D"orsay has become a favourite to go to and though it's in a main location opposite the Regent Theatre it still has that hidden gem feeling. Staff are attentive great wines and food prices are reasonable five stars again thank you

restaurant was lovely, waitress very pleasant. Ordered the eye fillet steak with chunky potatoes. Chunky potatoes must have been precooked 24-36 hours before before frying for me today, tasted and smelt like old potato-so either too old to use, or not cooked well enough today....More

D’Orsay is very small and the tables are also small. The pre-theatre crowd can be very loud in the confined space. Once the show across the road at the Regent starts however and the numbers reduce, it is possible to enjoy the means of what...More

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

Bistrot d'Orsay has been situated in picturesque Collins Street for 20 years, in an area regarded as the ‘Paris End’. The interior is instantly evocative of the French capital with trompe l’oeil ceiling and a towering vintage French poster adorning the dining room. Dark wood paneling and soft lighting completes the picture. Lunch and dinner menus are provençal Mediterranean with French bistro classics such as bouillabaisse and crème brûlée all prepared with flair. Dishes such as seafood linguini and risotto complement the Mediterranean style. With a spectacular view of the ornate Regent Theatre directly opposite, Bistrot d’Orsay can lay claim to one of the best views of any restaurant in Melbourne. The bistro has a multi-award winning, extensive wine list with expertly chosen selections from the best international and Australian/NZ regions.
