About Claire's Gallery

Inspired by her time spent in Japan, Claire – the woman behind Claire’s gallery – brings together Japanese and Western influences to create a special dining experience, right on Balmain’s popular dining strip. With exposed brick walls and minimalist furniture, Claire’s Gallery provides a stylish backdrop for a catch up with friends over some brunch, lunch or dinner. Kick your day off with an Aussie favourite like eggs benedict or go Japanese with the miso katsu omelet chow down on a premium wagyu steak burger or go for a larger course like the sushi platter, Japanese curry, Mediterranean roast chicken and chorizo or honey halloumi with hazelnut, mixed leaves, roast chat potatoes and aioli. To guarantee a table at this Sydney favourite, making a reservation in advance is recommended.

I have been dining there since the restaurant first opened. It offers very pleasant and helpful staff, good food and good value The dishes are well presented. Their inability to offer coffee (basic to a restaurant surely) is a big drawback.

The lady host was warm and inviting. The food was great and more than enough. Definitely would visit here again! My only pick and it is very minor. It was a little cold outside, would have been perfect with heaters.

Attentive welcome and service. Staff showing pride in service. Delicious flavours in each dish. Beetroot / cauliflower salad with restaurants own dressing particularly recommended. A small misunderstanding in a choice from menu.
