Hg2 : The Hedonist


If you want to take a brag-worthy snap of yourself eating in Sydney to post on Facebook, this is the place. The glamorous Ms Icebergs has teased and wooed Sydney’s beautiful people for years with its megawatt ocean views and so-chic-it-hurts waitstaff clad in white tuxedos and outfits by Australian designer Kirrily Johnston. The floor-to-ceiling glass windows and balcony overlook Bondi Icebergs swimming pool and crashing waves – rest assured everyone from Cate Blanchett to Rupert Murdoch has sat here, swilling fine wine or boutique Italian beers and gazing appreciatively out to sea. The bar is a fine spot to share snacky plates and Italian beer as you swing in a hanging cane chair or banquette, but the modern light Mediterranean fare served in the restaurant is where culinary magic happens. In the seductive, dimly-lit dining room facing the ocean, service is exemplary; the waitstaff is able to rattle off an astonishing array of seasonal specials and details about each dish and materialise within a millisecond when your glass needs a top-up. The black-as-the-night squid ink risotto is a highlight, as is the tender 150-day grain-fed Angus/Hereford rib-eye steak and classic zesty sgroppino – made for sharing. Whatever you choose, nothing will disappoint.
