Food,wine,staff ,view and company all superb.We had a wonderful evening and definitely will return.Infact we have no idea why we haven’t been more often????
We have been coming here for our wedding anniversary for 23 years and have never beeen dissapointed . An outstanding restaurant ! We would reccomend it unreservedly .
A special evening for us, celebrating our guest's "O" birthday. The atmosphere was relaxed and ambience very pleasant. The food overall was excellent, however more substantial vegetarian options would have been desirable. I made the mistake of ordering the fish and chips, which was nothing to write home about, just very ordinary and I may as well have just bought it from across the road. During the course of the evening, one of the wait staff knocked a full glass of water over my husband. Yes, accidents do happen but this is quite an establishment & prides itself on being so, and I personally felt that some sort of compensation should have been offered for this incident.
Great breakfast, view and friendly service. Thanks!
We were a little underwhelmed overall with the food. We did enjoy the king prawns and roast pumpkin dish but the rest of the meal fell short. The pork belly was dry with minimal crackling, and nothing really stood out. Great beachside setting but I'd expect better food for the prices we paid.
This restaurant was a great find. The staff were great. Wonderful service and they were genuinely nice. Food was tasty, very fresh, could not fault our order. Mocktails was a little on the pricey side - Berrylicious (contained only strawberry puree and possibly soda water) $12. Location also great, stepping out right to the beach.
Amazing food, beautiful views and fantastic service. Great kids menu and they have high chairs. A really wonderful place for a special occasion with the family.
great breakfast smoked salmon and eggs was the best so was the service and views
Amazing food and wine!! Staff were wonderful and so accommodating. Could not fault them. Ambiance is something else. Can’t wait to go there again!
Great night as always.
Great service, beautiful setting and delicious food.
A wonderful setting - lovely view and relaxed beach vibe while still feeling a little special. Food is great for sharing. Service was nice. A touch slow at times.
Public Dining Room really lived up to its reputation- we thoroughly enjoyed our first visit great food, good selection of wine and wonderful friendly staff and of course the fabulous view.
Sensation location, great food and service. It’s a little pricey but a great treat for a special occasion . Thanks for my birthday voucher ??
Good food - just a little bit over priced
Amazing views in summer! Food was so nice too
My guests were very impressed. A great place to take my overseas visitors, as I always have done. And will continue to frequent there whenever possible.
Stuffed squid was delicious and service was great
Public Dining Room can be a tad noisy but this is normal. There are often large groups of people, including young children, but the popularity of this restaurant is why. Don’t let that deter you; the food is expertly prepared, beautiful to regard, and delicious, if a bit salty. When my daughter says a particular dish is salty, believe me, it is salty. Again, don’t let that deter you. Just ask the friendly and knowledgeable floor staff when you order and they will adjust the seasoning accordingly. One final mention: It is possible you will find several of the small plates really small but don’t be dismayed; the ingredients are special and meant to be savoured. I highly recommend Public Dining. Enjoy!
Had a table by the window; what a great view on a Sunday morning! With food and service to match; it was a wonderful meal and exactly what we wanted!

A Balmoral Beauty...
If you’ve made it to Balmoral Baths, then you’ve pretty much got the location sorted. Tick one for Public Dining Room. As you sit in this bright, contemporary room with huge dome lights punctuating the open space, floor-to-ceiling windows and warm timbers throughout, spirits and instantly raised. When heart-warming, tasty food is served you know you’ve hit a winner. Tick Two for Public Dining Room.The focus here is on casual fine food – supporting Australian ingredients, suppliers and sustainable seafood wherever possible. Breakfasts of smashed avocado on Sonoma toast with Yarra Valley fetta and seasonal Portobello mushrooms covered with grana padano are a popular choice. Lunch and dinner options run from oyster selections, to gin-cured trout or Thirlmere duck (confit and smoked). It’s good for the soul type food served in a picture perfect setting - the kind of dining experience that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Who doesn't want a bit of that?
Best dish: gin-cured trout
