Review : Firefly Tapas and Wine Bar

Pier Seven, 17 Hickson Road
Walsh Bay, Sydney NSW 2000

Trading from 5pm Mondays
and noon till late Tues to Sat

Buggles and Squeak were venturing off to see 'Long Day's Journey into Night' (and can I say, what a very long journey it was!) on this cold winter's eve, normally our pre theatre dinner is had at Ventuno....tonight we try Firefly.

Review: Platform 7 Cafe - CLOSED

4 Burrows Avenue
(Opposite Sydenham Station)

Monday - Sunday 5.30am - 8.00pm

So, as anybody who has driven through Sydenham knows.... there isn't a great deal there (other than desperate inner west residents wanting new, funky cafes!) There has been the relatively recent opening of Rosa's Kitchen (which even though we've been again, still hasn't managed to hit the spot with us), but now Platform 7 has opened and given us a ray of hope.

Review: Ripples - Sydney Wharf

Wharf 9
56 Pirrama Road
(opposite Star City)

Saturday - Sunday 10.30am - 4pm
Monday - Sunday Noon - 3pm
Monday - Sunday 6pm - 9pm

There are some days that Buggles and Squeak just sit back and think...we love living in Sydney!  Today was one of them, as we sat at Ripples on Sydney Wharf.
Look at that view. The air was chilly, but the sun was warm and the water was glistening. It was a great day to be alive!  As you all know though, there is one thing that can make living better - and that is great food!

So we decide to see what Ripples on Sydney Wharf has to offer in the brunch stakes.  We booked a table, anticipating a large crowd on such a beautiful day, however when we got there we saw the reservation was unnecessary at 11am on a Saturday morning. The table we were shown to by the lovely waiter was perfect and our view was exactly as the picture shows - no zoom cameras here.
