The Melbourne Weekend Notes team have reviewed a number of the acclaimed French establishments in Melbourne;
After just writing it up I'll go for Bon App in Fitzroy because it is so French, but so inexpensive, which is a nice change compared to many of the other French restaurants in Melbourne that hike the price just because the food is French inspired.
If you want a truly delightful experience of French cuisine with a local twist head off to Kyneton and dine at Annie Smithers Bistrot. Be aware you will need to book ahead she is an extremely popular lasshttp://www.anniesmithers.com.au/
Great French Restaurant is Metropolis House, Sydney Road , Brunswick. Great food, decor and gorgeous balcony overlooking bustling Sydney Rd. Good for a large event too.http://www.metropolis-eating-house.com.au
