  • Rozelle Espresso

    Restaurants Rozelle, NSW
    Rozelle Espresso is centrally located near the Rozelle markets so is a great place to stop after your morning shop. It is a big cafe with heaps of tables and you can also reserve them. There's a play area and toys which would interest those with families. The atmosphere and decor is very kitsch which chalkboard walls and old school memorabilia. They have a huge menu with breakfast and brunch options as well as lots of choices for lunch. We went for the shakshuka which was a baked eggs with chorizo and capsicum and decorated beautifully with edible flowers and a pita bread crisp - delicious!
    I went for the waffles - two waffles; crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, topped with fresh fruit - banana, strawberries, blueberries, and also a small pot of maple syrup. This dish was so pretty!! We also got a sticky date butterscotch cupcake - divine. You could also pick from plenty of other sweets too. There looked to be some great lunch options like burgers and a spanner crab angel hair pasta - will have to go back sometime. Staff were super nice, helpful and attentive.

    I went back a second time and the truffle pasta was outstanding - delicate flavours and a generous serving. I also loved the Rueben sandwich which came with a side salad! Delicious
  • Burger Head

    Takeaways Penrith, NSW
    Cluckin chicken bites, and a chicken burger with steak Fries! Best burgers I've had in the west! If you have time go heck out burgerhead in Penrith. Delicious burgers, good service and great sides! Can't wait to try the white chocolate milksake. Reasonably priced and order from counter!
  • LoLuk Bistro

    Restaurants Surry Hills, NSW
    Lo Luk a French Bistro recently taking up residence in a converted terrace on Bourke Street Surryhills, towards Taylor Square. This new French provincial inspired Bistro is a neighbourhood gem opened by Luc an his brother from Northern France to serve homely traditional French cuisine. With street front seating allowing you to take in the social mixing pot which is Surryhills, there is indoor seating in the cosy cottage like dining room decorated with a touch of vintage French. Something special is the private courtyard dining area at the back of the restaurant.

    We visited for breakfast/brunch and started with the house made lemon Madeline to accompany our cafe au lait as the French would say. This is perfect if you are after a light sweet start to your day. The Madeline a golden cake with a nice subtle lemon flavour a very tasty moresel indeed.

    There were also a range of great drinks to suit, depending on what you are after be it a stiff start to your day in the form of a mimosa or bloody mary or a healthier option by choosing to go with a smoothy. The Champion smoothie a great refershing drink.

    The breakfast Oeufs parfait en verrine was magnific, a 60 degree slow cooked egg atop of slow cooked(confit) lamb and vegetables flavour infused with a mixture of herbs. The dish served with a side salad and house made focaccia. A dish that goes hand in hand with winter.

    We were in the mood for healthy and ordered Le Lèger. A salad of quinoa, pomegranade, leeks fondue, beetroot, goats cheese and poached egg. A salad with plenty of substance, perfect if you are after a light meal.

  • Smokkim

    Restaurants Rhodes, NSW


    Sitting down for a Korean BBQ we were keen to see what smokkim offered. We purchased the Wagyu beef platter packed with numerous cuts, and an enormous selection of sides. Whilst the meal was delicious, and the portions were generous, the service left a lot to be desired. After reading reviews, we saw where this restaurant lacks. It's service. Generally, the meals came out quick, but the service for drinks, the assistance with the BBQ and the finalising the meal was fairly poor. Spent a lot more time than we had anticipated, and whilst the food was delicious - the service needs some improvement
  • 10 William Street

    Restaurants Paddington, NSW
    We went here on a rainy Friday night and decided to go early as we know it gets busy. We were there around 5:30 and were lucky enough to get one of the last tables. Sitting on a comfy bench against the wall at a small table, were were pretty squished. The restaurant is extremely small, waiters have to push past each other and likewise you will need to if you go up stairs to the bathroom. It has a huge wine menu and wines by the glass. I got a wine and an aperol spritz which were both good. Hubby got a two wines, the second was a bit off, but they said it was funny due to it being organic and fermenting in the bottle. In any case, we sent it back as we felt there was something wrong with it. We still got charged.
    Food was all excellent and came out very promptly, food service and delivery was excellent in that regards. We had the whipped bottarga dip and pretzel which was extremely fluffy and light. We also tried the mozzarella and cabbage and the ragu pasta. Food was all outstanding.
    Staff were not overly friendly but efficient at their job.
  • The Cuban Place

    Gourmet Sydney, NSW
    A large Cuban/Latin restaurant bar near QVB. Have a meal, then dance it off. The restaurant has wooden floors with latin themed murals and pictures decorating the walls. Set the mood with some latin back ground music.
    The staff were friendly and attentive. The drinks list had a number of cocktails including the famed mojito, there were also a number of South American wines listed. We got the passion fruit mojito which was delicious.
    We decided to share some small plates to start including the Elote De La Havana which is grilled corn lolli pops, served with jalepeno aloli, secret sauce and popcorn! Loved it! We also got the Los 3 Platitos Cubanos which was 3 soft brioche buns with different fillings: lamb, adobo (pork and beef mixture) and chicken with mustard and pickles.
    For our mains we went with the tender rib eye fillet; a great steak, cooked as requested with a side of rice and beans and we also ordered a side salad. We also shared the Ropa Vie De Cordero -slow cooked braised lamb shoulder which very nice served in a crispy burrito bowl with tomato salsa.
    To top off the meal we went with the ever popular churros with chocolate sauce and Dulce de leche. Simply delicious.
    Spice up your life with a little latin flair at the Cuban place.
  • Sea Bay Restaurant

    Restaurants Sydney, NSW
    A cheap restaurant on pitt street towards china town. Notorious for its popularity, and cheap price. Considering it wasn't busy, service was slow and non chalant. They even turned the lights out suggesting they were closing. It was 9:30. Basic tables, cash only, easy for a quick dinner. It has a range of soups and noodles, eggs, and dumplings. We ordered the dumplings; half serve of vegetables and pork dumplings. They were ok, nothing to write home about, but satisfied the hunger.
  • The Smoking Panda

    Restaurants Sydney, NSW
    The smoking panda on park street can be found upstairs of the hotel coronation. Open til late, has a fully stocked bar with a huge variety of drinks, in particular, cocktails and mocktails that the bartenders or mixologists make like they?re a piece of art. It also has bar food, quality bar food that the chef devised and it is presented beautifully. Bar tables and also a seated area. They even have an aquarium with jellyfish. Great for a date or with group of friends
  • The Swinging Cat

    Pubs & Bars Sydney, NSW
    We just had a meal nearby and noticed the bar name and logo projected on the footpath and decided to go in for a night cap. As you go to walk in you are confronted by the neighbouring subway stores sign and the generic smell that the chain exudes. Don't worry, it soon disappears as you walk down the stairs into this dimly lit basement bar. The bar designed is New Orleans inspired. There is a band set up in the corner, you can enjoy some music with your drink. I am whiskey fan, cocktails, so I ordered the smoked honey. I am informed it is similar to an old fashioned, which is one my go to cocktails. The cocktail as the name suggests has a sweet honey flavour mixed with Johnny Black and talisker, you then get a smokey thyme hit. A nice cocktail, maybe a little too much smoke for me. A cool little venue for a cocktail and some music.
  • Gumption

    Cafes Sydney, NSW
    You know coffee is good when the place serves only coffee and has prime rental location in the CBD. This place was thriving early morning and beautiful aroma of coffee beans. They brew their own and sell coffee equipment too. I got a latte - so good that I didn't even need the sugar. Fast service too.
  • Since I Left You

    Pubs & Bars Sydney, NSW
    I stopped in to catch up with insta foodie friend for a quick drink. A cool bar with a great courtyard and love music. There is a very large and cool mural and a number of tables in the courtyard. There are also a few tables inside. I had a look at the cocktail menu and ordered a nice whiskey cocktail called Keith Bourbon. A great stop for some casual drinks.
  • Bowery Lane

    Restaurants Sydney, NSW
    Bowery Lane is in the CBD at the circular quay and is great place for a catch up with friend or a date and you can go breakfast, lunch or dinner. Not easy to initially spot, you'd have to be intending to go there. I had seen some yummy pictures on instagram so booked to go with my friends for dinner. As you walk in, it has a trendy vibe, cleanly styled in black, wood and concrete with plants hanging on the walls. It was quite busy and the restaurant did very well considering the amount of people there. The menu is designed with snacks, entrees, mains and desserts S well as plates to share or banquets. The food could be described as modern Australian. We got some cheese croquettes to share - these were delicious. Then an entree each - the scallops (well cooked and beautifully presented), as well as the beef tartare. This was nicely flavoured with yolk and gherkin and two crackers on the side. For a main we got the ragu orichette with a mint and pea sauce atop. It was very tasty. We also got the fish of the day which was the salmon, also very good. You do need sides though with you main if you don't get entrees. Higher price bracket so this place is for special occasions but all the food is very good and nicely presented. The waitress was sweet and unobtrusive. Manager wasn't overly friendly but effective at her job.
  • Pepper Lunch

    Restaurants Sydney, NSW
    I had a big day out and was heading home by George st and went to pepper lunch for dinner. I asked the waitress what the popular dish was and she said the pepper steak, so I ordered it. It was a large portion and it came out on a sizzling plate with rice and corn. I grabbed some siracha for extra flavour. I also ordered sweet potato fries which were nice and crisp. Cheap, quick and tasty.
  • Cafe Cre Asion

    Cafes Sydney, NSW
    I had seen heaps of great photos here and so had to check it out. It's matcha heaven. Matcha muffins, latte, cheesecake, macarons, wow! The place was packed, hardly a space to sit. I ordered a chai, and a matcha muffin - it was amazing - fluffy, gooey and even a touch of cream inside. I also got some dainty little macarons and a chai latte. I really liked this place and it lives up to the hype.
  • Archie Rose

    Bottle Shops Rosebery, NSW
    Great bar and distillery in Rosebery. You can get a gin and tonic, cocktail or even a flight of different ones to try. Their variety is huge and the bar staff are extremely knowledgeable. Interesting cocktails and their version on an espresso martini with coconut was excellent. Fitted out like you're back in the 1920's. Cool place to go for a drink
  • PappaRich

    Restaurants Sydney, NSW
    Papa Rich is a restaurant well known for its Malaysian cusine. There are stores scarttered around Sydney for you to get your Malaysian fix. The restaurant it pretty straight forward, clean and modern wth a number of tables to cater for hungry puntes.

    The food at Papparich is traditional Malaysian fare with plenty of flavour at a reasonable price. All of my favourites are on the menu including the light fluffy roti as well as nasi lemak which is an assortment of rice, peauts, sambal and a curry. The beef rendang is my usual go to.

    They also have a number of Malaysian drinks which certainly are colourful and almost dessert like, actually I would consder them to be a dessert. Sweet with jelly and sugar syrup. There are also other options availalable if you don't feel like a sweet drink, try one of their teas.

    Our friends and I shared a range of tasty bites including the satay skewers, chicken being the pick.

    There were dumplings too, as well kway teow: a simple tasty hawker style noodle dish. The roti canai is always a favourite also served hawker style on a steel tray with a finger lickin chicken curry. Tear off a bit of roti dip it in the sambal and use it to grab a piece of chicken curry, a great hands on dining experience.

  • The Rusty Rabbit

    Cafes Darlinghurst, NSW
    I went here for an easy weekday lunch and it was thriving with customers. The lovely waiter directed me to a table, gave me a menu and took my coffee order. I like that they offer breakfast foods all day and lunch options too. I was so keen for pancakes but trying to stay healthy so I got the chicken breast with brown rice, spinach and broccoli topped with sweet potato. Very healthy and nicely cooked. Could have done with a little more seasoning. They do a good chai latte too. A high rating because the man serving had extremely good customer service.
  • Bondi Pizza Bar & Grill

    Takeaways Bondi Junction, NSW
    Popped in here for dinner before a movie. We informed them we were in a rush and so food came out fast. The menu mostly has pizza, pasta, salads and entrees with fried options. We had the calamari (like a frozen style), small nachos and arancini. It was fine if that's the kind of food you're into. Service was extremely nice, lovely waitress. Extremely generous wine pour too.
