    Ate at the bar with a friend. Very comfortable, lovely staff. Charcuterie plate to share was a great starter, amazing pickles. Had the bar special, Lyonnaise sausage with mash and cabbage - very tasty, and excellent value with a glass of wine included ...

    One of the best French restaurant I have ever had. Ordered 9 dishes and nothing disappoint. Every single dish had its own distinctive taste. The beef cheeks were my favourite.

    (Translated by Google) In the downstairs of the alley, it is easy to find. It feels very comfortable from the entrance to the seat. The grandfather leads the seat and helps you adjust the position of the table. It is a fat French waitress who helps to order food, but the service is very general. Yes, it feels very comfortable. Ordered oysters, very recommended, very special! Very fresh! Must be. Foie gras bread is also a must-have point, the bread is very crisp, foie gras is not awkward, slightly sweet. This set of dishes is a bit greasy, and I personally feel that other homes are better than this one. I have seen other people's recommendations before the cow tartart, but after the point, I may not be accustomed to such a taste. I think the sauce is mixed with this beef, which is very common. The main food of duck breast is really big! More than you think, but recommended, delicious! (Original) 在小巷子里的地下一楼,很容易找到,从进门到入座感觉都很舒服,老爷爷带领入座,还帮你调节桌子位置,帮忙点菜的是一个胖胖法国女服务员,但服务总体很不错,给人感觉也很舒服。 点了生蚝,非常推荐,很有特色!很新鲜!必点。鹅肝酱面包也是必点中的必点,面包非常酥化,鹅肝酱一点都不腥,微甜。蜗牛?这套菜有点腻,个人觉得其他家做的比这家好吃。和牛tartart之前看别人推荐,但是点了后可能个人吃不惯这样的口味,觉得配的酱和这个牛肉拌在一起,很一般。 鸭胸肉这道主食,真的很大!比想象中要多很多,但是推荐,好吃!

    Food is quite good. Presentation is nice. Lovely ambience. It’s listed on Broadsheet as one of the top ten French restaurants in Melbourne but price is not too expensive. Overall experience was lovely.

    My partner and I recently had the fixed price lunch here. This is a classy restaurant, located in a laneway off Collins Street. You are greeted with a warm 'Bonjour' as you arrive. As soon as you sit down, you feel as if you were in a Paris restaurant and I was impressed by the warm and professional staff. Although we were having the fixed price lunch, we were treated with the same professionalism and attentiveness as others. Warm, fresh French bread arrived at no charge. For entree, we both had the summer tomato gazpacho with mozzarella and basil. A fresh, light flavoursome entree; perfect on a warm day. I had the seared silver dory fillet with heirloom tomatoes and vierge sauce. Great colours and beautifully presented. A sensible portion with great flavours. My partner had the charcoal grilled aged porterhouse with potato crisps and bercy sauce. Great presentation and a succulent meal. For an extra $10, we shared a mesclun salad with snow peas and parmesan. The accompanying wine from M. Chapoutier (Heathcote) was very good and generous in a 250ml carafe each. We decided to turn the quick lunch into a long lunch and had dessert ( the three course fixed price menu is $55). I had the vanilla creme brulee. It had the crispy, semi-burnt top and a beautifully light, vanilla creme custard texture. My partner had the Chocolate Mousse "Langue de chat". It was a lovely rich chocolate, accompanied by a Langue de Chat ( a cat tongue light long biscuit) which complemented the mousse perfectly. We both enjoyed an interesting, nicely balanced three course meal, with good wine at a leisurely pace in a five star French restaurant. We shall go again and would highly recommend.

  • 5Arnold S. 10 months ago
    The waiting staff were very professional, and the food was excuisite! Even with COVID restrictions, the ambiance was great.

  • 5Claudia Z. 1 year ago
    Charming and cosy restaurant with superb tender chicken! All aspects of the meal were marvellous; from the bread with Normandy butter, to the cured salmon with beetroot starter. The waitstaff were friendly, attentive and polite - the only drawback was that it was very crowded and we had to wait a while for each course. Highly recommended!

    Maybe it’s just my general excitement at being able to dine in again but having eaten here several times I feel like this place has actually improved since reopening after lockdown. Everything was great, the cassoulet was extremely rich and hearty. Our waiter (an Australian with glasses who’s name I sadly can’t remember) was especially lovely and accommodating.

    After catching a film at Kino, we walked down Collins st, looking for a place to drink and take shelter. It had started to rain, and we ducked down a random alleyway. There I spotted a small entrance, with those two magic words written on a sign: WINE BAR. But this was no wine bar. We went down the stairs and was transported into a whole french bistro world. The waiter, as if he was just expecting us, greeted us happily, telling us this was the perfect place to take refuge from the rain. "Let me take your coats", he said, proceeding to hang my friend's old tattered hoodie alongside the fur and cashmere. He gave us a seat at the bar. On the speaker played champs elysees. Were we in a Wes Anderson film? I had a sauvignon blanc (a bit too light) and a chenin blanc (perfect) and my friend had a glass of bordeaux which was really good. They were decent prices for such good wines. We inspected the food menu, which was resplendent with bourgeois items like foie gras and marrow and rumps. Behind us, behind bars of hung meats and cured things, was a young chef who was great to watch, dashing from one side to another, putting things on fire, tousling a pan, finely chopping some greens. What a great find. I'll come back here when i'm rich. When we went back outside, the rain had stopped, and the air was clear.

    When PM24 closed, I was dreaming about when I'd next see a Philippe Mouchel meal. Tucked in a laneway and downstairs into the venue, the charming atmosphere and meat on display took me straight back to France. I was able to make a reservation quite late in the day, and I was promptly seated at the start of service. I had the Chef's oyster selection (Pacific, Sydney Rock, Angasi, Sea Water Jelly), escargots (with garlic and parsley butter, tomato fondue, croutons), Mayura Station chocolate fed Wagyu rump cap with Bercy, parmesan and rosemary french fries, and a milk soaked honey madeleine. Service was amazing, and I was fortunate to be seated near the pass to watch Philippe Mouchel himself throughout the evening. Highly recommended, will definitely return.

    (Translated by Google) One of the best restaurants in Melbourne. Very hygienic and good. I would love to visit this restaurant again. (Original) L'un des meilleurs restaurants de Melbourne. Très hygiénique et bon. J'aimerais visiter ce restaurant à nouveau.

    'Philippe’ by Paul Bocuse trained Chef, Philippe Mouchel, is a great place to celebrate a special occasion (or any other for that matter) with special friends, as was this visit. The food, as you would expect, is up there as some of the best French offerings you will find in Melbourne. We thoroughly enjoyed our entire dining experience.

  • 4Rayna M. 2 years ago
    Lovely service and great atmosphere. Lovely onion soup, pate de croute didn't quite hit the mark for me. Chicken was perfectly cooked, I would have liked more sides/flavour to go with it though I loved the secret smoked morsels. Lamb dish was delicious and surprising, very good. Chocolate fondant with pear sorbet was a perfect balance. We look forward to returning to try the duck! 4.5 stars!

  • 4ankit b. 1 year ago

  • 4Brett C. 1 year ago
    Excellent food. Small portions for Aussie hunger. On the expensive side.

  • 3. 1 year ago
    We ordered signature courses, thought it should be good. However, unfortunately, we only tasted one popular course before it comes to worse- pan-fired salmon for the third course and chicken breast for the fourth course. What should I say, am I here for chicken breast?
