A couple of mates and I decided to go for a nice meal and night out and with some research ended up at Le Pelican. Being not an adventurous eater, I struggled somewhat with the menu but stuck with the duck and the chicken and had a great meal. The breads were excellent as well and the service was good - very straight to the point with no sense of humour but no issues. We were three pub blokes sitting at the worlds smallest table with a candle in the middle of us so it would have looked a bit strange. Wouldn't be back with my mates but would bring the Mrs here.

Either the other reviews here are possibly fake or something has changed dramatically in the kitchen here.

We had a very poor meal:
- Escargot: tasteless and deep fried in breadcrumbs
- Pate: a bland terrine with no evidence of fois gras accompanied with a roll which possibly came from Woolworths
- Duck: overcooked and rubbery
- Bouillabaise: bland, stale croutons, small

Very expensive for such poor fayre.

We booked a table for 6 people at Le Pelican to celebrate my partner's 50th birthday and had a terrific night. Small, interesting menu, great flavours and generous helpings. Service was very good and the lovely room had a great ambience. 3 courses for $60 was amazing value for food of this standard and BYO was a huge plus. Thanks to Jean-Francois and his staff for a memorable evening. Can't wait to go back!

Great spot for lunch and dinner; it is nice to sit in their courtyard on a sunny day though. Food is great, they have some lighter mediterranean style dishes too that work well at lunch. Last visit's fish dish was let down by a slightly salty potato mille-feuille. Service is very friendly though.

Went to this establishment at 8.15pm and was told the kitchen had closed. So went on the website and saw that the kitchen closed at 8.30pm not 8.15pm. Extremely disappointing and the host at the front of house was very rude about it. Shame because it looks like a lovely place with a good menu. But because of the service experienced, would not return or recommend.
