We had a very light lunch here. It was fine. The service was cheerful, water glasses were replenished frequently.

Now for $32 for one duck leg, you would assume it would be pretty good. Single duck leg was extremely hot, but was resting on a bed of cold and soggy french fries, with a poor... More

We popped in for a coffee at first but their selection of "crepes" made me ordering "le tatin" and I'm not disappointed, so tasty and authentic. My husband had a creme brûlée and also enjoyed it. There is room for improvement when it comes to service otherwise place to recommend.

Really enjoyed the food here. We shared the baked Camembert which was delicious. Then we both had the salmon with ratatouille. We shared the lemon meringue sundae to finish. Nice selection of wines,will try a cocktail next time.

A great location and atmosphere. We stopped here for a quick bite and coffee but should go back for a full meal so we can get the full experience.

Just like stepping out in any French provincial town to enjoy authentic hospitality, service, food and drink. We love this venue and balmy summer evenings at an outdoor table with beautiful French food and wine doesn't come any better.

French Martini restaurant is well situated on the Little Stanley Street strip of Brisbane's Southbank, close to Ferry and public transport access. The menu was very limited with only a handful of main course options, and on the night we were there, they advised us one of the few options was run out and not available. The service was very...
