    Food is the classics; all well prepared. Very authentic. Wine list a little obscure, with a number of lesser known appellations.

    Close your eyes for a moment when seated at Bistro Francais even without French music in the background & you will be transported back to anywhere in France by just the rich robust flavours waffling by from service, or the soft lull of a French accent in house. The crusine is fine dining, depending on what you order , it's rich and robust or delicate in flavour. If you wish to experience a French adventure this little gem has it all.

    An excellent lunch. All courses were generous and perfectly prepared. We worked our way through to desserts. Moderate noise level to be expected with a reasonably full house, all enjoying it. The wine list could be more varied. It’s good to try the whole French experience but some more local names would be good too.

    Boeuf Bourguignon was a large serve and very tender and tasty. The chicken Cordon Bleu was also a large serve, well presented, and my wife enjoyed it. The lemon souffle was delicious and we made the mistake of only ordering one to share. Next time one each.

    Dined here a week ago and food was so good couldn't wait to come back. Not kidding when they say serving sizes are large! Steak was melt in the mouth. Beef cheeks so tender almost falling apart. Sat outside but heaters worked very well and didn't feel cold at all.

    We have been to Bistro Francais three times now and have never been disappointed. Food is excellent and presented beautifully. Waiters are attentive, and obliging. The entrees are sensational, escargots are a must. This restaurant is worth a visit. The best on KWR

    Food was very good, the only drawback was paying $10 for the bread. Good to see French wines on the winelist but maybe a few more SA wines would go well. We do make the best wines in Australia!

    Nice ambience, welcoming staff, prompt service, have the time to explain the menu, good service from the kitchen and bar. Good value for money. Would definately recommend Bistro France for a place meet with friends and eat a meal. Parking could be a bit of a problem because of the many other eating places in this vicinity.

    Unfortunately ran out of beef cheeks which was looking forward to since booking . Wasn’t anything that I actually wanted to replace it . Our young female waitress was so attentive and friendly unlike the male waiter that treated us after with contempt, no communication nor a smile etc was quite rude in his role. The entrees and dessert with delicious and so French . Cheese Soufflé and lemon curd soufflé , were excellent. Mushroom crepe too, French wine and value for money . .

    My husband and I had a really great experience dining in Bistro Français. We ordered Soufflé au Fromage, Steak Frites, Poulet Cordon Bleu, Parfait aux Pruneaux et Armagnac, plus Petit Pérou red wine; and were completely blown away by the appetizer and the Cordon Bleu. The steak was a little too dry to our liking, but the addition of garlic butter to the steak was truly on the spot. The dessert was also delicious, and the wine, great and value for money. Overall, we do recommend checking out this bistro!
