Gelato Bar Restaurant has received
rave reviews on Eatability, Urbanspoon and SBS Food:
“Walked in because of the cakes in the window, but was tempted by the menu so had a soup first. The matso ball soup really was the best I have ever had and the apple strudel tasted as good as it looked. Service was pleasant and prices were reasonable. Will definitely come back!”

“Nice to see somewhere in Bondi that is real and not trend
driven. Gelato Bar hasn't changed one bit since I first started going there in
the mid 90s - still great cakes, pancakes and old fashioned eastern european
- Maarie, Urbanspoon
“Without hesitation, pundits claim
that this classic Bondi beauty is the place to go if you have a hankering for
strudel. This deliciously flaky and delicate pastry comes in a variety of
flavours such as apple and cinnamon, sour cherry, walnut, and the rather sinful
hazelnut and chocolate.”
