“Lovely French restaurant in the heart of Coorparoo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

Quaint little restaurant that serves all the traditional classic French dishes you might desire...snails, duck & French fries! Service & food is great - this is not a pretentious restaurant but a down to earth suburban restaurant where the staff make you feel welcome & the food tastes like a beautiful home cooked meal right from out of the heart of the french countryside.

“A little bit of France in the most unlikely place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

It's the "sorbet" between courses that really makes the difference between just any restaurant and a dining experience. The chef at La Provence makes a new and different variety at every visit. I love the quiet ambiance of mid-week the best, Chef has time to come out of the very busy kitchen and chat to the patrons. He is obviously a man who loves his job! By the way, the other food is excellent also... really authentically French.

“Divine - pure heaven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

Had dinner here with my mum as we had a 2 for 1 dining voucher. What a gorgeous restaurant with character! Lovely waitstaff - very friendly and chatty and had some great recommendations. We had eye fillet with blue cheese sauce and salmon, scallops and mussels in aioli sauce. So fresh! Yum! Free corkage here too. The chef was most interested to see how our meals were afterwards and was super friendly. We will be back!!
