A Bistro is, in its original Parisian incarnation, a small restaurant, serving moderately priced
produce-driven meals in a relaxed, comfortable setting.

Based in Devonport, Tasmania, Bistro Camille brings this philosophy to life using Tasmania's world class produce.

Camille's Restaurant menu is written and prepared by Executive Chef Fabien Lefrancois who, having cooked and trained across both Europe and Australia, now resides here in Tasmania's North.

Food was fabulous. Service was slow and unruly children racing around the restaurant diminished the ambience. But purely based on the food I would recommend a visit.

We enjoyed a lovely 2 course meal - we would have loved to try for third course but our bellies were too full. Food was tasty and service very friendly.

Food was good but service was well below usual standards. The better of the waiters looked untidy and the other kept looking at my daughter's breasts when at our table. Totally unacceptable. We had to ask for water and the drinks menu at least twice. For the prices charged the service should be amazing. The restaurant was basically empty besides our table of 6 squeezed next a table of 8. Perhaps our experience explains why there were many less diners than usual. A very disappointing night.

Other than missing one small part of the order everything was excellent. Greeted at the door with a smile and welcome and departed with a smile and thanks.

THE PLACE WAS REALLY COLD. SERVICE THEY TRIED, BUT LITTLE THINGS LET THEM DOWN. OUR CHAMPAGNE COCKTAIL WAS MISSING AN INGREDIENT. WHEN WE ASKED ABOUT THIS THEY SAID THEY DIDN'T HAVE IT. IF THEY HAD LET US KNOW BEFOREHAND WE WOULD HAVE ORDERED SOMETHING ELSE. MY NEXT DRINK NO GARNISH IN COCKTAIL. SO MY NEXT DRINK I ASKED FOR LEMON OR LIME IN IT. IT CAME OUT WITH NONE. SMALL THING I KNOW, BUT ATTENTION TO DETAIL MATTERS WHEN YOU ARE PAYING GOOD MONEY FOR SOMETHING THAT DOESN'T GET DELIVERED.

Hi Belinda, We are very sorry to hear about your disappointing experience. The issues you have outlined are legitimate and have been taken very seriously. As explained in private, we were understaffed and missing key senior staff due to illness. While these circumstances are unavoidable, we still expect a higher standard of service than you have experienced; as a result we have implemented further training for our staff. We hope to see you again. Regards, Daniel - Manager @ Bistro Camille
