11 Toorak Road, South Yarra


Everyday 12 noon - 12am

Those who appreciate more traditional French fare in an atmosphere that’s equally as French, continue to come to this Melbourne culinary institution for more than 25 years. Offering an authentic Parisian dining experience, it’s not surprising that bookings are required and the place is completely full, bustling, and almost raucous, particularly at night. In this compact restaurant, located at 11 Toorak Road, South Yarra (a few doors from Punt Road), it’s as much about expert service as the delightfully theatrical manners of the French-speaking waiters who deftly weave around close-set tables. If you are thinking of a quiet intimate dining experience, it’s probably best to think lunch rather than dinner.

Daily specials could read pork, rabbit and charcuterie. Oysters are opened to order and the house-made pork and veal sausages are beautifully presented in a pool of luscious mustard sauce. Or try the leek tart that is rich and buttery, yet extraordinarily light. The best steak frites in town might be a char-grilled serving of grass-fed Angus from the restaurant’s organic beef farm with delicate mousse-like béarnaise and crisp, golden fries. To finish, if there’s room, crème brulee!
