This is a busy, noisy restaurant in a happening corner of Bondi. It was a chilly evening and our table was outside. The staff fortunately found an indoor table. The trade off was noise!
There are starters, tacos, mains and sides. The starters are generously sized and all tasty, the tacos are soft, small but we'll filled and the octopus and mushroom were tried. Again, tasty but messy. The large cloth napkins were appreciated! We tried the charred sweet potato (delicious) and whole fish (barramundi - ok).
The purple margaritas are delicious and a good accompaniment for the food.

I don't know if it was an especially busy night, but the staff were fairly laid back and not especially helpful (apart from the table change). Maybe we (the old folk) didn't fit their preferred demographic?

Overall, not especially good value. I know high noise levels are designed to get you to buy more alcohol - but there is a point when you just want to escape the noise and drink at home.

Between the amazing tacos, delicious margaritas and atmosphere Carbon Mexican Wood Fire is a must-go spot if you're in and around Bondi. I recommend their jalapeno Margaritas!
