Being from Lyon, I could not think of tasting Tripes Lyonnaise in Australia, even more probably the best one I ever had.
This restaurant is a must for fantastic food, great athmosphere and superbe wines...
Well done guys, keep up the hard work and I will be back for sure!!!

“Great night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

Four of us ate on a Saturday night recently … it was exceptionally good … none of us could fault the food, it was pretty authentic French cuisine, the service was incredibly friendly and authentic French, the wine list was a touch disappointing but nevertheless wasn’t over-priced so no complaints.
Overall very good value for money … two entrée, four mains, three bottles of wine and some water was $315.
It was a winner in the NSW I Love Food awards in 2012 … we were not in the least bit surprised by that … book ahead if you want to eat on weekend evenings … we certainly will next time we’re in Byron.

“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

We really enjoyed our evening at the petite snail, and they made such an effort to make our anniversary so special. Thank you for a lovely evening! We had the house wine which was lovely and very reasonably priced. Desserts were great - especially loved the experience of having crepe Suzette cooked at the table. My partner loved his steak. My duck was good but perhaps a little to sweet. All in all a great evening and would definitely recommend this restaurant. We will come back.

“met all our expectations!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

This place was wonderful! We had heard about this restaurant on here and made up our minds to check it out. We weren't disappointed at all.
The service from both the owner and the wait staff was impeccable. They were friendly, hospitable and on top of everything. It makes a big difference that one staff member is allocated to only two to three tables at a time so that each party had the required attention. The timing of the food was perfect.
We loved the food especially the snails which was done the way we liked. All the food and wine was recommended by our waitress as we had no idea what to order. She has great taste:)
We would definitely be back to try other dishes!
