Pull up a seat in this Bondi courtyard garden for vegan eats and cocktails.
With its breezy, modern fitout and completely vegan offering, the newly launched Eden proves a fitting addition to Bondi's collection of culinary hot-spots. The work of Bondi locals Simon Hill and Tanya Smart, the 80 seater is heroing food and cocktails that are both healthy and animal product-free.
Across a lush, tropical-inspired restaurant space and fairy light-lit courtyard garden, Eden's dishing up a lively dinner menu courtesy of Head Chef Claudia Panto (of Ovolo's vegan restaurant Alibi). Without an animal product in sight, the offering features veggie-packed hero dishes, alongside vegan reworkings of some of your favourite snacks. Dinner time might see you matching an organic Aussie wine with some popcorn cauliflower bites ($9), vivid green sliders with pickled jalapeño ($18) and the battered faux fish tacos ($14).
You'll spy a mushroom-based take on the classic spag bol ($20), a range of colourful loaded bowls and plant-based pizzas like the Captain Jack, a spicy number topped with caramelised onion, barbecue-style pulled jackfruit and chilli mayo ($23). It caters well for allergies, too, with a stack of options that are free of nuts, gluten, onion and garlic.
You can wash it all down with a smoothie or pressed juice, though there's plenty more fun to be had with the signature cocktails list. All-vegan sips like the gin and rosemary Bondi Sour ($20), and the Cookies & Cream blend of Chivas, espresso, coconut cream and choc chip cookie crumble ($18) are sure to hit the spot after a long day at the beach.
