Merv's Latest reviews: Merv's Top 10 restaurants:

Cafe Lyon


Merv dined on Thu, 11th Oct 2018 (10)

Always good to visit Cafe Lyon. Good range of selection on a sensible short menu. Food and wine not too expensive

Brasserie l'Entrecote


Merv dined on Wed, 8th Aug 2018 (7)

Thought the food was not as good as on previous visits. The specialty steak was a bit dry and unexciting for a $40.00 steak meal. The Chardonnay also lacked character although ok for the good price of $10 for a 150 ml glass. Will return but not soon

Manta Restaurant & Bar


Merv dined on Wed, 11th Apr 2018 (8)

Always a great view. Food and wine ok value and service good. A restaurant for a special occasion or visiting friends


Sydney CBD

Merv dined on Thu, 22nd Mar 2018 (8)

Good food and nice atmosphere. A Sydney institution that you should visit. Great memories from the photo galery


Avoca Beach

Merv dined on Sat, 23rd Dec 2017 (9)

Service was excellent and the pasta delicious



Merv dined on Wed, 24th May 2017 (9)

Have not been to Balthazar for a long time. Food delicious. Wine selection assisted by Emma who was very knowledgeable. Would recommend to anyone who was looking for a fine dining occasion.

Cafe Lyon


Merv dined on Wed, 3rd May 2017 (9)

Never disappointed, Food is always tasty and the service good. Appreciate mid week BYO and nice atmosphere.

Urban Tadka

Terrey Hills

Merv dined on Wed, 15th Feb 2017 (9)

Good vibe in the restaurant, Best Indian food around. Price is reasonable given the general high standard of the restaurant and the service is good.

Sails on Lavender Bay

Mcmahons Point

Merv dined on Wed, 28th Sep 2016 (7)

Getting expensive and food has become " minimalist" rather than quality affordable lunch fare.

Martha's Restaurant


Merv dined on Mon, 30th May 2016 (9)

We celebrate friends birthdays at Martha's and its always an enjoyable lunch with great service. Have been celebrating at Martha's for several years now and will be back again for the next birthday.

The Deck Sydney

Milsons Point

Merv dined on Wed, 9th Mar 2016 (8)

Great view, lively atmosphere with live music although a bit loud. Why do you not sell Australian sparkling water. Why do we have to buy imported Italian in this Eco world.

Fort Denison

Sydney CBD

Merv dined on Thu, 3rd Mar 2016 (9)

Great view. A tourist must. Why do I not get a choice of Australian sparking water and am forced to buy imported Italian water at an Australian historic venue

Hux Grill


Merv dined on Tue, 9th Feb 2016 (9)

Food was excellently presented and both the fish and chips and steak were top quality. The only let down was the coffee that had no flavour and could have been presented with a biscotti or chocolate.

Spectacular day and a beautiful setting the food was very good and the service was excellent

Sushia Izakaya Perth

A Busy Friday night with lots of noise and buzz. Initial service for drinks and food was slow but the Restaurant was full so understandable. Once orders were placed service was very good.

Otto Sydney


Merv dined on Tue, 17th Nov 2015 (8)

We were concerned about the number of poor reviews on Otto prior to our lunch. However the service was excellent and the food and wine very good. We had a very pleasant lunch on a beautiful sunny Sydney day.

Swine & Co.

Sydney CBD

Merv dined on Tue, 24th Feb 2015 (5)

Chips were cold and a bid stodgy Pork was ok but a bit overcooked and lacked finesse

Aubergine Restaurant


Merv dined on Wed, 15th Jan 2014 (4)

Good food guide 2014 indiceted you could BYO $15pb. Told no BYO and when pressed said OK for $30 pb. Half bottle came in a pre poured carafe. A half empty bottle was also presented. A full bottle would have been opened at the table so if my half bottle was to be poured from a fullbottle why was that not opened at the table. I could have been presented with any wine!!
