We had a party of 10 people, all very loud and demanding, 3 of the party were French, we all ordered based on our tastes, general opinion was that the food was as described, lots of flavor great presentation, prepared by a chief who knows what works well on the plate. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to... More

French food is one of our favourite cuisines. Unfortunately Le Chat Noir does not rate in my extensive experience. The other three diners were similarly disappointed. As a lover of snails it is always my first choice. However, the shells had been filled with something akin to sawdust which the snails very dry and tasteless. Probably the second worst snails...

Although the staff were a little inexperienced (we are in Terrigal) the place had a great vibe and the staff were very nice. Food was atypical French and it's worth a visit if you aren't going to fuss over minute details. I read a few reviews and I could imagine the types that wrote the bad ones.

We were staying in Terrigal for a romantic getaway and were excited to find a French Restaurant just near our hotel. We made a reservation and arrived expecting a great dining experience. Sadly this was not the case. We ordered wine and ask the waitress what region in Australia was the chardonnay from, she had no idea. We ordered assiette... More

Waited 30 mins before served. Another 30 before entree arrived. Then 30 mins later told there was a malfunction with ipad and main course was not ordered. Manager said we would still have to pay for entrees and wine. No offer of a deal for next night and didn't care our night was ruined.

We decided to visit Le Chat Noir on the last day of our Australian tour. We were shown to a nice table by the window overlooking the road which was fine. A very helpful young chap recommended a couple of local beers which were excellent. My husband and I both ordered the beef bourgignon, the beef was soft and tendered... More

The snails had hardly any butter in them, were served topsy turvy, very little garlic and coating of breadcrumbs, definitely not great. My steak, which I asked for medium rare was difficult to cut and tougher than the steak from the local club with luke warm chips. Had to send it back. The beef dish they replaced it with was...

A long way from Montmartre but this restaurant is a great find. The cuisine is just delectable and the quality of food is unquestionable. Congratulations to the staff and chefs, the latter whom we thanked personally as the kitchen is customer accessible. Always a good thing to be able to see the kitchen! Some have reported that the service is... More

Le Chat Noir is a delightful French restraint with delicious food served in a non-pretentious manner. The staff are so helpful and friendly. There is something for everyone and the duck confit I had was as good as any duck I have had when travelling in France. I also ordered a couple of sides but I would suggest if you... More
