Description: Embassy @ 97 has lovely, friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere. There is a giant chalkboard with chalk and colouring pencils and colouring books available for the kids as well as magazines and newspapers for the rest of us. The food is good café food, ranging from eggs to focaccias. While there is no specific children's menu, the chef is happy to do smaller portions. There is no charge for baby chinos and they have a great everyday special of coffee with a freshly baked on premises muffin, for $5! Seating is bench-style and there are tables outside: both on the footpath and in a small courtyard, meaning t hat you can sit with a group. Also of note is that there is a tram-stop directly outside the door.

I was looking for a restaurant to book a work christmas function and happened upon the review from the unfortunate who was unable to use a groupon voucher. I often use groupon as a way of testing the quality of a restaurant and would be furious to experience what they did. Based on that, I will not be making the... More

Excellent food, as authentic as possible that far away from France. The service was also very good, European style. We loved it.

We were given a Groupon voucher by a friend for Christmas. After several attempts to make a reservation (since January 2104) at the restaurant, our requests were either completely ignored or the actual reservation was cancelled twice. We were told each time that the restaurant was not taking any reservations for customers with vouchers. In the last attempt, my partner... More

The food and atmosphere were very good. Prices were a bit on the high side, especially the wine, but good for a nice night out. Probably best to book ahead as there isn't much room.

Four of us went to this small cafe/restaurant for Sunday lunch and had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. The setting is very casual with tables inside and also in a small courtyard; we chose the courtyard which was cool and shady on a hot Melbourne afternoon. The menu is full of traditional french favourites. We chose four different entrees, each one... More
