Went on a voucher, but would definitely come back and happily pay full price. The service was excellent - friendly but not obtrusive. The Prosecco was so delicious and icy cold that we had to have a second glass. Shard entrée plate was delicious with beautiful warm bread, olives, pate and other yummy things. The shared seafood platter was what you hope for in a seafood platter but rarely get. Oysters!! Mussels, baby octopus, calamari, prawns and squid, and pan-fried, not battered. Fresh and hot. Good selection of desserts. The view was lovely. Unfortunately it was windy and freezing so we didn't brave the outdoor tables, but inside had a lovely, understated, funky kind of atmosphere. Highly recommended.

As we were dining using a voucher, it was a weekday and with only few other diners, a great view and good service, we really enjoyed our three course lunch. The food was very fresh and the portions perfect for sharing. The seafood platter provided an excellent range of seafood and the desserts options were varied and very substantial.

I was recently here for a birthday party. The venue was nice and it was great sitting on the balcony outside with friends. Because it was a function, the food had been pre-organised and paid for and we all handed over our credit cards to create accounts for our drinks. This did little to make things easier, the staff were clearly flustered and simple orders took a prolonged period of time to be delivered. Several of my friends had to inquire where their drinks were and when they did turn up the staff had again forgotten who had ordered what, I was even poked by a waiter who was unsure of a drinks order. When food arrived, the wait staff tried in vain to put the trays on the table despite the fact it was already cluttered with previous food and drinks that had not been removed.

We went here for lunch on a lovely sunny day, we sat on the terrace with views, albeit across a busy road, of Bondi beach. The food is fabulous and the service great.

Have gone to this restaurant twice while in Bondi. Have chosen different tapas each time and all excellent. We like the smaller plates/portions and ability to try a variety of different items. Paella, mussels, scallops - all excellent. Price is reasonable and service very good. Wait staff international and we enjoy talking to them, when they have time, about their country. Can find a number of restaurants with good views at higher prices on Bondi Beach but we like this one Definitely recommend!
