    The cassoulet served tonight was superb and the vegetables served with it, delicious. It is a while since I enjoyed such cleverly crafted food. I also love that the restaurant is BYO.

    The service was fantastic and the food was exceptional. We felt welcome and the staff were not trying to hurry anybody. Try the baked camembert, spatchcock or cherry duck! The coffee was also really nice.

    Simple menu that represents well French cuisine. Although it's not a gastronomic affair here, dishes are cooked to the perfection. I had beef bourguignon and it was delicious. Service was professional. BYO only.

    The food was substandard and not a single staff member was French. I was also surprised to find they do not serve alcohol which was inconvenient as we had to find a bottle shop after we sat down at our table. The ambience is ok, although mostly senior citizens. I would never return to this place.

    A great little BYO restaurant we visited on the back of a great recommendation. It didn't disappoint. Cute atmosphere. A great list of French classics on the menu. Service was attentive but not overstated. But most importantly the food was delicious and beautifully presented. We all agreed that we needed to return several times to work our way through the menu. Thoroughly recommend it.

    Great food and service. Hard to find a nice reasonably priced French restaurant but this is it. Great to have BYO as well. Lovely couple that run the restaurant also. Would recommend this place.

    Very traditional French food. Lots of dishes with creamy sauces or olive oil with garlic, parsley chilli etc. if you like that type of fare you will love this restaurant. Service was attentive but not over-bearing. Over-all a big thumbs up! ????

    Always a pleasure to dine at La Saveur. The chicken roulade is fabulous along with the duck. The pate is to die for. Nothing to fault. Happy to eat there again and again.

    The food was amazing! We went as a group of 12 and the food came out on time and altogether. The pâté was outstanding as was the Cherry Duck. The profiteroles were light and delicious. I’m looking forward to going again soon. A gem in Balmain!

    Really enjoyed our meal - the escargot, cassoulet and Fish pie were excellent. Desserts were a bit disappointing in comparison.

    Food was nice, service good, atmos okay (a little too brightly lit imo...). Mais il n'y avait pas beaucoup de ``vrai français'' à l'endroit, c'est dommage ...

    It was a Monday, we were the only people in the venue and we were half an hour early but we were treated like welcome guests. Delightful duck and fish dishes, a superb salad with heirloom carrots and a beautiful dressing. The profiteroles were crisp and the coffee strong and rich.
