wine list offer wide choice and reasonable prices delicious food -raw oysters and the scallops dish are excellent and recommended nice decor but dark and should have a small table lamp to read the menu table service should include some advice from waitress on wines and food

had dinner recently with friends. Excellent food, great service, extensive wine list. Price at the upper end but not over the top. Intricate flavours, some unusual dishes, excellent.

Great restaurant in a very discreet building, but be prepared for an expensive meal out. Wine list good, but again the wines were on the pricy side. Quality - excellent

It's a special occasion in a father's life when his son takes him out for dinner. So this year my birthday gift was a memorable few hours at Balthazar combining excellent service, outstanding presentation, fabulous flavours: all in the quality surrounds of the marvellous Lawson Building. You can measure the comfortability of the dining experience by the quality of the... More

We've had a few meals at Balthazar and have never been disappointed. The service is impeccable, wait staff attentive but not intrusive. The wine is matched to the food beautifully. It's not a cheap night out, but for a special occasion or to impress - it hits the mark.

I love food in small portions but lots of different things. Degustation. This place is out of this world. I have been there as a couple, with another couple and with a group of friends. All experiences have been super duper. The service: EXCELLENT. Staff know their wines and the menu. They seem to have a good feel for when... More

What can I say, best meal ever. Romantic evening with my wife, service food and restaurant was fantastic. Wine menu to suit all snobs. Expensive but worth every cent

Hosted in a cavern like space below The Lawson residential building where Rupert Murdoch once lived when he first bought The Sunday Times it is a calm, warm and cosy... More

The food was great and the flavours were unique. Servings were on the smaller side and my partner and I had to order a little serving of bread to keep us going as the main took ages. After I paid the waitress didn't bring back the change and we had to ask for it. The service wasn't worthy of a... More

There seems to be plenty of hype around Perth about this restaurant but tonight it just failed to deliver. The atmosphere was as dark as a sordid opium den which made reading the menu hard, winelist impossible. The music, turn it down "please" it was unbearably loud. The food well chefs cooking can't be faulted my sirloin (what little there... More
