And with a banquet room for large groups. Has a dark and mysterious Andalusian front bar, large wine list and excellent European fine dining. Prices are at the high end but the quality and service is good value. A favourite.

I vistited Bathazar Bar and Restayrant on Saturday night recently. I enjoyed the place from the moment I sat down. Very European feel. Small inimate setting, cool music and interesting clientele. They have a small, but eclectic dinner menu, with lots of small plates, almost like that of a tapas bar. I reccommend selecting several dishes and sharing. The wine... More

My wife and I finally visited this quaint little restaurant & wine bar, having wanted to visit before thanks to friends recommendations. Well, fantastic food, great service and not being rushed at all. Very professional, and will recommend to friends & family. We will return !!

Visiting on recommendations a group celebrated a birthday. Quality of food and service was outstanding. Location not exceptional as no view offered. Pricing was over the odds at $40+ a main course and the bill reaching $100+ per person including wine. Not all had 3 courses. A special dining experience is the right reason to visit.

I was taken to lunch recently by some former work colleagues to celebrate Xmas . Their choice was , thankfully, Balthazar Bar and Restaurant. Although it is a restaurant that I visit rarely (I am unsure why, perhaps not front of mind) it is one of the best restaurants that I have visited in Australia. Food sublime, service exceptionally professional... More

This is an outstanding restaurant which delivers a fusion of flavours presented in an imaginative way - the plate of food almost looks too good to eat! Service was outstanding and the staff were very ready to chat both to provide advice and exhibit an interest in their customer. The wine list is very comprehensive. These combined with the ambience... More

Whilst not a frequent diner here I have been at least twice a year for the last few years and whilst the prices are high, the food is always excellent. The service too is pretty near perfect with none of the obsequious attitude that can be found in many high end places where the tip is the primary concern of... More

This is a very hard restaurant to rate. Ambience, style, class, and service are up with the best Australia can offer, and the food has flavours to die for, but does this justify the price? Other restaurants such as Prosers in Tassie or The Apothecary in Adelaide deliver better food for less money meaning better value of your dollar. But... More

Enjoyed a business lunch at Balthazar which confirmed again why I keep coming back to this place. We both had scallop starters with a rocket puree and herbs - a wonderful blend of visual appeal and flavour. I had duck for the main - what a feast. Spectacular plating up - too pretty to eat! And the eating was superb... More
