Hurricane’s Grill Bondi Beach
Restaurant in Sydney
Grill & Steak Restaurant
No trip to Sydney is complete without a visit to the world famous Bondi Beach, and while you are there, you can discover Hurricane’s Grill.
Just off Campbell Parade, this Australian institution specializes in grilled meat of all varieties with signature marinades that have a South African flavour.
The restaurant is light and airy, with a large alfresco area to the front, a contemporary bar area and further inside eating area. The atmosphere when I visited with my family on a warm, spring Sunday afternoon is buzzy but not intrusive. The diners were relaxed as you would expect from a beach community, and there was a nice mix of sand covered surfers, young professionals and families dressed for Sunday lunch.
We gazed at other diners receiving sizzling platters of glossy meat with gorgeous barbecue aromas wafting past us. We ordered chicken wings to share as a starter. The marinade was full of flavor and the meat was very tender and juicy, falling off the bone. This was followed by a full rack of ribs for my husband, and burgers for the kids, whilst I opted for half a chicken with a spicy marinade. Nobody was disappointed, again the meat was succulent and tasty, and the meal fulfilled our expectations. The portions were large by European standards and I would recommend sharing some dishes. Part of the Hurricane’s experience is to roll your sleeves up and get sticky fingers.
The service was impeccable despite being fully booked and busy, and our waitress was attentive and knowledgeable. The prices were a little on the high side, but the quality of the meat was obvious and the ambience and service were faultless.
