Icebergs Dining Room & Bar
-33.895276,151.274439

It's a bright Bondi afternoon. The sun is bouncing off the breakers below this most glamorous of beachside eateries, and the dining room is in full effect as savvy waiters ferry plates of oysters and salumi and tall glasses blushing with Campari to an appreciative dolled-up crowd. The Icebergs of now has evolved to incorporate the modern impulses of chef Monty Koludrovic (bone marrow making a winning appearance with lush braised octopus on cavatelli and seaweed teaming up with fresh fusilli, broccoli, chilli and anchovy) and a newer natural lean to the wine list while communing anew with the things that made it great in the first place. Namely simple, expensive proteins such as superb steaks and sparely plated seafood, handled with care in the kitchen and delivered with a wink and a smile by a floor team as strong as this space has seen in years. The riotous house take on the tiramisù makes a perfectly fitting finale.
