Building on the success of his decorated Singapore brasserie, internationally acclaimed chef Frédéric Colin has added some serious oomph to Kensington Street’s dining scene with Bistrot Gavroche. It’s super sleek, urbane and stylish to the eye, but the food is as hearty and traditional as it is refined. Based on memories of his beloved grandfather Henri’s cooking, Colin has brought a true taste of celebrated Parisian bistrots and brasseries to Chippendale, with a treasure trove of France’s and Australia’s best wines to complement beautifully done yet comforting French classics like soupe à l'oignon, pâté en croûte, parmentier de canard confit, escargots de Bourgogne au beurre d’ail and tarte au citron meringuée. It may not have the rough edges and cheek of its namesake, but this restaurant in Chippendale’s converted rum warehouse certainly shares with Gavroche an ability to punch above its weight, a casual eatery that could knock most central Sydney fine-dining restaurants out cold.
A lovely experience with just the right amount of attentiveness and excellent champagne! I left feeling satisfied and full and will happily return to test some new dishes.
Great venue - great food - great place to go. I recently took a work party to Gavroche and they thoroughly enjoyed the experience overall.
Nice ambience and great service. Awesome restaurant for a date, special occasions or group gatherings. The waiters were so attentive and even arranged a candle for the birthday girl. Great place.
