“Paris by the sea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

What a place! We recently visited with my young (fussy) son and we were blown away by the service, location and the food. We all ate different things and they were all fantastic. The service is second to none and my son felt valued as they did everything they could to accommodate his rather non adventurous palate.
The food is something else, fresh, flavoursome and French. From the seafood special to the tender cuts of meat, we all enjoyed ourselves immensely.
Save room for dessert though, this is also a patisserie of significant quality. (I had previously bought a chocolate indulgence to serve as my wife's birthday cake... these guys are good!)
We love this place and will return for sure. Make sure you book.

“Fluffy French”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

Great service, super bubbly owner/waitress, but the food was just OK. Pate entree was good, hubby had the snails which tasted alright, but was served on a bed of bread, rather than the lovely garlicky butter sauce you assume snails to come immersed in. The mains, a salad of duck and pork was good, but the red emperor fish with chips was a bit of let-down because the fish was only luke warm, but the chips were great! Overall, a bit sad.

“French bistro style coming of age in Noosa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014 via mobile

Don't let the simple cafe layout trick you, this French couple are building a genuine French bistro in their new adopted home Australia.
Worth the detour to Noosaville for great patisserie and tasty bistro style meals!

“Great value French food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

This is a great little french patisserie which turns into a casual restaurant at night. Being BYO, it is great value, and the food is delicious.

“Ooh la la!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

This is somewhat of a "hidden gem" - set back from the sidewalk in a small cluster of shops - you could easily miss it - unless of course you found it first on Trip Advisor!

Beautiful, simple, tasty food, prepared and served with passion and genuine warmth by a young couple from the south of France.

The cakes and desserts are divine (the chef is a trained patissier) but the savoury dishes are equally impressive. We had seafood crepes (one of my most memorable meals), Pork fillet with apple & mustard, Profitoroles, and a mille-feuille (not all at the same sitting!).

Can't get enough of the place - we are heading back for breakfast in a day or two.
