“Fantastic food”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

This is a rustic cafe that serves up very good quality food. The service is fantastic too and it's nice to hear communication between staff in the kitchen making sure customers are being properly looked after.

I had what would be amongst the best roast chickens I can recall eating; it truly was very tasty.

They have a kid friendly menu too with choices available that any kid would enjoy.

The prices are very reasonable too.

We'd love to eat here again.

“Bon A petit!!!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

On a recent trip to the South Island to visit relatives, we visited this quaint and charming cafe, which I have to say is a must if visiting Arrowtown. The omelettes were delicious and the staff were so authentically French that I thought I was in France. My husband decided we should have a breakfast that was warming and definitely comforting on a very chilly morning. The young man, who had arrived recently to this part of the country and was from Brittany was very attentive and chatted happily while setting tables and organising his day. I will be looking to forward to visiting again for another breakfast delight.....

“Slow Lunching with Family in Arrowtown - A Good Experience.”
Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

A lovely dining experience! The mulled wine was the best we've ever had and the food was fresh and tasty. This was our second visit and both times have been enjoyable experiences. The baked Camembert with walnuts was choice; we'll be back!

“Very french!”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

Lovely authentic French café in Arrowtown. Had hot mugs of mulled wine sitting in the sunshine in the freezing temperatures. They leave warm blankets on the chairs for those who prefer to sit outside. Had seafood vol au vent and escargot. Both yummy. And took away a macaron for later. Loved it! Will return to try the crepes.

“Tres, tres bon!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

What a great find this is. You could be in France. Wonderful continental staff (not all French but French speaking) to assist in this busy establishment. The home made breads and patisserie items certainly looked like 'the real thing' although we ran out of room to try them. We had the sweet and savoury galettes and a crepe to share amongst our family of four and what wonderful mouthfuls they were. The galettes (savoury & sweet pancakes) made with buckwheat especially suited my gluten free husband.

My only suggestion to improve on this wonderful place would be to suggest they change the chairs from the rather noisy, clunky and clumsy ones they provide. Otherwise, an excellent place to go to. Tres, tres bon!
