Cruised down mid morning on a sunny Summer Saturday with limited expectation of getting a table for brunch Pleasantly surprised and from that point we continued to be overwhelmed by fantastic, attentive service The seasonal fruit salads and Bslmoral brekkie are recommended as are the juices - I opted for the beetroot infused 'Red Sunset' veggie juice Arguably one of...

The champagne, oysters and coffee were exceptional. The kids mains (overly rich cannelloni and dry, over cooked fish), adults entree and mains (again overly rich and over presented) along with the kids drink (complete with dead fly) were very disappointing, especially given the prices. We'll be going to Pilu next time.

We have been dining at Bathers since our 20th wedding anniversary in 2004. It was the restaurant we went to for special family events. There were 6 of us for lunch today to celebrate a family birthday. There is little I can say to recommend today's occasion. Bad service - mediocre food. The "complimentary" amuse bouche was dry. The entrees... More

Great food and service. First time I'd been back in a few years and Bathers' didn't disappoint. Pancakes were great.

After having a stressed out experience at The Balmoral Boathouse we came here and it was a welcomed relief. Someone to greet us at the door and show us to our table. Lovely staff and food. Five stars from all of us

I'm a local and this place may be the best alternative for a group lunch. Menu caters for most diets and budgets. Service is quick. Food is fresh, portions are decent and the view to Balmoral beach is breath- taking! Our favourites: pasta with Gorgonzola sauce and 4 cheese wood fire pizza. Easy to get a table after 2:30 pm....

Have dined here many times over the years for breakfast or lunch. It never gets mundane or boring. The menu is always well listed with a fantastic array of local produce. The wine list is also comprehensive and well matched to the menu also. It is a little on the pricey side but, the food is definately worth it. And... More

The food here just keeps getting better. I had breakfast here today and the croque monsieur was gorgeous. It was so good that we came back for seconds at lunch. This time I had the mussels and again it didn't disappoint - perfectly cooked and seasoned. My friend had the pan fried barramundi and she couldn't stop raving about it.... More
