This was without doubt my favourite Sydney dining experience. What Michelle can't do in a kitchen isn't worth knowing. The pork belly, absolutely out of this world - and every other dish was faultless. Nothing was left to chance. The wines were expertly matched. The ambience - like your own home but without the dishes and better than anything you could ever imagine trying to cook yourself. Couldn't recommend it more highly. Do yourself a favour, get nine friends together and book the place out. You won't be disappointed.

From the moment you walk in you feel welcome. Although you do not know the people you will be dining with everyone is on the same page and are open to meeting new people with a differently story to your own. I loved the fact that you get to mix with people you would not always have the opportunity to. The food is out of this world. Six courses with matching wines and all the food is organic. I tried flavours I have never had before such as the burnt butter and sage ice-cream or was forced to rethink how I expect food to taste or be presented. I would never have considered sangria sorbet to be the perfect cleanser between courses and their take on a beef pie was nothing like what you would expect. A slow cooked beef cheek was to die for. We left there feeling more than satisfied but also not bloated and uncomfortable as you do more often than not from other restaurants. I would recommend this closed door restaurant to everyone, the food is far superior than any mainstream restaurant in Manly and well worth every penny. You should try something like this at least once but for me I think I will be returning on many occasions.

I give you a 10/10.
Will definitely come back and tell all my friends how amazing the food was... Compliments to the chief. Wonderful company. It was a home setting which made it feel intimate and easy to meet new people.

I have just experienced an eclectic mix of the most phenomenally tantalising taste sensations. It was a consummate performance by both chef Michelle and host Shaun - the dining sensation built like a symphony to a perfect crescendo that left me so very content. A 20/10 from me for Forage.
