Addy's Restaurant and Bar

Reviewed By taronga57 - Sydney Australia

Went there on Saturday 27th January with my husband and adult daughter for a nice drive to escape the ratrace of Sydney after a very satisfying visit last year. Shown to a table near the window (at the opposite end of the screaming children who were audibly noticeable with their presence in playing chasings). Waited some time to be shown a drink menu then ordered a bottle of Squealing Pig sav blanc out of about 3 others that were on offer. Some time later the waitress returned and as they were "waiting for a wine delivery" we could only have the Stony Peak sav blanc (from Victoria - which didn't float my boat so we passed on the wine). Finally got to order our mains (which were the same as we had on our previous visit). However, upon arrival, the meals were only warmish, definitely not hot and the servings were markedly smaller which caused my daughter and I to raise an eyebrow. On both sides of us sat dirty dishes from people that had left and when they were finally cleared away, the tables were not wiped over and puddles of water sat on both. No-one asked us if we were happy with the meal until we got up and went over to pay the bill. I explained to the young gentleman that the meal, servings (for the prices) and general service were very ordinary and we wouldn't be returning. This is definitely not fine dining, although some of the prices charged indicate this.

Coming from Sydney's high prices, the $25 2 course deal for lunch is amazing value. You have a pick of the menu & everything we selected was enjoyed immensely especially the fish. The serving sizes were generous. The service was very attentive & the wine prices very reasonable. We sat out on the balcony where there were no other diners but even inside the tables are spaced so that conversations can be heard. We will return here as we travel down to the South Coast quite a lot.

Salvatore's Cafe

Reviewed By jebskulker - Sydney, NSW

I went for a seafood pack with fish cocktails, calamari rings, prawns, and chips, and went for an extra seafood stick.
The calamari rings were tasty, the seafood stick was okay, and the fish cocktails weren't amazing but were crunchy, and probably need more tartare sauce than the tiny packet they give you. The chips were pretty boring, and even though I asked for chicken salt I didn't get any. The prawns were terrible, they were not fresh, and from the complete lack of flavour I could only assume they had been frozen and defrosted.
Nice view of the harbour though. Maybe do takeaway and sit near the water for a better experience.

Tandoori Junction

Reviewed By apatasaurus - Kiama, Australia

We have been eating here for years and keep coming back again and again for their amazing butter chicken. The naan bread is amazing too. We love eating in the restaurant and we have also had takeaway which is also excellent. Definitely the best butter chicken around and they will also make me a paneer dish in the butter chicken sauce - delicious!

Aharn Thai Restaurant

Reviewed By johnnthel - Shellharbour, Australia

Four if us had dinner here, the place looked different. We assume that this place has new owners. We missed the warm welcome we used to experience. Ordered drinks which took too long to arrive, the entrees we ordered were quite tasty but the mains were not as generous as they ueed to be, nor as flavoursome. More vegetables would have made the meals more acceptable.
These guys will need to improve if they want to stay in businesss as they have some pretty good competition in town. This was our preferred Thai but they have let us down.

Nardi's Italian Restaurant and Cocktail Bar

Reviewed By Jamie D

My wife ordered the risotto which was the best I have ever tasted & I got the parmigiana which was also great and tasted fresh and not like the processed stuff you may find elsewhere. Portion sizes were quite satisfying and value for money.

Reviewed By Courtney S

The food is always really yummy and the staff are pleasant. Sometimes the wait can be fairly long if you arrive on a busy night, as it seems there are not many kitchen staff. But if you are not in a rush then Garam Masala makes for a good night out.

Reviewed By Junk M - Greater Newcastle, Australia

We stayed at the Shellharbour Resort and as part of our package recieved a discount on the Chef's Selection - a three course meal. The entrees were a bit hit and miss but the mains were flavoursome and we could not fault them. We had the Veal Portobello and the Chicken Madagascar and both were significant sized servings and delicious. The Parfait and Crepes were also worthy. Great restaurant. I recommend dining there if you are visiting the area.

Pacino's Cafe

Pacino's Cafe is family owned and prides itself on quality cuisine and great Italian Vittoria Coffee. Open 7 days ... 7.00am-3.00pm

Reviewed By Rocksy75 - Wollongong, Australia

Haven't been to Pacinos for a while as the quality of food and service was slowly declining.
Went today based on a friends request and was pleasantly surprised. Not sure if it's changed hands recently but a few new faces with much improved service and food made it most enjoyable.
Will be back there again soon and may become my regular once again.
