INES Wine Bar

Windsor

Melissa dined on Thu, 9th Aug 2018 (9)

The experience at Ines was wonderful! The food was superb. I ordered the prawn pasta which I definitely recommend! The ambiance added to the experience. It would be great if there were added options of small dishes to the menu.

Morris Jones

Windsor

Melissa dined on Sat, 9th Jun 2018 (7)

I wasn’t wildly impressed with the food or the selection. There are very few vegan options or vegetarian choices. The experience was a little disappointing.

Osteria Ilaria

Melbourne CBD

Melissa dined on Sat, 2nd Jun 2018 (9)

The food and service at Osteria Ilaria is always superb! I’ve been here 4 times now and I look forward to returning! The Morton Bay Bug seafood pasta special was delicious! Missing the zucchini flowers, but as always the calamari was a hit!

Caffe E Cucina

South Yarra

Melissa dined on Sun, 27th May 2018 (9)

It’s always a pleasure to dine here! Always an absolute treat!😀

Yagiz

South Yarra

Melissa dined on Sat, 19th May 2018 (9)

The ambiance was great on a Saturday night and the service excellent! The brussel sprouts were delicious and so was dessert. The dumplings were underwhelming. I’m looking forward to returning to try the fish.

Rock Sugar

South Yarra

Melissa dined on Sat, 5th May 2018 (7)

The food was quite tasty. The cocktail list was extensive; however, there was quite a limited wine list. There are great options for vegans, vegetarians and pescatarians.

Shadowboxer Bar & Kitchen

South Yarra

Melissa dined on Sat, 7th Apr 2018 (8)

A great neighbourhood restaurant with a relaxed ambiance. The food was good and wine list was very basic. I’ll definitely return as it’s a great new local.

Caffe E Cucina

South Yarra

Melissa dined on Fri, 26th Jan 2018 (9)

Wonderful pasta special of salmon, zucchini and saffron! The wait staff are friendly and obliging. The barramundi was superb. This is a definite neighbourhood gem!

A La Bouffe Bar & Bistro

South Yarra

Melissa dined on Thu, 27th Jul 2017 (10)

The food and service are always a treat! I particularly like the seafood options available. Can't wait to return!

Saigon Sally

Windsor

Melissa dined on Sat, 27th May 2017 (9)

It is ALWAYS an absolute treat and pleasure to dine at Saigon Sally. The food and flavours are fresh and intriguing. I had the Barramundi which was absolutely delicious. We were in a group of 8 and we were allowed to pay separately - an added bonus! I will definitely return very soon!

Hawker Hall

Windsor

Melissa dined on Tue, 11th Apr 2017 (8)

As a carb conscious eater, I found the menu very restrictive for a pescatarian. I had the BBQ squid(rubbery!!!). Perhaps next time I'll order differently. A wonderful atmosphere though!!

Caffe E Cucina

South Yarra

Melissa dined on Sat, 21st Jan 2017 (9)

The ambience at Cafe e Cucina is always so authenticity Italian. Our waiter suggested and excellent bottle of Pino. The entree of calamari was cooked to perfection and the kingfish was accompanied with pomegranate and was also delicious. The pasta was superb. A true neighbourhood gem.

The Panama Dining Room

Fitzroy

Melissa dined on Wed, 28th Dec 2016 (8)

The food and dining experience at Panama was a real treat. The barramundi was delicious; however, I was missing some lemon as the garlic paste was not my favourite. The kingfish was superb, but very expensive. I thought the pumpkin salad and the homus dip were delicious. Overall, a really great night out. The experience was, however, very expensive for the quality and quantity of food.

Fiorelli Restaurant

Hawthorn East

Melissa dined on Sun, 18th Dec 2016 (8)

The food was really delicious! The seafood pasta was a real delight with plenty of seafood and not just all pasta. The lemon tart was an exquisite way to finish our lunch. Next time I'll order the sticky date dessert as that looked delicious. I will definitely be back.

Agapi

Richmond

Melissa dined on Sat, 10th Dec 2016 (9)

Our night out at Agapi was a very enjoyable experience and we found ourselves re-booking another evening before we had ordered dessert. The food was so enjoyable and the atmosphere was authentically Greek. We ordered the octopus (delicious) and adored the wonderful fish selections. We will definitely return!!!

A La Bouffe Bar & Bistro

South Yarra

Melissa dined on Sun, 20th Nov 2016 (9)

The experience and food at A La Bouffe was divine! Wonderful authentic French cuisine with excellent service was such a treat. The menu offered a wide range of choices and I will definitely return!

Caffe E Cucina

South Yarra

Melissa dined on Thu, 13th Oct 2016 (8)

The atmosphere and food are always nice here. Our table was not ready when we arrived and while we waited we received a sparkling complimentary. This was a nice touch. The homemade pasta dish was really appetizing. We ordered the scallop risotto. I love scallops, but these were disappointing. I counted 5 tiny ones. I was expecting more. I will be back though as I do love that pasta!

Saigon Sally

Windsor

Melissa dined on Wed, 28th Sep 2016 (9)

I am always so impressed with the food and ambience at Saigon Sally - always a treat! The highlight was the ocean trout with the abundance of fresh herbs to accompany the dish. I will return for this dish which was cooked to perfection and definitely not overdone. I had the cauliflower entree and the flavour of it was sublime! I love Saigon Sally!

Papa Goose

Melbourne CBD

Melissa dined on Sat, 24th Sep 2016 (9)

The food was exceptional and service was excellent. The cauliflower main was quite expensive for what it was although delicious. I really enjoyed the main fish dish and the dessert was sublime.

Sono Japanese City

Brisbane CBD

Melissa dined on Sat, 10th Sep 2016 (6)

Sono was a pleasant dining experience. The food was good, although the tempura batter was a little thick and not as tasty as I was hoping. The sashimi and sushi was quite good. I was expecting more of a 'wow' as it did come with some fabulous reviews. The decor is a bit dated. I did like the waitresses in kimonos which added to the ambience.

A25 Espresso (CBD)

Melbourne CBD

Melissa dined on Tue, 30th Aug 2016 (8)

The food and service were very good. There is a good variety of pizza choices and the chef was prepared to adapt the recipe. This spot is always busy and I'll definitely return for the squid ink pizza.

Papa Goose

Melbourne CBD

Melissa dined on Sun, 14th Aug 2016 (9)

The service and ambience were excellent! The food at Papa Goose was of a very high standard. Warm freshly cooked bread and a pumpkin coconut soup courtesy of the chef was just the start. We very much enjoyed the fish stew and smoked scallops as a highlight. I will definitely return!

Caffe E Cucina

South Yarra

Melissa dined on Wed, 10th Aug 2016 (9)

I always enjoy the specials and the variety of fish dishes which is special about this restaurant. The ambience is fabulous and truly feels authentically Italian. The barramundi special was delicious and the special pasta dish with tomatoes and pureed peas was al dente and truly delicious. I feel the selection of wine by the glass could be more varied. The wait staff seem exhausted and a forced kind of friendly; however, they are truly efficient and helpful. I definitely look forward to dining at Cafe E Cucina again.

Caffe E Cucina

South Yarra

Melissa dined on Thu, 21st Jul 2016 (9)

The food and atmosphere were wonderful. The scallops and fish of the day dish was superb. The authentic Italian atmosphere is most pleasing. I will definitely return.

Fatto

Melbourne CBD

Melissa dined on Sat, 11th Jun 2016 (7)

The atmosphere was wonderful. I had been to Fatto before and was slightly disappointed. The food was good, but I had to return a pumpkin dish as it was almost frozen. The bread wasn't as delicious as the time before. Perhaps just an off night.

Script Bar & Bistro

Southbank

Melissa dined on Sat, 4th Jun 2016 (7)

The restaurant is a little out of the way if you need a quick dinner after a show. The food is quite good, nice atmosphere.

Cafe Republic

Sezar Restaurant

The food was just exquisite. The blends of flavours and quality was just perfect. Our fish was cooked to perfection and the scallop dish was superb. I will definitely return.

Bacash Restaurant

South Yarra

Melissa dined on Mon, 14th Dec 2015 (8)

The food was of the highest quality and it is really quite rare to find such a high quality seafood restaurant. I enjoyed the entree and main. For someone who is not fond of chips it is disappointing that the only option of accompanying food is this and a simple salad. I would prefer more options for the accompanying food and just fish for the main is a little disappointing considering the price.

Society Restaurant & Bar

Melbourne CBD

Melissa dined on Tue, 9th Jun 2015 (8)

The food was presented beautifully and the quality was superb. I will return for the desserts and the special fish dish was delicious.

Seamstress Restaurant

Excellent way to commence the weekend. Delicious curry and roti with peanut lemongrass.

Chez Olivier - Le Bistro

Prahran

Melissa dined on Sun, 4th May 2014 (9)

Chez Olivier was a wonderful taste of France in Greville St. The food was of an exceptional quality and the ambiance was authentically French.
