Mad Pizza e Bar Bondi Beach


Alistair dined on Mon, 20th Feb 2017 (8)

Booking for 12 people celebrating Birthday - service little slow to get going but once drinks were finally ordered and delivered everything went very smoothly. Decided on banquet menu, Brilliant and superb idea. Plates of amazing entrees to share olives to die for, truffle chips, garlic pizza bread ( everyone raved yummm ) plus assorted cold cuts cheese and breadsticks. Then came the pizzas and pastas - again everyone loved the variety and freshness. Have one Gluten Free diner and they were looked after superbly with dishes especially for them. Then came dessert to share Overall night was success - not easy to please large group as everyone opinionated and individual tastes. Staff were brilliant friendly and efficient. Thank you guys great job !!! will be back !!!!

Bistro St Jacques


Alistair dined on Sat, 28th May 2016 (6)

Nice neighbourhood restaurant, entrees very ordinary which was a shame as it didn't start the night off well. Peppers with salted cod and the soup need some punch, potential but blandish. Mains - poached salmon really good and lamb nice but way pass MR Nice meal but not shouting from the roof. Very good wine list and great choice
