What a shame - I went for the swordfish as I've been cooking it lately at home and it's been incredibly juicy and melting in your mount BUT NOT FOR THIS ESTABLISHMENT..!! for $28 their $4 piece of fish was laughable Over cooked and dry - I can't believe they even served it to me, looking back now I should have taken a photo On the flip side, oysters were lovely and so was the tiramisu

Henry and the Fox

Melbourne CBD

shaun dined on Sat, 22nd Jul 2017 (5)

Great service - that's about all I could tell you that was positive The restaurant was not really warm or inviting - It must be so cold in the kitchen too !! Advice to kitchen staff - WARM UP THE PLATES BEFORE SERVING!!!!! The steak was an absolute rip off - if it wasn't for the DIMMI 50% discount it would have been sent back - the stone plates absorbed all of the heat from the food Would not recommend or ever come back - no matter what the discount was

TGI Fridays - Doncaster

Doncaster

shaun dined on Sat, 27th May 2017 (4)

What a shame..! We spent a small forune compared with the quality of food and service Ordered entre and I lumo e came out _ 20 mins later after asking the nachos came out only to be sent back .. Nachos with no layering of the cheese - just clumped on the top with really poor version of salsa - there must have only been apprentices In The kitchen - sent back once and there was no use sending it back the second time Wil NEver com back that's for sure.... Glass of coke that was splintered around the rim of the glass, cutting my friends lip- they don't even offer a deduction from the bill or complementary anything 3 x orders of Ribs that were dry and small portioned for the $42 price tag..... better off going to the local pizza shop in officer Rice salad - rice was half cooked Corn that was cold

The Hof Downtown

Docklands

shaun dined on Mon, 3rd Oct 2016 (5)

NOTHING LIKE GERMANY !!! it is however an expensive beer drinkers paradise.. Food was ok, nothing special for the price.... They obviously have allot of rent to pay being in docklands !!!!! I've spent $30-40 and been blown away with food quality in the past from other venues, this is the 2nd time I have been here... nothing has changed!! They must intend on people drinking heavily to hide the food flavors - or lack of it... the fish seemed old and "floury" - unless i wanted to drink lots of beer... not sure if i would ever go back again...... such a shame as the houses in Germany are fantastic and full of flavour AND hospitality

Chimes Indian Restaurant

Mimi's Restaurant

Camberwell

shaun dined on Tue, 31st May 2016 (6)

I've been here several times before and I'm not sure if I will go back as the quality seemed to have slipped a lot The Parma was very very average for $29 and the pizza was quite small for the $24 price tag

The Hof Downtown

Docklands

shaun dined on Fri, 20th May 2016 (5)

Their bread dumpling for $7.50 was a joke - nothing like traditional flavour or texture Gravy was runny and salty Snitchzel was lovely but cold mash isn't my thing

Queenies

What an incredible Experience..!! GO - everyone must go here once in their life.... if you like pork or chicken that melts into your fork --GO..!! Very service oriented staff, helpful and efficient, this place has it down to a fine art. Great food, corn that will amaze and port ribs that fall off the bone, great music and an audible atmosphere I will be going back again before heading home to Melbourne 🤓

La Repubblica on Balmoral Beach

Mosman

shaun dined on Thu, 5th May 2016 (1)

We were greeted openly, promptly taken to our chosen table and that's where it ended for me. The guy serving was polite and cheerful but very pushy for us to order after sitting down for only 3 minutes. I wouldn't recommend the lamb salad as they over cooked the meat and somehow the salad was dry even with the dressing. The ham omelette was made rubbery somehow and heavily salted, considering the waiter knew it was for my 2 year old son NOT IMPRESSED AT ALL. My wife's marinara was ok, nothing special, maybe it was a bad day for us and they were not very organised but considering the price, location and views I would have thought there would be attention to detail.. Good luck guys, this is one place I will be telling others not to go if heading to beautiful Balmoral

The Strand Restaurant

Williamstown

shaun dined on Sun, 24th Apr 2016 (6)

Medium rare steak came out medium well so they totally destroyed a great steak, the spatchcock was lovely, the marinara was below average and lamb rack was ok.., maybe they do so well due to the location , nice views, wouldn't return in a hurry

Wild Oak

Olinda

shaun dined on Sat, 26th Mar 2016 (4)

The Bread was fantastic and that's where it ended for us unfortunately Very overpriced meals for the size and quality comparing to city restaurants and especially deserts -- $19 for a small 1/2 portion of sticky date a $260 bill after 2 entertainment cards were deducted I'll never come back again, such a pity for a venue with such good close by attractions and

Chimes Indian Restaurant

Balwyn

shaun dined on Fri, 25th Mar 2016 (7)

Food was ok and service was good. Nothing over the top - "tender beef" wasn't really tender and butter chicken seemed to be missing the "butter" Maybe this time they had a different cook or preparation method

Moti Mahal

Malvern

shaun dined on Mon, 14th Mar 2016 (8)

Good food and fast:promt service with no personality- probably because they were so busy and typical of Indian restaurateurs We Will Go back another day to compare as the food was good

Riversdale Hotel

Hawthorn

shaun dined on Sun, 13th Mar 2016 (0)

Really deceitful, I asked if the T-bone had a fillet attached, they assured me there was then gave me a chewy off cut with no "T-bone " and no fillet my partner had the worst old reheated beef curry every given and to top it all off the kids calamari wasn't even calamari - it was some sort of regurgitated flavoured glop looking like calamari $7 for this and they can't even provide the real seafood - what a rip off.! Now I know why you have to pre pay before receiving your meal. I would never return to this place that's for certain..!!! what an absolute shame and a waste of hard earned money..!!!

Renzo's Bar Cafe Italiano

Docklands

shaun dined on Thu, 26th Nov 2015 (7)

Used a voucher from Groupon - organic pasta was bland with no flavour, pizza was ok, only worth the money if using a voucher is my feeling

Sapore

St Kilda

shaun dined on Sat, 14th Nov 2015 (6)

I've been a few time before but they really dropped the ball - $42 steak was about 15 quality - seafood was exquisite - bread rolls we good Don't think I'd ever buy steak here again though - such a shame the 1/3 of the eye fillet had clump of fatty chewy bits

Steer Dining Room

South Yarra

shaun dined on Sat, 22nd Feb 2014 (9)

Great steak, and incredible lemon merang dessert but I felt the meat price tag was way overvalued, a 250gm scotch fillet is $95 and there was nothing REALLY special about experience of eating my first Wagu cut. I have had better $50 steaks at IlSolito Posto and deliccious full flavored ones at Richmond Oyster Bar. I have to admit there was nothing I could fault about the venue or the service but you need to go with an "open wallet"

La Citta

Melbourne CBD

shaun dined on Wed, 19th Feb 2014 (8)

Ordered T-bone medium rare, it can out medium and chewy, I have eaten here before and quality was much better, flavours were fantastic but quality really let them down. ANY $40 steak should melt in your mouth, told the waiter, no complimentary anything or explanation which was I bit upsetting.... Good luck, I will probably eat elsewhere now.

World Restaurant & Bar

Authentic Italian waiters who sometimes mix up the orders then you are stuck with eating your main without your partner, make sure they are 100% clear on your order before they leave your table...... Excellent food and service though

Insieme Restaurant & Bar

South Yarra

shaun dined on Sat, 15th Dec 2012 (6)

I asked for a window seat at the front downstairs but was given an upstairs back end location without being informed when they called to confirm my booking. Food was Ok compared to last time i was there, The online menu is not was it on offer, the steak was stringy and a little chewy (but i am a fillet person, they only had porterhouse on offer), gnocchi was lovely, cocktails @ $14 seemed watered down, will not return in a hurry !!

Great service, thought the food was ok, lots of bread with no meat if buying the steak sandwich, like most places, they fill you up on bread and chips but you get no “real food"... will go again to try something else.. nice staff... its great to see i must admit
