Bistro Guillaume Melbourne has been inspired by France's most popular neighbourhood bistros. Bistro Guillaume features a plat du jour daily and is equally accommodating for solo diners such as hotel guests as it is for families, small groups and couples alike. Ideally located next to Nobu, Bistro Guillaume features an extensive outdoor terrace, a hallmark of the world's best bistros, a zinc-topped bar, a private room and a spacious, welcoming dining area.
