Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff. Delicious food and wine and yummy bread basket! We weren't very adventurous going for onion soup and steak with dauphinoise potatoes but both were beautifully cooked and just what we wanted. Great buzzy location too. Recommend.

Good food cooked simply but with a little imagination. Service was good. Coffee was great. Can't comment about dessert as we didn't have one.

One of those small busy places of the Elgin Street. Good food, great service and reasonable price made my dinner with friends a fabulous experience!

The French restaurant has a friendly service, good food and a large choice of French cuisine. The prices are high compared to other restaurants in this neighborhood.

I had previously been here for Sunday brunch on a few occasions and although good the brunch offering is quite simple and does not suggest the level of creation on offer for dinner. Myself and a friend were in the area and went really as we were close by. We had the fixed price 3 course dinner at $300 per... More

Been here for dinner several times, usually very good. Recently went for weekend lunch and was very disappointed. Items on a small menu not available and quality definitely lacking. Ingredients very skimpy assumingly to give better value for money? Very nice ambience and good service but please make it feel like a real French bistro not a cheapskate version!

French tradition meets modern cuisine does not disapoint! White table cloths and black jackets make a very elegant french setting. With classic french cooking presented in a modern style. I would suggest the goats cheese bon bon and beetroot gravlax salmon starter very tasty Look forward to seeing you again soon
