Four In Hand

Four In Hand, Paddington

September 28, 2011

To be honest I’d not heard a great deal about Four In Hand Dining Room until late 2010 when they received their second hat in the SMH Good Food Guide. Ever since then Mr O has been telling us we have to go. A two hatted pub is not something you see very often and […]

Mamak

Mamak, Haymarket

September 27, 2011

So it’s a Tuesday evening, usually pretty quiet and subdued and you just happen to have planned an early dinner in the city. Fair enough, no booking required eating out is pretty straight forward. You show up, you are seated and that is that. But when your plan involves Mamak be prepared to insert a […]

Bilson's

Gourmet Traveller Reader’s Dinner: Bilson’s, Sydney (Closed)

September 19, 2011

We always seem to be talking about ‘The List’ and I guess it is for a good reason. There are sooooo many restaurants we want to go to and only limited time and money to eat at them all. But if there was a place we needed to bump up ‘The List’ it would have […]

The Montpellier Public House

The Montpellier Public House, Randwick (Closed)

September 15, 2011

‘The List’ of restaurants seems to be never ending and it takes quite some time for us to actually get to restaurants on the list. We finally got to Restaurant Balzac in June and wished we’d got there so much earlier as it wasn’t long after our first visit that chef/owner Matthew Kemp announced he […]

Cala Luna

Cala Luna, Mosman (Relocated)

September 10, 2011

Dylan and I were recently offered to sample a new deal from the group buying website Ouffer. The deal was for lunch for two at Cala Luna in Mosman. We live quite far away from Mosman (then again we live quite far away from most places!) but having heard good things about the restaurant we […]

Bar H

Bar H, Surry Hills

September 9, 2011

Another day, another Spreets deal. We’d heard good things about Bar H and wanted to go there for ages but with this one coupon we were quite undecided as the value just didn’t seem to be there… sure for dinner for two sounded good, but we couldn’t see how it was worth 0. In the […]

Eau De Vie

Eau De Vie, Darlinghurst

September 2, 2011

I’m not really sure how we decided to make a trip to Eau De Vie, but I guess that really doesn’t matter because we’ve wanted to go for quite some time and trying to remember the finer details after spending a few hours at The Argyle seems all too difficult. Nestled in a nice leafy […]

Quay

Quay, The Rocks

September 2, 2011

When Dylan and I were deciding what to do for our 6th anniversary we ummed and ahhed for quite some time. For our 4th anniversary we dined at 4 restaurants (4 for 4), for our 5th anniversary we spent two weeks travelling from Sydney to the Great Ocean Road and Melbourne. We ate a lot […]
