Where modern French provincial dining comes to life

Be transported to the neighborhood bistros of Paris with Guillaume Brahimi’s modern French menu. Catch up with friends amongst the warmth of the Riverwalk terrace over an indulgent twice baked Cheese Soufflé, Guillaume’s classically famous creamy Paris Mash or even a vanilla bean Crème Brûlée.

An authentic French bistro experience on the banks of the Yarra, the restaurant’s chic style, elegance and warmth make for that perfect romantic meal for two, or provide a relaxed setting for a group of friends or family. 

Guillaume Brahimi brings the food to life from the heart, sharing his love of French food with his diners.

Meet the chef

Guillaume Brahimi, Head Chef

One of Australia’s most acclaimed chefs, French-born Guillaume Brahimi realised his passion for cooking at an early age. As a young man, he trained at three-star Michelin restaurants La Tour D'argent and Jamin under Joel Robuchon in Paris, before moving to Sydney in the late 1990s to open a flagship restaurant at the Sydney Opera House.

As Guillaume Brahimi puts it:

“Bistro Guillaume is just the sort of place where I would like to eat on a regular basis. It’s the perfect place for a simple meal or a more elaborate celebration. From noon until late, you can pop in on your own to have a satisfying salad or come late at night for a bowl of French onion soup. I want guests to feel relaxed and welcome and know that they have plenty of options to choose from.”
