This place is great - if you can get a seat! It really needs more tables and space. It's also a bit awkward, as everyone queues up in front of the cabinets so it's hard to peruse the options. But, if you go a bit...More

We could have been in a cafe in France ...it looks nothing from the outside in a industrial area but when you come inside its warm and welcoming. Very popular and you can see why . The food is very authentic.....tasty and beautifully presented.

Was there for brunch. The food is fresh & well presented. Steak frites was cooked to perfection. Frites were crispy but not oily. Nice side salad & béarnaise sauce. Casserole du pecheur and boeuf bourguignon were equally good. Relaxed atmosphere & great service.

You'd think that given its location that not many people would dine here. Quite the opposite in fact, it always seems to be busy even though its nestled in the Kaiwharawhara Trading area. To be honest its a bit of a gem with the French...More

I love France! The next best thing to flying there is a visit to La Cloche. French language, delicious French pastries, a huge blackboard boasting an extraordinarily wide choice of meals, and then there's the good, strong coffee. Spacious, comfortable, airy with a stack of...More
