It's hidden behind huge black doors in one of the city's historic sandstone buildings, but once you're inside you'd swear you were in Paris. Dark-wood paneling, black-and-white photographs, and mirrors bearing the day's specials in flowing script lend a bistro feel. The fare is predominately Italian with a sprinkling of French fare and Mod-Oz dishes. Being in the heart of the city, it's also popular at breakfast where the delicious crab omelette makes an exotic start to the work day. At dinner you can't go wrong with the popular cracked pepper spaghettini with a sautee of Yamba prawns, chilli, and garlic. A pre- or postmeal drink in the marble-lined, chandelier-adorned Bambini Wine Room is a must.
