Friends who'd lived in Melbourne booked Bacash because of its great reputation. We were certainly not disappointed. The food was delicious, generous and well presented. The garfish fillets were enjoyed even by people who don't like 'fishy' fish and the leek and cheddar crumble was fantastic. The wine list kept my husband entertained for some time which is always a... More

perhaps because of the great reviews I had read, I was quite disappointed with the actual experience. the ambience was nothing special. the service was lackluster. it was slow, the specials were not announced, and there was absolutely zero charm, humour, or charisma to the service or explanations of questions. the entrees were wonderful -- especially the kingfish sashimi.

Dear Anky14, I was disappointed to read your review of Bacash Restaurant. We try very hard to make everyone's experience in our restaurant as good as it can be and occasionally things fall thru the cracks, what disappoints me most as an owner chef is when the Front Of House Team don't recognise when something is going amiss and correct...

What an amazing restaurant to be in! If you are a fish lover just go there you will not regret. The wine list is very rich. The service of the staffs is 3 hats. Make sure you book before you go.

Small but outstanding selection of fish, well prepared and presented. And the dessert was lovely. Not often you see (and taste) quinces on restaurant menus. Only bad thing: I had to share it with my partner who "didn't really feel like desert!"

Excellent service, comfortable ambience for catching up with friends - you can hear each other! Ask for the fish they recommend.

This part of the Domain Road in South Yarra has a variety of restaurants and cafés, and Bacash stands out. It has a very congenial atmosphere and is smartly turned out, as are the very welcoming staff. Their fish dishes are outstanding; my brother and I had garfish and it was properly cooked i.e. still moist, and very tasty. A... More

I've become a regular at Bacash during my stays in Melbourne. Simply because it beats all the waterfront restaurants in St.Kilda, by offering truly fresh seafood prepared with a tilt to creativity. Last time we were only a party of two, we ordered baby squid (a must) and raw tuna (also a must, maybe there's too many of them) followed... More

We always try and eat here when we are in Melbourne. This trip we went on three occasions, once as a party of four, then a party of three and finally a party of four again. My wife and I were planning to visit by ourselves but it is just too good not to share it with others. On each... More

We were a party of four and had a wonderful birthday dinner for our daughter at Bacash. The service was beyond reproach. Unfortunately, we did have gripes in that one party's steak was overcooked. However, on the positive side the flounder main course another party ordered was perfect, and the wines wines were very good. Overall, while we enjoyed ourselves,... More

A group of 18 spent a very enjoyable evening celebrating a special occasion at Bacash. Fiona was helpful and courteous in preparations and it was a shame to have not met her on the night to pass on the group's thanks. Every entree, main and dessert (except for one) was well received. That's 49 dishes out of 50 ... so... More
