Delicious seafood salads and platters. On the pricier side, but comes with a great view of yachts. (The restaurant, though situated at the yacht club, is open to the public)
Well fitted for a romantic dinner out.

Cute little subterranean dining room in Bari's old town, by the market. Scrumptious four course meal plus coffee at a very reasonable price. Heavy bent on seafood, fresh from local waters.
Really liked their riso, patate e cozze (risotto, potato and mussels) -- a signature Bari dish, and a grilled whole baby Octopus! Divine.
Lovely Afro-chic themed restaurant in the enormous Menlyn Park Shopping Centre in the eastern suburbs of Pretoria. The menu (as with many South African restaurants) is large and varied and the food top quality. The house speciality ostrich brie was delicious and all washed down with a good South African red. The only drawback is the suburban shopping centre location, however the food is definitely worth it.
If you're looking for an authentic South African meal enjoyed in the company of locals this is the place. Friday nights are busy with young urban types, visiting after the end of a gruelling work week.
Hout Bay Manor Hotel is home to
one of the best restaurants in all the Western Cape: Pure. The hotel itself
has been designed with the happy creative abandon of someone with plenty of
money and few inhibitions. The food is French, with
strong nods to the South African land and sea. It's not cheap, but though
Michelin are yet to hand out their fabled stars in this part of the world,
when they come calling Pure seems set for recognition.
Igbo dishes from the east: catfish, coconut rice, moi-moi, snails, drinks. Jeveniks is a favourite of mine when I have visitors - its good for having a taster, an introduction to Nigerian food. Nigerian menus are a maze - you select a starch, soup and meat. Pepper soup highly recommended.

Try Duende Restaurant in Newcastle Street - Fresh ingredients, great atmosphere, and very talented chef make this the best kept secret in the area.
The staff are great, the menu changes with the season, the coffee sets a high standard, and the food is fresh and consistently well prepared.
Try their cakes - they make them on-site (rare for Perth).
A new name, a new owner, a new chef and newly renovated is the setup for what was the 'Middle Brighton Baths'.
'The Baths' encompasses a very swish restaurant upstairs with superb views across the bay, a lounge deck and a separate cafe and bar downstairs.
We dined at the newly renovated upstairs restaurant and came away impressed with a new a la carte menu, a very interesting wine list of local and imported wines, beers and liquers topped with very good service! Overall a very nice evening out.
Without a doubt one of the most legendary balti houses in erm, Leamington Spa. Yes you'll proabably be sharing the room with a bunch of merry students from nearby Warwick University but if you're eating chicken jalfrezi at two in the morning, what do you expect? The food is designed to be eaten after a few pints but the atmosphere is brilliant - the staff are endlessly patient, the customers inevitably boisterous and all manner of mischief gets concoted while you munch. Just a really cool place if you're not ready to call it a night yet.

This gem of a restaurant is located in a 16th century fortification overlooking the charming lakeside town of Riva Del Garda, and it can be reached via a well lit footpath which gently climbs the Rocchetta mountain.
The Table d'hôte menu is well worth the walk.
I dined there in October 2009 and had an autumn-themed selection which started with a turnip soup with a drizzle of local olive oil, followed by a melt in your mouth morsel of polenta wrapped in a creamy sauce with cheeses and mushrooms.
The starters were followed by homemade egg and rosemary tagliatelle with a rabbit sauce, and by a mushroom risotto.
Then followed an array of main courses accompanied by polenta.
Among the various dishes, I particularly enjoyed the rabbit stew, a local sausage casserole and some tasty snails.
A local red Teroldego wine was served with the meal.
Dessert was a panna cotta with a red gooseberry coulis.
An excellent coffee and a selection of local grappas rounded off an unforgettable meal.
Next time you find yourself in the Lake Garda region, do not miss this!

Without a doubt the best post-pub food ever. There's no where else I'd rather go after a night of drinking. They serve huge tasty wraps filled with a choice of cheeses, meats, hummus, falafel, salads ... the list goes on! The prices are a little steeper than I'd usually spend on late night food but every penny is worth it. The portions are so generous; a medium wrap will satisfy all but the most hungry; and the fillings are delicious. I recommend a lamb and haloumi combination, toasted until it's a warm and melted and then topped off with hot chilli sauce. And the best thing is - I never get post-food guilt as it feels so much healthier than the other options. The temptation is even enough to make me forgo a taxi home so I get to feel virtuous about that too!
An Australian icon serving typically Aussie fast food, like its classic pie ‘n’ pea floaters, Harry’s Café de Wheels is a unique part of the city’s nightlife.
Musicians, streetwalkers, dancers, policemen and taxi drivers can be seen late at night devouring meat pies and hot dogs alongside judges, politicians and society's well-to-do.
Just a few wobbly steps downhill from the watering holes of Kings Cross, Harry’s is the place to get your post pub grub and to sample the personality of Sydney .
More than a pie cart, Harry’s is a unique piece of Sydney ’s history and the stuff of legend and myth.
This is a fantastic local Chinese restaurant in my hometown Cheadle. I'd like to recommend it as I've been there numerous times, with my boyfriend, family, friends and for a takeaway meal, and I just cannot fault it. It's great for family and kids, and have many special offers and events throughout the year. There are many vegetarian options available too.
With comfy sofas, friendly staff and a decadent line in chocolate cake, Kadas in Leeds is definitely a great choice for the late night reveller. Still going strong, after many years in the city, offering Middle Eastern fusion food and a relaxed vibe, Kadas enables the post pub/club go-ers to keep the party going in a less frenetic way. This little piece of Arabian heaven conveniently lives on Crown Street in the centre of the city and stays open until 6am on Friday and Saturday nights. Well worth checking out in the wee hours - there's nothing like a slice of their chocolate or carrot cake to sooth the soul before the trek home after a night out.

A block away from the hurley burley of Beale St. When you're sick of burgers and steaks or fried salad, this is the place. Start with the gumbo or chowder. As a main the boiled shrimp or snow crab legs, served with boiled new potatoes and corn on the cob. No grease in sight, all washed down with an American beer or endless soda. Not to be missed!

For a truly fantastic French Bistro experience in Melbourne you could not do better than "France-Soir" on Toorak Road. It has great atmosphere, divine food and a very comprehensive wine list. I ate there two of the three nights I were in Melbourne. The third one was a Saturday so I couldn't get a booking and had to have dinner elsewhere. Highly recommended!
The food was creatively and skillfully prepared without being unnecessarily fussy; the ingredients were intensely flavorful; the kitchen in Mr. Bauer's hands was clearly superbly trained in the classics while not being afraid to exercise its creative flair! The service for our table of six was warm and very polite without being intrusive. The small restaurant (~ 30 seats) with its simple but warm decor provided for a very cozy ambience. I also ate very well at RieGi and Osterreicher im MAK, but Restaurant Bauer stands out and easily joins its rank among other one Michelin-starred restaurants I have dined at elsewhere in Europe. A truly memorable experience!

The initial impact of walking into the restaurant and the whole atmosphere is amazing. Very traditional Indian is mixed really well with a contemporary twist. Then you see the menu which, although large, contains a plethora of unique individual dishes. The service was brilliantly helpful and knowledgable and always smiley and chatty. Then when the food came out it tasted divine, topped off with the chef personally coming out and asking about the meal. Absolutely fantastic night.
Veggie and Vegan Tea Rooms with creaking wooden floors on three levels. We had Welsh rarebit and apricot cheese salad ... delicious, complete with tea, an amazing choice all from the Imperial Teas of Lincoln shop just down the hill.
Wide range of clientele.

Jackies is a local restaurant that serves some traditional take out Newfoundland food. You are piled high with the best stick to your ribs food on the island. In fact it was so good that we have coined a phrase. It started when we didn't have such great food experiences and would just look at each other and go "shoulda gone to Jackies" we now say it to each other when ever we have a bad experience with anything ... sorta fits and usually it's done in unison ... "shoulda gone to Jackies"!
