Still the best location for breakfast

Frederico took care of our coffees, twice, and brought our breakfasts with a Florentine flourish. Scrambled eggs, spinach tart, gluten free toast... Fabulous!

The views are superb. We breakfasted here and would recommend cafes across the road not difficult to understand why they had all the customers. $6 for a coffee methinks never again. Totally overpriced for food and beverages we won't be back

What a disappointment! Although the setting is lovely there is nothing else to compliment this restaurant. The chicken I ordered was undercooked, the waiter and maître d' rude and arrogant, the service slow and the meals overpriced. I was given a voucher from my daughter and I'm sorry she wasted her money. I shall not frequent here again.

Top marks for the view, but less so for the food. It could well have been that I didn't choose very well but the pizza wasn't so much a pizza as a baked flatbread that didn't live up its $26 price tag, and what are described as small plates on the menu really are just that. I've had breakfast here... More

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
