My wife and I went here for a little late supper and were pleasantly surprised. The food as quite good and worth the price. We did have good service though not just one server waits on you so it can be a bit challenging to get the bill at the end. Would return again.

Firstly, the restaurant layout allows for an intimate meal as well as the more animated larger parties. On my recent visit I was part of a more animated, ravenous party that left the venue more than satisfied. The service is brisk and friendly - if you engage with the staff they are very open and hospitable. The snails are superbly... More

As a Groupon deal, the servings were very decent. I got the seafood soup (entree), beef tenderloin (main) and sticky date pudding (dessert) with mashed potato and garlic bread for sides. As for wine, I got the savignon blanc. The soup was great. It had salmon, prawns, mussels... The taste wasn't overwhelming at all and the salmon was perfect. The... More

A little to expensive, service was just ok. Nice and clean but all waiters were a little snobbish. Food was ok. Desert was real good.

Will need to go back to try the escargot. I had the veal for a main and that was delightful, however there was so much....one of the rare... More

We have been past this restaurant several times in the past while staying in Sydney, so we decided this time to actually go in and have dinner one night. The menu is pretty limited, but has a nice selection of styles to make it interesting. It is billed as a French restaurant, but I would say it is more French... More

We came here on a Sunday night with my hubby and 2 young kids. Its a fancy, fine dining restaurant. Food was average actually.. Nothing that really wowed us. We had the 3 course meal. (Snails and calamari for entree; beef tenders & salmon for mains; kahlua infused chocolate mouse & belgian chocolate gateau for dessert.) Service was great though.

From the time we walked in the door everything was lovely, the waiter was attentive the food was magnificent and surprisingly the wine was not so over priced as other restaurants in the area. The snails were amazing, can't wait t go again. Dinner cost is $60 for 3 coarses very reasonable. Yum Yum !!!
