Criniti's Southbank


Darren dined on Sat, 17th Nov 2018 (9)

Food was good. Service was good except they told me the system allocates seating and went to put us outside and when I complained they found me a table inside and then I discovered there was plenty of table upstairs..... stupid system but still love it!!

Clifford's Grill & Lounge

Surfers Paradise

Darren dined on Sun, 8th Apr 2018 (7)

Went for dessert and shared both the signatures shared dessert. The bom Alaska was excellent 9/10 but the other chocolate dessert was awful..... the macaron was stale and the rest was tasteless. The restaurant stunk of smoke from the grill, it was overpowering the entire place. We were so looking forward to going there but was disappointed.

Long Chim Melbourne

Great food, average service though.

Harbour Fresh - Queensland Booking times

Tweed Heads

Darren dined on Sat, 30th Dec 2017 (9)

Great fish and seafood served as it should, with a sauce on the side and delish sides. It’s great to see into the kitchen while your meal is prepared and the kitchen was impeccably clean and topped of with some great service. Highly recommend!!!!

Criniti's Carlton Melbourne


Darren dined on Sat, 9th Dec 2017 (9)

Great food, great service (except for the rude man on the cash register) tried spaghetti and meatballs which were awesome and a 1 metre pizza which is a must try and great fun!!!

Etsu Izakaya

Mermaid Beach

Darren dined on Tue, 18th Apr 2017 (9)

Great food, great service, great drinks.... put simply, it's great !!!!

Cav's Steakhouse


Darren dined on Thu, 13th Apr 2017 (5)

We have been coming here around 3 or 4 times at least for 15 years. Every time we are here on holidays we come to Cavs. But the last couple of times and especially this time the restaurant has started to drop its standard of meat and the money charged is not worth it. With so many amazing new restaurants in surfers and beyond I would say try somewhere else. It's a shame because it's a long established icon, it will be closed soon unless they change the decor, menu and the meat supplier or butchers. Sorry Cavs, but my love for you is gone.... we will not be back again!!!!

Hattori Hanzo


Darren dined on Sun, 9th Apr 2017 (9)

Love this place.... We keep coming back again and again. Great modern edged Japanese food with great service.

Hattori Hanzo

As always it was great. Lack a bit of atmosphere but it was a quiet Sunday night. Great food!!!

Taco Bill - Bentleigh


Darren dined on Fri, 17th Mar 2017 (2)

What an awful experience. The food was terrible and expensive for what is offered. Burnt Fajitas forgotten extras, the most ridiculously overpriced and undersized kids nachos. The tacos had soggy lettuce and no meat filling. And to top off a terrible meal the manager wasn't even there and the restaurant was run by kids (well very young adults!) We received a 50% discount so they tried to compensate, but my advice would be, buy some corn chips and melt some cheese on them and stay home rather than go to this place!!!!!

Cerberus Beach House

Black Rock

Albert Park

Darren dined on Sat, 19th Nov 2016 (7)

Food was nice but service was slack and extremely slow. They gave us a discount which was nice but didn't make up for the length of time it took to get our meals.

Cav's Steakhouse


Darren dined on Fri, 8th Jul 2016 (10)

Great food and great service, as always!
