We always love dining at Relish and we were impressed with last night's Autumn menu selections. My dining partner loved the skirt steak on smashed, roast potatoes, I really loved my delicate, silky pumpkin ravioli served with a delicious, stuffed zucchini flower and finished with a sprinkle of micro herbs. Yum!! Check it out!

Da Mario

Rosebery

Cheryl dined on Sun, 9th Apr 2017 (9)

Three of us shared a meal at Da Mario's the other night and really enjoyed it. We started with the antipasti platter, then had a couple of pizzas and a rocket & parmesan salad ... followed by a tiramisu with 3 spoons. Lovely casual dining space, great staff.

Fabulous menu choices - especially great value, with tasty entrees and mains, is the Sunset Menu. Loved the Atlantic Salmon on sticky black rice in a coconut bisque, delicious! The rest of the party loved their meals too. Great service, great food.

Loved our lunch last week. Such great value at $25 for two courses, from a list of delicious, quality choices. We shared the bruschetta, enjoyed the risotto with chicken and preserved lemon and shared the lavender Eton Mess for dessert. Fabulous, as always!

Otto Ristorante

Woolloomooloo

Cheryl dined on Sun, 25th Sep 2016 (10)

We lunched at Otto to celebrate a friend's birthday - none of us had eaten there before, but we'll all be back! Stunning, mouthwatering menu, fabulous service and the little chocolate cupcake with a lit candle at the completion of our main meal was a beautiful surprise for the birthday girl. Thanks Team Otto.

Babyface Kitchen

Wollongong

Cheryl dined on Sat, 17th Sep 2016 (9)

We celebrated a friend's birthday here and opted for the lunchtime degustation 'Feed Me' menu, which at $50 a head was excellent value. The restaurant offers selections from the Raw, Small, Large, Sides and Sweets sections of their fabulous Asian inspired menu and everything we tasted was absolutely delicious. We drank a jug of Pimms cocktails, beers and French champagne - as it was a celebration, and of course the alcohol consumption did increase the bill. However, you could pop in for a cheaper, casual a la carte meal or enjoy the chef's selection at lunch or dinner. Innovative and tasty!

Always love a visit to our favourite Shellharbour eatery. Last night there was the added treat of a creamy mushroom veloute served in tiny cups as an amuse bouche on arrival - perfect on a cold, rainy evening in winter. We also had the delicious Sydney Rick oysters from Merimbula. It's nice to visit a restaurant for favourite dishes, but also great to see seasonal specials on the menu. Another fabulous local dining experience.

One Penny Red

Summer Hill

Cheryl dined on Wed, 20th Apr 2016 (10)

When I'm visiting the Inner West, it's such a treat to dine at One Penny Red. Love everything about it, starting with the welcome at the front door. The fabulous service continues all night from the friendly, knowledgable staff who seem to love what they do. Of course, then there's the food ... the menu is full of fresh, beautifully executed dishes designed to share and available as starters, small and large plates. Sublime!

Another wonderful dining experience at Relish. We started with the oysters, tried the pork dish and the tasty ravioli which was finished with finger limes and samphire - delicious!

Shellharbour

Cheryl dined on Fri, 2nd Oct 2015 (10)

Four ladies catching up, one who'd never ever been to Relish. We tried the $22 lunch menu, which was amazing value. Great choices offered and same top quality food. We all loved our meals and shared entrees and desserts so we could have more taste sensations! We had a bottle of Chandon bubbles to toast our friendship. The lady who experienced Relish for the first time is planning to return, as we will continue to.

Wharf Rd. Restaurant & Bar

Nowra

Cheryl dined on Sat, 8th Aug 2015 (10)

Absolutely loved the location, the building design and space. The view was stunning. Menu was great, we chose the 5 course degustation and we were able to swap a course that didn't appeal to all members of our party, which was great. Just felt the service was a bit lacking the day we were there, seemed short-staffed. Everyone was nice and obliging when they were around, although just not quite slick enough. Also, a couple of our party remarked that we were not offered bread, although we could see some on a central serving table. Just a couple of niggly little things, maybe inexperienced staff? Anyway a delightful experience, shall be back.

Took a Sydney friend, who loves eating out regularly all over Sydney and he was very impressed with the menu, the quality of the produce and the meal presentation. A wonderful lunch with old and new friends.

Our first visit back this year (due to family illness). Wonderful to be welcomed back by Tom, the talented chef. Enjoyed the day's specials of snapper on beetroot barley risotto and braised beef cheeks. We'll be back soon.

One Penny Red

Summer Hill

Cheryl dined on Thu, 16th Apr 2015 (10)

We dined downstairs. Love the menu - starters, small and large plate choices mean a shared tasting experience for the table. The slow cooked lamb and crispy potatoes are a must!. Great wine list, plenty by the glass. Waiters are knowledgable and professional. A favourite when we visit our son in Sydney.

Great food and service as usual, a lovely Italian pinot grigio by the glass. Excellent place for lunch with the girls!

Caveau

Wollongong

Cheryl dined on Sat, 29th Jun 2013 (10)

We celebrated my husband's 60th with fine dining. Our son loved his first experience at Caveau, we had the seven course degustation menu, which served up some delicious seasonal tastes - all stunningly presented of course! Tried a new, staff-recommended French white wine which was superb and they happily poured a glass just for me. Looking forward to our next 'occasion' to celebrate at Caveau.

Caveau

Wollongong

Cheryl dined on Thu, 13th Dec 2012 (10)

The service was wonderful, so great to talk to well informed, knowledgable wait staff. The food, as always, was a delicious delight - from the presentation on the plates to the tiny, complimentary courses and the flavour of freshness in every mouthful of beautiful produce. Highly recommended to food lovers for a special meal.

Fish & Co

Annandale

Cheryl dined on Mon, 24th Sep 2012 (9)

Four of us had dinner at this tiny little fish cafe, we brought our own beer & wine. The two girls working the floor were informative, friendly and most obliging. We shared two entrees, each of us had a main course,we had a side of chips & aioli and finished off with 4 spoons in a large serve of gelato. One little gripe was the daily special of wild salmon - which was missing the advertised pearl couscous and came with just the regular grain. However, everything was fresh and delicious, I would highly recommend the Hanoi prawn cakes and cuttlefish for starters.

Great place for a lunchtime catch-up with the girls. A glass of bubbles and some tasty dishes enjoyed by seven of us. Enjoyed by our group were the beef cheeks, the lamb wellington, the shellfish pasta, the salmon tart and the crispy prawns and squid - all delicious. As we were off to a show, alas no time for desserts this visit.

Another wonderful meal at Relish! A lunch for 3 people - we all had mains & desserts with a couple of glasses of wine & mineral water. We had the daily specials which included beef cheeks on creamy mash, with fresh veg and homemade gnocchi with fresh prawns, baby tomatoes, pinenuts & marjoram. The desserts were sensational a citrus & passionfruit tart, a warm chocolate fondant & a saffron & vanilla bean creme brulee ... all scrumptious! Great service too.
