Very French, ey tres tres bon!

It was our second visit here and it wasn't just because it sits just around the corner from our frequently used hotel. Firstly the service is what you would expect in a good Parisian restaurant and naturally all the staff are French, adding to the ambience and class.The food was for me perfect... read more

Let's face it, Claires kitchen is not a cheap eating out experience. But it's worth every cent. Beautiful setting, excellent service and the food is delicious. Serves are generous for fine dining. There are Gluten free options and a great drinks list at reasonable prices.

It was a catchup dinner with Sydney friends, and I was at the Intercontinental. So getting there was a breeze, on almost any bus from the Philip St stop by the hotel. And Claires is just across the road from the Oxford St bus stop (and easy return trip too) The many reviews below say what an excellent foodie place... More

Everything about this restaurant is excellent. You are greeted by gorgeous waiters and waitresses who are polite and friendly and know what they're doing. The atmosphere is favourable to a nice tête-à-tête with your loved one. It is cozy, warm and funky all at once. The cocktails are excellent and the barmaid makes sure you get exactly what you want.... More

I've been walking past Claire's Kitchen et Salon since it opened a few years ago. My partner and I finally went last night for a birthday dinner. It was absolutely amazing. And I mean amazing - service, food, wine, room, ambience. The kind of service that is invisible, where suddenly your wine is full and you didn't see them pour... More

This visit introduced a friend to Claires kitchen, and was welcomed back like a old friend. Wonderful service and the food as usual was excellent - the cheese soufflé is a must !!! Another great food experience.

The dinner here was unbelievably good - fantastic food, service, decor, ambience AND value for money! We shared the Chateaubriand - a huge serving of delicious beef that melted in the mouth. Excellent French wine was available not just by the glass or bottle but conveniently by the 1/3 or 2/3 of a bottle if you preferred. We finished the... More

Friend had a windfall and took 14 of us to Claire's on a Wednesday night. Entrees around $20, Mains around $30-35 and desserts - who cares the cost, as they were sumptious in the extreme. Wine flowed freely (cheap bottles were around the $35 mark) and everyone without exeption enjoyed their meal. Decor is relaxing, cooldn't fault the Service ,... More

After walking past this restaurant many times, my wife and I finally dined here one evening. And wow - were we mildly surprised! The atmosphere is elegant, to say the least. The food is quintessentially French as were the waiters. The portion sizes were very generous (luckily we shared a couple dishes instead of having a 3 course meal each)... More
