If you love authentic Italian cooking complete with Italian wait staff this is the place to go. It’s been an icon in the restaurant community for many many years. Standing the rest of time this fabulous restaurant is and has been a destination for movie stars, politicians and people of all ethnicities! We ashamed the Penne Bolognese and the signature dish Spaghetti Machiavelli!! We enjoyed a bottle of Robert Oatley Chardonnay just fabulous! Great atmosphere and tables are far enough apart you don’t hear other people chatting! Don’t miss this restaurant but please book first and it’s open Monday to Friday only.

The Cottage Bar & Kitchen

Great food! Fabulous service. This restaurant is such a little gem full of character and the two young boys who own the place run it with care and love. Don’t miss this out make a booking and turn up! Friday lunch has freshest SYDNEY Rock Oysters for $1 each!!!! From 12-3pm. Wonderful menu for Sharing.

Mumu Grill

Crows Nest

Karen dined on Thu, 10th Nov 2011 (9)

We found one of the outside waiters to be unfriendly and rude in the way he cleared the table. All my friends said the same thing about him. MuMu, you'd better get this guy to lighten up or else you may lose customers.
