Modern Australian | The Rocks, Sydney / New South Wales

We needed a place for dinner as we had a ghost tour we were doing in the rocks and after googling a few places for dinner I came across The Playfair Terrace and we were not disappointed. Everyone was really happy with their meals and the staff were very attentive. I would most definitely recommend and we will be back. It was also inexpensive, with wine, softdrinks and mains with some having entrees it was just over $200 for 8 people. More

Asian | Willoughby / Castlecrag, Lower North Shore

This place has a different feel, enthusiasm to it. You get the feeling that the staff is happy and near proud of working there. It a modern twist on Asian foods. My only negative thought is that there could have been more than 1 entree and main for vegetarians. Loved it and will go again. I have already recommended it to others More
