Have been to this restaurant on a few occasions and enjoyed the experience but was so disappointed last night. The mushroom souffle was not served in it,s own dish fresh from the oven but was more like a small omelette sitting in the middle of the plate. Three in our party selected beef tenderloin as we were told that 2... More

Went here for dinner with friends mid-week and we were quite happy. Service was very attentive, the menu quite good (although we opted for the three courses deal as it was a great price) and plenty of wines to choose from, even though we brought our own for a celebration. Quality and presentation of the food was quite good and... More

First visit here and decided to visit during the last week of our 6 weeks in Sydney after viewing the menu during a coffee stop on Saturday morning. How glad we did, from the first taste of the amuse bouche we felt it was going to be good. Two of us had the pork and black sausage and one had... More

Sadly the worst meal we have ever had here. Very disappointing main course, unattentive service. Sad to see what has been a great experience in the past being spoiled so easily!

La Grande Bouffe is a neighbourhood treasure that is within walking distance of my home. The atmosphere is warm and very French. They have a great menu with a matching wine list.

We have dined here a number of times, and each time have found the experience very good. This is a small but well set out restaurant, with a nice relaxed decor. The food is solid French fare, without being too "tricky". Lovely quality of dishes, some new and some older style favourites. Good wine selection, well priced. Can BYO some... More

We took our good friends to their favorite restaurant in Rozelle, to thank them for having us stay with them and we were not disappointed. Good and warm ambiance, small restaurant (and I mean that in a very good way!) - intimate is a better word, good and personalised service with a smile, delicious food (with good presentation), champagne and...

This is an authentic French restaurant from top to bottom. You could be in Paris. The menu offers the opportunity for new experiences without being intimidating. We arrived around 8.15 without a booking on a Tuesday night and were surprised how busy it was. I would recommend making a booking later in the week. The food was well presented and... More

My wife and I had a delightful Saturday afternoon lunch here a few weeks ago. A lazy afternoon with Steak Frites, Sour Cheery & Pistachio Parfait and a bottle of beaujolais. Our waiters were friendly, attentive and very professional. We had booked an outside table because our poodle (naturally) decided to join us and the staff kindly provided a bowl... More

This little café is always very busy. Great little lunch and lots on the menu. Service was friendly and worth a try. Found their meals to be on the small side but quite tasty. Breakfast will be our next try at this little café. When you order a coffee make sure it is hot as ours was luke warm but... More
