“Fabolous Reasturant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

My Partner and I had dinner at Antoines last night and it was one of the best restaurant experiences i can remember.
Food was fantastic, service first class and atmosphere wonderful. This is a great example of fine dining.

The menu is divided into two parts, the "current" menus and a "Nostalgia" menu. We had dishes off both and they were great.
I cant to may good things about our experience.
If you are looking for a great restaurant experience, and a fantastic restaurant, then this is the place for you

“One of the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

I have been meaning to eat at Antoine's for many, many years but something or somewhere else got in the way. I finally got there on Saturday night and was not disappointed. The food was excellent with multiple dishes and specials to choose from. There are 3 styles of menu you can choose from and we chose from across all three with excellent results. Portions were very good and wine was also very good. Service I could not fault really, however, our Waiter had a very strong accent which took a bit of effort to understand on occassion. We went with friends who are foodies and we all really enjoyed ourselves. It is the perfect place for a special occassion as well. The inside is very much like sitting in a comfortable dining room in an old Villa with enough privacy and space between the tables to not hear your neighbours conversation. We will be back again soon. Definitely one of our new favourites. Oh, and price, expensive but not too expensive, and worth it.

“A class act”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

I went here for dinner with my father for a special occasion and it certainly delivered. Exquisite food from start to finish and a great top end wine selection. It was expensive but you get what you pay for. We will certainly be back. Highly recommend for that special occasion and/or want to impress.

“Finest classical dinning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

While I wouldn't say Antoine's was my first pick for our special occasion dinner I have to say that the whole experience was just perfect. From the friendly relaxed welcome to the silver service to the incredibly diverse menu all to cooked perfection, its an excellent package.
The restaurant is very comfortable and quiet with three dining areas affording good privacy. So we have had two meals at this fine restaurant in two weeks (we had to sample its wares first!) and I have to repeat that on both occasions it was faultless. Somehow over its 40 year history Antoine's has managed to stay relevant and on top of its game and that must be testimony to the dedication of the owners. If you want a classic meal (visit the website) with good portions, wonderful flavours, in intimate surroundings with attentive but not obsequious staff then give this a go. It is worth every penny (and you will need to take a few with you!)
