Upmarket pub meals that offer more than your average bistro. A great lunch enjoyed by all in a very rustic set up.

Description
L’Hotel Gitan, the latest restaurant from the Reymond family, offers a seasonal dining experience in the heart of Prahran. A more casual affair than its sister restaurant, Bistro Gitan, L’Hotel serves classical, yet innovative French fare. Paying homage to the gypsy travellers of Europe, the menu is liberally seeded with European influences, all working seamlessly together to create an experience that leaves a lasting impression.
