Well I heard that there was a 3 month wait to get Into this place but we got in the next day after ringing in. We arrived at 07.25PM and were happily greeted and quickly seated the first thing I noticed was how much bigger the place looked from the outside! At 0730pm water was given and drink orders taken quickly, both the wife and I went with the tasting menu and had accompanying premium wines, and I just had a whole bunch of amazing cocktails. 0740 first drinks quickly came out and over the next 15minutes we were complimented with delicious appetizers from the kitchen as we waited for our menu to began. Now before I continue I gotta say the table cloths there were a work of art! So WHITE and so flat incredible OCD level perfection! Now at 8pm our first dish arrived a beautiful colourful Gazpacho! Simple clean flavours and beautiful but the soup it self delicious. Over the next few hours our subsequent meals came out each coming with its own complimentary wine, and each dish arriving not to soon or not to late after the Last! The attention to detail here was incredible the waiters were masters of being present and helpful, but not smothering you. If you had a glass lying around boom it was gone, they were so aware of everything you needed. Lastly we finished on a Apricot sorbet with roasted apricot and merinque shards and cream. The flavours again felt so clean yet married so easy. We finished our experience with a delicious cup of tea served in the most delightful teapots. All in all this whole experience set us back about $600, but for the true foodie it was totally worth It, with the knowledge of staff service and quality of food easily being worth that. They even offered to arrange Taxi for guests should they require it. Truly a great experience thank you French Cafe!

Excellent, one of the best restaurants I have visited both here and overseas.  The service is exceptional, the wait staff are professional and know their stuff.  From the moment you walk in you are completely looked after and guided through the gorgeous dishes and wine list.  We opted for the Tasting Menu with matching wines - WOW, would highly recommend.  All of the dishes were amazing and showcased all of the ingredients superbly - could not fault any of them.  The wine matches were great and thoroughly enjoyed - even by the beer drinkers! In terms of the cost, I think that given the quality and quantity coupled with the general experience it was fantastic and well worth it.  Would highly recommend.

Most dishes are ok. Great service. An ant was found on our table, ummmm, but not a big deal~  My partner and I enjoyed the food and except better next time.

We added in oysters to our degustation and wow, what a decision that was! Wait staff very attentive, food timed to perfection and the evening just disappeared! After the wallet was made a lot, LOT lighter we walked away justifying it to ourselves. We did and we would do it again... in a few years
