The best eggs benedict of my entire life. I really like the unpretentiousness here, the quality service, the OUTSTANDING food. It’s open & light with a stunning view. I hadn’t been here for well over a decade since I left Bondi and it’s thanks to The Fork redemption that I hopped a few beaches over and returned. I plan to visit again very soon and try the lunch menu next. Thank you Bondi Tratt.
Thank you very much. We really aim to have a venue that is welcoming, professional, high quality and just a little old school without being posh. It's great when we get it right! We look forward to welcoming you again to the Tratt.

Food was amazing, cocktails were good. Unfortunately the beer was warm by the time it came out with main course, made the main course not as special. It still tasted great.
Ouch! Sorry about the warm beer, I'm wondering if the staff had re-stocked in the middle of service and then not checked properly to get you a cold one. Thanks for the heads up though, much appreciated, we'll watch that. Glad to hear you enjoyed everything else.

Good venue for families.with a view of Bondi Beach. Barramundi was well cooked. The Asian inspired angel hair pasta with prawns was ok. Kids' menu has a good selection with generous portions. Worth visiting for The chocolate tarte alone.

Excellent food, good ambiance but service quite slow.
Thanks for the feedback, sorry you thought the service was slow. There were a few tables booked for the date and time that you came, and it was right on peak time for dinner on a public holiday that was extremely busy. Unfortunately a kitchen will always be limited by space and equipment and I do remember that food was taking a little longer than we usually expect that night, but certainly not to unacceptable levels. We hope that the waiters were still attentive! Thanks again for your thoughts, it's much appreciated, and glad to hear you enjoyed the food.
