Bathers’ Pavilion is housed in a heritage-listed Mediterranean-style building, with an opulent onyx bar at the centre, cosy booths and a lounge area. Two dining areas sit on either side of the building: fine dining at the restaurant, and a casual-yet-refined bistro.
There’s also a private dining room in a luxurious wing of the building surrounded by art, with the ocean just outside the window. The first-floor Louis Roederer Terrace is home to a chic champagne bar open to the public. It’s the perfect place to spend an afternoon drinking spritzes and bubbly and swallowing oysters.
The food throughout is French-leaning, with a coastal ethos. The bistro menu includes classics such as pepper steak, fish’n’chips, pizza and linguine with clams. In the restaurant, expect two and three-course seafood-heavy set menus (there's no à la carte). There’s also a kiosk serving juice, coffee, gourmet picnic hampers and ice blocks.
The beverage menu includes cocktails (including spritzes, Margaritas and sours) and an extensive range of new and old-world wines.
