Amazing dinner!

Based on our love of French bistro cuisine and a high rating in Trip Advisor we booked a table recently for dinner. The room was charming with a muraled ceiling, the tables for two though are quite tiny. The onion tart was one of the best things I've ever eaten! The service and the main courses... read more

Excellent food. Wait staff were very attentive and friendly. Staff were very busy but did not let that prevent them from offering a very high standard service.

Went for dinner here with my wife on a Friday night and had a great dinner. Food was great (recommend the steak and bouillabaisse), and service was exceptional. Will definitely be back.

Bistro Dorsay offers small plates as well as full dinners. We like that option. We dined on scallops and chicken. Indoor and outdoor dining is available.

Whether for lunch or dinner, Bistro D'Orsay is consistently of a high standard. Tables are set close together in typical Parisian bistro style, but to me that just adds to the atmosphere. We went this week before a show, and the wait staff were all relaxed & friendly but very efficient, offering good advice on wine selection and ensuring we... More

We had a table of six for an earliesh dinner. The food was excellent all round. It matched by an eclectic wine list with something for every diner. The hardworking staff were attentive and pleasant. The only quibbles were with the noise and the space. However, these were only minor - we will definitely return!

We travelled to Melbourne to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary and chose Bistrot d'Orsay for THE night for a special touch of French ambience. The décor is definitely reminiscent of Paris and was aided by the presence of a French family seated beside us as well as a delightful waitress from Avignon serving us! The service and attention to detail... More
