Went here for a dinner with a bit of trepidation based on some negative reviews in Trip Advisor. Not sure why all of the sour comments, since the complaints others made didn't apply on our night. It is darker than normal, but not too dark - could read without issue - and adds a cosy and a tiny bit mystic... More

Enjoyed the meal very much. I had the tasting plate for starter which was excellent at $16. For my main course I had duck which consisted of breast and confit and was delicious. Chocolate layered cake for dessert finished off a delightful meal. The restaurant has subdued lighting and from the outside you don't see any diners.

A MAN walks into a bar … No, actually, he walks into a restaurant, in Perth, about 7pm on a Thursday night, gagging for a drink. “A glass of white wine,” he says. “What have you got?” The waiter goes through some varieties. Fresh from a holiday in Spain, our man plumps for “an albariño”. A glass of wine arrives,... More

I recently took a customer and one of my colleges to Balthazar restaurant. The staff were exceptional, we hadn't booked, but they managed to squeeze us in for our evening meal with minimum fuss. The food was perfect for the occasion with our waitress giving us some perfect recommendations. The waitresses name from memory was Joanne I think. We had... More

First of all the address was a bit hard to find. The dining room was very dark and I am so sure that it was the best idea. There were only three staffs serving in the room. I think that it was under staff for a busy evening. We were served our main courses after a Hugh table of guests... More

My birthday dinner occurred at Balthazar Restaurant yesterday. Easy access, only one step from the street into the restaurant. They take early dinner bookings from 5.30pm, great for jet lagged travellers! Lovely decor, happy, knowledgable service staff. We are seated, offered menus and water. We are happily reading the small printed menu, 3 appetisers, 5 entrees, 8 main course plus... More

I have been to Balthazar a few times and it never fails to deliver - every course absolutely stunning! All relishes, black pudding, bread etc made on premises. Intimate setting, fabulous wine list, great service. If you love food- try Balthazar

My husband's boss was in town and we were looking for a new dining experience. We had heard some mixed reviews about this restaurant and we decided to try it anyway. As some people have remarked we also found it was quite dark. Not enough lighting and had to use the torch on our phones to read the menu. Not... More

We decided to dine at this restaurant to celebrate my wife's birthday and it did not disappoint. From the moment we entered through the front doors we were greeted by friendly attentive staff. I loved the dim lights which enhanced the romantic feel of the room, in a sense I felt that we could be back in New York. Our... More
