Just, well, very good

I was taken here by a conference host a couple of years ago, and this time it was with my wife. We arrived early (on a Saturday, to be fair), and the place was already very busy. We were pleased to get a table, but at the back, by the toilets. That’s OK, can’t have everything. We had hardly... read more

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...

A reasonable place, good value for money. Pizza's are pretty good on a very extensive food menu. Limited wines listed on a blackboard. Service ok, but the usual transient Sydney backpackers used so not that attentive or informative.

Visited on one early evening with an Italian friend of mine. Ill start with the positives and say that I've heard they do good pizza's - which i unfortunately didn't get to try myself. The highlight was a good quality pasta with vongole, i believe i had it with linguine or spaghetti. It was lush in olive oil, garlic, parsley... More

We had dinner on 2 consecutive nights of our stay @ Bondi Beach. This place serves amazing vegetarian Italian food, especially the Pizzas. The salads, pasta & Tiramisu were superb too! Looking forward to our nxt trip to Bondi, which would definitely include dinner @ GELBISON!!

I have been going here for over 20 years and because it has been here so long speaks volumes. I love the Zuppa di Cozzi (mussels). I wish I had gone here last night instead of going to that pretentious North Bondi Fish where I had one of the worst dining experiences ever. Beware of the Bondi tourist traps like... More

Food was very good, large portion sizes and taste was excellent. I enjoyed a seafood spaghetti which was fresh and perfectly cooked. The service is quick and efficient; the restaurant also runs a takeaway service, so there may be people just standing around waiting for food in the restaurant. I'd definitely recommend for those looking for a lovely Italian meal.
