We have been to this restaurant in the Eastland Shopping Centre a few times in the past, particularly before or after a movie. It can be noisy and reminds us more of a cafeteria style with its open plan and dated décor. We found this time that the food was OK but have been disappointed on previous occasions. This time,...

Having not been to Balsamic for a while, we were surprised with the depth of change to the menu and the relative over increase in prices. Still a great place to eat and desserts are well sized.

Went for a family dinner, ordered drinks they forgot one. Ordered burger husband asked for no cheese, burger served with cheese. They took the burger back and served a second meal. This time no cheese but the burger was raw inside. Waitress didn't seem to care too much. They offered free drinks, didn't need any drinks as we have already... More

Not tempted to go back, been quite a few times over the years... Just too noisy and the food is distinctly average... Not sure if it has changed hands or not...

Visited Saturday night for birthday celebration with family. Everyone enjoyed their meal with something available for everyone on the menu. I personally enjoy the duck rolls for starter (portion is big enough to share but I don't !!). Staff are friendly. Bar area is divided from the restaurant with happy hour drink specials. Been here twice recently and can definitely... More

I used to love going to Balsamic for their fine food and good customer service, however in recent times they have dropped a lot of their menu delights, such as the beef hamburger, and now have a limited venue. The quality of the food is fair but the commitment from the management has lost me a lot. A shame because... More

I ordered the Thai Beef Salad. Sounded amazing! Didn't taste so great. Salad was pretty good but the beef wrecked the dish. It was over cooked (tough). Waste of money!

We are really sorry to hear that your beef salad was over cooked. Its a great dish when cooked well & certainly suffers if over cooked. We would love to send you a voucher to give it another go & if you can email me at richard@balsamic.com.au with your contact information. More

Great for a meal before a movie or after shopping. Staff friendly and large menu to choose from. Bar area is always busy but it is nice to have it divided from the restaurant so there is no noise. Definitely recommend for a lovely meal.
