Michael Bacash prides himself on serving the best seafood selection in Melbourne. His bewitching dishes utilise simple cooking techniques and feature Lebanese culinary influences. Located across from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Bacash Restaurant has a chic but elegantly understated fit-out dominated by dark wood and tinted mirrors. Staff members deliver impeccable service. This is a superb place for a special dinner with loved ones.
While the menu focuses on seafood, there are some delightful vegetarian and meat options as well. Deep-fried zucchini flowers are filled with a fabulous haloumi and ricotta mixture. They are served on a bed of intense green basil pesto dotted with crunchy almonds and sweet currants. Lebanese-style snapper fillet is sensational. The perfectly grilled fish is laid over sumac-braised silverbeet and caramelised onion, while the accompanying coriander salad sprinkled with pine nuts and Middle Eastern spices explodes with flavour.
PSST! You can book the first-floor private dining room for exclusive and intimate lunch or dinner events.
