More about Le Bouchon, Crows Nest

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.

Truly French and very warm atmosphere with friendly staff, delicious food and a good wine selection. The scallops entree special was to die for and the mains were just as delicious. Highly recommended.

Beautiful food, excellent service. Julian has an understanding of being friendly and interacting with his clientelle without being intrusive. Can't wait to go back and sample some more of the very well balanced menu.

We have eaten here on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed. The boulabaisse can be highly recommended and the twice cooked blue cheese soufflé is outstanding
