Restaurants

Icebergs Dining Room and Bar

Restaurant

This elevated vantage of Bondi’s sloshing surf is one of Australia’s great views – one a less conscientious restaurateur might easily lean on. Not Maurice Terzini, who’s been pushing his resplendent Italian diner to greater and greater heights since 2002.

Carbon Mexican Wood Fire

Restaurant

This spot offers a hint of the flavours you might find on Mexico's Caribbean coast. It's all about boutique tequila and DIY tacos: you select all of the fillings you want and assemble the taco yourself. It's so simple – but so fun and practical. We wish it was more commonplace around town.

La Favela

Restaurant

This busy Brazilian eatery was born out of a broken heart, and has become a haven for expats looking for a slice of home. The all-you-can-eat buffet is a bonus.
