee which were all very yummy.

Bazaar Restaurant

Surfers Paradise

Marisa dined on Sun, 28th Sep 2014 (7)

All are good except for the Asian food, needs big improvement. Also, it would be helpful if there is a name tag for each dish and have soup bowls available for the soup. The made to order pizza is a must try, thumbs up.

Carmody's

Southport

Marisa dined on Wed, 27th Aug 2014 (7)

Steak is always good and cook to perfection but today's dessert is a bit weak. Prefer to come here for lunch as you can see the ground, feel the sunshine...very relaxing and less busier than dinner time plus very reasonable price for set lunch.

Pickled Cactus

Biggera Waters

Marisa dined on Sat, 9th Aug 2014 (6)

Staff is very attentive and the atmosphere is good, cosy little restaurant but the food is just not what we thought, it is a bit bland and have to put a lot of chili sauce to add favour.

Southport

Marisa dined on Wed, 18th Jun 2014 (8)

Four of us, selected different steak dishes from the lunch menu and it all served with free starter & dessert, what a great deal and most importantly all taste good, thumbs up. Prefer lunch rather than dinner cause you can see the ground, plus less busier than dinner time.

Carmody's

Southport

Marisa dined on Sat, 24th May 2014 (8)

Food is always good in Carmody's and Stacey the waitress was very attentive and helpful with a lovely smile on her face. The only one thing that I don't like is sometimes you can smell the food from their open kitchen especially when they are cooking salmon, I don't like fishy smell when I am eating.
