Xmas in July was one of my best experiences at Bathers that just keeps on delivering. This is my first ten out of ten rating for any restaurant highlighting a wonderful evening including Serge being on hand to cap it off.

The degustation contained 4 dishes I probably would not have picked if a la carte. And I would have missed delicious food and well matched wines

About The Bathers' Pavilion

Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner with a View With unspoiled views over peaceful and sparkly Balmoral beach, The Bathers’ Pavillion sits on one of Sydney’s most attractive locations, just a stone’s throw away from the sand and cozzie-clad crowd on the beach below. Set in a beautifully restored historic beach pavillion (hence the name), internationally acclaimed celebrity chef, Serge Dansereau dazzles guests with his dishes such as crisp skin barramundi with heirloom carrots nasturtium, black olive and chorizo. If dessert is more your thing, you’ll swoon over the wattle seed crème brûlée with passionfruit curd banana, pastry toffee, macadamia ice cream. Oh heavenly father it’s good. With huge glass windows in both the restaurant and the more casual cafe, it’s the perfect place to unwind and let the worries of the world wash away - for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Best dish: crisp skin barramundi with heirloom carrots nasturtium, black olive and chorizo
