Where to eat and drink in Bondi, Bondi Junction, and Randwick.
From boat shoes and beards to bikini bottoms and boards, Bondi and its nearby eastern beaches is trendy hipster meets health kick - in the best possible way.
Mexicana and tapas are hot fare from Bondi Junction down through the suburban streets leading onto the iconic Bondi Beach, where takeaway fish ‘n’ chips and award winning oysters share similar ground. Sweeping vistas of the beachfront come as standard. As do healthy bites along the promenade and the occasional celebrity tourist photo opp. You could say it’s our answer to Los Angeles’ Venice Beach – running David Hasslehoff included. (Baywatch soundtrack is not.)
Shuk, North Bondi
Part deli, cafe, bakery, coffee stop, and – come Friday and Saturday nights – a restaurant, Shuk is all things to everyone.
Nelson Road Tuck Shop, Bondi Junction
Minutes from Bondi Junction is Nelson Road Tuck Shop, a healthy canteen of house made breakfasts, lunches and take-home pickles, with some damn fine smoothies to kick-start your day.
Bat Country, Randwick
A cocktail bar and restaurant that plays homage to all things Hunter S. Thompson. And we mean all things.
Mr Moustache, Bondi
If you're having trouble separating the Tex from the Mex, these guys are here to set you straight. Also, they bring tequila.
Five whiskey pouring, music playing, mac-and-cheese making lads moved into the Neighbourhood. They brought dessert, so we let them stay.
Fat Rupert's, Bondi
Bondi’s Americana tapas bar, Fat Rupert’s is now open for lunch. That’s classic American sandwiches, packed with Fat Rupert’s killer smoked meats, from 11am. Wipe up that drool and head down to Bondi now.
