Dine with class while treating yourself to a traditional gourmet pub meal
Many don't know of Bally's Bar and Cafe Ventura, situated right next to the Ballajura City Shopping Centre. My friend and I decided to go on a pub meal crawl on one quiet Monday afternoon and thought we had discovered a new gem, to learn that Bally's Bar had been a home to the locals for 9 years.
Considering it's age the tavern acquired a fresh and modern feel. Staff were friendly, tunes were pumping in the background and the locals seemed very relaxed at the end of the working day. What a great way the start the week. There's also an outdoor beer garden and restaurant area. Bally's is suitable for families, couples or friends anytime you desire some gourmet pub grub or a drink. The staff mentioned that the weekends are usually very busy and entertaining.
Tuesday - Quiz night and pizza and pasta for $16 Wednesday - Steak night, $15 rump or $20 sirloin Thursday - Parmigiana night $15 Friday and Saturday - Bally's presents their solo guitarist from 7pm - 11pm. On Saturday's the entertainment takes place in the restaurant. Sunday is Karaoke 6pm - 9pm
The meals were well presented, large in size and well priced. Choose from the garlic prawns, lasagne, pork belly, scotch fillet or the stuffed chook, which is chicken breast filled with camembert cheese, wrapped in prosciutto served on mash and finished with a champagne cream sauce, and there was so much more to choose from. The homemade beef and Guinness pie and the bangers and mash were considered to be light meals!
There were a range of interesting cocktails too and be sure to check out the monthly drink specials. The full menu can be viewed on the website .
Bally's Bar also invites you to their Cafe Ventura for a restaurant dining experience.
The setting was welcoming with flowers and mirrors contributing a home like touch. Keep this place in mind for you next function. The room can cater for 20 - 150 people and is suitable for all types of functions, wedding, standing cocktail party or a private dining room set up. Cafe Ventura was just as fresh and appealing as the Bar dining area. Bally's are willing and able to suit any function ideas you have and offer a wide food selection. Bally's Cafe Ventura is able to cater for set buffet, set menu or cocktail platters. The information pack for their functions can be accessed from their website.
Opening times 12pm - 9pm for Cafe and Bar is open until late.
