Peeping over the bustling throng of restaurants, bars and cafes in Crows Nest in Sydney, Le Bouchon is forging ahead with its unique brand of laidback French bistro-style cooking on Willoughby Road. The team pride themselves on bringing the traditional flavours of French cooking, married with classic French ingredients and smart service to patrons on the Lower North Shore in the city. There are few places where Sydney’s Francophiles can find authentic French cooking, but in Le Bouchon they can find a celebration of just that.
Le Bouchon on Willoughby Road down in Sydney’s Crows Nest takes its name from the French word bouchon, or cork, and used in France’s capital of gastronomy, Lyon to mean a well-run, authentic and convivial bistro. As such, Le Bouchon focuses on serving this traditional bouchon-style food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Of course, it wouldn’t do for a French place to serve below-par coffee, and instead, the breakfast and its accompanying beverages are given the classic French foodie treatment – rich mugs of cafe au lait and delicate French crepes as well as filling meat and veggie omelettes for hungry fans of French cuisine.
Aside from the generous breakfast menu, Le Bouchon is also doing a fine job on their lunch and dinner menus: think classic French favourites like moules frites, crispy baguettes and garlicky mushrooms as well as relatively hefty mains like fish of the day and confit duck leg with pureed carrots and puy lentils for those looking for a more lavish evening over in Crows Nest. The French take their puddings seriously too, so the chocolate marquise with Cointreau and the chilled nougat souffle are both worth a good look. For Sydney’s savvy Willoughby Road diners, French cooking is best done at Le Bouchon.

This is a great restaurant - the degustation menu is definitely worth having, excellent food beautifully matched with superb wines. We will come back soon!
Lovely way to celebrate Valentines Day with a 6 Course Dégustation Dinner with Matching Wines. Service was good and food was wonderful, especially desert as expected.
Le Bouchon is a gem in the strip at Crows Nest, with authentic French cuisine at affordable prices. We had the escargot, sans shells, which are excellent, and then the duck and calf's liver for our main dish, all washed down with the just arrived Beaujolais. This is the 2nd time I've eaten here, and it's on my favorite's list. Having had lunch before and dinner last night, I'll have to try their breakfast.
The food at Le Bouchon is of a very high standard and the staff are friendly and efficient. The scallops were some of the best I've had and my dinner companions were equally happy with their meals. Will definitely be returning.
We had Claire a lovely young French lady serve us all night, she has only been in Australia a couple of months and excellent waitress. All the staff at Le Bouchon are very polite & friendly.
I guess it depends on what you order. I had the duck. I thought the duck tasted a little old and/or overcooked, nevertheless it was tasty. Others at my table had the fish of the day and were quite pleased with it. I also had a pork belly entree, which was a special on the day-got fat and a taste of meat but the crackling was perfect. Others had the double-baked blue cheese and zucchini-their verdict? delicious. Everyone was very happy with their desserts. It's not the best French restaurant/bistro I've been to but it holds the fort. Oh, and if you're there on a Winter's day, as we were ,ask for a table at the back of the restaurant. We kept on getting gusts of cold air as the door opened.
We enjoyed our evening very much. The service was excellent, food delicious and lots of variety on the menu. Would be a very suitable place to have a larger group as there is a space at the rear of the restaurant for about 40 people to be served separately. Convenient to local parking. Excellent - we will be back.
We have just discovered this little restaurant and enjoyed it so much we took 4 friends there last week . The service was very good and the French wine, and food were excellent, very authentic French flavours. We enjoyed escargots, cheese souffle, confit of duck, plus crème brûlée for dessert. We will all be returning soon.
