Summary

“A little bit of France in Perth!”; while “the chef is Polish and none of the staff would appear to have any connection with ‘la patrie’”, that doesn’t dent the Gallic flair of this “very good value” bistro, deemed “magnifique!” by fans; “go for breakfast, go for lunch and try again in the evening!”

Summary

“Very dependable”, “French-bistro-style, comfort food” can come as “a real surprise” at this authentically Gallic spot (especially when you know the chef is actually Polish!). “It’s busy and atmospheric at lunchtime, a bit quieter at night but always good.”

Summary

“A cheerful bonjour as you enter” adds to the “bustling and fun” vibe of this “little bit of Paris” that’s actually owned by a Polish family (a “weird but wonderful mix of cultures”). It offers “perfect French classics” and “very good” wines delivered by “smiling staff”.

Summary

“A smile, a good day, and sometimes a bonjour” help set the “welcoming” tone at this “little bit of France” (though actually the family is Polish); it pleases all who comment on it with its “consistently good” standards, and is particularly popular as a lunch destination.
