Le Bouchon offers all the standard French bistro classics and easily caters for those wanting a casual weekend breakfast; local office workers looking for a good-value lunch; and those after an intimate dinner.
The epitome of the classic local neighbourhood French bistro, Le Bouchon offers indoor and outdoor seating, right in the heart of Crows Nest. The service is brisk, professional and friendly; decor is simple and understated; and the wine list is a good mix of local and French wines.
While the menu is traditionally French, it offers a good range of options. Mussels are a lunchtime speciality, with moules frites (with fries), moules marinière (with white wine and shallots), moules Provencale (with basil, tomato and garlic) and moules fromagère (with blue cheese, lardons and cream. From the main courses, try the crispy pork belly with crushed apples, peas and lentils, or the oh-so-French dish of steak frites – sirloin steak with crispy fries and a choice of flavoured butters.
PSST! Fancy a quick, simple lunch? Le Bouchon offers excellent traditional baguettes – fast, easy and tasty.
