We came upon this restaurant accidently and we are so pleased we did. It was a classic French food experience with service from delightful young French staff. Such a warm and pleasant ambience with a large table for 6 where one didn't feel squashed, a rarity indeed today.
The food was beautfully cooked and presented, my crab ravioli was superb served on hot plates!!!! The wine is reasonably priced with a varied choice from Australia and France.
The food cost was reasonable for the quality and we walked away entirely happy.

I knew I had hit jackpot when I walked in the door to book a table and staff were talking to each other in French. The rest of the experience went from there. I could have been in a restaurant in France. The food was excellent, they have a formule midi (lunch special) of 2 courses for $28 which was great. Be warned this place is by no means funky French but more what you would expect from a small family run bistro in provincial France. Definitely recommend.

Highly recommended. Classic French Bistro, great atmosphere, excellent food. We had a selection of seafood and classic French mains. Nice, we'll be back.

Tonight 27 July 2013 we had dinner at the Bergerac the food was passable bistro standard and was in this dinners estimation average.
The staff were very fresh faced and tried to provide service with a smile which the did very well regrettably they were poorly trained and as it turned out were young people on a working holiday,
they had little if any table experience which detracted from the experience.
Tables were left uncleared, butter was supplied but no bread provided, the customers had to poor their own wine.
The lighting was very harsh and sufficient to eliminate the MCG which detracted significantly from the overall effect of a relaxed comfortable environment.
There are any number of restaurants at this level who do a far better job and pay considerably more attention to detail.
The experience was a little disappointing and we will not be rushing back.
