I had the pleasure of a lovely, relaxing girls weekend away in Sydney this past weekend. My friend Amanda and I flew up Saturday morning, did a spot of shopping and then met our good friends Cate and Jane for lunch at Icebergs Dining Room & Bar, Bondi. Such a beautiful location and we had a fantastic table looking right out over the water. The menu was not quite as inspired as the location, but our meals were gorgeous none-the-less. The pod of seven dolphins frolicking in the water along the beach front made it even more special.
I do think I have been spoiled, however, by spending too much time in Melbourne where the food is not only beyond divine, but there is no attitude accompanying either the food or the service. Great to have been to Icebergs though, and to have such a special time catching up with special friends. Sadly, no celeb spotting! Even though we had our eyes peeled for someone swanky cruising in.
The next day, we headed back to the same area for lunch, after hitting the Bondi Markets. This time we tested out the other end of the beach, North Bondi Italian Food. It has the same owners as Icebergs, although I didn't actually realise this at the time. Much more relaxed, although much the same attitude, but a fantastic lunch with the girls once again.
