I love nothing more than going for some dinner and a few cheeky drinks down in Bondi, it has the best atmosphere and is bustling with some of the prettiest people in Sydney.
We had originally decided to go to our fave Bondi Trattoria which not only has a killer view of the infamous Bondi Beach but I can also highly recommend the Whole Baby Snapper and the one dish that I will not share with anyone (not even the Queen) is their Chocolate Creme Brulee with Poached Cherries & Coconut Sorbet. It is to die for.
As we were walking down we went past Bondi Hardware. This use to be until late last year, the hardware shop of Bondi where you could literally buy anything. Sadly he went out of business which then made way for Bondi Hardware. Yes they kept the same name, same sign out the front but a stunning transformation inside.
Behind the horrible mdf walls was this stunning brick work screaming to be admired. The front of the restaurant has a gorgeous open window so you can sit, sip cocktails and people watch till your hearts content.
Running through to the back by the kitchen you have rustic tables with the odd name here and there etched in chalk for reservations and plump colourful cushions propping up the wall.
Near the back you can perch yourself next to the kitchen and watch the mouth watering dishes get whisked out to awaiting tables.
The food is heavenly. Thought up in mind of people sharing each dish rather than one per person it ranges from hearty salads, tapas style dishes, mezze plates, pizzas and my favourites the Sliders mini cheeseburgers and the mini NY hot dogs.
I however would also highly recommend the Goat curry.
|How amazing do the Elderflower Ice Pops sound.|
If I had known we were going to eat here I would have brought my own camera and taken photos. My camera phone just didn't do it justice (as seen in image above!)
However I'm planning on heading back this weekend for some brekkie so will snap away then and update you all.
I would highly recommend Bondi Hardware. If your wanting to go for dinner, even lunch I would say call ahead to reserve a table so not to disappoint as it's currently the seen place to be in Bondi and is always packed.
They are open seven days a week: Mon-Wed Thurs-Fri Sat Sun
5pm - 10pm Midday - 12am 9am - 12am 9am - 10pm
