Fratelli Fresh Darling Harbour

Darling Harbour

Courtenay dined on Mon, 9th Sep 2019 (8)

Great "All You Can Eat" Pizza special on Monday night for $20 (although a limited menu of pizza options, all quite similar without much variety). The venue was great, lot's to experience, see and do - it's huge! The staff were attentive and friendly, but needed a little more education on product offering (couldn't answer some key questions on drinks and inclusions without offer to go and check)

P.J O'Brien's Sydney

Sydney CBD

Courtenay dined on Sun, 8th Sep 2019 (9)

Fantastic specials (we had the Sunday roast) with lovely quick service and a great atmosphere (live music and live sports) - there's something for everyone!

Chat Thai Circular Quay

Sydney CBD

Courtenay dined on Sun, 8th Sep 2019 (6)

We went for quite an early lunch (11am) as we'd skipped breakfast, the restaurant was quiet (as expected for that time) but the service was still relatively slow. My husbands meal came out about 15 minutes before mine, so he was almost finished by the time mine arrived. This was a little disappointing and meant we couldn't really enjoy our meal together. The food was quite tasty at a reasonable price (for us as we had a $20 Fork voucher), but not sure I would have been as content had we paid full price


Melbourne CBD

Courtenay dined on Sat, 31st Aug 2019 (10)

Such an amazing place this was for great food, fantastic service and lovely atmosphere! We had such an amazing night catching up with friends, a lovely night!

Si Senorita


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

Delicious food (the beef Nachos in particular were my favourite!) generous portions at great prices, only had a relatively small menu though, but what we did have was amazing! Lovely and quick service too. The only thing letting it down a bit was a lack of atmosphere l, but it was a Wednesday night in fairness!

El Camino Cantina Melbourne


Courtenay dined on Sun, 18th Aug 2019 (7)

We visited for half price fajita night. While the value of $15 is great, I wouldn’t have felt the value at its full price! The corn chips and salsa station was fantastic but the fajita wasn’t my favourite. The meat was amazing but not enough vegetables and I would’ve preferred the sour cream, cheese and salsa separate rather than all together!

Mamma’s Boy Trattoria


Courtenay dined on Sat, 17th Aug 2019 (10)

We dined on the $29 bottomless lasagne option which was fantastic! We were able to share 3 types of savoury lasagne (bolognese, seafood and vegan) and then a “dessert lasagne” AKA tiramisu! The service was fantastic and the venue itself was quaint and beautiful. There were bags of pasta, cans of tomato, biscuits and olive oil all for sale as well, which was a lovely touch. All in all a fantastic lunch date!

Le Bon Ton


Courtenay dined on Wed, 14th Aug 2019 (9)

Absolutely loved our business lunch here! We went with a group of colleagues to celebrate a birthday and all ordered individual dishes which we all enjoyed! I had the Kitchen Sink Salad with Blackened Market Fish and it was AMAZING! I didn't even have food envy for my colleagues who had delicious smoked meats and chips, the salad was wholesome and delicious! The atmosphere was lovely with a beautiful woodfire smell throughout and the staff let us split the bill and pay for individual dishes at the end making it so much easier to manage a big group lunch!


Melbourne CBD

Courtenay dined on Wed, 31st Jul 2019 (9)

The weekday happy hour with drinks and snacks before a meal is a fantastic idea! The food was flavoursome and the service lovely. Really enjoyed our dinner here as part of a group catch-up with friends

Tutto Bene


Courtenay dined on Tue, 30th Jul 2019 (7)

We attended for Test Kitchen Tuesday where the proposed new dishes are trialled (set 4-course menu for $40pp). Being a trial we can’t expect all dishes to be perfect, and there were a few misses for me (pasta dish was a little bland and serving utensils not the best, for example a fork to eat a ice cream dish and not spoon or bread for mains that came with a sauce) but still very tasty. The service was attentive and lovely, but the restaurant was packed and acoustics made it so loud I could barely hear my husband across the table! Overall a nice dinner experience though and worth a visit

Caffe E Cucina

South Yarra

Courtenay dined on Fri, 5th Jul 2019 (10)

Such an amazing place, a little on the expensive side but that was made up for by the fantastic service and delicious food! Lovely vibe with the waiters all greeting in Italian giving it a really authentic experience. The food was fresh, rich, tasty and delicious, a great night!

Angus & Bon


Courtenay dined on Sat, 18th May 2019 (7)

We came to try the new breakfast menu. The service was fantastic, the staff were really attentive and lovely. I tried the coddled eggs which was a completely different texture to what I was used to, nice enough but I wouldn't rush back for it. My husband had the banana bread though and I had massive food envy, that was absolutely delicious!!!


Melbourne CBD

Courtenay dined on Mon, 13th May 2019 (8)

Really enjoyed the food, very tasty! Slightly overpriced when ordering individual meals but good value when getting platters and larger sizes to share. Strong beer menu (of course) but for those of us who don't drink alcohol it was a little light on. Great venue and atmosphere with really good service. Definately try to leave room for dessert, the apfelstrudel is delicious!

Promenade Restaurant


Courtenay dined on Sat, 4th May 2019 (7)

We expected the atmosphere to be amazing given the location, but unfortunately the terrace area was quite loud and echoed and the sun setting the way it did made it come straight through into our eyes so we needed to wear our sunglasses while trying to enjoy our high tea! The food was quite lovely overall though, but I the scones could use a bit of work, they were quite small and dense rather than light and fluffy.

Feast of Merit


Courtenay dined on Fri, 8th Feb 2019 (8)

We made our own banquet style feed me option and it was great! The food was delicious and the service lovely! A great spot for dinner to celebrate and catch-up with friends!


Melbourne CBD

Courtenay dined on Tue, 5th Feb 2019 (10)

The food was just spectacular! My husband and I chose to do a la carte, but still wanted to share each dish to get a full range, and the team were so fantastic that they split each started and main before serving to us, so we didn't have to split it ourselves and both got the great presentation and experience of fantastic dishes! They also served them seperately so we felt we had so many courses when we really just had a starter each, a main each and a dessert platter. Such fantastic and attentive service, great for a special occasion!

Turf Bar

Melbourne CBD

Courtenay dined on Sat, 19th Jan 2019 (9)

Great option for a meal and a few drinks while watching a sporting match! My favourite pub option in the CBD!

Black Toro Windsor


Courtenay dined on Sun, 9th Dec 2018 (10)

The food was absolutely delicious and the service was fantastic. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we understood the menu, the cuisines, the options and any dietaries. We made our own share plates and enjoyed all of the dishes, slow roasted lamb shoulder was an absolute winner!



Courtenay dined on Fri, 7th Dec 2018 (9)

The $59 for 2 people offer is fantastic! The food tastes delicious and the portion sizes are huge! Initially I had my eye on the Nutella pizza for dessert, but we couldn’t fit another thing in after an entree and main each! The service was fantastic, lots of smiles and a few jokes, always nice! Very lovely experience, thank you!


Melbourne CBD

Courtenay dined on Sat, 1st Dec 2018 (10)

There are only positive things to say! The food was absolutely delicious (nothing can beat freshly made pasta paired with a fantastic array of bite-sized starters, sides and desserts) and the service was absolutely fantastic. The staff were attentive, friendly and funny, and always willing to make our experience more enjoyable and easy, even splitting the bill 6 ways at the end to make things easier for our group, even on a busy Saturday night. This is a must try place for a beautiful Italian feast, a fantastic way to celebrate my birthday!



Courtenay dined on Sun, 18th Nov 2018 (10)

The food was fantastic, a real sensory and taste experience delivered in an exciting way, it really was a “food journey”! The staff are fantastic and very knowledgeable about the food and the menu, and always willing to engage and answer questions. The ambiance was wonderful and the background music a perfect touch. It was the best way to celebrate our wedding anniversary!

The Fox Hotel

South Brisbane

Courtenay dined on Fri, 16th Nov 2018 (10)

Amazing! Perfect location and layout for a relaxed and chilled afternoon at the pub with a few drinks and some delicious pizza! Try the $4 pizza during happy hour, fantastic value!!



Courtenay dined on Sun, 14th Oct 2018 (9)

The food was absolutely delicious, couldn't pick a winning dish, they were all amazing! The empanadas were a fantastic way to start the meal!

Juno and May


Courtenay dined on Thu, 4th Oct 2018 (10)

We created our own share menu and all of the food was amazing, we couldn't pick a favourite they were all so good!!


Melbourne CBD

Courtenay dined on Wed, 3rd Oct 2018 (7)

Ambiance was very nice, staff were attentive and friendly, the food was quite nice (but slightly overpriced for size), but a large focus on the extensive wine list (I don't drink so can't comment, but my other guests loved it)!

The Hof Downtown


Courtenay dined on Wed, 19th Sep 2018 (8)

Pork knuckle = delicious!!!

Hochi Mama

Melbourne CBD

Courtenay dined on Thu, 16th Aug 2018 (9)

The food was delicious, and the "Me Hungry Now" deal of $59 for 2 people (2 small plates, 2 large plates and 1 side dish) was fantastic. The service was attentive, particularly after we notified the staff that we had an event to get to quite quickly afterwards), except for bringing the bill at the end. The only negative was that with the acoustics it was so very loud in the venue, my husband and I couldn't hear ourselves talk.


Melbourne CBD

Courtenay dined on Sat, 26th May 2018 (9)

Salt and Pepper Chicken was absolutely delicious, must try this! Try lots of dishes, they are all amazing!



Courtenay dined on Fri, 25th May 2018 (8)

Fettucini (braised lamb) was truly amazing!

Oscar's Table


Courtenay dined on Tue, 24th Apr 2018 (7)

We tried "Taco Tuesday". While the prices of the tacos had changed from what is advertised on their website, they were still decently priced (mostly $3-$5 per taco). The tacos were quite tasty (we tried chicken, beef and pulled pork) but the overall service was basic and limited atmosphere in the restaurant itself. We were in and out in probably 30 minutes, it was just a quick "cheap eats" option really

+39 Pizzeria

Melbourne CBD

Courtenay dined on Wed, 11th Apr 2018 (8)

Pizza was very nice and tasty, slightly soggy in the middle, but expected with so much topping, venue was very loud and crowded with tables close together, definitely a more casual dinner than a fancy night out, but well worth the visit!

Ms Frankie


Courtenay dined on Fri, 16th Mar 2018 (9)

Pasta was just so simple in flavour and truly delicious, the way it should be!

Abacus Bar & Kitchen

South Yarra

Courtenay dined on Fri, 2nd Mar 2018 (9)

Pizza was so delicious!!! Great atmosphere!!

Pizza Farro


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

Amazing! Spelt pizza is fantastic, not sure how I had gone my whole life without it, game changer! Definitely worth a return visit!


Melbourne CBD

Courtenay dined on Sun, 28th Jan 2018 (9)

We dined on the January lunch special, 6 course menu for $40 for min 4 people. We had a wonderful lunch, the courses were perfectly paired and the steak was truly delicious!!


Melbourne CBD

Courtenay dined on Sat, 13th Jan 2018 (8)

I came here with a group of 4 and we created our own share menu (it’s cheaper than the preset ones and you can try a bit more). We were lucky to get in early (6:30) and was amazing until about 8pm, then the music was way too loud so we couldn’t hear each other over dinner anymore and our waitress changed to someone less than impressive. The food however was the redeeming feature! Unfortunately the main dish I wanted to try, the Lamb Schwama, wasn’t available, but everything else was so tasty! If you are going just for dinner, I would suggest don’t eat for the day and grab a really early dinner booking, so it doesn’t get too loud!

Sake Restaurant & Bar Hamer Hall


Courtenay dined on Mon, 20th Nov 2017 (9)

My husband and I were celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary, and this venue did not disappoint for our celebrations! The service was amazing, the food was delicious and the views were great over the Yarra! Highly recommend a visit here, and especially the Ginger Chicken, YUM!

Berth Restaurant


Courtenay dined on Fri, 28th Jul 2017 (9)

Beautiful setting and lovely dinner (Pappardelle Duck Ragu was amazing!) and will definately be coming back to try the brunch options soon!


South Wharf

Courtenay dined on Wed, 12th Jul 2017 (10)

The Beef Short Ribs were AMAZING!!

A25 Espresso (CBD)

Melbourne CBD

Courtenay dined on Wed, 3rd May 2017 (9)

Our second visit to A25 Pizzeria was wonderful! We tried the Bunga Bunga and the Crazy Zucca which were both delicious (my favourite was the Crazy Zucca but I am a real potato and pumpkin fan!) Amazing service by the staff and a friendly and relaxed atmosphere for mid-week dining after a move. I strongly recommend A25 in Melbourne CBD!

A25 South Yarra

South Yarra

Courtenay dined on Fri, 28th Apr 2017 (6)

Pizza was very nice and authentic, but we were overcharged for drinks. The owner was very quick to apologise on social media though and offer complimentary drinks next time which was lovely, not sure if the logistics to honour this though, but the sentiment was lovely! Pizza was tasty and well priced for a larger serve and the coffee was very tasty!

Son of a Pizzaiolo


Courtenay dined on Sat, 18th Mar 2017 (6)

Nice location and Cebu, outside seating was lovely, wasn't a big fan of the Acai Bowl (mainly the granola was more seeds than traditional granola), but that's just personal preference! Coffee was great and I definately will go back for lunch, the pizzas sound delicious!


Melbourne CBD

Courtenay dined on Sat, 4th Mar 2017 (8)

Plenty of options, all delicious!!

Seoulja Boy

Melbourne CBD

Courtenay dined on Tue, 14th Feb 2017 (7)

An enjoyable evening, disappointing that a few of the menu items were unavailable (especially on Valentines Day when couples are out celebrating), but still quite nice

Taco Bill - Collins St

Melbourne CBD

Courtenay dined on Sat, 31st Dec 2016 (7)

The meals were nice, quite tasty and a decent size. The device on the other hand was poor, I had to ask 3 times for my side dish to be provided (they kept forgetting) and then when it finally came, no apology, just dumped it on the table. I proceeded to then eat my meal on my own as the rest of my group had finished as the side dish had taken so long to arrive!

Cafe Va Bene


Courtenay dined on Fri, 30th Dec 2016 (7)

Food was tasty (muesli and healthy breakfast), but the service was nothing spectacular, not bad, just nothing over and above to add to the experience of dining at this restaurant

Sukhumvit Soi 38


Courtenay dined on Thu, 29th Dec 2016 (8)

Food was really fresh and tasty, great flavour combinations! Staff were very knowledgeable with the menu and offerings. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal, but very loud and difficult to talk in a group would be my only comment (difficult for the restaurant to change this though!) overall a great experience!

Star of Siam

Adelaide CBD

Courtenay dined on Tue, 27th Dec 2016 (9)

Always delicious food!

Squires Loft Docklands


Courtenay dined on Sat, 3rd Dec 2016 (10)

The steak was amazing, great options for sides, and an all round great experience! Will definately bring groups of our friends along next time too!

Short Black Cafe.


Courtenay dined on Sat, 3rd Dec 2016 (8)

Veggie breakfast was delicious and great value, coffee was great too!

Saigon Sally


Courtenay dined on Fri, 18th Nov 2016 (10)

The meal was delicious and the experience wonderful! My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary, and Saigon Sally did not disappoint!

Cafe Va Bene


Courtenay dined on Sat, 12th Nov 2016 (10)

A friend and I had breakfast which turned into a lunch! The vibe was relaxed and friendly and we could have sat there chatting, drinking and eating all day!


Melbourne CBD

Courtenay dined on Tue, 20th Sep 2016 (7)

The food was nice, not my favourite but not bad at all, and one of the waitressses seemed to be in a bad mood that night, but the venue was lovely and I enjoyed the atmosphere for a low-key pizza bar

The Vintage Cafe on The Rocks

The Rocks

Courtenay dined on Sat, 17th Sep 2016 (7)

Mediterranean vegetable salad was delicious! The venue was cozy and quiet, very surprising given the markets were just a few streets over!

The Merrywell Melbourne


Courtenay dined on Tue, 13th Sep 2016 (9)

The service was great, the views were beautiful, and the food was delicious! I would certainly return (but try the Merrywell burger next time!)

Ginger Leaf Thai


Courtenay dined on Mon, 12th Sep 2016 (8)

We were late for our booking, but the service staff were lovely about it and accommodated us anyway! Delicious food and quick service, perfect for a weeknight dinner after a long day at work!

Courtenay hasn't selected a top 10 yet.
