“Fantastic in every way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013 via mobile

Impeccable food, service, value and atmosphere.
Every time we've been staff have been lovely. The food is always at a very high standard. I had the lemon sole on our last visit and it was AMAZING! Snails for entree are great too and my partner reports that the steak is always perfectly cooked.
I can't believe that a place this amazing charges so little.

“Authentic and welcoming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

On a previous stay in the area, we had tried to get in to Bistro de Paris but they were fully booked. Last Tuesday, delayed enroute to our Bondi Junction hotel, we didn't know what we'd find still open, so we called the Bistro from the car and spoke to the owner, Fred. He assured us the chef would be cooking until 21:30, so as long we arrived by around 21:15 we would be fed. Parked at the door at 21:00 and entered a little bit of France on Australian soil. Knowing we'd just completed a 4 hour drive, Fred's lovely wife, Maureen, immediately offered us a cup of tea..."no thank you, but a Kir Royale would go down a treat!" We were then delighted to find a very interesting menu and wine list, all very reasonably priced. The excellent fish soup and escargot entrees were followed by a beautifully melting beef Bourgignon and "please make mine just past pink" duck breast, both from the daily specials board. Maureen recommended a bottle of French red on request and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. No pretence - menu in French with English subtitles, $5 per bottle corkage (yep, no mistake), Fred and Maureen gracious and welcoming hosts, English chef trained in Dordogne....what more could you ask for? If only we'd had time to return for their $25 2-course lunch!

“Good home style cooking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

Recently had a very pleasant evening with a group of friends at this little french find in bondi junction. Nice simply menu at very reasonable prices. Very friendly . Only one negative, ambiance not that great but hey, when out with friends it probably does not matter that much, maybe would be a problem if going for a romantic dinner. Will go again.
