Went there for my birthday and made a note on the booking it was for that occasion along with my birthday voucher. Only downside is that they could have prepared the ‘birthday surprise dessert’ a little better prior to paying for the bill and about to leave.. but it was a lovely gesture regardless! always have a wonderful time here, thank you.

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
