Having agreed to meet with friends for dinner on Racecourse Road, my husband and I walked the restaurant precinct to establish what restaurant would work best. Baguette Bistro caught our eye as it wasn't too busy and looked reasonably ambient however the big seller was the chalkboard signage advertising $48 for a two course meal. Wonderful. Sounded like a bit... More

We went for a romantic dinner on a Friday evening. The atmosphere was nice and quite, and we got the choice of a few tables. Both my partner and I ordered red meat. Him - the steak and me the lamb. Both of us received snide comments from the waiter when we aked for them to be cooked medium, and... More

I have never seen escargots served with Fettucine - not the authentic French escargot dish we were expecting and did not present well. Don't change the traditional dishes - they are classic and well loved. Pork Terrine had no texture and very small serving - not the best. Fish was boring and beef cheeks too rich for our liking. Very... More

French born Brisbane resident, I'm always trying to find foods that I miss from the mother land. If you want to experience true French cuisine, this is probably one of the only rare places in Brisbane where you will find authentic food from the Gallic land. It can be a bit pricy but it's worth it. The waiting stuff are... More

Had the lunch special ($30.00) here last week and it was a pleasant surprise. On offer was an entree and main or main & sweet. We opted for the former. I had the Mushroom Voluvant and a Minute Steak while my wife had the same entree followed by the Drunken Chicken. The Voluvant was light and fluffy and the Mushroom... More

I visited Baguette Restaurant in Ascot. I was delighted to find they had a $30 lunch special. I had the Mushroom Vol-au-vent followed by the Minute Steak and with the French fries and a salad. I had the creme brulee off the standard menu. I thoroughly enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Creme Brulee is one of my favourites and... More

We ordered a degustation which included 6 courses and the matching wines and we were very please with the food selection (variety) and the quality. From the six dishes there were 4 that were my favorites, I can't decide which was better. This is a restaurant to go back. However next time I would order my own wine, it was... More
