Angelo's on the Bay

Reviewed By Scruffy0506 - Sydney, Australia

If you are looking for a casually elegant and quiet restaurant with gorgeous views and delicious food, Angelo’s will not disappoint. Set in Prince Edward Park, every table has a view of the parklands and Hen & Chicken Bay which the restaurant overlooks.
Thanks to generous spacing between tables and carpetted floors, it’s possible to have conversation without needing to bellow at your dining companions which is a welcome change from most modern restaurants.
I’m always happy when I can order a cocktail to start the evening and the wine list is good. (You may bring your own but their corkage fee makes it obvious they would prefer you not.) The modern Australian / Italian menu consists of both individual and share-plate options and servings are generous. On my recent visit, the tempura zucchini flowers were a big hit and although quite a polarizing vegetable, I loved my entree of Brussels sprouts with almonds and apple!
There are meat/fish/pasta options for Mains and a small dessert selection. Service is non-intrusive, friendly and efficient. If you are planning a weekend visit, probably best to check there are no functions as the venue is extremely popular for large celebrations.
All in all, it’s easy to understand why Angelo’s has been a local institution for so long.

Visited for a special occasion,booked in advance.Warm welcome by all staff.Enjoyed the duck risotto,lots of duck in the dish.Szechuan crusted kangaroo was tender and juicy,Wilted Zucchini Flower, King Brown Mushrooms with Asian Glaze was a good compliment to the meat.Loved the dessert,nougat and hazelnut icecream.Also tasted the Peach and mango souffle.Nice generous serve.There was fresh bread coming around so for those who do not choose an entree there a few bread varieties and butter to enjoy.
After the meal we went for a walk around the place and found it very interesting.Nice spot for that group photo.will return for another special treat:-)

Grappa Ristorante & Bar

Reviewed By Emilia718 - Sydney, Australia

My family and I went here on a Saturday and it was quite busy and lively. Despite this, the service was impeccable, and we got our food quite quickly. For our entree, we had chorizo sausages (a little spicy, but not overpowering). The crab spaghettini was delicious, the pizza was perfect and the array of wines and beers were great. One word of advice: specify whether you'd like to order individual, or share your meals with your guests. The server assumed we were all sharing the meals, rather than ordering individually. Nonetheless, this just allowed us all to enjoy a bit of everything off the menu.
It is expensive, but it is well worth it. Would definitely recommend, and visit again.

Efendy

Efendy means gentleman in old Turkish, but everyone is welcome here. Located on the corner of Darling and Elliott Streets, in a historic sandstone Victorian mansion, Efendy is a modern Turkish restaurant, complete with a basement bar, run by Istanbul-born owner and chef Somer Sivrioglu. The popular restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, offering authentic Turkish delicacies, using local and sustainable produce, prepared meze style for sharing. Lounge and chat in the dining area, where the walls are covered in Turkish comic book posters, while you graze away on meze which includes baba ghanoush topped with pomegranate or gobsmackingly good, ordek borek, duck, barberries and cinnamon in thin crisp pastry.

Efendy located at 79 Elliott Street, Balmain. NSW Australia. The ambiance was delightful, set in a renovated 2-storey Victorian house, Efendy serves up delicious and hearty Turkish cuisine. With a cosy upper lounge area, and alfresco Seating on ground level! The menu has a wide variety of food, the food that we ordered was soooooo delicious, Such as Smoked Eggplants, Humus, Pastrami, Prawns, Fish Borek, Bomonti and off course Lavish bread, the presentation of the food was beautiful, But for me, the one that stood out was the Lamb Shoulder Tandir, cooked to perfection, it was to die for. Honestly I am speechless about this place... the food was absolutely AMAZING. From the staters to main to the dessert.
Overall nice atmosphere, and nice food relatively inexpensive. Service Wow! What a great service particularly Gizem our waitress, welcoming smile, warm and friendly attitude. The other staff were also very hospitable. They presented flawless service, friendly and professional. The attentiveness and enthusiasm of the service made an enjoyable, lunch
Great place for a real Turkish cuisine. Definitely must try if you are in the mood for, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean flavours. I love it that much, I will definitely come back very soooon next time I am in Sydney.

Thai Pothong

Reviewed By Julie M - Ryde, Australia

Took close friends here to farewell them back home to Canada, also my birthday. One of the best Thai restaurants I have been to. Alex our waiter was attentive and very friendly - along with all the staff. The cocktails were amazing and the food exceptional! And then there was the surprise birthday gift and dessert - with a happy birthday song by staff. Don't let the size of restaurant fool you - the service, food and the buzz the restaurant had was second to none. Then the $$$$ to spend at their gift store was amazing. We will certainly recommend. Thank you to all.

Cremeria De Luca

Reviewed By mbvajl - Sydney

Truly artisanal gelato, made with great care and attention to ingredients and flavour. Eating this gelato is like eating great chocolate or a fine wine. The gelato made by the other Italian style gelaterie in Sydney always tastes more sugary, and has less subtlety of flavour. Once you eat here a few times the difference becomes very apparent.

Cow and Moon Artisan Gelato

Reviewed By LincolnB1 - Glenmore Park, Australia

I love gelato!
I simply love the stuff… So much so that every second year or so that we head to Italy, we always go back to Cortona find our favourite gelato store on Via Nazionale... all that other little one just off the back of Piazza Nova in Rome to savour this most delicious of deserts…
For many years I convinced myself that a certain Darlinghurst gelato store (which has now turned into a chain operation) is the best gelato I had eaten outside of Italy… That was until I put the first spoonful of cow and moon gelato into my mouth.
The gelato at cow and moon is incredible. Quite simply the best gelato I have had in many years!!
This little place in Enmore packs the crowd - you certainly have to queue up and wait your turn… In the time that you are waiting you can select from 20 or 30 different varieties of the most beautiful looking gelato all named simply for exactly what they are.
I had the three gelato bowl I can't tell you how much it was, actually I don't care how much it was… All I know is this is the best gelato hands down!!
The gelato is rich and creamy and really milky… The flavours are amazing we tried six different flavours between the two of us and were in heaven!
If you love your gelato this is simply THE place to come.... other competitors could do well to come and taste proper good gelato should taste like! chains down mean quality is maintained... often it isn't... Burke street bakery can attest to that!
For me now to drive from Penrith to Enmore will be the only one I will take when I want great gelato!

sixpenny

Reviewed By billeclass - Sydney, Australia

If there was such a thing as minimalist dining, Sixpenny would be it. Everything is refined sophistication. No unnecessary sauces, smears, seeds, flowers or dusting. It is not every restaurant that a chef of the year serves you your order. But this is how it's done at Sixpenny. The person who cook will serve and explain the course to you. Be great if other restaurants could do that.
My only gripe is that the three desserts were all ice cream based. Surely a hot one could be thrown in? Also there is no hot expresso coffee available to warm you up after. Otherwise an enjoyable evening, excellent food and service
