They’ll know who wrote this as we told them we were back at our favourite restaurant in Canada…..and another visit didn’t disappoint. It just reconfirmed our opinion! The service, the food and the vibe were all of the most excellent standard. We tried 3 appys.....Moules with frites, ginger beef and the seafood chowder. Massive portions, amazing taste but not the piece de la resistance.. that was dessert. The most divine sticky toffee pudding and an exquisite vanilla crème brûlée… simply out of this world! Well done, yet again, Chef Rich!More

It is simply the greatest restaurant in the world. Who needs phony French Michelin ratings when it comes down to food. Stomachs scoff at such pretentious 'ratings'. Are palates intrigued? Yes. Are stomachs sufficiently suffoncified? Yes. Are the staff attentive? Yes . All honour to...this cuddly little place among a chef of stars.More

A tiny unassuming restaurant in quiet North Sydney in an area you wouldn’t think it would be, and it was fantastic! Reservations are definitely required, as due to COVID they only have around 6 or 7 indoor tables. They take COVID precautions seriously, and good...on them for that! The staff are all extremely friendly and the chef spends just the right amount of time personally checking in on the tables to make sure everyone is enjoying their meals. The food quality is outstanding. Everything we had was delicious. The lobster wontons, the scallops and the sticky toffee pudding. Portion sizes are generous too, so you won’t leave hungry and you won’t leave feeling you didn’t get your money’s worth. It’s about a 25 minute drive from Sydney so if you’re looking for something a little nicer, definitely give this little restaurant a shot. We ate at a lot of good restaurants during our trip and this was probably the best one. Highly recommend!More

The Lobster Pound and Moore is an absolute gem of a dining experience. Chef Richard delivers an inspired menu, really showcasing the local bounty of the sea. I had the best Halibut of my life - cooked to perfection and paired with a curry that...made the dish sing. The wine list was solid, having a great mix of local and imported options for any budget. Service was friendly and attentive, contributing to a most welcoming atmosphere. The Chef’s passion for great food and warm hospitality is palpable, if you’ll let him bend your ear.More

Moore of a 4.5 really, (see what I did there?), had a major craving for f&c and Lobster Pound did not disappoint last night. Fish was fresh and sweet, perfectly cooked. Fries on point, dillish tartar sauce, ( all restaurants should make their own IMO...), lovely rough cut slaw, all delicious. Very friendly service, a great local restaurant. It’s a simple dish that I’ve eaten all over the place, but rarely are all the components so well combined. Ginger beef app was very good as well.More
