Balcon By Tapavino

Sydney CBD

Ian dined on Thu, 5th Sep 2019 (9)

Used 30% Fork deal, but well worth it full price and the service was great, food fresh and innovative, good sized portions. The wine list is immense, takes a bit of deciphering but really quality world wines at reasonable prices. The terrace looks really cool, we were indoors but will book terrace next time and obviously will be back.

Solander Dining and Bar

Sydney CBD

Ian dined on Sat, 3rd Aug 2019 (9)

Used the Fork special 50% but would pay full freight all day. Service was great, Luca was a really fantastic waiter and the food was superb. Will definitely be back.



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

Interesting menu, good choices of banquet style options and a la carte. Food was great and staff very efficient and pleasant. Quiet when we were there (early) but was livening up as we left. Worth a visit.

Bistro Rex

Potts Point

Ian dined on Sun, 16th Jun 2019 (10)

Great staff, lovely food, really pleased I followed up on a recommendation.



Ian dined on Sat, 27th Apr 2019 (9)

Great food, creative menu, fantastic staff and really great personal approach from owner/head chef to ask all in the restaurant personally how things were and nice to see that as most wouldn’t bother. 👍🏻

Kobe Jones Sydney

Darling Harbour

Ian dined on Fri, 18th Jan 2019 (9)

The Fork 50% off food deal was a great Friday night bargain, hence 10/10 scored for value, full price would have worked out pricey for a casual visit but for a special occasion still ok. The food was a work of art and really nice, the service was great and fast. Will be back.

Monopole Sydney

Potts Point

Ian dined on Sat, 20th Oct 2018 (9)

Great funky space, good food and friendly knowledgeable staff. Well worth a visit and I’ll be back.

Riley St Garage


Ian dined on Mon, 16th Jul 2018 (9)

Used the 50% deal with Dimmi so great value. Been before and paid full price and will always come back, great food, drinks and service.

Riley St Garage


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

Not a cheapie but a goodie, great food, excellent service, cool setting. Had the mid range banquet, $85 per person, really good selection and I don’t normally do dessert but, very nice dessert platter for two. Will be back with friends.

The Riverview Hotel


Ian dined on Wed, 4th Apr 2018 (9)

Great food and service, been before and will come back. The Riverview covers many bases, but fine pub dining probably sums it up best, small but very good menu. Had the pork chop and steak, really good.

Tokyo Laundry


Ian dined on Sat, 24th Mar 2018 (9)

It was early and the restaurant was quiet, hence the lack of atmosphere, but, great decor, typical Japanese style service, very efficient and no nonsense. The food was well priced and a work of art as well as tasty and beautifully presented. I will definitely come back with a larger group and make a night of it.

Butcher and the Farmer

Forest Lodge

Ian dined on Sun, 18th Mar 2018 (9)

Really good breakfast menu, fresh, tasty and well cooked and served. For a special brekky or lunch it’s well worth a visit.

The Riverview Hotel


Ian dined on Mon, 12th Mar 2018 (9)

Used the Dimmi 50% voucher, had the lamb shoulder, would have been good value at full price to be honest. The solo waiter was very good, efficient and helpful. Great food upstairs in the restaurant, the location serves to cater for all needs, definitely will be back.

The Glebe Hotel


Ian dined on Wed, 14th Feb 2018 (9)

Fine pub dining is how I would describe this place, the food was great, the service was excellent and I can thoroughly recommend the Australian Youth Hotel. Don't be put off by the front of house, it goes from a bit of a no frills Glebe pub, to a fantastic back room restaurant. Been here 5 times and will always come back.

Copo Cafe Diner


Ian dined on Sat, 8th Jul 2017 (9)

Used Dimmi $20 reward , good food, live music great staff. Five minutes from home and will always go back, great breakfast by the way.

The Boathouse on Blackwattle Bay


Ian dined on Sat, 17th Jun 2017 (9)

Great location, good food and excellent service. Bit pricey but quality, staff and location can account for that.

The Glebe Hotel


Ian dined on Thu, 8th Jun 2017 (9)

Would have been $70-$80 per person, but had the Dimmi 50% off voucher, great meal, superb staff, will always go back and been numerous times before. Don't be fooled by the less than flash front of house, the dining area in the back is brilliant.

Old City Kitchen & Bar


Ian dined on Thu, 13th Apr 2017 (9)

Used the Dimmi 50% deal, great service, owners/managers were very friendly and the staff were excellent. Had the vegetarian banquet, the food was great, glad I went veggie because if it was the meat choice of banquet it wouldn't have been close to getting finished, the food just kept on coming, as it was we couldn't finish the meal. Give it a go.

The Gantry Restaurant

Sydney CBD

Ian dined on Sat, 25th Mar 2017 (10)

Great service, excellent food, staff very friendly and efficient, superb location. No complaints see you soon.

Copo Cafe Diner


Ian dined on Thu, 23rd Mar 2017 (8)

Two minutes from home makes it a good optio for us, unusual dinner menu of South American style tapas, nice food though, the Autumn special of buy four tapas and get a jug of sangria or bottle of wine free is good. Used Dimmi voucher with no hassle. Recommend brekky/brunch menu. Will always go back.

Fish & Co

Forest Lodge

Ian dined on Sat, 18th Mar 2017 (9)

Great food, friendly staff, good service. Food was a bit pricey, but as I said good quality, great drinks list, really good bartender. All in all not cheap eats but fantastic setting amongst the other places in the Tramsheds, will go back.

Delhi 'O' Delhi


Ian dined on Sat, 18th Feb 2017 (9)

Used Dimmi $20 voucher so it took the bill down significantly, quality and service aexcellent. Will always go back.

British Hotel

North Adelaide

Ian dined on Tue, 14th Feb 2017 (8)

Food was great, bit small but great quality, really nice flavours and cooked as requested. Staff were very "Adelaide" really polite and helpful without being in your face, I live in Sydney btw. When I come back to Adelaide I'll probably swing by again.

d'Arry's Verandah

Mclaren Vale

Ian dined on Sun, 12th Feb 2017 (10)

The food was superb, the service was excellent, the wine list was fantastic (driving unfortunately) also very reasonable if you select from the current vintage list and all wines available by the glass. Scallop entree and kangaroo main were faultless. Will go back.

The Glebe Hotel


Ian dined on Thu, 15th Sep 2016 (10)

Used the midweek 50% deal, but would happily pay full price and have done before. Don't be fooled by the front of house, it's an old pub, but the restaurant out back is great. Food is top notch fine pub grub, the service is casual but great. Will always go back.



Ian dined on Sat, 10th Sep 2016 (7)

Not a bad night, staff were very friendly and efficient, food was ok but rather pricey for cafe style menu.

Copo Cafe Diner


Ian dined on Fri, 1st Jul 2016 (9)

Yet again Copo delivered on a last minute, good food, late decision dinner. Brazilian style tapas menu is good and reasonably priced, staff are great, attentive but not annoying. Only a five minute walk from home so neighbourhood gem.

Delhi 'O' Delhi


Ian dined on Fri, 17th Jun 2016 (9)

Good quality food, great staff, not a cheap way but if you love an up market Indian then give it a go.

Copo Cafe Diner


Ian dined on Sat, 7th May 2016 (9)

Easy local for us, always friendly staff and really good quality food. Will always go back.

Copo Cafe Diner


Ian dined on Sat, 16th Apr 2016 (9)

Local eatery, great staff, Saturday night is a tapas menu with a Brazilian type theme. Good sized tapas plates and good food. As its a two minute walk from home we'll always come back.

The Glebe Hotel


Ian dined on Thu, 7th Apr 2016 (9)

Absolute gem hidden out in the back of what looks like an average pub, but the restaurant is really cool and quite upmarket without being too formal. Great food, service was really good and worth a good tip. Highly recommended for midweek eats or a celebratory dinner at the weekend.

Cafe Del Mar

Darling Harbour

Ian dined on Sat, 26th Mar 2016 (9)

Good food and plenty of it, great location and views especially of the nine pm fireworks in the harbour. Staff were really attentive without being to much, will definitely go again.

Pony Dining The Rocks

The Rocks

Ian dined on Thu, 25th Feb 2016 (9)

For a special occasion, (family member from overseas), it was a great setting, the food was excellent, drinks also, the entrees were beautiful, but a bit small, the mains were fantastic, the Flat Iron Steak was probably the best steak I have ever had. In short, I didn't pay the bill, but it was a bit pricey but overall well worth it. Would definitely recommend to others.

Georges Mediterranean Bar & Grill

Sydney CBD

Ian dined on Sun, 10th Jan 2016 (9)

Had the lounge banquet go four persons, $32 per head, lots of food, great quality, definitely go again and have the same for lunch. Good venue and good value.

Newmarket Hotel

St Kilda

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

Great venue, great service but very very busy at the xmas time of year so service was stretched. Good quality food, great cocktails but at busy times don't expect to be in and out in an hour, enjoy the atmosphere and venue. Would go again, on a visit to Melbourne.
