Very good meal. My risotto was prepared nicely and my husband's meal was quite flavorful also. Our waiter's wine suggestions were excellent, and it was obvious that he had listened to our preferences in wine. Then came dessert --- We had decided to share dessert and I found myself taking tiny bites just to savor the flavor for as long... More

Small French restaurant in Collins Street. Tables were packed in tightly, but great atmosphere/ambience. Wine list was good, food was great. My husband loved his slowed cooked lamb shoulder and I enjoyed my salmon on quinoa salad with beetroot. Service was a little slow on the night as they were extremely busy, but staff were friendly and working hard and... More

Definitely has the feel of a French bistro, with frescos and fine food. Bouillabaisse entree was generous and delicious, although the calamari was a little pedestrian. The salmon was very well cooked and the prawn bisque excellent. Our French red was a delight and our French waitress very sweet. Overall, really enjoyed the experience

I go here once every 1 or 2 months - the food is fabulous, service excellent and it has a sensational steak! I've been here with lots of different friends and they also love it - can't work out why it's not on lists of Melbourne's must-eat-at restaurants that cost WAY more like Movida, Vue, Cumulus, etc (possibly it's not...

I visited on a Friday evening, for my 28th birthday dinner with my partner. I had made reservations prior, and was greeted by the friendly French waiter at the door..we were early but they sat us down very quickly. We had the scallops for entrée (juicy succulent scallops well complemented with the pea and bacon pieces), and the beef cheek... More

This place never lets us down. The food is always beautiful, as is the service. If you are going to the Regent Theatre, it is the perfect place to go before hand. Really great quality food.

We arrived at 9pm on a Friday night without a booking. The staff were accommodating friendly and very efficient. The atmosphere was warm cosy and inviting. The walls and roof are covered in murals and this enhanced our experience. We felt like we had stepped off the streets of Paris. We had boulibassie and squid for entree and eye fillet... More

Visited with two work colleagues for an early dinner and had an excellent meal! The highlight for me was the beef cheek I had for main course, fantastic taste and lovely smooth mash. The scallop starter was also excellent! Nice spot but could do with keeping the door closed on a cool evening!

Wonderful French cuisine in the heart of the city. Love the ambience and the professionalism of the waitresses. The duck pate was delicious as was the main course of confit duck on a bed of spinach, lentils and roasted vegetables. Viva La France. Unfortunately no time for desert, but will be back again.
