Reviewed March 11, 2011

A great little place to eat with a good selection of all courses. it has a chatty atmosphere and the service is very good due to the small size of the restaurant.

“Consistently great food, excellent value and service”
Reviewed May 23, 2010

Whenever we are in Brisbane we always head back to the restaurant. Beautifully simple but inspired comfort food. excellent service and just like being part of a little French corner cafe where you always feel comfortable and welcome. And the prices are very reasonable.

“Feels like you're in France”
Reviewed February 7, 2010

This place is very cosy and quaint - definitely feels like you could be at a bistro in Paris. I went there for a function and had a set menu. It's a little pricey but the food is top quality. Tip: with dessert, the more indulgent the better. I chose the yoghurt pannacotta over the creme brulee and instantly regretted it when I tasted the creme brulee! Yum.

“Refreshing change from other mediocre Brisbane restaurants”
Reviewed May 13, 2009

Had very nice family dinner here recently. Great wine list, bustling, cosy atmosphere in a nice location. Staff friendly and helpful even though they were busy. Bread starter with cheese really delicious. Other meals all very good compared to most other Brisbane restaurants.

“If you want great food, great service, great atmosphere - then this is it!”
Reviewed January 25, 2009

I too found it difficult to locate this cafe - it obviously does not rely on neon signs to direct would-be customers to its unassuming door. But once I managed to find the cafe (really a restaurant) I had an absolutely great time.

I was part of a group and the restaurant catered for us very well with fantastic customer service which cannot be faulted in any way - we had a charming waiter look after us!

The food was delicious and, in my opinion, served in an appropriate portion (not too much, not too little).

There was a real wonderfully vibrant atmosphere to this place, and I would highly reccommend this restaurant to anyone who visits Brisbane, or anyone who has moved to Brisbane and is dying for a decent restaurant!

Very happy with this restaurant - will return!
