To celebrate a milestone with a group of people, diverse in age and tastes is a challenge. We felt confident that our needs would be met when we phoned to book. The booking experience was excellent, tight weekend due to the Writers Festival. We needed to pay a deposit which we didn't mind as it must be frustrating to anticipate a full restaurant, turn people away and have those who have made reservations not arrive. Our group of 8 were totally satisfied with all aspects of our French meal. Fresh, delicate flavours presented with flair. The restaurant was packed, they deserve the reviews they have received. The owners know how to cook and how to provide excellent service.

Dinner here last night was a last minute decision as the restaurant we had planned to eat at turned out to be café serving burgers and chips, not the dining experience this bunch of fabulous Byron Bay local ladies had had in mind for our Friday night out. I was thrilled when we managed to get a table due to a cancellation, as every other time I had attempted to dine here it had always been fully booked and I had been left with reservation envy.

The service was vivacious and welcoming and set us up for a great dining experience. My fellow dining companions were very pleased with the very gorgeous young male waiter who certainly left a very pleasant taste in our mouths (even if we were drooling).

Three of us had the steaks which certainly didn't disappoint!! The were tasty and melt in your mouth delicious! Loved the Blue cheese sauce... My other companion has the goats cheese entrée which she was very pleased with and was big enough to satisfy a small eater as a main.

If we had room for desert we certainly would have ordered it as they looked absolutely divine on the menu.

Next time my parents come to town I am taking them here pronto! But now I will know to make a reservation months ahead if I have too as its worth the forward planning. I am not sure if this delicious spot of France in Byron Bay is very well suited to vegetarians.... But there or so many restaurants around here that do vegetarian so well, that I am happy to eat here and enjoy the meat feast.

I saw another diner with the duck as I was leaving and think this will be a top choice for my next visit.

In short, eat here you will love it!

The food and service was stellar! It is a must for any lover of French cuisine. The atmosphere is amazing, you almost feel that you are no lingering Byron and have been transported to Europe ! Such a nice little escape. The steak tartare is out of this world! Highly recommended that everyone should try this dish at least once!
