The Best French Restaurants in Sydney
Most chefs start their training in classical French cooking, and for good reason: Gallic techniques are the cornerstone of modern cookery. In fact, we owe a lot of our culinary terms to the French. Chefs, sommeliers and maître d’s? All français. The same goes for the front- and back-of-house structures of modern restaurants, which originated in eighteenth-century Paris.
Sydney has no shortage of stellar French restaurants, with a notable showing at the Paris end of Potts Point. From brasseries and bistros to bastions of both haute and nouvelle cuisine, these are our favourites around town.
