Miss Lilian


David dined on Sat, 3rd Nov 2018 (3)

We were disappointed by the food. Having seen them at one of the Leura fairs before they opened we were keen to give them a try. The waiter was a bit pushy when we only wanted tap water. All of the food came out together when it was very obvious that we were going to be sharing. To be honest the food was bland. The prawns in the salad we had, had been defrosted and were tasteless. It needs to make its mind up if it wants to be street food or high end. sorry to say I could have gone to Katoomba street and got a tastier meal for less. Needs a lot of work before I would consider going back.

Cafe Heide

It was above average for a gallery

Fratelli Fresh Walsh Bay

Sydney CBD

David dined on Tue, 10th Jul 2018 (5)

Fratelli Fresh has lost the individual experience it once was. It is now more commercial and has lost a number of the fantastic dishes it once has. Ok for pre-theatre dinner

Baccomatto Osteria

Surry Hills

David dined on Wed, 20th Jun 2018 (10)

I have eaten here a number of times and never had a bad meal

Hicksons Izakaya

Dawes Point

David dined on Thu, 26th Apr 2018 (6)

The service was a bit slack. I had my meal before my glass of wine arrived. On the upside it was ok for a quick meal prior to the theatre


Melbourne CBD

David dined on Tue, 3rd Apr 2018 (8)

We went for a late lunch and the restaurant was quiet, however, more importantly, the food and the service were excellent. The bread that they served was some of the nicest bread I've had.

Hotel Centennial


David dined on Thu, 1st Mar 2018 (9)

The hotel has a good vibe, the service was good and the food tasty. This was our second visit and will not be our last

Cutler & Co.


David dined on Sun, 14th Aug 2016 (9)

We went for the Sunday lunch. This was a return visit for us, and would go again, good food, good service, and good value.

Solitary Restaurant


David dined on Sat, 12th Mar 2016 (7)

The restaurant is a nice place to go if you want something a bit special without being too fussy.

Flower Drum

Melbourne CBD

David dined on Sun, 10th Aug 2014 (9)

David dined on Fri, 8th Aug 2014 (9)

David dined on Mon, 4th Aug 2014 (8)

Taxi Kitchen

Melbourne CBD

David dined on Sat, 2nd Aug 2014 (9)

It was a good night out, a bit noisy but that is the nature of the restaurant



David dined on Fri, 25th Jul 2014 (8)

This was a return visit for us, with the food being as good as it was last time, however, I think the degustation is better value then picking off the menu. The staff are very friendly and the service is good, but the environment can be a bit loud.For us it is a local restaurant, but if it wasn't, would I cross town to eat there? I guess yes is the answer !
