Second visit for us and we were as impressed as we were the first time.
We are French and sitting at Isabelle's table reminds us of the family Sunday lunches back home.
The food is amazing, made from scratch and the view from the terrace is great.
Make sure you try the mains like the Boeuf Bourguignon !
Definitely a must go when visiting Mount Tamborine and even worth the drive from the Gold Coast or Brisbane.

My partner and I decided to take the trip on a saturday lunchtime to try out the crepes at this restaurant which had received good reviews and I was excited by the prospect of trying some authentic food! Firstly, we did not get served for atleast 10 minutes and it was only because I went up and asked to order that my order was taken (I was under the impression it was table service). Then came the drinks. For $5 I got a glass of what could have been plain tap water and a shot of cordial. My partner got a watery glass of milk with some flavouring in it aswell for a higher price. Not a good start. Secondly, the food. I ordered a smoked salmon crepe which was supposed to be served with sour cream and capers. What I got was a smoked salmon crepe with a disgusting amount of cold pouring cream drowning it on my plate. Now I am no chef but I am sure I know the difference between the two. My partner's order was better, atleast it was warm. On leaving, the owner asked how everything was and I mentioned the cream instead of sour cream and she ignored me! I was not at all impressed with the service (atleast the young girl and guy smiled) or the food! The only saving grace was the views its a shame the whole experience was a disappointment. Will not be returning anytime soon.

we ordered coffee and scones and were advised we could not pay until we were leaving. On departure we tried to pay with cash only to be advised she did not have cash so we would have to use our Card. As we were tourists we did not have an eftpos card and only had cash on us. She quite rudely told us she is not a bank and does not have cash. Our Australian friends used their eftpos card. In all my travelling, I have never struck this so warn anyone going there to check before ordering if you want to use cash.

Not particularly looking for French cuisine - we were drawn in by the 'best scones' and 'art gallery' signage. Ordered a 'devonshire tea' (with a coffee) and two cups of hot chocolate. Scones with jam & cream arrived at the table, and the first of the drinks arrived almost 10 minutes later. I wonder how hard it can be for a restaurant to et such basic timing right? The hot chocolates were very weak and left us feeling somewhat dissatisfied. Definitely not the rich Belgian style we were expecting,and definitely not worth the $5.90 price point. We also felt let down by the service - very slow, with no attention to detail.
