    Warm welcome from gentleman and lady on arrival. We ordered arancini , fettuccine and angus beef with crispy risotto . The meals were lukewarm and lacked flavor . When you are paying 40 bucks for angus beef, you expect the meal to be hot. The crispy risotto was the filling from the arancini balls In a rectangular shape . The restaurant was busy , but not at capacity , so unsure why all meals were not hot on arrival . We did not say anything as we were starving and also too embarrassed to complain .

    A lovely venue and the food was even more delicious than the menu made it sound.

    Little Jean

    Delicious dinner. Lovely sitting outside. Snapper and eye fillet were amazing. Sides excellent. Would definitely recommend

    Little Jean

    Hi Michelle, Thank you for being such a lovely and loyal returning customer. Just a quick question - our atmosphere rating always lands on average around the 8 mark. Any idea what we could do in order to rectify this and get it a little higher? Thank you, Little Jean.

    Lovely simple fare tucked away in an arcade/pedestrian mall off the main strip. I had complete order envy of my husband’s steak dish. I found it slightly strange that the slow braised leeks with my fish dish were cold, slightly at odds with the rest of the food on the plate. Shared a reliably good chocolate fondant at the end which capped off the meal nicely.

    Little Jean

    Hi there Georgia, We are really sorry that you seem to have had a rather average dining experience with us here at Little Jean. We would really like to rectify this for you, and was wondering if you could perhaps give us an Email at some point to discuss a few ideas we have for this? Take care Georgia, LJ.

    Cute little restaurant with good service and varied menu. Food was decent and enjoyable. A good little find in the area if needing somewhere local.

    Little Jean

    Hello Alexander, Thank you for taking the time out of your day to write about your experience with us here at Little Jean.

    The cafe is situated in a lively complex with lots of other eateries. Service was not bad. On the other hand the food is pretty much standard but definitely a place to just catch up with friends over coffee.

    Little Jean

    Hi Gigi, Thank you for your review here on Fork. We appreciate the time out of your day and the words you wrote - customer feedback is an important part of any business and helps us grow and improve our services. In this regard, is there anything in particular that made our food ‘standard’, and is there anything in particular we can look at improving regarding our service/wait staff? Thank you very much for your time and honesty. We do hope you’ll get back to us soon and let us know how we can drag you in for dinner :) Little Jean.

    Wonderful food! Everything was perfect. Flavour, texture etc. Service was top notch from our waitress Kylie. Could not fault food or service. They didn’t have the lamb shoulder which I specifically went for but understand it’s more of a winter food. Will be back for it though! The Twinwoods 2016 cab sauv was AMAZINGLY smooth-my kind of wine! Restaurant is a little loud and I’d like to see table cloths but it’s meant to be that rustic look I think... but the food is fine dining quality with better portion sizes.

    We were greeted warmly and the host knew immediately that I had allergies without referring to the screen. Service was lovely as was the food. Thank you for another great experience.

About the restaurant

Say hello to Little Jean

Slotting in nicely to the backstreets of Double Bay is Little Jean. And yes, she is little, with just eighty seats in total. But despite its small space, she doesn’t feel squishy. Like the food, the decor is simple and modern with copper light fittings, white walls, timber finishes and branches in large vases making up much of the interior. Open for breakfast from 7am - and more importantly for coffee at 6:30am, Little Jean also offers lunch daily and is open for dinner from Tuesday to Sunday too. With About Life, Woolworths and The Golden Sheaf all within metres, foot traffic around this little gem is high, but there’s usually enough seats to go around. Sit inside and salivate over the cabinet of house-baked pastries, or dine outside where you will be kept warm by heaters in the winter and feel the sun streaming on your face come summer. This is a sleek and breezy venue that's perfect for intimate dinners, weekend brunches and family affairs. Come one, come all.

Best Dish: Salmon, Cauliflower, tahini yoghurt, surmac, walnut, coriander
