Lovely old church renovated To celebrate the owners French Origins. We went on a very hot day and had our request for a cooler spot accommodated by the staff opening up a separate section so our elderly guests could dine in comfort. Food was classic French with tarts, quiches and terrines on offer as well as many other options. Great coffee and French cakes to follow. Catering for weddings also noted. Lovely french style court yard also available when not so hot. Or waiter served us with an a lovely mix of being very capable with a dry humour. We had a memorable lunch and will return.

This place has a nice feel and was ideal for our group in a private room. Food is simple, light and quite small although the price does reflect this. Service was fine with the exception of younger wait staff who tended to be forgetful. Training required perhaps, as a request for more crackers for our shared cheese platter was not only a long time coming (forgotten the first request), but when it arrived, was a stingy amount. Overall everyone seemed to enjoy their meals, but nothing was really a standout. Could be so much better.

L'Auberge is in an old church circa 150 years old and the inside is very nice and cosy. We had lunch for 10 including 4 kids and it was ideal. The food options are a bit different to your normal Melbourne cafe, focussing on a French style, which I liked. The food was great value and I would recommend it for a visit.

We had a wonderful evening thanks to the very accommodating staff at L'Auberge and the beautiful venue. 32 of us celebrated our end of year club event with divine food with generous servings. Everyone enjoyed it and no-one went hungry. All topped off with friendly and helpful service. I certainly recommend L'Auberge and will be back to explore the menu further.

Hubby and I had lunch here with our kids on Sunday, after cherry picking in Coldstream. We were incredibly impressed with the atmospheric building, in a lovely setting in Lilydale (close to a playground). The staff were very kind in accommodating our kiddies meal preferences, and we were all really impressed with our food (I ate the Blue Cheese Tart, and loved it!). As we were already quite stuffed full of cherries, we didn't have room for cakes afterwards, but I really wish that we had - there were some amazingly decadent cakes that I would have loved to have eaten! We found this to be really reasonably priced too - $42 for the four of us. Will definitely return!
