Cannibal Creek Vineyard

Tynong

phillip dined on Thu, 13th Jul 2017 (8)

Dansk never disappoints, highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our first visit to Massi. The only negative is the acoustics but this is far outweighed by the food, wine and outstanding service.

Denmark House

Melbourne CBD

phillip dined on Fri, 26th May 2017 (10)

Dansk is one of Melbourne's best kept secrets. We have enjoyed lunch on many occasions but the the 5 course dinner was amazing! So glad we also chose the matched wines, which were perfect for every course.

The Panama Dining Room

Fitzroy

phillip dined on Thu, 11th May 2017 (8)

Casual, relaxed, fun venue with good vegetarian options.

Philippe

Melbourne CBD

phillip dined on Sat, 29th Apr 2017 (10)

We were so looking forward to dinner at Philippe and arrived with very high expectations which can sometimes lead to a let down, on this occasion we could not have been more impressed. Philippe ticks all the boxes and if there were more to tick they would be included as well. A lovely space, outstanding service and exceptional food and wine. Bravo!

Seamstress Restaurant

Melbourne CBD

Seamstress consistently ticks all the boxes, quality food, wine, value and service.

Cannibal Creek Vineyard

My first visit to Cannibal Creek Winery but well worth trip to Gippsland for excellent food wine and service.

Caffe E Cucina

Caffe e Cucina never disappoints, consistently good food and faultless service

Denmark House

Melbourne CBD

phillip dined on Fri, 3rd Mar 2017 (10)

Don't know why we took so long to return to Dansk. The decor is so clean and fresh as is the food, and the service is always faultless. For lunch that is different to all the "run of the mill" venues this is the place to go.

Paringa Estate Winery & Restaurant

Red Hill South

phillip dined on Wed, 25th Jan 2017 (10)

another fabulous meal at paringa estate, constantly evolving menu, using beautiful ingredients, will return

Bottega

Melbourne CBD

phillip dined on Fri, 23rd Sep 2016 (10)

A return visit to Bottega didn't disappoint, wide menu selection, something to suit all, exemplary service, 2 course special of $ 55 per person great value, a wine list that sports a Mac Forbes Pinot , what else could one ask for.

Luxembourg

St Kilda

phillip dined on Sat, 3rd Sep 2016 (5)

Did not live up to expectations mainly due to the poor service. Plenty of wait staff but not quite sure what they were doing, maybe they didn't know either!

The Stanley Pub

Stanley

phillip dined on Fri, 26th Aug 2016 (7)

My partner dined at Dansk for the first time this week. We will definitely be back, beautiful fresh food and outstanding service.

Noosa Beach House Peter Kuruvita

Noosa Heads

phillip dined on Sat, 28th Nov 2015 (9)

My wife and I had a wonderful lunch here on our recent Noosa holiday, we ate at many restaurants during our 2 week stay and this would have been one of the best. Service friendly and attentive, food fresh and inventive, utilizing locally sourced ingredients. Would not hesitate to return. We also ate numerous times in the casual section of the restaurant, again enjoying wonderful service and good quality food and wine.

The Cups Estate

Fingal

phillip dined on Sat, 31st Oct 2015 (8)

This was our first visit to The Cups Estate. On first impressions the venue seems to be a noisy wine tasting room with the dining added on. That's all the negatives, but they are outweighed by all the positives. We enjoyed 4 tapas dishes as well as salad and sour dough bread. The food was faultless, as was the friendly service. The Estate wine was delightful and if there is winery on the Peninsula that matches their prices we are yet to find it. We will definitely be back.

The Royal Hotel Mornington

Mornington

phillip dined on Fri, 23rd Oct 2015 (9)

booked a large table for a work function, the grand were happy to accommodate individual menu requests and wine by the glass, which avoided the awkward paying of a large bill at the end of the night, took the stress out of the evening for me as i had booked it. Could not fault food or wine, all enjoyed will be back

Paringa Estate Winery & Restaurant

Red Hill South

phillip dined on Wed, 7th Oct 2015 (10)

Had a fabulous meal here today with my two adult children, enjoyed the set price meal of two courses and a glass of wine, three types of dinner rolls were offered, and both the entree and mains were outstanding, lovely combinations of flavours. Wines also were delicious, and a very friendly and well informed wine tasting followed, will revisit. merci

Bottega

Melbourne CBD

phillip dined on Sat, 26th Sep 2015 (9)

Bottega maintains a consistent high standard for food and service. Fixed price lunch is always good value.

Polperro Bistro

Red Hill

phillip dined on Thu, 3rd Sep 2015 (10)

The food and service at Polperro is first class as is the view. Lunch menu is great value.

Polperro Bistro

Red Hill

phillip dined on Sun, 16th Aug 2015 (9)

My partner and I dined at Polperro on a busy Sunday afternoon, very busy and a bit noisy but could not fault the quality of food and service. Our quail entrée was outstanding followed by a fish and gnocchi main course which were very high quality. As with most peninsula venues the meals are not cheap. We have eaten here in the past when the venue was known as "The Vines", the space is now refreshed and with the number of patrons lining up for a table it seems to have a new lease of life. Bravo

Seamstress Restaurant

Melbourne CBD

phillip dined on Tue, 25th Nov 2014 (9)

another fabulous night at seamstress, nothing to fault, staff welcoming, food delicious, will be back

Bottega

Melbourne CBD

phillip dined on Wed, 1st Oct 2014 (10)

Fabulous food, good service, will return

Provenance (Beechworth)

Beechworth

phillip dined on Sun, 20th Jul 2014 (10)

Japanese influence food, passionate chef, very welcoming environment

Garden Restaurant

Melbourne CBD

phillip dined on Sat, 16th Mar 2013 (10)

Persimmon never disappoints. I only have one complaint about this restaurant, it was closed over the Xmas new year period and I couldn't enjoy one of their beautiful lunches. Not sure who the chef is but he is a true genius. Unlike most Melbourne restaurants, Persimmon's fixed priced lunch is also available weekends. The $40 lunch menu cannot be matched anywhere in Melbourne!

Garden Restaurant

Melbourne CBD

phillip dined on Wed, 6th Feb 2013 (9)

Persimmon always provides the highest standard of food and service. The only minor criticism would be that main courses are at times on the small side. Beautiful venue and ideal for lunch on a hot Melbourne day.

Wayside Inn

South Melbourne

phillip dined on Fri, 1st Feb 2013 (10)

I dined here for the first time today. The Wayside Inn will definitely be on my list for a return visit. The food is restaurant prices but will give most restaurants a run for their money with the fare on offer. The rotisserie pork today was outstanding and the service exemplary. Can't wait to return and work through the rest of the menu.

The Royal Hotel Mornington

Mornington

phillip dined on Thu, 31st Jan 2013 (7)

New managers have done a great job with the reno. The main course options are limited, and The Royal is not a place to go for "modest" meals at "modest" prices. Maybe the menu should more reflect the season and the bayside location. Service is outstanding and the young staff are very professional. Would I go back? Yes!
