Not as good as I hoped

I’d read the Herald article listing Ajo in the top 10 Italian restaurants in Sydney and as I live nearby I was very happy to make the booking. The room in the Welcome Hotel is very comfortable and the staff welcoming. And I enjoyed our meal but I left feeling underwhelmed. Maybe I couldn’t find the... read more

We visited the fairly new AJO fine dining Italian Restaurant at the Welcome hotel. Amazing high class service with genuine Italian wait staff. Good was just Devine and faultless. I had the Zucchini Flowers for entree while fiancé had the Pappardelle with Pigs tail ragu, both impressively larger size entrees and cooked perfectly. Mains I had the Pumpkin Culurgiones (like...

A group of us who dine out regularly came to the Welcome restaurant to try their Sunday lunch degustation menu. I have to so all in all it was disappointing. At best some dishes scampi, oysters and fish were average. The service was good however it was the food that let this place down. For $75 we should have asked... More

Having been a 4 or 5 times a year regular at the Welcome for many years I was surprised and initially slightly disappointed recently to find that the restaurant was under new management. I decided to dine there anyway and had a great meal with excellent service, The restaurant has been stylishly refurbished and the overall vibe is really good,... More

This hotel was one of our favourites and we loved our trips there. Since being taken over we were disappointed with the atmosphere and our experience. 5 of us ate there and that night 4 of us were violently ill. We contacted the hotel to let them know about this and they didn't have the decency to call us back... More

A local pub with a local feel. Interesting menu and beer garden has a good atmosphere. Good wine and beer choice

Had a mate down from Brisbane and he always seems to sniff out a good pub meal. The four of us had their advertised "Lazy Sunday Lunch" while we caught up. We had a couple of different "craft beers" before we sat down and then opted for the accompanying wines. The food was great with a mixed share entree to... More

This was a thriving pub last time we visited and now it seems to be 'on its last legs'. We called in about ten pm one night between C'mas and New Year and you'd find more people at the Rosary. In fact at one stage we were the only customers. Another couple of nights we passed it appeared to be... More

A group of friends and I visited recently for our annual get together. The new owners have done a remarkable job changing the former hotel to a great dining location and a wonderful bar selling mainly craft beers. The food was very good with the sardines and salmon outstanding. Will definitely return soon for dinner.

Looking for a great spot to mill away a lazy Sunday then get down to the Welcome. Delicious slow cooked lamb is one of my favourites and you can't go past those heavenly burgers. Hang back and then watch Menagerie where local artists strum and sing and locals with dogs and babies catch up and relax. Monday is really so... More
