We picked out the âGypsyâ bistro on a whim, having a penchant for French food and wanting something within walking distance to where we were staying. We were so glad we did! Located in a beautiful old building, the ambience is warm, welcoming and chic simplicity. Thereâs no haughtiness in the authentic French service here, either â from our greeting at the door, throughout our meal and up to being helped into our jackets on the way out, we loved it and couldnât fault it. Hubbie even managed to get himself a bit tangled up getting his second sleeve on and the staff member assisting gently guided his arm into place, while we all shared a giggle. The dim candlelight means you do have to peer closely at the menu if youâre approaching the senior end of lifeâs spectrum but it makes for a beautiful glow, very flattering ;-) Superbly crusty baguette to nibble on was much appreciated, though the butter portion could have been a tiny bit more generous (note: this is my only minor criticism of the entire meal!). The regular menu holds many traditional delights, beautifully supported by the temptations of the blackboard specials. Hubbieâs escargots were served in traditional, garlicky style and pronounced delish. I opted to start with the pepperberry liver parfait and what a gastronomically divine experience it was. The little pot of silky smooth parfait was exquisitely flavoursome, the richness beautifully cut by the crowning mixture of pickles, and there was a veritable mountain of wickedly unctuous, wafer thin toasts to spread it on. Choosing our mains was no easy task â the scotch fillet on the regular menu beckoned (in no small part because it included chips!) but the Bavette a la Bordelaise from the blackboard was also begging attention. Eventually we opted for one of each and both were excellent, though Iâd have to say the bavette, a meltingly tender slab of flank steak, liberally anointed with red wine sauce was probably the winner by a slim margin. A shared side of salad leaves was all the extra we needed. The wine list is most impressive and if you had the notion to do so, you could cause serious harm to your bank account with some of the offerings. However, thereâs more than a sprinkling of good, solid wines at highly realistic prices and thereâs also the option of wine by the glass, and in small and medium sized carafes. Although we were quite full, hubbie managed the super light, citrus meringue tart, served with a quenelle of tangy calamansi sorbet. A delicious, out-of-the-ordinary quince liqueur rounded things out nicely. We were impressed at the excellent value for one of the best meals weâve had in a long time!Thank you for joining us at Bistro Gitan, and for passing along your lovely feedback. We endeavour to offer the highest standards of food and service, and it's wonderful to hear that your expectations of the Bistro were matched. We hope that we'll see you again soon for another delicious meal. Best wishes, Bistro Gitan team

Bouzy Rouge Richmond, Mediterranean inspired cuisine. We have an extensive tapas and main course menu designed to share.Extensive wine list. Express lunch Monday to Friday $20. With a Private function space upstairs and all weather courtyard, we cater for
First time dining at this great little restaurant. Last minute booking to try something local. The booking had been overlooked but lucky they did have a table for 2. We chose the Sunday special which was great value. Paella and Sangria for two.The meal was served quite fast, sizzling hot and full of seafood and really tasty. Sangria was served in a jug and quite generous. The restaurant ambiance, the decoration and the staff were all v. good. Will definitely return to sample more of the menu. Not necessarily fine dining but good tasty food in a pleasant and congenial atmosphere.

Woodland House is the collaboration between two of Melbourne's finest young chefs, Thomas Woods and Hayden McFarland. A united culinary force, they have created an innovative, energetic and produce-based cuisine of their very own.
We at the degustation menu with matching wines ... from start to finish we were underwhelmed by both the food and service. The whole place lacks atmosphere: soulless grey decor. The waiting staff were well-meaning but not up to the standard I expect from a restaurant of this standard. Of all the staff we saw, one was a native English speaker (and he didnât serve us) the rest were heavily accented, which made it hard to discern what we were being fed. We repeatedly referred to the menu for hints. A couple of the waiting staff also seemed very inexperienced and couldnât respond to relatively simple questions from us and other patrons. One Chinese couple, with excellent English, tried to make a request about the cheese course but eventually gave up trying to make themselves understood. One exception to this was the Italian (I think) sommelier who was articulate and well-informed (though I didnât agree with some of the pairings!).The menu seemed oddly sparse in information. The main ingredient in the poached calamari, for example, was poached fennel. This was quite tasty, but also a complete surprise. Why not mention it?!The food itself was variable, to say the least. A couple of quite interesting tastes - the scallop was lovely, as was the wallaby, but much of it was bland and/or under-seasoned. Not worth the money by any measure.Having recently been to Attica, which has some similarities in terms of menu style, we had high hopes of another evening of delicious food and informative service. This delivered neither. Save your money and go somewhere else - or getting organised (and get saving) and go to Attica if you want food and service worth the price tag.

A small, but outstanding restaurant with some interesting ideas on modern French food. The table service was top-notch and whilst the food wasn't cheap, it represented good value for money. Wine selection was also first class and suggestions made by the waiter regarding which wines to have with our meals were considered and worthwhile. This establish is well worth a visit- go ahead and book it!

Chez Olivier at its new location is really singing! Our experience was great from beginning to end. Service is efficient and timely and very friendly (all the waiting staff had a smile ready). An interesting menu: we had a goats cheese entre wrapped in filo surrounded by a light salad, followed by the confit of duck. Both were delicious and well balanced. The wine list was adequate, although I would have expected to see a few more Burgundy wines on the list. No table cloths but it did have cloth napkins. The restaurant was very popular on the night we were there, and rightly so. A top destination.

An elegant restaurant with lovely starched white tablecloths. Very quiet even though it's on Toorak Road. A great menu with European, Asian and modern Australian dishes. They also have a set luncheon menu of two or three courses including a glass of wine. Amazing souffles, light as a feather. All beautifully presented and delicious. They also have private function rooms upstairs. Will definitely return.

Our 'local' turned out to e a highlight of our Melbourne stay. From the minute we stepped inside this tiny [27 sq m!] restaurant we felt at home. Our waitress, Carolina, was a gem - ensuring always that we had enough water and wine, and were enjoying our food, without ever being intrusive. Everything is made on the premises and served up with Italian music in the background. Just fabulous and can't be recommended highly enough.

Enjoy the ambience of a night in a buzzing French bistro in Melbourne without the jet lag. We aim to make your experience completely enjoyable.
Bistro Thierry delivered a great experience for our special occasion. Met warmly at the door, we were shown to a good table and assisted with some parcels and jackets. We had actually looked at the online menu (both food and wine) and decided what we wanted, so ordering was easy. Drinks were served quickly and with friendly efficiency. The fit out of Thierry's is something of a draw card in itself - certainly takes you to Paris! Our food was top quality - particularly the lamb shoulder: melt in the mouth texture. I can see why it is rated so highly, and would certainly support that.We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your BT experience. Customer satisfaction is our number one goal so it is great to learn this has been achieved on this occasion. We look forward to welcoming you back. Merci beaucoup!
