Best bistro outside Lyon (well in Perth at least)

Back here for lunch after a two year break and it's just as good as it was then. The three course $50 lunch special is good value for three excellent dishes. Unlike a lot of places, bread is free and very good it is too. Reasonable wine list including some good stuff by the glass. My only... read more

There is only one word: Superb! Plus the bonus of the owner sharing his stories, ergo taking the time to chat with each guest!

It was a spur of the moment decision to dine here with my foodie friends . We were not disappointed. We chose the set price menu which was fabulous. Our waiter was very pleasant and he was from France and quite knowledgable about the wine and food. We chose dishes off the blackboard menu and each one was tasty and... More

Went for lunch with my wife. The food was great, service excellent and the $25 lunch menu is very good value. It was busy, but our young French waiter was on the ball, knowledgable about the food and wine, and looked after us very well. Good wine list and reasonably priced. It has the ambience of a French bistro. Makes... More

Starting with three and a half stars, the friendly service and lovely duck might have pushed the Artistes towards a rating of four but overall the food wasn't there and all the hard surfaces mean that a busy Friday lunch equals a very noisy dining environment. The duck might have been lovely but it looked a bit sparse with some... More

All that topped with a French Syrah and excellent service. My guess was also very happy with his selection. For your Next time in Perth,... More
