You have to order the fish pie! You won't be disappointed! I am salivating thinking about it! The restaurant is nice and cosy and not pretentious and has consistently been a great venue for years!

It has everything - a professional and friendly wait team, wonderful atmosphere and superb "comfort" food. Couldn't be described as fine dining but the cheese soufflé for entrée and fish pie for main were superb - have enjoyed the fish pies at Garfish for years but this was even better - perhaps it was the scoop of mashed potatoes that...

What an amazing gem of a restaurant! Incredible food, great service and sensational ambiance. If you're looking for great French cuisine then this is the place for you! It's an excellent choice to go with friends or for a romantic dinner and is a regular on our dining out list! The fish pie is a MUST! BYO allowed and reservations... More

We had brunch there and it was really crowded on a Sunday morning. Food was delicious. Good place to drop by if you are around Bondi beach!

A busy and buzzy spot for a great Sunday brunch with the locals instead of the touristy places on the beach. Good food, hearty dishes and friendly service. You may have to wait for a table but it'll be worth it.

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 olives while we... 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!
