Ambience is great. Food tasty but small portions that would leave you hungry if just ordering a main. The problem was the false hard copy and online advertising: all you can eat mussels and frites on a Thursday night for $29. However, when placing the order for the mussels, we were told they were $39 unless we ordered a glass of wine. Nowhere in their hard-copy or online advertising was there information to warn us about this special condition. When we addressed this with the owner, his response was: there wasn't room on the flyer. He did not want to budge from his position, which pretty much put a serious dent in the pleasure of a birthday dinner. Eventually, because we persisted expressing our concern, and because we were drinking beer, he allowed us to have the mussels at $29.

I liked Loluk and yes I would recommend it.
Never go to a new place with anticipation of expectation; that will ruin your enjoyment of the night.
The Staff were nice, the Food was good and it was a pleasant experience.
I particularly enjoyed the Lavender Creme Brulee.
If you have never had Racelette Cheese before, be prepared! I for one, being a cheese lover, look forwarded in attending one of their cheese nights. Nice wine too, no complaints from the wife.

Everything was absolutely amazing! Atmosphere, food, staff!
We had the pink duck and the steak for our mains which were both cooked to perfection and still so soft and flavorful.
The only thing I would say was that the lavender Martini was a bit much alcohol wise even for a martini. But everything else was amazing. 10/10 would go there again

Charming sandstone cottage. French speaking waiter. Traditional French fare that was very well executed. I had steak tartare and Monkfish in a Provencale sauce . Both were delicious. We finished with a cheese platter which was small but again delicious. A lovely night!

We love this restaurant. Been there six times in four months. Menu is great, food is excellent and very fresh. Wine list is small but very good with some really lovely French wines. Last time we had a wonderful Chablis and terrific Pauliac. My favorite main is the beef, my wife swears by the duck. Give it a go you’ll be back.

Brilliant food, great service, fantastic people watching spot and great for conversation but only IF you can sit outside. The only downside to this fabulous places is the too loud, far from atmospheric and not so soothing music played inside the restaurant. A shame as it is a lovely setting - the music shouldn't distract from the atmosphere, food and good service

Delicious authentic french flavours with unfussy but superbly cooked food. Friendly ambience from the exterior sandstone of terrace on Bourke St to open courtyard at the back with a cosy dining room and visible kitchen . Wish this was my local. Popular and full on a wed evening . Cheese lovers delight. Local and french wines . Bitcoin accepted. Do make a reservation .

The service was impeccable - friendly, efficient and the waiters and waitresses were fun to chat with. The venue is very nicely done up and feels very homely. The food was excellent and the prices were reasonable.

The only thing is that the portions were a bit small, but that seems to be the way these days with restaurants.

I would thoroughly recommend Loluk for any occasion!

The food and wine was delicious. We ordered the cheese soufflé and carpaccio for entrees and they were fabulous. Unfortunately I wasn't asked how I wanted my beef cooked and it came out too red/bloody for me. I had to send it back and when it returned one piece was perfect the other looked the same.
We were too full to have desserts ...but will return to try them as the menu looked very good too
