Great spot for lunch and dinner; it is nice to sit in their courtyard on a sunny day though. Food is great, they have some lighter mediterranean style dishes too that work well at lunch. Last visit's fish dish was let down by a slightly salty potato mille-feuille. Service is very friendly though.

Went to this establishment at 8.15pm and was told the kitchen had closed. So went on the website and saw that the kitchen closed at 8.30pm not 8.15pm. Extremely disappointing and the host at the front of house was very rude about it. Shame because it looks like a lovely place with a good menu. But because of the service... More

A really lovely place with an atmosphere that takes you to France. The Bouillabaisse was magnificent - broth was amazing. The 2 or 3 course pricing is really reasonable and it is BYO which is excellent!

We visited this restaurant on the way home and thought lets try it. Upon being seated, we were asked if we would like some water, 15 minutes passed and we were asked again. I ordered the Lamb Rack, when it came out it was cold and hadn't been cooked properly. My partner ordered the Risotto and was horrified, we both... More

This restaurant was a traditional french offering, with an unforgettable outdoor garden experience, and a very sweet old brown dog who slowly roamed around and greeted everyone. The steak was premium, and the wine pairing recommendation was much appreciated. Great value - and we will certainly return if we ever visit the area again.

It was highly recommended by my French friends... BUT ... I reckon they may have forgotten what a good French restaurant is. Food okay. Menu limited (very). Poor choices. Price is okay. Well located in a busy area of Sydney with lots of young(ish) clientele. Service slow. Got the wrong bill (glad I checked). The courtyard is nice (if you... More
