Let me start by saying great food - KUDOS to the chef... but the un-required comment from the waiter left a bad taste. 1) ordered oysters, when finished waiter stated he preferred the 'tempura' and we should have ordered 2 of each (instead of just the Kilpatrick, red wine vinaigrette we ordered) - thank you, but we know what we...

My family party of 6 ate here this week to celebrate a birthday - and what an outstanding lunch it was. Fidama has been a stalwart in the inner west for many years and although it's owners, chefs and staff have changed, it has lost nothing of its commitment to quality and service. Many of the menu items are favorites... More

Attended on a Thursday night with a friend. It is reasonably priced for a great meal and fantastic service and quality. It is at the higher end of the scale as such. We shared entrees of calamari and the meatballs which was on the specials list. Wow, great flavours and the calamari so tender. For mains I went with the... More

I’m not usually someone to leave bad reviews but myself and my partner were both really disappointed with our dinner at Cafe Fidama. The waiter was extremely pushy and rude when talking to us and when taking our orders. We had booked for 6:30pm and were forced out the door by 7:30pm. The waiter made sure that we knew we... More

Went with friends for dinner wanting to use our entertainment book vouchers. What a let down when told we could not use both our vouchers at the one seating. We know this is not what is advertised in the book. Neither were there any signs advertising that they were not honoring the agreement with them. While the food was quite... More

Food was okay, that's all. Wine list is over priced. Waiter annoying. Would not honour our entertainment voucher and blamed 'management'. Pathetic
