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.

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!

Bought a Deals voucher for this restaurant as my partner had never been to a French restaurant. The food was fabulous and the service professional but fun and friendly too. The French onion soup was delicious and the Duck a l'orange delightful. I enjoyed my dessert of crepes suzette but had food envy when I saw my partners Cafe Gourmand,... More

What an enjoyable experience! True french dining outside of France. We purchased a scoopon and that was terrific value but full price would still be worth the visit. Four of us went and not one complaint - that doesn't happen very often.

I never expected this small restaurant in Fitzroy St. St Kilda to be so good. I purchased a Cudo deal for a 3 course meal including a bottle of wine, it was fantastic value considering the meal we received. It is situated in the front of the old French Embassy (hence the name) and is a cosy place to eat... More

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.
