INSIDER tip

A native-born Québécois, Serge spent his formative years surrounded by a family whose food skills were to leave a lasting impression. Serge began work as a kitchen hand and studied his diploma in Cuisine Professionnelle in 1974. In 1983, Serge helped open the Regent, Sydney, and in 1999 announced his resignation and the opening of his restaurant in the historical Bathers' Pavilion. Serge respects the service tradition and regards quality produce as the optimum ingredient in his cooking.

    Beautifully presented, innovative meals and attentive service. Excellent wine selection. The location by the beach is very special. This restaurant deserves the hats it has been awarded.

    I hadn't eaten a meal in the bistro before. It is a great setting- however the seating was a little cramped and when full the noise level prevented relaxed communication between all four at the table. The food was fresh and tasty and the service were efficient.

    Beautiful setting and excellent service but food disappointing. Soggy kingfish, bouillabaisse fish components also dull. Dessert and cheese platter nice

    One of the best meals in Sydney for some time! The only small negative was that we waited some time to be welcomed and taken to our table, which could have been due to circumstance, but something that can easily be improved. We will be back for sure

    The renovations at Bathers have transformed the restaurant. Great setting, broad menu choices, excellent wine list, top class service, exactly what we have come to expect from Serge. Only criticism is that the tables are too closely packed, one less in each row would enhance the experience.

    Very nice place and great service (Ronnie was fabulous) and food was really nice and well presented and would recommend this place. Only issue is on day I was told there was no al a carte option, minimum was 2 course for $90 which was a little over priced for size of entree/ main and had to order an extra side for added price.

    Lovely atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff. Lovely glass of champagne with compliments for our anniversary. The food was good but not outstanding. Bouillabaisse was recommended but a small serving seemed out of character for this famously hearty dish.

    Food unspectacular except for desert, nice position for restaurant, embarrassing issue with bill (someone else’s) worth going once, food easily reproduced by a competent cook

    This was my second time visiting doing the degustation. The degustation is good but I think it's too expensive for what it is in comparison to other fine dining degustation menus. There were two outstanding dishes - the kingfish and bay bug. The remaining dishes were tasty but they're very standard for fine dining, ie. you could probably eat something quite similar at other fine dining restaurants. The view and interior decor is very nice. I guess this is a safe choice if you wanted to have a nice lunch for a special occasion or have never visited for degustation before.

    best service we've had in ages with food and wine to match. The only thing that matches this is the view over the beach. Theres also a great bar to grab a drink at before and/or after.

    Bathers Restaurant very disappointing service amateur. Waitress kept interrupting and pushing more food when we made it very clear we were happy with just a main. Ordered vegetables which didn’t come. Tables too close together. Nobody to greet us stood in queue.

    Food probably a bit expensive for what it was. Champagne bar was lovely though. The location is of course a winner but don’t want to be ripped off with the cost of the food.
