We visited Le Bistrot du Sommelier because one of us was craving for Boudin Noir. It was definitely a good call to visit. We actually went to the second floor where the Rillette Bar is. We had French tapas to share among 6 of us family. We tried their beef, which was top notch quality and taste. Most of the... More

Small restaurant serving excellent french home-style food. The pates and rillettes are delicious! Even the house wines were good enough. Not cheap, dinner came to about $430 including a bottle of house red.

We sat in the down stairs dinning section. The interior is kept in a "French" style and is pretty cosy. The food is good. We had three different starters. Frog legs, snails and scallops. For msin course we tried two different ones: the beef tartare and the beef shoulder. It all tasted nice, but lacked a bit more depth to... More

We had the vacherin mont d'or stuffed with homemade chorizo with a side of potatoes, a delicious rich and hearty lamb stew, and the potato gratin. My boyfriend is a big eater but all of that filled us up to a food coma level. A very small, cute and romantic place. Staff are also very friendly! Would definitely recommend it... More

We loved it! The food was reminiscent of what we'd be enjoying on a fine spring day in French countryside. The crusty bread and pork rillette was marvellous. We loved the escargots and garbure, a vegetable soup with pork sausage but the absolute highlight of our appetisers was the vacherin mont dor - a pot of melted cheese with onions... More

This is a personal favourite of mine whenever I can gather a group of 4 or more meat lovers. The restaurant doesn't allow customers to wine but to be fair they have an impressive and very affordable wine list and Max the owner is happy to recommend a bottle which suits your taste and budget. The highlight is always the... More

The Rillette Bar upstairs at Le Bistrot du Sommelier is good spot for a glass of wine and a snack or a full bottle of wine and a meal. The decor is rustic and they specialise in rustic French rillettes and patés of duck, pork, rabbit, etc. They have quite a few warm dishes from a lamb cocotte with cheese... More

What worked against it was the high expectations of food quality and service - it wasn't bad, but certainly not great. Long time to wait for the food - close to or just over an hour.......and when it did arrive, was good, but not great, despite the increased hunger.

i went to le bistrot with high expectations having heard good reviews of it from friends. i was underwhelmed. the ambience was nice - cozy and quaint etc. i found the food just passable and service not up to scratch. food took forever to come and was nothing special given the wait and the cost (expensive). the waiter (who in...
