Situated in Bondi, Topikos offers delicious food in one of Sydney’s most sought-after locations. The restaurant’s name means ‘local’, and it truly embodies that vibe, fusing a friendly, warm ambience with the Bohemian spirit of Bondi.

The Topikos menu features contemporary Greek-style platters and gyros with an Australian twist. Dishes range from a meze list of pita, olives, taramasalata and more, to wood-fire-baked or charcoal-grilled seafood.

Ikaria Bondi

Another Bondi restaurant, Ikaria is named after a Greek island which derives its name from Icarus – the man in Greek mythology who fell into the sea after trying to fly to the sun with wax wings. People from Ikaria are said to live the longest, and the island itself is an idyllic oasis in the Aegean Sea.

Inspired by the island, the concept of Ikaria Bondi is simple – to create a bond between community and friends, through truly Mediterranean cuisine. Dishes include a variety of Meze foods, from grilled pita bread to a delicious burrata, and a number of mains and salads. You can also indulge in one of many signature cocktails, or a glass of your favourite wine.

M.I.M By 1821, CBD

This family-owned restaurant is built on a deep connection to Mykonos. The name is a giveaway – M.I.M, an acronym for Made in Mykonos – and the food says it all. The dishes at M.I.M combine fresh, locally sourced ingredients with traditional Grecian flavours, ranging from a vegan, gluten-free melitzanosalata with roast eggplant dip, heirloom tomato and red onion, to a beef scotch fillet with tarama butter and lemon.

The ethos at M.I.M by 1821 is based on family, culture and sharing, and this has translated into a warmly-lit, open dining space, designed to encompass Grecian culture with its large, communal tables and iconic art pieces. You can order A la Carte or from a set menu, and there are plenty of exciting drinks to choose from.
