I'm not sure how to write this post without gushing about how fantastic it was, but I'll try. Bather's Pavilion is situation right on the esplanade at Balmoral Beach, easily my favourite spot in Sydney.
It's the most gorgeously sunny day on a Sunday, and it's families galore and beach goers soaking up the sunshine. Everything tastes better with a view like this, and I'm kicking myself for not bringing beach gear to go for a dip.
We manage to grab a table on the cafe side instantly even though it's quite busy.
I love the casual feel of the restaurant, and the fact that you can just wander past when you fancy, and get a table due to their no bookings policy.
My refreshing fruity mocktail - looks good doesn't it? Everything on the drinks menu looked so good, I could barely decide!
Enjoying my drink and the view
Peppered beef fillet mignons with French style peas and potato gratin
Chicken involtini with white bean purée, baby zucchini with tomato sugo
Crème caramel, poached caramel pears, cinnamon filo crisp
Pineapple tart tartin, pineapple compote, coconut ice-cream
As you can see, the food is beautifully presented, and was a delicious. The only thing was the long wait for food, but seriously, it doesn't feel like much of a wait when you have such a great view!
