The Little French Deli - Bonbeach Southern Victoria

The Little French Deli situated on Nepean Highway in Bonbeach must have started life a lot smaller. Maybe what looked like a bakery next door. It now is quite a reasonable establishment. On both occasions I have eaten here we have sat upfront, near the windows. There is a back area and outside area which would seat quite a few. On my first visit late Sunday afternoon, for cake and coffee, it was not all that good. My wife who had eaten here previously said we should come back for dinner.

With our foodie relations we dinned one evening on some fine French style food a few months later. This time the experience was an extreme delight. There is a reasonable wine and beer list and good selection of entrees and mains. The beef ragout had been suggested to me and was sensational. Service was Ok and friendly. Sitting opposite the bar was a little noisy, try for a window seat.

After just spending five and a half weeks in France and Europe I had developed a passion for Crème Brulee. Where better to order one in Oz. Well not here it appears. It was most unpleasant and had the consistency of vomit! Not happy for it had been a while since I had one. Possible the next time I order one here it maybe better. Or just don't take the chance.

With easy parking (in the evening at any rate), pleasant surroundings and only French staff you should enjoy the food and dinning experience. Book, they can get busy regardless of the size of the restaurant. Bon appetite.
