Went there for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. French onion soup (of course being Melbourne Winter) fresh bread sticks with excellent butter followed up with an omelette that was just excellent. I have also had the spicy raw steak with an egg in it that...More

This is our "go to" French restaurant in Melbourne - we visit every time we come to Melbourne. Would you believe we discovered this place because it features in a crime series written by a Melbourne crime writer - we read an interview where he...More

This is a cosy friendly French restaurant that is simply the best. You are transformed into a wonderful restaurant in regional France. The food is delicious and the whole experience memorable. We love it and will be making the pilgrimage there later in the year

In my previous review, we spoke rather critically of "hidden charges". We are so glad to see that these have been removed and we now have returned as regulars to our favourite restaurant. We love all the wonderful French food, the wine list is impossible...More

Love having lunch or dinner at our favourite French institution in South Yarra. Started with Rabbit rillette then the awesome grilled sardines. We shared a wonderful pepper steak that was superb with a side of frites (magnifique) and peas with bacon lardones. Service was perfect,...More
