We visited La Guillotine during a Sydney weekend with our au pair who in true french style insited on celebrating her birthday at a french restaurant (we drew the line at going to McDonalds - her one true love).
No being a particular fan of french food, traditional or otherwise I did my ususal google reasearch and convinced Margaux that La Guillotine was a fabled Sydney institution and that it would be just like home - she believed me.
So, with some apprehension we walked from the hotel to La Guillotine and ended up enjoying a great little evening with wonderful staff and service, a very relaxed atmosphere and very good, traditional and incredibly well proced food and a good selection of regional french wines and champagne.
The menus were pretty much what one would find in any provincial french town - a good thing - without pretensions or airs. I understand the snails, which our Margaux was hankering for were delicious and as good as anything she would have had back home adn I can certanly vouch for the several bottles of wine we emptied and the food I had.
Highly recommend La Guillotine - you will not be dissapointed - but I still prefer italian food ;-)
