“Excellent food”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Try Bergerac for dinner - old world ambiance - extensive menu - interesting specials - good wine list containing French and Australian wines.
Service was welcoming, friendly, enthusiastic and timely.
3 persons for dinner, 2 had first course of soup, one vegetable, one french onion. Both raved about the taste, consistency and overall enjoyment of good wholesome fresh food.
Mains included Seafood mixed grill - fresh seafood - my wife a strong critique of seafood when not executed properly said the meal was one of the best she had tasted and enjoyed. One guest from Singapore had pork chops - summation - excellent!
I thoroughly enjoyed a medium rare quality steak with a side of mushrooms - mouth watering, perfectly cooked, every morsel enjoyed to the max.
Sweets were decadent - you will not leave disappointed.
The bill ? about $210 for 3 including a very nice Cote De Rhone French Red.
Don't be put off by the exterior of the restaurant located on King Street Melbourne - frankly it has zero to entice you to enter - until you do - an amazing experience awaits. A hidden gem that has been serving excellence in French cuisine since 1985! Must be doing something right?!

“Authentic French Cusine”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

My boyfriend and I came here Sunday night after being recommended by a friend. We were greater by a lovely waiter you was very informative and kind. We ordered a dozen escargot (snails), a cold meats platter and French onion soup. It was my first time trying snails and they were absolutely delicious. They came already shelled in a yummy garlic and parsley sauce. The meat platter was to die for and the accompanying butter was delicious. We had 3 entrees, two mains, dessert and two glasses of sparkling moscato all for $150, what a bargain!! Will definitely be coming back!

“Lovely traditional French food in authentic restaurant”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Great food from a traditional French menu. Loved the feel of the restaurant, very authentic, it was like stepping into a little part of rural France. Plenty of space for diners and not noisy.

My beef was very tasty and a good French wine list.

“Great Restaurant. Well worth it.”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

We regularly go to Bergerac. The food is great, service excellent and they are always very accommodating and will do their best to fit you in, even if your booking is last minute. They have a good wine selection and the food is consistently good.

The wait staff are very friendly and they greet you with a warm smile which is sincere and nice.

The restaurant itself has a great time warped ambience. The trestles and ornaments are from bygone generations and you'll always find Edith Pier or similar French classic faintly humming in the background.

Well worth it.

“Tres Magnifique”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

We went here for a family birthday (me and my wife's). We loved the atmosphere, the great service and the space. Our visit was on a Sunday but there were only a few tables empty.
The food was great. My wife had the duck and I had a Tasmanian Rib eye, which was very tasty. The waiter remembered us from a short visit a couple of months earlier and had offered to deduct the cost of my sons desert because he couldn't remember the desert that my son had liked, needless to say we declined his offer. The wine list had an extensive choice of French and local wines with my favorite an Alsace Pinot Blanc.

Overall, highly recommended for the quality of the food, the friendly service and the quiet ambience.
