Bistro La Provence
First time we had been to have a quiet dinner for two although it caters for larger groups. Great service, food, wine list and ambience. Depending on the night an added bonus is an after dinner walk out on the pier and enjoy the amazing Melbourne skyline and lights up and down the bay
Nice food wines were expensive
I love this restaurant, the food and the decor, which felt like a home. I will go there regularly.
Pretty standard French menu but well executed and it is very relaxed and accommodating. Very little wait time. Nice wines too. Only one thing not quite right....the beans as a side dish were quite old beans.
I like that a quick drink at the bar is fine with them too. I would recommend it to anyone with pleasure.
They are professional and accommodating and another French restaurant not too far away could learn a lot from them.
Very friendly service and value for money! The environment was excellent and familiar to a 5-star restaurant.
Good choice for a classic, intimate restaurant experience
Quite an extensive menu. Good mix of choices. Perhaps some more vegetarian food would be good. Second time here and will come again. Delicious sauces. Lovely to be able to talk to our dinner companions without having to shout.
We love this restaurant. It is local to us, great menu and wine list. The food is always beautiful and well cooked and the staff are friendly. It transports us to a Parisian bistro experience which we love. Already looking forward to our next visit.
A friend recommended that we go to Bistro La Provence, we did. We were pleasantly surprised by the ambiance, like walking into some ones lounge room, the quality of service, staff recommending what wines to have with our meals, the food, beautifully presented and very tasty. Although a bit expensive we would go again and would know we would receive the same impeccable experience!
Great menu, extensive wine list, excellent service, wonderful ambience. The background sound level is just right for a comfortable but private conversation. We had the cheese soufle, the cassoulet and the creme brulee all perfect
Staff and food was beautiful- authentic French food! Had some great wines and cocktails available too
Everything was excellent as last time on Mother’s Day, 12 May, including the requested table by the fireplace. Laurent and his team have an eye for detail and are excellent at providing the right level of attention without in any way being intrusive. Impossible to criticise anything. Just a perfect evening altogether and, of course, we shall be back. Thank you Laurent and Team. Kind regards. Pedro De Souza.
I was craving classic french food on the day and we picked randomly Bistro la Provence. The food was delicious and the place was surprisingly big, elegant and warm considering the tiny front entrance. The service was impeccable and friendly. We will definitely come again to have another tartare
Great place - food, service and menu. Would recommend.
Great local French restaurant. Best chocolate suffle I have had in a long time.
Beautiful serene atmosphere, combined with great service and traditional French food, makes for a truly unique experience in the heart of Brighton
An authentic French menu will not disappoint. A hidden gem.
Absolutely love this place. So authentic and delicious. The owner is a gem and he has some fabulous staff. Love the setting. Love the wine list. We were a party of 6 and everyone was very happy with their different choices. Huge plus to the fact we could all hear each other
I would absolutely be back and recommend Bistro La Provence. It served us the french provincial food we did not have in France.
The beef cheek bourguignon and the cassoullet were amazing and the foie gras was out of this world.
Beautiful decor...friendly attentive wait staff and food was delicious.
Altogether a lovely dining experience
Fantastic food, service, ambience - everything! Could not fault it at all and will definitely be back.
I have lived in Brighton area for more than 60 years and only just heard that there was a French restaurant opposite the baths! Best kept secret! I’ll be back. 😊
One of the best duck dishes I have every eaten. So tender and delicious. This is my favourite French restaurant in Melbourne. Their Creme Brulee is so creamy and delicious too!
Excellent food and service, definitely would recommend the steak tartare, onion soup and cured trout but suspect everything on the menu would be equally delicious.
We were delighted to celebrate Bastille Day with friends and family on Sunday afternoon. The food, service and atmosphere were exceptional and we can't wait to return!
Love it... great traditional French food beautifully cooked. A real gem...
We had a wonderful dinner, Bistro La Provence is that special restaurant you hold dear for special occasions. The food, service and atmosphere couldn't be any more French! The presentation of their menu is outstanding with a great selection of wines to match and the staff are both helpful and charming. We will be back!
High quality French dishes. Not fine dining, or trying to be, but typical of what one might expect from a good Parisian bistro. The wines list is heavily French and has an abundance of interesting choices. The French reds by the glass are perfect food wines.
Bistro La Provence is an amazing dining experience for everyone. We had a quiet dinner for 2 but would not hesitate in bringing a group of family and friends. Thankyou for a wonderful evening.
Nice welcome, friendly service in a lovely warm ambient space. The food was faultless, delicious and traditional French.
Very pleasant, authentic French style, will be a regular from now on.
A beautiful space that is a true hiden gem. We left agreeing it’s our new favourite local. Can’t wait to go back soon.
Outstanding service, food to die for, can't wait to return!
Delicious food and a lovely atmosphere. I would highly recommend.
Made a booking for a date night and received a great table near the fire on a cold night. Service was attentive and friendly, whilst the food was fantastic. Look forward to eating there again soon.
Great atmosphere. Delicious, genuine French dishes. Good service. Pleasant ambience. A great experience overall
A neighbourhood gem! Very authentic French food with a very good wine list, including an excellent variety of French wines.
Well located, friendly professional staff and delicious food.
Loved every bite ! Relaxing ambience with great quality and attention to detail,the Wednesday BYO means we can come more often.
Bistro La Provence offers a great local dining experience. The ambience, food and service is wonderful and the wine list is delicious.
