This restaaurant is quite small, but delicious! Perfect spot is you wanna good service and meals! The starter was little bit queer, but the main was fantastic! Can recommend for casual dining.

“A delightful NYE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We had the pleasure of dining at Le Pelican on New Years' Eve and couldn't have been happier with the ambience, the food and the friendly service. The goat's curd, red pepper sorbet and Serrano crisp not only looked quite striking but was also a wonderful blend of texture and flavour. The Christmas pudding souffle, served with Armangac ice cream, was a standout. Can't wait to visit again. Many thanks for the experience.

“A Touch of France”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Whenever we crave a touch of affordable French/Australian fusion cuisine we head for Le Pelican. Jean Francois as the owner/chef and his partner Ally in front of house, always deliver a quality experience. The menu changes regularly to fit the seasons and the affordable wine list has a good mix of Australian and French wines to please most palates. If you like to match your wine with your meal, just ask their somelier, Claire for some guidance. The cosy ambience is enhanced by being in a little old heritage cottage. Food from a master French chef, French wine, the sound of French accents with a freindly touch to the service always makes for a good night.

“Charming, excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

This is a charming place with the most lovely front of house staff; modern French food served in a no-fuss approach. Would be delighted to return - prices reasonable
