Had lunch there after reading the very positive reviews My companion has the barramundi which she said was nice apart from the over abundance of shoestring fries. I decided to try the Toulouse sausages while not quite understanding what a Toulouse sausage was. I was...More

We came for lunch on a friends recommendation. You can choose from the breakfast options and the lunch menu after 11.30am so there is plenty of choice. Everything we ordered was superb, as good as anything served up in a Paris bistro. There is a...More

Who knew France was so close to Bondi! Once again the dinner has been magnificent and never disappoints. Can’t wait for breakfast tomorrow 😀

The steak was absolutely divine and cooked exactly as requested - medium rare. The Chicken Liver Parfait also highly recommended and all this topped off with a lovely Red and amazing French Table Service.

Authentic french cafe just off the main strip at Coogee. Great coffee and the croquet monsieur was to die for!!! Tables outside or quaint french bistro style inside. Service exceptional. Will be back to try their dinner menu!

This little cafe has a lovely atmosphere with lots of holiday makers popping in before they hit the beach for the day. We enjoyed our authentic French breakfasts and I enjoyed my coffee, but my partner ordered two macchiatos and each time they got the...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

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
