Bennelong - Cured & Cultured

Sydney CBD

Donelle dined on Sun, 23rd Jun 2019 (10)

I would eat at Bennelong every week if I could. From the greetings when you walk in the door to the good byes at the end the experience is one of being spoiled and pampered. The food is innovative and oh so very tasty. This time we ordered the Chefs tasting menu. Everything was stunning, but the Sydney rock oysters and Bresaola and Polenta hot cakes was my personal stand outs!

North Bondi Fish

Great dining even on a very stormy night. Great service and super fresh seafood.

Dish Sri Lankan Street Food Glebe


Donelle dined on Wed, 27th Feb 2019 (9)

We were a group of 6 and loved all our choices. The prawn curry, lamb biriyani and roti parathas deserves a special mention- and the sago butterscotch desert

We went during the The Fork 50% off promotion, so fantastic value for money. We could order double portions of the scallops we love

Riley St Garage


Donelle dined on Sat, 2nd Feb 2019 (8)

Great dinner at one of my favourite Sydney restaurants.

Bert's Bar & Brasserie


Donelle dined on Tue, 1st Jan 2019 (9)

We had a fabulous New Year’s Day lunch here. What a gorgeous restaurant with comfy couches and chairs looking out over Pitwater, and then you move on to your table for a feast of food. Juicy fresh oysters on ice, gorgeous pasta’s. Super fresh seafood and perfectly cooked steak. Oh - and the perfect broccoli and potatoes. Service was perfect, wine and cocktail list extensive.

The Pacific Club Bondi Beach

Bondi Beach

Donelle dined on Tue, 4th Dec 2018 (9)

Fabulous new restaurant that recently opened in Bondi. As I live just round the corner this has quickly become my new favourite “local” Gorgeous food, good service and then a walk on the beach


Surry Hills

Donelle dined on Tue, 27th Nov 2018 (9)

Match made in heaven - Brae meets Firedoor function. Every dish was more amazing than the previous one.

Lovely night - loved the cheese soufflé

Kid Kyoto

Sydney CBD

Donelle dined on Thu, 8th Feb 2018 (10)

What a little gem - from the first little bite we were hooked. I was a little bit scared it would be very noisey, but the volume was just right so that we could still talk - what a fabulous playlist. Every dish was great and we will definitely visit again very soon.

Chaco Bar


Donelle dined on Thu, 11th Jan 2018 (10)

One of my favourite sydney Japanese restaurants. Once again gorgeous food

Blanca Japanese Mediterranean Dining

Bondi Beach

Donelle dined on Sat, 27th May 2017 (10)

We loved our visit to Blanca. Gorgeous dishes - amazing flavours. The Oysters, Blanca Black bun with soft shell crab, and the Burrata and Artichoke was specific crowd favourites on the night. Can't wait to return

It was my second visit to Anason, and will not be my last. All the dishes are so full of flavour and generous servings.



Donelle dined on Thu, 5th Jan 2017 (10)

What a fabulous lunch we had. We ordered a range of dishes to share between 6 and everything was delicious. Flavours are amazing, and left us wanting to come back for more.

I love Sagra - it is such a gorgeous restaurant in the hustle and bustle of Stanley street. The menu is relatively small, and changes often depending on what produce is available, but each dish is perfect. Portions are not too big, so it is fun to order a variety of dishes.

Lucky Tsotsi Shebeen & Bar


Donelle dined on Thu, 27th Oct 2016 (9)

A must try to experience authentic South African dishes. My dining group keep on asking about South African dishes, so we had a lovely night introducing them to samosas, bunny chow, boerewors , spare ribs and the most amazing peri-peri prawns! Love the atmosphere, and great service.
