A taste of France.

Coffee is consistently good and a good selection of food on offer for the peckish through to the famished. Kids catered for and welcomed with their own area and a couple of good clean bathroom. Parking can be an issue but not a problem if you are prepared to walk 300m.

We came here for lunch, as it was recommended. I had the soup of the day and a fondant dessert - really really good. It is a little pricey, but the food is delicious and in my opinion, worth it. Seems to be quite a popular little place :) Will have to come back sometime!

You can always count on this place to treat you to something special. The desserts are stunning... We've worked our way through most of them. Today we had an almond croissant and ze French breakfast... Excellent value and very fresh. Coffees here are also very good. It's a good place to take kids as there is an area with books... More

Lovely place with great service, including lots of genuine French accents. The cabinet food is incredibly good and the menu items are not bad either. Coffee is pretty good as well. Expect to spend a bit when you come here, but we usually find the premium well worth it. *Tip* If you're with someone, get them to grab a table... More

Lovely little café amongst light businesses with super coffee and the regular eats plus some nice French breads pastries. Wish we could visit more often! Nicely set up with a nice group of French speaking staff that were most attentive and pleasant

This French themed eatery is worth locating in Kaiwharawhara, Wellington. There is a bus stop immediately outside but it's a bit of a walk from the city, although that's not a bad thing as my lunch time meal was calorie laden ++.The casual dining area was full but tables turned over quickly. You order at the deli with a choice... More

Had brunch at La Cloche this weekend and was very surprised at how bad the food was. The rosti with fried egg was dreadful - an egg sized lump of gluey potato with a slice of tomato and no obvious cheese flavour with a fried egg on top, a small salad garnish and three thin slices of baguette. Those eating... More

I visited La Cloche last Sunday. Although I am not a great fan of some seafood I decided to try their Seafood Casserole. I was pleasantly surprised. I don't care much for mussels but all the other seafood was great. The sauce was not heavy and the pasta noodles were not sticky. Overall a good dish. The only thing I... More

There is a wide selection of French pastries and small cakes to choose from and some delicious drinks. The food, drink and service was excellent but there was not much room between tables.
