Good french style restaurant. Lovely atmosphere. Wine was very good. We had a duck liver patè, two well cooked beef filets and a duck confit which didn't stand expectation. Servings just right.

Great dinner at d’Orsay. Great food, good wine list, excellent service and lovely atmosphere. I was reminded how restaurants used to be before the ‘foodie’ revolution... No pretence, no food trickery... just a great restaurant.

Our 2nd time visiting Bistrot D'orsay and it did not disappoint. The food is delicious with quite large serves. The service was great, friendly and attentive. A small place with a wonderful, warm atmosphere.

The Bistrot d'Orsay serves mainly French style food, accompanied by fine French and Australian wines. We started off with a charcuterie board, mainly ham and salami. I ordered coq au vin, a classic French dish (chicken with wine) and my dining companion ordered linguine marinara...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

Bistrot d'Orsay has been situated in picturesque Collins Street for 20 years, in an area regarded as the ‘Paris End’. The interior is instantly evocative of the French capital with trompe l’oeil ceiling and a towering vintage French poster adorning the dining room. Dark wood paneling and soft lighting completes the picture. Lunch and dinner menus are provençal Mediterranean with French bistro classics such as bouillabaisse and crème brûlée all prepared with flair. Dishes such as seafood linguini and risotto complement the Mediterranean style. With a spectacular view of the ornate Regent Theatre directly opposite, Bistrot d’Orsay can lay claim to one of the best views of any restaurant in Melbourne. The bistro has a multi-award winning, extensive wine list with expertly chosen selections from the best international and Australian/NZ regions.
