We had a romantic meal here, and couldn't have had a better meal. Service was efficient and friendly, and staff had great knowledge of the dishes, their ingredients, and wines. We had the lamb and feta, and the fish pie which was fantastic. We were warned that there is a wait for the pie and so had... read more

One of the most delicious meals we have had in a while. Entrees, Mains and deserts we could not fault. Service was excellent. Took the parents out here on recommendations and reviewing on Tripadvisor and I can see why this places is so popular. Even midweek was full. You have to go with the others comments as you will not... More

We've been to this small bistro many times, and each single time is a food experience! There's a new chef since July 2014, and the food has never been this good! Innovative, fresh, super tasty, big portions, it's definitely what you are after when you want to eat out! The place is nice and cosy, even if when it's full... More

Came here for lunch on a Friday... the restaurant was not noisy at all, and we had our pick of tables. The staff were attentive and polite. I had the Moroccan Eggs and it was one of the best Shakshuka's I've ever had - full of interesting flavours!

If you are looking for a nice little restaurant with a beautiful vibe in Bondi, Brown Sugar is your address. The food is amazing. The staff is friendly. The atmosphere is romantic. Would you ask for more ? I would give this restaurant 10 out of 10. I have been there many times and never been disappointed.

My father and I ate here last night. After reading the reviews on here, we rang earlier in the evening to book a table. The restaurant was full to bursting, with people who hadn't booked waiting on the pavement for a table. We were fortunate enough to be sat outside (inside is very cramped and noisy), great atmosphere but our... More

A small restaurant where it's essential to make a reservation. Better to eat outside, especially when it's hot as it is inclined to get hot and stuffy. Good, well presented food at reasonable prices.

We visited this restaurant on a mid week evening on a friend's recommendation and needed to pre-book due to its popularity. It's a small spot with plenty of atmosphere and tightly packed tables. The menu was good and not too overwhelming. I opted for the squid ink pasta with crab. The portions were generous and delicious! The service was a... More
