No Frill....Solid Meal....Nothing More, Nothing Less

Over recent years, Bondi has become a hip place. I have tried out quite a number of restaurants there. I find them to be lacking of substance. Yes, they have got the look, where they have alfresco areas for good looking people to look and to be looked at. Food is being relegated to the "not... read more

I am a local now and I always walk past this restaurant. All I can smell when I go past is the burnt pizza. One day I decided to try it out. Again, it wasn't very pleasant dining there when the smell of burnt pizza was there. They really need to improve. I don't recommend going there.

We tried one of their pizzas as a take away. Very nice, thin crispy crust, juicy toppings. Main size pizza cost $20 and it was decent to share ( if you are not too hungry). I would come again and order pizza here.

Place was full for Monday night. Some groups with little kids, so if you're not fun of the little (noisy) ones, sit outside. Service was fast and friendly. Pizza is always good. Although, I prefer the Leichhardt version. Beer/wine is a bit prices - $8 each. Also note that place is 'cash only' All in only nice quick bite.

On a rare visit to bondi, on recommendation visited gelbison and what a great experience. Three of us had spaghetti and mussels, salmon penne and clam linguini and all were terrific. Great atmosphere and service. Try it.

My partner and I decided to go here on our date night but it was an absolute nightmare. We had reserved a table but it was only a couple of centimetres away from a large group table which was awkward. I'm a skinny person and I had my chair tucked right in but even so the tables were packed in... More

This place is all about the tasty, well priced food. The service can be a little hit and miss at times but it is a no frills restaurant serving great food. Keeps me coming back regularly. BYO as well.

We booked a table of 30 guests at Gelbisons. While the food wasnt too bad, the owner & staff were rude, unnatentive and unhelpful at the best of times. Summary: Rude staff, terrible communication, misleading pricing We were advised over the phone that there was minimum spend of $35.00 per head on food and drinks. Confirmed many times that the...

Disgusted with the level of customer service we received. After the main course was spilled all over my girlfriend's dress, they didn't even offer a single word of apology. The hot dish went through the dress and ended up scolding her stomach. Still no apology. They didn't even offer to get napkins to help clean, nothing. Not a single member... More

Gelbisons has been an institution in Bondi for many years, but recently its crown has slipped.A combination of' I dont give a damn" backpacker service ( dont get orders right, rude phone service, disorganisation) and a demise in quality, will not see me spend another cent.Its disappointing that the residents of Bondi have lost the quality and service of this...
