When visiting Sydney, we had the opportunity to visit Bondi Beach and oh what a beautiful beach. To make the most of the experience and opportunity, we selected Bondia Social to have lunch as it is the only location with a balcony overlooking that fantastic beach. Not only was the view superb, the food was likewise. We had the Ploughman... More

A group of 5 of us recently enjoyed breakfast on the balcony. A great location with a slightly different, but interesting menu. We all enjoyed our dishes. The one odd and annoying part of the restaurant was when one of us asked for side of poached eggs with his dish the waiter had to, somewhat sheepishly, say no. The kitchen... More

Ash, thanks for you time in reviewing your experience of Bondi Social. It is unfortunate that our breakfast menu wasn't suited to your table. In march 2013 we introduced a new concept with our breakfast menu. We wanted to get away from the traditional ideas of breakfast like bacon and eggs, and have creates different and unique breakfast menu which... More

We went to the cocktail party the week before and it was very enjoyable. The following week we decided to go back for a meal and invited 2 other couples. It was too cold to sit outside but inside was cold as well. We kept our heavy coats on throughout the night. We chose the $50 per head menu and... More

Despite the entrance, the location was very nice, with a beautiful view of the Bondi bay. The staff was friendly and attentive too. It was good even the attempt to do a tasting menu: you can order a series of tasting plates to share with the diners. Nice attempt but the result is not optimal. For 40$ per person you... More

My partner and I went for an impromptu dinner on a Thursday nite and it was great! The tapas style menu meant that we could try more dishes and they were all tasty and more-ish. The best lamb kofta I've ever tried (I'm not normally a fan) and luscious prawns. We had the dips - delish, and lavosh - homemade,... More

We enjoyed a lovely brunch on the balcony. The views over Bondi beach are good and the service was friendly. The food was decent and the Bloody Marys had a nice kick. Go for the drinks and the beach views.

The average rating I give this restaurant is just that - an average of the good and the bad. The good: The location is superb, with balconies overlooking Bondi Beach. It is on the first floor and the balconies offer a great place to have pre-dinner drinks. There were even fireworks over the beach. The food was excellent, appearing as... More

Hi Kathlyn, Thanks for your feedback regarding your experience of Bondi Social. I'm glad you enjoyed the food and service and sorry the toilets and loud music put a dampener on your experience. Unfortunately the second toilet had broken that day, and despite our best efforts to fix the issue it could not be completed before service so the decision... More

The view is awesome. We've been here for breakfast, lunch and for cocktails and sharing plates at different times and have always walked away happy. The mushrooms are amazing and keep me coming back. The degustations are good value for 4 or more people and take the decisions out of your day.

Ended up at Bondi Social after attempting to view the Sculptures by the Sea. The sign downstairs said happy hour & we went up and asked what time happy hour started. Never did anyone explain what was or wasn't included in Happy Hour - we just stupidly assumed drinks would be half price (the basic universal explaination of "Happy Hour"),... More

Hi Jason, Thanks for visiting Bondi Social over the weekend. Im sorry to hear that there was confusion on the happy hour. Our drinks included in the happy hour are clearly listed on the front of our drinks menus as there is no standard meaning to happy hour we find it best to list these to stop confusion, but i...
