Bar Patron by Rockpool

Sydney CBD

Olivia dined on Mon, 28th May 2018 (4)

Amazing location and decor, great margaritas however service leaves a lot to be desired.


Surry Hills

Olivia dined on Sun, 15th Apr 2018 (6)

Great value, especially with Dimmi 50% off food deal. Sharing menu is extremely generous and food is great. Service is a bit haphazard, we had to follow up a few times to order drinks, get the bill etc, but overall it's a nice neighbourhood place


North Sydney

Olivia dined on Wed, 28th Mar 2018 (8)

Great restaurant in North Sydney, lovely balcony and great food

Olio Kensington Street


Olivia dined on Thu, 25th Jan 2018 (6)

Lovely atmosphere and food. Service well meaning but haphazard. There’s definitely a disconnect between kitchen and floor, waitstaff not knowing which tables food is going to etc

Butcher and the Farmer

Forest Lodge

Olivia dined on Sun, 21st Jan 2018 (8)

Fantastic food, lovely setting in Tramsheds.

The Glebe Hotel


Olivia dined on Fri, 19th Jan 2018 (9)

Absolutely love AYH restaurant. Some of the best steak in Sydney. Reasonably priced, great setting that feels like fine dining but in a relaxed setting. Can't recommend the restaurant enough.

Kitchen by Mike CBD

Sydney CBD

Olivia dined on Wed, 20th Sep 2017 (9)

Amazing food, lovely wine and outstanding service. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a good restaurant in the CBD that offers excellent, honest food without the silver service fanfare.



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

Such a warm and wonderful place, exquisite food without any pretence. Passionate waitstaff who love the food and know their wine. Can't recommend highly enough.

Eastside Bar + Grill


Olivia dined on Tue, 25th Jul 2017 (6)

We had a nice enough dinner here, but it was obvious they haven't quite worked out service. Steaks were good but at $78 I was expecting something amazing. If it weren't for having a Dimmi 50% deal, I would have been disappointed.

Moon Park


Olivia dined on Tue, 1st Sep 2015 (10)

Absolutely amazing. This was my second visit, with the express purpose of ordering the tasting menu - which I highly recommend. Food was spectacular, so many lovely tastes and textures, the tasting menu is great value for money and there wasn't a single dish anyone at the table didn't like. The service is impeccable while still remaining friendly and casual. This is an awesome restaurant that does amazing food without any of the pretense or fanfare you often find at 'fancy' restaurants.

Moon Park


Olivia dined on Fri, 10th Jul 2015 (9)

Fantastic friendly staff who explained the menu perfectly. The food is divine, excellent portions, so tasty and just out of this world. I'll be back for the amazing tasting menu!



Olivia dined on Wed, 10th Jun 2015 (9)

Tasting menu is fantastic and such good value for money. Can get a little loud, when people get raucous with the acoustics and music, so maybe not the place to go if you're looking for a quiet dinner with deep conversation. Overall an awesome joint, wicked and friendly service, fantastic food and fun times

Essen Restaurant


Olivia dined on Wed, 6th May 2015 (8)

Lovely authentic German atmosphere, fantastic European beers and genuine German cuisine that reminds me of dinner with German grandma!

Playa Tulum


Olivia dined on Sat, 14th Mar 2015 (7)

Wouldn't recommend for lunch... as you can't get a margarita before 5pm on a weekend, plus some other dishes on the menu as they seem to have a skeleton staff during the day.... meaning service is rather absent minded. That said, the food they CAN serve is delicious and the wine on offer is solid.
