William Blue Dining The Rocks

William Blue Dining The Rocks

In their own words “William Blue Dining gives (their) vocational students the chance to learn upmarket food and beverage service skills in a live environment”. Having dined at their old restaurant in North Sydney, I decided to take my aunt, uncle and two...
The Stinking Bishops

The Stinking Bishops

If you love cheese as much as me, you will think you have died and gone to heaven as soon as you walk in the door or The Stinking Bishops and see the huge list of cheese options on the wall. We were lucky enough to get 2 seats at the bar within about 5 minutes or...
The Palisades Hotel: Henry Deane Rooftop Bar

The Palisades Hotel: Henry Deane Rooftop Bar

It’s all about the views here. The roof terrace at The Palisades Hotel is great, but I think they rest on their laurels a bit, thanks to the stunning 270-degree views of the Harbour Bridge, city and Barangaroo. I have been twice since it opened a few weeks ago,...

Last Tuesday, I went to see the hilarious Wharf Revue at Sydney Theatre Company. We ummed and aaahed about where to go for dinner beforehand. We thought about the revamped Pallisades Hotel, the newly named View by Sydney (was Dedes on the Wharf) and old faithful Cafe...
Bloodwood

Bloodwood

I dined at Bloodwood years ago and have been meaning to go back for a long time, but since Hartsyard opened in Newtown, Bloodwood has gained some competition! That being said, Bloodwood is damn good, and probably less likely to give you a heart attack than Hartstyard!...

Q Dining

A few weeks ago, my partner and I had tickets to see Billy Connolly at Sydney Opera House. We wanted to eat somewhere nice beforehand, which wasn’t too expensive, was close to the theatre and the food would arrive fairly quickly. We could not have chosen a better...
