“Love this seedy treasure”

Le Gaulois French Restaurant
Restaurant details
Reviewed 16 July 2016 via mobile

Thrice pleased guests is a good indicator that consistency and quality are important to the owner.
Sure, the dining room is a bit delapidated and dusty.
Sure, the staff are a little inexperienced with wine knowledge and full wine service.
The faults contribute to the charm. It's a little quirky. It's welcoming. It's comfortable.
The menu is scattered with mostly traditional French dishes. Nothing too fancy. The presentation is definitely not fancy. A little tacky to be honest. Although a night here can remind one of 1983, it's not a negative. It's a novelty.
The steak is always perfect. The sauces are too. Entree choices are prawn heavy but you can also find snails. The wine list is confident.
There's much to enjoy and the service is unobtrusive.
A lovely place for a romantic dinner with your honey (maybe not a first date) or an intimate evening with a small group of friends.

Had dinner here on a Wednesday. Our 11yo daughter was in awe of the waiter's attentiveness (as were the adults). The food was delicious; the wine (a merlot), faultless.
We look forward to visiting this little treasure again!

A delightful small French gem tucked away in suburban Melbourne. Have been here many times over the years and have always been satisfied. 1. Service is attentive and not over bearing 2. Food is of a high quality and standard (the eye fillet is always cooked just right) 3. Portions of food are decent sizes AND vegetables are included with mains 4. The noise level is at a level where one can converse without shouting 5. The prices are not outrageous and 6. Ambience is cozy. Highly recommended.
