Too many people had recommended Cliche for us to ignore it any longer. And they were right. Food, service, atmosphere - tick, tick, tick.
The menu is fusion at its best. French-Vietnamese (now that's a combination made in heaven) food with attention to detail in flavour, texture and presentation. The best part is that you can order as you go so that you don't over eat in one section of the menu. We ended up sharing three entrees and a main course and then fighting over our portions of dessert. (Not really, but if we hadn't eaten so well already, we might have.)
They have a great wine list which offers a variety of styles in all colours from multiple regions local, national and international.
The staff member we interacted with most was vivacious without being too much and knew her stuff. Nothing was too much trouble. We didn't want to order too far in advance of what we were eating and while that meant three trips to the kitchen for her with various bits of our order, there wasn't a glimmer of exasperation or annoyance. How very refreshing.
And it's great value. We ate beef tartare, lobster, prawns, pork belly and souffle. We drank sidecars, pinot blanc and coffee. We had change from $200. Great night, too bad we waited so long!

Not a planned visit, didn't even know they existed till we needed to find an alternative when our chosen dinner spot was shut.

Very impressed. Greeted and sat quickly with a wine in front of us before we knew it. We ordered entree whilst we decided on mains. These too came out very quick, maybe a little too quick?

Our mains also arrived quite fast and all food was of an excellent standard. Highly recommend going to Cliché as we will definitely go again.

This was our third visit and each one has been great. The food is magnificent. The best Pate I have ever had and the Beef Cheeks are to die for.Our party shared the beef cheeks, Pork duck confit for mains with the pate, calamars and souffle for entree.Not a dud amongst them-- and you must have the brocollini side

Friends recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable. The food exquisite! Loved everything about this place. My specials meal of a Mushroom pastry with silverbeet and a champagne sauce was great and my partner beef cheek dish also perfect. Finished off with a souffle, what could be better!!
