Rubyos

Newtown

Nathalie dined on Sat, 8th Dec 2018 (9)

Really good service and beautiful share plates. We had the French beans, Angus rump (lovely flavour but a little chewy), haloumi and chat potatoes. Next time I think I will be a bit more adventurous in my selection. Will definitely be returning.

The service! The views! The amazing food and beautiful wines! Everything is perfect. The staff go out of their way to cater to any special requests... this is my new favourite restaurant in the east.

Came here on a special evening with my daughter and we loved it! I had the pappardelle ragu and she has the pici and both were beautiful. The wines here are exceptional and the service is perfect. Will definitely be back!

Tried the octopus main for the first time and wow! It’s lovely and the service and presentation of everything cannot be faulted. My daughter has an egg intolerance so the kitchen went out of their way to create a customised dessert for her. Love this place so much ❤️

Chat Thai Circular Quay

Love the seafood crepes here. Generous and affordable and very delicious!

Nathalie dined on Wed, 31st Oct 2018 (9)

This is the perfect venue for a special occasion. If you love your French champagne and oysters and seafood and value excellent service, I can’t recommend the Nielsen highly enough. It’s worth having a look at the dessert menu too ... the tart and profiteroles are pretty special.

Mad Pizza e Bar Bondi Beach

Bondi

Nathalie dined on Thu, 25th Oct 2018 (10)

A lovely welcoming venue with top shelf pizza. Wine list could be more appealing ...

What a beautiful venue for a special occasion! The attention to detail with every dish is impeccable. The kids menu has generous portions. It was my daughter’s birthday and the lovely staff made a fuss of her with candles and a special dessert. Will be recommending this venue!

Chat Thai Circular Quay

Nathalie dined on Tue, 16th Oct 2018 (9)

The food here is so amazing by wow, soooo hot! Unless you are very hardened I’d ask for mild. I couldn’t finish my dish because I was crying and my nose was running! Love the larb and papaya salads here ... the wine by the glass choice could be better.

The Nielsen

Vaucluse

Nathalie dined on Tue, 9th Oct 2018 (10)

Wow! What can I say? I came here on a 50% off food promotion and was blown away by the food and wine and service! The beef cheeks and gnocchi and barramundi were just amazing, the French rose perhaps the best I’ve ever had and I highly recommend the quinoa beetroot salad. Just wow!

Jewel on the Bay

Nathalie dined on Wed, 26th Sep 2018 (9)

Love this place ! The food is amazing (though the wine list is average and could be improved) and the service has always been exceptional however they must have been understaffed or having an off night as service was very slow and not up to its usual standard.

Mad Pizza e Bar Darlinghurst

I’ve been coming here for years and management has changed several times. The current staff are not engaging or friendly, the music is way too loud (obviously geared to them and not their clientele) though the food is probably better ... not sure I’ll be back here too soon sadly.

My friend and I ordered the palak paneer and eggplant potato curries, both divine! The fried vegetable entree was lovely too and the naan perfectly done - there was enough to take home for another meal so really good value for money. I love this place and always keep coming back.

It is difficult to fault this place. The food is wonderfully prepared and the service is impeccable. A great place to bring your children who are always made to feel not just welcome but extra special. The palak paneer is a favourite of mine and would also recommend the eggplant and potato curry.

I loved the special salad, and the tempranillo which the waiter recommended was beautiful!! Pizza is always great at this place ...

The Corner House

Bondi

Nathalie dined on Thu, 27th Jul 2017 (9)

I love this place - good to see the the wine by the glass selection is better than it was (the weakest link in my view - I recommend the Argentinian Malbec) - and I hate to criticise a place I love so much, but the ben buckler pizza which is my favourite was too cheesy with not enough prawns. Still, awesome place and my go to with the kids.

Ananas

This is the first time I had a poor meal at this restaurant. I ordered the chicken which was not cooked properly, was cold and the skin was pale. Not nice. To be fair, they were very nice about it and didn't charge ... but still. My friend had the gnocchi which she said was excellent and the vegetables were all lovely. The wine selection is good too.

Mad Pizza e Bar Darlinghurst

Darlinghurst

Nathalie dined on Mon, 5th Jun 2017 (8)

I think this place has changed hands. It is understaffed, the food is still good ... but the atmosphere is not quite what it was. I can't put my finger on it.

I just don't love this place. The Merivale restaurants are so fabulous generally... but this just doesn't hit the spot for me.

Mad Pizza e Bar Bondi Beach

Bondi

Nathalie dined on Mon, 27th Mar 2017 (9)

Great pizza, and loved the prawn, haloumi and quinoa salad. Can't fault it really... perhaps some music might have added to the ambience ...

The Corner House

Bondi

Nathalie dined on Thu, 9th Mar 2017 (9)

Seems there is a new chef, so the pizzas are different but still amazing. We ordered the kids' gnocchi which my daughters loved but the portions are just way too small and we ended up having to ordered two serves each which defeats the purpose of ordering kids' meals I think. There is a new Italian wine on the menu which is nice to see (the montepulciano) ... it's great, the wine list is really the only thing in my view that could be improved in this place. Still my go to pizza place anywhere in Sydney, just love these guys. And the house baked bread upon arrival is out of this world, and a very nice touch.

Bondi's Best

Bondi

Nathalie dined on Thu, 23rd Feb 2017 (10)

Aside from the great ambience and amazing, truly incredible food, the service is absolutely impeccable. I cannot praise this place highly enough ... and would especially recommend the oysters with ginger and shallots and the salmon main. I would happily dine here every night of the week.

the wine list could do with an upgrade, the options could be so much better ... otherwise, I absolutely love this place

Fratelli Fresh Bridge Street

Sydney CBD

Nathalie dined on Thu, 8th Dec 2016 (7)

I have always loved the Fratelli's at potts point and thought the one on macquarie street was great - but this one let the chain down I thought. The food was just ok, the atmosphere was so-so. There was a really odd smell when walking down the stairs which was quite off putting - not sure what that was about. Lovely people, but I wouldn't come back here. There are too many other great options.

The Corner House

I went with my family for the Thursday night $15 pizza special. I cannot recommend this place highly enough - the pizzas are the best I have had in a can't remember when, the service was friendly, attentive but never intrusive - the free freshly made bread to start was a nice touch and the wines were good too. This is going to be my new regular. Love love love!

I often come here and tend to go for the prawn curry - this time I tried the black lentil dahl, which was just delicious. My kids love the naan and the rice, peas and cumin dish. Lovely food and great service, this is somewhere I come regularly and have never been disappointed.

Pompei's

I am sad to say this place is not what it used to be when Tim was the manager. The pizzas are not as good, neither is the pasta. It's just ok when before it was a stand out. This is a good example example of the staff being the reason you go somewhere.

Jewel on the Bay

Rose Bay

Nathalie dined on Sat, 23rd Jul 2016 (9)

The prawn curry and the eggplant and potato curry were particular standouts on the night. The wine is good value. The service, as always, is faultless. I can't recommend this place highly enough. I have been coming here for four years fairly regularly and have never had anything other than a fantastic experience.

The Hill Eatery

I highly recommended the milk fried chicken from the large sharing plates. The slaw is also worth trying. Really good service with no hipster attitude common to the area.
