The Honey Bee

The Honey Bee

I have to admit that I don’t dine out in the burbs very often, but I would definitely do it a lot more, if they were all as good as this! We ate here for a family birthday and I was blown away by how good it was. That sound a little patronising, and I don’t mean it to...
Da Orazio Pizza + Porchetta

Da Orazio Pizza + Porchetta

I had been looking forward to going here for ages, well ever since it opened really and I heard Maurice Terzini (of Icebergs etc fame) was one of Da Orazio‘s owners. It is completely different to Icebergs though, so don’t go there expecting fine dining and ocean...
The Grounds of Alexandria

The Grounds of Alexandria

This has to be my favourite cafe in all of Sydney! Unfortunately, The Grounds of Alexandria seems to be the favourite for all 4.5 million of the other Sydneysiders too! Here are my top tips to survive your visit: It is open from 7am-4pm in the week and 7.30am-4pm on...
Blackwattle Cafe

Blackwattle Cafe

I have been to this cafe many times. It is always good, except the one time they forgot our coffee order, but nobody is perfect, right? Blackwattle Cafe is pretty much the ideal local cafe. I mean look at those views! They also have a grassy lawn, which is great for...
The Builder’s Arms Bistro

The Builder’s Arms Bistro

I wish I could say I dined at The Builder’s Arm’s Moon Under Water fine dining restaurant, but on this occasion I dined with friends at the Bistro. I wasn’t disappointed though. It is just like the famous gastropubs in London. The beer garden in particular reminds me...
Bruny Island Self-Drive Gourmet Food Tour

Bruny Island Self-Drive Gourmet Food Tour

For my birthday last year, my partner took me to Hobart for a long weekend. On day one, we ended up spontaneously deciding to visit Bruny Island. Best. Decision. Ever! We didn’t have a huge amount of time as we were meeting friends for dinner in Hobart that evening,...
Peat’s Bite

Peat’s Bite

UPDATED on January 14th 2016 – Last weekend I dined at Peats Bite for the third time, and I can honestly say it just gets better on every visit. Each time I build it up so much, I am worried that my friends who have not been before will be disappointed. I am...
Mori Sushi

Mori Sushi

My partner & I ate here tonight in Glebe, and it was pretty good. You can order a la carte, or choose the All You Can Eat option. We chose the latter of course. It costs $29.50 each for the Standard menu, where you can choose anything on the a la carte menu...
Burger Project

Burger Project

When Burger Project was opened late last year by Neil Perry, of Rockpool and Qantas fame, I got my hopes up. Despite that, I didn’t eat there until last night (9th January 2015). I guess by this point, my expectations were too high. After all, the burgers in the bar...
Kirribilli Club

Kirribilli Club

Whilst this venue is not as posh as it might sound, the views make up for that! It was dark when I went for friends for dinner and my phone camera at the time was not much good, so you just need to check the views out for yourself. It is a little bit like an RSL...
Reuben Hills

Reuben Hills

Okay, I admit it. The main reason I wanted to go Reuben Hills was for the Salted Caramel Milkshake. And boy, it didn’t disappoint. Food wise, I was really tempted by the Banana Peanuts & Espresso Bread with salted caramel butter, but decided reluctantly that you...
Watson’s Bay Hotel

Watson’s Bay Hotel

The Watson’s Bay Hotel always had the perfect location; next to the beach and a ferry wharf, and with views of the harbour to boot. But since the new look opened in October 2013, it has it all. With the huge makeover, the prices have gone up slightly, but if you like...
Woolwich Pier Hotel

Woolwich Pier Hotel

The Woolwich Pier Hotel has to be the perfect local’s pub! I only wish I was a local, so I could enjoy it more often. Having said that, the ferry to Woolwich is a great way to travel there. It seems I am not alone in my thinking…it was recently voted The Best Pub in...
The Boathouse Palm Beach

The Boathouse Palm Beach

This is the first of 3 Boathouses in Sydney (excluding The Boathouse on Blackwattle Bay, which has a different owner). This one is the inaugural one. There is also a second in Balmoral (see our review here) and a third one will follow soon at Shelly Beach (previously...
The Boathouse Balmoral

The Boathouse Balmoral

The Boathouse at Balmoral is the second Boathouse in Sydney (excluding The Boathouse on Blackwattle Bay, which has a different owner). The first in Palm Beach of course (see our review here) and a third one will follow soon at Shelley Beach (previously Le Kiosk). We...

Seafood Fish Markets

If you like seafood, the Seafood Fish Markets, overlooking Blackwattle Bay, would seem like the obvious choice for lunch. Unfortunately though, a lot of people buy their Christmas Day prawns and oysters there, but forget that they do eat-in cooked food, as well as raw...
Flying Fish

Flying Fish

The oysters were amazing! As was everything we tried. The views, even in the evening, are stunning, though Vivid Sydney was on at the time, so seeing the Bridge all lit up help. Can’t wait to go back!!! In sum, go here for great seafood and great...
Harbour View Hotel

Harbour View Hotel

I celebrated my 40th birthday here last night and had a great time with family and friends. Amazingly, despite its central location, there was no room hire fee or even a minimum spend for the Balcony Area. Even better, despite booking the part of the balcony for about...
