Bistro Michel is a french restaurant situated on the upper level of the Blubird Shopping Centre in Athol Oaklands.
Serving a traditional french menu, with the likes of duck liver pate and Foie Gras Terrine with toasted brioche, the restaurant is a stylish spot to dine with friends or work colleagues.
The waiters impressed us. Their passion and knowledge of food is refreshing and they are enjoyable to talk to. Very friendly, without being over-bearing, I wish all establishments had this calibre of staff!
Along with the french fare, you are now able to order a burger for lunch. Yes you read correctly – Bistro Michel have added burgers to their lunch time menu.
These burgers are not your average fast food style burger, imagine a giant sesame seed bun filled with good quality meat and some tasty fillings and you have yourself a very filling meal.
I ordered the chicken burger and it was 1 of my favourite chicken burgers to date. Served with soft coconut slices and a piece of compressed pineapple, this burger had a wonderful tropical flavour. The coconut offered a creamy taste while the pineapple lifted it. The chicken was succulent and soft.
The fries are very tasty and served with a homemade tomato relish which was divine.
The next time you are craving a good burger, forego a fast food burger and try out the Bistro Michel Burger!
