12 Micron


Noel dined on Thu, 16th Aug 2018 (7)

Perfectly fine - but given how 12-Micron positions itself, expected a little more from the food, drink and service. Again, perfectly fine - but, I don't think that's what 12-Micron aspires to be.

Kid Kyoto

Sydney CBD

Love coming here - currently my favourite restaurant to frequent.

The Meat & Wine Co Barangaroo


Noel dined on Wed, 23rd May 2018 (8)

Great new space in Barangaroo. The fit out is chic, yet comfortable and inviting for a large meal... we had the full rack of ribs which were great.

L'Hotel Gitan


Noel dined on Wed, 18th Apr 2018 (7)

Good attentive service. Food mostly good. Basically empty for Weds lunch, which killed atmosphere a bit.

The Botanist Kirribilli


Noel dined on Tue, 3rd Apr 2018 (8)

Food was great and service was warm and attentive. A local favourite.

Yayoi Garden

Sydney CBD

Noel dined on Tue, 27th Mar 2018 (8)

Came for business dinner - great to go somewhere where you can hear each other; seemingly a rarity these days!

Fratelli Fresh Bridge Street

Sydney CBD

Noel dined on Wed, 14th Mar 2018 (8)

Great food and friendly/fun service. Hosted a 6 party business meeting - table was very loud, so we requested a move to a quieter area which they facilitated with no hassles - we were very appreciative of that.

Red Spice Road

Melbourne CBD

Noel dined on Tue, 6th Mar 2018 (9)

Amazing food, great service.

Ripples Milsons Point

Milsons Point

Noel dined on Tue, 10th Oct 2017 (7)

Good venue for a 6 pax business dinner. Service was professional and attentive.

The Cut Bar & Grill

The Rocks

Noel dined on Fri, 18th Aug 2017 (9)

Love coming here - never disappoints. My guest said it's the best steak he's ever had.

Bowery Lane

Sydney CBD

Noel dined on Thu, 17th Aug 2017 (8)

Had a few shared plates between two for an information business catch-up over wine. Scallops were notable. Really great service.

The Rook

Sydney CBD

Noel dined on Wed, 16th Aug 2017 (7)

Lunch on Wednesday didn't have the atmosphere I've been accustomed to for after-work drinks - but still, an enjoyable experience for a business lunch. Service was slow, but explained up-front - so can't complain. Will still go again - definitely holds its place in the lunch rotation.

Muum Maam


Noel dined on Tue, 20th Jun 2017 (7)

Good value for quick lunch in Barangaroo. The food was good and came out really quick. Felt tables were a little close together to be completely comfortable and I'm not a big fan of self-order on paper, but for price-point, feel silly complaining about anything.


Sydney CBD

Noel dined on Thu, 15th Jun 2017 (9)

First time at Silvester's - great experience. The new fit-out is both classy and comfortable; often hard to achieve. I understand the restaurant is only 2 months old but was a little surprised by the lack of other diners for Thursday lunch given the quality of food, wine and fit-out. Looking forward to going again.

Locanda Restaurant & Bar

Melbourne CBD

Noel dined on Fri, 9th Jun 2017 (7)

Had a great time, but perhaps more because of my company than the venue. A little on the loud side and the wait-staff seemed confused on check-in. Satisfied with food, but not spectacular, and happy with the wine - pretty good wine list.

Rockpool at Alfred Place

Melbourne CBD

Noel dined on Thu, 8th Jun 2017 (8)

Came here for a business dinner so we arrived quite early (5:15pm) and as such, we were the only patrons which killed the atmosphere a little. Loved the fitout and fratelli is always a reliable meal. Had great service, and enjoyed our drinks.

The Meat & Wine Co Hawthorn East

Hawthorn East

Had a business lunch here and really enjoyed it. Good, friendly service, good food, good wine, good atmosphere and nothing to complain about.
