Four for dinner Saturday night (the really cold one) we had, advisedly, booked although some late walk-ups got a table outside; maybe straight from Icebergs? I wouldn't try on spec, Brown Sugar is too good to allow yourself to be dissapointed. Had taken our own good wines (kicked off with a French bubble then some aged Australian Reds. Entree for... More

Renowned in Bondi for reliably wonderful quality food, innovative menu inclusions and good sized servings.....Brown Sugar's met the mark on every score. Back blocks of our fab beach full of really great eateries, and this one's right at the top. Don't change a thing!

A good choice of courses. We ate in a group of 20 people and I heard no complaints. The staff were attentive and prompt with their service.

This is a very friendly and unfussy restaurant that delivers good service and food. Reservation times are accurate with tables ready.The staff work hard and I have enjoyed several meals here. The fish pie is very good indeed. When a mistake over drinks occurred during our last visit, the waiter immediately acknowledged it and rectified it straight away with complimentary... More

Like his sister Lox, stock and barrel, this place never disappoints! always full, especially over the w/e for breakfast, you have to wait to get a seat if you haven't booked (dinner only, i think), but you'll be more than happy when you finally get your food! Last time, we've been there for dinner, tuesday night, and the place was... More

Having read a lot of terrific reviews on TA, I was excited about eating at Brown sugar and followed the advice by phoning ahead to make a booking. I left my name and number on their answering machine as requested and got a call a day later offering a choice of times. We turned up in good time and were... More

Great little restaurant. Although open for breakfast and lunch, dinner is when it is happening. Make a booking as it is very small and if the weather is dodgy, their outside space isn't usable. All up...a great spot - mostly locals

Got lucky to score a last minute cancellation end of the communal table on Saturday night. What a cool, fun restaurant. Happy crowd but could still hear your dining partner, food was delicious, service attentive and very warm and friendly. Couldn't fault it. Even got a park virtually outside - a minor miracle for Bondi any time but especially on... More
