Nice little French bistro and creperie. The confit was very good, if a little more orangey than we are used to and the tart tatin not bad at all. Wines slightly on the pricey side but mostly French. Good service with a smile.

Because of my fast social datelines I sadly only ate breakfast here. My breakfast was lovely. First day was Eggs Benedict with well made coffee and the second day was a perfectly cooked Omelette. A lovely young lady served me with a smile and service was quick and professional. I have kept their Business Card to remind me that next... More

I had escargots and a goat cheese salad and my husband had rabbit ravioli. All beautifully prepared. Our Friends had onion soup, coq au vin, and a steak. The only one not raving was the steak eater but she was so tired all she wanted was her bed! We just flew in from the states and stumbled on this restaurant.

Came for dinner with friends, limited menu, old fashioned cooking; vegetables over cooked. Had goats cheese salad to start ($14.50) which was pretty gross - big chunks on Feta spread on top of bread. Scotch Fillet ($25.50) for mains. They have a number of French wines, reasonable prices but not top shelf. I won't be hurrying back!

I arrived without a booking on Sunday lunch as was pleasantly greeted. The menu order was taken promptly. The pate for a starter was very good. For a main course I had the rump steak, this was one of the best in Auckland, though the mushroom sauce was a bit too salty. The potatoes were excellent. To finish I had... More

We were there for a birthday celebration & we were not disappointed; the food was very French & absolutely delicious. We look forward to returning sometime soon Tip..... drop off your guests at the door & then park in the Civic Car Park, it's only a short walk up Queen Street from there.

Nice authentic French bistro feel to this restaurant. Good list of French wines, aperitifs and digestifs. I think I made the wrong menu choice as I had the duck in an orange sauce - a dish I usually love, but I found it to be overly sweet here - so much so that I couldn't face a dessert! I think...

My husband and I found this lovely cafe by accident and what a find! We go to France every year and love the cuisine. We were amazed to find our favourite dish Tartiflette on the menu and it was very good. It was lovely to be able to speak a little French to the helpful staff and an unexpected surprise.

A fabulous night out. We could not fault any of the courses. Our son who is a bit fussy was tempted to try different foods and really enjoyed it - especially the pate (he still wouldn't eat the carrots though!). A great restaurant choice at this end of Queen Street. Will look to go again next time we are in... More
