This restaurant is permanently closed. Bienvenue a Tu

Established in early 2016, Tu is winning over Melbourne through its friendly service, beautiful cuisine and authentic French approach to dining.

As its name suggests, Tu (the informal way of saying 'you' in French) provides relaxed dining in a warm and friendly space. Our team of French chefs and waiters want you to come in and experience authentic local French eating the way we do it in France.

Open all day, you are welcome to come in for a morning pastry, taste our fabulous coffee, have a rosé and cheeseboard in the courtyard, chat with our barman over a Pastis or enjoy a la carte dinner with wine.

La vie est belle á Tu

The restaurant was quiet the night we ate there and good for conversation. The waiter was very pleasant; she was from France and a delight to talk with between courses. The food was like we have had many times in bistros in France.

It had the little French bistro feel. Food was just ok, owner nice but busy and run off his feet while the 2nd waitress/ bar staff clearly wasn’t in her element or very observant. Has potential but the prices don’t quite reflect the simple offering. My eye fillet was of very average quality, the charcuterie was decent enough, tuna tataki very average and duck also just ok. I’d choose others in the area over returning here.

This visit to Tu was for Valentine’s Day and they were having a set menu. Some nice touches in the form of named invitations and blankets available for those dining outside.

As usual the food was artistically presented on the plate and the flavors complementary.

We had a great meal at Tu, the service and the food were first class. We also had some help from the staff for our wine selection which turned out to first rate.This is a excellent place for dining.

Had been looking for a 'real' French restaurant and found Tu late in 2017.
Was very happy with the whole experience with excellent food and service and very friendly owner/manager and staff.

Like a nearby restaurant in that it has a great menu, reasonable wine list but the wait staff are consistently much more helpful, less rushed and friendly

We found the owner Trent warm and welcoming, and noticed many diners were known to him
and on entering they enjoyed the recognition of being a regular.
There certainly is a Warm French feeling in the restaurant.
Great food and loved the french wines chosen by our friendly waiter.
We will be back
