This is the third time we've been here and the food has been pretty good every time! Every time we take the kids 4/6 and they are able to tear a place up if they want to. The service here is good and they are spoken to like customers and not like pesky kids, i like that. The Sousou breakfast is huge and all the different elements are really tasty! Top notch bacon and the hash brown rosti thing is sensational. We also had baked eggs which looked awful but were delicious, what would i know. The kids had croissants and milkshakes and scoffed the lot - not the usual. A comfortable place with a nice simple but elegant setting. back again for sure!

Madame Sousou is a Melbournian dining treasure. The food is consistently very good, fresh and tasty...whether it is for breakfast/brunch or lunch....you will not be disappointed. And at very reasonable prices too. The coffee is consistently excellent. The wine list will not disappoint. The friendly, smiling and prompt service is a hallmark of Madame Sousou...staff who enjoy their work is a rare find in the hospitality industry. The rustic decor, music and art add to the charm of Madame Sousou..... though it can be a tad crammed when the restaurant is busy at the weekends but I think one can easily overlook this when everything from excellent service, great food and coffee, and a buzzy atmosphere work together for the customer. Definitely a regular hangout if I were to live in the area.

Madame Sou Sou was the perfect place to share Sunday brunch with friends. The atmosphere was great - buzzing with conversation, great music and exuding an invigorating energy. The food was very good as was the service. Luckily we booked ahead as it is a very popular spot. The breakfast menu is extensive, and no calorie is spared in the sauces. Typically French, the baked oeuf was laden with butter which, while very tasty, will require some concerted effort to restore my cholesterol level back to normal. This was my first visit to this great little bistro - but definitely not my last. Recommended for all who don't have a hearing aid!

Beautiful french restaurant, great set up, decor, artwork and great atmosphere and ambiance. Our dinner was beautifully cooked, flavours and textures really well balanced and takes the words out of your mouth. Our waitress was well groomed, well spoken and very attentive. Would highly recommend a visit here as restaurant is very versatile catering for all meals throughout the day, great choice of seating inside, outside roadside with plenty to see or outside more quiet and private. Excellent range of wines catering for many tastes and a very versatile menu. Thank you for showing us a wonderful night and proving great service still exists.
