Great, fun French bistro in the CBD. A bit of an institution and a wonderful “regular”.

A marvellous taste of French decor, accents, service and most authentic food - right in the heart of Sydney. Attentive, friendly, helpful staff, wonderful french - good advice on a reasonably priced glass of wine to suit the meal - and the food is delicious. It is a shock to step out into Clarence street afterwards and realise you are back in Sydney again, after a delightful French escape...

Restaurant overall have a lovely atmosphere. Both me and my boyfriend had a good experience and thank you for organising a candle as it was his birthday. Staff are very friendly. Would recommend the place or revisit again in the future

About Bistro Papillon

French chic The dream of Bistro Papillon was established years ago when two Frenchmen found themselves working together in a restaurant in the UK. In 2010 this dream became a reality with the opening of Bistro Papillon in Sydney’s CBD. This rustic French restaurant is all about authentic and classic flavours. The restaurant tightly packed with dark wooden furnishing and retro French artwork (you feel as though you’ve wandered into a Parisian bistro). They have a menu devoted to French classics and restaurant ‘specialities’ where you will see the likes of escargots, tarte flambee, tartare de boeuf and onglet de boeuf. There is also a large a la carte menu which features a large selection of French faves like coq au vin, tarte tatin and lots of cheese.
