A lover of what Guillaume has achieved before but this experience was void of his usual finesse. Waiters indifferent, wrong meals served to not just our table but the diners opposite. Had to chase for extra wine and cutlery wasn't replaced after entree and main served and they walked away. Food average and the 40 dollar barramundi watery and limp.... More

There are always bumps in the road and a smart business owner / manager takes the opportunity to take a breath and fix it. We left without ordering as it appears to be have been too much trouble to really care. The lesson is when it goes wrong you have the chance to write the story. In this case the... More

We were in Melbourne for the weekend and wanted a romantic dinner together. We found Bistro Guillaume, which looked really cute, so we booked us in for the Saturday at 9pm, as that was the only time left available. The restaurant was about half full when we got there and there were lots of waiters and waitresses around. Yet, we... More

Came here with a group of friends for a birthday dinner, most at the table were unhappy with their food as the prices were through the roof for what they got. I however had the steak bearnaise and was very happy with that! I just wanted to comment on the service of our waiter Anthony, he was great! He even... More

Upon arriving we were taken to our seat by a very pleasant french waitress . The menu is typically french and didn't disappoint .. I had the twice baked roquefort sooufle , and then followed by a delicious Salade Nicoise ... Both dishes were exceptional and I cant wait to sample more .. My partner was also impressed by his...

Sometimes my wife and I eat in places where the food is great but the service is lousy or vice versa. This place had great service and great food. I had the minute steak cooked to perfection. My wife had the crab salad. The other couple dining with us had the chicken and a tuna salad. All of us were... More

We visited Bistro Guillaume for dinner which was a delightful experience. The restaurant decor is very Parisian with an outdoor terrace , zinc topped bar , hanging white petticoat lampshades , & traditional timber panelling painted in the Guillaume colour of green. We ordered the French onion soup for entree which was delicious. For mains we ordered the confit of... More

My boyfriend booked a table for the New Year Eve celebration as a special surprise for me...but unfortunately we both were surprised in a bad way. At $600 for dinner you expect something special in NYE, don't you? The food was ok but nothing special to justify the price. The service was appalling, poorly coordinated and managed. Waitresses & waiters... More

As a couple we went Friday lunch time. I took advantage of their 2 courses for $55.00 deal. Bread and water came out promptly whilst the waiter explained the menu and specials. I ordered the pork for main and the crème brulee for dessert. The food was delicious and so yummy. The Brulee was the best I have ever had.... More

At first I just couldn't make a decision as the menu is all tempting! I was convinced that I must try the escargot and so I did! Simply amazing. Better then previous experiences. The steak was cooked to perfection and delicious. The deserts my friends chose looked amazing and apparently tasted the same way. The wine list inviting!! Staff attentive.... More

Ideally located next to Nobu, Bistro Guillaume features an extensive outdoor terrace, a hallmark of the world's best bistros, a zinc-topped bar, a private room and a spacious, welcoming dining area.
