It was 2 years since we last visited this restaurant. I did not review it at the time because I wanted to give it a second chance. Sadly the second experience was the same. Terrible decor, hardly French at all. Sloppy service. Tatty menus and...More

This is our favourite restaurant and we are always delighted by the excellent service and delicious meals. The presentation is memorable, the meat tender, the vegetables crisp and they can do spectacular potatoes in so many ways.

The restaurant has large floor area, high ceilings and plenty of glass, as such loses a bit of intamacy and a non french feel about it. However the menu takes you strongly down its French roots. Good selection of entrees including a stunning and generous...More

French food with a slight nz twist we had clams in a garlic broth/sauce accompanied with the best hand cut fries/chips I have ever had delicious. The dinner menu had more classic French dishes so would like to try these next time!

ile de france serves authentic French cuisine coupled with an extensive selection of wines from all over France. The atmosphere is rustic, cosy French style creating a lovely warm ambience in which to enjoy truly French cuisine made from fresh local ingredients and created by Chef Gilles Papst. French cuisine just as it should be, and just as you would eat in France... the ideal place to meet with good friends and linger over delicious food and wine.
