Meet the Chef

Head Chef Adam Tyl was inspired by Australia's subtropical climate, which led him and his young family to move from Poland to the warmer shores, he now calls home. Adam's talent for creating simple, approachable and exciting dishes has seen a strong emphasis on sustainability, balance and passion that is reflected in our menus. He has brought our food back to basics to let the seasonal and fresh produce shine. The menu features flavour combinations that are light, fresh and fun which include a range of sustainable seafood, organic poultry and locally sourced vegetables. Chef Adam “wants diners to be excited and surprised by what his menu has to offer.

    Our local favourite shines again. Excellent service from Charles, beautiful slow roasted shoulder of lamb with roast vegetables. A special treat when we dine here as we cannot cook this well!

    Great setting and atmosphere in spite of rain outside. Meal was delicious, especially the peach soufflee. Staff should wait until customers have finished eating before coming to clear away plates.

About the restaurant

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
