A true piece of France in Brisbane

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.

Excellent as always, haven't been for a while and as there has been a change of ownership we decided to give it a test. Past with flying colours the food the service the ambience all good. The only complaint was the brains are no longer on the menu but the waiter said he had a lot of comments about this... More

Try to book a table rather than sit at the bar - particularly if there are more than two of you as conversation becomes tricky. Not convinced the high prices are warranted - although the Steak was excellent at just just under $50, quite pricey - but served with overcooked chips? I have eaten steak and chips in France and...

My friends and I were interested to try out Montrachet's after it had changed hands. We went on a Friday night for the Degustation dinner. The 5 course meal was delicious and slightly adventurous but typically French in a modern take on it. We had wines to match which made it easier and cost efficient. Staff were terrific. Would go...

Highly recommend Montrachet for the tasting menu & atmosphere. It's convivial & the owners are out & about talking to customers and making them feel welcome. All in all a very nice dining experience. We tried C'est Bon in Woolloongabba & Boucher in Graceville as well. C'est Bon was good but is not on par with Montrachet. I would avoid... More

It is not often that my wife and I have all 3 courses, they were all awesome. If you find a better dish anywhere than the crab soufflé entree please let me know it was fantastic.
