Wonderful wonderful food at lunch and at dinner when Girard is there. Great service, music and vibe. However when Girard is absent the food is still adequate but not of the same high standard as when he is there. The waiters are always friendly and very helpful but it is obvious thatthe other staff when not busy are very interested... More

Chez Girard is an absolute gem, the food is fantastic! You are welcomed with a glass of wine and fresh baguette, and treated to the chef's personal charm as he visits each table to chat and relay the menu for the evening. We were a party of 6 so we were able to taste a variety of dishes and each... More

Chez Girard is now a small restaurant which thrives on the owner's personal touch. Regulars are greeted and welcomed personally by Girard. There is always a friendly buzz. A welcoming glass of wine and baguette find you chatting away until the waiter or Girard take your drinks order. After a suitable pause, Girard runs through the regular menu adding all... More

Welcomed to Chez Girard with a drink which consisted of white wine and strawberry liqueur, plus a fresh French baguette and butter for the table. The dinner menu starters were avocado, feta and bacon, snails, fresh mussels with white wine and cream, and pawpaw and prawn salad. Serving sizes are generous too. Main courses ranged from chateaubriand with pepper and... More

Christiaan's hospitality is out of this world. He goes out of his way to stop past every table to ensure that he has explained all the dishes, the specialties and the best pairings. The food is spectacular and the atmosphere is very quaint.

Met a friend for brunch on Saturday at Chez Girard. Christian provides a really personal touch, coming out to greet guests personally and ensure they are served speedily. His staff are friendly and helpful, but your food gets served by the chef himself. Delicious food, relaxing atosphere and an attentive host! What more can one ask for?

With an innovative and exciting menu combining French cuisine with a relaxed environment, this Bistro has a tradition of excellent food and service. Timeless French Fare, prepared in the exacting but uncomplicated provincial style of Christian's native Maconnais, between the Beaune and Beaujolais in Burgundy in France.
