Maybe at the time this was reviewed by Time Out it wasn't that good, but 2 stars at the moment don't do it justice. I went for an evening meal, had foie gras for starter, steak for main and creme brulee for desert and all were excellent. The atmosphere is good and the service is quite funny as the article says. The only draw back is that the menu us quite limited.


Why have Time Out given it 2 stars when the diners have given it 5?? gross underestimation and delusions of grandeur?? or is the place not trendy enough.. I dont get it... A re-evaluation is in order!!


I had a lunchtime hankering for 'the perfect french onion soup, complete with a cheesy crouton on top' and had little hope of finding it within 5 minutes of the office (especially to take away) but was very pleasantly surprised to find the real deal at Cafe Gourmand! Heaps of cheese, blowtorched on top of the bread - heaven. Needless to say I will be going back :)

Ended up here semi-randomly - on the way to somewhere else - and was very glad I did. Had a lovely Steak 'n' Frites here - and the atmosphere was just wonderful. Oh - and the food was terrific too!


Fantastic little place! French owner is there all the time and kitchen staff are mostly French too, therefore the quality is superb! Beef sandwiches and coq u vin are my favourite. Find it and love it


Cosy and really lovely place ! Beef sandwich and pear tart are really amazing!! Don t miss it.
