      Next time your in town, try Rockpool Bar and Grill. Best steaks ive ever had and Ive had alot. They do cost $100+ for a good Wagyu but its worth it.

      Just rock up for the Wagu Burger at the bar. It's 80% of the experience for 10% of the price

      I agree with Paul on the Wagu burger at RP. For under $20, it is the best value burger out there especially at RP! I agree with Nick that RP steak is pretty good though, but when I want steak I prefer to go to no frills Squires Loft. Talking about steak, when I was in Paris last year, for some reason I really felt like steak one night and had it at my hotel (Westin). I was amazed at how good the steak was, and the seasoned butter the French use on their steak (similar to the butter on the fish pictured above) made it extra good. Are the French really known for their steak?

      Today I had lunch at Chateau Yering Historic house. Wasn't too bad, but if it's not for the fact that it is in a winery and the ambience etc, I wonder how it compares against city restaurants. Anyway, that led me to think of this thread, and to ask this question. What is the best Winery Restaurant out there? For me, it's Montalto, Red Hill estate and Chateau Yering, in Victoria obviously...

      Not sure about the rest of the frogs, but Guillaume Brahimi cooks a mean steak.

      haha i think it has more to to with the greeks who did own the lunchshop out the front of my work selling out to asians who have f*cking ruined everything i've eaten there for the last decade..

      Im with vwlatino only wogs can do it properly

      For the guys out west the Greeks that run the Take Away at Edensor Park Shops make an awesome burger with the lot!

      Another great tip is the Chinese Restaurant at Marconi Club

      I work around the corner from RP and have heard good things about the burger so have to try it!

      They are good.
      I reckon just as good, cheaper and easier to get into is upstairs at the the Mitre Tavern. Forgotten the name of the laneway it is in.

      plenty of good wineries in vic at the moment.....nice pinots from yarra valley and the mornington pen.
      kooyong estate are doing great things.
      also mr. riggs, and rockbare in s.a.

      Costa (sorry if already mentioned) but I can't go past VICTORIA YEEROS in Marrickville for Greek takeaway inc. music ambience. No it's not a 'foodie' suggestion - but then again I'm only a simple man

      thanks, but I was actually interested in the restaurant. As for the wine, I'm no expert, but some of my foodie friends actually rate the restaurant according to their wine list as well. Apparently Vue de Monde tops the list.

      There's a burger joint near your place in a small suburban shopping strip that makes really good burgers - but I'm not sure that's the one. Ask Wes, he knows it.

      French are known to be terrible at cooking their steaks. Usually way undercooked. Next time in sydney, go to Bistro Moncur. Ask Damien for a cafe de paris steak cooked medium.

      A title that is shared with Rockpool imo.

      Pier at Rosebay is hard to beat for genuine goodness.

      Everytime I come back to Sydney, I make sure I swing by Happy Chef for their rendition of Laksa with flat egg noodle. $9.50 goodness.
