INSIDER tip

The heart and soul of Bacash is cultivated by its founders and operators, Michael & Fiona. Their passion and commitment to their craft is evident the moment you set foot inside the door, where you’ll be greeted with warmth, an impeccable wine selection and the best tasting flounder this side of the Pacific. Michael & Fiona invite you to come and experience Bacash – a place where the best of the sea meets the lush green of Melbourne’s botanical gardens.

    Flavoursome food in a laid back comfortable setting. Great meal with fresh fish that just fell apart. The mix of flavours in the starters was wonderful. Will definitely be back again.

About the restaurant

Swimmingly Good Seafood

What's in a name? In this case, everything. Owner-chef Michael Bacash has more than 30 years of experience working wonders with food, particularly seafood. At Bacash Restaurant in South Yarra you'll find a modern, clean aesthetic and food that is precise without being fussy. In between courses, savour the views of the Domain and Royal Botanic Gardens outside the huge windows. And don't be shy when it comes to asking the staff for a recommendation on food or wine. They have a wealth of knowledge and are more than happy to share it. If you aren't a huge seafood fan, Bacash is the place that just might convert you. From whole flounder to spaghetti marinara overflowing with prawns, mussels, calamari and juicy seasonal fish, the choices aren't easy. But if you'd rather your dinner comes from the land than the sea, there are delightful options—just as thoughtfully prepared. Next time you're in the mood for fine dining that's all about quality without being pretentious, Bacash Restaurant is the go.

Best Dish: seafood spaghetti marinara
