Service 5 star, food 5 star, venue 5 star. Very cool that the owners work the floor and are very personable.

My wife and I had dinner at this small,cozy spot. Very sophisticated wine list and some of the best cooking we have tasted. We had steak and pasta--all dishes extremely flavorful and creative. Pleasant service. Music a bit to load, but that is now the norm. Restaurant is in the center of city. You can't go wrong.

This restuarant continues to offer outstanding food. I started with scallops for entree and had duck for main. The portion sizes are small but because the quality of food is so great you feel satisfied. My friends had trouble completing their dessert because they were so full due to the richness of the food. Definitely a place to return to... More

My husband and I took our son and his partner here last week. The menu has changed and is still "interesting". The place prides itself on its wine list, which frankly baffled me, sourced from all over the world I didnt recognise anything. The prices raged fro $65 to !!!!!! a bottle and of the two wines we were able... More

A great place for dinner. The lady serving us could not have been more helpful. The food was all good and the wine list extensive. The tartare of lamb as a starter was delicious. Highly recommended for anyone visiting Perth.

Couldn't fault it. Lovely service, top shelf meals that were interesting and different, good wine in a very friendly atmosphere.

Not sure what has happened at this place over the past year or so, but it's gone from a 1 star shellacking by a national restaurant critic, to a shining light of Perth's riverside dining precinct. Used to be: dated, disorganised, downright embarrassing. Now: progressive, professional, bloomin' exciting. The food is on point, the wine is both interesting and challenging,... More

Went for dinner when I was in Perth for work. Perth is full of great food and even better service. I am from Melbourne and I think Perth has a few things to teach Melbourne. The service at Balthazar was probably the best my partner and I have ever had anywhere. The mid 30s male was the right mix of... More

This style of restaurant, you need to like. Active waiters give you a lot of information in a short time. Even stories on beer as if it is wine. Nice! They also recommend dishes, which we liked. Limited choices, which fits the modern style menus. Great food! Clean toilets, excellent location at the new designed harbor.

Balthazar has truly resurrected its self to its former glory. The Chef is on fine form with what is offered on the menu, clever use of great produce with imaginative flare. Fantastic wine list, from small producers which is constantly changing. The service was on the mark. We had a table looking over Elizabeth Quay, which topped off a fabulous... More
