Sandringham Hotel


Dale dined on Sat, 19th May 2018 (9)

We were running late and I rang to explain and Zac said as long as we made it before kitchen closed all would be fine. We just made it - 10 minutes before kitchen close. All the staff were friendly and accommodating which made for a really easy atmosphere. Whilst the meals are not “fine dining” they are good meals at a reasonable price.

Kri Kri

Melbourne CBD

Dale dined on Wed, 24th Jan 2018 (9)

The food was very tasty. As we were pre theatre, we were in a hurry and the service was fast to accomodate this. The mezzo are generous in portions. Would certainly recommend Kri Kri to friends.

Sazio Restaurant

Black Rock

Dale dined on Sat, 30th Dec 2017 (8)

A little disorganised this time. Hadnt checked online bookings and whilst we got a table because they weren’t super busy, it could’ve been very different.

Le Cinque Terre


Dale dined on Sat, 12th Aug 2017 (6)

We had the buffet meal. I felt that they could do more to showcase their tapas plates. It just didn't seem as great as the first time we went.



Dale dined on Sun, 30th Apr 2017 (9)

The service and the meal were good. It was certainly nice to find a good restaurant in the area. The atmosphere was nice with the log fire burning. It was quite quiet, but it was Sunday lunch, but this was good for chatting.

Windows on the Bay


Dale dined on Sat, 25th Mar 2017 (9)

The restaurant is light and bright. Quite a good atmosphere buzz. All the staff are cheery and welcoming.

Vincent's Cafe Restaurant


Dale dined on Sat, 21st Jan 2017 (9)

Duck was good, as usual. Crispy skin and falling off the bone. Seafood kebabs well cooked and tasty.

Windows on the Bay


Dale dined on Tue, 6th Dec 2016 (10)

Great views, delicious food, excellent service

Vincent's Cafe Restaurant


Dale dined on Sat, 5th Nov 2016 (9)

Food was good, as usual. The girls were good, as usual. A good evening.

Vincent's Cafe Restaurant


Dale dined on Sat, 24th Sep 2016 (8)

My pan fried salmon was delicious. Unfortunately the duck my husband ordered was not cooked well and instead of falling off the bone was dry and a little tough. It is unusual for the duck to be like this, so we will forgive them, but hope they take note of our quiet criticism.

Sails on the Bay


Dale dined on Fri, 26th Aug 2016 (10)

Great views. Elegant menu. Friendly, but unobtrusive, efficient staff.

Vincent's Cafe Restaurant


Dale dined on Wed, 3rd Aug 2016 (9)

The girls are lovely and the food is tasty and well presented. A great meal at a great price.

Windows on the Bay


Dale dined on Sat, 23rd Jul 2016 (10)

Not having been to Windows for several years, due to not having the best experience with the previous owners running down it down, we decided to give it another chance. This recent visit was based on a recommendation from an acquaintance. What a marvellous turnaround. From the enthusiastic welcome, the efficiency and friendliness of staff, the absolutely delicious meal and wine, through to the final goodbyes, it was a perfect evening. I will absolutely return and won't hesitate to highly recommend Windows to everyone.

Vincent's Cafe Restaurant


Dale dined on Sat, 19th Dec 2015 (9)

Food is of excellent quality. Meals are well presented, flavoursome and great value for money. Vincent's is a place that is consistently good in terms of service and meals. The pizza pasta cheap eats are great and the specials and higher cost meals are always well flavoured, well presented and delicious.

True South

Black Rock

Dale dined on Tue, 24th Nov 2015 (9)

I found the food very tasty. A wide variety of dishes, all delicious. Our waitress, Kiera(?), was great in selecting a wide variety of dishes for us to try. I will definitely go back.
