Matteo Downtown

Service was pretty quick, it was quite bustling too. Oysters, antipasto board and tiramisu were good. Pasta was a bit so-so.

Muum Maam

A very good experience. The staff were attentive & friendly. Overall quality of the food was great especially the chicken satay and the slow cooked beef curry - a must try. Wont hurt to throw in a bit more prawn in the green papaya salad. *happy belly* and will come back soon.

Service was fast but think I ordered too much on that day. Fav dish is the crispy tofu, the Macau style pork bun is not bad.

Bambini Trust

Attentive service from both the sommelier & the waittress. Good knowledge of the wine & chef's daily special. Love the spatchcock.

No.10 Bistro 10 Macquarie Street Sydney

Sydney CBD

Cecilia dined on Thu, 19th Apr 2018 (8)

Attentive service - when they realised they mistaken 'mediun rare' as 'medium well', they quicky updated the chef & had redo the order. Food was yummy. My colleagues were happy.

I'm Angus Steakhouse

Darling Harbour

Cecilia dined on Fri, 23rd Mar 2018 (8)

Steak was nice, cooked to perfection. Service was alrite, reckon it was a bit understaffed on a Friday. It took them a while to return us the change after we had paid.

Rengaya

North Sydney

Cecilia dined on Fri, 9th Mar 2018 (9)

Good service, good food. Always love a restaurant that serve scallops with roe & shell.

Jpb Restaurant

Sydney CBD

Cecilia dined on Fri, 2nd Mar 2018 (8)

The sirloin was overcooked on 1st attempt, got it right i.e. medium rare on 2nd attempt. Other than that, all gd.

Jpb Restaurant

Cecilia dined on Sat, 27th Jan 2018 (8)

Gd food & gd service.

The Morrison Bar & Oyster Room

Sydney CBD

Cecilia dined on Wed, 13th Dec 2017 (5)

Bad news & good news. The bad news - A colleague of mine found a piece of plastic wrapping sticked to his grass fed eye fillet. The good news - the restaurant manager handled it well by allowing my colleague to substitute it with another main dish at no extra cost. Hopefully it is just a crazy error during a busy & festive season. Food in general was avg but service and ambient were alright. May be stick to their oysters & clams, and chicken lollipop just to be safe.

Fratelli Fresh Westfield Sydney

Sydney CBD

Cecilia dined on Wed, 26th Apr 2017 (7)

Overall good but I was sadden by the fact that they did not offer the Lobster large tube pasta for lunch. When I checked today, it disappeared completely from their menu. Meaning it is not even serve for dinner ? :-( But I still love their tiramisu.

NOLA Smokehouse and Bar

Barangaroo

Cecilia dined on Tue, 18th Apr 2017 (8)

Nice view especially on a sunny & breezy day. Decent food. Try its oysters rockefeller.

Not bad, food were hot - fresh out from the kitchen. Happy belly.

Kingsleys Australian Steakhouse

Sydney CBD

Cecilia dined on Fri, 17th Mar 2017 (9)

The steak did not disappoint, it was good & cooked to perfection - medium rare ! Friendly staff as well.

Yayoi Garden

Sydney CBD

Cecilia dined on Thu, 9th Mar 2017 (9)

Love it so much that I will be back for sure. Sashimi was fresh. The matcha warabi mochi was yum. Not so noisy, mostly office people. Love love love it!

Cafe Del Mar

Darling Harbour

Cecilia dined on Tue, 31st Jan 2017 (4)

While the service was ok, the food was disappointing. Their bread (sourdough I believe) did not taste like fresh bread, more like leftover - cold, dry & rock hard. Their cured meat were nowhere near as gd as the one served in Balla in The Star or Fratelli Fresh. The Bisteeya of wood pigeon tasted like over-priced dry filo pastry. However the roasted lamb shoulder at the next table looked good. So if anyone ever go there, dont order cured meat & avoid their bread at all costs. Good location & view though.

Fratelli Fresh Bridge Street

Sydney CBD

Cecilia dined on Sat, 28th Jan 2017 (9)

Friendly service and good food. Especially the lady with blonde hair who served us last night. She was very patient in dealing with our changes in the food we ordered. Their portion was not small and we were probably being a bit too greedy last nite & had to cancel and swap out a few. The tiramisu is a must try and we also like the Salumeria board.

Ananas

Sydney CBD

Cecilia dined on Sun, 22nd Jan 2017 (8)

Lovely food especially the chicken liver parfait and the lobster cream that came with the Bouillabaisse. Very friendly and attentive service throughout from Maître d'hôtel (FOH) to all of the staff. Pity I did not get more discount just by having the same name as one of the staff member's sister ;-) *Ha* Will be back :-)
