Always worth it..

We were introduced to this French bistro by a friend in the industry whose office was located a short walking distance to Baguette. Ever since, we try to dine even if it's a cab ride from the city.

Ate here on a Thursday night, we didn't have a reservation and our reception was not really welcoming but once we were seated the service was outstanding. We had pan seared duck breast on a parsnip pure and braised belly of pork in an apple soup (sounds odd but absolutely delicious). Unfortunately the souffle of the night is no longer... More

My guest in the early stages of his career, upon my arrival exclaimed, "wow I had no idea this was here." Probably the first decent French restaurant we had in Brisbane I told him (not counting the former North Quay sited Scaramouche), and still a serious offering for the modern French bistro style. Bouillabaisse with its combination of fresh seafood... More

A number of people were paying their bill as we walked in and there were a few patrons still seated. We asked if we could get a table but were told that as we didn't have a reservation, the cook wanted to go... More

Outstanding dish was was the sautéed scallops with duck foie gras croquette. The flavours and textures were just right and we were left wishing for more of this dish. However the next 4 courses were... More

Based on other people's reviews, we booked this restaurant for our one and only night in Brisbane. Simple but sophisticated decor and a short menu hinted at the excellence to come. I had 'Milk Fed' lamb and my wife had duck. Both were superb, succulent meat and perfectly cooked vegetables. Friendly but unobtrusive service complemented the food. In short excellence.
