France is known for its depth of history, from the medieval to the renaissance era. In particular, there was a 1600s dramatist by the name of Savinien de Cyrano de Bergerac, from which Melbourne's French Bergerac restaurant derives its name.
The artist's name may be deemed an unpleasant mouthful by some, in that it is so often mispronounced, but the Bergerac restaurant offers a better mouthful of classical French cuisine. Things are kept simple at this King Street eatery, with the Bergerac menu consisting of the entree, main course and dessert.
There's also enough room for special occasions such as parties and weddings, with the restaurant seating a total of 90 patrons. Due to its lavish French interior, the Bergerac is the ideal place for formal occasions like corporate entertainment and business meetings. This is another one of those rare food joints that allow for online booking and cheques and all major credit cards are accepted.
