    It was my first visit to Jardin St James - a delightful surprise. Our waiter was excellent - bit hard to find where to enter the restaurant as macquarie Street side not the address - Kitchen staff didn't seem to want to help us find the entrance - but we found it in the end. Delightful cafe would return.

    The food and wine was excellent, but the real highlight was the wonderful staff, who were really friendly and accommodating.

    Jardin is the must go to experience in Sydney. 10 out of 10 for Position, Service, Ambience and Food. Booking is a breeze and the Coffee is superb.

    Expected more from the galette but was very rich and a big soggy. Loved the atmosphere

    Love this place. Service was very pleasant but a bit slow. This may be because they are understaffed - but the wait staff were delightful.

    Nice relaxing place. Food was delicious northern French Galette and a fantastic beetroot salad. Wine very reasonable and came in a carafe which was very European. Just a slight criticism that the staff need to keep a closer eye on the tables as they pass around. Other than that a super lunch.

    Great place to meet a friend for brunch or lunch. Food delicious and staff very friendly. Tables too close and very noisy.

    Word will soon get out about this undiscovered gem, especially the crypt under the church.

    What a special little place in the middle of the city! Beautiful, if unusual, surroundings! The French fare was tasty and reasonably priced. Staff couldn't have been more helpful and pleasant. Definitely a place to return to!

    Jardin is a favourite of mine and I have now lunched there at least 10 times. I have also taken friends there who have then returned with other friends/family. The welcome is always warm, the service charming, and the food is delicious. I particularly love the salads.
