The tables are just too small and too close together. While the Goat's Cheese Souffle was good the scallops were drowned by a strong and unpleasant "chorizo vinaigrette". The risotto was pleasant but ordinary and the shoulder of lamb did not bring the expected flavour. A disappointing experience.

This tiny bistro has a great vibe - warm and inviting, a bit of bustle, but we could still be tucked away in a corner for a romantic dinner. Wait-staff were helpful and friendly, and as we had a tight deadline (seeing a show that night), they made sure we were served and happy with plenty of time. The dishes... More

Great fresh, delicious French food, and good service. Generous portions. We ate everything, if only we could have licked the plates. We noticed as we left, that no one had left any food on their plates. Good ambience, and friendly efficient staff. We will return again for a second time in a week.

The food was very satisfying and the service was efficient which was a relieft as we were pre theatre diners. We both felt very satisfied as we do when enjoying such good fare. Entrees of seafood soup - very flavoursome & Goats cheese and... More

Stopped in here for lunch. Had been waiting to do so all week. I had the olives as a starter, nice bread and a marvelous bordeaux. The Beef Bourguignon melted in my mouth. It was very filling so I had no room for dessert which was a bit of a disappointment to me as I am sure they are delicious.... More

My wife and I frequent Melbourne for my a professional conferences and almost every time, on one of the days down there, we end up at this restaurant! It's no surprise. The staff are happy to see us and vice versa. It has been one of our many favourites in Melbourne city. The duck is me and the fish is... More

Been coming to Bistro D'Orsay for 10 years+. They have educated and efficient waiters, a quality wine list and a menu that's not massively expansive but very good and each dish is quality. The pate is amazing & if they're doing bouillabaisse get stuck in!

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
