Yay real food and really nice staff. A genuinely nice cafe with real french food and people. Small place, small menu, all good. Love the spatchcock and the creme brulee was awesome. Happy to return

Had a fantastic, romantic dinner for two. We took a great bottle of wine and really struggled to choose our dishes. There were so many dishes we fancied... We ended up settling on the three cheese soufflé and foie gras parfait for entrees and both...More

A small place with old fashioned french style cooking only slightly adapted to local produce,or so it seems. It is good without ever being adventurous in anyway. It is a good choice locally.

Wonderful ambience, good food lovingly prepared and presented, outstanding service. A substantial plank in Coogee's legitimate claim to suburban greatness.

I’m almost reluctant to write about this suburban gem of wholesome and delicious French cuisine in case I can’t get a table next time. (It’s small...) But I have to make sure as many people as possible sample this wonderful food at least once in...More

Very accessible by public transport, Coogee is the
smaller, friendlier, more intimate version of Bondi
Beach. Coogee is the only beach in the Eastern suburbs
that does not have big waves, making it an excellent
family beach. The Coogee Bay Hotel, located right
across the beach, has one of the biggest beer gardens
in Australia and plenty of entertainment every night
of the week. Be on the lookout for celebrity
