A pillar of Sydney's hospitality scene for two decades now, Maurice Terzini's beachfront Italian fine-diner and breezy bar Icebergs closed in May of this year to undergo refurbishments during the colder months. The iconic Bondi venue is now reopening exactly 20 years to the day that it first swung open its doors.

Icebergs was originally slated to reopen in late October; however, 2022's persistent extreme weather — particularly its unprecedented rainfall — has caused interruptions to the work being done on the venue. As a result, the reopening has been pushed back to December, with the first service now coinciding with the restaurant's 20th birthday on Wednesday, December 14.

Anyone who previously had a reservation for November or early December should have been contacted by the Icebergs team. "For anyone who has received a phone call or email from our reservations team, please understand this has deeply affected us all and we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this has caused. We are doing our very best to find an alternative location or a future date with us," a statement from Maurice Terzini and the Icebergs crew reads.

When the Bondi venue closed earlier this year, it was revealed Terzini and co had enlisted the help of Rome-based architect Lazzarini Pickering to put his spin on the upgraded venue. Pickering has worked on incredible buildings across the globe, including now-closed local hospitality spots Neild Avenue and Giuseppe Arnaldo & Sons, and Icebergs once-idealised Bali beach club.

The reopening night on December 14 is already booked out, but if you want to reserve a spot for dinner or drinks at Icebergs once it's back in business, you can head to the restaurant's website.

Icebergs Dining Room and Bar is located at 1 Notts Avenue, Bondi Beach. It will reopen on Wednesday, December 14.
