Having dined here at least twice a year for the last 6-7 years I have seen some ups and downs to this Geelong icon. Unfortunately the last couple of visits have been the worst I've experienced, inexperienced staff manning the floor, the food just not up to the mark that the prices command and the ever pricier mark-ups on the wine. The upmost indulgence at this restaurant is without a doubt the seafood platter and I have enjoyed this many times with the amazing view of the bay, but the last couple seem smaller and the presentation rushed. Their winter offerings of Beef bourguignon and a take on Tournedos rossini have been some of my favourite meals at Le Parisien. Will I be back? Most likely, It still has the location and ambience in tow. It would be nice to see the owner become involved a bit more like he used to be; greeting, serving and talking to the diners. Maybe then with the feedback received this restaurant will reclaim its former glory.
