SEFA Kitchen

Bondi

Adel dined on Wed, 7th Nov 2018 (7)

It’s a great place with fantastic food and atmosphere. A bit pricy for a weekday eat out but a good choice for any special occasion.

Salmon & Bear

Newtown

Adel dined on Mon, 25th Jun 2018 (6)

For a weekday quick casual dinner, it was quite pricy. The food was good, but nothing I haven’t had before. The drinks are extremely expensive. Some review mentioned BYO, it’s no longer available. For 2 main meals and 1 entree, few beers we paid $140.. I expected better value. Maybe with the BYO it was..

Mad Pizza e Bar Bondi Beach

Bondi

Spice Temple

Southbank

Adel dined on Tue, 20th Feb 2018 (7)

This was a work dinner, so I took 12 people out from my team. We ordered a set menu, and some wine and soft drinks. The waiter was attentive and the food was fantastic. Pork belly and barramundi were standouts. The dessert and coffee were not great but we were full at the end anyway. It was quite expensive so you expect great quality food and service ($1500). It was definitely a great experience.

Mad Pizza e Bar Bondi Beach

Bondi

Adel dined on Sun, 14th Aug 2016 (6)

We went to Mad pizza on a Sunday evening to grab some food. The service was quite average, the entree arrived just after the main course but the waitress wasn't too apologetic. The pizzas went cold when we got to them. The food was good, but a bit pricy for the size. We had a dimi voucher which they forgot to apply, do had to explain the situation which was awkward as I was with a friend there. Overal, it was a good experience, but there are plenty of places in Bondi I'd rather go before return.

Harry's Bondi

Bondi Beach

Adel dined on Sat, 23rd Jul 2016 (7)

Its a lovely cafe with great service and food. We had brunch there and everything we ordered was tasty. The presentation of the food was very nice, they decorated the pancake with edible flowers, etc. it's a bit pricy, if you add a side dishes that really adds up ($3 for 1 extra egg, which you would do if the breaky is served with only 1 egg). We paid close to $100 for 3, we had one main from the brunch menu and coffee each. While the place is great, with good service, portion size is a let down. If you are after a rich, big breaky, this place may not be for you.

Aqua Dining

Milsons Point

Adel dined on Wed, 20th Apr 2016 (7)

Great place with views. Surprisingly, good value for money too.

Mumu Grill

Crows Nest

Adel dined on Tue, 8th Sep 2015 (1)

Not recommended. Worse service ever. They run a bday promotion for $8 per main, then they ended up charging the full main price plus $8. When I mentioned tney argued that I don't qualify for the T's and C's. It was very embarrassing as it all happened in front of my partner. Go somewhere else where tne food and service are both amazing. There are plenty of better places to go to.

The Hill Eatery

Bondi

Adel dined on Sat, 5th Sep 2015 (8)

Really good atmosphere and nice, quality meals. The portion size is a bit small for the price, but the meals are tasty and fantastic. I highly recommend it for special occasions and dates .

We had a half price offer and really enjoyed the experience. Great place and very nice food!

Cafe Del Mar

Darling Harbour

Adel dined on Thu, 30th Apr 2015 (2)

Not recommended. I've been looking forward to try this place as it comes across classy, but I must say the service and food quality didn't meet my expectations. We started with cured meat which was fantastic. For main we shared the braised lamb for 2, barramundi, and had garlic mash and green beans on the side. The braised lamb was very average, almost dry and pretty tasteless. The barramundi had crispy skin but so salty that it was impossible to eat. The garlic mash tasted like mash potato from powder, very average and couldn't taste garlic at all. The green beans were too oily. We didn't finish out meal, it was disappointing. We also had to top up our water as the water was not always around to do so. I had the 50% off dimmi special, which they forgot to consider, so had to send the bill back. They kindly adjusted it, but it just added to the disappointing experience. A place with such prices and location should meet minimum standards.. I cannot recommend this place.

Kobe Jones Sydney

Darling Harbour

Adel dined on Sun, 26th Apr 2015 (7)

We choose their set menu for 2 for $99 per head. The food was amazing but found it a bit too small to share. The servings are small and mostly share plates. Bear in mind also, that on Sunday tney charge 15% surcharge, this will end up bring another $30 in top of your meal based on your total order. I cannot fault quality and the food, just a bit pricy for what you get.

Kobe Jones Sydney

Darling Harbour

Adel dined on Thu, 23rd Apr 2015 (8)

It was a great dining experience, great location, extensive menu, good service, and amazing food. We have ordered a set menu for 2, which included a range of food items and share plates including volcano roll, wagyu on a hot rock, tempura and other delicacies. It was enough food for 2 but could have served a bit larger portions. I had a great time and will go back.

Bah-BQ Brazilian Grill

Great experience, the waiter was polite and attentive, and the food was amazing! Highly recommended!

Kobe Jones Sydney

Darling Harbour

Adel dined on Mon, 9th Mar 2015 (5)

We had a Monday reservation and had the all you can eat sushi special for $40 each. The catch was the famous volcano roll on the menu, but unfortunately we were unable to choose what we preferred. They brought out 2 plates of sushi including vegetarian, lobster, tuna, wagyu and volcano but this selection was not very mind blowing. The best was the volcano roll but the rest was very average. I would have been better off just ordering from the menu. Learning the lessons.. All up it was a very average experience, with not great service, as I had to keep chasing the waitress for topping up my water glass.

The Hill Eatery

Bondi

Adel dined on Thu, 26th Feb 2015 (7)

Great food, one of my favoutite locals. It's not cheap, but good food and a lovely environment. We had thd lamb shoulders and the paella which were exceptional. Highly recommended.

The Hill Eatery

Adel dined on Thu, 12th Feb 2015 (7)

Great food,and the service improved a lot in the recent months. I went there with a bunch of girlfriends, the food was great, maybe the portions could have been bigger for the price they charge. We had a good time, I will definitely come back.

The Hill Eatery

Bondi

Adel dined on Wed, 4th Feb 2015 (7)

It was a great dining experience, nice atmosphere and great food, although it was a bit overpriced. I had the lamb shoulder to share, which was done nicely, wasn't extraordinary though and a bit small for a $40 dish. Then we shared the paella, which was quite tasty. The service was flowing well, didn't have to wait too long for the food as opposed to weekends when it's packed. Overal, good dining experience.

The Spice Room

Sydney CBD

Adel dined on Sun, 21st Dec 2014 (5)

I heard a lot about this place and always wanted to try. We ordered an entree and 2 mains. The food was pleasant but only average. It didn't have that kick to it that you would want from a good Indian meal. The service was good, very attentive staff, kept filling up the water glasses and were very nice. Altogether, I liked this dining experience but it wasn't a standout of me.

The Hill Eatery

Bondi

Adel dined on Sat, 20th Sep 2014 (5)

Lovely place with great tasting food, high quality produced are used for the dishes. The only let down is the slow service. If you are having a3 course meal, expect to wait at least 20 mins between each courses..

The Hill Eatery

Bondi

Adel dined on Sat, 6th Sep 2014 (2)

I used to love this ace but the service got really bad in the last few months and the good quality and portion size started dropping too. I had calamari on whole wheat pilaf for $22 for entree, I waited 20 mins, and it was at 5.30 they had just 1 more table to serve.. The calamari was only a half handful on a big bed of pilaf.. I then had beef cheek linguini.. Again, waited a while, then the pasta was undercooked.. And the portion got smaller than last time too. Mind you it's not cheap $32.. When i mentioned it to the staff as feedback, she took off 5% of the dish.. It's like $2... I wasn't impressed.. Slow, unfriendly, grumpy staff, I was unimpressed this time for sure.

The Hill Eatery

It was a Monday night and we decided to eat out. The hills had a Monday special local day for $20 main/ pax. We ordered seafood paella for 2, it was amazing! A whole salmon filet, squids cooked to perfection, prawns and the rice and chorizo mix was nicely done. I could eat this dish every day. Good quality ingredients, great atmosphere. Highly recommended!

The Hill Eatery

Bondi

I had a dinner date here and the atmosphere was fantastic for that. We shared an entree and a main for 2. The food is really amazing, creative and fresh produce. We started with lamb cutlets and the size of the dish was larger than I expected. We then shared a paela which was exceptional.the seafood was fresh and it came with a whole salmon piece. I'm definitely coming back. :) if one thing was negative then it would be the slow service.. It took quite a while for the kitchen to get the food out. Other than that I can highly recommend it.

I had a dinner there with a girlfriend. It was an amazing dining experience, and I will definitely be back. The atmosphere is great, outstanding dishes, and good portion size.

Pink Salt

Double Bay

Adel dined on Fri, 23rd May 2014 (4)

I always wanted to try Pink Salt and was very excited to finally dine there. The atmosphere and service was great but the food was very average and overpriced for the quality. We had squids to start with then burramundi and pork belly for main.. The squid was average, nicely done but I expected some incredible flavours. For main, the fish had no crispy skin and the pork belly was overcooked. The dishes weren't very creative. Pleasant meal without the wow factor. I wouldn't dine there again, it was just an average experience.
