The Greens

Pat dined on Tue, 22nd Sep 2015 (8)

I have visited Greens several times and always enjoyed it. The service is excellent and the menu interesting. The grilled asparagus is a good entree and the fish and chips a reliable main course. Today I tried the lamb neck which had good flavour but could have been served a bit hotter. The Greens welcomes families and has plenty of room for prams, high chairs etc. A really good place.

WAQU

Barangaroo

Pat dined on Tue, 29th Apr 2014 (8)

The food in the tapas (casual) part of the restaurant was very good but the portions were small and the price soon escalated. Strange that this side is not BYO but the Fine Dining side is. The corkage charge is high but if you are drinking good wine it is still worth it.

Chefs Gallery Townhall

Sydney CBD

Pat dined on Tue, 13th Aug 2013 (8)

As always the food was good and the service pleasant and responsive - except the wine orders. We had to ask twice for our bottle of red and then when we ordered a single glass of white for the non red drinker it just did not arrive.Eventually the waitress told us that it had not been ordered. They were quick to fix but this is unusually for this establishment. Hope this will not continue.
