We stumbled across this restaurant some years ago and quite by accident, but have been back many times. It is expensive, no doubt, but the food is fine. French with a delightful Scandinavian accent. Great wine list. An added attraction is the quiet ambience of the place and for us it is within easy walking distance. Ulla and John are... More

Small, intimate, calm, peaceful, relaxing, romantic, inviting, delicious, warm. These are some of the words I would use to describe this excellent little bistro. The prices are certainly not cheap but for a special occasion it was fantastic. It's very small (I think I counted 24 seats) and only 1 chef and 1 waitress but it was a beautiful meal.... More

I've been twice now and can thoroughly recommend it. The food, French with a Scandinavian twist is exceptional. These guys certainly know their way around delicious duck (over 20,000 cooked thus far apparently)! The menu normally contains at least four duck dishes and from what I can tell they're all very good. They have a constantly changing "wine wall" at... More

Have had dinner here with my partner twice now. We don't go to many 'fancy' restaurants but mon ami has been wonderful both times. I had the duck and my partner had the steak, very very yummy although portions were rather on the small side so I was still a bit peckish when we left, even with an entree. Will... More

This place really is mini - just 4 or 5 tables, and it's run by a two-man team. The decor is French brasserie(ish), and still cosy and comfortable. Food: the starter and main course I had were both impeccable and really original: a Gruyere souffle with soaked raisins, apples and walnuts was a unique combination of sweet, salty and bitter....

Mon Ami is a very, very small restaurant, interestingly decorated with good service and good entrees and mains. The restaurant is all about duck, which I don’t eat, but the other entrees and mains we ordered were tasty but small portions. They have a selection of wines which you can choose yourself from their wine rack. We went with a... More

Intimate. Inventive. Delicious. Romantic. Impeccable. Unbeatable. 17,834 ducks and counting! I can't recommend this restaurant strenuously enough! Just do yourself a favour and go...they have a fab pinot & duck Sunday Session for $29. DO IT!
