Serving up classic cafe cuisine with a French twist, Le Trader on Pyrmont’s Harris Street pride themselves on creating each dish using organic and seasonal produce, so you can indulge guilt-free. From breakfasts like the organic French breakfast (two eggs in any style, bacon, mushroom, chorizo, tomato, seasonal vegetables, and your choice of bread) to baguettes, sandwiches and French-inspired mains, whether it’s for breakfast, lunch or dinner, Sydney’s Le Trader is the place to go for a rustic French feast. We recommend the Le Traders buckwheat crepe for a lunchtime treat (a crepe filled with prawns, baby greens, mushrooms, goats cheese, and tomato chutney) while the confit de canard (confit duck leg served with roasted potatoes tossed with shiitake mushrooms and foie gras) is perfect for an elegant evening meal.
Sydney Francophiles and foodies are just buzzing about Le Trader. Located in the heart of Pyrmont, Le Trader is up there with the best restaurants peppered throughout this harbourside city. Specialising in French cuisine, the team here strictly use organic and premium ingredients, and it’s certainly paying off. Perfect for a weekend breakfast or brunch, feasting on the black truffle oil scrambled eggs with goats cheese and spinach on sourdough, or perhaps the French toast with strawberry compote and Canadian maple syrup is the perfect start to the day.
For a later, more romantic affair, Le Trader’s evening menu is a homage to France if ever there was one. Start with the saint jacques a l’ail of grilled scallops, chilli, mushroom and artichoke, or the steak tartare made using premium Riverina hand-cut beef eye. Following on, take a look at the poitrine de porc rotie of roasted pork belly, carrot glacee, red cabbage and cauliflower or gnocchi gratin with artichoke, pear, green beans, manchego and blue cheese. Le Trader is premium French fine dining at its best, and this Sydney foodie favourite is only getting better. So treat yourself to a dining experience you won’t forget. Located on Harris Street in Pyrmont, bookings are essential.
Awesome service and amazing food. A nice quiet atmosphere out of the way for a romantic dinner or a casual dinner with friends where you can hear each other talk
Out first time at Le Trader and the service was exceptional and the food was good - a good selection for vegetarians which is sometimes challenging at French restaurants. It was a very nice restaurant!
Great food! Really enjoyed our dinner. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Good wines to accompany the food too! We left ever so full.
Fabulous French food in a quiet cafe setting. Staff very attentive. Would recommend to all French food lovers - duck and fois gras the best!
Nice casual atmosphere, friendly service and great duck & brulee. The menu also included several gluten free options that made my coeliac partner very happy. There seemed to be a number of regulars eating there, so that is a good sign of consistency. We will definitely return.
Very pleasant dining experience, excellent tasty and perfect decorated French dishes, variety French and Australian wines in reasonable prices, warmly friendly service provided by two beautiful French young ladies ,that's a good management establishment. Certainly come again.
What a great place for a quiet and lovely French dinner. I would definitely recommend this place if you are a food lovers and would like to have a welcoming service.
This unpretentious restaurant never fails to delight with its food, service and wine. Highly recommended. The food is delicious. The service is friendly but not over the top.
Cena dell’ultimo dell’anno di 4 portate fisse. Ottima la presentazione nonché il mangiare, giusto abbinamento dei vini. Locale un po’ piccolo ma grazioso. Personale gentile. In conclusione una buona cena per l’ultimo dell’anno.
Food was amazing, got the duck leg came out perfect. Snails were fatty and moreish. Service could be better - had to ask twice for share plates and it felt like they didn't want to let me pay!
