No hats, no umbrellas (dangerous), no music, no vibe. The Nth Bondi RSL is the perfect example of an unwillingness by certain segments of Australia to modernise and embrace culture. A place where innocuous rules stand way above customer satisfaction. This could be a world...class bar and restaurant, on the beach with front row views, but instead of comfort and music, the have beer taps and cheap plastic tables and seats. As you enter you will immediately become aware of being an outsider, signing in, a few rules, and begrudging welcome before an underwhelming food menu and a massive screen playing cricket (does anyone actually watch that “sport”?). It’s a shame these types of people and clubs have maintained a privileged advantage in Australian society, for they have truly added very little apart from beer + beer + beer + no hats.. in summary, and rules and no substance.More

Even after booking 3 days ahead we were put at a table in the back inside with no view . No apology just “well other people have booked too”. Frozen fish and frozen chips. Average . Won’t be back

Kieren was so welcoming to our party of ten as he enabled us to all sit together, with breathtaking views over Bondi Beach. The food was outstanding and served almost immediately. Allow time to check in for non visitors as you do get your temperature...checked before entry is allowed.More

We walked from Clovelly for a late lunch and the staff, service and atmosphere was great. The new Covid check in process was very efficient and we were seated even though we arrived 20 minutes early for our booking. The food quality was excellent and...very prompt - would thoroughly recommend the chicken wings! Good selection of beers on tap and the staff were fantastic.More

Arrived after walking from Watson's Bay. The check in procedure was easy with a very friendly lady at the reception counter. Great food - we had a good veggie pizza and Calamari - which was beautifully cooked. A good wine list.

If you have kids, then this place is definitely a miss. Personal requires kids to seat quiet and do not move from their seats. Last I’m here.

Awful service today from the guy in charge of the restaurant. Party of 2, he said go to the bar and I will call you up when there is a space.....every other group entered before us for 50 minutes. We left. Not going back any...time soon. If you go, hustle for a table.More

There is a separate business (a restaurant) under North Bondi RSL Club - I think that is what you are referring to - NOT NBRSL! If so can you please retract / re allocate your comments

Had just played golf so wanted a beer and pub grub. Got a great table on the terrace with awesome views and everything ticked the boxes. Most enjoyable end to a nice evening.

We joined recently and have been really impressed with the atmosphere, views, good size serves and reasonable prices, friendly staff and the overall club. The staff were amazingly helpful with my elderly parents. The wait staff prompt, friendly and helpful. The tables were cleared and...cleaned regularl. There were a few large groups for Chrissy functions and they had tasty looking platters and suitably segregated areas. We will make it a regular haunt. Just the usual bore trying to find parking at Bondi, or be prepared to pay the hefty parking meter prices.More

No. You can sign in as a guest with ID. But even to do this you normally have to live outside a 5km radius from the club.

Yes, but it is fairly casual. No hats to be worn inside (on the balcony is ok) & no singlets. Sandals / thongs are ok during the day
