C’est Bon Chef Peter Roelfes knows how to cook French food and does not disappoint.
The newly renovated restaurant is stylish, with simple but elegant wooden tables and bench booth seating giving it a busy and exciting buzz. The service is friendly, convivial and warmly Gallic. The extensive wine list is carefully chosen with a good selection by the glass.
The food draws on classic French flavours and techniques with fresh local ingredients. French onion soup comes in bowl with a puff pastry crust that opens to reveal a piping hot earthy soup with a soft cheese topping. C’est Bon’s celebrated duck à l’orange is generous and hearty. The twice-cooked duck is tender and moist, with a crisp skin and a sublime Grand Marnier and orange sauce – served with sweet potato mash and red cabbage. Le Poulet is a tender chicken breast supreme, crumbed with croissant and served with tender, aromatic sweet root vegetables and a creamy barley and peppercorn sauce. This is traditional French cuisine prepared with good produce and excellent technique.
PSST! There is free parking for up to 10 cars behind the restaurant.
