A gastronomic delight in the heart of Sydney. First reaction, you’re immediately taken back into the 1930’s with a heavy French flair and consistent comfort cuisine with a mind-blowing wine cellar to match.
What makes this place special is that it’s quite unique in it’s own right and not pretentious. It delivers on it’s promises of good food and an eclectic and well balanced wines form new world and old world regions. The service is very attentive and at the same time very unassuming, where you can relax and be yourself and everything just happens around you. The décor and feel of the place definitely has a 1930’s underground “French Resistance” vibe about it, with it’s grand piano on stage, lots’ of dark timber, candles and low lighting and even a grand theatre. It also compliments small groups quite well.
One of the perks is that they also serve late-night food till 1am and you have a couple of separate speak easy bar options to relax and unwind within the premises. On the menu you will find anything from Sterling Caviar to Malakof Fried Gruyere, from Escargot XO Roasted Snails to Cote de Boeuf 1kg Rib Eye. The wine list has a boutique and eclectic flair with strong emphasis on Champagne and other French gems.
A must visit and a great place to unwind at the bar and enjoy their offerings. It’s just a place that once you sit down, you’re set for the night.
