Intimate dining, French cuisine

A very small intimate place, ideal for couples celebrating a special occasion. Food is hearty although not as 'French' as you might imagine. The 'special' beef dish was poorly presented and did not compare with the delicious pork dish ordered from the menu. The desserts were 'everyday' and we... read more

Bouchon is a small restaurant with very limited menu. Your chosen dish may be unavailable. Escargots were great with lots of flavour, served in the traditional manner. Beef dish was full of flavour but unfortunately there was more fat than meat. Creme Brûlée was quite unusual , being mainly sugar with a thin smear of custard . The service was... More

Bouchon is a lovely restaurant with a small but genuinely french menu. It is surely the best place to try snails for the first time because they are absolutely delicious and the garlic butter just cries out for bread to dunk in it. The bread isn't usually offered, but it is happily provided if you ask. The current steak special... More

A farewell lunch turned into a beautiful memory. I just wish I could afford to eat there more often.

Bouchon has a limited menu, but everything on it is beautiful. Wonderful service, relaxed and a lovely restaurant for a special evening. Must have - crème brulee!!

My wife and I have eaten at this restaurant twice. Both times we had a delightful meal. The restaurant is small, so you might check first with a booking. We enjoyed the first meal so much that we bought a gift certificate as we left! The food was excellent; the service was excellent; and you of course you pay extra... More

Nice french influenced food in a small and intimate setting. A good place for a special occasion. The menu is small and based on local seasonal produce. You can choose to drink wines matched to your food. We really enjoyed our recent visit.

Traveling through Bendigo from Qld. Found this simple French restaurant in High Street. Delicious snails for entree & the melt in the mouth Lamb for main. Great French food with Australian ingredients. Excellent service too.... Don't miss this one !!

This restaurant understands hospitality. The French Provincial cuisine, focussing on local season produce is delicious and well executed! The Wine List is well constructed with an interesting selection of regional and imported wines. Thoroughly recommended.

This is a small restaurant specialising in interesting food. There is an emphasis on doing what you do well with only a short menu. Well cooked and tasty food. My only criticism is that the service can be slow. Interesting wine list with good French wine.
