A lovely little place for a special occasion

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.

Bouchon restuarant is a small, casual but intimate place. The dinner on NYE was a set menu which we thoroughly enjoyed. From a small tasting plate through to the wonderful Wagu beef in a rich red wine sauce & a deliciously refreshing layered citrus dessert, the meal was great. They also spaced it over a few hours so we finished... More

When we arrived we were greeted with a warm smile and asked if we wanted tap water or sparkling water. We had the entree which was snails with garlic butter and bread. I had Wagyu Steak which was cooked perfectly. My wife had the roast pork with a devious salad. And for desert we had Creme Brûlée and it just... More

We dropped in for a Christmas lunch, a good way to escape the office if only for a short while. It's not our first visit and it won't be our last. Our waitress was knowledgeable and enhanced the experience. The food was excellent as was the atmosphere. We managed to stay longer then anticipated as we decided to add more... More

Had the escargot as a starter and it was excellent. The lamb main was quite good too but I have had better. Nice wine list to choose from and the server was excellent.

This is a great place for a laid back, lingering dinner with excellent food, service and wine. Perhaps I found the wines a little expensive if you wanted to really go the full French road and had to go Aussie, but, we have the best wines anyway!

My daughter and I discovered Bouchon last year when visiting for the Grace Kelly exhibition; this year it was my husband and I travelling and we actually stayed an extra night just to go to Bouchon. We were the only two customers for some hours, but gradually it filled to about one third full - an empty restaurant is a... More
