Les Bistronomes is the kind of a French bistro which you love to frequent. There are various classic retro French dishes that takes one, all the way back to the childhood and Robert Carrier, the Les Bistronomes chef and owner Clement Chauvin has the fine-dining background, but eschews much of fancy stuff in the favour of simple, excellent handled classics with the firmly bistro feel.
The Braddon space is simple, that is it's not a place where money has been lavished on an expensive fit out, but it has a pleasant feel, with floor-to-ceiling windows as one wall, an open wine rack at one end of the room, and decent sized outdoor space. The wine list is simple and regional French, with an emphasis on organics.
Service, too, comes with an accent and a youthful, fresh feel. And sharing works well not only in the mains, but also on desserts, where you can order an entire tarot tuition, and bring six extra stomachs to help you eat it. Overall, Les Bistronomes hits so many right notes that it has now become a firm favourite and a regular haunt, and we count it among the top handful in Canberra restaurants.
Location: Braddon 2612 ACT, Elouera Street, Canberra, Australia.
