Babae At Hotel Vera

An ever-changing seasonal menu developed with a creative approach to place, produce, flavour and technique which celebrates contemporary Australian Cuisine.

Offering an intimate fine dining experience with only 26 seats, Babae’s menu champions the growers and producers from around the region, including an abundance from our garden.

Tim Foster is the Culinary Director and Executive Chef and he co-owned the award-winning Kyneton restaurant Source Dining, which held a chefs hat for nine consecutive years in The Age’s Good Food Guide. More recently he has owned and run one of Victoria’s top hotels, The Gold Mines Hotel in Bendigo.

Babae places a strong emphasis on the provenance of the food they serve. It is all about the origin and sustainable source of the produce. The menu is very much crafted in partnership with the farmers, breeders, and providores from across the Goldfields region and further afield.

They embrace the best of what’s in season from both local producers and their kitchen farm’s garden. With this seasonality they create menus with a keen eye on the approaching season’s harvest, working hand-in-glove with producers.

Babae offers a seasonally inspired degustation menu to all guests, a four course lunch on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and a seven course dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Babae is located at Hotel Vera Ballarat “Victoria’s hottest new hotel”, The Australian.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
