What’s not to love about the French Bistro dining experience?


Fresh, carefully-sourced seasonal produce, clear, straight-forward flavour combinations with unfussy presentation…


Add to this a broad, well-considered beverage list, attentive and informal service in a charming, quiet terrace on a tree-lined back street in historic Redfern, Sydney.


We may not be French (we are Kiwis and Aussies, just quietly), but we learned some of the best the French offered the world. As lovers of French food, we offer Sydneysiders the quintessential French Bistro dining experience. Steak-frites, freshly shucked oysters, Coquilles St Jacques (scallops), incredible fromage, crème brûlée and more.

Bistro St Jacques… not a formal French restaurant… not another café… a Bistro!
