Bondi Icebergs to Open in Bali
A classic Bondi institution takes on a new horizon.
May 07, 2014
The Icebergs, long synonymous with its classic Bondi Beach views, will soon be able to treat diners to a new horizon. That's because the restaurant is set to open another branch — in Bali.
You'll find it at Echo Beach, Canggu, where it'll form part of the Sea Sentosa development. That's on Bali's southwest coast, 15 minutes from Seminyak, 15 minutes from the Greg Norman-designed Nirwana Golf and Country Club, and 45 minutes from the airport. Oh, and a five minute walk from no fewer than eight amazing surf breaks.
Sea Sentosa first suggested the idea to Icebergs owner Maurice Terzini about five years ago. Back then, the in-demand restaurateur decided against it, but now he feels that the time is more auspicious. "I've wanted to do something here for a long time," Terzini told Good Food, speaking from Bali. "I've been coming here since the early 1980s."
He also said that he'll be joining forces with "a partner-backer", but has yet to name who. However, he did mention that a favourite designer, Lazzarini Pickering, has been flown to Bali from Rome to begin whipping the space into shape.
Terzini's most recent project — Da Orazio Pizza + Porchetta — has been attracting an exceptionally healthy stream of customers since opening in Bondi's Boheme development in January.
