“Beautiful food, Beautiful venue!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

I had previously eaten at Chez Nous, before the revamp (2012ish to April 2013)...And while the food was good then and the waitrons were enthusiastic etc...Frank and Shane have totally upped their game! The new Westville Junction is bright and open, and Chez Nous mirrors that with exquisite ease - beautiful walls, fittings etc, right down to ornate mirrors in the bathrooms...Besides it looking amazing and being intimate for a nice Date night as a couple, it is also great for friends getting together over a bottle of well selected, affordable wine...But what I think most people (Or at least couples with young families) will love about it is the huge "kiddies" area, there are game consoles, a TV and arty things too...as well as a very capable and lovely child minder to watch them and facilitate activities. Now to the food...I always judge a restaurant by their salads because although they seem simple most places miss the mark...And Chez Nous was definitely up to and beyond my high standards - I had a lovely Caeser Salad as a main, gorgeous! Also had their Salmon and Avo stack as a starter and that was also very fresh and quite delish! The portions are of a more than ample size and I found it to be great value for money. The others at the table tried a variety of things, including the tempura prawns which went down a real treat, 3 way calamari and fish cakes...All very nice! The Rumps and other steaks were also very good, perfectly grilled - not one complaint...and we are usually quite fussy diners. Then on to great Lavazza coffees, and caramel cheesecake for the pudding fiends...Deliciously sweet and beautifully presented. I would recommend Chez Nous...I went in expecting the RJ's or Spur vibe since I had heard how kid friendly it was, but I was so pleasantly surprised at its perfect balance. They are open all day...breakfast, lunch and dinner...Will be going back for many years to come!

“Lovely Family Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

It's rare to find a restaurant where you can take young children, where they are entertained and looked after and where the parents can relax in an "adult" environment and enjoy fantastic food.

The children are rewarded with a treat/toy when they leave the restaurant, which they look forward to and is a nice touch.

This is a definite must for families with young children or even without children! Thumbs Up!

“Family restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

Family restaurant, perfect if you have kids as you can watch them play in the play room while you dine, they even have a minder to watch over them. The food is tasty with kids menu available. Waiters need serious training! Pretencious, very rude with attitude & no concept of etiquette...stretching over the table and making all basic mistakes. This is based on more than a few visits (friends with kids seem to love this place!! Must be the play room) I would never go back I might kill a waiter!
