Outstanding!

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... read 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

Brown Sugar is a great restaurant that delivers on all fronts. Great Service, fresh produce, creative gastronomy and a simple yet memorable menu ensures an experience that leaves you craving for more. I would highly recommend the pancakes. Rich in flavor, fluffy and not too heavy and the bacon cooked perfectly. Great place for meeting friends on a Saturday or... More

Every dish we ordered was really good. The chicken burger was superb, crab pasta and fish pie also amazing. The little restaurant also had good service. A definite must in Bondi. Definitely one of the better food places in Sydney.

We have been there twice for dinner or just a cocktail and an entree. Loved it twice. The scallop are to die for and the fish pie will never disappoint. Beware the pie is fairly generous.

Came to visit our son in Bondi. He took us for our first meal in Bondi and we came to Brown Sugar. We had chicken liver pate (shared) and grilled Haloumi - again to share. Plenty for four to share. The pate was the best I have EVER tasted. Absolutely divine. Smooth and delicious. Waitresses were a joy and very... More

I ordered the mullaway fillet and my partner the ribeye fillet. Both 10/10. Seductive little place with an upbeat vibe. Finding a park was frustrating but worth it. Friendly beautiful staff. The only thing that was off putting is when the waiter asked for a 25% tip! Definately will revisit next time Im in town.

My wife and I stumbled on brown sugar many years ago, before it became the place to be seen. We were such frequent visitors, they knew her by name when she rang to make a reservation. Fast forward a few years and we hadn't been there for 12 months as the small space became so crammed with little Bondi things.... More

Loved the look of this place and was lured in by the decor and warm atmosphere! On arrival owner/ waiter was lovely and helped us to understand how to get the best out of the menu. He was helpful and attentive with out being patronising, which is refreshing! Food was superb 3 of us ordered variety of meat and fish... More
