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.

Steak frites - yummy

Stumbled across this place exploring Fitzroy. Quaint bistro-style french restaurant. Had the ribeye with bone in and it was delicious - generous portion and well cooked. The rest of the food also looked great!

Had dinner here last week with my partner, the service and food are spectacular. I had the escargots (snails) which were served in a delicious sauce, the Duck a l’orange was do tender it melted in my mouth. The waiter was attentive and friendly and the view from the front of the window over Melbourne from Williamstown was priceless. Will... More

Bought a groupon for 3 course meal and bottle of wine, we arrived early and were brought upstairs to what looked like someone's living room with dinning tables. We ordered French onion soup, beef Wellington, mussels and shared desserts. The soup was cold and did not taste like French onion soup at all but more like a stew with soggy... More

Beware, we bought a dinner meal for 4 from Groupon but was told that that we couldn't change the wine to soft drinks and the dessert sample was the same for 2 as it is for 4! Very disappointed and will never go back there again. One of the worst deals as the price for 4 is just double that... More

We purchased an $89 deal voucher and we were looking forward to some traditional French food, which we did in fact receive. For starters, we had snails and pate and for main course, Duck a la Orange and a Rib Eye steak. Dessert was a lemon merangue pie and a crème brulee. The Duck and the Pate were very good... More
