We visited this particular location in the Star City Casino along with our friend Jackie. I wasn't in the mood for a full ice cream cone so I decided to have a few licks of my wife's chocolate Gelato cone. Wow, it was very rich and creamy. I haven't tasted anything this good since visiting Italy. I can really see why it is considered the best Gelato around.

The Boathouse on Blackwattle Bay: The Boathouse on Blackwattle Bay, in Glebe
The Boathouse is another of those fabulous Sydney restaurants by the water. It is located in a converted boathouse on Blackwattle Bay, with great views towards the city. The interior is all bare wood floors and large windows making the most of its excellent location.
It has been getting consistently good reviews for 10 years now and I finally made it there one evening with Alex and my Mother-in-law (MIL). We were given a fabulous table by the window, and ordered a glass of champagne so we could sit and sip and drink in the views.
Not surprisingly, the Boathouse specialises in seafood. It is the place to do some oyster tasting, as they usually have around a dozen different varieties on offer. You can order the oysters individually which allows for a taste test of several different types if you like. Their signature dish is the Snapper Pie, which everyone seemed to be ordering. It is wheeled out to your table on a trolley and served up for you, with sides of smoked tomato and mashed potato.
Favorite Dish: We started with an assortment of oysters to share. For main course I had the Roast Blue Eye Trevalla, Corn, Snow Pea Leaf & Prawn Butter, Alex had the Steamed John Dory with Yabbie Bourride, Potato & Saffron, and MIL did the honourable thing and had the Snapper Pie. We all had a mouthful and it was delicious - it was certainly the pick of the dishes that night.
Dessert time. For once I couldn't fit anything in. MIL had the Pedro Ximenez Ice Cream, Chocolate Mousse & Coffee Granita which she had no problem in polishing off, declaring it delicious. Alex had the Fig & Drambuie Parfait with Honey Bavarois, which was also enjoyable.
So, we had pretty good food, nice wine, a great table and mostly good service….except for one of the waiters who was very rude and unfortunately, for me anyway, put a bit of a dampener on the evening. Don't let that put you off though, surely he can't keep his job for long with an attitude like that.
The Roxbury: Glebe Restaurants
Fully renovated modern inner city pub.
Cold beer on tap and a fairly extensive menu with really cheap meals for all tastes.
Pool tables, live music ATM and bottle shop.
Very close to bus stops.
Favorite Dish: Porterhouse Steak served on mash with green peppercorn sauce.
Top Thai Cafe: Nothing Special
Thai food cooked for western mouths.
Not very authentic
Service is good
Restaurant is clean enough
Favorite Dish: Everything I tried was pretty average for Thai food cooked by Thai people.
To tell you the truth, I can probably cook the same dishes myself with more flavour.
The Nags Head Hotel: Glebe Restaurants
A choice of restaurant or bar style dining.
A la carte menu.
A good selection of local and imported beers, spirits and wines.
Close to public transport (Bus)
Favorite Dish: Nag burgur.
Cheap, tastie and filling.
Available in chicken or beef.
The Yak and Yeti: Mouthwatering.......*Nepalese in Sydney*!
This restaurant is located on Glebe Point Road in Glebe. It is a quiet and well priced restaurant with large pictures of the Himalayas hanging on the walls.
Here you can enjoy a typical home styled cooked Nepalese Food. Momo, sel roti, kwati, chhoila and many other mains like khasi and allo tama bori are always available.
Favorite Dish: You cannot leave without trying the Yeti Roll, the Momos and the Nepalese Bread/Sel Roti - which is in a shape of a large thin donut.
Cafe Badde Manors: Sydney: Coffee Culture Pt 1
My early Sydney cafe days, and there were many, started all here. It's a place I always come back to time and again on my wandering around Sydney. Could it be the faster rotation of the Earth's solid iron core which takes me always back to here or is it the fine coffee and delicious cakes. I think both! This is a most highly recommeded place to go to meet Sydney people who arn't in such a rush! Is that possible in Sydney? You make up your own choice if your one of those lucky buggers who can get there in the near future, when I can't!!!
Favorite Dish: Traditional Austro-Hungarian style cakes, kick-arse coffee and a great post-Glebe markets freak scene.
The BoatHouse on Blackwattle...
The BoatHouse on Blackwattle Bay
at dusk this location is unbeatable. As the sun doens over the city and the sky is tinged with orange and purple, enjoy a glass of champers and some oysters whilen you watch the lights come up on the Anzac Bridge.
An unusual view of Sydney, when night finally falls the effect is dramatic.
Great service and a touch of class and glamour - even Tom Cruise is a regular.
This is a great place for a big night and the service is impeccable.
Favorite Dish: The oysters (if only for the presentation - 11 different types!)
Darbar: South Indian Food
A fairly posh interior, good atmosphere but relaxed staff and patrons.
Fairly authentic Southern Indian cuisine.
Favorite Dish: Potatoe Dosa
Forest Lodge Hotel: Bistro food
Country style pub with a range of international dishes.

Open style grilled chicken breast served on garlic bread with salad a side serve of fries

Both in Glebe-I highly reccomend the Mogul Curry house for a well priced Indian meal.
