Excellent views, excellent food and excellent service are not the only three things that sets Bel Mondo apart from other Sydney restaurants. This chic little place caters to the stylish, the trendy and the artistic among us with experiences to tempt all your senses
The a la carte menu is approachable and does not overwhelm you with endless options promising gourmet delicacies you may never have heard of. However it would be doing an injustice to call this food simple. The summer and winter menus intrigue the mind; winter promises hearty, warm and filling options of barramundi steaks, duck, pork and beef, with vegetarian options as well, and the summer menu is light and fresh while not leaving you feeling unsatisfied. Spring and Autumn menus vary according to seasonal variety.
The desserts are luscious and beautifully presented. None of them are too heavy or rich to give you that awful bloated feeling, and portions are generous without being frighteningly large. For those with a sweet tooth who cannot decide, there is a dessert tasting plate available on the menu also.
If you are looking for somewhere comfortable to have a cocktail with friends, Bel Mondo can accommodate you. The bar boasts a wide variety of local and imported wines and a scrumptious selection of cocktails to cater for every taste. There is also a very generous selection of spirits, liqueurs, fortifieds and dessert wines on offer. Tapas and breads are available at the bar, as well as a smaller selection of desserts.
Bel Mondo's newest attraction is Theatre Restaurant, kicking off on August 28th with a controversial rendition of Oscar Wilde's [I]The Importance of Being Ernest[/I] by Sydney-based The Dead Actors Society. The evening will include canapes and champagne on arrival, and a 2 course meal whilst you enjoy the show.
Various other events and functions are held at Bel Mondo, including MasterClass cooking lessons a la MasterChef. Bel Mondo also hosts corporate or other private events and is able to cater for up to 300 guests with a dance floor and DJ and the iconic catwalk-like stage for speeches or decorated as a unique centerpiece for your function. Function prices are based on time, include a choice of wine and beer, and are incredibly reasonable for the prime CBD location with views of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House.
Bel Mondo is contemporary, stylish and affordable city dining for your special occasion or if you want to make an impression. Take a look at their website for menu pricing and further details.
