    The service was friendly and unobtrusive. The food was fresh, well presented and a pretty amazing meal. This is definitely one of the best restaurants in Balmain.

    Beautiful place, amazing location, friendly staff. We’d been here before and had a good experience, but sadly we were disappointed this time. we love the place and we want to come back, which is why we’re leaving this review because we’d love for the Fenwick to go back to its amazing standards. Entrees were spot on - we had the buratta with prosciutto and the mozzarella with anchovies, both really good. But then the mains were really bland. The beef cheeks were tender but lacked flavour; the sweet potato mash and the mushrooms didn’t really complement the meat and were just as forgettable. Plus it was actually slightly cold. The gnocchi with mushrooms tasted a bit like hospital food, like the only seasoning was salt and maybe garlic. The sauce tasted like it’d been thickened with cornflour.. not a pleasant meal.

    We enjoyed our lunch and visit. Two thinks could be improved: less Butter Sauce on the Snapper Tail and having windows in the doors to be able to close the doors when inclement weather.

    Gorgeous dining spot and they looked after us really well. I ordered the burrata for entree which went well with the nectarines and the balsamic glaze. For main the snapper tail was soft and flakey and finally for dessert the millefoglie was probably the most crispiest I've ever had.

    Thank you Zoe. We’re so pleased you enjoyed. We will certainly pass your comments on to the team. We look forward to welcoming you back to The Fenwick in the future.

    Gorgeous setting for this restaurant on the foreshore at Balmain. The food was good without being exceptional and the service was a bit lacking on this busy Sunday, with a long wait for food to appear. Worth a visit for location.

    The location of this restaurant is exceptional - a really pretty spot by the water. The food is nice as well although perhaps more the usual suspects as far as breakfast is concerned rather than anything too imaginative. But good all the same! The egg white omelette is very more-ish. Definitely book this place for a nice meal out.

    An amazing location with lovely attentive wait staff - unfortunately food was average at best - fellow diners commented on how salty their dishes were and you need to purchase side dishes (salads, veggies etc) to complete the mains which makes the meals $$$

    The Fenwick

    Thank you for your feedback, Victoria. We are glad to hear you enjoyed the location and service on your recent visit to The Fenwick. We were surprised to read your comments regarding the menu however we are always endeavouring to improve our offering and as such we have passed your feedback on to the Head Chef for review. In regards to pricing, we always endeavour to ensure our pricing reflects the quality of our offering. Our average entrée price is $23. We believe this reflects our goal to provide quality dishes using the freshest seasonal produce and value for money. Thank you and we do hope you will consider dining with us again.

    We had the Snapper Tail and Rib Eye. Both were just slightly over cooked. The service was great. Biggest complaint was the music, it was unnecessary, too loud and terrible 80´s stuff. It would not be too difficult to find some really nice but interesting chill music to go with the fabulous setting.

    Great to FINALLY have a waterside eatery in Balmain....& a good one at that! Huge servings for breakfast meals whiich were yummy & nicely presented. Just a pity there's no dinner service. here. Where else in the world would you have such an under utilised waterfront setting?.No wonder Sydney lags behind in tourism....this place could be a real destination restaurant!

    Absolutely stunning location. The service was impeccable, our beautiful waitress knew every meal and all of the dietary requirements which is very important if you’re a high maintenance eater!!! Wine list divine, also affordable but more on the special occasion side of thighs. They even did a special home made chocolate plaque with happy birthday on it for my birthday and we didn’t even ask!!!!! Well worth it, thank you ❤️

    Fabulous repurposing of this heritage building in an exquisite location. Food top quality. Service warm & attentive, but too slow to bring the bill when requested. Quite pricey. If airconditioning is not compatible with the structure, ceiling fans should be installed.
