An absolute favourite place for casual friend get togethers and birthday dinners. Fabulous food made even better by the outstanding friendly, knowledgeable and attentive service- total professionals in a relaxing way. A gem of a place.
Waiters were so friendly and professional. I would definitely go back every now and then. Everything we've ordered was so delicious. So tasty and great portions.
Love Brown Sugar
Never disappoints !!
Reliably great food.
It is noisy but I return often when I want an especially good meal
Really busy and energetic restaurant a short walk from the Bondi Beach frontage. Excellent food at a reasonable price.
Whilst the food is very good this place gets let down by unacceptable service. It was so slow we only managed to get a main course in our 2 hour booking. We were told there want enough tone for desert but then waited 20 minutes for our bill to be collected. When we complained there wad not even an apology. We had friends from overseas and were honestly embarrassed.
Great food . Loved the olives and bread provided to start and brownies to finish ! Service was really good . Will be back
Get the Fish Pie. It is terrific.
Really excellent food, very good service. Everyone enjoyed their choice from the creative menu
Usually I love Brown sugar but I made a mistake going on Valentines Day. I did know there was a set menu but when I rang I told them I don’t eat meat but my husband does and was told its ok as there is fish for me and lamb for him but when we got there we were told that you share each dish. We paid $65 a head which is fine if we didn’t have to pay extra so that I could have fish. They still charged me the $65 each plus full price for the fish pie. Our chocolate fondant arrived which I usually love but it was burnt and the chocolate didn’t even flow out as it was so over cooked All in all we were very disappointed. Next time will know not to go there for Valentines Day
One of my favorite restaurants
We love having dinner here
Ambience and food is great
Love the fish pie and the chocolate brownies are delicious
Always a favourite of mine.
You never let me down Brown Sugar.
Our waiter wasn’t friendly at all and when asked if the fish pies were big enough to be shared with sides he said no, it’s a main dish, this wasn’t the case, we could have easily shared between 2 and ordered sides and then maybe had room for dessert. Disappointed with his service
Our waiter was so attentive that he noticed I was not overly enjoying the glass of rosé I had ordered which he promptly replaced with a delicious one. The food was beautifully present but even more importantly tasted delicious. A great dining experience- I will be back!
Fabulous, never disappoints . Food is amazing and service always good
Our food was delicious. The service was excellent with great ambience. As I have a hearing problem I particularly appreciate that the music was muted.
I never leave reviews but this was outstanding. The best ragu I’ve ever had and my family agreed the best lamb they’d tasted. We flew in from the U.K. as a family and went here for supper on a friend’s recommendation.
Amazing service and special care from Stephen
He definitely made the evening a great success with his knowledge and understanding of the menu and needs of his customers.
We were at brown sugar with oversea visitors and all of us will be back.
Food was absolutely delicious and the service perfect, warm and friendly.
I come to this restaurant every time I’m in Sydney. It’s delicious - every single thing they plate up is amazing.
We came for brunch and had a platter and it was very generous with loads of flavours. The staff were lovely and the food came out super quick considering it was a Sunday! Would definitely come back and keen to try their dinner menu.
While I've eaten at Brown Sugar multiple times (and liked the food every time), I thought that the chef was especially on top of his game this last visit (and the rest of our six person party agreed). We ordered the majority of the menu and shared, so had a chance to try pretty much everything. The Entrees were especially good, with the sardines, scallops, and the cauliflower leading the way. The Fish Pie was outstanding and the steak was excellent. And, although the wine list is very good, it was also great to have the option to BYO so that we could share some rare international gems with friends. I would highly recommend this neighborhood winner to anyone in the Bondi vicinity (which can be more miss than hit on the restaurant scene) and to anyone who might not have been in a while.
Go the Fish Pie. Excellent food to satisfy all tastes and desires. Not particularly cheap but on par with similar restaurants
Excellent Bondi Local spot. The food is exceptional with service to match. The fish pie has a reputation for a reason! And being tucked away off the main drag in Bondi makes this lovely place all the more charming.
The food was amazing and came out really quickly and will definitely be going again
Great night all round...excellent food, service and ambience
Nice small cozy restaurant with great food and great service.
Food was absolutely unbelievable.
Service was average though. Waited 25 minutes for any attention from wait staff, after finishing main course. We were planning on trying a dessert, but after the long wait for any attention, we just wanted to leave.
Food was good but service a little distracted and the music was belted up to a seriously loud level. Given that the acoustics are not great anyway, the addition of pumping music made it so we had to shout to be heard. But still fun overall.
Brown Sugar is a very nice restaurant in Bondi Beach. Welcoming staff make you feel at ease immediately. Modern décor in a rustic surrounding add to the ambience. The menu is diverse and tantalising. Food is delicious and serving size means you will not go hungry. Complemented by a very good wine selection. Overall on of the better a la carte restaurants in Bondi. Highly recommend a visit. Booking is advisable on weekends.
Waiter was so lovely and gave a great description of the food. Food was Devine well worth the price
Excellent food and service. Also it's BYO. Have always had a good experience here
Great all day breakfast, salads good size and interesting, chicken burger really good size piece chicken very tender but fried!
Fantastic local eatery great food and ambience. A must visit
Great breakfast, lunch or dinner. Tuna salad is amazing and so is eggplant salad. Highly recommend
Great food, amazing wine and super friendly staff. Only issue was old mate 10 beers who wanted the whole restaurant to hear his conversation. One of the waiters had the difficult experience of telling him she couldn't serve him any more alcohol. Would have been great if him and his party left earlier although so loud couldn't hear ourselves think, still didn't let it ruin the night and the food and staff were great.
excellent food all round and decent, friendly service. The goats cheese soufflé is to die for as is the fish pie. Highly recommend to anyone who enjoys good hearty seasonal food
Browns sugar was outstanding as always. The food is delicious, the wine was lovely and the staff is attentive. I have been coming here for years and it never disappoints. I highly recommend it.
A great little restaurant with delicious food, friendly service and good drinks selection. Well worth many visits.
Great restaurant - we can see why it has been around forever, is a true neighbourhood gem. Great food, great service - probably the only things that could be improved is - tables are very tight and its extremely noisy, but still worth a visit as everything else was very good
