REVIEW

There's no getting around it: this is one of the most beautifully situated dining rooms in the world. Strangely enough, the management has opted not to simply trade on the glory of Bondi Beach spread before you, but instead to conjure a sultry, sassy vibe in an ageless, modern space, and staff it with professionals and a defining hint of attitude. The current take on Italian is broad enough to allow bay-leaf oil on the burrata, prawns and pangrattato in the spicy Amatriciana that sauces orecchiette, and finger lime with the signature grilled steaks; it's executed with enough care that it all hangs together with natural grace. It's the same story with wine, the traditional offerings now complemented by some vinous funk from sister venue The Dolphin Hotel. If the prices frighten you, try the bar for fine snacks with a side of sizzle and a double-helping of the view.
