Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the very attentive service. Food selection was very good, the meals I chose were outstanding. Good for couples and ideal for business groups.

“A great little find in the heart of Perth”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

We booked dinner at Balthazar to celebrate our anniversary. I chose the restaurant based on its good reviews on Urban Spoon (restaurant review site) and elsewhere online. The menu was inventive and different and the food was excellent. The service was very good although at times a little slow (the restaurant was full though) but we definitely felt well looked after. When our desserts were brought out they had even written 'Happy Anniversary' on one of the plates in chocolate which was a lovely personal touch (they asked me on booking whether it was a special occasion). The place is tiny and not obvious from the outside so their business must all be from word of mouth rather than walk-ins. It has quite rustic yet industrial decor with really impressive massive wine racks everywhere. The lighting is very dim which along with candles and laid-back music helps to create a great atmosphere. My only slight complaint would be that the lighting was equally as dim in the toilets which made checking your make up near on impossible!!

“Creative”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Nice atmosphere and creative food. I had the pork belly and the duck breast. Both nicely combined with sweetish sauces.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

I dined in Balthazar this week for the second time. My previous visit was in 2004, soon after it opened, and on both occasions the food was outstanding and the service was excellent. I had the pork belly entree and snapper for my main. both were delicious. We asked the waiter to suggest wine and our party of eight were all pleased with his choices. Balthazar is an excellent restaurant and I would thoroughly recommend it to all who visit Perth CBD.

“As good as ever”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Returned to Balthazar after 5 years and it was as good as I remembered it to be. Portions can be a bit small but the food was still innovative, well cooked and superbly presented. Service was attentive but not intrusive and the fact that it was full on a Thursday night is testament to its popularity.
