Known for its spectacular coastal views from Manly to North Head, Public Dining Room offers couples the choice from a number of unique function spaces to create their beach wedding of their dreams.

Located at the southern end of Balmoral Beach, Public Dining Room offers sweeping views from its boardwalk to Manly and North Head.

The restaurant boasts an enviable position on the banks of Mosman’s historic Balmoral Baths. More than a century has passed, and the area’s gentle charm still captivates visitors from near and far. Yachts dot the harbour and bushland hugs the sea. This is where sophistication and iconic beachside culture meet.
