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...
O Bar & Dining

O Bar & Dining

When my cousin said she was coming up to Sydney, from Melbourne, for the weekend, I racked my brains on where we should dine last Friday night. I wanted somewhere with a view, but also great food and service. As I have mentioned before, a lot of restaurants with a...
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...
Intercontinental Sydney Supperclub

Intercontinental Sydney Supperclub

Once upon a time you had to go to Melbourne if you wanted a decent rooftop bar. Not anymore. And I can safely say there is not a rooftop bar in Melbourne with views like this. Or anywhere in the world for that matter. Until about a year ago, if you wanted to visit...
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,...
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...
Watershed Kitchen

Watershed Kitchen

I dined at Watershed Kitchen for the first time yesterday. It was just brunch, but I have a feeling I will be back very soon. In addition to the lovely water views and great service, the food is good. Okay, my toast was a bit dry, but nothing the hollandaise sauce...
Kobe Jones Sydney

Kobe Jones Sydney

As part of the Dimmi ‘Let’s Go Halves’ Promotion*, whereby you receive 50% off your food bill at upto 27 different restaurants in Sydney, my partner and I chose to dine at Kobe Jones at King St Wharf. My partner had dined here a few years ago,...
The Boathouse Shelly Beach

The Boathouse Shelly Beach

The Boathouse Shelly Beach is the fourth, and the newest, of The Boathouse Group. You can find here our reviews of The Boathouse Balmoral and The Boathouse Palm Beach. We have not reviewed their other venue, Moby Dicks, yet as it is only open for weddings,...
Omeros on the Beach

Omeros on the Beach

Last night, I dined at Omeros on the Beach, for a family birthday celebration. appropriate really, as it is a family run restaurant. It is the second time I have dined here, and both times the service and food were outstanding. You know you are in good hands when they...
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...
Cafe Sydney

Cafe Sydney

There seems to be a new, hot, trendy restaurant opening in Sydney every week these days (which is great), but sometimes the classics are the best. Cafe Sydney is one of those classics, having stood the test of time for the last 16 years. I was lucky enough to dine...
Coogee Pavilion (Rooftop)

Coogee Pavilion (Rooftop)

I have been to Coogee Pavilion three times since it opened last year, including twice to the Rooftop which opened just after Christmas 2014. In a nutshell, Justin Hemmes has waved his magic wand again. Downstairs is an oasis for little and big kids, whilst upstairs is...
The Dining Room at The Park Hyatt

The Dining Room at The Park Hyatt

The hotel itself was listed on the Condé Nast Traveler 2013 Hot List after a $70m refurbishment in 2012. The restaurant was also updated to emphasise its premier position, which is obvious from the floor to ceiling windows which show off the stunning Opera House and...
Q Dining

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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
25th Floor Restaurant

25th Floor Restaurant

As you can see, the panoramic views from this little known restaurant and bar are stunning! It was located in the Sydney Boulevard Hotel in a somewhat strange location (half way between Hyde Park and The Coca Cola sign), but once you took the lift to the 25th floor,...
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...
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...
