We dropped in for a quick meal prior to the theatre, and were glad to have chosen this cafe. The service was excellent...always nice having French-speaking staff in a French restaurant in Oz...it lends an air of authenticity! Salmon Tartare and Duck Pate, washed down by a delicious, French Pinot Gris, and we were on our way in plenty of... More

We really enjoyed the French Martini. Great ambience, friendly, competent service, and a surprisingly braod menu, given the limited kitchen space.

Chose to go here, for our dinner after getting engaged. Entree was fine, service was good. we both ordered the Duck leg for main. 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.

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.
