Went here recently for a celebration with friends, our table of 8 was well situated and the staff made us feel that we were the only ones there. Impeccable food perfectly cooked & served with charm. The staff had great wine knowledge and recommendations. Biggest surprise was the bill at the end of the evening, day less than I expected!!

I've walked past this place often, but never been in. I've been missing a complete gem! Food was amazing. Service and atmosphere were warm, friendly and welcoming. Lovely restaurant. Highly recommend.

From the moment you walk in, it feels like home. Jenny is fabulously welcoming and helpful, the food was beautiful, and the atmosphere perfect. We'll definitely be back, and would highly recommend for a lovely night out

A true French Brasserie experience. the dishes are not heavily "worked" but at the same time are flavoursome, fresh and interesting. the service is friendly and the ambience is relaxed. Bon apetit.

The owner is a great host, real character. Small cozy restaurant. The food was also very good, little pricey but it's BYO wine only which is great. We had a great night.

Jenny our host always makes us feel at home. We just keep on coming back with friends, work colleagues and even hosted a murder mystery night here. This is beautiful French food, the quality of the steaks and seafood is impeccable. I can't go past the Moules marinière with crusty bread followed by a peppered steak and a rhubarb crumble....

I try to eat here every time I visit Melbourne. The food is excellent (French bistro style, high quality but not schmancy), there are plenty of French and local wines by the glass, and the hostess treats us like family. The setting is comfortably low-key: it's a place to enjoy a relaxed dinner with friends, not to "be seen". We... More

Lovely restaurant, owner very friendly and the food excellent. French onion soup was very good was a little too sweet for my husband but I thought it was very good. For mains my husband had the eye fillet with the mustard glaze and I had the porterhouse. Both were cooked perfectly and had good flavour, they are accompanied by a... More
