Service was occasionally a little clumsy, but was part of the great atmosphere of this "gastro/bistro". Don't go there for some posh/hype ambiance, here everything is about love of... More

You must head to this little restaurant and believe me you will thank me. They have 2 sittings a night & you must book or miss out. The restaurant itself isn't a ten but the service & food are to say Amazing & honesty some of the best food. A lot of unique dishes which is what I like. Things... More

Restaurant is small, and usually full, so booking required. Food is always excellent. Good selection to choose from.

Great consistent food. One of my favourites. The pancakes with fruit and yoghurt are delicious and could be shared between two. Huge serving. Get there early. No bookings and due to popularity you may have a little wait in the queue. Well worth it.

We checked trip advisor for a last minute meal in Bondi and were not disappointed. The food was so tasty, I can not wait to go back! The beef was cooked to perfection, the service was great. The only complaint is that its a little squishy between tables, but worth it.

This is one of the best places to eat in Bondi - and, yes, it is nowhere near the beach and doesn't have a view. It is tucked away in a side street. You go there for the food. The one drag is that it is very popular and operates on a formal 2 sittings policy. That's because of the... More

Have been meaning to go to Brown Sugar for years now. Finally my husband and I went there two weeks ago for dinner and we had a lovely time. On parking the street the restaurant is located in had a grungy vibe, yet on entry we loved the dark timbers and warm welcome. We were shown to a perfect corner... More

On a rainy Saturday morning this place was packed. We ordered the dill salmon eggs, black stone eggs and poached eggs with a couple of sides plus coffees and a drink. The meals were all special (the sourdough toast was a little crunchy!!). All were happy with their meals. My son loved the iced chocolate ... looked like homemade chocolate... More
