Icebergs Dining Room and Bar is situated in one of the most beautiful and awe-
inspiring locations in the world - Bondi Beach. The panoramic views, ultra cool
interiors and a menu based around a modern Mediterranean theme with a strong
emphasis on seafood have kept this restaurant on the hot list since it‟s opening in
December 2002.

North Bondi Italian Food (NEW)
118-120 Ramsgate Av
North Bondi 2026 NSW

The simple name really says it all - Italian fare served above an iconic stretch of
coast. North Bondi Italian Food doesn't try to be anything more than that, but with
Maurice Terzini as one of the owners and the uber-sophisticated Icebergs Dining
Room as its sibling, this new eatery can't help but create a stir. The former
Moorish site has had a makeover, shifting the long bar over to the side of the
room and filling the space with bright yellow chairs and simple unclothed tables,
while enormous pleated lampshades hang above diners like '50s rock'n'roll skirts.
Features such as recessed trays built into tables to store the cutlery reinforce the
family-friendly, beachy attitude.

Chef Robert Marchetti's menu is similarly simple and laidback. Share-style
plates might display a rustic selection of Italian meats or cheeses, baccala
(salted cod) balls or calamari. The intention is to create an alternative to the
increasingly upmarket restaurants of Bondi, however this attempt at
casualness is unlikely to stop Bondi's sparkling social set from sweeping in
with expectations as high as their stiletto heels. Though it may be casual, with
a pedigree like this, diners are not likely to be disappointed.

SoBo (NEW)
70a Campbell Pde
Bondi Beach 2026 NSW
Phone: (02) 9300 8898

SoBo (the name twisting the South Bondi location with a bit of New York style)
has stepped up to the plate. Designer Paul Kelly has created a restaurant that
would be right at home in Manhattan - if only that iconic city had a beach like
Bondi's. The resulting space features deep banquettes, Parisian-style chairs and
striking burnt orange lights, combining city sophistication with cheeky beach-chic
style.

In the kitchen, SoBo boasts European import Xavier Mouche, whose Australian
experience includes time at Bathers' Pavilion and Bennelong. Mouche's menu
combines classic techniques and fresh modern tastes to create dishes such as
an earthy quail and mushroom pithivier with grape jus, or escalope of salmon
with a slightly acidic Champagne and sorrel sauce. To match this feast of
European cuisine, there is a list of innovative cocktails and an extensive range of
international boutique wines.


Blue Orange
49 Hall Street, Bondi Beach
Tel: 9300 9885
Contact: Shane

Any cafe which uses the preferred sydneycafes website colours of blue and
orange is off to a good start in our books - it's like, yep, they got the Sydney
pantone there - orange signifying the sand and sun, blue the water and sky. But,
who cares, we hear you cry. And you're right - far better we talk about the food.
Far, far better, in fact, as the food is exquisite. Outrageously unknown chef
Shane Lurie has owned Blue Orange Cafe (with business partner Tasia
Doukakis) for only five months, but he's gaining fans fast. His life so far, cheffing
in award-winning restaurants in Italy, Austria, Germany, Switzerland,
Czechoslovakia, the UK, Ireland, and even Israel and Egypt has imbued him with
a worldly instinct for eclectic fusions of flavours which, while subtle in
themselves, gradually seduce the senses with sublime force. The Crispy Skin
Salmon, for example, relaxes ona prawn & saffron risotto touched with baby
fennel, sauce vierge and French salsa (which itself is an immaculate blend of
coriander seeds, fresh basil, white balsamic olive oil and salt & pepper). It's
probably the best risotto we've ever tasted! And the softest smoothest salmon-
flesh around shows that

Soak up the beach activity while having lunch at Sean's Panaroma
A quirky beach cafe, half up-market restaurant - Sean's epitomizes
Bondi's studied cool. People certainly love spending their weekends here soaking

winning combination, especially when teamed with a body-surfer view of Bondi
beach. Sean Moran's passion for minimal chef intervention and prime seasonal

offshoot in Bondi off we go.Fennell and chilli salmon, from the specials board, is
cooked to soft perfection and arrives perched (fish pun intended) on a mound of
salad containing the seemingly ubiquitous kumara, a scattering of mungbeans
and the occasional slice of ginger to add a frisson to the proceedings. The salad
option - it also comes with chips or tempura vegetables - includes a sliver of corn
on the cob and a little plastic container of home-made pesto, which compliments
everything beautifully.

If Danny Russo's modern Italian food doesn't make you think you've dined and
gone to heaven, the airy white interior just might. The painted art deco walls are
as milky as they are curvy, with the motif furthering its classic style with marble
floors, vintage wood panels, dark chocolate banquettes and brass trim. Russo
(ex-Aqua Luna and L'Unico) says the space reminds him of the rich architecture
of 1940s Italy, even as his food is firmly footed in the present - the chef likens it
to a combination of the full flavours of the south with the excellent presentation of
the north. There's also a diligent focus on sticking to classic ingredients while
cooking them in unconventional ways. Italofiles will love all the native touches,
from the imported tableware and accoutrements to the use of Italian oils, Sicilian
sea salt and the extensive Italian wine list. The menu is both simple and
stimulating. Case in point: the signature squid ink tortellini, which uses ink so
fresh it colours the made-to-order pasta a deep midnight black, then gives way to
a subtly textured crab and mascarpone filling and a slow-cooked tomato sauce.
For those in the mood for a casual affair, cross the hall to the cocktail bar,
consider the generous grappa selection, and grab a plate of bite-sized arancini or
any of the other well-crafted nibblies.
