This is a charming place for a family meal. I had onion soup, then saucisson merguez with pearl couscous,a salad with a beautiful dressing and pommel frites, and finally a share of a summer pudding. All impeccably cooked, and accompanied by a glass of a...superb shiraz.It's a small restaurant with warm and friendly service and not too noisy like so many restaurants these days (although there was noisy and atrociously sung karaoke from The Olive Jar next door).More

Lovely feel to this restaurant as we were shown to our table. The owner / hostess very warm and welcoming. Interesting and varied menu, complete with excellent service from our french waitress, she was charming.

I'm not sure how this place calls itself a French restaurant. They pride themselves on serving steak with salad and fries. Very dissatisfying. I basically paid $40 for a fillet steak which sat looking very lonely on my plate. As for the fries and salad...served on the side. Truth be known I couldn't tell the difference between McDonalds fries and the $2 pre packed mix lettuce you get from the supermarket 😏. Other reviews speak highly. Maybe stick with their traditional snails and duck confit.More

My wife and I had this restaurant recommended to us a couple of years ago and get there when we can now despite having numerous French dining options closer to our South Yarra home. The family owned and run bistro is not only a culinary...delight but with father Chris and son Max heading up the kitchen and wife/mother Jenny managing everything out front you immediately feel welcome and it's like dining at the home of close friends. The escargot are excellent served in traditional ceramic trays with a welcome abundance of garlic and butter. Lovely French style bread to soak up the juices is a good start to dining here. On this occasion others at the table had Mussels, chicken liver pate and all were happy with their selections. On a cold Melbourne winter (just into Spring) night, what better main to have than Cassoulet with duck leg, sausage and beans. I've had this on three or four occasions here now and keep saying I will try something else (and have done) but am never disappointed to come back to the Cassoulet again....yum! For dessert the table shared a cheese plate with an excellent array of goat and cow milk varieties as well as a decadent chocolate pudding; rich and delicious. From the table of eight that we were on this occasion there was some disappointment that only one was able to have the slow cooked lamb (a table of 20 dining upstairs had taken the rest) and more than a couple of the wines we ordered from the wine list were unavailable but Chris welcomes BYO so keep this in mind if you have your favourite wines needed for an ideal accompaniment to an otherwise wonderful (casual) dining experience. Be prepared for quirky but loveable service from Jenny and a quaint but close downstairs dining area where conversations with neighbouring tables are a welcome (for me but not for everyone) norm. For bigger groups you can request the entire upstairs area, which I've also done with a group of 30. As always, I finish my restaurant reviews with would I go back? The answer to Moreton's Brasserie is a resounding yes, tomorrow.....and the next day and the next. Sadly lunch dining is only an option by special arrangement.More

This place is a gem and the staff are amazing. The food is divine and better steak than any I've eaten in any of my 8 visits to France. They make you feel like you are part of the family and are so accommodating to...special dietary requirements. It's a small intimate restaurant which has such a lovely feel. You could transport yourself to a small Michelin star restaurant in France very easily.More

Perfection on a plate. Everyone's meal was sublime and the confit of duck just monumentally good. Expect to be met like an old friend! I have never experienced such a combination of fine dining and hospitality.

Went with big expectations but the fish in a wrap was tasteless and the rig eye was tough. Would not go back

When in Melbourne, I frequent this restaurant run by a family, who make you feel like you are part of their family. The food is good, too.

Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way
