A word from The Corner Bistrot

A bistrot is a small restaurant providing house wines and home style cuisine in a warm and friendly environment. The first bistrots were opened in Paris, France, at the beginning of the twentieth century; ‘La Belle Epoque’. Quickly they became very popular, attracting all kinds of clientele, from mr. Nobody to the famous Parisian artists and writers, from the working class to the high society. The small menu and daily dishes guarantee fresh produce, which we are proud to offer you, together with our special Bistrot ambience. Feel at home and enjoy a simple but delicious meal with a nice glass of wine!

I came here last Friday with my significant other. The food was superb. The vegetable crepes were divine, and my tarragon chicken was to die for. My other half had the shallot and red wine skirty steak which was beautifully cooked and tender, juicy and superb. Such an underrated little restaurant. Can't wait to venture back!

This is one of the best restaurants in the city. Perfectly cooked food and something for everyone on the menu with great specials, service friendly and efficient. It is the only place we go where we always leave full and happy and contented. Every time.

My family dined here recently and were thoroughly impressed. The escargot, pate and garlic prawns were brilliant entrees, which we savoured till the very last bite. We chose the porterhouse with blue cheese & peppercorn sauce, pork fillet and fish of the day (perch) dishes and found them to be delicious and perfect in portion size. While the accompanying vegetables and bread were perhaps a touch pricey, the service was professional, yet very friendly and we came away from the meal extremely satisfied.

What a delightful place to eat at for our anniversary. Quaint, slightly rustic, intimate and cosy. We were seated on the balcony over looking the restaurant, which made for a great atmosphere! For entree we ordered Escargot and Vol au vent Prawns and for Mains we had the Braised Lamb and Duck. The meals were sensational, the waiters were attentive, polite and friendly and they have French accents which ads to your experience! I almost didnt want to write a review so i could contribute to keeping one of Adelaide's best little secrets but it was such an enjoyable evening. What makes this place great is that it still feels 'homely' even though you're dining out and the fact that it isnt a typical mainstream restuarant. It's unique.

I spent a 8 months travelling to Adelaide for work and stayed near the area. Over 4 months I ate at the Corner Bistrot 3 or 4 times. I kept going back because I liked the food so much. My favourite is the skirt steak which was always beautifully cooked and tender. I tried other dishes too and they never disappointed. Vic, the owner/chef, always came out to say hello and ask how the meal was. I love this restaurant and will look forward to going back when I'm next in Adelaide.

An authentic french bistro that reminds us of the small bistros in rural France. Delicious, simple food and a romantic dining experience.

Restaurant Patron: 5 years, 11 months ago – Link & Share

My food was delicious, serving portion was a good size, the owner/manager needs to pay attention to all patrons not just the 2 pretty ladies that walk in after my husband and I, needless to say the ladies entree and dinner was served before ours and we arrived and seated first!!! Rude I think. Other wise we had a pleasant dinner

The one and only time I dined at The Corner Bistrot was memorable. It was my birthday, we were dressed up, and the food and the service was incredible. A beautiful French waitress, simple yet perfect crepes, everything was just right. We were seated upstairs. The atmosphere was subdued but elegant - I nice mixed of older regulars and new young types like us. For the main I had the skirt steak and my partner the Poulet à-la-va-vite, both were delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant for romantic night for two. I can't wait to go back.

A small and inviting restaurant, with friendly service. Food was delicious — I had the escargots and lamb medallions and would recommend both. The highlight of the night was the ice cream profiteroles though — can't recommend them enough!

Megalomaniac: 8 years, 10 months ago – Link & Share

Quaint, cute, cosy and charming all at the same time, The Corner Bistrot is utterly and completely drenched with romanticism. The place loves up to its name since from the moment you walk in you feel like you’ve been transported to a Parisian sidewalk ‘corner bistro’. The setting is intimate, with just a handful of tables sprinkled over two floors, faint yellow lighting giving a warm welcoming hue, little wooden tables and petite salon style chairs completing the old world European feel. For a mid-week meal the first floor was running almost completely full, with a good mix of local Australian couples, French speaking couples and a single French gentleman dining alone – seeking out flavours of his home come hell or high water – the true mark of a good French establishment in my opinion! The wine list is a compact, comprehensive mix of French and domestic Aussie wines. To kick-start birthday celebrations we had to of course slurp down a customary glass of French bubbles. We enjoyed an appetiser of classic escargot (French snails) done with a contemporary modern twist – out of the shell, pan-fried in butter and garlic with bacon, walnuts...

thankana: 7 years, 10 months ago – Link & Share

Was really looking forward to eating at this place with my girlfriends. I thought it was a bit pricey for what it was but we gave it a go. Garlic prawns were the best garlic prawns I have had anywhere, amazing! I was very disappointed with the chicken some of the girls ordered. Chicken breast, a bit dry with a bit of watery sauce. One of the girls had steak and altho the mushroom sauce was delicious the steak was tough. I had the duck cooked two ways. The breast was perfectly cooked but the leg was dry. The mushroom and truffle sauce was lovely but I didnt taste the truffles so I actually wondered if there was any truffle in the sauce. We ordered a side of potatoes but for $8 it should have been a decent serving instead it was the size of a mandarin. The bill came out and the pricing was different to the menu, approx $1 more expensive per serve. I didnt make an issue but knew I was going to review it so saved it for now. For the prices the food should be Windy point quality food but sadly it wasn't. The prices should be dropped by about $5 per item. Wouldnt reccommend the place to anyone.
