Located on Fitzroy Street in St Kilda, Luxembourg Bar and Bistro is the newest addition to Melbourne dining. Named after the Jardin du Luxembourg in the 6th arrondissement of Paris, Luxembourg is a European bar and bistro, combining classic fare with head chef Chris Watson’s contemporary experience. In partnership with restaurateur Andrew McConnell, the former Golden Fields site has been transformed to create a sophisticated space comfortable for a relaxed lunch, le cinq a sept with friends or an evening spent sharing dishes from the full a la carte menu. Luxembourg’s carefully crafted wine list showcases an extensive range of low intervention wines with a focus on smaller producers, yet still maintains more familiar options for those partial to a more classic pairing. The Bar & Bistro takes bookings of up to 18 guests for dinner Tuesday to Sunday and for lunch Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

I made an early reservation for dinner to celebrate my mother's birthday. Arriving at 5pm we had the whole restaurant to ourselves and the service was impeccable. The meal was delicious and we would have loved to stay longer and perhaps order dessert but unfortunately, I had a flight to catch.

·Dined on 22 November 2016

Fantastic food - some of the highest quality outcomes in Melbourne. It is a little pricey, in particular the red meat, but certainly worth the treat if you decide to spend.

I think we have been 8+ times now over the past few years.

Below average dining experience. Menu was limited in choice. The staff didn't seem as if they were interested in being there . The dessert selection was very poor. They had run out of profiteroles on a Saturday night by 8pm. Overall a below average dining experience. We went to another restaurant for dessert and coffee

·Dined on 22 September 2016

There were four us ifs, friends getting together for dinner as we do perhaps t9wice a year. The consensus was that the food was "just OK". The prices were outrageously high! The contrast between the food quality the prices was the most remarkable feature of the experience which npne of us will repeat.

Beautiful gem in the neighbourhood, can't go wrong with Chef Chris Watson. Simple and well thought out menu, with many "to share" dishes, this is definitely the place to hang out with family and friends if you don't want to head into the city. Half-priced oysters and Aperol Spritz during Happy Hour is also another reason to head down here.

We shared a range of entrees which came out at different times. Each dish was better than the last, and all were outstanding. The mains were lovely, and the sides were sensational.

Great night with excellent service.

·Dined on 30 August 2016

Always a great experience! Rating lower on service for two reasons:

  1. Our side of fries and extra brioche were forgotten

  2. Approx 2-3 times when needing service, waitstaff were deep in conversation behind the bar

Other than that, it was friendly and nice.

Also apologising for our rowdy friend! Haha

·Dined on 18 August 2015

Fantastic service. Great steak and chips, French onion soup is so amazing. Only improvement I would say is because the steak is so large, it gets cold quite quickly so if it was served on a very hot plate that would have made it even better.
