Not going to stun your culinary taste but offers good staple food in an attractive environment. The view makes up for it. We had the burgers which were alright but the plates were piled with chips. Could have been a bit more creative with some greensand? Not the cheapest.

After laying out at Bondi Beach, my sister and I needed a cool place for a drink with a view and couldn't find a better place than here! The servers were fun and polite. I loved the fact that we just order instead of waiting to be served..and our drinks were delivered in no time. It functions as a pub... More

The view over Bondi is great as is the champagne, but they have no control over that. What they do have control over, the food and service, was poor at best. We made a reservation and were shown to our table, after waiting 15 minutes we worked out that the waiters were only plate collectors with attitude. We ordered two... More

Really cannot recommend. Waited almost an hour for small but tasty portions. Add chicken to your salad - no. More bread with your burrata? No. Very inflexible chef, whom the waitstaff seemed to fear. My advice, walk on. There are wonderful places just down the road…

Hi Deee92, I'm so sorry to hear that you didnt enjoy your experience here at Hotel Ravesis. These issues have all been taken up with senior management. More bread should not have been a trouble at all, clearly this is an area that your server should have been trained better in- which we are rectifying. Variations such as adding chicken... More

Ok food but thats not why you come here Had anchov pizza , ribs , salad, chips and a few other share plates average took 15 mins to order at bar as staff are making endless cocktails so if you arrive order your drink and food straight away, But the reason you come here is look at the passing trade...

It is really nice and there is a great range with a relaxed bar down stairs and night club upstairs, the beverages are good and a good range. The food I found to be a bit average. And they seemed to have a lot of issues behind the bar. Also the people working behind the bar did not have a... More

We had our company Xmas party last week at Ravesi, we have to share 1 plate of food with 5-6 people. It's not tapas either. Not sure how to share a piece of fish with 5-6 people. Very average taste. The spaghetti looks and tastes like tin food. After 5-6 dishes, we were still totally hungry. The service was terrible... More

Being on a business trip to Australia, specifically Sydney, we weren't sure where to grab a bite to eat. We love the beach and headed to Bondi to check it out. Ravesi's had a casual look and feel to it and so we decided to have dinner there before heading back into Sydney Centre. The food was good. Not French... More

Staying in Bondi Beach

Neighbourhood Profile
Bondi Beach
An iconic Australian suburb, Bondi Beach is famous for its fantastic beaches and views. Once the domain of backpackers, hundreds of tourists from all over the world descend en masse to Bondi in December ready to enjoy the "Aussie summer". Bondi Beach boasts impressive ocean views all along the many restaurants and bars on Campbell Parade. Wake up early and take a dip in the surf before walking the scenic stretch from Bondi to Coogee Beach. Stroll through the Saturday organic markets in North Bondi or grab some fish and chips and relax in the grassy area opposite the beach. For more upscale cuisine, head down to Hall Street where a range of new eateries have recently opened. Just make sure to save enough energy for the buzzing nightlife Bondi Beach has to offer.
