Intimate eats in the inner north

By Vonbare - 9 July 2009 31

Hi,

Wonder if anyone can recommend somewhere nice for dinner……I’m after a cosy restaurant in Civic/Braddon for a meal tonight.  Nothing too intimate, but somewhere really warm and friendly (not clean lines, modern-esque)– and nice place for two people to go to to sit, catch up, eat, drink wine and have the mood of the place wash over us. 

Any recommendations?

Thanks!

Wow. We used to go to Happy’s in, was it the late 60s?!

Does Happy’s still exist?

Yep, it sure does. Jason’s son is now running it and it’s still as good as ever.

A little late but +1 to Pulp Kitchen in Ainslie.

Otherwise a touch further afield: La Cantina is excellent and cosy in Narrabundah

Also tried an excellent wood-fied pizza place in Dickson the other night – can’t remember the name of it though.

+1 lanterne rooms (although it’s a little more exxie)

bit late, but cafe pronto is worth a look.

venture a smaller distance into the ‘burbs and go to ‘lanterne rooms’ at campbell shops – shall not be disappointed by either food or ambience… but i’m guessing you’re there, wherever that is, about now…

Ah ha! When I first read this article, I instantly thought Cafe Pronto, but then couldn’t remember if it was still open. So second the motion.

I agree whatsinaname – never, ever, ever would I return to Mezzalira. Which is such a shame because I think it looks nice. But the unbelievable (and unwarranted) RUDENESS of the man running it was so astounding that our entire table left and went a few doors down. I honestly didn’t know what to say at the time I was so shocked by their arrogance.

Cafe Pronto in Braddon is warm and friendly or Blu Ginger – the new Indian place opposite Cream – has great food and service.
