Busy but cute place - great for lunch. Great friendly staff. Food quite spicey ....

The Crafty Squire

Melbourne CBD

Debra dined on Fri, 15th Feb 2019 (7)

It's a pub so of course it is pub-like. That means crowded and noisy which is what one would expect. The upstairs dining area is less noisy - especially if you get a table near the windows. The serves are very generous so if you have a big appetite ..... go here!

Din Tai Fung Melbourne

Melbourne CBD

Debra dined on Fri, 15th Feb 2019 (8)

An interesting place ....... large and based on "efficient" ordering and fast service. Good basic Chinese food. I love dumplings. Nice spot (when you have finally found it). They don't answer the phone if you want to change your booking ..... Oh and key information - it is on the fourth floor!

Makan Restaurant

Melbourne CBD

Debra dined on Fri, 8th Feb 2019 (8)

Very, very interesting and delicious food! And beautifully described and explained by the wait staff.

Punch Lane

Melbourne CBD

Debra dined on Tue, 5th Feb 2019 (7)

Convenient for quick lunch. Food was good. Wait staff were a bit disengaged (not loving their jobs I guess).

Interesting basement location. Pub-like set-up. Self service arrangement (no table service). Bit dark and hard to see. Food was good.

Red Spice QV

Melbourne CBD

Debra dined on Thu, 4th Jan 2018 (8)

Went there for lunch - quality, interesting food and good service. Would prefer decor without images of disrobed women - the world is finally moving on from this habit - yeah yeah its "art" but women get disrobed pretty well everywhere foe other people's benefit (i.e. men) not theirs - we need to stop doing it.

If you like hot Indian you'll love this - if you prefer it not so hot ask for mild.

Society Restaurant & Bar

Melbourne CBD

Debra dined on Thu, 3rd Nov 2016 (9)

Was there for lunch (so tend to spend less) and they have a great quick lunchtime special menu. Service is always excellent and you can rely on the food. Good wine selections too.

Campari House

Melbourne CBD

Debra dined on Mon, 24th Oct 2016 (7)

The poor waiter was run off his feet ....... so service was slow but could see why. He made up for it, though, with his very friendly, pleasant manner.

Reliable for quality food and good, friendly service.

Waterfront Restaurant

The Rocks

Debra dined on Sat, 1st Oct 2016 (5)

Did staff call in sick? The service was seriously slow and the food was cold. Our waiter did his best but he could not produce food that was not ready. Hey how about some bread or something while we wait, and wait, and wait ....... and very weird to advertise as two restaurants with different pricing profiles when there is only one restaurant and no difference at all .... the staff were v helpful and gracious when I asked for a different table. Came for the views (from Melbourne) so sitting directly behind the tall book-in desk was not acceptable ....

Criniti's Darling Harbour

Sydney CBD

Debra dined on Sun, 4th Sep 2016 (5)

Food was fine. The chairs need repairing .......

Q dining

Circular Quay

Debra dined on Sun, 4th Sep 2016 (10)

One of the best locations of course - but the food is special and so is the service.

Eastbank Cafe Bar Pizzeria

Circular Quay

Debra dined on Sat, 3rd Sep 2016 (6)

The fish and chips was fresh and very tasty. I note Sydney is evidently a sauvignon blanc drinking crowd - always at least four of those! I'd prefer more choices of other wines .....

Yayoi Garden

Sydney CBD

Debra dined on Fri, 2nd Sep 2016 (7)

Our plane was late and therefore so were we - the kitchen closes at 9.30 - we got there by 9.15 and ordered quickly but we felt rushed to finish our meal and leave. The restaurant was very soon emptying. Really, does central Sydney go to bed at 10pm on a Friday night?

Mezzo

Melbourne CBD

The duck was extremely good! With a glass of pinot noir - 'duck and pinot heaven'!

Great building and atmosphere. If you have more than 6, though, you are obliged to have a set menu.

San Paolo Solarino

Melbourne CBD

Debra dined on Fri, 19th Aug 2016 (9)

This was breakfast. Dimmi should have a section for breakfast places. Great food and great service. You have to go down a laneway to find the place though (the address is misleading).

Criniti's Carlton Melbourne

Carlton

Reliable steaks and great char-grilled vegies ...... Good wine list too.

Blondie

Southbank

Debra dined on Mon, 27th Jun 2016 (7)

The food is spectacular. The wait staff, however, whilst very friendly, which is appreciated, have not been trained to use their peripheral vision or pay careful attention to customers. Too hard to get their attention, distracting them from their chatting. Wasn't even noticed when I walked in ........ too busy wiping tables ......

Mr Beebe's Eating House and Bar

Bendigo

Debra dined on Sun, 26th Jun 2016 (9)

Excellent food - really good. And waiter who knows his wine ........... Also great fresh bread served at beginning with French butter .......

Can be a bit noisy but if you get there early, like before a show, it can be great.

La Camera Southgate

Southbank

Debra dined on Mon, 6th Jun 2016 (8)

Salmon was lovely - tasty and well presented. Good wine. Didn't eat the risotto but saw it on another table and it looked yummy - and a very generous serve. Will go back for that. My friend's roasted spatchcock was tasty but she would have liked it browned up more ...

Delightful place. Delightful people. Even the glassware and tableware is of high quality. I must go there for dinner too.

Freight Bar & Restaurant

Ballarat

Debra dined on Sat, 28th May 2016 (8)

Food and service good. It was a bit cold in the restaurant but the staff offered a table away from the door which helped a bit. We were not in the 'alfresco' area upstairs - I think this would be really nice in summer.

Excellent food and wait staff who are friendly, gracious and responsive.

Taxi Kitchen

Melbourne CBD

Debra dined on Sun, 10th Apr 2016 (6)

Food FANTASTIC but service terrible. Even had wine list whipped away by maître d, without even a glance at us, before we had looked at it. Could it be that 2 middle-aged women ordering entrees are not seen as valued customers? Would not go back.

Squires Loft Ballarat

Lalla Rookh

Great food - interesting, tasty and high quality. Really nice, interesting place too - only prob was we needed our phone torches to read the menus.

Squires Loft Ballarat

Ballarat

Debra dined on Fri, 30th Oct 2015 (6)

Excellent steaks as usual. We were really, really, really looking forward to the main fare – staple of the restaurant - great steak and big baked potato with sour cream (or chips or sweet potato) – so imagine our surprise that they had run out of potatoes…. Really?!!!!! That is the main fare – you have to pay a lot extra for sauce, or vegetables or salad, so getting the basics wrong is not good. I get the unpredictability of patronage, but we booked, so they knew we were coming ….

Vivace Restaurant

Brighton

Debra dined on Tue, 13th Oct 2015 (9)

Excellent food and excellent service.

Squires Loft Ballarat

Ballarat

Debra dined on Sat, 3rd Oct 2015 (9)

The staff were really busy - they probably could have done with an extra person so that things like water and wine could be brought really quickly ....

Left Bank Melbourne

Southbank

Debra dined on Mon, 28th Sep 2015 (8)

Was there at 5pm and already busy! So, service a little slow ..... But Monday night? Was not asked if I wanted a second wine ... Food was excellent ....... Wait staff offered useful advice.

RAB Bar & Restaurant

Melbourne CBD

Debra dined on Fri, 18th Sep 2015 (5)

It's a hotel. My risotto was a lot of rice and a very few mushrooms. My friends hamburger was average. The staff were nice but inattentive - I thought maybe there were not enough staff, but we were there quite early - presumably well before it gets busy.

Il Pom Italian Fed Square

Melbourne CBD

Debra dined on Tue, 15th Sep 2015 (9)

Great service - very accommodating re dietary requirements and timing to get to show. And very interesting, tasty food.

The Trustee Bar & Bistro

Perth CBD

Debra dined on Thu, 13th Aug 2015 (10)

Wow, duck and pinot heaven - one of my favoutites. Fantastic meal and excellent wine list. Also excellent service and food/wine knowledge by staff. Watched the meals at other tables too which looked great and were duly demolished. If you are over 50 and don't see too well any more, ask for a table with a light over it - we weren't the only ones using our phone torches to read the menu. Great night.

Yogi Indian Cuisine

Mandurah

Debra dined on Tue, 11th Aug 2015 (9)

Really nice staff. They have gone to a lot of trouble and expense to create a nice decor with attention to detail and privacy of tables. Food was good. The vindaloo IS hot!

Muster Bar & Grill

Bluestone Restaurant

Melbourne CBD

Debra dined on Thu, 23rd Jul 2015 (10)

One of the best menus I've seen in a while. And the chef was very accommodating of my friend who had specific food intolerances. Service was excellent - gorgeous, warm, friendly, young woman in front of house.

The Gallery @ Craig's Royal

Ballarat

Debra dined on Fri, 22nd May 2015 (8)

The staff need better training if this really is going to be the "Windsor of Ballarat". How about some table cloths and candles on the tables at night? - especially in winter there needs to be some warmer décor ......

Jacksons & Co

Ballarat

Debra dined on Tue, 5th May 2015 (5)

Previous occasions have been great but not this time! The staff were seriously inattentive (hardly any customers - staff out the back somewhere) and my food had definitely been re-warmed to tepid - the rice was in hard chunks and fish does not re-warm well ..... The wine was good and was served quickly, in an ice-bucket.

Tea House at China Town

Melbourne CBD

Debra dined on Sun, 22nd Feb 2015 (9)

Excellent food and excellent service and good wine list - including good range of pinot noir to accompany duck dishes. We were a group of 11. We ordered a banquet and the restaurant was very willing to accommodate a couple of people with special dietary requirements.

Cabinet Bar

Melbourne CBD

Debra dined on Thu, 29th Jan 2015 (9)

Lovely warm friendly staff member. The balcony is elevated so you can watch the city crowds - just be aware if you sit outside on the balcony, which is lovely, someone might come out and smoke (which isn't lovely)

Little Blue Restaurant

St Kilda

Debra dined on Thu, 15th Jan 2015 (3)

The staff are unskilled and not properly trained. It was very disappointing. There were almost more staff than customers but we got hardly any attention and they know nothing about the food the wine, or service.

Squires Loft Ballarat

Ballarat

Steaks were excellent and presentation good too. And generous with the sauces. The staff were run off their feet so this made the service a bit slow.
