A most enjoyable experience.

Staying in Kooyong, on our first visit to Melbourne, my wife and I decided to eat locally on our first evening. Good choice! We enjoyed the whole experience, the staff were pleasant, the food was good (better than many meals we have had in France) and the wine most acceptable. Too full for... read more

The last night of this Kooyong icon as Patrice moves onto his next challenge. We have eaten here over ten years at this one hat restaurant that offers friendly quiet charm and tremendous french cuisine. Patrice and Demi did not disappoint with a degustation and matched wines which with quiet efficiency made us all realise that we will miss them.... More

The is beautiful small room. The tables are far enough apart you can hear yourself talk, the staff are French and know what they are doing and the food is really good french.They've been doing this for 15 years and maybe the hipsters have found trendier places to go. This is one in a million. Go now

Definitely the best place in the area. Kooyong, Armadale, Malvern and St Kilda. Real French cuisine made by a real French chef: you can taste the difference! For lunch and for dinner, it is worth each dollar! Definitely a first class spot.

Lunched at Koots this week with four friends and we all really enjoyed the meal and the entire feel of this delightful strip restaurant in Kooyong. Although I felt the wines were a little too supportive of France the food outshone any disappointment in this department. There is a special inexpensive lunch available which seemed very good value - most... More

I really liked this restaurant. We were considering going to an upmarket city restaurant and decided to try local. It was a great decision. The food was better than many of the top city restaurants and the service top notch. The maitre d' was very friendly and super knowledgeable and the efficiency was outstanding. The entrees were delicious and the... More

We visited Koots to celebrate a birthday and while we were more than happy with the food, we found the service and attitude of the waiter (or manager - not sure as he was the only one there apart from the chef). He was rude, discourteous, dismissive, unhelpful and patronising. Certainly not a good look for a restaurant with such... More

I grew up in kooyong when our local was a wonderful restaurant called Renoir. I moved to the bush 30 years ago, restaurants come and go.... I went to Koots last year with a close girlfriend, for a catch up... It was wonderful...we just had superbly cooked duck, followed by excellent tart tatin.could not have been happier. The owner operated... More

This is a place like we like, owned and run by a French chef, and cooking fresh products for splendid results. Come and try it! The service is just great, nice and professional, and the ambiance is very pleasant and quiet. Nice plate with tangy food at reasonable prices: come and enjoy! Bon appetit.

A great meal, we went for the June Melbourne food and wine roast month. Had a stunning slow roast lamb shoulder, fab wine, never gone wrong, this is our fourth visit and we shall return. I have no hesitation in recommending
