Hurricane’s Grill Top Ryde City
If ever there was a restaurant that could convert a vegetarian to eat meat, hurricanes is that place! I would know, I used to be a vegetarian! Now unlike all the other patrons, I have never tasted the ribs (which are the best apparently) however I have my own little secret… the fillet of tenderloin, with peppercorn sauce… drool!
If you haven’t tried this fantastic creation, you must! The steak is marinated in heaven sauce and the steak is juicy and cooked to perfection. Now I live in Ryde, so walking back home is one of the most difficult things I can do because I can smell the deliciousness. It seduces me to go back and eat more and more! In fact on a Saturday night, you have to wait an hour to get a seat where other restaurants around the area are half full.
Truth be told, writing about this fantastic restaurant is difficult as the memories are enticing me to stop what I am doing and run down to what I would like to call, heaven’s dining room. Now if you are a vegetarian, I have tried their Mediterranean salad and it is scrumptious! I must warn you though, that the smell of steak and ribs may entice you to convert to becoming an omnivore.
I have turned to my husband for a review about the ribs at hurricanes. He has advised that despite never being able to finish a full rack of ribs at other restaurants, he is able to at hurricanes, and I quote, “because they taste bloody good”. So there you have it! The ribs taste so good, you can find access to a second stomach.

Overall: I am one foot out the door to run to Hurricane’s now since I have reminded myself of how awesome it tastes. I would have given it a 4 since it may be a bit expensive but, the taste won.
Price: A bit pricey, but so worth it. You wouldn’t go everyday unless you were rich and/or had no mortgage or bills to pay.
Taste: The tastemeter has broken from all the drooling. Taste’s fantastic.
Decor: Stylish, great mood, they have spent quite a bit of money on the decor for a nice ambient feel.
