Food is great and always inviting. Just don't ask for any variations (like an egg on your gravlax at breakfast) as the chef is a bit of a kitchen nazi. We've been for dinner and it was lovely. The place has had a recent and needed refurb. the music is cool and the view from the balcony is spectacular. Only... More

We had a few drinks before dinner on dusk and was very 'social', started to get a little to busy and noisy for us but we went for diner down the road. Worth a drink and look if you have time.

Stopped in for a quick bite after a long morning of walking around Bondi. Really good food, very friendly service and a great view of the beach. Would definitely come back.

Went for Dinner - whole place was very run down and dirty. Table top with cracked varnish full of the food that was left behind by the last people. Very small serves of very ordinary food, lots of attitude from the very rude which I am accustomed in to in Bondi yet this was exceptionally bad. Won't be conned again.

Went here for a drink on Saturday, group of 14, no reservations, no problems. Picked up a carafe of sangria for $15!!! Bargain! Was lovely to! Great atmosphere, good music, very reasonably priced drinks, and ridiculous views! Ocean is a stones throw away, and the balcony looks out over it! Would certainly go back!

The food is over priced, tiny portions and they could do with hiring some waitresses who understand the basics of table service. Terrible place, I definately wouldnt recommend it

Had breakfast on a warm Saturday morning on the outside balcony, overlooking the sparkling water at Bondi beach--location wise, hard to beat! The menu wasn't long, but enough to find something you like. Had to place your order at the counter, which is fine, and it came out quite quickly. The tropical juice was great, my gravlax & avocado generous... More

The Bondi Social carries so much potential but it falls short on delivering. The view certainly is the draw card here and frankly speaking the staff were polite and friendly so I'm surprised to read others having not so wonderful experiences. The food was creative with numerous appetizers being served all of which tasted fresh and quite reasonable for the... More

Staying in Bondi Beach

Neighbourhood Profile
Bondi Beach
An iconic Australian suburb, Bondi Beach is famous for its fantastic beaches and views. Once the domain of backpackers, hundreds of tourists from all over the world descend en masse to Bondi in December ready to enjoy the "Aussie summer". Bondi Beach boasts impressive ocean views all along the many restaurants and bars on Campbell Parade. Wake up early and take a dip in the surf before walking the scenic stretch from Bondi to Coogee Beach. Stroll through the Saturday organic markets in North Bondi or grab some fish and chips and relax in the grassy area opposite the beach. For more upscale cuisine, head down to Hall Street where a range of new eateries have recently opened. Just make sure to save enough energy for the buzzing nightlife Bondi Beach has to offer.
