“Authentic French in the Eastern Suburbs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

Frenchy's is in the heart of 'The Glen' in Glen Waverley - an easy train ride from the City. You enter through the shopping centre but once inside, you enter a different world. It's a French bistro, here! The menu is classical French, with most of what you might expect - escargots (gorgeous and generous), pate, steak frites, canard a l'orange, veal, beef burgundy pie, and so on. Good service, good food, good time. Perhaps a touch too much salt in one or two dishes - but that's a French trait too and doesn't spoil the experience. There's an attractive wine list too, though not many wines by the glass - but you can bring your own, we observed. Oh - I forgot the chocolate souffle for desert - order it when your mains arrive!

“Our favourite French restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

We are regulars at Frenchy's. Love the food and the service is excellent
A two course lunch is just $30 and great value with generous serves.
The atmosphere is very like the bistros in Paris with crisp napkins and white tablecloths.
Klaus and Michel are always there to greet you and make you feel a little special

“steak, frites - magnifique”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

We went in a large group and had three courses each. There was not one complaint from any of us. I had oysters, porterhouse and chips and liquorice ice cream. Each course was excellent. The bistro is run by a Parisian who takes care with his ingredients and has flair in his cooking.

“Fantastic service - incredible food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

The exterior does not match the experience inside. What a fantastic night - attentive, friendly, helpful waitstaff + an incredible foodie experience.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Duck. The Slow cooked Ox Cheeks are a must to try as well.

Try to keep enough room in your belly so you can have a starter as well....or dessert. I had the creme brule - scrumptious & enough to share. If you have a little more time try the souffle.

Sit back & enjoy the experience!
