Sydney is home to many award-winning and creative French restaurants, varying from fine dining to more affordable options. Below we have listed some of our favorite French cuisine in Sydney.



Felix is an upscale and elegant French-inspired restaurant that has won many notable awards, including Best Regional Wine List and Chef of the Year. Their innovative menu is matched by their extensive wine list. A classic French brasserie inspires the interior of the restaurant – French chandeliers hang from the ceiling and waiters in long aprons deliver the food. Be sure to make a reservation before you arrive.

Le Pelican

Le Pelican offers traditional French food with a modern twist. Their menu is always changing based on what seasonal ingredients are available, plus, they also offer a diverse selection of wines. The restaurant is located on a relaxing sandstone terrace, and the interior is charming and intimate, with sandstone walls and wooden floors.

Bistro Papillon

Bistro Papillon offers traditional French cuisine. Their menu is crafted using only the freshest ingredients and their extensive wine list perfectly complements their fare. The atmosphere of the restaurant is romantic and intimate, and the walls are decorated with antique posters. This is the perfect place for a special night out – be sure to try their Coq Au Vin.

Four Frogs Creperie Mosman

Four Frogs Creperie Mosman is a casual French restaurant that specializes in crepes and galettes (savory crepes), which are made using traditional French recipes and techniques. Although they do offer many traditional recipes, they have also adapted to Sydney and offer Aussie inspired fillings as well. The galettes are made using special buckwheat flour, which really enhances their taste. This is the perfect restaurant for a causal lunch or afternoon snack.
