Bathers’ Pavilion. Coastal dining at its very best.

Set on Sydney’s Balmoral Beach overlooking Middle Harbour, the much-loved Bathers’ Pavilion combines beachside elegance with a 1920s art deco soul and Mediterranean charm. Bathers’ is the perfect Sydney restaurant with a view for special occasions, life’s celebrations, a family meal or even the ultimate beachside fish and chips.

Owners Serge Dansereau and Ian Pagent deliver the best of Australian coastal dining, from beach snacks through to fine dining, across a variety of different spaces within the grand heritage building. All with spectacular views over Balmoral Beach.

It’s classic. It’s coastal. It’s Bathers’.
