It’s no secret French cuisine is one of the most articulate in the world! France thrives off its core belief in the importance of good, wholesome food, and their two-hour lunch breaks and three-course meals are de rigeur.

There’s much to love; an assortment of freshly baked breads, a plethora of scrumptious cheese, the most extensive pastry selections, bountiful seafood, poultry and meat dishes, colourful fruits and vibrant vegetables, simmering broths, hearty soups and delicate sauces of all design and flavour, not to forget the finest wines of the region to wash it all down with — the French certainly know how to impress.

Expat Choice brings you a selection of our top restaurants and bistros, each presenting their very own version and variety of traditional and contemporary French cuisine.

Proudly boasting of a deserving three Michelin star accolade on its back, Les Amis continues to prove itself worthy, by its merit of excellent food and personalized service as a team effort! Spear-headed by the legendary Chef Sebastian Lepinoy, who carries a wealth of knowledge and technical skills, dishes are highly influenced by Parisian haute cuisine. The primary intent is to gift diners with a memorable experience of ‘beyond the taste profiles of France,’ by incorporating a background drawing on personal stories related to the intricacies of key ingredients. Both lunch and dinner menus offer succulent, seasonal dishes — where one could opt for either the classic or degustation menus to sample a taste of Chef Lepinoy’s culinary genius.

Bar-Roque Grill

Bar-Roque Grill

This is a fabulous Sunday Brunch option. Having tasted the fare at Bar-Roque a number of times, I would say the house specialty must be highlighted in their aged meats. Much of the fare is made in-house from meats dry aged, through to terrines, rillettes, cottage cheese - which is divine - to the house charcuterie.  Some cheeses are matured in house where fresh milk is obtained locally, from goat and cow farms, then pasteurised. Organic pork is imported from Australia but there are also beef and lamb sausages as options. With all types of sausages on offer – smoked and dried, this array of charcuterie is full of flavour. A warm basket of freshly baked Madeleines with Nutella and raspberry sauces top of the menu. We don’t need to go to France to enjoy such delightful treats. For $14 - the eight madeleines served are top value.
