Little Jean

Double Bay

Elise dined on Wed, 28th Aug 2019 (9)

A fabulous local restaurant. Always lovely fresh clean food. Tasty and well presented. Service is attentive. Breakfast is delicious but I had dinner on this occasion and it was great. A local gem that's always full...so make a booking.

Sake Restaurant & Bar Double Bay

Double Bay

Elise dined on Fri, 23rd Aug 2019 (9)

Awesome restaurant. Beautiful fresh food cooked to perfection. Will be returning. Service is attentive. Love the Double Bay location the best.

Brown Sugar Bondi

Bondi

Elise dined on Thu, 15th Aug 2019 (9)

It's only the 2nd time I've visited but it's simple great. I had dinner. Delicious food that's tasty and fresh. The snapper is awesome. Service is attentive and efficient. Space is small and can get a bit noisy when it's a full house but definately worth the visit. BYO as well but corkage is a bit high. Will be going back soon for breakfast.

Bea Restaurant at Barangaroo House

Barangaroo

Elise dined on Sat, 27th Jul 2019 (9)

Lovely location and the food is fresh and perfect. Great sharing options. Service is attentive and friendly. Have been a few times and will continue to eat here. Never a let down:-)

Catalina

Rose Bay

Elise dined on Tue, 30th Apr 2019 (10)

Perfect as always. Cannot fault delicious food and perfect service. Midweek was lovely in the evening because it was about 3/4 full and didnt get too loud. Weekend's are very busy. Do yourself a favour and try one of their cocktails. Pricey but great.

Vaucluse House Tearooms

Vaucluse

Elise dined on Thu, 25th Apr 2019 (7)

It's a lovely quite place that I've always enjoyed. The food is good. We had breakfast for a birthday celebration and it was nice. The only thing I was disappointed about was the table water charge. I don't remember being asked that it be Bottled water. I'm always happy with tap water. On the bill I found 2xspringwater charge =$24. That's not ok with me. Otherwise all good and would go back again but be aware of the water cost.

I Maccheroni

Woollahra

Elise dined on Wed, 27th Mar 2019 (10)

A lovely restaurant that has become a favourite of mine. The service is very attentive and welcoming. No request is too difficult. The owners are lovely. The food is like traditional home cooked Italian food. Absolutely delicious! I've been multiple times and always look forward to coming back. Book your table on a weekend as it gets very busy. Weeknights are quieter but I enjoy that feel.

Love Bills as my local.

Otto Sydney

Woolloomooloo

Elise dined on Sun, 9th Dec 2018 (9)

First time at Ottos and it was great. Celebrated a birthday. Beautiful food and wine recommendation was great choice. Service was attentive but not pushy. We were seated inside and it got a little loud once it was full but can't fault the restaurant.

SaltVine

Surry Hills

Elise dined on Thu, 29th Nov 2018 (9)

The food was great as usual. I'm a repeat customer and they never disappoint. The only down side is the noise becomes a bit much when the restaurant is full.

Altitude Restaurant

Sydney CBD

Elise dined on Sat, 22nd Sep 2018 (10)

Most amazing views of Sydney I've ever seen. Food was wonderful and service was excellent. The wait staff were very helpful but not intrusive. We had the set menu and we didnt walk away hungry. I cannot fault anything and will definately go back for a special occasion.

Lovely as always. A local fav. Food is tasty, fresh and great.

Catalina

Rose Bay

Elise dined on Sun, 6th Aug 2017 (9)

It's a lovely restaurant with great high end food. Great wine selection. Cocktails are good but on the pricy side. Service is very attentive and helpful. Love the location and beautiful views. I've been 3 times so far and the only downside (in my opinion) is when it's a full house, it gets extremely noisy and you almost have to shout to have a conversation.

Lovely as always. Never disappoints. Great service and yum food.

Vino E Cucina

Paddington

Elise dined on Wed, 31st May 2017 (8)

lovely as always. good food and reasonable prices. can get a little noisy when it's full.

Jersey Rd. Bistro

Woollahra

Elise dined on Sun, 14th May 2017 (7)

I booked for Mothers Day brunch with my son. The service was very attentive and polite and helpful. The food tasted lovely. However we found the "brunch menu" to be a bit odd regarding variety of options. We booked for 10am-that was the earliest-however things like Sydney oysters, quail eggs or fishfingers were on the menu. We couldn't get a standard "breakfast/brunch" option like on other days. This was a little disappointing. However we ordered and the food was delicious, and interesting. Wouldn't suit family with children.

The Cortile

Sydney CBD

Elise dined on Sat, 1st Apr 2017 (8)

Lovely dessert buffet where you can't fault the food. However slightly expensive for what you get. I found the 1.5hr sitting is not long enough and it seems unfair to be hurried out by the staff. High tea time is for chatting so the seating should be at least 2hrs. Everything was clean and well presented. Nice for a special occassion.

Little Jean

Double Bay

Elise dined on Fri, 17th Feb 2017 (9)

Lovely as always and food is super delicious.

Criniti's Woolloomooloo

Woolloomooloo

Elise dined on Sun, 15th Jan 2017 (8)

We had a group of 9 and service was managed well. Food was lovely and price is pretty good. Generous servings.

Vino E Cucina

Paddington

Elise dined on Sat, 14th Jan 2017 (10)

Always lovely food. Attentive service. A fab Paddington restaurant.

Fratelli Fresh Potts Point

Potts Point

Elise dined on Thu, 12th Jan 2017 (6)

Service was lovely and attentive. However the rocket salad was slightly "over dressed" with parmesan and oil, therefore we couldn't enjoy the freshness of the salad. Pasta servings are a generous size and tasty. There were good varieties. Also it would be advisable if the staff could check with the customer first, if they wanted parmesan cheese all over the pasta dishes. Only pointing this out because not everyone likes parmesan. It should be an option to add and not assumed. Would have liked more meat in my bolognese sauce as well. Wine was lovely and the list had good choices.

Criniti's Darling Harbour

Darling Harbour

Elise dined on Sat, 10th Dec 2016 (3)

Very disappointing this time as previously my dinner there was nice. This time it was so loud and noisy inside that we could not talk to each other at the table and even the wait staff couldnt hear our orders. It was very unpleasant and we could talk wait to leave. Way too many people and large group bookings all at once. Food was very average and our order was mixed up and drinks only half arrived. Wont go back to that location...however the Woolloomooloo location is very lovely and pleasant.

Criniti's Darling Harbour

Darling Harbour

Elise dined on Wed, 23rd Nov 2016 (7)

The place got way too loud. Volume of everyone speaking/shouting was ridiculous. Staff were not attentive and didn't even come to check if we wanted dessert or more drinks. Disappointing this time.

Little Jean

I love this hidden gem.

Bar Mia Pizzeria Ristorante

Bellevue Hill

Elise dined on Thu, 14th Jul 2016 (8)

Restaurant has yum homestyle cooking. The owners are lovely. However it can get quite noisy inside and especially of the music is turned on. I'm a repeat customer so cant fault it.

Little Jean

Double Bay

Elise dined on Wed, 29th Jun 2016 (9)

Awesome attentive service by the knowledgeable staff. Food was great as usual. Couldnt fault anything. Try the Salmon...its a wonderful dish with awesome flavour. Great coffee too!

Little Jean

Double Bay

Elise dined on Wed, 22nd Jun 2016 (9)

Always great delicous food. Previously l've only had breakfast at Little Jean and that was great, so i thought I'd try their dinner menu. It was delicious and a good variety of yummy wholesome food. I had the snapper which was lovely but maybe slightly over salted. Otherwise all perfect. Its a great week night eat out place as not too crowded or noisy:-) It gets very busy on weekends. Service was efficient and lovely as well.

Criniti's Darling Harbour

Darling Harbour

Elise dined on Thu, 2nd Jun 2016 (8)

We went there for a team lunch. 6 people sharing various pizzas that were very yummy. Everything was pretty good except the food took quite a while to come out. Approx 40mins. For a team that needed to go back to work, time was essential. The restaurant was only quarter full. In general im always happy to eat there.

Lovely food as usual. Im never disappointed when going to Bills. Excellent attentive service as well.

Criniti's Woolloomooloo

Elise dined on Sat, 28th May 2016 (8)

This is my second visit here. Lovely food that's at a great price. I had the barramundi and it was cooked perfectly. The kids had a pizza and burger that was very tasty and generous in size. My partner had a great pizza as well. The only down side was that there were very large groups seated around us and it became very loud. There was also limited staff so service took a while. But in general its a great restaurant and I'll definately go back again.

I love Bills at Bondi. Service is always reliable and so is the food. We had an awesome dinner with beautiful fresh food. It wasn't to over crowded as it was mid week. Weekends gets very full and can be a bit too noisy because of all the people. I often eat breakfast at Bills and will continue to return.
