Monica dined on Wed, 24th Jan 2018 (9)

The tables were way to close together and we were forced to listen to the conversations on either side of us as well as try to have our own

Eastside Kitchen + Bar


Monica dined on Mon, 15th Jan 2018 (9)

We were seated near the kitchen which was quieter than the rest of the restaurant but the staff kept bumping into our chairs as they rushed by with the food, perhaps more room could be made for them

Fratelli Fresh Potts Point

Potts Point

Monica dined on Mon, 25th Dec 2017 (8)

The 15% service charge on drinks as well as the set menu was a bit cheeky


Sydney CBD

Monica dined on Fri, 15th Dec 2017 (9)

Eastside Kitchen + Bar

Fantastic new restaurant at Barangaroo, we dined here & then took a quick taxi ride to the Ros packer theatre as the restaurants near the theatre aren't great. This is a much st welcome option.

Hotel Centennial

Such a great restaurant, always good to dine there!

The Tilbury Hotel


Monica dined on Wed, 18th May 2016 (4)

The starters were great, but I suppose it's not hard to open a tin of anchovies. However the mains were very ordinary. The snapper was dried out and the steak was flaccid and flavourless

Riley St Garage


Monica dined on Tue, 10th May 2016 (8)

The food could be better, it's not great value & needs to have more care in the preparation. It seems like everything is just heated through

Hungry Duck


Monica dined on Sat, 9th Nov 2013 (10)

The food was fantastic especially the duck 3 ways. The only draw back was the way the male diner seated behind us pushed his chair back so far that wait staff kept bumping into us to get past him.

Bronte Road Bistro

Great service and food, excellent venue and location. We dined outside and really enjoyed the lovely night air!

Bronte Road Bistro

Bishop Sessa

Wonderful food, quiet upstairs too and groovy background music :-)

Cipri Italian


Monica dined on Sun, 28th Jul 2013 (10)

Elizabeth Bay

Monica dined on Sat, 13th Jul 2013 (5)
