Xenia Food Store

Must try for starters, the dolmakades (stuffed vine leaves) and calamari, and the chicken skewers and lamb cutlets as mains.

La Luna Bistro

Carlton North

Ryan dined on Fri, 14th Sep 2018 (9)

First visit here. Really enjoyed the pappadelle ragi and Butchers Cut steak. Recommend the grilled asparagus too

Bar Rochford

Canberra

Ryan dined on Sat, 7th Jul 2018 (10)

Great service and attentiveness. Strongly recommend the Kingfish and sweetmeats special, along with the Salt & Vinegar Galette. The Citrus Pisco Sour cocktail was a winner, as was a winner as was the Last Rites Black IPA. Loved the roaring open fire. Definitely a Canberra gem!

Zaab

Braddon

Ryan dined on Sat, 23rd Jun 2018 (10)

Another fantastic meal at Zaab - highly recommend the Betel Leaf bites, Laos Sausage and Beef Massumun curry! Yummo!

Another great meal at Blu Ginger. Swift and friendly service, and very tasty food.

Vibrante Restaurant & Bar

Ryan dined on Wed, 27th Dec 2017 (9)

Nice restaurant, large venue, fresh food and prompt service.

Akiba

Canberra

Ryan dined on Sat, 14th Oct 2017 (10)

Sake tastings as we arrived were very good - even bought some extra! The Yuzu sake was my favourite. Roasted carrot,Japanese fried chicken and Pork Belly Bao bun were all standout!! Roast duck and Salt&Pepper squid were not so stand-out this visit, compared to the others.

Temporada

Yellowfin tuna, calamari for starters, beef fillet as mains with a side of grilled asparagus. Chocolate ganache for dessert - Yummo!

Lanterne Rooms

Great selection for food. Highly recommend the lamb rolls, wagyu beef curry, roast pumpkin and green beans. Would love to try the banquet next time!!

Zaab

Braddon

Ryan dined on Sat, 29th Jul 2017 (10)

Betel leaf starters, yellow chicken curry, Crying Tiger were all fabulous dishes. My new favourite are the Laotian sausages - tasty pork garnished with matchsticks of fresh ginger - yummo!!!!

Blu Ginger

City

Ryan dined on Sat, 10th Jun 2017 (9)

Another great meal at Blu Ginger!

Zaab

Braddon

Ryan dined on Sat, 29th Apr 2017 (9)

Great meal at Zaab on a cool Canberra night, but the heaters were on, blankets available, and warm welcomes from the staff. Prompt service for drinks, and a mix of recommendations from the wait staff. Recommended must-trys are the Betel leaf starter (a mix of tastes), Grilled seafood platter (all so fresh, and loved the very spicy sauce that came with it), Duck Curry (Yummo!) and Crying Tiger beef (fresh with a spicy zing), and jasmine rice as sides. Not enough space for cocktails of puddings this time, but will surely be back for those!

Blu Ginger

Great food, very fresh and tasty. Not too spicy for us. Great prompt and friendly service. Will visit again

Courgette Restaurant

Canberra

Ryan dined on Sat, 11th Feb 2017 (6)

Impressive venue and menu. Service was a little disappointing as not prompt nor discrete. Lighting was reduced later on so I struggled to read the menu. Not sure if I'd go back. Would consider to try Aubergine though

Pony Dining Eagle Street Pier

Brisbane CBD

Ryan dined on Mon, 16th Jan 2017 (7)

Great food - had the lamb share plate which was way too much food for two diners. Service was so-so, and there was no atmosphere on a Monday night - they were more focussed on cleaning and chatting amongst themselves. Disappointing.

Saigon Sally

Windsor

Ryan dined on Thu, 12th Jan 2017 (9)

Had the Feed me option for four people. Pork belly and kingifsh ceviche was fantastic! Malbec wine was very fine. Decor and ambience was great, service was not as prompt as I'd expect for such a place and reputation. Would revisit though! Couldn't fault he deserts!!

The DOG Hotel

Randwick

Ryan dined on Mon, 5th Dec 2016 (9)

A cavern of a place. Great food and specials, would visit again

The Windsor Alehouse

Windsor

Ryan dined on Sat, 3rd Dec 2016 (9)

Great live music with Chad and Tom on Saturday night!!

Thirty Eight Chairs

South Yarra

Ryan dined on Sat, 19th Nov 2016 (10)

Great food and service. Tasty Aperols, salami platter and bread, arancini then pasta for two. Will definitely be going back again to try out th degustation menu

Pane E Vino

Brisbane

Ryan dined on Thu, 15th Sep 2016 (9)

Always a pleasant dining experience at Pane e Vino!

Ochre Restaurant

Cairns

Ryan dined on Tue, 9th Aug 2016 (8)

After my first visit to Ochre at its previous address, I was surprised to learn that they had moved just recently. Glad that I checked that before going. Food and service are as good as I remember from that first visit. Unfortunately the new location doesn't seem to have the same atmosphere and ambience as the old restaurant. Nevertheless really enjoyed the dining experience and would go back again!

Cafe Republic

South Yarra

Ryan dined on Sun, 31st Jul 2016 (7)

Pleasant staff providing prompt service. Nice breakfast vibe on a Sunday morning

Seamstress Restaurant

Melbourne CBD

Ryan dined on Fri, 15th Jul 2016 (9)

During a 30 minute wait for our reserved table to be vacated and prepared, we had some pre-dinner drinks in the Cocktail Bar on the top floor. Very relaxed environment, not too loud so good for conversation. Service at dinner was great, very responsive and informative waiters - we couldn't decide on what to have to went for the 'Just feed me' option. Food came out quickly and correctly - we thoroughly enjoyed the striploin, BBQ chicken, pork belly(best dish!), roti and Brussell sprouts. Dessert of brownie and churros were went down a treat!! The only disappointment for me was the chargrilled baby octopus - was lacking in flavour and texture for me. Perhaps it was just me... Anyways would strongly recommend Seamstress!!!!

Buffalo Bar

Brisbane

Ryan dined on Wed, 6th Jul 2016 (7)

Beef short ribs and sweet potato fries were a hit as were the beers. Only downside was that the entire restaurant was very draughty and cold - mainly due to the windy Brisbane weather but also that the back doors had to be kept open for safety. N

Pane E Vino

Brisbane

Ryan dined on Tue, 5th Jul 2016 (8)

Very good service, and tasty food. Especially enjoyed the Vegetale platter as antipasti.

Squires Loft South Yarra

South Yarra

Ryan dined on Sat, 25th Jun 2016 (8)

Great service, especially as very busy. Restaurant had cold draughts blowing through it, electric heaters inside did keep the cold away but it become very hot upstairs above the kitchen. Found the tables very close together so you can get a lot of noise from nearby tables o groups.
