A leisurely Saturday lunch down at Balmoral with Mum and Nan while Leslie was visiting her own Mom back in the States in April.
After some initial confusion about our booking made earlier in the morning (the person at the other end of the phone had made it for a month later, and notably no apology from the maitre d'), we were 'found' a table, unfortunately not on the windows as requested.

The meal was good, if not great. I thought the flavour combination of the scallops with prawn and chorizo excellent, however the chorizo crumb could have been more generous.
The flavours on the kingfish sashimi were quite muted whilst the prawns packed a solid punch.
My fish of the day, barramundi was superbly cooked but the citrus gel just didn't gel! The fish and chips was a generous portion and the duck had also been cooked well. I'm not a blue cheese fan so steered clear of the cauliflower blue cheese which was quickly devoured.
The pineapple souffle was also a nice little dessert with the accompaniments however there was very little pineapple taste in the souffle instead (perhaps this was intentional?)
As is to be expected, dining down at Balmoral wasn't cheap with entrees averaging $25, and mains $40. They do accept the entertainment book for a discount so remember to bring your card along!
