Situated in the quiet area of Sunset Way at the Clementi Arcade, Bather's is the unpretentious bistro that serves good fresh food at reasonable prices. Definitely a cozy spot for a romantic evening for two.
The crab bisque here is great! Real crab taste :) The rest of the food is ok.. mostly western(fusion). I've had better and worse for the price. The staff are friendly but sometimes can be a bit blur. If you're nice they will ltreat you nice haha. Don't expect any real ambience though. Just wear your faded jeans and t-shirt and you will fit right in with the rest of the neighbours from the surrounding area.
It was a special treat for Mother’s Day and went to Bather’s restaurant through a friend’s recommendation. The restaurant is very rustic and homely ambience nested in a quaint neighborhood inside Sunset way next to a Cold Storage and ice-cream place. I have called to make reservation and planed a special Chef’s creation meal for mum to surprise her. Totally awesome and impressed with the food. We started with a mushroom soup and crab bisque soup. The mushroom soup is awesome and the crab bisque is smooth and fresh. The soup also comes with fragrance toasted garlic bread. We had few starters - otak and mini quail leg - the mix seafood otak taste fresh and homemake and I can literally taste bits of prawn and squid. First time I try quail leg and it was yummy. Next we had smoked salmon wrap with salad and a cute little egg, simple and refreshing. The highlight was the grilled squid on salsa and the crab meat ball on baked cheese simply heavenly. For main course, Mum had the pork belly which the skin was crisp and meat was tender and soft. I had the bacon sausage roll over pumpkin tofu and its delicious too. Overall, had a memorable time and enjoyable meal. Will definitely go back again.

1) Complimentary starter.
This was SO GOOD.
The garlic bread was piping hot, crispy and really fragrant.
The cracker comes with mango and tomato and a piece of salami sitting in a special sauce that was both sweet and sour.
What's not to love?
Awesome start to dinner we say!
We thought of asking for another plate.. haha
2) Seafood Marinara - spicy light neopolitan sauce $19.50
Sometimes, I can get quite boring.
I tend to always choose seafood marinara haha.
Anyway the spaghetti was well-cooked.
Not too soft, not too hard.
The ingredients were fresh and delicious.
However, this dish was lacking in flavour.
There wasn't any spiciness as claimed and it was not savory enough.
One might feel that the sauce is too light, or too diluted.
3) Venison Steak- Flambe whiskey, served with assorted mushrooms - $32.90
I really liked the steak. It was slightly crispy on the out and tender on the inside.
Great contrast in texture.
The sauce carries a tinge of sour that made it unique and flavourful.
I couldn't get enough of the sauce!
The mushrooms were delicious too!
X felt that the venison steak does not possess the strong taste of beef.
So if you're not a fan of beef due to its taste, you can try this venison steak!
