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 cracking wine list, attentive and informal service in a charming, quiet terrace on a tree-lined back street in historic Redfern, Sydney.


As lovers of French food, we offer Sydneysiders the quintessential French Bistro dining experience with an unmistakable antipodean vibe.

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



Our Steak Frites

We use grass-fed eye fillet served with homemade organic fries and fantastic homemade sauces like Café de Paris butter, Poivrade, and Bordelaise. If you haven’t had Bordelaise sauce before, do yourself a favour and try it! It’s a stock reduction sauce with red wine and bone marrow named after the famous Bordeaux region in southwest France. C'est magnifique!

Our Wines

Food & wine compatibility; geographic range & sustainability of production form our wine list. Most of our wines are made by small handcraft producers who practice organic and or biodynamic growing and range from ‘classical’ to a more ‘natural, low fi’ hands-off approach in the shed.
