We went as a bit of a treat, and it was worth it. The food was delicious and the service attentive. I had the chicken ballotine (not at all rubbery, as one other reviewer mentioned), it was soft and succulent with a tasty ham broth....More

Great service, delicious French food. Good atmosphere. Different areas in which to sit. Outside in sunshine. Lounge areas and normal table seating. Separate room downstairs - cosy in winter and good for large groups.

Take the ferry to the inner west suburb of Balmain and

from the hotels at night. As the place where the
Australian Labor Party formed in 1891, Balmain has
