Friendly and appropriate service, and tasty well prepared food. Bread is very more-ish. Over priced.

After work or weekend- wined down great meal service and cost. The Moncur you can choose to stay at the bar, to eat calmly at the open air (weather-dependent) bistro or the more conservatively styled restaurant. All is worth your situation and circumstance?

Read about it, heard about and looking forward to visiting?; that was certainly moi. And so very much let down. Yes the souffle was delighful but .. ... ... ... the much talked about wine list is shallow, lacks imagination and expensive for waht you get. To make matters worse should you have a question there was no sommelier but... More

Bistro Moncur food delivers a consistent sophisticated style and variety of flavours. This time I ate the barramundi - mouth watering. The fav dish for lunch was definitely their soufflé with chocolate ice cream. (See photo). Never got a rise out of a soufflé like that before. Impressive plus light & fluffy. Plenty to spare could have easily shared the... More

Need somewhere where the food will be consistent, the service professional - quick and courteous, and everything is a reliable? Bistro Moncur has held the standard for that in Sydney for dinners over more than a decade. When I was flying through Sydney on a visit - Bistro Moncur has been my venue for the traditional annual catch up with... More

Sophisticated French bistro food. Consistently good. A good range of dishes on the menu. Some lovely French wines. The chef is willing to adapt dishes if there is something you dont eat. The staff are always warm and friendly, and ensure that everything is OK. It is always a pleasure to eat at Bistro Moncur.

a girls' lunch for 4 yesterday for a friend's birthday. Absolutely fantastic. The last time I went to lunch at BM which was in November, we received unfriendly service from the staff and yet there were 12 of us. The restaurant wasn't packed on that occasion although 3/4 full. We all felt 'unwanted' as we left. In fact we left... More

I used to frequent bistro Moncur in its first decade quite often when we lived in Sydney and loved it but haven't been back in the last ten years but our visit tonight clearly shows it's still going strong, still had my all time favourite dishes and still doesn't disappoint - either food quality or great service. Won't be waiting... More

We haven't been to "Bistro Moncur" for more than a decade...so perhaps we have changed or maybe the restaurant has...we felt like we were in a "time warp" and the restaurant has not kept pace with the rest of the world...the service was pretty good and the menu "looked" fine...the wine list was extremely expensive for what was being offered...overall,...

This restaurant has such a good reputation that it was almost full on this Sunday evening but the service was so professional and efficient that we never needed to ask for anything all night, it just appeared. The food was excellent - especially the entrée of crab omelette. I totally recommend this place if you are looking for good food,... More
