Sunset Food and Wine

Kangaroo Head

The restaurant has a great setting overlooking the bay. The food was fantastic - couldn't fault any dish. Would recommend anyone visiting Kangaroo Island to come here.

Saint Urban is a great little place... seriously good food, always love eating here.

Sosta Cucina

North Melbourne

Frank dined on Thu, 13th Sep 2018 (7)

Food was good and the atmosphere is nice. It's a nice neighbourhood Italian. I thought it was a bit overpriced for the quality and amount of food you got, although they offer BYO so overall spend with wine was reasonable.



Frank dined on Fri, 7th Sep 2018 (6)

I was slightly disappointed. I'd been once before for the Sunday roast which was great. This time I had dinner on Friday evening, and had the $75 set menu. The food was fine, but a little a little underwhelming. The dishes were not bad but nothing was really delicious. I think for the price the quality should have been better. Maybe just an off night.

Great as always. Have been a number of times and the food is consistently good. The prawn pasta dish we had for the first time tonight was fantastic. Service is also excellent.

Saint Urban


Frank dined on Sat, 1st Sep 2018 (9)

Really impressed by Saint Urban. Food was excellent, some of the standout dishes were the chicharronnes (pork crackling), raclette, duck breast and the pain perdu with blueberries and yoghurt icecream. Good wine list, nice atmosphere and great service as well. Will definitely be back.

Il Melograno


Frank dined on Sun, 5th Aug 2018 (9)

Il Melograno make amazing gelato, this was the first time trying the brunch menu. The coffee was very good. For food, we had chilli baked beans, and sardines with potatoes, pesto and salad. The chilli baked beans were excellent. The sardine dish was also good - sardines a little dry but potatoes with pesto were great.

Harrisons by Spencer Patrick

Port Douglas

Frank dined on Fri, 15th Jun 2018 (7)

We had the tasing menu. Food was good. Particularly enjoyed the prawn tortellini and treacle tart desert. I thought the portion sizes were a little small - could have done with some potatoes or vegetables with the meat dish maybe. The service was friendly but slow.
