“Croissants and french atmosphere in arrowtown”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

our tiny spattering of french was appreciated by these fabulous staff. They were caring and super-friendly and the whole atmosphere on our last sunny morning in Arrowtown just topped the whole visit. Lovely red-clad tables (dogs welcome), and lots of languages spoken. Crisp but smallish croissants - we had to get another to use up the generous cream cheese pottle and jam. Even though our French was appalling they did not laugh at us, but welcomed our small attempts - next to the table of French tourists even! The view of the trees and colours of the Arrow river lupins just added to the atmosphere.

“Very tasty lunch served by happy chatty staff”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

On our recent visit to Queenstown my wife insisted on taking me here for lunch. She had thoroughly enjoyed a dinner here with friends a couple of years ago. We were greeted and served by a very friendly and helpful French / Cambodian waitresss. Her lunch recomendations of boeuf bourguignon and salmon galette were extremely tasty and of generous proportions, for a very modest price. Service was good without being intrusive or overbearing. Very nice setting too. Good effort Bonjour!! Keep it up.

“THE place to eat in Arrowtown”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

If you desire a quaint atmosphere, delicious food, prompt service and a reasonable price, you've picked the right place. As a tour director, I travel all over the world and I know a good dining establishment. The mushroom soup was yummy! My crepe tasted like one I would get on the left bank of the Seine River in Paris, complete with the French atmosphere. Give it a try--you'll be so happy you did!

“A wee bit of France”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

I stopped for a pastry and felt like I was in Paris, I looked at the menu and regretted I had not found it before lunch as the options looked great.
