Pretty good.

Pretty good French style restaurant. Was not a fan of the entrée and main I had, but LOVED dessert (probably the best dessert I have ever had), but it seems they no longer have it on the menu. I did try the snails as well, which was a pleasant experience. Over all it was average to me.

We recently dined at La Parisien for a very special occasion (family reunion). We had experienced excellent food and service two years ago, hence booking again; however, on this occasion the service was terrible and the food very poor in quality. The restaurant was almost empty with two wait staff on hand, however we had to constantly signal to be... More

A favourite restaurant from over 25 years ago. Visited last weekend and the food is just as good as it was all those years ago. Jean Paul runs a very personalised restaurant. Great food and great service. Only criticism, and not that it bothered us, was it was a bit slow - the restaurant was very full at the time.

I have now been twice for dinner and even though I really like the decor, location and ambiance I will not go again. I was disappointed the first time I went 18 months ago and the same thing happened again. The food is good but nothing exceptional. I have had better and feel it is overpriced. My friends and I...

Le Parisien certainly has one of the best outlooks for a restaurant. The night we dined was a special wedding anniversary for us and we did enjoy ourselves. The food was very nice without being particularly exceptional for the price. Most of the staff were very helpful and friendly but when we went to order from the menu we were... More

This restaurant is a Geelong institution.On a recent business visit in the private room I suspect a student as waiter struggled to deliver on the restaurant promise.The food was excellent as one would expect at the price but the inexperienced service quite detracted. Hopefully the owner is not trying to save money??Will try again but now with a question mark??

The only criticism is that we dined at Parisien during the day. Noise from a nearby sight-seeing helicopter always ruins the peace of eating at the waterfront.

My husband and I visited Le Parisien in Geelong again yesterday and received exceptional service. Hayley who looked after us was very polite and went out of her way to cater for my allergies. With dairy and fructose allergies it is very hard to enjoy going out for a meal, but Hayley and the wonderful chef on duty looked after... More
