I’d have to say this Brisbane Restaurant is my favorite of all. Thierry Galichet is the owner and chef of this Paddington Restaurant. It is adorned with all sorts of Parisian art and French paraphernalia – it’s a classy restaurant with a lovely warm welcoming feeling. Thierry only opens Monday to Thursday, why? Because the place is that popular he... More

This French bistro is the real deal. The best French tucker this side of the equator. Don't resist your inclination to eat the brains. Or the best Steak and Frits and Salad. And don't resist the wine list .....Even if it's all in French Give in and enjoy. It's simply one of the joys of life.

Montrachet is my first choice for any celebration or special occasion. I have eaten here many times and never had a morsel that was less than exceptional. You will pay top dollar but it is worth every cent, and, because the portions are perfect, you will not waste a mouthful. The staff have been with Thierry Galichet for years, know... More

Put this restaurant on your go to list. The food is amazing and the service is impeccable. Mere words cannot express how delightful my meal was. If you are feeling adventurous, I can recommend the degustation menu.

Haven't been here for a while but have eaten here to celebrate family birthdays and our wedding anniversary. Fantastic service and even better food. Love the fact that the waiters are able to help with selections as their knowledge of the menu is first rate.

I have been very fortunate to dine in some fine establishments across the globe and this jewel in the centre of Brisbane rates amongst the best available. Fantastic staff ready, even eager, to attend your every need. Wonderful atmosphere made all the more enjoyable by the legend that is Thierry. Try a spot at the bar for your next meal... More

It's a small place so reserve or take pot luck and sit at the Bar and talk with your neighbour. Extensive wine list . Menu is small . Degustation looks to be value. Noisy but stylish. It's French.

Our choice of restaurant was chosen solely to impress guests from Western Australia who boast about the wonderful restaurants in Perth. The degustation menu was absolutely divine. Each course provided an insight into genuine French cuisine. Presentation was extraordinary and the food 'exceptionnel'. The staff were well versed in the origin of each course and provided friendly banter between courses.... More
