A celebration of all things French, this bar, restaurant and patisserie in Fortitude Valley exudes elegance. The decor is redolent of an old fashioned French brasserie, serving classic French cuisine in warm, inviting surroundings. This is the kind of place where you can linger over a bowl of excellent onion soup or a plate of fruits des mer. Mirrors line the walls and there’s a large bar area where one can partake of a pre-dinner drink, a Kir Royal perhaps or a signature Belle Epoque cocktail of calavados, fresh mint, apple juice and champagne. There’s a large selection of aperitifs and a wine list that features a decent selection of wines by the glass as well as an impressive array of champagnes. The next door patisserie is a great place to pick up a baguette, a pastry or a coffee served in the flat-white style.
