Dumpling night is my favourite. Tiny hole-in-the-wall but they do great dumplings!



Natalie dined on Sat, 26th May 2018 (10)

OMG the pasta. Seriously the best in Sydney. Hand made, weekly special. Always amazing. Take a girlfriend for a date or a group of friends. Can't wait to go back!

Fratelli Fresh Walsh Bay

Sydney CBD

Natalie dined on Fri, 27th Apr 2018 (9)

We took advantage of the 50% off food bill and had a fantastic lunch. Lots of food, all very delicious. Staff were accommodating (although one girl was very snappy) but overall enjoyed thoroughly. Can't wait to come back!

Establishment Bar


Natalie dined on Mon, 5th Feb 2018 (9)

Perfect for a casual business lunch, the outdoor area is lovely to sit in and the menu literally has something for everyone - all is delish. I'll keep coming back.

Hunter & Barrel - Cockle Bay

Sydney CBD

Natalie dined on Wed, 31st Jan 2018 (9)

We came for the light lunch $25 and all of us loved our meals. Chicken parma was amazing! Lamb pockets were delish and the steak was perfect. Nice big cut chips and decent side salad. Definitely be back.

King Street Brewhouse

Sydney CBD

Natalie dined on Fri, 21st Apr 2017 (9)

Shame it's closing for renovations but looking forward to what's it will turn into. Food is great, awesome outside area. Won't comment on the grose toilets as they'll be gone soon. See you all in a few months!!

Crane Bar Sydney

Potts Point

Natalie dined on Wed, 23rd Nov 2016 (10)

Muum Maam


Natalie dined on Tue, 8th Nov 2016 (10)

Ducked out of work for lunch today with a group. LOVED IT. Food was super tasty and in well priced. Service was delightful, smiley and attentive - our waiter even took photos for us (they were good too). I will most definitely be back as often as I can. Keep it up!

King Street Brewhouse

Sydney CBD

Natalie dined on Sun, 6th Nov 2016 (9)

Great for groups, big long tables and lots of food choices. Order and pay at the bar with table service which is perfect for large parties. We had a great time. Only thing that needs attention - the toilets are disgusting.

Vino E Cucina


Natalie dined on Wed, 5th Oct 2016 (9)

Firs time last night, was lovely little courtyard outside and the service was great. We had the meatballs (YUM), the parpadalle ragu (delish) and the fish (nice) to share. Left stuffed and happy. Can't wait to come back for the all you can eat pizza night - they looked so good coming out of the pizza oven!

Lovely by the water at Barangaroo. Share plates/

bills in surry hills

Surry Hills

Natalie dined on Mon, 19th Sep 2016 (9)

Bills was delicious for dinner. I know it's traditionally a breakfast venue but we thought we'd try it for dinner and was totally impressed. Ordered gow gee, whole snapper, short ribs and Asian greens. All were sensational! Full of flavour, nice big servings. The chef even passed on some notes as to what was in the rib sauce when I asked! So nice :) Service from Anna and Jane was friendly and attentive. Perfect date night thanks guys!!


Sydney CBD

Natalie dined on Thu, 1st Sep 2016 (8)

We had a small table for a work dinner. Wanted to try something totally different. Venue is gorgeous, surrounded by pretty textures and the smell of spices. Service was perfect, staff took control of the ordering and knew their stuff. We had a selection of dishes, some we chose the rest they added in to make a 'feast'. Barramundi was outstanding, pork belly curry was outstanding, paratha and raita were outstanding. Could take-or-leave the cured salmon, hopper and the dosa. Overall we all loved it.



Natalie dined on Wed, 20th Jul 2016 (9)

Tiny little delicious Casoni. The menu is as big as their kitchen but I think it's better to do a few things really well. Go for the pasta, don't bother with the steak. They make their own pasta in house and it's silky and warming on a rainy night. We had Octopus (soft and tender, quite salty though), beef carpaccio (yum), steak with salsa verde (nice), parpadalle bolognaise (delicious) and a shot of limoncello (home made and amazing). Service was perfect. Can't wait to go back and try the rest of the menu!

Meat District Co.

Darling Harbour

Natalie dined on Fri, 29th Apr 2016 (8)

GREAT place for a casual business lunch and wonderful long table for a group. We come back again and again.

House of Crabs


Natalie dined on Sat, 19th Mar 2016 (9)

Wow this is something totally different. YOU GET MESSY so don't bring a first date, bring a group of mates and feast on steaming bags of crabs, prawns and sides. It's all delicious YUM will be back.

Nepalese Kitchen

Surry Hills

Natalie dined on Thu, 28th Jan 2016 (9)

ive been coming here for years. you cant go past the goat curry and green beans in coconut... this time the momos werent as good as usual so hoping its a one-off thing. byo is a plus.

Flour Eggs Water on Crown street

Surry Hills

Natalie dined on Mon, 25th Jan 2016 (9)

We came with a group so tried many dishes and shared. Appears some menu items change but the faves stay. You MUST get the meatballs (amazing) the seafood stew (can't recall the Italian name, seems to be new to the menu), the raspberry cocktail was sweet and tingly, gnocchi was outstanding (velvety perfection) and the oysters fresh. Can take-or-leave the squid (fried meh) and the pork fingers were tasty but a bit dry because the sauce wasn't really dippy enough. Service was great and the bill was reasonable, we were all stuffed and happy. Will go back for those meatballs alone!

Lemongrass Thai on Chevron

Surfers Paradise

Natalie dined on Wed, 30th Dec 2015 (8)

We were visiting the GC and found Lemongrass Thai close to us. Quickly read some reviews that sounded good so booked in, turned out to be a good choice. - Steamed dimsum - amazing! - Tom yum soup - delicious but a bit small (I like to dunk my rice and make it a meal) - Coconut prawn entrée - bland and dry - Duck pancakes - delicious Service was good and nice big tables outside. Would definitely go again.

Mejico Pitt St CBD

Sydney CBD

Natalie dined on Tue, 1st Dec 2015 (9)

Food was delicious and our waitress was awesome. Lamb was delightful as were the corn pops, salmon and the stand out was the watermelon salad. Can't wait to come back.

Little Rumour

Sydney CBD

Natalie dined on Fri, 6th Nov 2015 (9)

Little Rumour is hidden away under some offices, it's very much your 'cheap and cheerful' lunch or dinner with a mate or two. GREAT Thai food, well priced in quirky underground venue. Only downsides it was hot (apparently air con will be fixed soon) and the bathrooms are pretty grose. Will be back for the food for sure!

Goldfish Hunter Valley


Natalie dined on Sun, 11th Oct 2015 (5)

The weather wasn't great for our visit so atmosphere was a bit dead. I can imagine on a busy day it'd be great. I'll def try again

Margan Restaurant Hunter Valley


Natalie dined on Sun, 11th Oct 2015 (10)

Amazing! This is one of the best dining experiences I can remember. Entrée prawn and pork belly - both stunning. Main - lamb and dory and both were divine. Colourful and perfectly presented, produce was fresh and flavours delicate. We had two entrée, two main, shared dessert, bottle of rose and two dessert wines for $200. Service with a smile and lovely setting overlooking the property. Already planning to go back

Fort Denison

Sydney CBD

Natalie dined on Sat, 3rd Oct 2015 (10)

I booked this for a birthday with high expectations. We were not disappointed. Food, service and view were perfect. Stand out dishes were the salmon, beef tartare and carpaccio - AMAZING. The linguine with crab was lovely but not as impressive as the others. Our waiter was hilarious, kept us all in fits of laughter and with a perfect view and weather it was up there with one of the best experiences ever. We will be back.

The Hill Eatery


Natalie dined on Tue, 8th Sep 2015 (3)

Mixed feelings. We accidently came on 'locals night' thankfully as some mains were $20 instead of $27. Scallops were the size of a 10c piece and the lamb was so chewy we could barely get through it. Mulloway was lovely but how you can charge $27 for one piece of fish and sell it as a share plate I don't know. Cute venue, good service but won't be back unfortunately.

Meat District Co.

Darling Harbour

Natalie dined on Fri, 7th Aug 2015 (8)

Fantastic burger bar in the CBD perfect for business lunch or friendly catchup. It is very over priced but it's delicious and view is great. We come here often.

Good pub food

Mordeo Bistro & Bar

Sydney CBD

Natalie dined on Tue, 7th Jul 2015 (9)

Mordeo is fantastic. Perfect city location for a business lunch, not too noisy, indoor/outdoor makes it perfect for any occasion. Great service and a fantastic menu!
