“Nice bar/restaurant just up the road - head up the stairs to enjoy cocktails and a fun local vibe before or after dinner at one of the surrounding restaurants. ”

Bar
$$
“Hotel Ravesis - There are four ways to drink at Hotel Ravesis – post-swim, downstairs with a cold schooner or cider; late night on a packed dancefloor with a vodka lime and soda or bubbles; on the side balcony with a crisp rosé (which they've got on tap here) that'll match the facade's pink paint job; or on the front balcony, perhaps exploring more of the wine list or diving into the fruit-heavy cocktail menu. ”

“Bondi Hardware - Good tunes, mini hot dogs and a kick-arse Hardware Maria made with a splash of beetroot juice and a sesame-salt rim are reasons enough to visit this Bondi bar set up in the old Thrifty Link Hardware store.”

“Bills - Why Granger waited up till now to open in Bondi is a total mystery. The queue’s a mile long, but nobody seems to care – partly because it’s a scene in itself waiting for a table and everyone seems to know each other, and partly because the turnaround is unusually quick. It's even easier if you pop in for dinner and order miso salmon, a high-end schnitzel or something off the barbecue menu. ”

“Think of Neighbourhood, the Bondi bar offering excellent cocktails in fairly modest surrounds, as the late, great Bayswater Brasserie in board shorts. It’s quite a team knocking around in the 100 capacity space. Panama and the Corner House’s Josh Evans is behind the snacks menu and Simon McGoram (last seen at Gardel’s Bar) is on the cans.”

“China Diner offers a cross-pollination of Indonesian, Vietnamese, Thai and Chinese dishes. They're doing a menu that’s been designed with big groups in mind, which might explain the caveat at the bottom of the snacks section. And that is ‘a minimum order of two per item’. There are Vietnamese sandwiches (the smoked tofu with pickled carrot, cucumber and coriander is the winner here) and sticky, sweet Malaysian-style Marmite chicken wings. Puffy and addictive rice crackers flecked with seaweed go strangely well with a side of Cantonese-style pickled red cabbage.”

“SEFA is a local delight! With delicious share plate meals from the Levantine and a fabulous wine list, enjoy tasty slow-cooked lamb shoulder, shawama, baked cauliflower, falafels, olives, breads, octopus and other delicious treats. Now also open for breakfast on weekends. Only 2 minute walk from our front door.”

“D'orazio Pizza + Porchetta -There’s only one place you need to be right now, and that’s face-first in a focaccia con porchetta. The outrageous sandwich is a hot, fatty, rich and juicy pile of chopped-up roast pork straight from the rotisserie, laid with crisp cos lettuce leaves and grilled eggplant, all smooshed between pieces of pizza bread in a happy delicious mess. And that’s what happens when you put Popolo’s Orazio D’Elia in the kitchen and catch Maurice Terzini at full power.”

“A terrific Italian restaurant at the end of the street, 3 min walk ( walk up the hill about 30 metres then through the little park with the swings, the restaurant is at the end of that street).”

Italian Restaurant

“Bondi may now sport an A Tavola serving spaghetti by the sea, but the original Darlinghurst digs where chef/owner Eugenio Maiale makes his own pasta, is still going strong. The look of the place follows the same cues that made the original A Tavola such a hit. Big copper orbs light the room, marble communal tables double as a workbench for the chefs rolling out fresh pasta. It’s a like a living window display. Despite the new shiny fit-out, A Tavola remains a neighbourhood restaurant. ”

“There’s plenty of places to get a drink in Bondi, but when what’s in your glass is as important as the location you’re drinking it in, steer your crew towards the Anchor. ”

Thai Restaurant
$$
“When you walk into this Hall Street staple you can instantly smell fragrant Thai basil and hear the sounds of woks clanging. They do seriously big serves (one serve will satisfy two) of grilled meats, super rich curries and wok-fried favourites. You'll also find a whole page of the menu devoted to duck (try the boneless roasted 'Lucky' duck) and lamb (the massaman uses whole lamb shanks) alongside plenty of veggo dishes. ”

“Modern Central American Cuisine, cocktails & brunch in an industrial chic space right on Campbell Parade with a spectacular view of Bondi Beach and the ocean. The tacos, corn fritters, and cauliflower dishes are delicious! Great brunch spot, especially on Sundays. Fun on Saturdays to go with friends for cocktails. Dinner setting has great vibes and perfect for dates. ”
