When you think Bondi, you think of summers by the beach having drinks with your friends. Well what if I told you there is a place where you can enjoy great views and food and drinks, over watching your favourite sport? Step in North Bondi RSL. With stunning views of Bondi Beach, an extensive menu of classic dishes and all the beer and wine and spirits you can handle, it is your go to place to kick back and relax on the weekend. I discovered this gem the other week and will share our experience in this post.
We walked into a space huge glass windows letting the natural sunlight and views of Bondi Beach seep through the spacious interior with large flatscreens showing the latest NRL game that was on that afternoon. We ordered a vodka lemonade and raspberry and sat back to enjoy the game.
To start off with, we ordered two burgers, the first was the their beef burger, double beef with cheese, onion rings, guacamole and a side of chips. I loved how tender and juicy the patties were, and the guacamole was nicely mixed and added a creaminess to the dish, while the onion rings added a great crunch.
The second burger we ordered was one of their specials, the fried chicken burger with tomato, lettuce, spicy mayo and cheese. I loved how crispy the chicken was on the outside, with the inside being full of flavour and the spicy mayo adding a great kick!
Our third dish was their lamb ragout ravioli with goats cheese. The slow roasted lamb meat was tender and delicious, and I really enjoyed the ravioli, with the goats cheese adding a unique flavour to the dish.
Our fourth dish was the chorizo, ham, mushroom, onion, olive and roast capsicum pizza. I loved how the pizza was generous and full of toppings, with all the ingredients going together nicely, though the base could have been a tad more crispy.
For dessert, we ordered their rocky road and mars bar cheesecakes. I loved all the nuts and marshmallows in the rocky road cheesecake as well as the caramel and mars bar chunks in the mars bar cheesecake. Both were served with vanilla ice cream, which was nice and refreshing.
Overall, North Bondi RSL is a great place to hang out for anyone who loves the beach and wants to enjoy great food while watching their favourite team win on the weekend. It has a lovely casual atmosphere and fast service, and with panoramic views of Bondi Beach, it is the perfect place to relax and unwind on a weekend!
