1 Notts Ave., Bondi Beach, 61/(0) 2-9365-9000. This appeared in the August/September 2013 issue.
If all this restaurant offered were its backdrop, looking over the Icebergs Swimming Club, the sweeping expanse of Bondi Beach and the dramatic, ever-changing ocean, this perennial hotspot would still be a must-visit. But luckily there are plenty of other good reasons to stop in, like the insanely good regional Italian cuisine, the killer cocktails and the preposterously good-looking crowd. Call ahead to book a table or just drop by for an aperitif at the bar.
