La Belle Vie
La Belle Vie is a chic French-inspired restaurant located in the leafy heart of Bardon, owned and operated by a hospitality team boasting experience in some of Europe’s renowned Michelin-starred eateries. The team aims to deliver the same professional service and attention to detail as the best fine diners, but imbued with the casual warmth of your regular neighbourhood locale. La Belle Vie’s head chef Samuel Perrin brings a mastery of French gastronomy to the fore with a deep menu of seductively rich fare, including escargot with garlic and butter, slow-cooked lamb shanks, grilled king prawns skewers with Persian saffron risotto, sous-vide chicken roulade stuffed with prawn, and eye fillet, beurre café de Paris and French fries. The beverage list features a selection of signature cocktails and a stellar wine list, the latter of which favours natural, organic and biodynamic drops, with a fifty-fifty split between French and Australian varieties.
