Miguels Tapas Bar

Gladesville

Steve dined on Sat, 19th Jan 2019 (4)

We must have caught this place on a bad day, service was just missing, menu items missing, zero atmosphere and uncomfortable hard seating, long wait times and salad ordered never received. Not somewhere we would return to in a hurry I'm sad to say!

Chao Ba - Chatswood

Authentic Vietnamese with great use fresh herbs and exceptionally quick service, a real genuine find in the blandness that is Chatswood.

Bistro Blackwood

Steve dined on Tue, 22nd May 2018 (10)

Mosaic

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Sat, 28th Apr 2018 (8)

Ideal centrally located restaurant upstairs at the Westin, great menu great service but no idea why it's always so quiet when I go there, should be busier!

No 1 William

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Wed, 4th Apr 2018 (6)

Interesting venue atop Australian Museum overlooking Hyde Park which is lovely and so is the lunch offerings I had seared barramundi with mash and greens but you do need to queue up to order your meal which was disappointing!

Absolutely fantastic cuisine both innovative and flavoursome with exceptional service from the floor staff especially Virginie just amazing!

Temple of Tastes

Palm Cove

Steve dined on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 (9)

Far North Queensland at its very best, great food, great service from George and his team and dining outdoors undercover with torrential tropical rain storm poring down all around us.

Nu Nu Restaurant

Steve dined on Sun, 25th Mar 2018 (10)

Exquisite tapas style offering as part of the menu, innovative, tasty with so many flavours and right on the beach too!

Cafe Opera

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Fri, 23rd Mar 2018 (8)

Great lunchtime buffet offering good variety, maybe this concept is getting somewhat tired now though.

Ribs and Rumps North Ryde

Macquarie Park

Steve dined on Wed, 21st Mar 2018 (9)

Great to see good staff like Dillon and Toby providing an A++ level of service at this particular R&R outlet, there should be more like them.

La Pesa Trattoria

Darlinghurst

Steve dined on Tue, 20th Mar 2018 (9)

Fantastic 50% off Dimmi offer made these excellent little eatery just off oxford street even more special. Great pasta dishes and delightful tiramisu for dessert.

The Arch Cafe

Darlinghurst

Steve dined on Wed, 7th Mar 2018 (8)

Great little place with a superb verandah for sitting out sipping latte and watching the world go by while enjoying a light lunch.

Percy's Bar & Kitchen

Orange

Steve dined on Mon, 26th Feb 2018 (7)

Great little corner eatery with good food but a shame that you need to order at the bar.

Olio Kensington Street

Chippendale

Steve dined on Sun, 11th Feb 2018 (10)

Now this is a fine restaurant offering Sicilian cuisine at the highest standards and with exquisite flavours and presentation not to mention the oh so professional service. Well done guys we will be back here very soon.

Bistro On3

Broadbeach

Steve dined on Wed, 31st Jan 2018 (6)

Exquisite food on offer but sadly service appeared disinterested haphazard and unprofessional except for a yellow polo shirted pool boy who appeared to be serving at table and at poolside whilst all the black clothed waiters chatted and disengaged from serving.

Chefs Gallery Townhall

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Mon, 29th Jan 2018 (8)

Innovative Chinese restaurant offering a great picturesque menu with lighting fast service!

Mekong

Fantastic Vietnamese cuisine wth innovative entrees and attentive service and once again the great 50% off dimmi offer for January!

Urban Tadka

Terrey Hills

Steve dined on Fri, 26th Jan 2018 (6)

After many fine well served meals over the months here, we were let down on this occasion by what we were told was "a printer issue", resulting in more than a 45 minute wait fir our meals in a restaurant with only 6 people dining. Any restaurant that conveys its orders the short distance to the kitchen digitally should surely ensure that the printer in the kitchen is switched on before service commences each day.

Coco Cubano Top Ryde

Ryde

Steve dined on Wed, 24th Jan 2018 (5)

Nothing special just a mall eatery really!

Eastside Kitchen + Bar

Mekong

Steve dined on Sat, 13th Jan 2018 (9)

Wow what a great surprise to find no Spice Alley in Chippendale,filled with so many Asian restaurants all in one area, with Mekong as the shining jewel in the crown, the flavours of the food were superb, so fresh and well presented and served seamlessly all with a dimmi 50% off too wow again.

Cafe Michael 2

Adelaide CBD

Steve dined on Wed, 10th Jan 2018 (2)

So disappointing and very unappetising Thai food here, the staff appeared to have little or no empathy and the Penang beef was tasteless, dry and chewy. Not recommended at all!

A Hereford Beefstouw - Adelaide

Adelaide CBD

Steve dined on Tue, 9th Jan 2018 (7)

Using the excellent dimmi 50% offer for January made the great value and the staff tried hard, but appeared scarily robotic and heavily scripted.

The Little Hunter

Adelaide CBD

Steve dined on Mon, 8th Jan 2018 (7)

Great steaks and tremendous value for money with the dimmi January 50% off food offer but only having a single staff attending at bar, taking orders and serving food prior to 6:00pm was a mistake indeed.

The Bathers' Pavilion

Mosman

Steve dined on Sat, 6th Jan 2018 (10)

What a fantastic lunch on a busy summer Saturday with great food chosen from the 3-course degustation menu selected from the a la carte and such professional service too! Add on the 50% dimmi offer and we saved $120 just excellent all round!

Great value offer from dimmi made this a fantastic lunch for two dining on the sharing menu very attentive waiting staff too

Booth Street Bistro

Annandale

Steve dined on Sat, 16th Sep 2017 (7)

With a dimmi flash sale 50% off the value was great but the entree that we ordered was forgotten by the waiter and never arrived but the mains were fine. With only a few customers the staff appeared unprepared and ill equipped to provide anything other than a very rudimentary level of service at table.

The Cuban Place

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Wed, 13th Sep 2017 (7)

Great venue food food but sadly service slow and often non existent

Catch Restaurant - Hilton Surfers Paradise

Surfers Paradise

Steve dined on Tue, 12th Sep 2017 (3)

What a disappointment, staff were nowhere to be found on arrival at 6:00pm they all just wandered in en masses about 6:10pm then chatted to each other had their backs to the restaurant and focussed attention on themselves and the computer. It says that this is a Luke Mangan inspired restaurant has he ever eaten here and seen what's happening, a Hilton hotel restaurant inspired by him should be better.

Patagonian Toothfish

Ribs and Rumps Parramatta

Very busy when we dined here on Sunday arvo but the burgers were good and the chips are always great at any RnR place.

The Arch Cafe

Darlinghurst

Steve dined on Wed, 2nd Aug 2017 (9)

Great little Italian eatery offering some fantastic pasta dishes, very reasonably priced and so fresh and hot with plenty of Parmesan too on the side, really good!

Das Bierhaus

Mona Vale

Steve dined on Sat, 29th Jul 2017 (3)

Disappointing in so many ways due mostly to the staff and the food. On arrival we were stared at by the chef rather than acknowledged and advised that someone would be with us shortly. Having ordered three dishes, soup, prawns and goulash the prawns became mushrooms, can it really be so difficult to get the order right when the staff are using iPads at the point of ordering. The pasta type dough that came with the goulash was inedible, uncooked and cold. On departure no thank you no how was everything just a credit card machine that didn't accept Amex although point of sale material everywhere saying they did. All in all not somewhere we would return to with or without a dimmi 50% off promotion.

Platform 270

Melbourne CBD

Steve dined on Wed, 26th Jul 2017 (9)

Fabulous steak great pear dessert and all at 50% off using the dimmi July half price dining promotion wow!

The Bathers' Pavilion

Mosman

Steve dined on Fri, 14th Jul 2017 (10)

Together with the dimmi 50% off promotion this was an outstanding dining experience at a fantastic price. The service at table and food from the kitchen were exceptional and all at the highest standards throughout- fantastic and thank you!

Cafe Opera

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Thu, 13th Jul 2017 (9)

A delightful buffet lunch with good variety on offer throughout and on this occasion above average service at table.

Ananas

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Sun, 9th Jul 2017 (9)

Great dimmi offer of 50% off made this lunch even better, although both the food and service were superb anyhow!

The Bavarian Manly Wharf

Manly

Steve dined on Tue, 4th Jul 2017 (3)

What a huge disappointment this dining experience turned out to be at Bavarian at Manly last night! The service at table was an example of how not to staff a busy restaurant and illustrated how some transitory casual staff appear disinterested, unmotivated and oblivious to their surroundings. The two floor staff on duty appeared to wander haplessly a great deal and appeared unable to hear the kitchen bell signalling that food was ready to be collected from the counter and served at table. We watched as the bell was rung and re-rung by the kitchen and the floor staff wandered blindly back and forth passing the food sitting waiting to be collected time and time again. The sparkling water when ordered arrived after 20 minutes and the dessert when ordered appeared to have been forgotten to have been placed with the kitchen and we asked and saw the kitchen acknowledging the error. The strudel was prepared in lightning speed the bell rung and there it sat and sat and sat with the bell re-rung and re-rung but no-one bothered to bring it to the table, we collected it ourselves eventually. We were charged separately and additionally for ice cream although it came as included with the strudel on the menu and the GM appeared very unhappy with the DIMMI 50% off promotion that we had booked. If not for the views this would have been a total wash-out, but any restaurant that relies solely on views will be a restaurant that we at least will not return to, in Sydney, restaurants with views are not only to be found on Manly Wharf fortunately!

Steve dined on Thu, 22nd Jun 2017 (9)

Great dining event with fine food good service and all inside a fun evening old sandstone GPO building.

Feast at Sheraton on the Park

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Wed, 21st Jun 2017 (7)

This well known buffet appears to be losing its sparkle with the offerings and staff becoming tired and bored.

The Lane Sydney

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Wed, 21st Jun 2017 (9)

Great find right by the Australia Square bar area but nice and quiet and really good service and fantastic food.

Ribs and Rumps North Ryde

Macquarie Park

Steve dined on Mon, 19th Jun 2017 (4)

How can it be when we were the only customers dining in the restaurant that the 4 waiting staff can be too busy elsewhere and forget to bring both the sauce for the steak and the mustard - shocking!

Whitewater Restaurant

Manly

Steve dined on Wed, 17th May 2017 (8)

With the current 50% off with dimmi this is great value but otherwise this establishment can be a bit expensive.

Barrett's Restaurant

Magenta

Steve dined on Sat, 29th Apr 2017 (8)

A touch on the slow side to emerge from the kitchen but once arrived all very enjoyable.

Ribs and Rumps North Ryde

Macquarie Park

Steve dined on Sat, 25th Mar 2017 (6)

The staff here try their best but one or two appear to try less than their peers. Once again the staff facilitating payment struggled with the loyalty program discount and took an age to get it right, a shame!

Cafe Opera

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Wed, 22nd Mar 2017 (8)

Service at table appears to have improved considerably since our last visit and the buffet appeared well stocked and well presented again better than last time so will be back again soon!

Graffiti

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Mon, 20th Mar 2017 (8)

A cavernous dining room offering tables probably too close to each other but otherwise great food and good service, the hazelnut chocolate pudding is delicious!

In Situ

Manly

Steve dined on Mon, 13th Mar 2017 (9)

Great dimmi offer of 25% off + pizza at half price too! Great lively place offering innovative tapas and delightful waiting staff.

The Meat & Wine Co Circular Quay

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Fri, 3rd Mar 2017 (9)

Friday nights are always busy at Meat and Wine Co at Intercontinental Hotel but the service never disappoints. The steaks are always the best and the entree and desserts struggle sometimes.

Mosaic

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Thu, 2nd Mar 2017 (9)

Fine eating establishment within the Westin Hotel offering good service on this occasion.

Feast at Sheraton on the Park

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Wed, 1st Mar 2017 (6)

Disappointed with the carved meats from the buffet wth the turkey being so tough as to be inedible but the overall offering in entree and dessert appeared fine.

Ribs and Rumps North Ryde

Macquarie Park

Steve dined on Sun, 12th Feb 2017 (9)

GReat burgers on offer here as well as the usual steak and ribs offering always great friendly service here too.

The Bathers' Pavilion

Mosman

Steve dined on Thu, 19th Jan 2017 (10)

Wow what an amazing culinary experience, from the very first greeting through the exquisite meal and service through to the professional bill handling process all perfect. With the dimmi 50% off value for money is good but without the promotion a little on the high side with a $8 caffe latte.

Ananas

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Sun, 15th Jan 2017 (10)

Truly French cuisine on offer here plus very fine service in terms of speed from the kitchen and the professionalism of the guys on the floor. A hanger steak with dauphinois potatoes and asparagus + a side of string fries included, all just perfect.

Rubyos

Newtown

Steve dined on Sat, 14th Jan 2017 (7)

Innovative menu and fantastic service but just something missing in some of the dishes, maybe just missing the wow factor.

Wild Ginger Dining + Bar

The Rocks

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

Having ordered mains and waited and waited with not many in the dining room at 6pm the waiter appeared unrequested saying it shouldn't be more than 5 minutes wait now - another 20 minutes two unremarkable Thai dishes arrived good enough but not worth the wait. This place needs to increase the portions and increase the speed of cooking the dishes.

Fratelli Fresh Bridge Street

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Thu, 12th Jan 2017 (9)

Buzzing and bustling in a weekday lunchtime but offering perfectly cooked pasta, with my choice being the lamb ragu, just delightful and even better with the dimmi 50% off food promotion in January!

Asana

Brisbane CBD

Steve dined on Sun, 25th Dec 2016 (7)

Over attentive service when you don't need the staff but when you need one of the floor service, they're no where to be found. Disappointing really.

Pony Dining Eagle Street Pier

Steve dined on Sat, 24th Dec 2016 (8)

Cha Cha Char Wine Bar & Grill

Brisbane CBD

Steve dined on Thu, 1st Dec 2016 (8)

Steve dined on Tue, 29th Nov 2016 (8)

Delightful staff in this place made for a lovely meal!

On Shore Cafe Brasserie

Dee Why

Steve dined on Fri, 25th Nov 2016 (6)

Views to die for and in the late afternoon on a Friday not yet too busy but the offering is not that exciting and comes across as somewhat bland.

Ribs and Rumps Manly

Manly

Steve dined on Mon, 14th Nov 2016 (9)

This delightful 1st floor restaurant overlooks Manly beach and serves great steaks too. The staff here especially Toby are fantastic.

A. Baker

City

Steve dined on Tue, 8th Nov 2016 (7)

Breakfast menu is innovative and the food from the kitchen is delightful but why are the waiting staff so pompous and aloof? A simple request tha my second latte be a little hitter than the first provoked such a negative response in terms of his body language one would have thought that I had asked for his last dollar! Too much attitude here and not enough simple attention to getting the food and drinks from the kitchen to the customer in a timely manner and respecting the customer as being something other than an inconvenience!

Blu Ginger

City

Steve dined on Mon, 7th Nov 2016 (7)

Great curry special and the dimmi 25% off made it great value but the staff appeared quite lost and preoccupied with the phone.

Hoi Polloi Old Parliament House

Parkes

Steve dined on Mon, 7th Nov 2016 (8)

A unique setting inside Old Parliament House and great food on offer from a good menu but oh so quiet, I was the only diner.

Mobius Bar & Grill

Mascot

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

Within the new Pullman Hotel close by Sydney Airport is a real gem of a restaurant offering a really innovative menu format but most importantly great food from the kitchen, we selected the half dishes and enjoyed 4 between 2, well worth a visit.

Grazeland Bar & Grill

Crows Nest

Steve dined on Wed, 2nd Nov 2016 (7)

Great dimmi 50% off food made this an economical dinner out with great steaks and sides.

Mosaic

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Fri, 28th Oct 2016 (7)

The food is excellent but the service lets the kitchen down time after time sadly.

Ripples at Chowder Bay

Mosman

Steve dined on Mon, 17th Oct 2016 (10)

Using the Dimmi 50% off food promotion only added to what was an absolutely delightful dining experience at Chowder Bay - a must for anyone looking for a quiet dinner overlooking the sparkling Sydney Harbour!

Ribs and Rumps North Ryde

Macquarie Park

Steve dined on Sun, 16th Oct 2016 (7)

Usual R & R offering but great steaks as always however we found the service at North Ryde somewhat hit and miss.

Jpb Restaurant

Exceptional service at table and delightful menu and food on off here great meal and will be back soon.

Ribs and Rumps Sydney Olympic Park

Homebush Bay

Steve dined on Sun, 18th Sep 2016 (9)

We have been to several ribs and rumps outlets in Australia and surely this one in Sydney Olympic Park beats them all hands down for service and speed from ordering to receiving the order. Great ribs as always as expected from R & R.

Yum Yum Dining

Hardys Bay

Steve dined on Thu, 15th Sep 2016 (9)

Delightful lunch selected from an innovative menu with small and lunch options. We concentrated on seafood with an exquisite ceviche followed with prawn linguine and calamari. A must for anyone enjoying innovative dining!

Absolute Thai At The Inn

Tucked inside the Hornsby Inn is Sbsolute Thai one of a chain of Thai eateries that offer standard Thai food but with great service.

Yum Yum Dining

Fantastic seafood buffet but service does not match up to the 5-star hotel setting.

Squires Loft Docklands

Docklands

Steve dined on Fri, 19th Aug 2016 (7)

Great steaks OK service just a shame that there was a crowd of shouting swearing outside the window drinking and carrying on. Also a shame that the restaurant forgot to subtract the $20 Dimmi voucher.

Bluewater Cafe

Manly

Steve dined on Wed, 17th Aug 2016 (8)

Great to get 25% off using Dimmi and the food was good too, the table appeared to be quite dirty though which was a shame but once we'd cleaned it, it was OK.

Engage Restaurant

North Gosford

Steve dined on Sun, 14th Aug 2016 (10)

I am pleased to say that we have become quite regular at this delightful eatery in North Gosford and "unsurprisingly" once again a fine meal was enjoyed, the Greek Lamb salad is a must.

Whitewater Restaurant

Steve dined on Thu, 11th Aug 2016 (8)

Great view out to the beach plus good menu full of seafood favourites and the staff appear better than on previous visits.

Black Cow Bistro

Launceston

Another quite superb dinner at this very fine eatery - well worth a visit anytime if steak and excellent service is what you desire!

Stillwater River Cafe Restaurant & Wine Bar

Launceston

Steve dined on Sun, 7th Aug 2016 (9)

Delightful setting plus great food at breakfast, probably my best ever eggs benedict just a pity that the staff overcharged me (inadvertently) when processing the credit card, how difficult can pay pass be to get correct.

Black Cow Bistro

Launceston

Steve dined on Sat, 6th Aug 2016 (10)

Very professional operation offering exquisite steaks cooked to,perfection and served by some of the best waiting staff Tasmania has to offer. Back again tonight!

Whitewater Restaurant

Manly

Steve dined on Tue, 7th Jun 2016 (8)

A great Dimmi offer gave us 50% off our food bill, the food when it eventually appeared from the kitchen was excellent but the wait had been too long considering it was 5:30 and we were only 1 of 2 tables of 2 occupied.

Whitewater Restaurant

Beach Almond

Palm Cove

Steve dined on Thu, 24th Mar 2016 (9)

Situated right on the beach at Palm Cove this simple looking eatery with simple plastic chairs surprised with finely cooked seafood with an Asian twist, well worth a visit. At least the screaming children on the adjacent table left prior to our meals arriving, a relief indeed!

Temple of Tastes

Steve dined on Wed, 23rd Mar 2016 (7)

Good food good service but the air con just doesn't do the job well enough!

Nu Nu Restaurant

Palm Cove

Steve dined on Wed, 23rd Mar 2016 (10)

We were warmly welcomed and seated by Jeremy who very professionally looked after us for what one can only describe as a near perfect dining experience. With the wind blowing off the ocean just a few steps from our table we enjoyed what the menu described as titbits for lunch including oysters, prawns, quail and brioche. Thanks NuNu and Jeremy we will see you again!

Lime & Pepper

Barrett's Restaurant

Magenta

Steve dined on Sun, 28th Feb 2016 (6)

This Pullmam Hitel restaurant offers fine food but sadly the service does not match the offerings from the kitchen. The staff vanish for long periods of time and trying to pay the bill is a struggle too - they need to do better!

Perfect evening watching the sunset eating great food and experiencing superb service just perfect.

Barrett's Restaurant

Magenta

Steve dined on Sun, 13th Sep 2015 (7)

Great food comes out of the kitchen, innovative, well presented and tasty. The waiting staff whilst friendly could do with some more hands on deck to ensure that when the chef rings the bell with the food ready and waiting, there's a staff available to serve it in a timely manner.

Mumu Grill

Crows Nest

Steve dined on Sun, 16th Aug 2015 (6)

This place appears to have slipped a bit in terms of attentive service and I was surprised to see the waiting staff who served us could seen sucking on a lollipop whenever she was back behind the bar or she thought that no one could see her. A shame because this place always used to be so good and used to have a real buzz about it.

Barrett's Restaurant

Magenta

Steve dined on Sun, 12th Jul 2015 (6)

The food coming out of the kitchen is of the very highest standards but oh dear why does it take so very long to appear. From ordering to receiving the mains ( no entrees ordered ) was 40 minutes and apart from us there were only 6 other diners in 3 tables of 2 and one table had already got their mains before we arrived.

Steel Bar & Grill

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Thu, 11th Jun 2015 (10)

Great staff great steaks and great value what more can you ask for from an eating establishment in the Sydney CBD!

Garden Court Restaurant

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Sat, 30th May 2015 (6)

When the food hits the table the flavours and textures are the best but sadly the disorganisation so visible in the open kitchen means it takes too long to get to the table. The waiting staff especially Claude try their very best but on this occasion the chefs let the restaurant down.

Barrett's Restaurant

Magenta

Steve dined on Sat, 23rd May 2015 (6)

Great menu and great food coming out of the kitchen but oh no the floor staff in the restaurant were just missing in action most of the time. They would reappear sometimes to answer the eve ringing phone and then disappear again leaving the chefs ringing the bell for the food that they had cooked to be delivered to the ever waiting customers. The more the chefs waited the more they rang the bell but still no waiting staff. It appears that they were all in the bar serving a large birthday party that they said had appeared without a booking. A shame that they devote attention on them and just left those of us who had made bookings in the restaurant to just wait and wait and wait and listen yo the poor chefs ringing that bell!

Barrett's Restaurant

Magenta

Steve dined on Sat, 2nd May 2015 (7)

Great new menu with great food cooked by clearly great chefs if probably a little slower than would have expected when we were the only people eating in the restaurant at the time.

Kobe Jones Sydney

Darling Harbour

Steve dined on Mon, 27th Apr 2015 (5)

Somewhat disappointing this time as in the past the standards have been generally high here, so maybe an off night. Lucky too that we had the Dimmi 50% off special because it has become very pricy too. The disappointment peaked at the dessert stage with only three desserts on offer and the one we chose had almond sauce until the staff came back to say the kitchen is out of almond sauce sorry, no almond sauce!!!

Criniti's Woolloomooloo

Woolloomooloo

Steve dined on Mon, 20th Apr 2015 (6)

A standard Criniti's experience with nothing overly impressive apart of course for the water views at this venue.

Alluvial Restaurant

Melbourne CBD

Steve dined on Sat, 11th Apr 2015 (6)

This 5 star hotel restaurant appears to have been degraded somewhat since our last visit and now promotes itself as a brasserie rather than a 5 star restaurant within an Intercontinental 5 star hotel.

The Canopy

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Wed, 25th Mar 2015 (7)

Nothing too flash but the food is great but the tables are too close together, needs to try a bit harder if it wants returning customers, is it an after works drinking establishment or a restaurant, not sure if it can be both!

The Arisaig Tea Rooms

Surry Hills

Steve dined on Sat, 14th Mar 2015 (9)

What a very pleasant surprise here, a Scittish eating place offering great food and reasonable service right in the heart of the CBD but peacefully located in the old Readers Digest buidling in Surry Hills, give it a try.

Public Dining Room

Mosman

Steve dined on Thu, 5th Mar 2015 (7)

Views aplenty here in this airy and bright Balmoral eatery overlooking the water. We were the first to be seated yet we still waited 30 minutes for the food to arrive and why oh why do they seat everyone next to each other leaving huge swathes of the restaurant empty. Staff a little aloof too!

Steel Bar & Grill

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Tue, 3rd Mar 2015 (10)

A new menu but still the best steaks and the best service from the guys on the floor and in the kitchen. Some new main courses only enhances this place even more, well done guys.

Kingsleys Australian Steakhouse

Great steaks are a given at this CBD steakhouse but service too has improved greatly since our last visit.

Foveaux Street Dining

Surry Hills

Steve dined on Wed, 11th Feb 2015 (10)

Fine dining but without the high price - we arrived into a space with tables with no cutlery, napkins or glasses and as we booked early no people either, all a little off putting. The food though was exquisite, beautifully presented and well served, the ginger sorbet was a delight. If they could serve chilled tap water too rather than room temperature it would be verging on perfection.

Barrett's Restaurant

Magenta

Steve dined on Sat, 7th Feb 2015 (8)

Great Pullman hotel restaurant up on the Central Coast of NSW offering good food and service. It was probably unfortunate that on the evening we dined the place was filled with a children's party, but it didn't detract from the great food and service though.

Hugos Bar Pizza

Potts Point

Steve dined on Fri, 6th Feb 2015 (2)

If you ask to not sit at the designated table due to the loudness of the music speaker just overhead you don't expect to be treated with such arrogance and hostility so we did not stay - such rudeness from the staff!

Leichhardt

Steve dined on Sun, 25th May 2014 (6)

We had high hopes for this Italian having read great things about the tiramisu and the friendliness! On arrival he restaurant was empty and we were seated and we chatted with the waiter about the desserts he said the tiramisu wouldn't disappoint! Half way through our meal and with the restaurant still empty a group of four came in and the staff sat them at the table right next to us - why when there was so many other free tables. As for the tiramisu "sorry it ran out at lunchtime" we were told!

Steel Bar & Grill

we had booked for 6PM but on arrival they explained that because they had not finished vacuuming we would need to wait - not a good first impression - but the food was great although with no windows or view the atmosphere was poor.

Chinta Ria

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Sun, 17th Feb 2013 (8)

still a great place for a realtively cheap but good lunch! This place has been here a while and maybe it's best not to look up at the decor and roof eaves because they all look rather tired and dirty!

Sherpa Kitchen

Newtown

Steve dined on Thu, 31st Jan 2013 (8)

great little place right in the heart of Newtown on King Street - great menu with great mains.

Graffiti

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Thu, 24th Jan 2013 (6)

the food was great so it was a shame that the staff looking after the bill was unable to deduct the dimmi $50 voucher from the total bill correctly - as such we were overcharged.

Mumu Grill

Crows Nest

Steve dined on Sun, 6th Jan 2013 (6)

a great steak house in Crows Nest busy great food but sometimes disappointing on the service front casual service should not be an excuse for poor or inattentive service

Manta Restaurant & Bar

Woolloomooloo

Steve dined on Thu, 27th Dec 2012 (8)

great views great food but why do these places with so many empty tables sit the 4 tables with people dining all right next to each other rather than spreading diners out?

I Thai Restaurant and Bar

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Sat, 15th Dec 2012 (6)

a great place to enjoy an outdoor Thai meal with views and good food in abundance.

Mumu Grill

Crows Nest

Steve dined on Mon, 3rd Dec 2012 (6)

this Crows Nest steakhouse offers good valued steaks and other mostly meat dishes but sometimes the food and service lets the place down a little - they try but sometimes just miss the mark!

Chefs Gallery Townhall

a fine Vietnamese - French inspited eatery just off William Street offering a unique and tasty menu!

Esca Bimbadgen

Pokolbin

Steve dined on Sat, 20th Oct 2012 (6)

what let's this place down consistantly is the waiting staff on the floor - the kitchen staff are great and the food that comes from them never disappoints. The waiting staff are mechanical and off-hand and often just look straight through you rather than offer assistance or dare forbid take your order or clear your empty plates.

Mumu Grill

Crows Nest

Steve dined on Mon, 15th Oct 2012 (7)

great steak and great prices but the staff can be a little slack and informal giving rise to disappointment sometimes!

Mezzo Matto Restaurant

Turramurra

Steve dined on Sat, 1st Sep 2012 (6)

early on a Saturday evening one would expect them to be prepared for the night ahead - rather this establishment did not have sparkling mineral water did not have lemon lime and bitters and the waiting staff just kept saying I am all alone and having a horrid night!

Abhi's Indian Restaurant

Steve dined on Fri, 31st Aug 2012 (8)

a gem of a place offering great food and first class attentive professional service an above average Indian restaurant with prices to match!

Wildfire Restaurant & Bar

The Rocks

Steve dined on Sun, 12th Aug 2012 (8)

high quality experience right on the edge of Circular Quay with views across to the Opera House makes for a great expereinece when the food is this good - shame though that 2 steaks (cooked medium well) took over 40 minutes to arrive

Mumu Grill

Steve dined on Thu, 9th Aug 2012 (8)

great as always this place knows how to cook and serve steaks

delightful restaurant great food just a shame we were the only people dining as the lift music in the restaurant did not help the atmosphere

Harrisons on Terrigal

Terrigal

Steve dined on Sat, 14th Jul 2012 (7)

A fairly standard beachside cafe offering a good range of dishes and great coffee. Some good value lunchtime speacials at weekends too! No beach view though great outdoor seating allowing views of passing people.

Sous le Soleil - St. Ives

St Ives

Steve dined on Thu, 12th Jul 2012 (8)

A delightful liitle place offering French cuisine in a great location. The service is quick and some of the waiting staff are exceptional - some not so too! It's worth a trip out to St Ives just to experience the cottage atmosphere and on Wednesdays the fire is lit too!

Essen Restaurant

Ultimo

Steve dined on Wed, 4th Jul 2012 (4)

This busy German restaurant appears to be struggling to retain the levels that it once had in terms of food and service. The food was poorly cooked verging on the inedible and the service chaotic.

Sous le Soleil - St. Ives

St Ives

Steve dined on Thu, 28th Jun 2012 (8)

A historic cottage and great food and service is usually a recipe for a great night out and this place will not disappoint! Just off the main road in St Ives is a great French restaurant offering delicious french cuisine in an ideal setting.

Chinta Ria

As always a great place for great food and good service.

Not Bread Alone

Crows Nest

Steve dined on Thu, 21st Jun 2012 (6)

A ;ovely little corner restaurant offering both inside and outside dining with great specials and a standard menu too! On the evening that we dined the mains took just about 40 minutes to arrive which was disappointing but the food once arrived was OK!

Thyme Square Cafe

Hornsby

Steve dined on Tue, 5th Jun 2012 (4)

It is never going to be a good start when you arrive at the pre-booked time and date having made the booking through the dimmi website to be told ooooh we don't appear to have your booking. Having dealt with that we sat and ordered and then the staff whilst changing a light globe adjacent to our table dropped the globe - no word of regret suggested a level of disinterest in our comfort. The food arrived good and wholesome but the bill was wrong and whne the globe dropping staff was alerted to the error he became rattled and abrupt and as such our first and last impressions of this cafe were far from good.

Mumu Grill

Crows Nest

Steve dined on Mon, 4th Jun 2012 (7)

An ideal place to drop in for a drink and something good to eat after work - the steaks are a must - well cooked and reasonably priced.

Cafe Mix

The Rocks

Steve dined on Sat, 2nd Jun 2012 (8)

If there is one thing that restaurants do well in 5-star holtels, that's International Food Festival buffets. So it was when we booked and ined at cafe Mix during their Thai International Food Festival. The quality of the cooking and care in presentation at the buffet by the chefs was immediately clear and apparant - all quite delicious and tempting to return. The service on the floor was somewhat disappointing with probably a shortage of waiting staff being as evident as the great food. Still you don't go to rush things and the Thai on a cold wet weekend in June was a great pick-me-up!

Atlantis Bar and Dining

North Ryde

Steve dined on Fri, 1st Jun 2012 (8)

What a surprise to find such a high quality establishment tucked away in North Ryde underneath a Quest Apartments complex. This fine restaurant has an emphasis on fish and does the dishes well too! The service is great and the prices fair.

La Grillade

Cremorne

Steve dined on Mon, 28th May 2012 (9)

Recently re-opened this North Shore institution is back where it belongs right at the very pinnacle of all things great in eating out in Crows Nest. The food and service is exemplary and add in the atmosphere that pervades this establishment and you have a night to remember.

Sous le Soleil - St. Ives

St Ives

Steve dined on Tue, 22nd May 2012 (8)

This unique heritage building in St IVes accomodates a fine French country style restaurant which offers fine food and drink. The restaurant is housed in a number of smaller adjoining rooms which makes seemless service a little difficult but is more than made up for by fine food and atmosphere.

Sherpa Kitchen

Newtown

Steve dined on Wed, 16th May 2012 (5)

In the heart of Newtown there are so many restaurants like Sherpa's Kitchen and this one is slightly above average but nothing really special.

Mumu Grill

Crows Nest

Steve dined on Mon, 14th May 2012 (8)

If steak is what you are looking for and you're not keen to go into the CBD and pay their prices then you won't go far wrong at Mumu Grill in Crows Nest. Just tucked behind some awnings is a large grill and bar offering great steaks, great service and all reasonably priced.

Kingsleys Australian Steakhouse

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Wed, 9th May 2012 (6)

This icon of steakhouses in the very heart of the CBD continues to produce exemplary steaks and atmosphere if a t a price. On this occasion they let themselves down on service being I sense somewhat light on staff numbers. On arrival there was no-one in sight to meet and greet at the door and having been seated and given menus the staff member vanished to the kitchen counter to fold napkins and be totally engrossed in chatting with the chef. Staff and service aside the steks are great and the armosphere unique but don't be in a rush to get in and out.

Sous le Soleil - St. Ives

St Ives

Steve dined on Thu, 3rd May 2012 (9)

A fine architectural gem in the heart of St Ives busy shopping area is somewhat unique but this fine eating establishment shines as a beacon in the North Shore of suburban Sydney. The atmosphere allows one to think that you are on holiday in rural and regional NSW and enjoying some French / Australian fare. The staff are efficient and the food delightful give it a try you will not be disappointed.

Mustang Nepalese

Steve dined on Tue, 1st May 2012 (8)

This small suburban restaurant is offering great Nepalese cuisine in lovely surroundings and at the same providing greatr service.

Mumu Grill

Crows Nest

Steve dined on Thu, 26th Apr 2012 (8)

It is refreshing to know that there are suburban restaurants around that you can be sure that upon arrival that the food will always be consistantly excellent - Mumu Grill in Crows Nest is one such place.

Kuali

Lane Cove

Steve dined on Fri, 6th Apr 2012 (8)

It might be hard to find, tucked away as it is upstairs in a small Lane Cove arcade but persevere because you will definately NOT be disappointed. The malaysian cuisine served here must rate as some of the best outside of Malaysia and is similarly served by staff who excel in what they do.

Roxanne Restaurant

Glebe

Steve dined on Thu, 5th Apr 2012 (5)

This small Glebe restaurant offers reasonable cuisine with great service and ofcourse convenient to all the buzz of the Glebe Point Road "strip". It's quite an ordianry restaurant offering "nothing to get excited about" food but hey it's always relaible.

Mumu Grill

Crows Nest

Steve dined on Wed, 21st Mar 2012 (9)

This Crows Nest gem of a steak house offers exceptional service and delicious steaks which are affordable yet compare favourably with CBD steakhouses. The staff are fantastic at making your meal appear seamless and at the same time are friendly and chatty.

Esca Bimbadgen

Pokolbin

Steve dined on Sat, 17th Mar 2012 (7)

A delightful place to stop for lunch in the heart of the Hunter valley with to die for views of the countryside and beyond across the hills. The food is 5-star with perfect portion sizes to enable you to enjoy a 3-course lunch anytime. On the day that we dined however the service out of the kitchen was considerably below par and rather embarrasing for both staff and Head waiter alike.

Kingsleys Australian Steakhouse

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Fri, 2nd Mar 2012 (5)

On the afternoon of our reservation, just an hour or 2 before we were due to dine we received a call cancelling our booking due to a fire in their kitchen!

Acacia Dining

Gordon

Steve dined on Tue, 21st Feb 2012 (5)

Tucked away down a laneway just adjacent to Gordon Station is this smart Japanese restaurant. It offers the standard menu items but the standards in the kitchen are a notch above the norm. The prices though do match the kitchen standards and work out a little pricey for a meal other than a celebration.

Mumu Grill

Crows Nest

Steve dined on Fri, 3rd Feb 2012 (8)

This corner site just off the main street in Crows Nest offers some of the best steaks outside of the CBD if not better! The staff are friendly and relaxed and make you feel welcome and at home bringing out the meals knowing they will be good is clearly something that they enjoy.

Fusion Cafe

Marsfield

Steve dined on Wed, 1st Feb 2012 (7)

If you can't find anywhere exciting to eat inside the Macquarie Centre, then just travel a few kms down the road towards Marsfield and you will find a surprisingly good little outlet to dine. The menu appears pretty standard with entrees at $12 and mains at $28 but once the food arrives you will find anything but standard. The food is both flavoursome and plentiful and will not disappoint no matter what you order.

Chinta Ria

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Sun, 29th Jan 2012 (9)

This unique South East Asian gem located on the edge of Cockle Bay Wharf has never diappointed!. It exudes atmosphere no matter time of the day you choose to dine and the food always excites. Just be careful not to over-order as the portions are hardly small and very filling.

Mumu Grill

Crows Nest

Steve dined on Sat, 31st Dec 2011 (8)

This steakhouse offers fine food and great service without the "over the top" prices of the CBD. The guys on the floor go out of their way to make you feel welcome and the guys in the kitchen do their bit too to ensure the steaks come out just like you like them.

Himalayan Char Grill Glebe

Glebe

Steve dined on Wed, 28th Dec 2011 (6)

If steak is what you like then you won't go wrong at Kingsleys!

The kitchen is open and it is great to watch the chefs preparing each plate and this adds something more to the experience!

Mumu Grill

Crows Nest

Steve dined on Wed, 23rd Nov 2011 (8)

Mustang Nepalese

Crows Nest

Steve dined on Fri, 21st Oct 2011 (8)

Amidst the suburban shops of Crows Nest is a fine little Nepalese establishment offering cosistant and enjoyable cuisine 7 nights a week. If you haven't tried the light flavoursome cuisine of Nepal then this place is for you!

MoS Cafe

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Wed, 19th Oct 2011 (7)

Tucked beneath The Museum of Sydney across the road from the Intercontiental Hotel you will find an exciting little cafe / restaurant offering innovative cuisine and great attentive service. The 3-tier tapas selection shared between 2 is a great pre-theatre idea + you can sit outside and watch all those poor souls rusing home whilst you sip your pre-theatre drinks!

Ballaro

Lindfield

Steve dined on Mon, 17th Oct 2011 (7)

Hidden amongst a line of Lindfield suburban shops is a delightful small Italian offering some high quality dishes with a modern twist. The food comes out of the kitchen full of flavour and is served quickly and professionally. The modern decor of red and black may appear bare but the modern interior design is clean and well presented.

Alira

Pyrmont

Steve dined on Sun, 9th Oct 2011 (8)

This establishment can always be relied upon to impress and satisfy diners yet at the same time allow for a surprise or two! This visit saw us partaking in the "Sunday Roast" promotion which as its name suggests is a roast of the day + a drink. Well worth making your visit on a Sunday lunch to enjoy as we did the views, the food and the service.

MoS Cafe

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Mon, 19th Sep 2011 (7)

Enjoying breakfast outside on a weekday morning watching evryone else scurrying off to work just must be the greatest buzz! Enjoying it at MoS Cafe adds that something else to the mix! The staff are pleasant the food great and the coffee just must be the best around, all in all, a great start to any day!

Bella Blue Cafe

Lindfield

Steve dined on Wed, 14th Sep 2011 (6)

This lovely cafe style restaurant is a keen favourite in the Lindfield area and the evening menu provides a wide range of dishes and specials to enjoy. The staff are keen to make your evening a pleasure and they are attentive and efficient.

Ta One Thai Restaurant

North Epping

Steve dined on Mon, 12th Sep 2011 (2)

Not a wholly enjoyable Thai cuisine experience I am sorry to say here in North Epping Village. The restaurant on a corner site is noticeably bare in terms of the windows having no curtain or blinds and the whole ambiance is unattractive. The food is bland and unappealing and is simply diced meat dropped into a sauce and served with vegeatbles warmed and hard rather than hot and cooked. The staff do not smile and if you want to use your Sydney North Entertainment Book 25% off card expect a fight ............ all in all best to stay away!

Alira

Pyrmont

Steve dined on Sun, 11th Sep 2011 (8)

On a bright sunny day beside the harbour at Jones Bay Wharf and dining outside at Alira you may be forgiven for thinking that life is perfect! The Sunday lunch roast special will never disappoint whether it is beef rib, pork or duck and the menu is full of a myriad of tapas dishes too! The staff are great and helpful too and surely you can't mind waiting a tiny bit too long for the roast if the sun is out and all is well with the world!

Mustang Nepalese

Crows Nest

Steve dined on Mon, 5th Sep 2011 (8)

Tucked in between a myriad of other estaurants in this delightful little Nepalese place offering distinctive and delicious cuisine which will bring you back many times.

Alira

Pyrmont

Steve dined on Sun, 4th Sep 2011 (8)

Down past the casino right on the waterfront at Pyrmont you will find a real gem of a restaurant offering tapas of the highest quality. A tiny little place but with tables outside too, always lively with a great little menu + excellent staff who rush around productively bringing small plates and wood platters filled with joyous goodies. Well worth a try!

Mumu Grill

Crows Nest

Steve dined on Wed, 24th Aug 2011 (5)

You can always rely on a great steak being served to you at this Crows Nest favourite! Located just off the main Crows Nest "drag", you'll find Mu Mu Grill offering great steaks + drinks at easy to afford prices.

Verve Restaurant

Broadbeach

Steve dined on Sun, 21st Aug 2011 (6)

Just behind Jupiters casino near to Broadbeach is an unremarkable shopfront in a small arcade but once inside it's a different thing all together. The food is incredible with a hint of asian influence and the portions just right. It is disappointing therefore that the meals as good as they were took some 40 minutes to appear but hey all good things deserve to be waited for!

Mumu Grill

Crows Nest

Steve dined on Tue, 16th Aug 2011 (6)

Just around the corner from the main Croas Nest High Street lies a great steak restaurant worthy of a visit!

Raavis Cumin

Crows Nest

Steve dined on Fri, 5th Aug 2011 (4)

Just off the main strip in Crows Nest lies a respectable Indian restaurant offering the standard fare and a thriving take away busimess. It's a large space bereft of too much interest by way of pictures or ornaments and the food may be standard but it's worth a try if you're in the area.

MoS Cafe

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Mon, 1st Aug 2011 (5)

Right next door to the great Museum of Sydney lies the MoS cafe with great options for dining al-fresco. The staff appeared to be a little too laid back and we did seem to wait a while too long for our empty plates to be cleared but hey the passing people make the wait quite interesting though!

Cafe Mix

The Rocks

Steve dined on Sat, 30th Jul 2011 (6)

Right in th heart of the Rocks in Sydney is a 5-satr hotel, The Shangri-La and up on the 1st floor is a refined dining experience Cafe Mix. Soewhat similar to many other 5-satr all-day-dining venues but on a saturday lunch in mid winter eerily quiet and surprisingly refreshing. The salad bar at $8 with any meal is great value and of a deceptively high standard.

Mumu Grill

Crows Nest

Steve dined on Wed, 27th Jul 2011 (8)

If you're looking for excellent steak outside of the Sydney CBD then Mu MU Grill in Crows Nest will not disappoint. This large restaurant / bar offers steaks that would surpass many of the traditional stekhouses in the City.

Alira

Pyrmont

Steve dined on Sat, 23rd Jul 2011 (6)

Tucked away down Jones Bay Wharf in Pyrmont you will find this unassuming little Spanish tapas bar / restaurant offering great food and service. The restaurant is small and the tables are closely packed and access around the tables is at times somewhat difficult but the food and service goes some way to making up for the fact that you are almost sitting on the lap of your neighbour!

Tre Pesci Italian

Drummoyne

Steve dined on Fri, 22nd Jul 2011 (7)

A delightful Italian restaurant with a warm welcome and great food let down just a little by the service with large gaps between courses but the kitchen certainly made up for any delay which at the end of the day let's be honest you're not out for dinner to rush!

Chinta Ria

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Sat, 16th Jul 2011 (8)

You can never go wrong or disappointed by Chinta Ria down on Cockle Bay Wharf at Darling Park. The staff move through the restaurant at lightning speed bringing the exciting dishes from the kitchen only minutes after you've ordered. The cuisine is "Singaporean "pauper" fare and comes in mighty portions. Beware of oredering too many dishes as the amounts are plentiful!

Mumu Grill

Crows Nest

Steve dined on Wed, 13th Jul 2011 (8)

Right in the heart of Crows Nest ther's a large venue with an unusual little name but with great, maybe even the best steaks, that's Mu Mu Grill. Although there's plenty of variety on the menu in the main course department, it would be a missed opportunity if steak was not partaken of here.

Chinta Ria

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Sun, 10th Jul 2011 (8)

If you're looking for a quick, enjoyable and unique dining experience then you won't go far wrong at Chinta Ria in Cockle Bay Wharf. The venue itself as a circular shrine to all things Singaporean / Malaysian is a sight to see and the atmosphere no matter when you go will always be humming and hectic. Try it out once and you'll always be going back!

Zaaffran

Darling Harbour

Steve dined on Fri, 1st Jul 2011 (5)

Right in the heart of Darling Harbour you will find an Indian restaurant well above the customary standards of amany suburban Indain take-aways.

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Wed, 15th Jun 2011 (6)

Bayleaf Brasserie

Crows Nest

Steve dined on Fri, 18th Feb 2011 (6)

Don't be put off by the approach to this suburban restaurant which is inside Crows Nest Plaza a conventional shopping centre poulated by several casual dining international dining options. It is the menu and cooking skills that you are coming here for and you won't be disappointed by the quality and quantity of the cuisine on offer.

Victoria Room

Darlinghurst

Steve dined on Wed, 16th Feb 2011 (8)

What a jewel in the heart of Darlinghurst! This unique restaurant indistinguishable from other buildings along Victoria Street sits on the first floor up a flight of stairs. The atmosphere hits you at the top step and the fixtures, fittings and furnishings scream British Empire days. The food and service too is well above average and the menu allows you to sahre all dishes and enjoy what delicacies are on offer. A must see!

Malabar @ Darlinghurst

Darlinghurst

Steve dined on Fri, 11th Feb 2011 (8)

There are many Indian restaurants in metro Sydney to choose from but very few that can match the innovative and imaginative standards of Malabar. The menu and food quality are both outstanding and each dish appears to say something dufferent to you about the flavours and aromas of India.

Almond Bar

Darlinghurst

Steve dined on Sun, 30th Jan 2011 (8)

Right in th ehart of busy Darlinghurst this Middle eastern restaurant is neatly tucked away on the corner of Liverpool Street just down from the Jewish Museum. A narrow building accomodates a number of cute narrow tables, the good impact of which is to enable you to share the mezze plates with your partner. The service is excellent and the food as each dish comes to you is mouth-watering. A good find and well worth a visit!

This darling Harbour gem is always best on a bright sunny lunchtime when you can sit outside and take in the air and views. The food too is always reliably great and the service goes without question. On a Saturday lunchtime the pace is more relaxed and the atmosphere great.

Sugaroom

Pyrmont

Steve dined on Wed, 12th Jan 2011 (7)

This gem of a harbour-side restaurant in Pyrmont is a surprising find insofar as it is tucked behind a cafe and under an apartment block. With uninterrupted views across to East Balmain provided dinders with the peace and tranquility often so difficult to find in Sydney CBD. The food and service are both of a high standard with good portions yet reasonably priced at the same time.

Bacar Restaurant

Homebush

Steve dined on Mon, 27th Dec 2010 (5)

This Homebush Bay restaurant situated within a Pullman Hotel on the Plympic site does not attract a large clientelle, infact it rarely gets busy. That said the food is of a high standard however on this occasion the kitchen appeared to be struggling to get the food out in a timely fashion, the mains taking 40 minutes the dessert 30 minutes.

Garden Court Restaurant

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Fri, 24th Dec 2010 (8)

A great hidden gem up on the 5th floor of this Sydney landmark hotel near Chifley Square. The staff are a delight with many long term staff still on the floor looking after returning guests. The menu allows the chefs to focus on the grill + the service ensures the food comes out to the table in good time. Worth a try!

Charr

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Mon, 20th Dec 2010 (7)

A surprisingly good find in the middle of the city adjacent to Wynyard Station. This 5-star hotel restaurant provides a good solid menu but with a strong focus on steaks from the grill. The staff are keen to assist and present as being competent and well trained waiting persons.

Bacar Restaurant

Homebush

Steve dined on Sun, 19th Dec 2010 (7)

This out of town 5-star hotel restaurant provides exceptional quality food and service and although in the Olympic Homebush precinct is able to hold its head high alongside some of its Sydney CBD cousins. The prices are above average but the quality and service standards can excuse the higher prices.

I Thai Restaurant and Bar

Sydney CBD

Steve dined on Sun, 12th Dec 2010 (7)

This harbourside Thai restaurant makes the most of the great views yet at the same time provides flavoursome and high quality meals that are well above the average Thai within the CBD. The staff move about fast to ensure quick service although the crowds that are attracted here do impact negatively on the service sometimes but hey just enjoy the view whilst you're waiting for your rice.
