Beautiful French style food with terrific service. Really interesting wine list. All dishes were excellent and were a substantial serve.

Went for a belated Bastille Day lunch with a good friend. While not on the lunch menu, Ally and the chefs were very accommodating about letting us order the chive and raclette croquettes (which I have had before and had already raves about to my...friend). We shared them along with the shallot and goats cheese tart for entree. An amazing start!! We then shared the beef cheeks for main (sort of a deconstructed boeuf bourgignon) - rich and delicious. Dessert was also shared - chocolate fondant with croissant ice-cream. While the food was truly excellent (it wasn’t my first visit today and it definitely won’t be the last), it really was the service which made the difference today, and made the whole experience really special. Thank you!More

My wife and I had been looking forward to celebrating my Birthday at this restaurant. My wife has a shell fish Allergy but when we looked at the menu before going we noted that they did not have many shellfish items on the menu and...lots for her to choose from. When we got there, not only where we disappointed but one of their signature dishes was not on offer, they only had 1 left of another dish and half the menu we were told we could not have as they deep fry it all together, when we questioned the fact that they promote items as being Gluten free and Vegetarian, how can this be if we order this food they said that the friers are together and that they are cross contaminated so there for we cant say its ok. We had ordered charcuterie board at that stage of which even some of that was not acceptable. Mind you it was the worst displayed board I had ever seen. So with that in mind our only option was to finish our glass of wine, pay our $60 for crap and leave. The waitress could not have been happier when we said we were leaving. Very disappointing and we will not be back. Went to Scilly in Rundle street and had a great rest of the night.More

Hi there, we do our very best to cater for all allergies and believe us there are allot these days. As you mentioned we do have a large menu so we do run out of things from time to time. Our fryers are not 'cross...More

Fantastic restaurant which lives up to the great reviews and reputation. Not too big, on a busy night one very efficient server looked after us. Decor and ambience are warm and welcoming. Great menu options/ specials and accompanying wine list. Shared starters were generous in...portion and full of flavour. We were hungry and grateful they came out so quickly. OMG The pork scratchings are life changing!!! Delicious desserts. We appreciated the service and pace of the evening, never feeling rushed and with just the right amount of attention. Highly recommend if you’re ever in Adelaide.More

Late decision made on a Friday evening, no issues with fitting us in for an early dinner. The truffle sausage and pork crackling hair on the Charcuterie platter to start were great and moorish and the pate well whole different level. Followed by the Cassoulet...was rich, tasty full of beans, duck and pork sausage. Downed with some great French red wine and to end with the house crème Brule.......Yes must put this place on my return list......More

Was very much looking forward to trying this place. Sadly it didn’t live up expectations. I understand COVID has changed things, we were told when booking that you have 2 hours to complete your meal. We arrived 5 minutes early and were seated by polite...staff. Ten minutes after being seated we ordered our meal, we asked if we could have a 20 minute break between entree and main, we were told if they had time and were again reminded of the 2 hour limit, but we were told may 15 minutes. Our mains came out and were as hot as Lava so we couldn’t even attempt to eat them for 15 minutes. My husband had the Bean Cassoulet with duck which was quite bland in flavour; the seafood bouillabaisse I ate was nice but not fabulous. Our plates were taken after main and desert menus were immediately dropped on the table and we were again told no pressure but times up soon, so if you want desert don’t wait. We didn’t have desert as we were over being rushed. Wouldn’t go back for dinner, maybe a lunch?More

It was delightful and delicious. Ordered 4 entrées to share. Service was good. Even the visit to the toilet was nice. Clean and real towels!! The French wine was delicious. No room for desert, however will be returning just for desert menu.
