This is a very nice restaurant for lunch with a wonderful view of the beach. The food was very good, and the staff was helpful and friendly. I especially enjoyed my chicken schnitzel which came with a nice salad and some fries.

Had dinner there on Tuesday night with friends and all our kids. Which is great as it's kid friendly as know really notices if they make a noise as it's a relaxed R.S.L. with a great view.
A little tip become a member for $25.00 and you will save I your meal / meals which arnt bad especially with club discount.
And with the daily members meal for $13.00 on Tuesday it was pizza or schnitzel. Kids meals get a free drink and ice cream a nice touch.
I had the double beef burger which was a nice size portion.
It's a great place to chill with ample food choice and drink.
Enjoy

Now if only all RSL’s were like this !!! Delightful service, good meals and the view ...... OMG the view.

Sure there was a TAB ( artfully hidden ) and a huge screen to watch sport if you want ..... but a balcony that sits on the top of Bondi beach.

The feel is relaxed and the meals what you would expect..... parmy, fish and chips , salt and pepper squid etc. But you don’t go here for the cuisine. A lovely place for a meal , a beer and to catch up with friends.

I am so disappointed & embarrassed that I suggested we go there for dinner. It seems that the Bistro owners believe that just because the Rathouse is in Bondi, this should be enough. What absolute arrogance!
We ordered 11 meals, kids & adults. The Parmigiana came out with one slice of ham slapped on the top. This wasn't ham off the bone, it was circular ham I would buy in a four pack from ALDI or Coles for my kids lunches. 4 packs for $5. To top it off there was a slice of what my family call "plastic cheese' slapped on top, classy.
The kids spaghetti bolognese had our friends' son in tears, half a tin of Heinz spaghetti thrown on the plate with yet another square of plastic cheese half melted on the top. It was fowl.
Fine dining at it's best - NOT.
The view might be good but so is the view at Coogee & anywhere else along the coast. Parking is ridiculously priced and the place is full of blow-ins, thinking they're cool.
Don't waste your time or money on cheap and nasty, low quality food. Drive up to Waverley Bowlo or over to Coogee Legion, food is good quality as are the people. You will find genuine locals.
Very disappointed

Fact check - the kids spaghetti is made from scratch, not from a tin as you imply. The cheese is shredded mozzarella & the ham is of good quality purchased from Andrews Meats who are known for supplying quality products. You encourage people to go to Coogee Legion, but you rated them one star as well. Why would someone rate a venue one star & then refer people to go there?
