This busy Melbourne favourite is now in its twelfth year of Collins Street trading.
The interior is instantly evocative of Paris with trompe l’oeil ceilings and an antique (and rather large) French poster adorning the rear wall. Dark wood panelling and soft lighting completes the picture.
Bistrot d’Orsay is open all day, serving breakfast from 9.00am. The lunch/dinner menu leans toward a provençal Mediterranean theme, adapting French bistro classics such as bouillabaise and crème brûlée. Dishes like seafood linguini and risotto give a nod to the Italians as well. We also have a fixed price lunch card, 2 courses and a glass of premium wine for $35.
Situated next door the Athenaeum Theatre and with spectacular views of the ornate Regent Theatre directly opposite, Bistrot d’Orsay is ideal for pre theatre dinners.
The bistro has an extensive award winning wine list with well chosen selections from the best Australian and international regions. Quirky tasting notes will help you with your choice. A great range of wines by the glass are available.
