Beautiful views over Balmoral

Relaxed cafe with plenty of seating. Menu doesn't change very often but offers enough variety. Great fish and chips, lovely salads, kids menu.

Even though we are locals we hadn't been here for years - the thoughts of perceived queues with no bookings or Bathers as the 'must do' overpriced cafe and restaurant didn't appeal ...... but what a delightful surprise! !! No crowd, very tasty breakfast menu, perfect coffee and service, normal Sydney prices and one of THE dining views of Sydney... More

These converted bathing changing rooms are beautiful. The view is beautiful. The space is casual beachside elegance. Food is unquestionably French, and all the better for it. Perfect spot for a long Sunday lunch. Shame the taxi ride home is so long, otherwise we would dine here more often.

Serge owner of Bathers is a genius when it comes to sourcing food for his menus. He then excels at cooking the most amazing meals weather in his Fine Dining restaurant or his cafe. A must visit for anyone visiting or living in Sydney.

I have been here once but today I am so glad I came back! Love the seating, the view, the stuff but most importantly the food and the presentation! Everything we had was just spotless! Had a special crab dish, tuna sashimi, the lamb & sweet corn soup as mains accompanied by the best mash potato ever! Also the strawberry... More

Bathers is about synergy, it takes a beautiful location, adds delicious food, engaging, helpful staff and let's you do the rest. Add good friends and family and your day will be as good as it gets

Be it a quick meal, a coffee (or tea), or a cake this restaurant is a winner. Breakfast is great and a large choice. Friendly and knowledgeable staff as well.

We continue to return to this restaurant simply because it has never let us down on the food and atmosphere - another 3 hour lunch for 7 of us confirmed this yet again. Others have noted that it is pricey but the reality is that for the little extra you might pay you get a whole lot in return. The... More

I hasd lunch at this restaurant with some work colleagues in December and I absolutely loved it! The food was great (desserts are amazing) and the service was perfect. We had a table by the window and the view on the beach was breathtaking! I will come back here soon with my hubby for a romantic dinner.

We had a lovely evening here and enjoyed the view, service and food. However we only had one course and 1 bottle of wine and we thought the bill was extortionate. We have had just as good a meal, in equally nice surroundings for half the price. If we return it will be to the cafe not the restaurant!
