    Messina Gelato: Best Gelato Hands Down

    by cjg1 Updated Dec 27, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Messina has been making gelato,sorbet and desserts since 2002 in their Darlinghurst store. The gelato and desserts here are very popular and have won many awards as favorite in the area. Their gelato is very rich and creamy; made the right way with natural ingredients. They have signature flavors that are avaialble every day along with some special daily flavors.

    Some of the flvors available are: Apple Pie,BountyChoc Mint, Milk Chocolate with Choc Peanut Fudge,Chocolate, Chocolate Chip, Coconut & Lychee, Coffee, Dulce De Leche, Gianduia Bianca (white choclate & hazelnut), Gianduia (chocolate & hazelnut), Hazelnut, Italian Nougat, Peanut Butter, Pear & Rhubarb, Pistachio, Poached figs in Marsala, Salted caramel and white chocolate, Tiramisu, Vanilla, White Chocolate, Pannacotta with Fig Jam and Amaretti Biscuit,
    Yoghurt, Yoghurt & Berry and Yoghurt & Caramel

    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

    by sue_stone Written May 19, 2007

    5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Top Thai Cafe: Nothing Special

    by cybergenic Updated Jun 1, 2005

    Thai food cooked for western mouths.
    Not very authentic
    Lacks flavours
    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 Yak and Yeti: Mouthwatering.......*Nepalese in Sydney*!

    by SierraSydney Written Nov 26, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

    by Intrepidduck Updated Jun 17, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    A quiet to retreat to This way for your Gelatti

  • 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!)
    Blue-eyed cod
    Fish Pie

    Both in Glebe-I highly reccomend the Mogul Curry house for a well priced Indian meal.
    Slightly dearer is the Mixing pot-Italian,don't forget dessert.
