Thoroughly enjoyed Bistro Rex over the Mothers Day weekend. The food was delicious and the restaurant has a wonderful cosy, feeling.
The staff were beyond efficient. Looking forward to our next visit.

We had a wonderful experience. The food was absolutely delicious -everyone in our group agreed! I particularly loved the duck breast - it simply melted in your mouth. I have already recommended Bistro Rex to others.

Fabulous night out celebrating a colleague's promotion. From the first moment we felt welcome and valued. Our French colleague was highly complimentary of the wine list, and the Menu reflected a move into the cooler months. Fantastic service and ambiance. We will be back!

We had the lovely Sunday roast which was great but more gravy would have been good. Only downside is we were placed in between two large tables so it was very noisy.

The steak frites was chewy and hard.
The drinks were mostly ice and very expensive.
It was not up to their usual food standard.

From moment of arrival, to the familial hug at the end, nothing was a problem. Staff were attentive, friendly and all around fabulous. There were six of us and we decided on the share menu. It was a perfect way to be introduce to the exquisite french bistro menu. We were also really fortunate to have chef and part owner talk us through couple of the courses . The whole evening was certainly a testament to phenomenal food and service.

It is a charming place. Had no problems with it. We live across the road so are familiar with it.
Cocktails could do with a lot less ice, and the noise level could be lower.
Remember, it is a restaurant/bistro, not a nightclub. We want to talk, not jive.
Cheers, hope this review is useful.

Food not up to usual standard - fish special course over cooked and swimming in liquid. Duck special meal better choice but unremarkable. Noise level uncomfortably loud. Tables too close: although I’d booked well in advance,live locally and have made Bistro Rex my key local restaurant for months now and selected it to recommend to a visiting Melbourne friend I found the dinner experience disappointing and would probably only book for lunches now.

Absolutely love the setting and i would recommend asking for booth seating as this is particularly comfortable. the menu is broad and the daily specials also good. Drinks menu is typical french, which is nice, and they have a daily happy hour. Sunday special oysters were also excellent tasting and value. Staff extremely friendly and welcoming - would recommend
