Restaurants Forest Lodge, NSWDelicious tapas restaurant! A great little place to come on a Sunday afternoon, it's not too busy and the atmostphere is bright and welcoming. My favourite dish was the grilled calamari, so yummy and full of flavour! The homemade butter was melt in your mouth good!
Restaurants Sydney, NSWI visited this place on a Thursday night after work and enjoyed the experience. My friends and I came here for a drink, we went downstairs to the bar area and ordered two gin and tonics. I wasn't really happy with my drink, the girl behind the bar didn't seem like she paying attention when she was making the drinks. They were very weak and didn't taste like any alcohol. The second round was better, the actual bartender made the drinks. We didn't try out the restaurant but the food looked really good.
Restaurants Sydney, NSWI only came here one night very late for late cocktail and throughly enjoyed it! Very intimate and cosy I would say. The interior design and decor is modern and sleek. The views also make this place very special. My friend ordered the salted caramel espresso martini, which tasted like a salted caramel milkshare. Delicious!
Restaurants Barangaroo, NSWA beautiful restaurant! Very quick service, our food arrived at our table in a timely manner. Every dish I had was delicious! The prawn bisque was absolutly delicious! All dishes are made to share and the only downfall was that I felt the dishes were a little too small. We also ordered a lovely bottle of Rose wine which was also very nice. The service is exceptional and the ambience made you feel right at home. Wasn't too loud either.
Restaurants Brighton-le-sands, NSWThis was not an enjoyable experience. We were first placed on a table that clearly did not fit all of us. We had to ask for another table because we were too squished. We ordered the set menu, they took at least half an hour to bring out the first course. Calamari were over cooked and too salty. The zucchini chips? Boring and needed salt! The hot chips that came with the sovlaki were too salty. The pita bread was OK. The dips that came with the pita bread were too runny and not that enjoyable. The Tzaziki, you couldn't taste the cucumber, you could only taste yogurt. The haloumi with watermelon was yummy, this shouldn't be hard to stuff up. Slice, grill and serve. Thie chicken souvlaki was lovely and tender but there wasn't enough to go around. I left there hungry. The best thing about this restaurant is that it's BYO. I won't be coming here again.
Hotels Canberra, ACTBeautiful hotel in Canberra! My favourite part about this hotel was the lobby, bar and restaurant area. It was full of class and quirkiness. The pictures of famous people brighten up the hotel. The cocktails are very delicious, and the waitstaff are quite friendly too. The buffet breakfast was full of amazing things to eat. Hot, fresh crossiants, eggs cooked your way by a not-so-friendly chef, fresh fruit, coffee, sweets and lots more. I'd definitely stay here again.
Takeaways Canberra, ACTYum! What a beautiful Italian restaurant we found in the heart of Canberra. A little bit of 'fine dining' but the food was worth it. Generous portions, I ordered the risotto special. It has pine and porcini mushrooms which was so delicious I didn't want my plate to end! Expensive wine but was definitely worth it, all very delicious.
Takeaways Canberra, ACTYum! Lovely (hidden) Italian restaurant in Canberra. We visited her for a weekend and was recommended this place. The pizzas were oven toasted and delicious, the gnocci were light and fluffy and full of flavour.
Restaurants Haberfield, NSWHow did this restaurant get a 4.0 rating? Extremely disappointed with the food and service here. There were quite a few of us but that shouldn't excuse the service. No drinks arrived to our table for at least an hour. Not even some water. Garlic pizza arrived and was dry and burnt. The antipasti platters had small amounts of cold cuts that were straight out from a packet. The ham was a thick as my palm. The calamari were cold and needed salt. The penne Napoletana had a nice flavour but the pasta was over cooked and soft. The fettuccine bosciaola was OK. It has more flavour but again the pasta was not aldente. The spaghetti vongole was over cooked and I kept crunching on grits of sand! The pizza was average. The sauce was not cooked. There are plenty of other Italian restaurants that 'do it better' in Haberfield.
Cafes Surry Hills, NSWLovely little cafe! The staff are super friendly and happy to accommodate you. I ordered the tuna Niçoise salad which was yummy and was a very generous size portion. They even knew how to brew chai tea. :) Happy days. Will definitely come back to try their breakfast menu.
Restaurants Surry Hills, NSWLoved it!! Beautiful, delicious vegetarian food. The service is great and the food arrived to our table in less than a heart beat. The restaurant was full also! Cocktails not the best but the food is definitely the highlight. Can't wait to go back again.
Restaurants Balmain, NSWI enjoyed this Spanish tapas restaurant! I felt like I was somewhere in Barcelona. There was live entertainment with ladies singing and dancing. The wine we had was lovely. The paella was very nice too. Different as it had other ingredients in it like capsicum which I've never experienced in a paella before. The calamari we had wasn't the best. It tasted like it was frozen from a pack.
Cafes Redfern, NSWI have mixed feelings about this cafe. The food that I ordered (wild mushrooms on sourdough) came out cold. I didn't complain about them because I was hungry and in a rush. The flavors were nice though although I couldn't really taste any truffle. The mango yogurt my friend ordered was too sweet and didn't really taste like mango yogurt. It tasted like Jalna vanilla yogurt from the tub with a whole lot of fancy mango/ jelly things on top. My chai almond milk latte was bland. Over priced too.
Restaurants Sydney, NSWDelicious!!! What an amazing modern Mexican restaurant in the heart of Sydney. I love, loved the Guacamole that they make right in front of you at your table. The theatrics! Cocktails, service and food is tops. They also catered for gluten and dairy free which can always be a hassle.
Cafes Balmain, NSWI love this cafe in the heart of Balmain. The food is so delicious and so are the Marsala Chai teas. They also have almond milk which can sometimes be hard to come by. The was a little bit slow but I guess that was because they were full and we had to wait a couple minutes for a table but all worth the wait!
Caterers Annandale, NSWI ordered some catering through an online website on Monday for my work event on Wednesday and this caterer delivered the goods! Their menu is simple but offers a wide variety of foods to select from. The food was delivered on time in hotboxes because they had other jobs to cater to afterwards. The food stayed warm and was so delicious!! I'm so happy with their service and pricing and I will definitely be using them for future events.
Pubs & Bars Watsons Bay, NSWDrinks and cocktails are lovely. They are watered down though. We ordered about 8 jugs of cocktails and didn't really feel the alcohol. The food isn't the greatest either. I would stick to the burger or the fish n chips. You can't really go wrong with fish when your so close to the water.
