    Could be one of the best french restaurants in Melbourne. I had the $55 lunch (with duck leg as main) plus "escargots" (snail ????), all of them taste really good. Waiters and waitresses are polite as well. I will come back again.

    The lunch special menu is a real bargain. The food and service were excellent and the accompanying wine was a good selection and a generous quantity. We are returning next week!

    Lovely dining experience, food was classic and of a consistently high standard. Staff were friendly and attentive Only small thing was my husband ordered chefs selection of oysters but staff offered no explanation as to which oyster was which, this we felt would have been a nice touch

    Enjoyed my evening meal I would have scored higher if the service was a little quicker in the beginning and there was a large table behind us with about eight children under ten down our end of their table Why would you not just take the kids to Pancake Parlour Thanks Ronald Rodger
