Bathers' Pavilion

7:00am - 9:30pm
4 The Esplanade Balmoral Beach


Bathers at Home is a way of pre-ordering to pick up at the kiosk or to have packed straight into your car boot. The menu includes entrees, mains and pantry staples. More information is available on Instagram.

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.
