About the restaurant
Enjoy the breathtaking waterfront views, sparkling starry night skies, and refreshing breezes of our outdoor balcony, or opt for indoor air-conditioned seating to beat the heat (which can be a must in North Queensland!).

Our restaurant's name, A Touch of Salt, is a play on our family name, Brine. In 2005, we started as a family business, and our family-style approach of offering genuine hospitality and meals designed for conversation has always been the heart of A Touch of Salt. Over the years, we have perfected our restaurant to become one of the best casual fine-dining restaurants in the North.

We take pride in being appreciated by the locals of Townsville as well as travellers from all over Australia.

Alberto's Lounge is an Italian venue in the back streets of Surry Hills. Operated by Swillhouse - who brought us iconic Sydney venues Restaurant Hubert, Frankie’s, Baxter Inn and Shady Pines - you’re in for a good time! Once found, the long hallway entrance opens up into a bar-restaurant space full of ambiance, wood and wine bottles. Dishes showcase the best of Italian-Australian, with plates like trippa alla Romana, gnocchi al cacio e pepe or bucatini all'Amatriciana all must tries. Local artist Allie Web features through the characterful room, above all, creating the fantastic mural covering the laneway wall outside; fully visible through large windows lining the dining room.

About the restaurant
Aromi. The name reveals our deep connection to Italy’s food culture, one based on aromatics (herbs), with each region emphasising different herbs to enrich their local dishes.

Our farm-to-table menu is responsive not just to seasonality, but to the ‘best-of-market’ offers from our producers, providores and growers. They arrive daily with their best cheeses, prime game, seafood and market produce.

From Aromi’s own house-made bread and pasta, to the wood-smoked fish and meats in the kitchen, the love of quality produce and heritage is embodied in every taste.

Our favourite pizza in Sydney. Always a great atmosphere, friendly staff and good music playing. The constantly changing starters keep things interesting on repeat visits (we've been probably 8 times now) and the pizza is second to none. If you're not ordering the clam pizza you're seriously missing out. Also the wine selection is concise but has a nice blend of Aussie and Italian options - my current favourite red was discovered here.

About the restaurant
We are a neighbourhood restaurant in Surry Hills with a great bar and a lovely team.
Our menu is dedicated to Australian produce, wine, beer & cocktails, opening every evening and for a lazy long lunch over the weekend.

We are located in a heritage townhouse just off Taylor Square at the axis of Paddington, Darlinghurst and Surry Hills with comfortable counter-top dining, a garden terrace, an intimate dining room, and a newly renovated private dining room.

We are thrilled to have one of Australia’s most experienced chefs, Mark Archer (previously Becassè, Tomislav, & Fix Wine Bar) heading up our kitchen. Together our goal is to champion the exceptional ingredients of this great continent through a changeable menu of sharing plates.

Our kitchen stays open throughout the day and late into every evening.

Always a good reliable brunch. Some minor changes to menu although the porridge is always a winner for us. Table was a bit sticky as not wiped down well enough and had to send some cutlery back as dirty. Glasses still wet from dishwasher. Would prefer them dry without water blotches. Staff friendly and food good though. Haven't been in a while. Just need to get back to attention to detail of tables etc. Surcharging now on Sundays too of 15%. Quite a whack even if you pay cash.

Brought my partner here for her birthday dinner and was left pleasantly surprised with the quality of food and how it was served. Commendable efforts on ensuring no food was wasted and that an ingredient could be used in such unique ways. Only drawback was that no outside cake was allowed for consumption and there was no special cake/cupcake/any sort of desserts served other than the stated menu despite it being a special occasion.

About the restaurant
Here at Sum Yung Guys we have not only designed the menu, but also the dinning room to highlight our spirit and passion for Asian cuisine and culture. The food is an expression of everything we have come to love a about the region, the cocktails have been developed to compliment. We have crafted the menu to promote a share style; this would suggest we we strongly encourage dinning with friends, family and beyond. The dinning room has been styled to capture the personalities of the 4 partners that share this dream; it has a warmth and energy that resembles the food we on the plate. Our dream is not only to have our food and beverages represent our passion for excellence, but also have our service exceed anyones expectations in a casual environment.

If you require further information please call the restaurant on (07) 5324 1391 or email us info@sumyungguys.com.au

About the restaurant
Our classic Italian restaurant is in Brisbanes central food district of Fortitude Valley. Since 2010 we have firmly established ourselves as a prime destination for authentic traditional Naples-inspired food with a remarkable atmosphere and service. Led by our experienced and acclaimed head chef and owner Tony Percuoco, every day of the week we serve up remarkable dishes. From the indulgence eight-course degustazione menu, though to a classic true Neapolitan pizza with an imported Italian beer, we are always focused on authentic Italian hospitality.

About the restaurant
Vue de monde is a testament to the belief that dining can be a wondrous and unforgettable experience. The ever-changing chef’s menu pays homage to classical fine dining in a modern context by exploring the beauty of native Australian ingredients. While in the past the menu looked to Europe for inspiration, Executive Chef Hugh Allen continues to celebrate the unparalleled quality of home-grown produce with thoughtfully considered dishes committed to seasonality and locality.

Vue de monde has been synonymous with Melbourne dining for almost 20 years, continuing to present an exciting and dynamic experience with a progression of flavours and sense of curiosity. The whimsical spirit at the heart of the Vue de monde menu has not been lost throughout the years, with the lighter-handed and more natural approach to cooking being no less infused with theatre.
