A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

INSIDER by TheFork is a carefully curated selection of top tier venues, the ones with hats, the ones that make the top dining guides, and most importantly the ones we know you love!

INSIDER tip

Head Chef Adam Tyl was inspired by Australia’s subtropical climate, which led him and his young family to move from Poland to the warmer shores, he now calls home. Adam’s talent for creating simple, approachable and exciting dishes has seen a strong emphasis on sustainability, balance and passion that is reflected in our menus. He has brought our food back to basics to let the seasonal and fresh produce shine. The menu features flavour combinations that are light, fresh and fun which include a range of sustainable seafood, organic poultry and locally sourced vegetables. Chef Adam “wants diners to be excited and surprised by what his menu has to offer.

    Perfect service, accompanied by an excellent meal. I really enjoyed the stuffed baby squid and the Alberino that was recommended was a perfect match.

    Small portions. Service was hard to flag down. Place is beautiful with nice views. It feels a bit that you pay for view, rather than food.

    Gorgeous location, perfect service. Preferred the yellowfin tartare over the duck tortellini but both were tasty and beautifully presented.

    The portions were at the smaller end of expectation and the duck sauce could have been hotter. nothing further to add.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

About the restaurant

A Balmoral Beauty...

If you’ve made it to Balmoral Baths, then you’ve pretty much got the location sorted. Tick one for Public Dining Room. As you sit in this bright, contemporary room with huge dome lights punctuating the open space, floor-to-ceiling windows and warm timbers throughout, spirits and instantly raised. When heart-warming, tasty food is served you know you’ve hit a winner. Tick Two for Public Dining Room.The focus here is on casual fine food – supporting Australian ingredients, suppliers and sustainable seafood wherever possible. Breakfasts of smashed avocado on Sonoma toast with Yarra Valley fetta and seasonal Portobello mushrooms covered with grana padano are a popular choice. Lunch and dinner options run from oyster selections, to gin-cured trout or Thirlmere duck (confit and smoked). It’s good for the soul type food served in a picture perfect setting - the kind of dining experience that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Who doesn't want a bit of that?

Best dish: gin-cured trout
