This business has been closed for 2 years. The once charming building has been covered with graffiti and posters. It has recently been sold and is now being renovated - for what wait and see!

We stepped in expecting nothing but a decent meal, we ended up with a surprisingly nice supper and a bunch of good memories. The staff is friendly and diligent, no more than 10min wait per dish. Amazing wine list. We had steak, fried potatoes, and...More

Madame Sousou is shut for massive rebuilding. Prior to shutting earlier this year the food quality had dropped and the prices had gone up. Service varied from delightful to forgetful. A great new French Bistro has opened further South on Brunswick St -Bon Ap.

specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality
vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best
thing to buying. Gertrude Street is famous for its
