    The food, service and ambience in the new restaurant location, is as as always, one of the best in Canberra. Great business move to relocate to the Campbell Shops. So much more room

    We had a beautiful evening here and are very much looking forward to coming back. When we first arrived we felt slightly overlooked as the wait staff forgot to bring us our bread, and then brought out the amuse bouche (which we ordered in addition to the four course deg) and the first course and thr bread at the same time. However, after that point the service was fabulous and we were very well looked after. The food was delicious and we could not fault any of the flavours; each dish was well constructed and interesting. We were particularly impressed with the wine pairings which were perfect. Perhaps the nicest part of the evening was how welcomed we felt by the staff and other regular customers. Highly recommend for any couple or small group looking for a special evening.

    The ambiance is very very French at this little bistro sitting on its own in the refurbished suburb of Braddon. But locals know it well, so evenings and Saturdays can be quite busy. We had the place to ourselves for midweek lunch, yet never felt abandoned or an inconvenience. Quite the opposite. We indulged in a couple of signature cocktails (I recommend the L’Automne), and pork rillette and escargot starters. Zut alors, they were good! Main course was a shared Beef Wellington; perfectly done and surrounded with mushroom pieces and foie gras to separate the pastry and meat. With a recommended French Cabernet Franc to mix it up, we left sated and fulfilled in our goal to have an authentic experience in Canberra.

    Enjoyable evening with great food and service. However restaurant did not have our booking on their list. Copy of The Fork confirmation proved the booking arrangements.

About the restaurant

Parisian chic

Bringing a touch of Paris to Canberra is Les Bistronomes. The interior is simple with dark carpet, exposed brick walls, bare tables, a banquette down on side and red-striped chairs. Outside is a great big alfresco dining area surrounded by plants and herbs - a perfect little sanctuary for outdoor dining during spring/summer. The French bistro has a concise menu with entrees, mains, desserts and sides with classics like garlic snails, pork loin and duck a la orange making an appearance. It’s good food that’s been loved for generations, with a sprinkle of modern day finesse. With French wait staff manning the floor, this is the closest you'll get to a real Parisian experience on Aussie soil.

Best dish: Ratatouille Pithivier served with basil pistou & fine herbs salad
