“French Bistro in Paddington”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Good food , high prices , seating too close for comfort , as do not wish to hear conversations of immediate tables and whilst similar to French Bistros, the lack of space turns one of revisiting this restaurant

“Unbelievably delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

We decided upon the Degustation Menu and weren't disappointed. This is a beautifully decorated restaurant, with excellent service and ambience. I highly recommend the scallops and the Crepe Suzette. Make sure you come hungry as you will leave full and satisfied. Fantastic!

“Won't be returning”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

This may be a harsh score, but when you are paying $400+ for a meal and wine for 3 people you expect something amazing! To begin with the waiter was very condescending, he spoke to me like a child (and was not french). At the end of the meal he also politely pointed out where we enter his tip, I'm sorry but we did not leave one. My lamb was over cooked, I had asked for medium rare, and any decent restaurant should be able get that one right. The other meals were ok, but no where near the prices they charge. Much better restaurants in brisbane, i only come here if its a business meal and your not paying!

“France in Brisbane ?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

This restaurant is just so unique for Queensland. It's like going overseas for lunch without your passport ! The food is wonderful and the staff are amongst the most professional I have ever come across. Book in advance or you won't get in ! A Great experience .
