“Unexpected great food and service...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

After deciding to try one of these new funky cafes of Alexandria while in the area we accidentally ended up at Bitton not really sure what to expect. Awesome burger I had with the pickles inside absolutely cracking it with this man of a burger. Can't wait until next airport pickup... We're definitely going there again.

“Work, but a good night out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

We went here as part of a work dinner and so had hired half of the restaurant. The food was excellent, and considering there was thirty of us all needing to be served at the same time, the food came out hot. We had a three course meal with a selection of three dishes in each course. The staff were friendly and very professional. It was a good choice for work and I will be going back to try the menu again.

“high quality - first time every time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

I've been going to Bitton Gourmet 4 or 5 times a week for over 13 years. And there are some very good reasons why. The place is always clean, organised and spacious. Don't you hate those places where you feel crowded? Not so at Bitton. The layout is smart and the traffic flows. There are several different areas inside from romantic nooks to a large table for the big gathering to a place where you can watch your children play - Yes! they have a playroom. Or you can eat out the front (under cover) and watch the activities in the beautiful park across the road.
Now onto the service. The staff are terrific. Bitton seems to have collected and trained some of the best staff around. They're quick, polite and attentive, and you're greeted as you walk in. Don't you hate those places where you're left wondering (and wandering) what the system is? Here, the staff are at your beck and call; they're never far away and they're quick! And, for those that care about such things, they're in uniform, they're well-groomed and they look smart.
So what about the food? The food is delicious. From the one-pan bacon & eggs to the chorizo, green capsicum and cheddar cheese quesadilla with avocado salad to the pappadelle with pork, fennel, sage and spicy tomato sauce served with parmesan - everything is always cooked to perfection. Brilliant!
Whether you're after breakfast, lunch or dinner - or all three - give it a go. If you do, you'll want to come back.

“Fabulously French”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

David Britton must be a genius ! This cafe is just wonderful! Simple seasonal menu......takes me back to Paris. I had the scrumptious smoked trout salad and a blueberry tart. OMG ! Great setting , a choice to sit outside on the sidewalk overlooking the park, inside in the cool, or in the courtyard. What a choice. And very kid friendly ( even has a kids play room). Highly recommended. Can't wait to go back!
