Martha's Restaurant

Castlecrag

Simon dined on Fri, 1st Feb 2013 (9)

Excellent as always. Had lunch yesterday at Est and Martha's today is not far behind that quality. If they were in the city they could easily add 50% to their prices. Luckily they are not!

Restaurant Arras

Sydney CBD

Simon dined on Wed, 24th Oct 2012 (8)

Excellent fit-out and ambience. Just did the Good Food Month lunch which was lovely. Query the "compulsory" gratuity. A bit too American for me. Tips in Australia are meant to be earned. In this case they would have been but the default tip leaves a funny feeling as you exit the restaurant ... not the last thought you want on diners' minds I would have thought.

La Grillade

Cremorne

Simon dined on Wed, 12th Sep 2012 (7)

Overall good value

La Grillade

Cremorne

Simon dined on Wed, 12th Sep 2012 (8)

Excellent steaks. Some of the best in Sydney!

Public Dining Room

Mosman

Simon dined on Thu, 14th Jun 2012 (8)

Great location and space. Mid week dining is great as (almost) guaranteed window table and you can observe the exercisers as you dine! All round lovely dining experience. Large restaurant but love the way the restaurant has (unlike many) not crammed the tables close so there is a beautiful sense of space which truly does justice to the great views and adds to the experience. Food and service very good. Wine list has a few gems on it. Would like some more Hunter Semillon (Australia's greatest wine gift to the World) on the list but perhaps I am biased.

Flying Fish

Sydney CBD

Simon dined on Tue, 13th Sep 2011 (7)

Great dining experience. Fabulous view, great atmosphere. Query value for money - quite expensive even for Sydney fine dining. Entree tapas and cod really good. Rose cream cigars a bit let down. Generous serves of cheese on the cheese plate which is unusal in sydney. Best chips in sydney!

Bentley Restaurant & Bar

Sydney CBD

Simon dined on Fri, 5th Aug 2011 (8)

Food was very good. Service was appropraitely attentive and ambience excellent. Would go again.
