We all deserve a little luxury..
Balthazar Wine & Dining have brought the next level of finesse to the Gold Coast. No detail goes missed when it comes to this culinary delight, a degustation menu of five courses, each paired with its own wine, head chef and sommelier in tow educating you on the finer details of each dish.
Nestled away in Crowne Plaza Surfers Paradise, Balthazar offers a truly specialised dining experience. Enough seats to cater up to 18 guests, the restaurant puts focus on private dining hire. With 15 menus and over 500 wines to choose from, all which can be customised, there is no palate that will go unpleased. Three talented Chefs contribute to the selection of cuisines; Modern Australian, Italian and Asian Fusion. Not only does Balthazar offer degustation and full course menus, they also have divine tapas menus available, again with perfectly paired wines.
The very best hand picked wines line two walls, a Balthazar bottle (a very large bottle of wine, equivalent in capacity to sixteen regular bottles.. no hangover we promise) sits proudly on display and a long marble table fills the centre of the room, accentuated by two unique chandeliers made entirely of wine glasses. The countless bottles of wine aren't just placed in the room to look pretty, they are also available for purchase, so not only is this restaurant a place to indulge in some fantastic food but also doubles as a wine shop!
Just to give you an idea on the indulgences that lie ahead, a few teasers from the menu; Grass-fed Oakey Farm Beef Tenderloin, served with Goose liver, potatoe duchesse, green peas a-la-Francaise and double reduced jus married with nothing but the best, a glass of Penfolds 'Grange' Shiraz 2003. For the sweet tooth, a Citrus Tartlet, lemon thyme syrup, vanilla creme fraiche served with fresh figs and berries, accompanied by Penfolds 'Cellar reserve' Viognier 2014. This menu barely scratches the surface of the wonders that Balthazar has to offer.
Guaranteed to impress, and certain to swoon, we highly recommend booking your next decadent event at Balthazar Wine & Dining. Perfect for that special occasion and sure to put a smile on the face of even the biggest connoisseur.
