This is a superb authentic little French restaurant nestled in Havelock St Coogee. The service is swift, efficient, very friendly and charming. The food is EXQUISITE and comes in decent portions - the pate is mouth-wateringly silky smooth and there is plenty of it with...More

I knew this cafe had some pretty good reviews, which is why I booked a table for ten. I was a little sceptical as it is only a small establishment. What they produced in, both, service and product was exceptional. The service is very good,...More

Friends told us that this was good French cuisine and they were right. Two sittings on a Saturday night; we had 6-8pm. Service enabled a three course meal in that time. BYO for $10 a bottle and good selection of drinks available. Seafood soufflé, mussels...More

Popped in for brunch after a walk in Coogee based on TA reviews and was not disappointed. Lovely, veggie friendly menu, attentive service and a fantastic croque madame. Worth the short walk for something a bit different then the standard brunch fare.

Visited Sydney to see friends and they took me to this cafe. I am a pretty plain eater so I thought this would be wasted on me but it was lovely fresh and delicious. Pretty expensive but I guess that is everywhere in Sydney.

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

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
