We have been to bathers many times over the years and it is always a bit hit and miss but we will keep going back again and again because it it right on the beach at Balmoral and who could ask for more.

We were seated promptly and on the way to our table I ordered a glass of wine from the Barperson pointing out the table we were going to. Menus arrived promptly and a bottle of sparkling water was ordered and... More

We came for Sunday lunch and it was great, excellent food, cooked to perfection, fabulous salad dressing, perfectly skilled staff and good coffee. The wine, the view and the kindness are a plus. Very reasonably priced. Come and enjoy!

My wife and I went to the cafe on a Tuesday evening, found this place very peaceful, tranquil.The staff were welcoming and we were treated like one of the family. We have been to many Cafe's / restaurants on the Northern Beaches, we found Bathers'Pavilion Cafe one of the best that we had been to. Although this was in the... More

Venue and location on the beach: fantastic Food quality: good bistro food, but nothing amazing Value for money: it's expensive for cafe food. Eg, salmon dish was $38 Service: disappointing My biggest issue with Bathers Cafe is the... More
