A lovely bistro, ideally positioned at the Paris End of Collins Street, opposite the Regent, which was a lurid green because of ‘Wicked’. The decor and feel were perfect. The food was excellent. We shared a charcuterie board, where each pâté, terrine and cured meat was very good. Mains are all memorable and very French – beef cheek bourguignon and... More

Called in here, mid afternoon, to have a coffee and was amazed that such an elegant place existed in Collins Street. The staff were excellent and although it was past 3pm, we had coffee and cake and soaked up the atmosphere of this small but very well patronised restaurant. There were still diners completing lunch. It has great seating and... More

My partner and I had lunch at the Bistrot d'Orsay on the Tuesday following the June long weekend in 2014 and it goes down as one of the best meals that I have ever had. We are regular travellers to Melbourne, and had often promised ourselves that we should have a meal there, so during this trip, we made it... More

I had walked by Bistrot D'Orsay almost every week but had never gone in. Then one night I needed to get dinner before a performance at the Town Hall and I thought - I'll give it a go. It was a good decision. Fantastic service, a great atmosphere and deliciousness aplenty. I have been a couple of times now and... More

staying across the road at Westin Melb. Dinner time with colleagues. We all ordered mains. Food came quickly. Slow braised beef cheeks were hearty and satisfying. Price in low $30s. Colleagues had gnocchi and sea food stew. Enjoyed the Parisian atmosphere.

Small but good menu, and a solid wine list. Tables are very close together. Good service, very handy if staying at The Westin.

Understated decor is at odds with the classy menu and divine French food. Duck and creme brûlée highly recommended. Simply delicious!
