“Fantastic venue”
Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

Food is excellent, setting idyllic, but some things let them down - wine taking 15 mins or more to arrive - idea is to drink it with the meal not after. Wait staff very pleasant, friendly, but fail to deliver timeously. Few minor things really are what stops them rating really highly. Good value though. Don't plan to eat in a hurry but good atmosphere etc..

“Nice ambience, lovely view of the water and shore, and food consistently good.”
Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

I really enjoy being at this restaurant. Cabinet food,drinks and meals always really nice and staff eager to please you. The dinner menu price seems on the high end but quality never disappoints. Have a fantastic loyalty programme with substantial value vouchers given for your birthday month as well as during the year. Weekly discounts too.

“Had a meal here with friends and loved it!”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

The Bach has a busy but welcoming atmosphere. The service is good, along with the food! It's also a great place to sit with a beer and watch the sunset!

“Pleasant food”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

A birthday dinner in a venue that has a first class location on the seafront (complete with a seal in the water).
The staff provided attentive service and the tablet was cleared promptly after each course. An attempt to use only locally sourced ingredients fell a little flat as only 3 mains contained some local ingredients. The menu and wine list is not extensive, but quite expensive. Mains were priced from $25 to $40, for moderate helpings. eg. One lamb shank $26.00. AV redeeming feature is that being a member of their loyalty club, a discount of one free entree, one main and one desert is offered on the member's birthday. A pleasant night was enjoyed.
