French
Gavroche Chippendale brings not only classic French cuisine to Sydney, but also accoutrement from the culinary epicentre of the country – like the imposing oakwood entrance from Lyon’s venerable Brasserie Georges, brass-railed banquette seating, oversized carved wooden bar, hand-painted tiled walls, four-metre antique French silk weaver’s table, and 1950 Parisian VeloSoleX motorised bicycle suspended overhead.

Headed by French-born Chef Batiste Gouraud and his team, the menu of Gavroche Chippendale pays homage to Parisian bistros. With an array of classic dishes that capture the Parisian spirit, and a wine list with a mix of hand-selected French and Australian wines, you’ve got the buzz of Paris in the heart of Sydney!

Located inside the heritage-listed historic Old Rum Store located on the bustling Kensington Street in Chippendale. In close proximatey to Sydney's Central Station and University of Technology.

    It was outrageously expensive for what we received. The food was lukewarm, the steak was tough and poorly cooked, the wines were expensive. The broccoli side dish was terrible. The ambience and the service were good

    Gavroche provided a lovely atmosphere. I had escargots for entree-v. nice. Steak frite for main - meat was fatty and plate was overwhelmed with fries - expensive for what it was. Dessert was crepes suzette - Lovely. Wine was very pricey. Service was average, certainly nothing over the top. 2 of the 4 enjoyed the evening.

    It will be better to remind customer if order sole meuniere.(the customer will expect it’s a fillet not a whole fish) Having Whole fish with bones in the restaurant with all the lights are dim is not easy and it might get choked because of the fish bones ,especially the fish is for kids.

    Excellent food &amp; service. We had Tartare De Thon which was very good but could have been a slightly larger portion and a hit of citrus to finish. Escargots de Bourgogne was excellent. Carnard Confit was excellent. Tournedos Rossini was excellent. Chocolate &amp; Mures was excellent. Would recommend and intend to return again sometime soon.

    No regrets for spending my birthday there. Food was great! Ordered duck confit. Tender, easy to eat (especially I have braces) although it was slightly salty for me and my other friend. But we still agree it’s great. Mashed potatoes were the best I tasted so far! Really fine and creamy. Creme brulee was really good, too! Staff were all superb although one blonde slim lady with poker face was one my friends and I weren’t so happy about but the rest of them were very understanding and accommodated us really well.

    The menu was great (if you like French food) and the service was friendly and not pretentious. The restaurant itself was unusually quiet for a Saturday lunch but it was great to catch up with friends there as it was not too loud. When the restaurant is full it could possibly get a bit loud with the acoustics in the place. All the dishes we ordered were great and we finished off with the profiterole tower to share which was amazing (comes with 9 pieces). I would definitely be coming back to try a few more of the dishes.

    this is a great first floor resteraunt in a sea of new places along kensington st . what is great about this place is that it is just very solid european food - cooked well with good ingredients and pleasant service in a comfortable setting. no torches needed to read the menu, you do not have to shout. I understand the menu (even though it is in french) I am not surprised at the remarkable taste of sparrow tongue pate with 30 year old pine nuts because nothing like this is on the menu

    There's so much potential here, the food was OK and the staff are pleasant but not engaging. I received a confirmation text, then reply text to confirm, a confirmation email and a reply email to confirm then finally a phone call to confirm. I don't understand the 3 layer confirmation system - it was just annoying.

    We had a group of 9 friends. Everyone enjoyed this restaurant but we were a little disappointed with the menu. It was Sunday brunch and did not have typical French Favorites. Having said that, the waiter was very helpful and arranged for something off menu. He also said they're reviewing the menuThe food was nice but not exceptional. The service was very friendly and efficient. I will certainly give this restaurant another chance.
