Sydney, New South Wales

Top10 Image
It's Bondi. It's Social. What's not to love? Located on the south end of Bondi Beach, this restaurant and bar has a killer view of the sand, the waves and the beautiful people who traverse them. Get a table on the balcony and order a round fruity cocktails or a refreshingly cold beer. The menu is Modern Australian reinvented into tasty tapas dishes. "Social" etiquette says you can hang around until well after the sun goes down.

PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS

Enter at ground level, take a short trip upstairs in the lift and you've arrived at Bondi Social, a breezy bar and restaurant that perfectly sums up the summery lifestyle of the nearby iconic beach all year round.

While dining tables inside are aplenty, the balcony's clearly where it's at. Wrapped in hip-height glass panels, the panoramic beach vista melds seamlessly with the first floor space, while passers by below heading out on the town offer an animated backdrop to meals. Sizeable tapas-inspired plates come with a modern Australian twist. Start with the twice-cooked lamb, shredded and mixed through al dente cous cous and sweet chopped dates, then topped with a romesco sauce of blended capsicum and almonds. Pair it with the citrusy haloumi salad, a combination of grilled slices of the gooey cheese plus diced green olives, orange segments and rocket leaves. Grilled fillet of salmon served atop a warm salad of capers, semi-dried tomatoes and earthy eggplant recalls both the seaside location and Mediterranean après-beach vibe.

The social side of things is further encouraged with a solid selection of meal and drinks specials, from the ‘$4 at 4pm' tapas plates deal earlier in the week to the very happy happy hour that runs for three hours straight daily. All the more reason to get down to Bondi and get a-minglin'.

We had a fabulous lunch yesterday! First of all - the food was amazing (we had the degustation menu). Every dish brought out (and there were many!) was just delicious. On top of that the staff was highly attentive and friendly. Combined with a great location this place is just a winner!
