Best French Restaurants in Sydney
Creating French fare is an art, backed by long standing traditions and classic cooking techniques. From creamy pates, to steak frites, to pomme puree, to creme brûlée, not to mention their cheeses, there’s not much not to love about French cuisine, right?! Oh, and don’t even get me started about Champagne… The French sure know how to enjoy in style!
So, I’ve rounded up my list of Sydney’s best French restaurants. Bon appetite!
