“WOW” What a great and exciting night out I had with my girlfriends. This place is fabulous! It serves up helpings as generous as that of a traditional italian festive gathering. Sensational freshly cooked seafood platters overflowing with sumptuous servings of king prawns, crab, balmain bugs, oysters, mussels, octopus, golden calamari and topped with whole baked fish.
Big John’s is not somewhere you go for a quiet romantic night out for two, but a great place to catch up with family, friends, co-workers and mates. It is a lively, entertaining place, where you get great quality meals cooked for you al-la-carte, with the freshest ingredients.
“Big John” himself has a love for quality fresh food, and the italian way of life. He has created a dining room that you would find at a friendly italian home, filled with delicious aromas, laughter and atmosphere which are enjoyed by all.
Big John’s Restaurant and adjoining Side Bar is fully licensed. The wine menu is extensive, including its best seller, Big John’s “Top Drop”.
You can also choose your favourite spirit, liquor or beer (so if you’re waiting for friends, or a drink before dinner, go in, sit back, relax, and
enjoy the ambiance of “The Side Bar”.)
Big John’s Pizza was first established in early 1985 as a small pizza take away shop. The shop was operated as a one man show by “Big John” himself, and was making what was then known as “the best pizza in Bondi”. The continuing high demand for these unique pizzas resulted in the introduction of a home delivery service. Due to its phenomenal success, a seven man team was formed led by Big John himself. The Big John’s Pizza Pty Ltd. Company was formed, and the idea of offering great food friendly service and a relaxed atmosphere led to the development of The Big John’s Seafood Restaurant at Sans Souci in 1989. With the restaurant proving a huge success, a third shop in Bondi was opened in 1997, offering al-la-carte menu.
The Sans Souci venue became such a popular spot in the south, the upstairs level was developed to increase seating capacity and was opened to the awaiting public in 1998. In 2004 “The Side Bar” was completed providing a meeting place to enjoy a pre-dinner drink, or drop in after a show and have a quiet rendezvous.
Today our continuous personal service and menu of the best italian food and pizza has made our three restaurants the talk of the town. Big John’s aims to expand with a Master License so it can offer good food and service to all of Sydney.
