I have been visiting Brown Sugar since it opened, and I continue to eat at this establishment every time I return to Australia. The food is amazing, the cocktails are cheeky (hit the spot), and the service is great. It is a lovely space, just steps from the beach. I love Brown Sugar!

We visited for dinner. Sat outside on a lovely warm night. Food is really well prepared and beautifully presented. Portions on steaks are just too large. Smallest scotch fillet is 350 grams and the rib eye was 550 grams. A wonderful meal and evening with good service even although the place was entirely full. Definitely recommend this place.

Came with a group of 6 - and we were looked after very well . Small but seasonal menu and a reasonable wine list means most choices are well tried and tested.

This restaurant is priced at the top end and does do fine dining which was well presented and fresh. I had one night on my own on this holiday so looked on trip advisor for a recommendation and this came top for the area so I went about half six in the evening when they were just setting up. Lots...

We ate at Brown Sugar on Thursday night. We were seated undercover outside, and it was raining, but we were provided with blankets and ample gas heating that made it a very cosy evening. We were seeking to have a well-priced, yet excellent dining experience without stuffiness or tourist-vibes. Brown Sugar did not disappoint. All dishes were generously portioned for... More

I went with my wife for a Sunday evening meal while friends looked after our children. It was lovely. Great food, nice service and a good atmosphere without being too loud. We shared a starter and a dessert and each had a main. Portions were generous - we couldn't finish everything. Great value for money as well.

Great food! Tired calamari and carpaccio as starters; fish, t-bone, filet as main courses. All very nice. The ones that had chocolate fondant for dessert were in heaven😊 Only improvement area was the acoustics in the room.

Small but busy restaurant, with a Fish pie that is "off the hook". Food service is great and food is excellent. Reservations recommended. Casual dress. Bon appetite!

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.
