This little French restaurant is one of the smallest in town, occupying a single room in the front of a terrace. The intimate atmosphere is a nice contrast to the chill outside.
It's not just the atmosphere that makes Mon Ami a good choice for an autumn/winter dinner (strangely enough). It's the duck. The little carved duck watching over diners as they enter indicates the house speciality. I tried the confit duck leg, and it was meltingly smooth, without the fatty aftertaste that duck is sometimes prone to. Just perfect.
For the few people who don't look forward to duck there are other options, including a few interesting fish dishes. I found the most striking thing about this Paris Grill's menu was that they've wandered just far enough from Paris (traditional French restaurants can be a bit plain at times) to suit Aussie tastes.
