I have been to Gavroche for my birthday for the last 3 years, the service was impeccable and the food was amazing. The flavours of the food have improved so much from the previous management. All my friends have been back a few times. Well done to Bryan and Thomas and their teams.

Ly and his staff were all very attentive and courteous. They topped up water and wine constantly, asked before removing or clearing items from table. The food was always so delicious. I recommend everyone to try everything on the menu.

Michele and his team looked after us very well, constantly checked on us if we needed more wines and water. The food were delicious and well presented. The wines were superb and always have some great wines not on the menu. We were there for almost 5 hours for lunch. Felt like home and family.

Beautiful Foie Gras cooked to perfection, Leeks Vinaigrette & Chopped Eggs very tasty, Pan-Roasted Rabbit With Sautéed Apple & Duchesse Potatoes was heavenly, Rangers Valley 270 Days Hanger Steak, Red Wine Shallots & Lyonnaise Potatoes medium rare the way it should be, well done chef.

Le Trader

Pyrmont

Richard dined on Sat, 30th Sep 2017 (7)

Been to Le Trader a few times but found out this time the management has changed. Service and kitchen staff are the same. Menu has changed a little but 'chinese' bar staff didn't know how to make an aperol or campari spritz, we were almost served sprite instead. Entrees were great, although they have replaced the prawns with scallops which were a little overcooked and the salmon was fully overcooked. On a positive note, the steak tartare was to die for. The two french service staff were very attentive.
