Went with a friend for breakfast as we were tentative about the more expensive lunch and dinner menus. The food was good and the staff were very friendly. Kitchen ran out of mushrooms to be ordered as a side which was a little disappointing, but was very timely in telling us. We will be back for lunch when the rain goes away !
Hi Alison, So glad you could join us for breakfast! So sorry about the mushrooms - it seems everybody had a craving for mushrooms on the weekend, which is most unusual and as a result left us short!! We would love to see you back for lunch or dinner now that the sun is shining!! You should visit our website to have a look at our lunch and dinner specials that we are currently offering - I am sure this will be something that might interest you!

Very helpful with late booking adjustment. Food choice was excellent. We shared the scampi for entree. Our waitress arranged to have the dish delivered on two plates which was a nice touch. My partner had the market fish - snapper. It was beautiful and juicy. I had moreton bay bugs and prawns in seafood bisque. This was divine.
Hi Howard Thank you so much for your lovely detailed review! We are so pleased that your recent dining experience with us was a memorable one and we look forward to you joining us again sometime soon!

Our service staff were lovely. One of the ladies has worked there a while and is fantastic. Expertly handled our request to remove fennel from one of the entrees & my feedback on the jazz playing, which I’m not a fan of!). A lovely evening, food and drinks.

Excellent restaurant & food, only complaint the drinks waiters DID NOT ask if a refill or fresh was required, they just went ahead & did so. .very poor in our opinion.

Still one of my favourite restaurants in Sydney. Go back time and time again and it never disappoints. Highly recommend if you want great food, service and views.

About Public Dining Room

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
