Amazing food

OMG the food is amazing!!! It is s very charming restaurant, makes you almost feel like you're in France. Our water was outstanding with a wicked sense of humour. I believe we had almost everything on the menu. And everything was superb. Will definitely be back, hopefully soon

No problems with our visit with food or service, overall a very pleasant experience. I don't like the setup of the tables, so close that the staff have to drag a table away for those sitting against the wall to get to or from their seat. This is inexcusable and a real let down for a restaurant that is trying... More

I came to Montrachet for the first time without high hopes, but to see how the place is in terms of service and food quality. It is a pleasant place for family reunions or friends to catch up, although I dislike the snobbish atmosphere accentuated by the leather menu, which makes me uncomfortable. Seats were comfortable. The waitress was attending,... More

Venison very poorly cooked. Well done and dry. Escargot very average and underseasoned. Decor is nice. Wine list is prohibitively expensive for what it is. Very disappointing. Avoid.

I had the pleasure of dining at Montrachet a few years ago with my family, and the experience was amazing - fantastic, delicious food, and great service. So I have been waiting for a chance to go back! New owners bought Montrachet earlier this year as we found out when we got there, and the night left me wishing that... More

everything about this restaurant gives you the French experience from the ambience to the food. It is only small but the fact it is not overcrowded makes you feel special. Great for special occasions and easy parking

Old building, with quaint decor, in French style (?). Friendly greeting and good service. Best Bearnaise sauce ever, with delicious fillet steak. Whiting fish dish less exciting, Cauliflower soup also little disappointing (lacking flavour. Bland). Side dishes (i.e. beans, sized for two and wasted if only one wants side dish. (Adds to cost, would rather pay a bit more for... More

It was a perfect lunch for our CEO's birthday. Everyone (6) had great meals. Entrees were ideal starters. I had a crab dish which was extremely tasty, some had snails which they said where also excellent. For a main course I had the baked fish which was one of the best I have had, the flavours they had with it... More

The social media do not seem to have fully caught up with the fact that this landmark bistro has changed hands. Carol and Thierry Galichet have sold their little piece of France, but have no fear it remains in good hands, very good hands. Shannon Kellam, twice entrant to the coveted Bocuse d'Or international chefs' competition is the new proprietor... More

This is a classic French restaurant bursting with atmosphere, in the heart of Paddington. Magnificent traditional French cuisine as well as some more modern takes on it. My favorite French restaurant in Brisbane. Love it.
