“What a little gem!”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

From the initial friendly greeting to the service, ambiance and food this little French BYO restaurant has it all. I'm so pleased it's in our area so we can go more often. We have now been there for dinner on our own, with another couple and in a group of 8 and every time it has been superb. We have recommended this restaurant to all our friends.

“Excellent from start to finish”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

4 of us had dinner at Bistro Arlette last night. We were super impressed from the moment we walked into the Bistro. The welcome, the décor and the ambiance set the scene for a great night.
The waitress was delightful and added to our enjoyment. The food was delicious. We will recommend this restaurant to all our friends. It is a little bit expensive but worth every cent.

“A superb dining experience”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Great dining experience with two friends. The ambience is welcoming and the staff are fabulous. They were hospitable, have a great sense of humour and very helpful with recommending the best wine for our meal. We had a diverse choice of meals among the three of us - Confit of duck was to die for, Prawns in Pernod was flavoursome and perfectly cooked, Cassoulet was absolutely delicious, Escargots came in little pots with a puff pastry topping was a wonderful entrée. The meal sizes and accoutrements were perfect. If you want a quick trip to France, this fabulous bistro is a must do.

“5 Minute walk to France”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Bistro Arlette . This has to be one of Brisbanes best restaurants. . When I am homesick for some great French food I am fortunate enough to walk around 5 minutes from my home and when I set foot inside the door of this beautifully decorated french restaurant , I feel I am in France. The management /owners also chef are so friendly. One is warmly greeted as they do in France.
The selection of food is fantastic. I love the escargot ,They are consistently good. Another favourite is the brains. The service is always good. The tables are always nicely set ,with white tablecloths,and tablesettings. The wine glasses are so nice ,Love the tall stems .A nice selection of wine awaits. Along with the art,there are many interesting pieces to admire. Both areas are a joy to sit in. Cherie is a wonderful host and is easy to see why this restaurant is such a hit. Be sure to book,as this popular restaurant is always busy. New Farm is blessed to have this special restaurant in its suburb.
