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 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...
Kent Street Kitchen

Kent Street Kitchen

Thanks to an amazing deal on Travelzoo, last night my friend and I enjoyed 2 courses and a Bellini on arrival for less than $100 (for both of us) at Kent Street Kitchen! Kent Street Kitchen is the main restaurant at The Langham Sydney, and having enjoyed their...
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,...
Sake, The Rocks – Round 2

Sake, The Rocks – Round 2

A few weeks ago, I dined at Sake Restaurant in The Rocks and wrote a less than flattering review of the service. It is unfortunate that this was our first visit, but I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt and dine there again with my boyfriend. They are an...
Sake, The Rocks

Sake, The Rocks

I have been wanting to try Sake Restaurant in The Rocks for ages, and finally dined there last night with my partner and friends. We had chosen the second sitting at 8pm. My friends were not keen on the traditional sunken dining and they swiftly moved us to a normal...
Afternoon Tea with Wedgewood at The Langham

Afternoon Tea with Wedgewood at The Langham

The Langham in Sydney recently re-opened after a $30m refurb, so when a friend decided to celebrate becoming an Australian citizen (as a Brit, with Australian citizenship, the irony he chose to do something very English didn’t escape me), I was as excited to see how...
Quay

Quay

My expectations were high when I found out my boyfriend was taking me Quay (the World’s 60th Best Restaurant) for our anniversary, but nonetheless I was extremely impressed. The views were outstanding, the food was amazing and the service was good (they could have...
Harringtons

Harringtons

Admittedly, our visit here at Harringtons in Quay West was not a usual one. It was New Year’s Eve 2014/15 and the 6-course menu included 6 full courses. We were expecting a degustation menu, but no, there were 2 full-sized entrees, 2 full-sized mains and 2 full-sized...
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...
