About Bistrot Gavroche

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.

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.

Beautiful food , great atmosphere, excellent wine. What more could one ask for. A perfect place for a nice night out. And it was quiet, no reflected noise.

Massive disappointment, given the potential this place can have. Great location, fit out and ambience. However the food is of disgusting quality and service is absolutely horrendous. Steak tartare was probably the only edible thing that night, the fois gras was fair, but the biggest surprise of the night was the cassoulet. It was unbelievably over salty, missing so many of its traditional ingredients (as opposed to being a rich platter) and again, mediocre quality. Mind you, we waited for over an hour before the cassoulet was served. Would you think the manager cared when we gave him bit of feedback? Not at all.. so much rudeness at this place from the staff. Bistrot Gavroche is the place to go if you fancy spending lots of money for a mediocre experience.

Despite the positive reviews, it was a disappointing experience. Some dishes were great, like the chateaubriand, while others were heavy and tasteless, like the duck confit. The waiter had no idea about the dish and had described it as something else completely. It came out as a potato stew with pieces of duck in it. The service suffered as the restaurant got busy and the host became arrogant when I complained about the duck and the poor service. We will not be back.

It was my Birthday celebration and as we love French food we decided to try Bistro Gavroche. It did not disappoint us. Service was great as was the food excellent, and they made my desert into a Birthday surprise . We will certainly go again. Noelene & Paul hammond

First time dining here. Friendly and polite service but a little disorganised. Finished meal plates stayed on our small table for way too long. Food pleasant but not exceptional. Steak Frites was seasoned with far too much salt that over powered the meal. Wine list ok. 6 small escargots for $22 is overpriced. Food quality did not match the prices charged.

Service was a tad slow, but very attentive. Food was great! Loved the steak frites. Wasn't drinking but wine selection was decent. 3 courses for two was dead on $200. Need to come back to try the other menu options and wine

Food is always amazing! Didn't get full marks as dinner dragged out past 9 pm and service was a bit behind the 8th ball 🎱 I will put it to a very busy night. Staff always greets with a smile.
