    The food was quite nice, but for the price, it was pretty standard and indifferent to any food you would get in any other fish restaurant, the chips and tartar sauce were really average too. They were busy and the noise of the phone continually ringing whilst the chef was shouting from the kitchen had really taken away from the experience. The bathrooms were also freezing cold. This isn’t a fine dining restaurant by any measure.

    We had a wonderful lunch. Excellent Service, warm, informed and very professional. The food was flawless. Scallops and quail starter beautifully balanced. The flavours rich and interesting. John Dory possibly the best we’ve had and the goat cheese salad delicious. We finished this excellent meal with the recommended coffee soufflé and left very happy indeed. Can’t wait to be able to bring my friends back.

    Bacash has to be one of the best restaurants in Melbourne. The best fish one anyway. The quality of the fish! The creative style of the recipes is outstanding. I’m a regular restaurant goer and good cook so when I go out I want to eat something that is better than what I can create. Last night I had the Lebanese Snapper. Sensational! My partner had the Whiting. Amazing! As a first course we had 6 oysters each. They were soooo very fresh and beautiful and the Mignonette served with it was gorgeous. The waiter service was helpful without being intrusive. Everything amazing. I’ll be back whenever I can! Thanks team. Keep up the great freshness of the fish!!!.

    Once again Bacash lived up to its reputation, and our previous experience, as Melbourne's best seafood restaurant. The menu choice is excellent and the food is very fresh, well prepared and presented on the plate. The wine list is extensive and includes a comprehensive range of French wines. Our guests from Canberra had not been to Bacash before and were absolutely delighted with their experience.

    Excellent food and service. We had the crab for entree and my husband had the red mullet and I had the mackerel for main, both were absolutely delicious. Will definitely be back again.

    Great service from our waiter. Good variety on the menu plus daily specials - also catered for our food intolerances and still felt indulged. Lovely location across from the botanical gardens with intimate interior if you dine inside. Extensive wine list by the glass or bottle. We dined here as a special night out for family members and were not disappointed.

    My third visit to Bacash and it keeps getting better. Sensational food, fantastic wine and the most sincerely warm, relaxed, unpretentious yet totally spot-on service. The experience is akin to going to a friends place for a meal - except that your friend happens to cook the best seafood in Melbourne. Love this place!

    We admittedly love Bacash restaurant and have been coming here for many years now. Service is attentive but not overbearing and the seafood is always consistently prepared very well. Simplicity and flavour done very well. Great wine list too. Yum

About the restaurant

Swimmingly Good Seafood

What’s in a name? In this case, everything. Owner-chef Michael Bacash has more than 30 years of experience working wonders with food, particularly seafood. At Bacash Restaurant in South Yarra you’ll find a modern, clean aesthetic and food that is precise without being fussy. In between courses, savour the views of the Domain and Royal Botanic Gardens outside the huge windows. And don’t be shy when it comes to asking the staff for a recommendation on food or wine. They have a wealth of knowledge and are more than happy to share it. If you aren’t a huge seafood fan, Bacash is the place that just might convert you. From whole flounder to spaghetti marinara overflowing with prawns, mussels, calamari and juicy seasonal fish, the choices aren’t easy. But if you’d rather your dinner comes from the land than the sea, there are delightful options—just as thoughtfully prepared. Next time you’re in the mood for fine dining that’s all about quality without being pretentious, Bacash Restaurant is the go.

Best Dish: seafood spaghetti marinara
