The mains were okay (I'd give them a three) but the desserts were to die for (I'd give them a five). We had the signature dish and the chocolate dish. Both were amazing!

Had high expectations as many places including our accommodation recommended this restaurant. The inside of the restaurant is very pleasing on the eye and it also feels a little French. Menu is quite extensive and includes vegetarian options. The food tasted nice but at the...same time not outstanding. Unfortunately the service was where we felt let down. Forgot to bring one of the sides we ordered, forgot the wine and to top it off - received the bill without asking for it! Not sure why they wanted us out the door?? Nobody asked for dessert - the bill just got dropped on our table!More

What a great little bistro. As soon as you walk in, there’s someone to great you, and take you straight to your table. The food is incredibly flavorsome. I started with the asparagus. My wife had the king prawns. Excellent entrees. Mains, I had the...trout, my wife had the gnocchi. Omg. The flavors. Lovely presentation. Tasty. Both plates were polished, not literally, needed more bread for that, which would’ve been delicious. My wife then had the honey Panacotta, while I had the lemoncello cannele. Excellent desserts. If your a big eater, this may not suit you, as the servings aren’t large. But both my wife and I walked out a little over our comfort levels. But the food was too lovely not to eat the entire plate. I wouldn’t hesitate on recommending this place to anyone. We’ll be back when next in Beechworth.More

This is a fine little bistro with a small but wonderful menu with a good selection of local wines. Staff were very attentive and services was very quick.  Could not fault.

We had excellent food and service here. I had the asparagus for entree followed by the risotto. All very well cooked and presented with a wine from a good local selection. Great service and friendly staff. Impressive restaurant in a beautiful country town.

It is really difficult to obtain a booking in Beechworth so please book before arrival. This is a tiny restaurant but they managed to squeeze us in within COVID safety. and this was on a Monday!! You could not criticise the quality of the meals,...they were delicious, but the quantities were a little small for my taste although I had two main courses. The pasta dish was stunning.More
