“Great Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

Very interesting layout - long and skinny, great food (we had the tasing menu which was $80 for 5 courses but added cheese as well) and good size serves - was well and truly full at the end. Interesting wine list with many labels I had not seen before and a good selection of French wines as well. Friendly staff but restaurant was full Friday dinner time and there were not enough of them so slow service on occasion but always helpful and friendly.

We went with the chef's menu and were not disappointed. Great use of local, seasonal ingredients and excellent service.

“Not bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

Nice looking restaurant with nice atmosphere. Friendly staff but only 2 waitresses working, so service could have been more prompt.

Meals were nice.

There is a smell of dank drain water that whafts from the kitchen and is the same smell that is in the elevator to the restrooms. Needs attention as this detracts from the experience.

“Geof - we enjoyed the experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

Yes! it is a narrower than usual restaurant but we never felt crowded. We were greeted at lunch time on a Friday and made welcome immediately on arrival. The art work on the walls led to an interesting discussion about art but was clearly an indication of the owners interest in promoting the works of local artists. The food was outstanding - all four of us were impressed with the range of food on offer and enjoyed our choices; however we were delighted with the manner and helpfulness of the waitress who took the time to described the menu choices and the way the food was to be cooked. The wine list was teriffic whilst the wines we chose were superb. There are time when you can depart from a restaurant and feel over fed and bloated - the size of the serves at Bistro Dom were such that very enjoyable were the words that best described the meal. A superb lunch experience. Just by the way - the toilet experience can be somewhat dampening if it is raining.

“One of the best restaurants in Adelaide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

Tiny, narrow room but great authentic French food, with excellent service. Much cheaper than an airfare to Paris as well. Good wine list with some excellent French choices as well. Lunch special deal (2 courses and a glass of wine) is excellent value, although the serving size is smaller than the normal menu. Friendly staff - both Oz and French. One of my faourite Adelaide restaurants - have been several times and never disappointed
