Les Bistronomes Bliss #canberra #bistro

Beautiful lunch for early Mother’s Day celebration at Les Bistronome – a gem hidden away at the Campbell shops in Canberra. Chef owner Clement Chauvin has created a little haven of French cuisine.


Lunch degustation of 5 course for $65 per person was deliciously divine …matched with Canberra local wines from #Clonakilla and Lark Hill.

Great produce, great atmosphere, great service and great food! Would love to go back for the dinner degustation next time.

Warm, inviting with great service…Les Bis as it is affectionately known in Campbell, Canberra

Thanks to my family for such a lovely Mother’s Day weekend!

Shedding new light on modern Australian dining #Lamshed #canberra

Brilliant dinner at Lamshed in Canberra on Friday night. Waiter suggested AUD$45pp shared plates but we got to choose what we wanted from the menu.

Started with fennel cured kingfish with orange, tarragon and lightly pickled fennel. The combination of flavours was perfect. This was followed by Sweet potato “schnitzel” with tzatziki…the sweet potato was crumbs and deep fried but the cool yoghurt cucumber tzatziki made it all feel healthy and fresh!

The wine list is excellent and we enjoyed a beautiful Rose and moving to an Albariño as we progressed through the various dishes.

One of the specials was the slow cooked lamb neck perfectly spiced with what tasted like all-spice and wrapped into cabbage rolls and garnished with dill. Another special was pan-fried fish of the day with a sweet pea puréed sauce, peas and pea tendrils.

The eggplant tempura with white miso was divine as was the the pressed oxtail, celeriac and fregola.

Every course was an imaginative combination of ingredients and flavours delivering an overall excellent dining experience.

We finished the meal with cheese and a bottle of 2015 Campbell’s of Rutherglen Durif.

The restaurant that is in Yarralumla is minimalist but warm and the open kitchen adds a buzz of activity and atmosphere to the dining room.

We went with a party of 6 which was great for trying lots of dishes.
