Delicious French food. My fish pie was wonderful and tasty and was served with a fresh salad. The meal was large and hot. The coffee was also good. The service was excellent. Well worth a visit. The cakes looked wonderful too.

Friendly service, lovely food and a great vibe. The Breakfast Cassoulet was delicious and the pastries melted in our mouths.

Lovely French toast, lunches and pastries. Very busy and a little noisy but great vibe! Loved the tea served in glass tea pots on wooden boards with details about tea.

People rave about the patisserie on offer here – prepared daily by French trained chefs. And certainly it looks good and properly made. Those in our party who tucked into the sweet cakes and the like enjoyed them and lauded the place. I stick to coffee so my impression is rather more muted. This French café cum bistro has operated...

Stopped in for breakfast today and enjoyed a fabulous omelette, good coffee and a read of the paper. Always nice service and a delicious range of food - albeit not necessarily the standard kiwi breakfast fare (it is a French cafe, after all). I am also very partial to the French onion soup and took home a ham hock terrine.... More

La cloche is a lovely place to go and a busy place to go because it is a place where you can go and sit down in the sun and have a french dessert and coffee while drinking coffee. When ever I go to La cloche there is something no table because La cloche is that popular so we just... More

This is a relaxed lovely spot. A great place to sit down, sip coffee, eat and people-watch. Has a local vibe even though on a main road. The pastry display is very tempting (not good for those committed to new year's resolutions), the coffee is excellent and the menu items are delicious. Recommend the Croque-Monsieur/Madame and any of the salads.... More

After today's visit, we decided to come more often. We like the 'neighbourhood' vibe of this cafe, the French waiting staff, and the great choice of food. Today we chose from the choices in the cabinet - we had no trouble following the board menu, but we weren't that hungry. Mine was a light, choux type casing, filled with fresh... More
