Salt Meats Cheese- Circular Quay

Circular Quay

Clare dined on Tue, 21st Nov 2017 (8)

Fantastic Service from our Italian Waitress Cara. Lovely food especially the meatballs they were so tasty. The only let down is the extremely expensive wine list!

Trovata

Sydney CBD

Clare dined on Wed, 15th Nov 2017 (8)

Excellent Friendly and fast Service. The portions of pasta were extremely generous so happy we were sharing. A must is their home made Tiramisu it is so light and fluffy but again remember to share the serving is huge.

Zushi Darlinghurst

Darlinghurst

Clare dined on Mon, 23rd Oct 2017 (9)

Great fresh food at Zushi Darlinghurst always quick and friendly service. Also BYO Wine which is great. Highly recommend dining here but suggest booking as it is only a small restaurant.

La Repubblica on Balmoral Beach

Mosman

Clare dined on Sun, 22nd Oct 2017 (8)

We had Sunday Breakfast here right along side Balmoral Beach a beautiful setting to start the day. The Food and Service were both very good with the coffees arriving straight away. Highly recommended for Breakfast

Good Pizza

Alexandria

Clare dined on Thu, 19th Oct 2017 (10)

We loved Good Pizza not only are the Pizzas extremely tasty with a great crust the toppings are all fresh ingredients with a twist from your normal pizza. The Country Pumpkin Salad was extremely tasty as well as the share platter which we started with consisting of warm olives, beautiful mozzarella Cheese, Salami and crusty pizza base, We did not have room for desert but the Portugese Tart Pizza and the Rocky Road Pizza both sounded lovely. This Restaurant is also BYO.

Barrel Bar and Dining

Cremorne

Clare dined on Mon, 9th Oct 2017 (7)

Good food and service although we were a little disappointed as last time we came here for the 50% deal through Dimmi we were allowed to have the 3 courses for $58.00 per person which was in August this year this time we were told the minute we sat down that the 3 courses could not be used with the Dimmi deal?

Vessel Dining and Bar

King Street Wharf

Clare dined on Wed, 4th Oct 2017 (7)

We went with a group of 7 the service was good and the entrees tasty. The downfall is they advertise the steak as a Rib Eye which it isnt a Rib Eye should be on the bone and a thick cut which their steak was not...quiet disappointing. The lamb was tasty but a little tough.

Barrel Bar and Dining

Cremorne

Clare dined on Thu, 10th Aug 2017 (10)

We had an amazing dinner here last night the food was superb, presentation and skill 10 out of 10 every dish was a work of art. The service is first class we were very happy all round and could not recommend Barrel Bar and Dining more highly. Every dish was tasty and very well presented we will be back soon.

Zushi Darlinghurst

Zaaffran

Darling Harbour

Clare dined on Sun, 16th Jul 2017 (8)

Although the food and service were all very good and we had a lovely lunch I think the prices for Indian Food are extremely high! We paid $8.50 for each Lamb Cutlet with the smallest piece of meat on it ( very disappointing ) the prawn entree which came with only 3 prawns and there were 4 of us so we paid for an extra prawn were $6.00 a prawn, the cost for 4 prawns was more than what we would pay for a KG of prawns.

Restaurant Toshiya

Cremorne

Clare dined on Thu, 13th Jul 2017 (9)

Restaurant Toshiya is always good serving the freshest and tastiest Japanese anywhere on the North Shore, along with super fast service we would not go anywhere else.

Bavarian Bier Cafe Entertainment Quarter

Fanoos Restaurant

Crows Nest

Clare dined on Wed, 17th May 2017 (10)

Bushman's Bar and Cafe

Strahan

Clare dined on Sat, 11th Feb 2017 (9)

Fantastic food extremely generous servings with friendly staff

Cafe Opera

Sydney CBD

Clare dined on Wed, 18th Jan 2017 (5)

Being the Intercontinental and a 5 star Hotel I have to say I was not overwhelmed with the Seafood Buffet! The Sushi was dreadful the rice was not cooked properly and the filling had tin tuna and very little of it. The crab and Barramundi were both exceptionally dry and tasteless and the roast meats were tough and fatty and hacked at by the person carving! The oysters and mussels were lovely but they were fresh from the fish market so you could not go wrong! The service was ok but they need to smile more very wooden and serious. Luckily they were offering 2 for the price of 1 in January as I would have been upset to have had to pay full price for a meal that was not enjoyable.

Alfie & Hetty

Glebe

Clare dined on Wed, 4th Jan 2017 (9)

This Restaurant is a fantastic find set in an old terrace with a lot of history. The Degustation menu is excellent value the food is tasty and well presented and the service is fast and efficient cannot recommend it more highly.

Alfie & Hetty

Glebe

Clare dined on Wed, 19th Oct 2016 (10)

What a fantastic Restaurant, Alfie and Hetty lived up to the reviews on line. We had the degustation and every course was amazing we cannot wait to go back and choose from the menu. The service was excellent and the old terrace house that Alfie and Hetty is located in has a lot of charm and history behind it. Well done you are a brilliant chef and we left very happy.

Seamstress Restaurant

Melbourne CBD

Clare dined on Fri, 14th Oct 2016 (7)

We have been to Seamstress every time we have visited Melbourne and loved it but unfortunatley they have changed the menu to South American Tapas what a pity they did not leave as it was as the food was outstanding this time we were not overly impressed. The first 4 dishes came out very fast then the 5th dish took over 1.5hrs to come out. The service is very good and they did apologise for the wait but unless they change back to the old menu I do not think we will return:

Restaurant Toshiya

Cremorne

Clare dined on Tue, 4th Oct 2016 (9)

Fantastic Fresh amazing Food all the time:

Le Bouchon

Crows Nest

Clare dined on Wed, 24th Aug 2016 (10)

Zushi Darlinghurst

Darlinghurst

Clare dined on Fri, 5th Aug 2016 (10)

This is the first time we have eaten at Zushi and we were extremely happy the food and service were both wonderful. Beautiful sashimi platter followed by the best Teriyaki Salmon served on a bed on Asian Greens...delicious. The service was wonderful and we did not wait or want for anything. A Neighbourhood gem:

Claire's Gallery Balmain

Balmain

Clare dined on Tue, 12th Jul 2016 (10)

In my opinion this is one of the best places for Sushi and Sashimi in Sydney, the platter was huge, fresh, beautifully presented and excellent value. We have Japanese at least once a week, do not live in the Balmain area but will travel for good food. You will not be disappointed if you dine here the servings are huge and tasty.

Le Bouchon

Crows Nest

Clare dined on Wed, 6th Jul 2016 (10)

We dined as a group of 6 at Le Bouchon last Wednesday night the service and food are outstanding. everyone had a different entree and main and everyone was extremely pleased with their choice. Dishes we recommend are: Entrees Mussels in Tomato and Capsicum with warm crusty baguete and the scallop entree with 4 very plump and perfectly cooked scallops. Mains The duck and beef cheeks were both stand out dishes. Make sure you book as the night we went the Restaurant was completely full with at least 100 people. Le Bouchon offers 3 course for $60.00 which is fantastic value.

Extremely large portions and very good value. Friendly Service

Chiosco by Ormeggio

Mosman

Clare dined on Tue, 29th Mar 2016 (4)

After reading the reviews on line we were extremely disappointed with the food, we choose the $75.00 per person " Tasting Menu " while there was plenty of food it lacked any flavor, some of the Entrees were o.k. way to much crumble on every Entree but the pasta was bland and we did not eat it. On the other hand the service was very good and after telling the waitress we were disappointed and had expected a lot better she only charged us for 1 person instead of 2 which was extremely generous.

Gochiso Japanese Restaurant

Willoughby

Clare dined on Wed, 21st Oct 2015 (4)

After reading the reviews on Dimmi we decided to give this Restaurant a go but were extremely disappointed this is the most expensive Japanese we have ever had! We dine out at Japanese Restaurants at least once a week and this Restaurant is not one we will be returning to in a hurry. Value is extremely poor the food was average especially the sushi. The staff were friendly but lacking in English and kept taking the soy sauce away which we thought very strange.

Ripples at Chowder Bay

Mosman

Clare dined on Wed, 14th Oct 2015 (6)

The Service at Ripples Chowder Bay is outstanding we could not fault it at all. The fish was a little disappointing and had no flavour, there were also way to many chips on the plate impossible for anyone to eat, maybe a small salad on the plate as well as a small amount of chips would have been a better option!

Nar Ottoman

Rengaya

North Sydney

Clare dined on Fri, 9th Jan 2015 (5)

Great service but EXTREMELY expensive Sashimi that you can get for a quarter of the price at any other Japanese Restaurant. The reason we tried this Restaurant as they were featured on Sydney Weekender and the Sashimi Platter they showed looked amazing unfortunately our Sashimi Platter was nothing like the one shown on Sydney Weekender...beware!
