Night out after Art Month opening

Firstly, Exceptional service. Top notch. Second. The food. I ate roast partridge. Sublime, exquisite. The boy... read more

The title basically explains it all because this restaurant has it all. Our meals were perfectly portioned and timed. Every single course was a pleasure to look at, and more importantly, savour.

Tried this on a recent visit to Sydney, which coincided with my wife's birthday. Though the restaurant is closed Monday and Tuesday, they replied during off-hours to my email request for a table, and were very accommodating in setting up some surprises for my wife when we arrived. Both the food and service were top notch. We tried the oysters,... More

A wonderful lunch with friends, all with a french connection,so we were all keen to try the french food . Despite my worries about being able to park anywhere near this restaurant, I managed to get a park right out the front and others, not far down the road..Good Start.. The young gentleman that looked after us was just lovely,... More

After reading reviews on this restaurant, I decided to take a punt for Valentines day. The staff responded quickly to my reservation message and very open to questions. I was a bit worried about the rain as our table was outside under umbrellas but it cleared just before we ate. It may be worth keeping your options open or checking... More

We can't imagine to eat a bouillabaisse in Sydney! It is done...it was good, and French taste. The beef and our other choices was great also. We received also good advice from the French waiter, for our stay in Sydney.

Perfect dinner at this absolutely charming bistro just off Taylor Square. Highlights were a stunning appetizer of gazpacho with prawns, avocado and mustard ice cream, followed by an authentic bouillabaisse with snapper, fennel and saffron potatoes. Would return in an instant.

Cute little bistro in Surrey Hills. Small menu but excellent food. The duck confit was moist and delicious and the boullabaise everything you would wish for. Cute courtyard. Staff very professional and friendly. The soufflé to die for. Prices reasonable

We have been to Le Pelican many times over the years and will keep coming back. This is one of those places that get all elements right. The food is always good, the staff great and the atmosphere makes you want to stay a bit longer. Make sure you try the pork & duck foie gras pate with a good... More
