    Excellent food and wine but limited choices of main course - no lamb, duck or pork. Crowded and noisy and service was stretched at times. Still worth a visit.

    In a sincere and constructive spirit, this is my first less than positive review for this great restaurant. There are a few problems emerging: most of the familiar and friendly staff have been transferred to Frederick and the new wine list is far too esoteric. For reds, it features two Pinot Noirs (local and French) and only local and imported blends. For those of us who enjoy a bold and rich Shiraz or Cab Sav - forget it, You won’t find it here sadly. Not that long ago, this restaurant featured amazing reds from Heathcote. Bring back the good old days in terms of staff and wine,

    I eat out all the time and this is one of the best. food is 11 out of 10. wine choices are great. Hard to get a booking at a time that i like though. Either 6pm or 8.30 does not float my boat.

    Fabulous French restaurant just off Punt Rd. Plenty of parking in side streets. Food was amazing and beautifully presented. I opted for the lunch special that was a choice of two dishes plus glass of wine- fabulous!

    We had a great dinner at L’Hotel Gitan. A little bit neglected upon arrival and when we were seated. But it’s a crazy time of year and they were super busy. When we finally got our drinks it then proceeded on to become a really good night. Our waiter was super and the food was good. The two men were a little disappointed with the scotch fillet they ordered. They are both steak conossieurs so I respected their opinions. The cheese soufflé entree and the marlin special that I had were sublime. Restaurant ambience is vibey and I love the open kitchen. I would recommend this place without hesitation. Melissa

    Excellent food and service. Very noisy so don't go if you want an intimate conversation evening.

About the restaurant

Ticking every box

L’Hôtel Gitan is the perfect balance of elegance and nostalgia, backed by quality French cuisine, an experienced team and a hospitality legend. Inside this gorgeous eatery a striking open kitchen is the hero of the space, strategically positioned between the bistro and dining room so diners can spy on the kitchen activity. Patrons can sit at prominent teal banquettes or at bistro-style tables for a casual meal, book out the private dining space for a major function or relax in the outdoor dining area. Jacques Reymond’s menu, like the fit out, is based on hand-selecting the best. Diners can expect sustainable produce that respects the natural flavours. From seared scallop salad with natural Tasmanian salmon and passionfruit ceviche to Cape Grim grass-fed porterhouse steak with fries these guys have got it all. The wine list is a European vacation with appearances from Australia and New Zealand, alongside beers and cider, both on tap and in bottles. For a night that will tick every box imaginable come to the L'Hotel.

Best Dish: three pepper duck magret
