The Dining Room at Park Hyatt Sydney

The Dining Room at Park Hyatt Sydney

When a friend from Melbourne is in town for work during Vivid, there is really only one choice for dinner; The Dining Room at Park Hyatt Sydney. As you can see from the photo, the view from this restaurant are magnificent. Unlike a lot of Sydney restaurants with a...
Captain Cook Long Lunch Cruise

Captain Cook Long Lunch Cruise

Last weekend, I enjoyed a Captain Cook Long Lunch Cruise for my partner’s mum’s birthday. My partner and I joined the cruise at 12pm at King St Wharf, and the rest of our party joined us at Circular Quay ay 12.30pm. 3.5 hours later, we disembarked at...
Drummoyne Sailing Club

Drummoyne Sailing Club

Last night I dropped 1,500 receipts back at a client’s house, which I had entered in Excel for her. On the way home, we decided to drop into Drummoyne Sailing Club for dinner. I can safely say that this was one of the best spontaneous decisions I have made...
Aqua Dining

Aqua Dining

A couple of days ago, my boyfriend and I were taking out friends from the UK who were only in Sydney for a few days. We wanted somewhere with a view of course, as one does with overseas guests, and eventually decided on Aqua Dining. I had been here before, but not for...
Bennelong Restaurant: Cured & Cultured

Bennelong Restaurant: Cured & Cultured

A week last Sunday, a good friend from Melbourne told me that she would be in Sydney for a couple of days and was I free for dinner on Tuesday night. That gave me just 48 hours to find somewhere fabulous. I like to take overseas and interstate guests somewhere with a...
The Theatre Bar at the End of The Wharf

The Theatre Bar at the End of The Wharf

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...
The Deck

The Deck

We dined at The Deck last night, to enjoy the start of Vivid Sydney. It is the perfect bar/restaurant, from which to enjoy The Harbour Bridge changing colour over the next two weeks (from 6pm-midnight). As well as stunning views, the food and service was also...
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 Island Bar

The Island Bar

Could there be a better spot for a bar in Sydney, nay the World? The Island Bar on Cockatoo Island was made for a Sydney Summer’s Day. I have been here many times, including for the 2013 and 2014 Time Out Bar Awards. If you are planning to go here, make sure you check...
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...
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 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...
