The Baths is a good restaurant. The issue is whether the cost meets the standard. My view is probably not. I think you are probably paying an 10% to 15% for the view - and it you end up near a pillar, that can be a little restricted!
The food was good. We shared an entree of the Tasting Board for 2 - our 3rd guest did not want entree. Essentially, for $40, you got a serve of cold cuts and some garnishes along with some thinly sliced raw tuna. The price was about right. Most of the other entrees were over $20 and in some cases over $25.
For mains, we had barramundi, the duck and a porterhouse. The average cost of these dishes was about $35. All of the dishes were tasty, adequate in size but probably closer to the $30 mark.
We skipped desert and the wine, which we consumed by the glass (5 glasses all up) was around the $12 to $15 mark - again, not expensive, but not cheap.
In the end, we averaged out at $100 per person and that was without a dessert (although we did order tea and coffee). Had we included dessert we would have hit the $350 mark.
Overall, a good meal but just that little more expensive than I thought it should have been. Interestingly, for a Thursday night, there were only 4 tables occupied - I know it is school holidays and that the Brighton set head away on holidays, but a restaurant with a view of the beach (and city skyline) with only 4 tables occupied at 7.30 to 8 pm on a Thursday night must have some drawback; I suspect it is the price. Even people in Brighton know what is and isn't good value; this is on the cusp which probably explains the low customer turnout.
