A true Sydneysider knows there is life outside Surry Hills!

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.

‘s Review¬†

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.

  1. I thoroughly recommend this restaurant. The tenderloin with pepper sauce is orgasmic and melts in your mouth. The steak is cooked to your wishes and is always consistent. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to cater to your needs. The ambience is lovely and whether your are their for a romantic date or just catching up with family it is a place to frequent. The proof is in the pudding so to speak.

    • I agree Jenny. I think I’m overdue for another Hurricanes session.
