Saint George

Cosy, intimate dining area with a large communal table. Service was attentive. Food was plated beautifully with decent portion size for mains.

Solander Dining and Bar

Sydney CBD

clara dined on Thu, 11th Jul 2019 (9)

Lovely intimate ambience for a hotel restaurant. The native Australian menu had a lot of variety to choose from. The beef fillet and charred bugs were our highlights.

Kobe Jones Sydney

Darling Harbour

clara dined on Wed, 23rd Jan 2019 (8)

Must have the flaming number 1 special. Sushi and sashimi also quite fresh. Great deal to dine at half off, but at full price would consider going else where as the dishes are quite small size. Attentive service.

Muum Maam


clara dined on Sat, 29th Dec 2018 (8)

Extensive thai menu, waiters helpful in advising on the spice level for each dish. Recommend the Betel leaves and curries.

The Garden


clara dined on Sun, 25th Nov 2018 (8)

Very nice seating area. Service is very good. Would be back more often if there is a larger menu or more variety

Cook & Archies

Surry Hills

clara dined on Sat, 11th Aug 2018 (9)

Great spot for brunch - mix of savoury and sweet items on the menu. They also serve coffee in a cone. Food came out quite quickly.

Salt Meats Cheese- Circular Quay

Circular Quay

clara dined on Fri, 10th Aug 2018 (9)

Loved the pizzas and pastas here - very fresh. Friendly service. Great restaurant in the more touristy side of town.

The Butler Potts Point

Potts Point

clara dined on Fri, 20th Jul 2018 (8)

We were seated in the outdoor area of the restaurant. It was winter but they had heating and blankets so it was not very cold. Interesting cocktail menu, lovely decor and view of the CBD. Food is share plate style - highlight was the empanadas. Quick and friendly service.


Sydney CBD

clara dined on Tue, 17th Jul 2018 (9)

Dined here with 50% off food dimmi deal. The restaurant is in the lobby level of the hotel. It felt a bit exposed walking in from the lobby, but once seated felt quite cozy . Food was top quality and beautifully plated. Service was attentive and friendly. Must try the burrata cheese, scallops and matcha lava tart. We also were treated with complimentary chocolates at end of the meal which topped off our experience.

Butcher and the Farmer

Forest Lodge

clara dined on Thu, 12th Jul 2018 (8)

Cosy atmosphere in the tramsheds building. The food was fresh and good quality. Service a bit slow - waited 20 minutes before entrees were served. Wait staff a bit inattentive at times.

The Song Kitchen

Surry Hills

clara dined on Fri, 29th Jun 2018 (8)

Cosy atmosphere with candlelight dinner on table. Quick service and decent portioned food.

Q dining

Circular Quay

Great views of the harbour, quick and friendly service. Good quality food served including bread and complimentary appetiser.

Chat Thai Circular Quay

Sydney CBD

clara dined on Fri, 27th Apr 2018 (7)

An extensive menu of thai food. Fast friendly service. We ordered a few dishes that were a bit too chilli for our tastes but we were able to wash it down with delicious fruit drinks. Good for a casual catch up with friends.

Mordeo Bistro & Bar

Sydney CBD

clara dined on Fri, 2nd Feb 2018 (8)

I really enjoyed the pizza here the dough was fresh and could taste the wood fire. Is quite busy here on a Friday night with drinks in the bar area. Staff were friendly and provided quick service.


Surry Hills

clara dined on Thu, 18th Jan 2018 (7)

Dined here on 50% off food with dimmi. The restaurant is small, and seating felt a bit cramped. The food was good and service quick. Favourite is the baklava ice cream. Would return if it appears as a special again.

Deckhouse Woolwich


clara dined on Sun, 7th Jan 2018 (7)

The deckhouse restaurant has great views over Sydney harbour bridge and the water. Unfortunately we dined here when it was a really hot day - although the waiters informed us the air conditioning was at its peak capacity it did not cool us down. We spent most of the time fanning ourselves with menus, but the waiters were quick to top us up with cold water throughout lunch. Tried the steak - cooked medium well with truffle butter. The fish and chips were also quite good.

Bare Grill on Bourke

Surry Hills

clara dined on Tue, 19th Dec 2017 (7)

A casual place to have burgers, steak, ribs and such fried foods. We came here to try the raclette - extra $7 to add to a burger extra. Given burgers were $14-$17 this was quite pricey for an extra. When the cheese came melted at the table it was entertaining to watch and delicious to eat. Worth a try.

Fratelli Fresh Westfield Sydney

Sydney CBD

clara dined on Sat, 28th Oct 2017 (7)

The food here is decent - we tried a mix of pizza and pasta to share. Banoffee pie dessert was a highlight. The service was a bit slow particularly with topping up table water whilst it was a Saturday night the restaurant was not particularly busy and we would have expected faster service for this.

The Emporium Parramatta


clara dined on Wed, 18th Oct 2017 (6)

The pasta was delicious - al dente with fresh ingredients. Would be better if the menu had more options for hot food. Service was fast

Capriccio Osteria


clara dined on Tue, 26th Sep 2017 (4)

We dined here with 50% off food deal from dimmi, with purchase of a drink (of which we used to buy a bottle of wine to share). Cosy, clean atmosphere. Service was friendly and fast, unfortunately the food was a let down. The pasta dishes had very good texture, but lack of flavour. The cauliflower dish was average, lamb ribs were good (but a bit of a fatty cut).

Food Society


clara dined on Fri, 13th Jan 2017 (7)

We dined on a Friday night - so restaurant was busy, so we had to actively get staff attention to order, etc. Food was tasty - would recommend the feta, cured meats plate. Would return back on the 50% off food deal.

Mad Pizza e Bar Surry Hills

Surry Hills

clara dined on Fri, 16th Dec 2016 (7)

Decent range of pizzas on the menu - all made with super thin crust. Service was fast and friendly. Drinks were also nice. We went on a Friday night and they had a DJ playing in the restaurant. Overall would recommend as a place for casual catch up with friends.

Unico Ristorante

Five Dock

clara dined on Thu, 24th Nov 2016 (7)

Food took a long time to come out even though it was a quiet night with only another table there. however friendly service

Sushi Tei

Sydney CBD

clara dined on Wed, 28th Sep 2016 (7)

good assortment of sushi and other Japanese food on the menu e.g noodles, salads. food was fresh. service could have been more attentive e.g. when refilling table water


Rose Bay

clara dined on Fri, 23rd Sep 2016 (7)

Restaurant with great harbour side views and lots of sunshine. The food was tasty and fresh - tried 2 seafood dishes, both were beautifully plated. Friendly service. A place recommended for fancy lunch such as special occasion or business

Fratelli Fresh Bridge Street

Sydney CBD

clara dined on Fri, 26th Aug 2016 (7)

Tasty and fresh Italian food in basement setting. Would recommend zucchini flowers and pizza. The service was a bit inattentive we had to actively get the attention of staff working there. We were also sat in an awkward table with high stools which was uncomfortable for most of the time. Other than those points would have been a pleasant dining experience as food was delicious.

Subsolo Spanish Restaurant & Bar

Sydney CBD

clara dined on Sat, 25th Jun 2016 (7)

Came here for a celebration dinner. the restaurant has dimly lit ambience and tasty tapas. pricier than other places but food quality was great. good service although sometimes we had to search for wait staff before catching their attention


Sydney CBD

food was a bit above average, but price is definitely higher than most places. nothing too special. nice clean spacious dining area


Surry Hills

clara dined on Sun, 6th Mar 2016 (6)

service was friendly and attentive. food came out quickly. however we were seated in a cramped area near the bathrooms, so was not very pleasant. food was tasty, we were charged a Sunday surcharge which I'm pretty sure is not legal. they're known for custom coffee here but did not find it to our taste as it was quite bitter

Criniti's Darling Harbour

Darling Harbour

clara dined on Wed, 16th Dec 2015 (6)

Service here is terrible. We had to go to great lengths to get attention of staff. We noticed on several occasions staff had seen us but had deliberately chosen to walk the other way or ignore us completely. Don't bother with mocktails at $12 each it just tastes like juice from the bottle with a decorative fruit on top. 1M long pizza is tasty and great for groups, for novelty factor and group dining I would recommend this pizza.
