French-Canadian Chef Serge Dansereau came to Australia in the early 1980s. He famously lifted the profile of the Regent Hotel’s Kable’s restaurant to one of serious acclaim, while at the same time helping to foster new levels of quality from Australian producers.
Looking out over turquoise water lapping the white sand of Balmoral Beach, The Bathers’ Pavilion is a great place to bring friends from out of town for a long lunch, or to catch the sunset at dinner on a summer evening.
In The Bathers’ dining room, the food is distinctly Australian with a European slant, and the dishes are still defined by Chef Dansereau’s reliance on great produce. Ordering from the set menu, appetisers are a choice between seasonal dishes such as octopus carpaccio or Moreton Bay bug tail with polenta and pops of finger lime. For mains, try the slow-cooked ocean trout wrapped in seaweed, with parcels of gnocchi and scatterings of salmon roe.
