    Bacash has been around quite a while but continues to set the bar high. A go to place for seafood in surroundings that are comfortable & you can hear yourself think

    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

    Food was ok although expensive for serving size. Wine list was incredibly expensive and Australian red wine selection especially narrow. Generally over priced.

    I have been to this restaurant quite a few times. The wait staff are rushing a bit. There is some abruptness in their service.

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
